Apple keyboard shortcuts you need to know

Apple keyboard shortcuts you need to know


 

One of the most useful tools in the quest for productivity in office work is the use of keyboard shortcuts. The proper shortcuts can turn your keyboard from a writing tool into a command center for your computer.

The proprietary keys can be overwhelming at first, but they are great shortcuts to make your work easier. There are the old faithfuls, such as cut and paste, but you can take it so much further.

Here are some Mac keyboard shortcuts that will improve your workflow.

Command + Tab

This key combination will allow you to cycle through open applications. Start by holding down the "command" key and pressing "tab" to cycle through applications. Each time you press tab, it will switch to the next application that is open

Command + Spacebar

This shortcut simply opens the spotlight search and moves your cursor into the search bar.

Option + Shift + Command + V

This shortcut is a life-saver for anyone who regularly works in Safari. This is the shortcut for "Paste and Match Style," which basically means you can copy and paste something without its previous formatting.

Command + Shift + 3

If you need to quickly take a screenshot of your full screen, this shortcut will do that, and save it as a file on your desktop. If you modify it as Command + Shift + Control + 3, it will save it to the clipboard.

Command + Shift + 4

If you want to screenshot a selection from your screen, this shortcut will give you the option to select what you want in a box and save it as a file on your desktop. If you modify it as Command + Shift + Control + 4, it will save it to the clipboard.

Command + Shift + G

When you have a finder window open, use this shortcut to open a direct line to a specific folder. Simply put the folder path in the space that appears and it will take you directly to the folder.

Command + Semicolon

Use this shortcut to find all misspelled words in a given document. By holding command and continuously hitting the semicolon (;) it will cycle through the misspelled words. Modify this as Command + Colon (Shift + Semicolon) to open the spelling and grammar window.

Command + F

This shortcut will find text in a document, using search bar functionality.

Command + H

Hide the windows of the application that is currently running. Modify as Command + Option + H to hide windows of other applications that are running.

Command + Bracket

By pressing "command" and the left bracket ([) you can move to the previous folder. By pressing, "command" and the right bracket (]) you can move to the next folder.

Command + Z

While fairly common, this shortcut is an important one. Use this to "undo" the previous action.

Command + Shift + Z

This shortcut operates as a "redo" functionality to put back the last change that was undone with an "undo" function.

Shift + Control + Power button

If you use multiple displays this will be helpful. This combination immediately puts all displays to sleep.

Command + Arrow

While working in text, use the command key with one of the arrow keys to move the cursor to different parts of a document. Using command with the left arrow key will move it to the beginning of the current line, while using it with the right arrow key will move it to the end of the current line. Using it with the up arrow will move it to the beginning of the document, while the down arrow will move it to the end of the document.

Control + D

For those who may have moved from a PC to a Mac, this shortcut will operate like the delete key on a Windows PC, deleting the character in front of your cursor.

Command + Accent (`)

In the currently front running application, using this shortcut will activate the next window in line in that application. Modifying this as Command + Shift + Accent will activate the previous window in the application.

Command + Option + A

This is the companion shortcut for the commonly used Command + A shortcut for select all. Using Command + Option + A will deselect all selected items.

Command + I

Once you have selected a file or folder, use this shortcut to quickly get the information on the file or folder that is selected.

Option + Double-click

This shortcut opens a folder in a separate window, while simultaneously closing the current window.

Command + Delete

Using this shortcut will move any selected items to the trash. Modifying this shortcut as Command + Shift + Delete will empty the trash, and modifying it as Command + Shift + Option + Delete will empty the trash without the confirmation dialog box.
