Most of the projects that we work on involve either development or testing on MAC. It is, therefore, essential to know the keyboard shortcuts for MAC. Often the novices find it extremely difficult to garner the required information (in the case of PC Keyboard for MAC), so to make things easy the commonly used MAC commands are compiled and listed in this section.

Before moving on to the shortcuts, the user should be familiar with the keyboard equivalents. The PC equivalent of the MAC keys are as follows :

  • Windows Control Key > MAC Command key
  • Windows Alt Key > MAC Option key
  • Windows Enter key > MAC Return key
  • Windows Backspace key > MAC Delete key

Now let's go through the commands.

  • Command-X -> Cut the item to remove it.
  • Command-C -> Copy the selected item.
  • Command-V -> Paste the contents.
  • Command-Z -> Undo the previous command.
  • Command-Shift-Z -> Redo action for reversing the undo command.
  • Command-A -> Select all items.
  • Command-F -> Find items in a document.
  • Command-N -> Open a new window.
  • Command-S -> Save the current document.
  • Command-Q -> Quit the app.
  • Option-Command-Esc -> Choose an app to force quit.
  • Shift-Command-3 -> Take a screenshot of the entire screen (The screenshot will saved as a .png file on your desktop).
  • Control-L -> Center the cursor or selection in the visible area.
  • Option-Command-I -> Show or hide the inspector window.
  • Shift–Left Arrow -> For extending the text selection one character to the left.
  • Shift–Right Arrow -> For extending the text selection one character to the right.
  • Shift–Up Arrow -> For extending the text selection to the nearest character at the same horizontal location on the line above.
  • Shift–Down Arrow -> For extending the text selection to the nearest character at the same horizontal location on the line below.
  • Command–Up Arrow -> For moving the insertion point to the beginning of the current document.
  • Command–Down Arrow -> For moving the insertion point to the end of the current document.
  • Command–Left Arrow -> For moving the insertion point to the beginning of the current line.
  • Command–Right Arrow -> For moving the insertion point to the end of the current line.
  • In order to rename an item, select the item and click Enter key and type.

Hope this helps!

Linux is the epitome of the FLOSS model. Technical Solution Linux installation Leave a reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Dewey J. Corl (not verified) access_time 01 Dec 2020 - 11:09 Linux is not ready for the general public! (I am a Ubuntu user). For proof, 1. try to simply print labels on a Dymo label printer. It takes a LOT of work to get to the ease of label printing already available in Windows and Mac. 2. try syncing a modern Palm based PDA. Yes, jpilot and others will sync the main data, but pictures and midi files do not get transferred without a lot of extra setup. These are examples of applications that are not ready for the general public. Since an operating system only supports applications, Linux is not ready to be a common desktop for the general public. While we are waiting for the applications to catch up, keep up the good work!! Anoop John (not verified) access_time 01 Dec 2020 - 11:09 Dewey Yes you may be right. But these are not applications that a common man would use. A common man would use one of these applications - Internet browser, Chat Client, Email Client, Document Writer, Presentation Creator, Spreadsheet Editor, Movie Viewer, Music Player, CD/DVD Writer. Both examples you cited are more specific applications that only a small percentage of the whole population uses. It will take time before those hardware vendors identify the need from their perspective to address the Linux community. Krishnadas (not verified) access_time 01 Dec 2020 - 11:09 Dear Mr Anoop, Thank you very much for the free installation of LINUX done in my PC. I am getting immersed in the LINUX and seeing the versatility. To my surprise, I am able to read one of my old backup CD(wherein lot of my valuable file exist) done in DIRECT CD wizard (a custom cd writing software of Easy Cd creator in WIN98) which could not be read in XP. Installation of old version of easycd creator/direct cd program was not possible in XP. I thought that possible i lost all data. Very pleasant start! Srikanth N. S. (not verified) access_time 01 Dec 2020 - 11:09 Hi Anoop, My friend is thrilled with Ubuntu. One of his grouses with windows was that after OS installation, everything else is to be installed separately which is a real headache. WHereas if u install Linux, everything is installed as a package and he is thrilled to bits! Let linux installation spread in Trivandrum and your service in this direction is highly appreciated. Kepp up the good work Regards. PDA Freak (not verified) access_time 01 Dec 2020 - 11:09 Is it possible to install linux on a packardbell notebook ?
