After just having moved to macOS as my main laptop after a lifetime of Windows, (I’ll let you all know how that goes) it’s remarkable to notice that, in my experience, macOS is built for mouse usage.
That does not mean things are not feasible with a keyboard, though. This article sums up the most useful keyboard shortcuts I have come across while working with macOS.
This list will start rather small, but will grow as I encounter more use cases, and thus, more key combinations.
|Command-BackSpace||Delete selected files|
|Shift-Option-Command-4||Create a screenshot from a selectable area and copy it to the keyboard|
|Command-D||Add to favorites (imagine being a lifelong Windows User… 🥲)|
|Command-C||Copy selection to clipboard|
|Command-X||Cut selection to clipboard|
|Command-V||Paste selection from clipboard|
|Command-L||In browser, set focus on the address bar|
