There are so many keyboard shortcuts. Many of which aren’t easily advertised or known.

I used to run a training course for Apple targeted to mac beginners/switchers which had a whole section on using the keyboard, mouse and trackpad and all their ‘tricks’. I don’t know if I still have the cheat sheets I had, I’ll see if I can find them incase I have any other good ones to share .

Thanks for sharing this

I agree, and I have also taught Mac classes. I was amazed at how few want to use shortcuts and would rely on menus.  I still sometimes forget a shortcut and have to look at the menu. And for a while, with keyboard shortcuts apps, you could create a whole lot more. Done right, you can actually run a Mac without a mouse!  :-)

I wish I could always use shortcuts but there are too many to remember. At my age, I’m lucky to remember things I did yesterday, LOL. 🤣🤣 I do use some of them though.

Here’s a good link for Mac Shortcuts: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201236
