How many of the Mac’s many keyboard shortcuts do you know? The basics are obvious. Command-C to copy, Command-P to print, Command-Q to quit, Command-X to cut, and Command-V to insert the clipboard’s contents.
How about all the rest? That’s a different story. The list grows even longer when you add in each Mac app’s keyboard shortcuts. That’s right. Mac apps have their own set of keyboard shortcuts to complement the system-wide shortcuts in OS X.
The easiest way to find, learn, and use keyboard shortcuts on the Mac is with the KeyCue app. Think of it as a cheat sheet for all the keyboard shortcuts for each app. While using a particular app, hit the hotkey combo to invoke KeyCue, and it displays all the keyboard shortcuts for the app.
The latest version of KeyCue also has multiple themed color schemes to match your whimsy of the moment. You can also search for keyboard commands and other shortcuts for each app (mouseless, trackpadless searching). For apps that do not display all their keyboard shortcuts in the Menubar menus, KeyCue can reveal them all.
There’s no easier, faster, and more expensive way to learn all the Mac’s keyboard shortcuts, and the shortcuts for each Mac app. KeyCue is highly recommended. I’ve been a fan for years.
