OS X Shortcuts

by Juan on April 15th, 2007

Creativebits.org has compiled together most, if not all the OS X shortcuts available. If you’re like me and you want other people to think you’re a Mac power user, this list is helpful for you. Nothing says you’re a Mac guru, than rapidly typing short commands to accomplish tasks that would normally take a few more mouse clicks.

Some of the commands I regularly use are:

  • “Command-Shift-3″ = Take a picture of the screen
  • “Command-Shift-4″ = Take a picture of the selection
  • “Option-Command-esc” = Force Quit
  • “Control-Eject” = Restart, Sleep, Shutdown dialog box
  • “Control-Command-Eject” = Quit all applications and restart
  • “Command-N” = File Menu New Finder window
  • “Shift-Command-N” = File Menu New Folder
  • “Command-O” = File Menu Open
  • “Command-S” = File Menu Save
  • “Command-P” = File Menu Print
  • “Command-W” = File Menu Close Window

Check out the shortcuts at Creativebits and make your life a little bit easier.
