I love keeping my hands on my keyboard not only because it is a huge time saver, but it is also pretty darn comfortable not having to switch back and forth between the mouse and keyboard. To solve this problem, I made some keyboard shortcuts within System Preferences.
- Open up System Preferences.
- Click on the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane.
- This should load a new window with the following 4 tabs: Keyboard, Mouse, Bluetooth, and Keyboard Shortcuts.
- Click on the Keyboard Shortcuts tab.
- A list of all the built-in keyboard shortcuts should show up.
- Looking down near the bottom left screen ofthe window for a “+” sign.
- There should be a window pop-up where you setup the shortcut .
- Be aware that the keyboard shortcut you make could already be in use, so check ahead before making your shortcut.
- When you’re choosing which application to add the shortcut to and the application does not show up on the pop-down menu, click on ‘Other…’ at the very bottom and select another app.
