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.

  1. Open up System Preferences.
  2. Click on the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane.
  3. This should load a new window with the following 4 tabs: Keyboard, Mouse, Bluetooth, and Keyboard Shortcuts.
  4. Click on the Keyboard Shortcuts tab.
  5. A list of all the built-in keyboard shortcuts should show up.
  6. Looking down near the bottom left screen ofthe window for a “+” sign.
  7. There should be a window pop-up where you setup the shortcut .
  8. Be aware that the keyboard shortcut you make could already be in use, so check ahead before making your shortcut.
  9. 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.
