Mac Keyboard Shortcuts everyone needs to know

There’s plenty of handy Mac keyboard shortcuts out there which can help make your life a lot easier! Here are just a few that we find the most useful.

COMMAND+SPACE

This brings up the Spotlight feature, allowing you to search your entire Mac.

SHIFT+OPTION

Did you know there’s more than just the 16 levels of brightness and volume on your Mac? Why not try out this shortcut by holding Shift+Option as you adjust your volume or brightness for a smaller increase or decrease.

COMMAND+OPTION+ESC

Press these keys if you need to force quit any applications.

COMMAND+SHIFT+3

Use this to take a screenshot of your entire screen.

COMMAND+SHIFT+4

If you only want to take a screenshot of a certain part of the screen, this is a better option!

COMMAND+COMMA (,)

You can find any application’s preferences this way.

COMMAND+SHIFT+T

Sometimes we accidentally click the little red X button in the corner of a tab we didn’t mean to. Fear not, as this will open up your last closed tab.

COMMAND+M

This minimises the window you currently have open to your Dock, so there’s no need to close them down.

COMMAND+LEFT/RIGHT ARROW

If you want to go back a page in your web browser, use the left arrow, and then the right arrow to go forward again.
