OS X :: Changing Switch Between Spaces - Shortcut Key To Option Tab?

Oct 28, 2010

I've been searching in vain around the internet for a few days now for a way to change the hotkey for switching between spaces (by default, option-arrow keys, though I have changed it to command-option-arrow keys) to option-tab and shift-option-tab. To be more specific, I'd like option-tab to switch to the space to the right, and shift-option-tab to switch to the space to the left. I have downloaded BetterTouchTool (http://blog.boastr.net/?page_id=1722), and it can assign any shortcut key to the simple option of bringing up the spaces interface itself, but I can't find a way to assign a different shortcut key to actually switching spaces. Interestingly, using that app, I was able to assign a five finger swipe (which blew my mind, by the way) in the corresponding direction for which space I wanted to switch to by assigning the gesture to the shortcut key for switching spaces (so, five finger swipe to the right is assigned to command-option-right arrow).

OS X :: Changing Safari Tab Switch Shortcut

Mar 23, 2008

I was just wondering if there was a way to change the short cut key combination for switching tabs on safari. I wanted to change it to something like cmd and arrow direction instead of using cmd + shift + [ or ] for directions.

OS X :: How Can I Set Up Keyboard Shortcut For Spaces

Aug 16, 2009

It wasn't until I got my new MPB that I realized how much I use Spaces on a daily basis, when I had my whitebook.

I've set up Spaces on my new uMBP but can't find a way to "view all my spaces." You know, the overview look of spaces, when you can see all your spaces at a glance and click to switch on whichever space you wanna enter.

Well, I can't for the life of my figure out how to set up a keyboard shortcut for this. Back on my whitebook it was always set to F10, but looking at the new layout of buttons on the top row of the keyboard, there are some buttons I'd like to leaver untouched.

F1+F2: Screen brightness controls I'd like to leave untouch since they're obviously useful.

F3: This is Expose right? Giving me a view of all open windows. Well, can't I just do this already by moving 4 fingers downward on the trackpad? If that's the case, which I think it is I wouldn't mind assigning F3 a different shortcut, like Spaces. But how?

F4: Dashboard. On the whitebook it was always F12, guess it'll just take some getting used to.

F5+F6: Backlit keyboard dimmers, i'm fine leaving thouse as is.

F7-F12: Controls media with the back, play/pause, next button which I love & the sound controls which I don't mind.

In System Prefs. in Spaces I'll set "Activate Spaces" to F3 but still F3 will do Expose. I'm not sure how to change this.

& I have no idea what secondary mouse click or middle mouse button is...i'm guessing this has to do with mighty mouse? Me no have one, just using the trackpad..

OS X :: Cursor Shortcut For Switching Spaces

Aug 2, 2010

I had a shortcut or a bug yesterday which went away after I restarted the computer. It was switching spaces when I move the cursor to each side of the screen. Example: when I move the cursor all the way to the right of the screen, it would switch to space 2. Down would go to space 3 or 4 depending. I want this feature back but wasn't able to find it. I am running 10.6.4 btw.

OS X :: Three Spaces Won't Allow To Directly Switch

Dec 24, 2008

I have Spaces set up to "switch directly to a space" using command+# For some reason, however, Spaces will only switch directly to Space # No matter what applications I have chosen for Spaces 2, 3, and 4, Spaces will NOT directly switch to them using the shortcut. I can still switch to them manually with command+arrow keys, though. It doesn't matter what application I choose as Space 1... I can directly switch to it. But the other 3 spaces just won't allow me to directly switch. (Yes, there's applications open and active in each of those spaces.) Anybody encounter this or know what's up?

OS X :: Cannot Switch Between Spaces Anymore

Sep 5, 2009

I've been using spaces ever since I bought my macbook pro and found it very useful. But after installing snow leopard, I haven't been able to use it properly. I currently have spaces enabled and have 2 spaces... when I activate spaces to show all spaces, I used to be able to switch between them by clicking on the space that I wanted to move to... however, I can't do that now. Every time I want to switch between the spaces, I also go back to the one I was already on.

OS X :: Keyboard Shortcut To Enable / Disable Spaces?

Sep 5, 2009

When at home I use a 30" 2560x1600 display and as you can imagine, it has quite a bit of real estate for windows. So when I'm at home I'd prefer to not use Spaces since it doesn't give me any extra. However, at work I use a 24" 1920x1200 and when on the move I use my Macbook Pro's 1280x800 display and on those Spaces is highly beneficial. So is there any way to set up a keyboard shortcut to enable or disable Spaces so I don't have to go uncheck Enable Spaces in System Preferences?

Software :: Can't Use The Keyboard Shortcuts To Switch Between Spaces?

Sep 25, 2008

Today I upgraded from mac os 10.5.3 to 10.5.5, and now whenever I play World of Warcraft, I can't use the keyboard shortcuts to switch between spaces. Since I am an AVID spaces use (particularly when playing WoW), I am determined to find an elegant solution to this beyond reinstalling an older version of leopard.

That being said, on Windows I would start tinkering with the registry, seeing if there is a setting that may have been switched for full-screen applications that prevented the use of the shortcuts, etc. And, after doing some digging, I did find some basic files for Spaces (Resources, XML .plists, etc), but couldn't find anything like the registry where the settings are laid out.is there such a thing? If so, how do I find/tinker with it?

I realize that you're encouraged NEVER to mess w/system settings blah blah etc... I've got everything backed up on the machine and could format/reinstall without any issues.

OS X :: Spaces Shortcut Keys - No Longer Work - System Preferences Being Unassigned?

Aug 2, 2009

Whenever I assign shortcut keys to Spaces using the Expose' & Spaces panel in System Preferences, it seems that in a day or two the shortcut keys no longer work and System Preferences shows them as being unassigned. I thought there may be a conflict with another shortcut but there isn't - at least according to the Keyboard & Mouse panel in System Preferences. This happens on both my MBP and my iMac as well as on the PowerMac I recently sold. I've tried other keys and combinations but with the same results. I've also experienced this in all versions of Leopard including the current 10.5.7. I'm using F8 to activate Spaces, Command + Option + Arrow key to switch between Spaces and Command + Option + Number key to switch directly to a Space. Has anyone else experienced this?

Using the official AIM client on my PC, I can switch conversation tabs with ctrl-tab. On Mac, however, I can't seem to figure out any key combination that allows me to switch tabs. Is there a shortkey or any way to enable a shortkey?

If not, is there an alternative AIM client that supports tabs, chat history logging, and preferably direct IM?

MacBook Pro :: Shortcut To Switch To 9600M Graphics Card?

Dec 30, 2009

I like to keep my laptop cool, so I usually run on the integrated 9400 graphics chip. But lately I've been finding myself playing a lot of games on my unibody mbp. However, it gets kind of tedious to have to continually switch over to the "better performance" 9600M option in energy saver. Instead of opening energy saver, clicking "better performance" and then restarting, is there a simple applescript or shortcut I can just double click that will do all this for me? I'd like to just place that script on the desktop and call it "play games" or something." I know it's a small inconvenience, but does anyone have a solution? Or can anyone make a simple automator or applescript to handle this?

Mac Pro :: OSX 10.7.5 / Can't Get Option To Switch Screen Resolution To 1920 X 1200

Jun 3, 2014

I'm using a temporary monitor while my trusty old Mac HD Cinema Display is in the shop getting fixed. 

As a stopgap I am using a Samsung T190.  

My computer is a Mac Pro tower. I'm running 10.7.5 (Lion) as I'm still working with Final Cut Pro 7. 

I can't get an option to switch the screen resolution to 1920 x 1200 

I can go no higher than 1440 x 900. 

In my quest for a solution I read something about the option key and the "scaled radio button" in the display preferences. 

I don't see a "scaled radio button" in the preferences. 

Here's what the Display Preferences look like:

Final Cut Pro 7, Mac OS X (10.7.5), Mac Pro

I am not that new of a mac user, but one of the biggest things that Im having trouble with coming from windows is that in windows when you get a dialogue box it comes with a selected option, pressing enter would automatically activate the selected option. Now this is the same in OSX, but in windows you could press tab and the highlighted option would change. For example, in a save dont save box, how do I change the blue shadow without making a trip to the mouse?

MacBook Pro :: Should I Switch From 13" Pro To 15" Pro? - Look At The Spaces Inside It

Jun 24, 2010

I have a 2.66ghz 4gb ram sd model with 320hd 13"I have a friend who is selling a 15" pro 3.06ghz 8gb ram 500gbNow I also have an ipad but I love the portability of the 13" although I realized playing with his the 15" isn't THAT much bigger....What are the major differences between them considering they are both core2duo, and where would I notice the speed or ram difference or even the graphics difference? More importantly tell me a real good reasonable price I should pay considering the new model is out with the i5 and i7 but yet the processor is slower than 3.06 as well.. what is an insane good deal?

OS X :: Changing Alt / Option Key Performs Expose Function

Jan 31, 2010

I am new to MacRumors Forums and I have a problem with both my Alt/Option Key and the left side Command Key on my MacBook Pro. Basically, whenever pressed the Alt/Option Key performs the "Expose" function revealing all the open windows so that I cant ever actually use the Alt/Option key in various key commands with different programs. Also, the left side Command Key, whenever pressed, hides all my open windows to reveal the Desktop, but thankfully there is a right side Command Key to my keyboard that I can use. Now, Ive gone into the System Preferences and tried to alter the Keyboard short-cut commands as well as restore the defaults to no avail, I just cant seem to get it to revert back to normalcy - I need this key to work right so that I can do the necessary shortcuts in Logic Pro.
