Very strange- all my trusty default keyboard shortcuts, i.e cmd-shift-3, cmd-tab, F12, etc. No longer work! I've fiddled around in various system pref's but no luck. White MacBook, OS X v10.5.7.

OS X :: F-key Keyboard Shortcuts Stopped Working / Restored Default Under Preferences

Feb 3, 2010

On my MBP under Snow Leopard, the F-key keyboard shortcuts (e.g. Ctrl-F2 (select menu)) suddenly stopped working. This might have happened after a recent OS-update, I'm not sure. Anyone else have this problem, or a possible solution?

I've already pressed restore default under Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts*, this made no difference.

Mac Pro :: Keyboard Shortcuts Stopped Working?

Aug 20, 2014

I have just added a new, larger internal hard drive and carbon copy cloned everything on my old HD to this new one. It seemed like everything was ok, but at some point ALL my key commands stopped working: com-q, com-i, all the keyboard shortcuts in my applications and in finder.

MacBook Pro :: Switching Keyboard Shortcuts Isn't Working?

Apr 1, 2012

Somehow my keyboard shortcuts got switched, and the dashboard shortcut is now assigned to the F12 key. It says that in order to switch a keyboard shortcut, just double click and hold down the new shortcut key, but that's not working!

MacBook Pro :: After Update Keyboard Shortcuts For Volume Control Not Working

Mar 12, 2012

I recently ran an update for my Macbook Pro. After the update, the volume keyboard shortcut does not work.I have the setting for the function keys to work like normal function keys so I have to press the fn key to change the volume. This does not work and changing the setting does not work. I cannot add a shortcut either. Whenever I push the shortcut, I get a grayed out screen with a symbol showing that I cannot change the volume. I can still make changes by clicking on the volume symbol at the top of my screen but I really need the shortcut back.

OS X :: Keyboard Shortcuts Stopped Working / Unable To Cut Paste From Mail Message

Jan 29, 2009

Everthing's been fine since I first setup my Mac Mini over a year ago....2 or 3 days ago I noticed when I tried to do a cut/paste from a mail message to a field (using Cmd-C Cmd-V) in a web page, it didn't work. It's alsways worked before but I chalked it up to the web form not taking "pasted" input. But then I tried from a text document to an email...same story. I highlight text with the mouse, do Cmd-C and get a "bong" sound, then go to where I want to paste, do a Cmd-V and nothing gets pasted. I take it the "bong" means some sort of error or invalid input occured?

I restarted the Mini and it worked for a while (at least when I tried it right after logging in). Then yesterday I had to restart my Mini again and the shortcuts aren't working again. If I highlight text and then right-click the mouse and select copy, then move to where I want to paste and right-click and select paste it works fine....just the keyboard shortcuts don't work. I checked the sytem prefs, keyboard pane and saw nothing out of the ordinary.....any ideas out there?

OS X :: Eye TV Keyboard Shortcuts

Mar 24, 2008

I have given up with the Apple remote on eyetv as I cant get the grip of turning the menu on and off, I keep turning front row on.

I have the small apple wireless keyboard and would rather use this for all my eyetv tasks but dont want to have to use the mouse to operate the remote controller on screen.

In an ideal world I would like to reassign the following keys

F6 - Eye TV menu
F7 - Fast Rewind
F8 - Play/Pause
F9 - Fast Forward

OS X :: Keyboard Shortcuts For 10 - 16 Spaces

Oct 27, 2007

However, I found a problem. I have 16 spaces. But the keyboard shortcuts only allow me to jump to Spaces 1 - 9 with (Ctrl or ^ - (Space No.)) For example, if I were to jump to Space 8 from any space I would press ^ - 8. However, how do I use the shortcut for 10 - 16? I tried pressing ^ - 10. But it simply brings me back to Space 1 as it recognizes the first digit only.

OS X :: Keyboard Shortcuts Navigation

Mar 23, 2009

I am learning the keyboard and navigation. I have been heavily keyboard-oriented and prefer a keyboard shortcut when they are available. I have looked around for some but am unable to find them. It seems that some things just require the mouse.

An example would be navigating the mailboxes in Mail. Seems there is no keystroke to move up and down to select a mailbox, nor to "expand all" in the mailboxes pane. Instead each flippy triangle has to be clicked, which is quite tedious during my mail conversion process.

OS X :: Keyboard Shortcuts For Videos?

Sep 3, 2009

I'm using Snow Leopard on an iMac 2.66 GHz Core 2 Duo. Anyway, what I'm trying to do is go into Keyboard Shortcuts under System Prefs. and put in an 'All Applications" shortcut for the play/pause command. Is there any way to do this? It says put in the exact name of the command, and when I put in either Play, Pause, or Play/Pause, it did nothing in iTunes. Surely there's a way? I'd really like to be able to do this, as I'm considering switching to an old keyboard soon that doesn't have the play/pause button.

OS X :: Using Keyboard Shortcuts To Move Between Spaces

Nov 9, 2010

I am trying to figure out how to use keyboard shortcuts to move from one Space to another. Online, it says it's ctrl + arrows. But when I do that, either nothing happens, or something related to the particular window I am focusing on happens (if I'm in safari, ctrl + up will take me to the top of the page it is currently displaying).

OS X :: Setting Up Spaces Keyboard Shortcuts

Jun 11, 2008

I switched over to Mac last week (new Macbook with Leopard) and set up the Spaces keyboard shortcuts (control and arrow keys or number keys to switch between spaces), and they worked fine, but now for some reason they don't: when I do control-1, I go back to the 1st space, but it doesn't work for any of my other 3 spaces. Control-left arrow will get me from space 2 to space 1, but the rest of the control-arrow keys don't work. I'm in Firefox 3 now, and Control-2 brings me to the search window that I opened before I started this thread, while control-3 and control-4 just make my mouse disappear until I move it again. What happened to my Spaces shortcuts?

OS X :: Keyboard Shortcuts Reverting On Restart

Aug 15, 2008

Every time I go into Keyboard and Mouse in System Preferences, the Keyboard Shortcuts window always warns me that two actions (Input Source ones and Spotlight ones) have the same shortcuts, so I change one of them and quit, but I just get the alert sound and nothing happens. Also, every time I restart, the shortcuts are immediately reverted, so that the two actions have the same shortcut again. I finally solved it by simply installing some updates with Software Update, the most recent ones being Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update, QuickTime, and Security Updates 2008-005 and -007.

OS X :: Keyboard Shortcuts And Broken Keys

Mar 2, 2009

Someone spilled something on my delete key and it was pretty sticky so I decided to take it out and clean it. After a few minutes of picking the key to get it out, it relinquished itself and I wiped it off. I then put it back on and now it simply doesn't work when I press it. Am I going to have to go to the professionals to fix it? I later did the same to my Volume Up key to see how I may have screwed up the delete key and it inevitably messed up as well. For a short time my trackpad wouldn't tap when I tapped it so I had to go into the system preferences and turn off the function of the trackpad ignoring accidental taps on the keyboard or something for it to work, so my delete key must currently be pushed down but not functioning correctly (I don't know). Then I somehow crewed up my keyboard shortcuts and now some functions work while others do nothing. On word I can use the shortcuts to save and underline, but can't use them to bold and undo. I use the latter more than the former and I don't have a clue as to why this has happened.

OS X :: Lost Keyboard Shortcuts Guide For Mac

Nov 13, 2009

When I bought my first Mac (macbook) a couple of years ago, I read on this or on another forum about a link where I could print a nice, compact, fold-up, page of keyboard shortcuts. It printed out into 8 small sections on 1 page and was designed to be folded up very compactly and portable. Does anyone remember where I might have got this? I've lost one and the other got wet. I've tried googling with no luck.

OS X :: Changing Keyboard Shortcuts (Fn Keys)

May 22, 2010

I have one of the new Macbook Pros. The F4 key has a little picture of the dashboard on it, hit that key and the dashboard pops up. I don't use dashboard enough to have it warrant its own key. So I don't want that, I want what I had on my iBook - I hit one of the function keys and Expose shows me the open windows for the application I'm in. I think fine, I'll just repurpose the F4 key. So into keyboard>keyboard shortcuts in system preferences, double click the Expose shortcut for Application Windows and make it F4.

The Dashboard still pops up for F4. Go into the keyboard tab and check the box that reads: "use all F1 F2 etc keys as standard function keys" and tada, the F4 key now does what I want. But obviously the volume keys etc now don't. So I thought I'd just go into keyboard shortcuts and set all the shortcuts to match the pictures on the keys. But I can't find most of them. I've got to be missing a trick - I know if I uncheck that function keys box again I can make expose pop up by holding fn and F4 but I don't want that, I just want F4 to bring up expose instead of the dashboard while the rest of the function keys do what Apple designed them to.

IMac :: How To Use Boot Up Keyboard Shortcuts

Aug 22, 2010

How do I make this work with a wireless keyboard? Apparently, if it is possible, I don't know how. I had to use a wired keyboard to get it boot to CD and I wanted to enable 64-bit, but holding those buttons down on the included wireless bluetooth keyboard do not work. Is there a way to make it work or should I just use a wired keyboard?
