How do I save my email address as a function key so I don't have to type it 300 times a week!
How do I save my email address as a function key so I don't have to type it 300 times a week!
This evening I joined the camp... I bought a MBP and LOVE it! So impressed, have been on it all evening and still have 3 hours battery remaining However, there is one thing REALLY bugging me. I've searched for over an hour and not got the answer I need... I want to swap the command and function buttons around... I am a web developer, and continuously use keyboard shortcuts such as copy and paste on my numerous devices. I want to be able to press function + c for copy, function + v for paste, function + t for new tab in safari etc. Basically, I want the function key to perform as the command key does!
Now, i've got as far as using keyboard "modifier keys" in preferences to switch around command and control - which is just ONE button off function :-) However, it doesn't let me switch the function of.. function
I managed to somehow screw up my function key mappings, and can't figure out how to get things back to "default".
I use the following function keys daily:
F11: vol down
F12: vol up
I somehow hit a key combination that threw everything out of wack. All of my functions have now shifted all over the place (ie: expose is no longer F3, it's now F9). I went into system preferences, and was able to re-map expose...but that's it. I can't figure out how to map the audio functions (mute and volume) and brightness control back to their original mappings.
I tried clicking on "Restore Defaults" within the Keyboard Shortcuts window...but it didn't work. Also, I now have an ugly black box around the item I've selected on my desktop. For example, if I click on my hard drive on the desktop...it'll put a big black box around it. If I click (or move my arrow key) on the next item...the black box is then moved there...indicating it's selected. How do I get rid of this ugly box?
I constantly have to switch my function keys from their shortcut mode to their "standard function key" mode in system prefs for playing certain games.
I'd like an automator script to switch the checkbox in system preferences whenever it's run, but I'm new to macs.
My brother just got the new iMac but he wanted my wired keyboard with the num keys, so basically we switched. I gave him my extended wired keyboard and I took his wireless to use with my MBP 13in and LED CD. So here's the problem: All the function keys don't work properly. I went into System Preferences>Keyboard and I was able to reassign the brightness keys (F1 and F2), expose and dashboard (F3 and F4). The rest...is beyond me. If it helps, I got the 13 inch MBP the week it came out. I tired running new software updates but nothing seems to help. I also have Snow Leopard installed. edit: I also checked out Keyboard viewer and it keeps showing the extended keyboard layoutView 4 Replies View Related
I know the 'show desktop' shortcut is F11 (which means pressing two keys to show this fn+F11). Can I change this shortcut to F13? so i can just press one key to bring up the desktop?View 3 Replies View Related
Function key used to clear the desktop in Leopard. What does that now on Lion?

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.View 4 Replies View Related
I know how in keyboard preferences to mark the check box that says "Use function keys as standard function keys," but my question is, is there a way to use a hot key to make this swap instead of having to open up system preferences, navigate to the proper pane and tab, and click the box? I have a couple programs where I absolutely need function keys to be function keys, but for general purpose use, I need the function keys to be the spiffy stuff printed on them.
Ideally I'd love for the system to look at what app was in the foreground (that is, has control of the menu bar) and recognize this app as needing access to function-function keys and make the swap for me, but I don't think this is possible at the moment, and having a hot key to change it would be the next best thing.
I have a last gen macbook pro, how can I change a function key to play music from iTunes (like the new ones)? Preferable it would be f12 since I never use dashboard.View 2 Replies View Related

When setting up my MacBook Pro I somehow made the right shift key function as a hotkey for the show desktop function. Now I can't figure out how to return it to being a shift key.

I'm trying to setup mail on Lion Sever (7.3). The only way I can get it to accept incoming mail is to specify the whole FQDN of the server in the address. For example the domain name is example.com and I have a user set up called john. Sending mail to firstname.lastname@example.org works.
But sending mail to email@example.com (which is what I want) returns an error:
554 554 5.7.1 <firstname.lastname@example.org>: Relay access denied (state 13).
For internal DNS, I have:
example.com - primary zonemail.expample.com - alias server.example.comserver.example.com - 192.168.1.2 [URL] - alias server.example.com MX record [URL]
I see references here to problems in mail on 7.3 but not this specific problem.

I must be missing something very obvious, but I can't seem to set Address Book to add all new contact info as "Work" entries. I have to edit every new entry and change all the fields from "other" to "work." This appears to happen when I "grab" phone or email info from an email message.

Isn't there a way to simply click on an email address contained in an email and have it automatically added to my address book as a contact?
Gmail is my default email client. I'm trying to send an email blast to my groups in address book. When I right click on a group, and click "send to...", none of the email address show up in the TO field, only the name of the Group appears.Previously, I used mac mail and clicking "send to" group would result in all email addresses going right where they're supposed to go.I don't know how I changed the client to Gmail, but if I can't get it to work, I'd like to switch it back.

Through the years I've clicked this, over and over: "If you prefer not to receive commercial email from Apple, or if you've changed your email address, please click here." I'm trying to detect a pattern. I suspect that every time our family buys a new apple product we are hit with advertisements. I recently bought a new iPod Touch. I wonder if this is why the offer from apple to leave me alone fails, over and over.View 1 Replies View Related

I have found a Way around that is plug in my Mouse and right click properties and sometimes I get the email address. However this is annoying as happens alot. Yes pop up window is turned off so if pop up should work. Example of webpage below [URL]. I click on there contacts email address and it just flashes but never see address. How can I see the email address?View 5 Replies View Related
Have any of you run across this annoyance after upgrading to SL? I had about 30 accounts that I call on that were listed as Company that all of a sudden showed up in my address book as either NoName or NoEmail. I found the solution to fixing this was to go to each address listed and tic the little box next to the word Company under First Last name. Luckily, I only had about 30 of these to manually fix, I feel sorry for those who have 100's of names to fix. You probably wonder why I did not have the Company box checked, well in all honesty, it did not matter whether you did or not under OS X Leopard, now for some reason some programmer thought it necessary to make it necessary to check the company box.View 1 Replies View Related
I have been getting other peoples mail for a little over 3 weeks now. Here is the deal:
My Email Address: email@example.com
I Receive A Message To: firstname.lastname@example.org
There are over 50 senders and it seems that it is a computer that is making these messages. There are huge misspellings and what's worse is that these emails are all sexually orientated. There are no pictures! But I didn't sign up for anything and I just started getting these emails all of a sudden. Each email sender is different (different address) and I have made over 30 rules in Mail Preferences to simply delete any mail from the sender(s) But I get a couple new senders every day. I' am going to have over 100 rules if this continues!

I want to take a list of email addresses from my address book on the mac and use them for another application. When I try, the mac automatically puts the person's first and last name in the address field, in addition to their email address.

I just hooked up my gmail account to Apple Mail. And I was wondering how I can change the persons email address to show like in gmail's website. Right now some emails are showing up email@example.com<firstname.lastname@example.org> or just email@example.com

iTunes has one of my old email addresses in my profile. How do I update that to be my current e-mail address?
Fo example my email and apple id are [url].. but my profile has email [url]... in it - an old email I no longer have access to.
Also - i've used 3 different email addresses since I bought my first iPhone. Everytime I update apps on it asks me for a password for one of those 3 email addresses (Apple IDs) - a different one everytime - and it's been so long since I closed those old ones i'm having a hard time remembering the passwords - I guess - because half the time it fails. It would be nice if there was some way to say everything on this phone belongs to the current apple ID.
