Just press ctrl+↩ return or ⇧+↩ return to launch the app. Both works for me.

I recommend Keyboard Maestro which lets you set up macros with various actions that can be triggered with keyboard shortcuts or other triggers.

I use Karabiner. It is a bit of a pain to customize (it uses XML), but it is just as powerful as AHK. It can also move the mouse.

Did you consider using Keyboard Maestro? Here is an example of how I deal with moving windows through screens. I just tried to move full screens apps -never tried before- and seems that didn't work well. But you could modify my macros to Exit full screen before moving to the next screen and Enter full screen after that. The macro for that is called Type a ...

So everything was working fine, you opened iPhoto, and wham! ... a non-booting Mac? Something else has gone wrong here, and I doubt it's iPhoto. After installing Yosemite, did you do other things with it successfully, like browse the web, open a Word document? From the screen you describe, the HD is the problem. Either it is completely dead, system files ...

I find this problem happens for me inconsistently, so I use this fairly destructive approach when it happens: Open up "Activity Monitor", which can be found easily using Spotlight Select either "CPU" or "Memory" from the pills at the top of the dialog In the search box, top right, type: itunes "ituneshelper" is what you're looking for. Find it, click on ...

Basically, your way of viewing the folders in the OS means that in the over-arching parent folder that you opened the finder window in will be the folder that it detects you to be in causing your CMD+V to paste into this folder. Even if you've expanded sub-folders the OS has made it so that in this viewing format you haven't actually entered the folder so ...

So I just tried it. I have to move the focus from the Finders sidebar by double clicking on the Test folder and that will open a new tab, new finder window. Then highlight the test-1 and use cmd-v Means, as long you have a Folder highlighted in the Finders sidebar it will copy it there.

Try Karabiner; It's great, but kinda heavy, very customizable

Did you consider using Keyboard Maestro? Here you can see how I deal with something this. I use it to move cursor and windows between screens, but is really easy to modify per your requests.

Tab is supposed to work (and does), but Yosemite seems to have a bug in regard to highlighting which button is selected. The entire button being blue means the button is the default, but there should also be a visual indicator of which button is selected. You can test that Tab does in fact work. Press Cmd+S to save the page you are looking at right now. ...

I've run into a similar problem after installing Yosemite(not beta but full release) and my corded keyboard is not recognized after boot up. Unplugging and replugging the keyboard forces the Mac to recognize the keyboard (so it is just a nuisance at this point) but I've noticed that a USB external drive keeps ejecting it's self. Perhaps there is a USB bug in ...

You may want to try Ukelele (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/14495/ukelele). It allows you to modify keyboard layouts and save them. I just tried and it works on Yosemite. Good luck!

Resetting PRAM didn't work for me either. Chris Kline's solution is great, but I don't think the AppleScript is compatible with Mavericks or Yosemite. This AppleScript works in Yosemite: tell application "System Events" click menu bar item 1 of menu bar 2 of application process "SystemUIServer" end tell BetterTouchTool, as Chris mentioned, or Alfred ...

This used to work in every application for me until I installed Yosemite. Now, It only works for certain applications. The way around this is to use the 'command + (first letter of the button text)' For example, if you want to choose "Don't Save" then 'command+d'.

there is an option on the keyboard to either use the traditional F1, F2, etc keys, or the special features. Maybe you have selected the traditional mode.

While reading your question, I happened to stumble upon the (imho) easiest option: Simply uncheck the "Romaji" checkbox under Input modes in your Japanese/Kotoeri pane in the System Preferences. Then you can choose an easy keyboard shortcut for switching exclusively between U.S.Extended (with the āēīōū capability) and the Hiragana Japanese mode. Since I ...

I also upgraded to Yosemite (from Mavericks) on a MacBook Pro with a US Qwerty keyboard. But I do not see any difference in behavior with the keyboard, i.e. all the combinations you indicate (option+e to get "é", ...) still work fine for me. I did not make any change during the upgrade. My keyboard is set to plain "US" (not "US Extended" or "US ...

I will presume that you're using emacs in the console on FreeBSD inside VMWare on Windows 7 running on a MacBook. Try using a system-provided keymap designed for emacs. kbdcontrol -l /usr/share/syscons/keymaps/us.emacs.kbd If that doesn't work (or if that file doesn't exist), you can try making a custom keymap. See the emacs wiki page about the meta key ...

As far as I know, Yosemite Romaji IM's failure to honor option and shift dead keys is a bug that Apple will have to fix via an OS update. It has been reported elsewhere (e.g. https://discussions.apple.com/message/26864874#26864874 ). It would be good to use Apple's feedback channel to encourage quick action on this. The behavior described for the US ...

Interestingly, the ⌘ Cmd-` shortcut doesn't work for me (Chrome 38.0 on Mac OS X 10.9.50). But ⌘ Cmd-F1 seems to work instead (and works for other apps too). Though, again, it doesn't work if the windows are spread across desktops/spaces.

When the autocorrect suggestion is showing, you need to press the DOWN key, then you can use left and right to select if there is multiple. After that hit return. No mouse/trackpad interaction required. :)

Try the right option key + click This works for me using parallels with win 8.1, I haven't personally come across web apps that use this, so I can't test this. Right click actually emulates control + click due to the history of apple sticking with a single button mouse for so long, thus the context menu used the control click method, plus MACs don't have a ...

Pressandhold.app should be in exactly the same place in Yosemite that it was in Mavericks. I just checked on both my Macs that I upgraded to Yosemite. /System/Library/Input Methods/PressAndHold.app exists exactly where it should. And to try to confirm whether this is a holdover from Mavericks (since both my Macs were upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite) I ...

It turns out the problem came from the external keyboard, a Logitech K750. I had to use the Logitech Control Center to get the correct behavior. Why this wasn't a problem in Mavericks, I'm not sure.

The nearest thing available is the "Three finger drag" option in System prefs -- under trackpad you'll find the option to use it: This lets you drag by hold three fingers on the trackpad and dragging..

defaults write com.apple.loginwindow PowerButtonSleepsSystem -bool no Is working for me on 10.9.5, and gives behavior very close to how the power button used to work for me on 10.6. Though there is a bit more of a delay, it's definitely not infuriating anymore. ...

I seem to have fixed this now. I went into Bluetooth prefs and removed the mouse and Keyboard. I removed to batteries from both. Rebooted. Went to System Preferences → Mouse Put batteries back into mouse, re-paired mouse only Rebooted. Went to System Preferences → Keyboard → Connect Bluetooth Keyboard. Re-paired keyboard.

You have some app on the App Store who provide you a lot of way to lock your Mac. Like this one : https://itunes.apple.com/fr/app/lock-me-now/id464265594?l=en&mt=12 Or this : http://www.knocktounlock.com [Lock and unlock your Mac with your iPhone bluetooth]

I had the same issue. So I changed the batteries on the keyboard, turned the keyboard ON and then restarted the computer. It connected then. I found that if the computer is dotted up and not the keyboard it won't connect. Hope this works.

This helped me find the solution for OS X 10.6/Snow Leopard, which is a little different. The Input Sources tab is under System Preferences->Language & Text, instead of Keyboard. I had Unicode Hex Input installed and enabled; unchecking it fixed the Option-Arrow problem, and re-checking it again doesn't seem to bring the problem back! Very strange. I'll ...

Finally, with OS X 10.10 Yosemite, this works as expected!

This is not the perfect solution as its a paid one, but this software called Which fills this gap. As this is truly a bothersome problem (I often use five or six RDP connections at one time in full screen) I thought I would mention it. disclaimer : I am not affiliated to this program.

I had an insight about 2 sentences into typing this question. BetterTouchTool has global keyboard shortcut functionality (in fact I already use BTT for app-specific keyboard shortcuts), which turns out works perfectly for this by binding the F11 and F12 keys. Even more awesome, I can also use it to set app-specific shortcuts, and this lets me override so I ...

US Standard. For one, Apple only offer the option of US Standard in some territories now. US International exists for its close resemblance to UK version. Secondly, US Standard is the pervalant QWERTY across countries regardless of the manufacturer. Plus, symmetry. I guess if you need to re-learn where all the symbol keys are anyways, why not use the ...


1

The US one is fine. There won't be any problems with the return key after a couple of days of use. Your main worry is probably locations of symbols: @, ?, / etc.

This is an intentional change of the preferences. You can turn the audio feedback back on in System Preferences -> Sound and checking Play feedback when volume is changed

Yes. Use the app Karabiner (https://pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/). It can remap fn + number to fn + numpad number. With Shift+fn+1 you have Shift+Num 1. It works.

Most people use QWERTY, just because it is the most popular, but if you’re learning a new layout anyway you might want to try Dvorak. If you don’t want to learn another alphabetic layout, you can use a tool like Ukelele to make a better programming layout for the special characters while still keeping AZERTY for the rest of the keys.

Karabiner Karabiner comes with everything you need—a way to define a shortcut, and a way to move the mouse. The warp-mouse-cursor-position utility lives in /Applications/Karabiner.app/Contents/Library/utilities/bin/. It has a default setting to warp the mouse to the center of the current window by tapping fn or holding ' or /, but for a customized version, ...

Microsoft Word makes a difference between Return en Enter. By using the Return key a new paragraph is made. By using the Shift-Return key you'll get, what is called in an old fashioned way, a Carriage Return en Line Feed. The difference can only been seen by going "under water", which is using the special P character in the top bar. The use of this ...

My problem was that my new custom keyboard layout would work in many apps - Spotlight, Sublime Text, the Terminal etc. - but not in many built-in apps such as TextEdit or Mail. The final point in the original question finally solved this issue for me: sudo rm /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.IntlDataCache* sudo find /var/ -name "*IntlDataCache*" -exec rm {} ...

You need to enable Full Keyboard Access in keyboard preferences (Preferences.app). Then You'll be able to switch highlighted buttons by pressing TAB and press this button with Space bar.

If you have both a laptop and external mac keyboard, turning on the caps lock on both of them might work. That's because you'll trick the mac keyboard into thinking its turning the caps lock off, which has no delay. This is probably only useful if your caps lock key is something that's not caps lock, so you are always pretending to "turn off" the caps lock, ...

There's a very simple way to see if this is a software or hardware problem. Power on your machine and hold down Command-V. This is the shortcut for verbose boot. If the keyboard works at boot, but not at a login window, its software. If you cannot perform startup commands properly, it is a hardware issue, as no software is loaded this early in the ...

I've found three conceptual hurdles that one needs to understand for any of this to make sense.

Your VM is ...

Taking a look at Chrome's keyboard shortcuts helps. Cmnd+Shift+I is to "Email the current page". It's a bit annoying because it's so close to the developer tools (Cmnd+Opt+I).
