BetterTouchTool. Create a custom shortcut with CMD+SHIFT+F under Golbal, and leave the Assigned Action to blank. BTT will override the built-in action.

As @tty suggested, using Karabiner is brilliant. I made some extra rules. You can navigate using HJKL and zoom using FDER. Read the file for more info. Here is my private.xml: <?xml version="1.0"?> <root> <appdef> <appname>PREVIEW</appname> <equal>com.apple.preview</equal> </appdef> ...

You could use this script then make a shortcut to it in Automator.

Move your mouse to the top right corner and you should see a dim plus sign and the new screen.

There are no Apple solutions for adding keyboards or fonts, only third party. Search the app store for Mongolian and try the Keyman app. Unfortunately you have to upgrade to iOS 8 to have a keyboard that operates for the entire OS and not just via copy/paste. Nobody here can tell you why Apple hasn't included some feature you want, but you can ask for it ...

Old post, but this may help someone: If you are using the "Karabiner app" (https://pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/) which is a third party app commonly used to remap keys (or make OS X keyboard mimic some of Windows keyboards behaviors) it will bypass your OS X configurations. If you are using it, to increase your keyboard rate you should go to the app and on the ...

Simply save these lines (first one makes your screen darker, second one brighter) in one Applescript .scpt file each: tell application "System Events" to key code 107 tell application "System Events" to key code 113 and execute them with /usr/bin/osascript /path/to/the/script

The 'System keys' don't seem to have a Key Code equivalent, they are actioned below the OS-level. Try Key Codes (freeware)

I finally figured out how to do this by code: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/30336086/make-shift3-produce-not-%C2%A3-on-osx-by-code If you have developer tools, you can compile & run that from the commandline.

The Keyboard Name is not set correctly. It duplicates one already in use by the system. Instead you should make it koray1.

You could make your custom keyboard shortcuts. Adding a Custom Keyboard Shortcut Command Set Personalize your Xcode experience by adding your own set of keyboard shortcuts. Xcode provides a default set of shortcuts for most menu commands and common text editing commands. Many of these default shortcuts are based on the commonly used Emacs key bindings. In ...

I had enabled speech command in system preferences and soon after that the esc key stopped working.

Are you plugging the keyboard into the USB 3.0 port? The signaling rate of USB 3.0 can cause RF emissions that can interfere with Bluetooth, WiFi, and other devices. Intel has a detailed paper on USB 3.0* Radio Frequency Interference on 2.4 GHz Devices My suspicion is that the extension cable has better shielding than the keyboard's cable and moving the ...

You can try ⇞ page up and ⇟ page down, which usual pages one whole page back and forth. I don't think there is a system wide shortcut to scroll by line.

This works in Yosemite (10.10.3), not sure about earlier versions: First make sure that you have a highlight colour set in System Preferences > General: In System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts, review the setting that lets you toggle how Tab moves focus. This lets you change the setting in #3 below by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+F7. I leave mine ...

Most likely a change was made to the Fn key setting. The behavior you are seeing is "Show Desktop", but generally requires pressing Fn-F11 to activate. (Note on my keyboard Volume Down is F11. It may differ on yours, but the steps below don't chnage.) To change this behavior: Open System Preferences. In the second section, click on Keyboard, then on the ...

BetterTouchTool lets you set up custom keyboard shortcuts to snap windows to the left/right/top/bottom (among other things). You can also create custom gestures, and per-app gestures/shortcuts.

there is a very simple solution : just reboot

First of all let me tell you that there is definitely a way of removing the caps lock delay. I myself prefer to use caps lock over shift just from a comfort perspective, with caps lock being closer to my pinky finger than shift the majority of the time. The solution is quite elusive, and you wouldn't really know you removed it unless you were specifically ...

Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts and there will be various shortuc setups for almost anything.

You can chose other services from the Menu on the left. And here is a ...

To change the modifier keys, go to System Preferences → Keyboard → Keyboard and choose Modifier Keys…. To map the keys to the correct places, go to System Preferences → Keyboard → Input Sources, click the + and choose British PC.

ALMOST SOLVED I got this solution to work in some Applications (like Finder, TextEdit, Firefox, ...) but not others (like Outlook, Chrome, ... ) A 'context click' can be mapped to a key/key-combo using all native Mac OS X features (thanks to its NeXT/OPENSTEP heritage). However, the solution is pretty technical "under the cover" stuff, and it may take ...

So I figured it out. It was the Logitech Control Center for Marble Trackball. It doesn't leave anything in the system log.

On my laptop I press the Spotlight keyboard shortcut, type the first 3 letters of my app and press enter. It takes 1 second and voilà.

For the fan, you need to differentiate between a fan problem or temperature problem. You need to see if the laptop is over heating when running the fan at full speed. Use something like TG Pro. For trackpad and keyboard, you need to be able to see input live, so that you can tell if the trackpad/keyboard is in fact dead or working randomly. BetterTouchTool ...

You can set the Language spelling to look for spelling in multiple languages. My example is English and Spanish. In the Keyboard System preferences go to the Text tab.

It's still there, but it only shows when ⌥ is held for a slightly longer time. A quick ⌥ + ⇥ will not trigger this window.

Yes, it's possible to replace individual keys without replacing the keyboard. I recently replaces right SHIFT, right OPTION and several f1 - f12 keys on my 2011 13' MBP. SHIFT key was chipped on the bottom edge, which made it unaesthetic. OPTION fell off. I customized my fn keys with Karabiner, so the symbols on them no longer apply. Mechanically, the ...

Many moons later, I wanted the same thing and I found a solution. I use BetterTouchTool to manage all of my keyboard/mouse/trackpad shortcuts and configurations. So I created a keyboard shortcut that runs a terminal command when pressed. To launch the screen saver from the terminal, use this command: open -a ...

Reading your logs shows: You are connecting to a server named FUTCHERIMAGER to get your Internet which seems to have some problems with your connection. Your Bluetooth and your WiFi should be turned off if you do not use them. It looks like you are using the Airplay, so you might need to turn them on back again.

Alternative Solution I tried to follow setting my own shortcut like Machal has suggested. However it didn't work for me and just doubled the keybinding for minimize. I did find, that setting something else to CMD+M worked perfectly:

If I understand you correctly, try OptionTab then down-arrow to the result you want and press return. There will be a tiny arrow to left of the selected link.

I found Automator's "Launch Application" action to be as quick as anything else, and the only way to do this without third party software. BetterTouchTool is a free application that can be used to launch applications using hotkeys. iTerm 2 is a Terminal.app replacement that can be shown/hidden using a hotkey (if it's running).

Also worth mentioning BetterTouchTool (http://www.bettertouchtool.net/) I wanted to have both ⌘W & ⌘C both perform Copy (muscle memory, don't ask). The native method only allows you one key per command, with BTT I was able to have both keys mapped to same command, while also avoid the undesired Close WIndow behaviour

iOS 8 supports 3rd party keyboards. There are several that speak in icons and gifs and whatnot. Check the AppStore for something you like or even develop your own.

You were looking in the right direction… though you cannot actually do this easily for a right click item - so long as there is a menu item in the same app, it's simple. I've only quickly tested this on Safari & TextEdit - whichever app you use must already have those 2 command options somewhere in their menu structure. System Prefs > Keyboard > ...

The shortcuts are different for the OSs. You'll have to learn them, individually. Only third-party apps, and basic shortcuts like cut, copy, paste are similar. If you have a Win keyboard then the Win key is equal to Cmd (⌘) key, and rest are the same. Generally Win key is replaced with Cmd key in shortcuts. The task manager is called Activity Monitor in ...

On a Mac, the equivalent to Task Manager is the Activity Monitor. From the Dock, click the Launchpad icon, then search for and click Activity Monitor. Alternatively, assuming that the Windows key behaves like the [Cmd] key, you can use [Cmd+Space], then type Activity Monitor. However, for applications that need to be force closed, right-click that ...

I've bought a Macbook Pro with german keyboard a couple of weeks ago. It came with Yosemite installed, I was looking for the same shortcut, I found that Cmd + < does the trick.

Answer from Maciej fixed it for me (can't comment or vote because I'm too new). 'Show Desktop' in Mission Control was set to F11, but left command still showed desktop. Set show desktop to left command, tested, then back to F11, and tested again. All fixed, left command is back to normal.

I had a shortcut in Mavericks (option+T) to bring up the Tags box in Finder. Yosemite killed it, whether All Applications or Finder. Apple Support could not solve it, however I discovered that it will work if set to control+T instead.

Identical problem. Chrome Version 42.0.2311.135 (64-bit) Also a MacPro. Could it be happening only in MacPro? Have to switch to Safari for now. I have no problem with Chrome (identical settings) on MacBook.

I'm having this same issue. I use Command+Tab very frequently, and I would say about 50% of the time lately, when I switch applications, the selector doesn't stop. It just flows all the way to the right. I am running the 10.10.4 beta preview which might have something to do with it. To the original poster, are you running a beta or a normal public release?

Have you thought for a keyboard combination like cmd+w? In Google Chrome you can close all tabs with cmd+shift+w, in Safari the same way. Alternatively you can write an AppleScript like tell application "Terminal" to close front window or as terminal command: osascript -e 'tell app "Terminal" to close front window'.
