This will disconnect your keyboard, and will allow the software keyboard to return to the screen. When you are near your keyboard again, ...

Sorry but what you want is not possible. You could try adding the XCode keybindings that do this "^\UF702" = "moveSubWordBackward:"; /* Ctl-Left Arrow */ "^$\UF702" = "moveSubWordBackwardAndModifySelection:"; /* Ctl-Shift-Left Arrow */ "^\UF703" = "moveSubWordForward:"; /* Ctl-Right Arrow */ "^$\UF703" = ...

Take a look at Karabiner. It isn't very user friendly for this level of customization but it has amazing power and flexibility. The PrintScreen, Scroll Lock, and PauseBreak buttons are actually F13, F14, and F15. You would have to configure the custom private.xml with something like this. In this example, it will remap F14 (the Scroll Lock key) to ...

A great solution (which I use) is USBOverdrive (http://www.usboverdrive.com/USBOverdrive/News.html) You simply install it, mash all the special functions on your keyboard and it should automatically assign the key the right function but you can change it manually. Hope this helps!

You need to set your device language to English (U.K.), not just the keyboard. To do this: Open Settings Tap "General" Tap "Language & Region" Tap "iPhone Language" Select "English (U.K.)" Your iPhone should reboot and your dictionary should be set to British English. If it doesn't, you may need to reset your dictionary by: Open Settings Tap ...

In Settings → General → Language & Region → Preferred Language Order, you have to select English (U.K.) and remove others. In Settings → General → Keyboard → Keyboards you can select the keyboards languages you want. There is a keyboard called English (UK).

The best way I found is to go into the power plan settings and go into advanced settings then under display disable adaptive brightness.

I don't know what your set shortcut is, let's say it's control + space. Simply hold down control, press space but don't release control. The overlay will be shown. Also, there's no need for three input sources. I have two input sources and it works.

In my case the problem was that a miscellaneous bluetooth touchpad was disabling my laptop's keyboard. I fixed the problem but cutting off my bluetooth using keyboard shortcuts. An alternative solution would be to find the offending bluetooth device(s) and use them to disable bluetooth, etc.

Sticky Keys will do that. System Prefs > Accessibility > Keyboard It removes the need to hold a modifier key before pressing the associated key to be modified. You can set options to make it switchable, beep when used, or display the modifier on-screen

I have never seen slowness on the Wireless of any sort, latency is not an issue. Period. On the other hand, key feel is an issue. The key mechanisms are different between Wired and Wireless; its harder to press the keys on the Wireless and it has a mushy feel. I tried one because I never used the numeric keypad (and I am a programmer) and was fine with the ...

You can try Colemak. It is less different from QWERTY and AZERTY then Dvorak so you will have the most used keyboard shortcuts ⌘+X, ⌘+C, ⌘+V in same place and ⌘+Q, ⌘+W, ⌘+A, ⌘+Z on the left side identical to QWERTY (though not AZERTY). [, ], {, } and | are at the same places as in QWERTY. Also check typing effort comparison of QWERTY, Dvorak and Colemak.

I tried all the other answers (enabling the internal speakers, killing coreaudiod, putting the computer to sleep), but the only thing that worked for me was a reboot. I also read somewhere that rebooting into safe mode might fix it, but thankfully I didn't need to do that.

Step 1 - get karabiner (if it's not already on your mac, which it might be). Step 2 - open Karabiner Step 3 - go to "change backslash key" Step 4 - click "change backslash to forward delete / + (Fn+backslash to backslash" Step 5 - close window. This makes the backslash key the delete key. I never use backslash, so it works great for me. Hope this helps. ...

Actually, you don`t have to run any app with spotlight or anything, the best way in my opinion is to: Create new Service in Automator Drag: "Run Apple script In the "Service recieves selected": choose no input paste this code from answer above: tell application "System Preferences" reveal anchor "keyboardTab" of pane "com.apple.preference.keyboard" end ...

⌘` (command + backtick) definitely works, on both the old (’09) Pages and the new. ⌘< and ⌘> (remembering to hold down shift to get < and > on my keyboard) zooms in/out on both versions. If ⌘<,⌘> used to switch windows for you, you must have redefined them, either in System Preferences→Keyboard→Shortcuts or in some third-party macro utility ...

There seem to be two proprietary programs that do solve this problem, but there isn't a way to set it up yourself using a keyboard shortcut. The two apps are Witch (as suggested by Buscar웃) and Contexts, in case someone wanted to check them both out. Witch costs $14, and Contexts costs $9. I'm trying both to see which one fits my needs most as both offer a ...

It looks like Pages overwrites the command + < shortcut to zoom out the view even though that's the default shortcut for moving focus between windows on a German keyboard. You can go in to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortucts to redefine that shortcut in Pages. Click App Shortcuts, click the + button, select Pages from the Application list, ...

My favorite solution is using Better Touch Tool, a free app. For this to work you need to have Full Keyboard Access turned on (in system preferences - keyboard preferences - shortcuts), so that ctrl-f2 will access the menu bar. Then use BTT to configure your short-cut (I use ctrl-alt-cmd-O) to do ctrl-f2, then attach addtional actions (10 times: two right ...

I fixed the issue! Turns out that on this keyboard, doing fn + f12 actually disables the windows key. This was turned on by default. This is why nothing was working when I would press the windows key. I pressed fn + f12 again and now everything works :| weeks of frustration all due to me not looking at my keyboard layout :(

Following up on @lauhub's answer, you enable the system's Keyboard Viewer in the Keyboard system preferences. In the "Input Sources" tab, check "Show input menu in menu bar." (In older versions of OSX, this is International system preferences' "Input Menu" tab.) The newly-enabled menubar menu includes "Show Keyboard Viewer."

LaunchPad was designed as a primarily non-keyboard UI for opening apps. A drastically easier way to launch an app via the keyboard is to use Spotlight under Yosemite. A simple Command-Space, then the first few letters of the app name, then press return.

You may get some luck if you download and install CheatSheet - it builds a list of shortcuts for the current application, so you may be able to track it down by working through your apps with that.

There's out there's a setting in Keyboard Settings. Change "¥" key generates to \ (Backslash) No idea why Yosemite changed that setting from whatever it used to be or if it didn't exist before why they felt the need to change the behavior.

I've settled on an ultimate method of final last resort when mousing is simply not an option. Karabiner (recently renamed from KeyRemap4MacBook) offers a "Mouse Keys Mode" which allows vim-style hjkl control of the mouse pointer and uio for left-middle-right click. There are a few options for the hotkeys that will activate this mode. My current preference is ...
