In Finder under the File menu, the "New Tab" command has ⌘T as a keyboard shortcut. However, when I use those combination of keys, a new tab does not open. I am currently running Yosemite, but this was also the case when I was running Mavericks. Is there a fix or workaround for this?


I noticed mine didn't either under Mavericks 10.9.5.

Open System Preferences -> Keyboard - Shortcuts tab, Select App shortcuts

Click the + button and under Application: select Finder.app, under Menu Title enter New Tab and under Keyboard Shortcut enter ⌘T.

After that in an open Finder window ⌘T opens a new tab.
