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
+ button and under
Menu Title enter
New Tab and under
Keyboard Shortcut enter
After that in an open Finder window
⌘T opens a new tab.
