I would like to make Cmd+e do what Cmd+h does.

I can do this in keyboard config, but I have to do it for every single program, as the title in the menu is "hide safari" for safari, and fx. "hide photoshop" for Photoshop.

Therefore I seek a solution, so that Cmd+e and Cmd+h does the same thing in every single program.

  • Cmd-E already has functionality assigned, I assume you are not interested in that? – nohillside Sep 26 '15 at 9:06
  • i dont use cmd-E and i think it makes sense that: cmd+q is quit cmd+w is close window cmd+e is hide app three combinations that are easy accessible with left hand, i cant reach cmd+h with ease :-) – Kasper Fløjgaard Christensen Sep 26 '15 at 13:59

You can do this with BetterTouch Tool (free) or Keyboard Maestro (paid).

In BetterTouchTool:

  1. Choose the Keyboard tab
  2. Create a new global action with shortcut ⌘E and action ⌘H
