Look at the screenshot. I want to select the non-blue button with a keyboard shortcut. What is it?

Tab key to navigate the focus between buttons, and press the space bar when a button is selected.enter image description here

The effect is as above image. When a blue box around a button, press the space bar, the button will be "pressed".

If you found that the focus cannot be set to the button, pen the Keyboard preference, and config it as following: enter image description here

  • That looks like Lion. I'm using SL. And the tab does not work either. – lamp_scaler Nov 9 '11 at 5:46
  • Ok I just saw your edit. Working now. – lamp_scaler Nov 9 '11 at 5:47
  • Is there a way to do this without full access? – Moshe Aug 1 '13 at 5:01

@kukoo is right — also, for many pop-up dialogs, pressing + <First letter in the button> works.

That means you could reach the "Use .csv" button by pressing + U.

  • This isn't working for me. (On Mavericks beta, so I guess I can't complain.) – Moshe Aug 1 '13 at 5:01
  • @Moshe Works for me on "real" Mavericks. – Jari Keinänen Nov 4 '13 at 16:19
