I've managed to change shortcut of "Copy" to ^C for most applications by going to "keyboard->shortcut". But in Finder, the "copy" menu item is dynamic, like Copy "documents", I don't know how to change it.

I am aware of some 3rd party extensions that can do the job, I am just asking if there is any way to achieve this without installing any software.

  • what OS X is it ? I do not see the Copy "documents – Ruskes Oct 13 '18 at 16:14
  • Command key has been in use since system 1 so within graphical finder, its really stuck that way. You can still use Ctrl key in terminal tho.. – Chrips Oct 14 '18 at 12:02

Honestly, trying to individually replace any/all occurrences of the Cmd ⌘ key with Ctrl ⌃ is futile.

You can globally swap the keys in System Prefs > Keyboard > Modifier Keys... but I'm not even sure I'd recommend that.

Long term, I'd recommend, "Get used to it. Don't fight it."

  • Usually I might say this isn't a solution but really, the command key has been in use on Macintosh since system 1 so why fight it? You still use Ctrl key while using terminal as well – Chrips Oct 14 '18 at 12:00
