I am working on MacOS Sierra and wanted change desktop workspaces quickly. For this, I used the keyboard shortcut under Mission Control and selected all the tick boxes for Switch to Desktop N.

The shortcut key for this was ^1.

Another shortcut is ctrl+ ->/<-. But, I wanted to change it to alt+->/<- so that it can be done single-handedly. How should I do this?

EDIT: I want to use only the right alt and not left alt for the above purpose.

As you said, you can go to the Preferences System, then Keyboard, then to the Shortcuts tab.

From here,

  1. You select the line you want to change the shortcut of
  2. You click on the icon showing the current shortcut
  3. You execute the new shortcut to record it

PS: I'm not sure if this is what you intended to do.

  • Yes, I wanted to do that but what if I want to use only the right alt and not left alt for the above purpose. – Jos Jan 2 at 12:14
  • @AjaySinghNegi If you want the right alt key to change Desktop, but not the left alt key, I don't get why, but anyway, you can do it with the following: Reset the default keys with the ctrl key in the keyboard preferences. Then remap the right alt key to the left ctrl key with Karabiner-Elements for Mac. – Yoric Jan 2 at 13:25
