You need to find the root cause why the Shift key gets stuck and fix it. Look carefully for small object sneaked inside crevice between key and keyboard. It happened to me because a small piece of pencile lead got in which was barely noticable. After reading through this thread made me search through a subtle stuck Shift key and finally got the issue ...

I use BetterTouchTool for this. Here you can create a keyboard shortcut which sends a shortcut of your choice. Simply as that!

Although the proposed solution works, there are better alternatives IMO. To remap mission_control to right_command for example, you can also: Add a rule to Karabiner-Elements such as: { "type": "basic", "from": { "key_code": "mission_control", "modifiers": { "optional": ...

When I'm using Messenger on Chrome, this triggers text replacement and becomes "2 like-you arei". This doesn't happen on StackExchange, but it does happen on Messenger. Text Replacements work on apps that utilize the Cocoa interface. This means any Apple application and any third party app like Chrome, will have text Replacements compatability. ...

Tab is used for moving between controls and arrow keys are used to move within the control group. For example if your focus is on tabs control in 'Keyboard' window ('Keyboard', 'Text'... 'Dictation') then you can move between them with left/right arrows. Or if if you are on 'Shortcuts' tab you use tab to move into left pane, move there with up-down arrows, ...

From Apple documentation (Change the behaviour of the modifier keys on Mac) On macOS 10.13 and later, you can also change the behaviour of the Function key on keyboards that have an Fn key – except keyboards with a Touch Bar.

On my Windows 10 and Ubuntu Linux with Spanish keyboard layout it is Alt Gr 4. On Windows you will have to press space to only get the ~. Or something else that cannot be combined with the ~ like for example ã. On my Linux I directly get the ~ character, but that behaviour is configurable. I know it's the apple section. But I found this answer with Google ...

For my money, PopChar remains the best character/glyph selector utility for finding, browsing, and pasting characters into text. It has been a Mac essential since the 90s at least. https://www.ergonis.com/products/popcharx/

Pressing Enter seems to break the emoji picker. You can, however, press Down Enter to insert the first emoji. (Ctrl+N Enter will do the same thing, and might be easier to type, although harder to memorize.) Just make sure not to press Enter before Down/Ctrl+N, or it'll refuse to respond to keyboard input (Esc will still dismiss it).

Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Input Sources and make sure the only item on the list is "German Standard" (and not "German"). The Apple "German" input source puts [ ] { } on alt 5689, while the German Standard input source should put them on alt 8970, and there are various other differences, such as @ being on alt L ...

The problem appears to be that you're using an On-The-Go adapter. USB OTG introduces the concept of a device performing both master and slave roles – whenever two USB devices are connected and one of them is a USB OTG device, they establish a communication link. The device controlling the link is called the master or host, while the other is called the ...

I have seen instances where USB ports stop working, but that's mostly been due to a static discharge on my part. In a situation like this, the first thing I would do is see if the keyboard works without issue in another computer, with and without the OTG cable. I would also see if you can use a different USB-A to USB-C adapter. Another thing to check on is ...

I continue to have this issue as well. I followed the instructions at the link shared by Guillermo, making Spanish (for me) the top language and English second, and it helped, but is not 100%.

The Apple Magic Keyboard does not have similar functionality. If you want to quickly switch between devices, the best way to do so is to (at least temporarily) connect the keyboard to the Mac you want to use it with via a lightning cable. Ideally, if you are swapping between them frequently, I would just leave a lightning cable connected to both, and plug it ...

After realizing the problem only happened in Chrome I disabled extensions and the accent option worked again. The extension responsible is Honorlock if someone else runs with the same problem. Thank you all

The cause is most often a second mouse, or mouse-like device (eg Wacom tablet, or 3DConnexion mouse, or trackpad, or playstation controller - with something on it. Every few months I forget to check - and it's always that. Unplugging the various devices normally sorts it out.

I had the same problem, turns out I somehow messed with my key bindings. To fix this, I removed the following entry from ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/UserData/KeyBindings/Default.idekeybindings, and then restarted Xcode: - <key> -</key> - <string>insertNewline:</string>

According to Apple: "[...] you cannot define keyboard shortcuts for general purpose tasks such as opening an app or switching between apps." https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/use-global-keyboard-shortcuts-mchlp2262/mac But maybe you can share your specific needs so we may find a solution.

Although the accepted answer should have worked, but in my case it didn't. I have the same Logitech USB Keyboard. What worked for me? I Installed Karabiner-Elements Then i swaped the keys. And within a second, everything was back to normal :) Hope it helps.

Sometimes it is not enough to simply ask yes-or-no about a complex feature like NKRO. Often the answer is, "It depends..." Several above commenters suggested holding down w, then e, then d, to see if the d key registers. On the built-in keyboard of my MacBookPro 2015, that "fails." But what succeeds is a more common 3-key sequence: shift +...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrow_keys Here is the URL I received the information from which I posted. I'm not a keyboard expert. Do you have a solution to the problem?

Once in a long while, this happens to me with my external on. I think the shortcut is working, but it's showing up off-screen somewhere. Unplugging the external monitor gets it working again.

To charge your active layout, you need to click on the "flag" menu at the top right of the screen, or use the keyboard shortcut, usually Control Space. (Selecting something in system preferences/keyboard/input sources does not do anything other than show you the appropriate graphic.) There is almost no difference between "US" and "...

In Safari you can use option+tab to move through clickable controls/links on a webpage. Use shift+option+tab move backward through the page. Then use the enter key to open the link. You can make it a bit easier by turning on "Press tab to highlight each item on a webpage" in Safari->Preferences->Advanced. That will remove the need to use the ...
