I use an app called Which space that puts the space number in the menu bar and you change spaces by typing control-# where # is the number of the space you want to change to. I find it much easier to type control-4 to move to space 4 than other ways.
On my iMac, running macOS High Sierra, it does nothing. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts tab. This will list all the system defined and custom keyboard shortcuts. If there is something that you want Shift-Command-Space to do, you can define it here.
I just set Shift-Command-Space to Show Launchpad, and it works fine. So it appears that the ...
Go to System Preferences app → Keyboard → Shortcuts and you can assign keyboard shortcuts to move across Spaces (desktops).
You can also use the F3 (Mission Control) key on your Mac's keyboard to get a birds eye view of all the Spaces (desktops in Mac parlance) and quickly and directly switch to the desired one. However, this will also involve using the ...
You should select shortcut you want to change and press ENTER (not double click, double click do nothing) to be able to change this selected shortcut.
Work this way on Mac OS Mojave 10.14.5, don't know if its relevant for older or future version of Mac OS.
There are native shortcuts which let you go to specific Desktop by Control + 1 etc.
But according to your needs to remove your conflicts with Copy/Paste shortcut, edit the keys by going to System Preferences → Keyboard → Shortcuts. Then you can add/edit Shortcuts to use CMD + C etc for going to specific applications.
Unfortunately the defaults write method does not seem to be reliable anymore.
The most reliable way I've found to do this is with AppleScript.
The downside is that it can take 15-30 seconds to run, during which time you should not do anything else with your keyboard or mouse.
The good news is that you should be able to save the AppleScript below as an app ...
Yes, there are some terminal commands to set your default setting to "none".
Disable top left hot corner:
defaults write com.apple.dock wvous-tl-corner -int 0
Disable top right hot corner:
defaults write com.apple.dock wvous-tr-corner -int 0
Disable bottom left hot corner:
defaults write com.apple.dock wvous-bl-corner -int 0
Disable bottom right hot ...
Not sure if this is what you wanted, but here's a possible solution without using any third party apps:
Go to System Preferences > Keyboard
Click on Modifier Keys... (Refer to screenshot)
Map Option to Command, and Command to Option (or use the modifier keys in any way you want)
Now you can use Command key shortcuts using the Option key.
You can change it to Cmd+R. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts (tab) > App Shortcuts (left sidebar) click the plus and in the window: Application: Finder, Menu title: Show Original Just the menu item written exactly as it is in the menu, Shortcut: Cmd+R.
When you change the shortcut, it'll show up in the menu item.
It can be done via AppleScript.
I might be able to fudge some kind of script for you in a day or so, but take a look at:
(mostly for how to make the script non-specific to an an application) and https://macosxautomation.com/applescript/firsttutorial/04.html
(for relative window indexes).
I know this an apple SE, but some of us use Mac and Windows. In my case, using a Windows laptop in a docking station, pressing the Insert key from the external keyboard didn't solve the problem, but pressing the Insert key on the laptop's built-in keyboard solved it.
TL/DR: If you use an external keyboard, try clicking Insert key on the built-in keyboard.
This article from Mac World (for macOS 10.12.5, not Mac OS X 10.5.8) suggests that the key could have been set up to speak the selected text.
This would consistent with the "Funk" error noise each time I pressed the c key, because there was no text selected for it to read out! I tested this by selecting some text and, lo and behold, it read the text out.
Just tried what Timmy Browne implicitely suggested, and I can confirm that on macOS Mojave, apparently you can switch between windows of the same application with Cmd+~ (while switching between applications with the old good Cmd+Tab combination).
Here is how I used the control + command + c keys in Keyboard Maestro. It's a paid app with a free trial period. Frankly, I didn't have much luck defining apple's keyboard short cuts. It was all confusing to me.
Start up Keyboard Maestro
Keyboard Maestro does come with an assist to help you create your first action. ...
There is a nice clean open source app for this called Thor. It enabled you to assign global shortcuts to applications.
Download the binary from the App Store here https://itunes.apple.com/app/thor/id1120999687?ls=1&mt=12. The project page is here https://github.com/gbammc/Thor.
As @Tetsujin pointed out,
The beep doesn't mean 'oops, I've got a key conflict' it means 'the key command you just used has nothing assigned to it in this scope'.
After a restart, the (above) shortcuts worked in every app I tried.
So after tuning your keyboard shortcuts, try to close and reopen the app in which it does not get triggered (beeps) or ...
The behaviour is somewhat awkward.
Even the Menu option doesn't toggle it on/off, only on.
If you simply double-click your emoji without doing anything else, it doesn't even bring the window to the front...
..so, the only real option is after you open it, click its header bar [while you're over there anyway to grab your emoji]
It will then respond to ...
