Taking the time to force yourself to learn keyboard shortcuts can save you a ton of time down the road. Previously I had published a post on using function delete to do a forward delete. Here are some other handy Mac keyboard shortcuts you may want to master.
The 4 petals ⌘ icon is the Command key. This one is the easiest since the icon is right on the key itself.
The control key symbol looks like an upside down v. Memory trick might be if you are trying to control someone you might poke them and the symbol could poke someone.
The symbol for the shift key is an up arrow. It is not unusual to utilize an arrow to represent a shift so this symbol seems to make sense.
Command Shift S
Command Right Arrow
Hold down the Command key (⌘) and press the right arrow to jump to the end of the line. The left arrow jumps to the beginning of the line.
Command Up Arrow
Holding down Command (⌘) and pressing the up arrow will jump you to the top of the page. Command and the down arrow brings you back to the bottom.
Option Right Arrow
Right next to the Command key is the option key . Instead of jumping to the end of the line, the option arrow will jump a word at a time. Option up arrow jumps up a paragraph instead of jumping up the whole page like the Command key.
Control ( ) T will transpose letters. If you are like me you frequently mistype “the” as “eth.” Get in the habit using control ( ) T to swap those letters around.
