After posting about Google Drive shortcut cheat sheet, we got an email from one of our readers asking about Mac shortcuts. There is actually an official shortcut sheet provided by Apple in its Support centre. The sheet features all of the shortcuts you will need to smartly handle your Mac. These shortcuts are divided into 4 main categories:
  • Cut, copy, paste, and other common shortcuts
  • Sleep, log out, and shut down shortcuts
  • Document shortcuts
  • Finder shortcuts
Check out the unabridged Mac shortcuts sheet from this page.

You can also create your own customized shortcuts on OS X Yosemite and assign them to menu commands in any app or in the Finder. Here is how to do it:

1- Choose Apple menu and System Preferences, then click Keyboard.

2-Click Shortcuts, select App Shortcuts, then click Add (+).

3- Click the Application pop-up menu, then choose an app.

4- Type the menu command for which you want to set a keyboard shortcut in the Menu Title field.

5- Click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, press the key combination that you want to assign to the menu command, then click Add (+).

6- Quit and restart any apps you’re using for the new keyboard shortcut to take effect.
