Telling your mac what to do can be a lengthy process without keyboard shortcuts. Copying and pasting, printing the screen, or opening a Word document can take seconds by pressing 1-2 keys on your keyboard rather than navigating to programs to open. If you want to add an shortcut, or hot key, it’s easier than you think.
Here’s how to set up your own Mac hot key:
- Go to Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Keyboard and Mouse
- Go to Keyboard Shortcuts tab -> click “+” sign at bottom-left
- Select Finder from the application menu and type the name of the command you want to add
- Type the shortcut you want to use (i.e. A + F) and click Add
Now, you have no excuse for increasing your computer performance with this Mac hot key setup.
