Mac ShortCut Keys supportMaybe you’re new to your Mac or maybe you just never learned some long-time shortcuts that are available. Whatever the case, these Mac shortcuts are great to have in your Mac support tool kit.

Let’s get to it.  Here are the 3 must-know and must-have Mac shortcuts:

  1. Command-Q – How many times have you had the beachball spin and spin and spin?  This command will quit the current app you’re in that is causing headaches by taking too long.
  2. Command-Option-Esc – Used to Control-Alt-Delete?  Well, this does the same for Macs and you can select which offending program to kill.
  3. Command-M – Too many windows?  Use this one to minimize the current window to get to the others.

So, basically, these commands will close out or get rid of windows you don’t want to look at any longer.  Call it the lack of patience commands.  Hey, time is important.  So, these shortcuts are time-savers that are good to know and work with.
