MacOS Keyboard Shortcut CustomizationsWritten on September 28, 2014 | Configuration
Custom keyboard shortcuts that I find useful.
Open System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts.
To maximize the currently focused window, add the following.
- Menu Title: Zoom
- Keyboard Shortcut: Control + Option + ⌘ + M
It’s also useful to be able to tab through the buttons in dialogs (e.g., an OK/Cancel modal dialog). I’m not sure why this is disabled by default in MacOS, but it can be enabled by navigating to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts and selecting ‘All Controls’ for the Full Keyboard Access input at the bottom.
F11, F12, Ctrl + ←, Ctrl + →
Open System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Mission Control. Uncheck the following so that these keys can be used in applications:
- Show Desktop (F11)
- Show Dashboard (F12)
- Move left a space (Ctrl + ←)
- Move right a space (Ctrl + →)
