40 Keyboard Shortcuts to Optimize Your Mac Experience

These days I think it’s pretty safe to say Macbooks and iMacs are becoming more popular. With a new Macbook rumored at hitting stores for less than 1000 dollars, it seems like Apple are trying to make a model suitable for everyone’s budget.

Anyone who has bought a high-end laptop in the recent years has surely though about switching to a Mac, especially professional audio and visual users. However the unfamiliar environment of the Mac OS X and the talk of software compatibility issues still has many of us in fear of change.

After passing up the opportunity to buy a second hand Macbook Pro for a very inviting price, I started to wonder how long it would have taken me to get my head round the Mac.

A quick Google search led me to some really useful info on switching from Windows to Mac. There are several forums and blogs that can help guide you through the different Mac processes and applications. One article which I thought would apply to both professional and novice Mac users is “Keyboard Shortcuts.”

Bearing in mind “command” on the Mac has the same function as “control” in Windows, some of you PC users will notice that several of the shortcuts are exactly the same, if not very similar to those found in Windows – a sure sign it shouldn’t take too long to re-remember your way around the keyboard.
