Work uses Macs exclusively, so it was time for me to brush up on some macOS skills. It gets a bit confusing when your jumping in between macOS, Windows, and Linux DE’s…
Get to know the funky symbols
command key is the primary modifier for shortcuts. (e.g. Cut, Copy, Paste)
command + x
command + c
command + v
Command + Spacebar
To jump between words, use
option + arrow key
fn + left/right arrow
The delete key does a backspace.
To do a “regular” delete, hit
fn + delete
This is weird and inconsistent on macOS, which only “zooms” windows, not maximising both height and width.
shift + double click title bar. This at least works with iTerm, but not Safari.
Double clicking an edge of the window, with the resize cursor, will expand the window to the respective edge on the screen.
control + command + f
Four finger swipe
control + arrow key
Snap window to left/right of screen
Hold the green title bar button
Cut in Finder
