Learning OSX

January 19th, 2010 Comments off

I’ve finally managed to get around to updating my 2nd hand macbook to Snow Leopard and getting a replacement battery for it. Whilst I’m not convinced I’ll ever switch to it fully from Ubuntu as I want to start doing iPhone development I need to start learning my way around OSX.

One of the things that has always really annoyed me using OSX is not knowing the keyboard shortcuts to do things, in Ubuntu I can do pretty much everything without touching the mouse so having to continually move my hand away from the keyboard is frustrating.

Today I found a couple of useful articles that go through some shortcuts for OSX…

The short cut I’ve found most useful so far is Command-Spacebar which opens up spotlight’s search facility so I can quickly launch programs without browsing menus.

Next mission to work out the shortcut key for deleting files in Finder, dragging them to the waste bin is really starting to get annoying.
