1. Command + C and Command + V

Copy and paste are two actions we use all the time. Instead of reaching for your mouse, simply press Command + C to copy the selected text or file, and Command + V to paste it wherever you want. It’s a real time-saver!

2. Command + Space

Searching for a file or launching an application? Press Command + Space to open Spotlight, the built-in search feature on your Mac. Just start typing the name of the file or app, and Spotlight will find it for you in no time.

3. Command + Tab

If you have multiple applications open and want to switch between them quickly, use Command + Tab. Hold down the Command key and press Tab to cycle through the open applications. Release the keys to select the desired app.

4. Command + Shift + 3 and Command + Shift + 4

Need to take a screenshot? Press Command + Shift + 3 to capture the entire screen, or Command + Shift + 4 to select a specific area. Your screenshots will be saved as image files on your desktop.

5. Command + Option + Esc

If an application becomes unresponsive and you need to force quit it, press Command + Option + Esc. This will bring up the Force Quit Applications window, where you can select the problematic app and close it.

These are just a few examples of the many keyboard shortcuts available on your Apple Mac. By incorporating these shortcuts into your workflow, you’ll be able to navigate your computer with ease and speed. Remember, practice makes perfect!
