Full keyboard access and Finder shortcuts

Depending on how and how much you like to use your keyboard for getting around, you might consider going to “System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Keyboard Shortcuts” and enabling “Turn on full keyboard access”. Among many things, this lets you tab through drop down menus on web pages. (You’d already given up all hope, hadn’t you?)

That “Keyboard Shortcuts” tab is also the place to enable or re-assign a bunch of key commands you may not know were even available in the Finder (did you know you can jump to the Dock using your keyboard?).

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
