    Cool Tricks on Your Mac?
    Just a general wondering really - I come across things I didn't know my mac could do all the time so I am just wondering what other tricks there are hidden away that people have discovered

    alt+shift+k gives you a 

    cmd+shift+3 gives you a full screen shot that gets saved straight to your desktop

    cmd+shift+4 gives you a selection tool to screen shot a particular area, press the space key to get a camera to take a screen shot of a particular window

    just to name a couple while my mind is blank.

    Wondering what you found though?

    Take a look at this fabulous list for all the shortcuts available, but not so much tricks, like baggss showed, which is cool.

    Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts

    This is a great page I found when I first got my Mac about 2 months ago. It takes time to get the important ones down but try and learn them if you want, it really improves your efficiency when you're trying to get a lot of work done in a short amount of time.
