    changing default os focus button
    I everyone
    How can i change the default focus button when i'm deleting a file on a server.

    Since the upgrade to 10.5.6 the focus of the warning button (The file will be delete immediatelly) is on cancel... But on previous version of osX (dont remember number) the focus was on (OK) so a simple and faster Enter on the keyboard doing the job. I know the tab key toggle the focus, but i dont want this additional task... So can i change the default focus bonton ??

    Thanks

    Don't think you'll be able to change the default focus but . . .

    Enter will activate the button that's all blue, space will activate the button that's got a blue surround.

    So if the button you want has a blue surround you could use the space bat rather than enter you used before.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    The surround appear on (OK) only with the tab key
    So it take two key - Tab and spacebar

    Its better of a mouse click but i search for one key step deleting
    It must be on focus first automatically

    Thanks anyway

    Does Option + Del skip the warning?

    Actually it might be Cmd+Shift+Option+delete . . . .
