thx guys, they both work Fn + backspace and the command + backspace

i'm a ex-windows user, so the command + tab key to switch apps is like second nature to me, i didn't even stop to think that this was something mac users did not have
but the command + ` combo doesn't work here
i looked it up in the help file, and it's in there to, but it does noet work, in safari anyway (OS 10.3)

A favourite (undocumented) shortcut of mine is Command + down arrow, which opens the currently selected file in the finder.

Conversely, Command + Up arrow opens the enclosing folder.

Hope that helps someone

there is a program called fn swithc, which allows you to set your f-keys to work as f-keys and not your short cutts for volume and screen brightness....

> fn swithc

Hello. Thanks for the reply. I have looked all over the place for any program along this line, at least wtih swithc and switch in it, and couldn't find anything. I also looked for function, etc.

Is there perhaps another name it goes by?

Thanks!

Well, I did get IM to work...it turns out that the version on the Mac Office X disk is 3.0...and it doesn't work with 10,3, I guess. When installed 3.5, IM now works.

As far as sending the file, can you send it to: gloker @ beaumont.k12.tx.us? (Please remove the spaces in that email address.)

Thanks!

Hello everyone!

does anyone know of a way to bind this "sideways-K" key (sorry, am too young on mac) to "forward delete"? That would seriously rock my world! I never use it for anything but forward delete is something I am missing. It's got the perfect position for something like that, too (At least on this Powerbook it does) - Forward delete on one button right besides the cursor keys? Yum! Yum!

thx in advance

I know some cool keyboard shortcus for taking screenshots.
besides the regular old shift+command+3 = entire screen shot
theres also:
shift+command+4, crosshairs come up, then drag to select area of screen to be captured,
shift+command+4 then tap space bar= a camera comes up, place over any window to capture the window, window when selected turns blue as in expose.
enjoy :mac:
