Thread: Finder shortcut keys..
09-14-2006, 03:07 PM #1todd51GuestFinder shortcut keys..
Ok you really know your talking to an inexperienced mac user becuase I don't know what buttons to hit for the symbols on some of the Finder functions.
Emptying the trash I always have to click on Finder, Empty Trash, but I would like to just be able to hit the shortcut key. I know what the command symbol is...but what is the big arrow pointing up and the sideways arrow with the "X" in it? Thanks!!

The Apple key = Command
The odd looking "X" = Option
Big Up arrow = Shift
To throw something away, select it and hit Command+Delete.
The empty the trash hit, Command+Shift+Delete.
To go up in the folder hierarchy, hit Command+Up arrow. (same for down)
To go Back in Finder, hit Command+[
To open a folder, hit Command+O
To make a new folder, Command+Shift+N
To open a new window, Command+N
To go to your apps folder, Command+Shift+A
To go to your Utilities folder, Command+Shift+U
To go to your Network, Command+Shift+K
Those are all I can think of that I use often...I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
