    These are great tips, thanks. I would like to use the keyboard shortcut and also retain the default functions of the keys. I tried using F5 which seems to have no default function. I have tried Keyboard fn setting both as "do nothing" & "change input source" Any ideas? Ron

    Ron: Look in System Preferences, Keyboard, Keyboard at the checkbox "Use F1, F2, etc." and read carefully to understand how the FN key affects the F-keys.

    I tried to add a shortcut to enable my Microsoft outlook.APP to one with SHIFT CMND M
    The keyboard short cut does not work.
    Is this because it is a Microsoft program and not a program inherent to macOS?

    Ira: A shortcut to do what, exactly? Does it work the you trigger it by clicking on it in the Shortcuts app?

    some apps have been add on her computer (activity monitor) . Someone is monitoring her hr computer and her phone under her noise! Do you have an idea, what could she do?

    Bernadette: Not sure what you are talking about here. The app "Activity Monitor" is part of macOS. It allows you to check out how much CPU, disk, network and energy apps and processes are using. It is a tool for you to use, if you want (most people never use it). It is not something someone else has placed there.
