6 Keyboard Shortcuts You Can Use In Mac Open And Save Dialogs

When you save or open a file in an app on the Mac, you get a dialog box with several buttons. You can use keyboard shortcuts inside that dialog to cancel, perform the default action, and do other things. You can choose a location using the keyboard, either with a single shortcut or by specifying a path. You can also navigate to any of the buttons using the tab key and spacebar.

    Shortcuts are great, Gary, and absolutely necessary if you use your Mac in your job. I'm astonished at the number of people who never bother with them: always go to the menu to print a document for instance. Many people don't even know the basic shortcuts of command-c and command-v (or control if you use a Wndows machine).

    There are some great keyboard shortcuts options in the System Preferences, Keyboard, Text columns. I use typing an "l" (el) three times for my home email address. jjj creates "John", jss types out my full name and so on. There are few limitations and for anyone with twenty-nine characters in heir name or email address, it's a winner.
