    Thanks for taking the time to create this!

    One minor nit: In discussing the various Finder views in the beginning, LIST view (cmd-2) is inadvertently referred to as COLUMN view (cmd-3) — twice.

    For Quick Look, I find hitting the space bar easier than using cmd-Y (though I still need to remember cmd-Y so I can remember cmd-shift-Y for full-screen mode).

    Amazing how many different entries show up when searching Help for “shortcut”. :)

    Awww was about to say the quick look thing Dx.

    Well, at least to open up a doc, app, anything really, you can also press command + down arrow, instead of clicking ( i find it easier since i work on a macbook).

    The key word for me as Glen says is “remember” I do not even no where i put my glasses. I just use Finder, and use the one window that comes up,and in the side bar is all the main topics. There is no Hash key on the keyboard,and i wanted to find out how you get it because it was in an email. I found out it was Option-3# To be quite honest i hardly use Shortcut keys. As i said my memory is failing, and i am coming up to 63yrs now. I will keep watching for the really handy ones. Thanks Gary

    I have been checking my keyboard out. I live in the UK, and i have compared my keyboard to the one on the Apple site, UK and USA. My keyboard is different. I can just mention one off hand is the shift key below the caps lock. This is only a small key, but when i have looked at the others its large. I know a lot of people have been complaining about the numerical part that was left off, hence the small keyboard.
