  • no but if you go to the '?' button when you are in the global keyboard section Apple lists it all, i will either paste the link for you to the web page.. or the whole list. (Too many for me to learn)

    OS X: Keyboard shortcuts
    A keyboard shortcut is a way to invoke a function in OS X by pressing a combination of keys on your keyboard. Learn about common OS X keyboard shortcuts.

    Using keyboard shortcuts
    To use a keyboard shortcut, press a modifier key at the same time as a character key. For example, pressing the Command key (it has a symbol) and then the "c" key copies whatever is currently selected to the Clipboard. This is also known as the Command-C keyboard shortcut. You can see the keys that map to many shortcuts by looking in an app's menus.
    A modifier key is a part of many keyboard shortcuts. A modifier key alters the way other keystrokes or mouse/trackpad clicks are interpreted by OS X. Modifier keys include: Command, Shift, Option, Control, Caps Lock, and the fn key. These keys are represented by special symbols when you see them in menus and other parts of OS X:

    ⌘ Command key
    ⌃ Control key
    ⌥ Option key
    ⇧ Shift Key
    ⇪ Caps Lock
    fn Function Key
    When the fn key is used with the top row of keys on your keyboard, it makes them perform a different function. For example, if a keyboard shortcut is Control-F2, you press fn-Control-Brightness on your keyboard. If you look closely at the Brightness key at the top of your keyboard, there is an F2 symbol indicating that this key works as a function key (F2 or function 2) when you hold fn on the keyboard.

    If you use a non-Apple keyboard that includes a Windows key, the Alt key is the same thing as pressing Option, and the Windows key is the same thing as Command. You can change how these keys are interpreted from the Keyboard pane of System Preferences.

    guess i will have to split this up too large to send
