[ TECHLIFE TEAM ]
THERE ARE MANY well-known keyboard combinations that let you do things on a Mac much quicker than with a mouse, but there are also some that add functions you may not be aware of. Chances are that, if you need to do something regularly, there will be a keyboard trick that you can use over and over and it will become so natural to you that using the mouse may eventually feel like something you only do when absolutely necessary.
We will highlight some lesser-known tricks and also explain what they do with the aim that you can use them each day to speed up and expand your Mac usage. macOS is designed to utilise the keyboard for much more than mere typing in a variety of ingenious ways. QUIT AND HIDE
When you navigate between apps using the Command and Tab keys, you can press ‘Q’ when an app is highlighted to immediately quit it. You can also press ‘H’ to hide the app and continue to use these shortcuts for as many apps as you like with the Command key held down. MANAGE APPS
Holding down the Command key and clicking an app in the Dock will immediately bring up a Finder screen showing exactly where the app is on your Mac. You can now delete or manage the app as you require — a huge time saver.
