Most of us already know a few shortcuts. Command-Tab to view all open apps. Command-Q to Quit. Command-C to Copy and Command-V to Paste. The problem with shortcuts is our ability to remember more than a handful that we don’t use regularly is limited. Here’s a utility to help fix that.
Shortcuts R Super
The utility is called Super Shortcuts and all is does is let you create a handful of additional user customized shortcuts that work on applications, websites, even files and folders.
Open the app. Select Manage Shortcuts. Add favorites: files, folders, apps, websites. Then use Keyboard Shortcuts to assign, well, the keyboard shortcuts you want for each item on the list.
That’s just about it.
Don’t get excited, though. You’ll still have to think about which shortcuts to assign to which files, folders, apps, or links– but even that is easy peasy.
Fortunately, that’s easy, too, and once you get the shortcuts the way to want them in Shortcuts, they just stay that way– easily accessible via the keyboard.
The keyboard is exactly what separates the average Mac user from the power users. Keep your hands on the keyboard and you get more done, and get it done faster, than using mouse or trackpad.
Yes, it takes some effort, but the reward comes once you get over the hump of avoiding anything but the keyboard.
What could be easier than this?
Keyboard shortcuts are your friend. Unfortunately, Super Shortcuts does not have a trial version (no try-before-you-buy option), and it’s right at my threshold for throw-away money).
