    Apple key + c and Apple key + v. Basically for common shortcuts like this, whatever the windows one was use Apple instead of ctrl. :)

    Edit...too slow. :D

    If you're constantly swapping between PC and Mac, one thing you can do is swap your ctrl- and command- keys, (under system preferences... somewhere... don't have a mac handy atm)

    probably not the best of solutions if you want to get used to macs, but it can help

    For future reference, if you think there is a keystroke combo for a certain function, you can look for it in the menu:

    No, ALT-L (Or Apple-L) highlights the URL bar, so you don't have to move your mouse over and double-click on it.

    Even worse, I have a Windows keyboard on my Mac right now, and the command-key translates to the Windows key (the one with the flying window on it.) So I have to push Window+C to copy, Window+V to paste, etc.

    the longer my day at work (pc) the harder i have switching my brain to my Mac keyboard. I am getting to old for this. Gotta get my company on the Mac bandwagon.
