    OK so I am new to macs so don't blast me for this but..
    What is the keyboard shortcut to access the menu bar on a macbook? (akin to the alt key on XP). I have read it is 'Ctrl F2' but on the macbook I am using that just adjusts the brightness?? :confused:

    it is control + f2 to access the menu bar, however, since you are on a macbook, you need to hold down function as well.

    I'm looking for another shortcut...

    I use CMD+Tab to cycle through my open applications, and when I select one it shows up in the menu bar. However, the app stays "minimized" (for lack of a better word) in the dock.

    Is there a shortcut (other than Quicksilver) to open the app that is showing as active in the menu bar?

    Thanks.

    So it is thank you. How do I change that keyboard shortcut to something else simpler?
