    Hey guys, i find my hands a little tirirng when using the trackpad on my MB

    just wondering are there any short cuts like in windows
    ALT TAB means swicth between programs etc??

    and when i open applications i can use the keys to scroll down etc, but when i press the enter button, it just lets me change the name of the program.

    whats the tip to run that program without using the trackpad?

    Command-tab - cycle through applications
    Command-shift-tab - cycle backwards through applications
    Command-` (the key under esc) - cycle through windows of the front application
    Command-shift-` - cycle backwards through windows of the front application

    Command-O opens the selected items.

    Also see the [guide]Keyboard shortcuts[/guide] guide.

    Short cuts are a must if you are on the computer a lot. I laugh when I see people using the mouse to cut and paste these days.

    but i hate it when i dont know the shortcut for delete

    CMD + D gives me a duplicate i guess
