    Basically the first is in finder when you go into a folder i want to push backspace to go back to the previous folder but obviously backspace doesn't work to go to the last folder you were in. Is their a keyboard shortcut to do this?

    2nd I have noticed in firefox and safari when I am filling out information and stuff on a site and push tab to go to the next box instead of using the mouse it skips over drop down menus and most of the submit buttons. Is their a way to enable this so when I push tab the drop down menu is selected(like in windows). Thanks!

    Command-[ goes back, Command-] goes forward. If you want to know other keyboard shortcuts for navigating, take a look at the contents of the Finder "Go" Menu.

    Safari: Option-tab does the job, or you can change the settings in Preferences -> Advanced -> Press Tab to highlight each item on a webpage

    Firefox: dunno

    IN the System Preferences -> Keyboard&Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts Tab, you can define any and all keyboard shortcuts that you like. Also, unless I am mistaken, the Apple HIG (Human Interface Guidelines) dictate that any keyboard shortcut you define will override any define by the application or system initially.

    So, in DVD Player in Tiger, Command+0 (By the way, does anyone know the keycommand for the Command symbol?) would fullscreen the movie, even though Command+F was the full screen command in every other single stinking video player on OS X. So I redefined it to Command+F, and bam, no more Command+0

    In Leopard Command+F does do fullscreen. Command+0 makes it half-size.

    Yea, I found that out, but that is why I said that it was DVD Player in Tiger.
