    System preferences -> Keyboard -> keyboard Shortcuts -> Add -> ...

    I can add Menu Title fine but when trying to enter the actual shortcut keys, nothing happens. I have tried on 2 different MacBook Pro with both Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion. What's wrong???:confused:

    Could you tell us, specifically, which application and which menu you are trying to add?

    Any and all applications/services. I have tried most. I just cannot add anything into the the actual shortcuts key box. To give one example I've tried:

    ..Services -> General -> Add -> All application -> Menu Title "New Finder Window" -> Keyboard shortcut: *CANNOT ADD ANYTHING* (I wanted to add "Command - Return")

    the cursor is blinking in the middle of the box but nothing is added as I klick away on the keyboard.

    See the attached image.

    If you want to add the shortcut <command><return> to the Finder's New Finder Window menu item, then you need to use Application Shortcuts, not Services.

    Yes, you are right.

    However, the main problem still exists; I cannot enter anything into the keyboard shortcut box
