Is there a way to setup the iMac so ctl-c & ctl-v can be used to cut & paste?
What's wrong with the usual shortcuts for those functions? -c and -v work just fine, in case you're not aware.
I can't stand control being the button to do stuff on Windows. I use my thumb to hold command so I always accidentally hurt my fingers trying to stretch control+T on Windows using my thumb on control. It's just too far away. Even using another finger on control still isn't very comfortable.
Thanks very much. I didn't know about the key.
You must have very small hands, or an unusually large keyboard. I can reach the 'T' with either thumb holding down Control. My keyboard has a control key on either side.
To the OP: I've known people who wanted to change the cut/copy/paste shortcuts to Control instead of Command. But, on my keyboard at least (and I think on any Mac-compatible keyboard I've ever used) the command key is closer to the x-c-v keys. So I say, get used to the improvement!
I can reach the T (barely), but it is so uncomfortable. Plus as you said, command being close is better as well.
