    Hello..

    When a dialog opens up (see screen shot). How do I move from left to right so I don't have to move my mouse? Just the keyboard. In windows it is tab. I have tried tab, shift+tab, cmd+tab, option+tab, arrows up/down/left/right etc. I have looked at the following site for keyboard shortcuts: http://www.danrodney.com/mac/index.html

    I know it is going to be something right under my nose but I can't find it...

    I am at a loss.

    System Prefs > Keyboard has the keyboard shortcuts

    If the option you want is highlighted hit the return key.
    Command S saves
    Command D doesn't save and closes the window.
    Cancel is one I don't know.
    S

    Right, but how do I get it over to say "do not save"?? I have looked in the preference and I am not seeing what I want to see? Unless it is named something different?


    **Update, just figured it out.... created a new one... !

    Alternatively, you can enable "all controls" in the keyboard preferences (keyboard shortcuts). Now you can tab to your desired button and press space to confirm.

    ....and, you'll note that you can change this "on the fly" with Control-F7. (toggle on and off)
    You don't really even need to open System Preferences.
