    Hi guys,

    I've been using my MacBook Pro for around 4 months now, and I love every minute of it.... to the point where getting on the PC to play games is a hassle.

    Anyway, as much as I love my Mac, there's still one Windows quirk that I still have. In Windows, when you hit the "Tab" button (when typing like in a webpage), it'll select the next button for you (in this case, what would be "Submit New Thread"). However, since OS X skips to the next text field instead of the next selectable object, I often find myself having to backtrack and clicking... which, for a keyboard shortcut junkie, is less than ideal.

    I know, it's really a VERY minor thing, and I apologize for that. I'm just wondering if there's anything I can do to change it. :)

    System preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard shortcuts -> Full keyboard access. Check "Full Control" and see if that doesn't help. :)
