could someone please explain what it does. i dont quite understand.
At its most basic it is an app launcher. Instead of launching lets say iTunes by clicking on the doc or opening your apps folder you would simply type in a short cut such as 'it'. For those that are more keyboard centric the mouse centric this can be quite a time saver. I began by saying "at its most basic", and the true power of QuickSilver or Launchbar (which I prefer) is that you can extend this power of simply launching an app. For instance you can select some text and in a very few keystrokes open Mail and send that text to someone in your address book. This only scratches the surface of what QS can do, and I'll leave an explanation of "all that it can do" to some one who has truly mastered it.
noob question, but what's the default keyboard combo to bring up quicksilver?
Control + Spacebar
I think it is cmd + space. I've had mine on ctrl + space, as if I remember correctly cmd + space also brights up spotlight.
I use cmd+ Q since i never use it to shut app's
I use cmd+x.
Easy because then you only have to move to the d and f keys. Your other fingers are already on a and s.
