Mac OS X – Keyboard Shortcuts

For those that are moving from Windows to Mac OS (Apple), the keyboard and it’s related shortcuts can be frustrating.  It will take some time to memorize the keyboard shortcuts, but you’ll eventually get accustomed to it.  Finding out how to get yourself positioned at the start or end of a line can be quite annoying as HOME and END just don’t work the same (without tweaking your system — in some cases).

Enjoy!  If you have questions, let us know!
