Finding Keyboard Shortcuts

Did you know that when you select a menu you can see the keyboard shortcuts next to the words? Check it out. If I'm in Mail and I want a new message all I have to do is press Apple + N to make a new message (instead of moving the mouse up and selecting it from the menu). Might sound like a useless bit of information but as you learn new keyboard shortcuts it can make your computer using experience much faster and much more productive. More examples: Apple + W closes whatever program or file you're in. Apple + Q quits that program instantly. Apple + P brings up the print dialog box. Apple + C is for Copy, Apple + V for paste.

The newer keyboards don't have the Apple, they might have Command or just the cloverleaf symbol.
