Say you have AIM open and then you open safari and then itunes. Say you want to move all your conversations along with the buddy list at once with out moving everything else while using spaces. Press ‘command’ and move one of the items and everything involved with that application and it goes with it.
This works with any app. EG, you have 6 pages open in safari. Go to spaces. hold command down and then drag just one of the pages of safari and it moves all of them.
If you create a new message in Mail, and do Alt (options) + Command + I, then whatever message is selected in mail box list will appear in your compose window as if you are forwarding it.
If you’re like me and don’t like to change the top volume bar in itunes you can press command and Plus to turn it up and command and dash to turn it down.
I found this widget called “CharacterPal”, it has an option that lets you drag the widget to the desktop. All you have to do is start dragging the widget as you press F12. The good thing is that once the option is enabled you don’t need to keep “CharacterPal” open in the dashboard, so you can close it an still drag your favorite widget to the desktop. Hope this is helpful, enjoy!
I don’t know whether this trick has already been mentioned:
In the Finder, in List view, you can navigate using the up/down arrow keys. Now that’s well known. If the selection highlights a folder, pressing the right arrow key expands the folder (same as clicking on the “open” triangle symbol on the left side of the folders name).
Pressing the left arrow key collapses the folder again. If the selection highlights a document in an expanded folder, pressing the left arrow key moves the selection up to the containing folder, which then can be collapsed by pressing the left arrow key a 2nd time.
If you hold down command while clicking on bookmarks in the bookmarks bar it will open the link in a new tab. This also works in ‘Show all bookmarks’ by double clicking while holding down the command key.
When taking screen shot by pressing Apple+Shift+4 you can highlight a window or icon by pressing spacebar. If this is done right a camera will appear. Handy for pictures of screens of icons.
* james says… this is a neat trick that also works in Tiger!
If you have multiple windows open in one application, like safari, you can switch between them by pressing command and the”~” button (just above the tab button)
