Developer useful keys on a MacBook Air

macbook-air-slim

Welcome to my blog. I’ve bought a MacBook Air for my personal stuff and just to check if it’s the best laptop as so many people say.
It is truly amazing!

So far, I’ve been working with Microsoft as a developer and I never had the chance to experiment with a Mac device. I’m very amazed.

The keyboard is so smooth and sensitive. Here we go with the first tip:

Pipe (|) = Alt + 7
Backslash () = Shift + Alt + 7
Open square bracket ([) = Alt + 5
Closed square bracket (]) = Alt + 6
Open curly bracket ({) = Alt + 8
Closed curly bracket (}) = Alt + 9
Dollar sign ($) = Alt + 4

Page up = Fn + Up
Page down = Fn + Down
Print screen = Cmd + Shift + 3
Partial print screen = Cmd + Shift + 4
(You get a cursor to select the portion of the screen to capture)
Delete = Fn + Backspace
Delete file from Finder = Cmd + Backspace

Chrome
Refresh = cmd + r
Developer tools = alt + cmd + i

VirtualBox
Host + Fn + Left Arrow = Host + Home
