dmasaoka@idgcommunications.comWant to take screenshots or quickly hide apps on your desktop? There's a quick macOS keyboard shortcut for that—and plenty of other things, too! In this video, Macworld's Leif Johnson shows you 10 great shortcuts (and variations on them) that will save a lot of time. Master them, and you'll rarely need to reach for your mouse. Most of these are Mac-specific, so we've avoided familiar cross-system shortcuts for copying, pasting, and things of the sort (although you should totally learn those, too).
