Become A Mac Keyboard Shortcut Genius with CheatSheet

Written by iHospital. Posted in How To

The CheatSheet App is a great application for new Mac Users that shows Mac keyboard shortcuts for Mac Apps in an opaque pop-up window.  It’s free and you can download it here. Please note it requires OS X 10.7 or later.

This is an extremely useful application as there are literally thousands of keyboard shortcuts available to users on Mac OS X.  The CheatSheet app is a great way to quickly learn the shortcuts you use most often.

Using the CheatSheet application is simple:

  1. Download the CheatSheet app here
  2. Place it in /Applications/folder and then launch the app
  3. Hold down the command key for a couple seconds and the entire list of shortcuts is displayed for the application you are currently using
  4. Navigate through the commands by continuing to hold down the command key and clicking on the command you want to activate it

The CheatSheet app is a great way to quickly learn all of the available Mac shortcuts for all of your favorite applications.  It runs in the background without taking up your menubar or dock space on OS X.

Troubleshooting Tips:  Should some apps not respond to the hotkeys, try re-launching those applications, or try releasing and holding Command again and it should activate.  Also, because CheatSheet runs in the background, you have to use a feature such as Activity Monitor to shut it down.

All in all, the CheatSheet App is an extremely useful application for all new Mac users.  It’s free and we guarantee you’ll thank us later!
