Mac Switch – Alerts

Grr… Whenever I get an alert message on Windows I can use tab to select the non-default button and then hit enter. On the Mac I haven’t found out how to do that – I’ve tried all sorts of options. I *have* to use the mouse or trackpad, which can be awefully annoying – especially if you are trying to close a number of alert window.

  1. In System Prefs, go to Keyboard & Mouse, Keyboard Shortcuts tab, and change “Full keyboard access” to “All controls”. That should let you tab between the buttons in a popup and you usually need to hit space to select the active one. Nice and unintuitive for Apple eh.

Tell me what you think
