Useful keys on a MacBook Air with Finnish keyboard

November 24th, 2012 5 comments

Wow, it’s been two and a half years since my last post.  I don’t think blogging is my thing.  I think and plan too much about what to write and then never get around to it.  So instead, I think I’ll just use this space to write down stuff so I don’t forget.

For example, I can never remember how to type pipes or square brackets on my MacBook Air.  A quick Google doesn’t really help as it seems to be different on my Finnish keyboard.  So here’s a list of keys that I think are useful to know:

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

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 what to capture)
Print window = Cmd + Shift + 4 and then press Spacebar

Delete = Fn + Backspace
Delete file from Finder = Cmd + Backspace
