Chapter 4. Keys & the Keyboard > Control Key ctrl or control

Control Key ctrl or control

The Control key is standard on Macintosh keyboards—it’s usually on the bottom, far-left, and often on the far-right as well. Contextual menus on the Mac (page 56) usually use the Control key, as do a number of other keyboard shortcuts. Also, this key makes it easier for those who are running DOS or Windows software on the Macintosh. Be sure to read directions carefully and make sure you use the Control key when the directions call for Control and the Command key when they call for Command.
