Lesson 3. Introduction to Mac OS X > Use a keyboard shortcut

Use a keyboard shortcut

The trick to using a keyboard shortcut is this: hold down the modifier keys all together and keep them held down, then tap the associated letter, number, or Fkey just once for each time you want to perform an action.

For instance, the keyboard shortcut to close a window is Command W, so hold the Command key down and then tap the letter W just once. If there are three windows open on your Desktop, you can hold the Command key down and tap the letter W three times and it will close three windows.
