How to: Get to the Desktop quickly in Save or Open dialogue (Mac OSX)

Posted by on Jul 17, 2012 in shortcuts, thoughts | No Comments

If you’re like me and use your desktop for temporary files and working documents (before you save them somewhere that’s backed-up), getting to the Desktop in an Open/Save dialogue window is a frequent operation.

Fortunately there’s a shortcut key for that – Cmd+D. Very handy.

Just don’t use it in Finder! (It’ll delete the currently selected file/folder of course.)

Seems to be a bit of a conflict there?
