Some Keyboard Shortcuts For Macbook Pro With Retina Display

I switched from Windows and Linux platform to Apple’s Mac ¬†in 2012. I am maintaining this shortcut list as I discover them for myself – which are a bit different from the other platforms I used in the past. I hope I will get used to all these commands someday and will no longer have to refer to this page. But hopefully by maintaining this list here, I might help a couple of wandering souls.
