Hi all, just wondering if there is somewhere where I can view a complete list of all shortcuts used in Mojave, so that I can view and adjust them in an organised way?
I know I can go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts, and view various shortcuts organised by category in the left-hand list (e.g. Launchpad & Dock, Display, Mission Control etc.), however I would very much like to view all the shortcuts in one place, and be able to filter by title/modifier keys used etc.

The reason I want to do this is I have created some shortcuts in an application that don't seem to be working, and I suspect that a preexisting shortcut on my OS is interfering, however trying to check to see if the particular sequence of keys that is failing to respond in said application is already being used in the OS is like shooting in the dark; it's a tedious process to have to check each and every separate location (i.e. Launchpad & Dock, Display, Mission Control etc.) to see if the shortcut is being used somewhere.

Further, it seems that some shortcuts are not present in any of the categories in the left-hand list; many of the shortcuts in the list on the following webpage, including the "System Shortcuts", can't be found in any of the categories in the left-hand list of System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts (as mentioned earlier): https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201236
Is it the case that many shortcuts on mac simply can't be viewed/modified, or am I looking in the wrong place?

Thanks for the help!!

Hello,

Here is a downloadable organized list of many of them: Printable Mac Keyboard Shortcut Page For macOS Mojave. There are also a few apps in the App Store that display them in different forms - search keyboard shortcuts.

Many of the keyboard combinations are not editable/customizable, as they are standardized by macOS and work across all OS platforms.

Hope that helps,

C

I used to have a list of Macmost shortcuts for an older iteration of OSX- handy!

Is there any way to distinguish which ones can and can't be edited? Perhaps it's safe to assume that if it isn't under System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts, then it can't be edited?
We'll see whether or not the app elucidates this.

It's hard to work out which of the Keyboard shortcut apps to go with, but I reckon I'll try Quicksilver, and maybe Alfred for comparison at a later time.

Cheers.
