Control V For Mac

Visualize sensor readings in your status bar Macs Fan Control is a small Mac app that allows you to visualize the sensor readings on your own, and adjust the fans speed accordingly. The Visual Studio for Mac editor supports powerful built-in refactoring options such as Extract Method and Rename, accessible via the Quick Actions menu. Integrated Source Control Manage your code in Git or SVN repos hosted by any provider, including GitHub and Azure DevOps.

Switching from Windows to Mac has its jarring moments. Among the first things that will jolt you are the lack of a second mouse button on the Macbook touchpad and the Apple mice; and the fact that Ctrl-C does not copy anything in a Mac. (You probably found this blog entry looking for a way to do a right-click, right?)
  • For example, press Alt, and then press one of the old menu keys E (Edit), V (View), I (Insert), and so on. A notification pops up saying you're using an access key from an earlier version of Microsoft Office. If you know the entire key sequence, go ahead and use it. If you don't know the sequence, press Esc and use Key Tips instead.
  • Keyboard tips Thank you for sharing the keyboard Ctrl C, V, and Z tips. You accidently omitted Ctrl A but I figured that out. Let me in turn tell you this that may help you. Ctrl + will enlarge a page. You can do that several times to make it readable.To reverse this, type Ctrl - to step down each step finally returning this the the original type.

So let me give the emergency relief to you and write other useful tips after.
  • To do a right-click: Press and hold down the ctrl key and then click the mouse or touchpad button.
  • Alternately, you may also right-click using the multi-touch trackpad. First, position the pointer over the link or button you wish to right-click. Press the trackpad with your index finger. While holding the first finger down, tap another finger on the the track pad (try your middle finger). This will generate a right-click. BUT you need to activate this feature. Open System Preferences > Trackpad. In Trackpad Gestures, check the box for 'Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click.'
  • The equivalent of a Ctrl-C in a Mac is Command-C (or Cmd-C for short). The command key, by the way, is that key with the Apple icon and the strange square with four outward loops (⌘).
  • Bear in mind that most 'Ctrl' shortcuts on Windows can be substituted with the 'Cmd' key. Example, Ctrl-V in Windows (shortcut for paste) is Cmd-V in Mac.

Switching to a Mac requires some patience at the start. After all, some things you do in Windows are done differently in a Mac. And although at first you may get frustrated with this 'cultural change', you'll realize that tasks in Mac are actually simpler than in Windows. Plus Mac does not let you do some Windows commands simply to protect you from hurting yourself :). (More on this in future posts).

To use a keyboard shortcut, press and hold one or more modifier keys and then press the last key of the shortcut. For example, to use Command-C (copy), press and hold the Command key, then the C key, then release both keys. Mac menus and keyboards often use symbols for certain keys, including modifier keys:


On keyboards made for Windows PCs, use the Alt key instead of Option and the Windows logo key instead of Command.

Some keys on some Apple keyboards have special symbols and functions, such as for display brightness , keyboard brightness , Mission Control and more. If these functions aren't available on your keyboard, you may be able to reproduce some of them by creating your own keyboard shortcuts. To use these keys as F1, F2, F3 or other standard function keys, combine them with the Fn key.
