MacOS is great because most actions can be performed using keyboard combinations without having to touch the mouse. But if the existing keyboard combinations seem inconvenient to you, they can easily be changed using the Karabiner-Elements program.
This is a small keyboard mapper that allows you to customize any keyboard combination on your computer as you see fit. The app works by replacing the signals coming from the keyboard to the system.
The app allows you to change the settings of the function keys and also switch the behavior of the “Fn” key. For example, if you want the action of the active application to be performed instead of the system action when the function keys are pressed.
Event Viewer is also installed with Karabiner-Elements. This app allows you to know which signals each key gives, making it easier to navigate the drop-down menus in Karabiner-Elements.
To start using Karabiner-Elements, you need to add a new rule. To do this, go to the “Complex Modifications” tab, click “Add Rule,” and select “From Userspace.” In the new window, you can configure the desired key combination.
Karabiner-Elements has a large community of users and developers, so if you have any questions or problems, you can ask for help in the program’s forums or GitHub repository.
