  • Did you know, you can have different sorting orders for different folders in your MAC? To use it, just
    • go to the folder you want to sort
    • press [cmd]+[j]
    • select the option you want.
    • This option is folder specific and will apply to the folder you are currently in.
  • Change tab in Chrome
    Press ⌘ + Option and the right arrow together to go to the next tab. Press ⌘ + Option and the left arrow together to go to the previous tab. Press Ctrl + Tab to scroll through your tabs. Or ⌘ + a number will take you to that number tab.
  • Lock screen in Mac
    If you’re using a Mac that’s running macOS Mojave, go to the Apple menu and choose Lock Screen or press Command+Control+Q. This will lock your Mac and return you to the Login screen. For older versions of the operating system, press the Control+Shift+Power button (or Control+Shift+Eject if your Mac has an optical drive).
  • Open a recently closed tab: control+shift+T
  • navigate through other chrome windows:
    • if you are in the chrome window, press [command]+[~] until you get your desired chrome window

I will keep updating the list as soon as I use more shortcuts.
