Sorry to say, but I’ve been a Mac user probably longer than any Mac user you know. My first 128k Mac hit my desktop a few days after release back in 1984. As much as I could be called a power user (old age and experience have value), I’m always on the lookout for a way to do what I do on my Mac better, faster, easier.
Most of us point and click to get things done. More experienced users remember the keyboard shortcuts and use the Mac’s mouse less. In between is a Mac app called Keymo. It’s a way to use the mouse pointer onscreen by using the keyboard.
Keymo has four basic ways to move the pointer around the Mac’s screen by only using the keyboard.
Move is the easy way. Hit the keyboard combo and the pointer moves in a specific direction and speed.
Move by Division is another option, which subdivides the Mac’s screen so you can move quickly to a different spot with ease, even picking up where you last placed the pointer.
Then, there’s Move To Edge or Corner. This shortcut does what you expect; a single keystroke jumps the pointer to the edge or corner.
Finally, if you have a Mac with multiple displays, the extra screen real estate makes it more cumbersome to move around, so there’s the Move To Other Display setting; a shortcut that gets the mouse pointer the other display in an instant.
One reason many of us may not try new apps or new methods to work is because of the effort required to go through a learning process. Such is the issue with Keymo. It takes effort. Once you’ve learned the shortcuts, it actually saves time to keep your hands on the keyboard instead of constantly reaching for the mouse. But the effort to learn goes against the grain of what we’ve taught ourselves for many years– point and click.
