Quick Mac Tip – Search for Menu Commands in Help Menu

I encountered this cool tip while watching some Mac Break Work. If you can’t remember where to find an exact menu command in program in OS X

  1. Go to the Help Menu
  2. Type word to search for the command. This will populate a list of possible matched commands

  3. Highlight the particular command and click it to execute it or just hover over it and see the ‘magic’. Not only will it open the menu under which the command is listed under but it will also have a little moving pointer that points you to the command

This is great for exploring commands and just finding where a particular command has disappeared to in the menus
