Mac OS X: setting to have Tab key to bring focus to buttons

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/10/04

One of the things that bugged me when using Mac OS X after years of Windows usage was that the Tab key doesn’t focus buttons in dialogs.

Luckily, there is a setting for that, which by default is off.

Steps (press on a screenshot to enlarge):

  1. Select the “System Preferences

  2. Select “Keyboard
  3. Switch the radio button from “Text boxes and lists only

    to “All controls
  4. Then close the dialog.
