Mac OS X Key-Strokes & Shortcuts

August 18th, 2011 No comments

Troubles with your MacOS X Lion installation? Want to know how to restart your Mac in ‘Safe mode’?

Here are some shortcuts helping to solve the issues:

  • Eject CD on boot –> Mouse button after power on
  • OS X Safe boot –> Hold Shift key during startup
  • Startup from CD / DVD –> Hold C during startup
  • Startup in Verbose mode –> Hold cmd-V during startup
E.g. starting the Mac in ‘safe mode’ shows you if the problem you are facing is based on a extension not working, or even the Lion installation itself.
So this helped me to pin down iScreen as the extension hiding my logon-screen.
