Easy way to remember four important Mac keyboard shortcuts

Updated June 12th, 2019.

One could argue that Undo, Cut, Copy, and Paste are the menu items that make a Mac a Mac. They are always in the Edit menu, and every program uses the same keyboard shortcuts for them:

  • ⌘-Z for Undo
  • ⌘-X for Cut
  • ⌘-C for Copy
  • ⌘-V for Paste

Guess what? The keys are right next to each other, in the bottom row of the keyboard. That should make remembering them easier.

I don’t know how they came up with the Z for Undo, but that’s OK. I do have some ideas for X, C, and V but only if you ask.
