Ctrl in Windows is Cmd in Mac

There are two most common questions by Mac switchers:
  • How to right-click (there is only one clicker bar on the old Macbooks and the new aluminum Macbooks don't even have them) on a Mac.
  • How to do copy-paste or cut-and-paste on a Mac (or Ctrl-C, Ctrl-X, Ctrl-V or Ins in Windows).
The first question is answered in this blog post on how to right-click.

The second question's answer is simply to substitute Ctrl with the "command" key on the Mac. There are two of these, one on either side of the spacebar. So if on Windows you do Ctrl-C to copy, just do a Command-C or Cmd-C. Here's a quick summary:

  • Copy: Ctrl-C = Cmd-C
  • Paste: Ctrl-V = Cmd-V
  • Cut: Ctrl-X = Cmd-X
