After using nothing but PCs for the past 15 or so years, getting a MacBook has given me a little more of a learning curve that I was expecting. Fortunately it’s been pretty intuitive and hasn’t been that bad. But there’s been one little snag that kept catching me.
By default the tab key does not stop at select / dropdown menus on forms. And as I tend to tab through forms pretty quickly it’s caught me several times entering data into the wrong fields. Fortunately, with the help of Google and this page I found a solution.
Simply go to the Keyboard section under System Preferences and select All Controls on the bottom. That’s it.
