Warning:  Windows to Mac UserWhat I learned today while fumbling on the Mac Mini OSX 10.6.8

If I get stuck on a task I want to do, I remind myself it’s supposed to make sense.

It usually does :)

The W7 snipping tool equivalent is a keyboard shortcut!

Full-screen capture is apple-shift-3

Custom-size capture is apple-shift-4
Which was so strange for me to do 
that I sensed this is where gestures originated.

BTW — If you do not have an Apple Keyboard? It’s the Windows key!

Which THEN taught me

that my beloved and missing ctrl+v and ctrl+x [cut and paste] 

were probably apple-v and apple- x on the OSX 

… and the day was saved with new found productivity upon gumption to import my bookmarks and MOVE IN! 
Of Note: 

Google search revealed why X11 loaded with gimp.

I had installed the image editor

and was not 100% sure that X11 was not a rouge programme.

GIMP uses a separate windowing layer, the X11 windowing protocol, on Mac OS X which must be installed first. The XQuartz project provides this functionality. 
Whew!
