I have an iMac (about 8 months old) running Lion 10.7.3. Today when I turned it on, my shortcut keys for desktops/spaces just stopped working. I have no idea what the problem is.


In "settings > keyboard > mission control", I have a check mark in "move left a space" and my shortcut defined as "command+1". Same for "move right a space" (only command+2). There are no conflicts. But for some reason, they don't work. I just get this annoying sound you get when a shortcut is undefined.


I have tried:


-Rebooting (didn't help)

-Returning to defaults (didn't help. In fact, the "move left/right a space" do not work even with default settings)

-Banging my head against the wall (didn't help).


If you have any ideas, please let me know! Thanks!

iMac (27-inch Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
