I use an iMac 21.5 and as of today I am having trouble with the command key shortcuts. When I am using safari I use command key + T to open a new tab, but now when I press these two keys, it indeed opens a new window, but it is called 'untitled' instead of bringing me to my top sites page. It also refreshes the current page I was on, and displays the top sites page. I've had a look at keyboard settings and I really don't remember fiddling around with anything. It is probably something simple and stupid that I've missed but someone please help me!

    HI and welcome to Apple Discussions...

    Open System Preferences / Keyboard then select the Keyboard Shortcuts tab.

    Click: Restore Defaults

    Quit System Preferences.

    Relaunch Safari and try the Command key.

    If that didn't help, try troubleshooting the Safari .plist file. . Open a Finder window. Select your Home Folder in the Sidebar on the left. It has a small house icon. Then open the Library folder then the Preferences folder.

    Move the com.apple.Safari.plist file from the Preferences folder to the Desktop. Now launch Safari. If your keyboard shortcuts work, move the .plist file to the Trash.

    Could you please take a moment and click My Settings on the right side of this window. We know it's an iMac but which Mac OS X? Your computer model and operating system in your profile helps us troubleshoot. Thanks!

    If you aren't certain which Mac OS X this is, in the Finder, click the Apple icon (top left in your screen) then click: About This Mac. The version number is displayed there. Thanks!
