System control shortcuts

Shortcuts that use AppleScript to interact with the Mac system features.

Use these shortcuts to simulate key presses on your Mac using the Run AppleScript action.

Show LaunchPad

Activates the key code for F4’s native function, which triggers the LaunchPad feature that shows your app icons like an iOS Home Screen.
