I’m not using an Apple-keyboard when working on my desk with my MacBook Pro, which creates a number of small but not serious annoyances. One of those annoyances are the reversed Command- and Option keys, another one is the missing “Eject” button.
So I tried to figure out how to eject CDs and DVDs from my MacBook Pro using Quicksilver. What I discovered was something that probably a lot of users know, but I didn’t . So I thought I’ll share it here:
If you don’t have an “Eject” button on your keyboard you can just press and hold the “F12″ key for two seconds and you CD/DVD will be ejected!
(Small disclaimer: I think you need at least Mac OS 10.2 for this to work!)
It’s that simple, no need for some fancy Quicksilver action. Sometimes life is just so much easier than expected.
