In the operating system macOS Sierra 10.12.1 inquisitive users found images, confirming not only the announcement of a new MacBook Pro, but also some innovative features laptops. In particular, we are talking about the touchpad, which will replace a number of function keys.
OLED display with an integrated fingerprint scanner will be positioned above the main keypad instead of keys f1-f12. In this case, Apple had to abandon the mechanical Escape button. Although on Macs it is used less frequently than on Windows, need this key cannot be overestimated.
But Apple has provided such a scenario, so in the new operating system came the ability to remap the hardware Escape key and other buttons. New modifier appeared in macOS Sierra.
In order to assign the Escape key to another button, you must do the following:
Step 1: Open System settings –> Keyboard.
Step 2: go to the Keyboard tab, click the modifier Key.
Step 3: Select the button to replace the drop down menu and click Escape.
Step 4: Click the OK button in the preferences window.
Thus instead of a mechanical Escape key on the new MacBook Pro, you can use the Ctrl, Option, Command, and Caps Lock.
