I love my keyboard shortcuts, I couldn’t function without them. Even when I start using a new application, I try to find what built-in shortcuts will prove to be the most useful to me. Like spotlight for example. I can’t count the number of times I use ? + Space a day. This is true for a lot of applications that I run though. I only use shortcuts when I use Evernote, and it makes it more time efficient for me

But why do I bring this up? I mean shortcuts aren’t really mysteries are they? Well recently I stumbled across a shortcut on my Macbook Pro that launches a quick add event window for iCal. This command is ? + Space. Normally this launches full screen quick view in finder and in other applications it does other tasks. But when I use this shortcut and where in any application I get an “Add Event” window. I have been trying to track it down, but haven’t had much luck. I have checked every where that I could think of, Even in the Keyboard Shortcuts preferences. It is driving me crazy! I could over look it if I knew how it happened, But it is a complete mystery to me. So my question to you is, have you ever found a keyboard shortcut that was a complete mystery to you about how it got there? If so, let us know in the comments, and if you have any insight to this phenomena, let us know that too.

UPDATE: Well a friend of mine on Brightkite pointed out on a screenshot from a couple days ago a desktop calendar app I have been running, asking if it could be the culprit. Sure enough, The only app I didn’t check was iDesk-Cal. So thanks to BarkerJA on brightkite and twitter for your help.

iDesk-Cal is also an app I will be reviewing soon and showing off some features to.
