Disabling ⌘Q Application Quit

On a number of occasions I’ve accidentally hit ⌘Q instead of ⌘⇥ and closed the current application.

Do disable this “feature” we go to System Preferences » Keyboard, choose Application Shortcuts in the left pane. Now, double click on the current keyboard shortcut for Show Help Menu and press ⌘Q to remap it.

Now, whenever you press ⌘Q by accident you’ll just open the help menu instead of closing the application.

Also, this is quite a useful reference for the special Mac keyboard symbols.
