How to tab between all fields in OSX

I like to use the keyboard wherever possible, but by default tabbing to certain fields in OSX is disabled. For example, if you try to access a password protected website in Safari, and it pops up with the name and password box, you can’t tab to the “Remember this password in my keychain field”.

However, it is very easy to fix this:

  • Open up System Preferences > Keyboard
  • At the bottom of this window is a section labelled “Full Keyboard Access”. Click the “all controls” option.

And that’s it! You should now be able to tab cycle between all fields including the remember password field in password prompts.
