Viewing the TODO's

To get that little tab that shows the TODO's you pressed cmd. When I press the windows key(I found that this is the equivalent to the mac cmd key) and I hold it down, I don't get that tab to view the TODO's.. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

I found an icon in the lower-left side of the console that you can click to view TODO's so that seems to be an option. As for the windows key not working, I still don't know.

For windows it's alt+6, a word out to the instructor, the mac and window shortcuts are very different, I recommend annotating the tutorials to address this issue.

Thank you Shariq I second that notion. Ive noticed Craig annotates the majority of these but some slip by. I'd like to see Mac to Windows shortcut side by side if anyone has found such a page.

You're right, Derek. I can't seem to get the cmd key to work either. Maybe he's mistaken about using the cmd key and he's using something else instead

I'm using mac and also had same problem. At the end figured it out. You have to hit CMD two times and on second hit just hold it. That worked for me.

I found that hitting Alt + Alt (double tapping and holding) did the same thing. I found it on accident, thinking there must be something similar.

Hope this helps!

It's a shame this is so geared towards mac. The instructor got a little lazy on sharing the Windows shortcuts.
