I wrote about this one a long time ago but I re-post it every few years because it seems so easily forgotten or missed or “I didn’t know that!”
Longtime Mac users know that “Save As” was ⇧⌘S but Apple changed that in Lion to “Duplicate” which no one asked for, and I’ve never met anyone who likes it.
However, if you click on the “File” menu and hold down the Option key, “Save As…” will reappear! Or you can just press ⌥⌘S to use “Save As…”!
But what we really want is to have “Save As…” restored to its rightful place.
Even better, we’d like to banish “Duplicate” to never be seen again.
We can do this. We have the technology.
First, go to System Preferences » Keyboard » App Shortcuts.
Then. click the + button as shown here:
Set "Application to “All Applications”
Enter “Save As…” as the “Menu Title”
Use ⇧⌘S as the Keyboard Shortcut, like so:
If you just do the above step, “Duplicate” will appear in the “File” menu under “Save As…”
If that’s what you want, stop reading.
However, if you never use “Duplicate” and want to get rid of it, repeat the same process as above, but this time set the “Menu Title” to “Duplicate” and the Keyboard Shortcut to ⌥⌘S like this:
Now when you go to the “File” menu, you will see “Save As” but you won’t see “Duplicate” unless you hold down Option.
