iTerm2: Beeping and Shortcuts

One thing I enjoy about using Mac is that browsers won’t make those distracting beeping sounds when you mistype something. Unfortunately, iTerm2 has enabled such a feature by default.

To turn off the beeping sound effect, go to

  1. Preferences
  2. Profiles
  3. Terminal
  4. Notifications
  5. Silence bell

Another annoying feature is its default key bindings, which are in many ways different from those listed by Apple.

To switch to a more “natural” key mapping system, go to

  1. Perferences
  2. Profiles
  3. Keys
  4. (Under Key Mappings) Presets
  5. Natural Text Editing

Writing short notes.
