[MAC OS] control vs. command buttons

If you're using VNC or a Windows/Linux Virtual machine within MAC OS, you probably noticed the confusion coming from the fact the MAC OS command button is equivalent to Linux/Windows Control button. To align the buttons between the VNC/VM and MAC, you can modify the key in MAC to "swap" between command and control buttons:

System Preferences > Keyboard > Modifier Key

Another option:
System Preferences > Keyboard > Application Shortcut > All Applications, then use the settings below:
Add shortcut
Copy ^C
Undo ^Z
Cut ^X
Paste ^V
Select All ^A
