Activate the Don't Save button in Lion from the keyboard using AppleScript
Authored by: flip on Mar 17, '12 09:28:57AM
They didn't change that hot key for no reason: Cmd-D has always been the hot key to jump to the Desktop folder in Finder and in Open dialogs. So by making this change in Save dialogs, they actually made things more intuitive (at least for new Mac users and for people who have no problems adapting to change—and remember, the ability to adapt is key to survival!).

Now about the new hot key, you may argue that not saving a document is different than deleting it, if you like to split hairs, but you gotta admit that the result is the same. And at least it's an easy one to remember.

No, command-d had always been don't save. Also "Duplicate" in the Finder.
command-SHIFT-d is go to desktop.

command-delete is NOT a great choice, too easy to loose track of your focus, think you are doing command-d in a dialog, but don't realize you have a folder selected on server -- command-delete -- folder is deleted from server and gone forever as server has no trash can (unless command-z saves you).

I don't so much mind them changing it, but it would have been nice to TELL us, I am thankful for this post as I never would have guessed command-delete.
I DO wish one could change it, though, in a normal sys preferences manner, or at least thru terminal.
