This post will guide you through the complete procedure of getting the “Save As” functionality back to OS X Mountain Lion. Follow this step-by-step guide to get the task accomplished:

Step 4: Add New Shortcut:

If you notice, you’ll see a ‘+’ button at the bottom of the list on right. This button allows you to add a new shortcut. In the ‘Menu Title’ write “Duplicate” to save the shortcut with this name. Specify ‘Command + Shift + Option + D’ in the Keyboard Shortcut field and press Add. Click the ‘+’ button once again to add a new shortcut with the name “Save As” and set the corresponding keystroke combination as, ‘Command + Shift + S’.
