    $\begingroup$ Also worth noting that there is an option in the User Preferences to change the spacebar action back to search (at least in an older 2.8 build I have). $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot May 21 '19 at 15:45
  • $\begingroup$ Please explain how to do this on a mac since F3 on a mac opens mission control $\endgroup$ – MicroMachine Aug 21 '19 at 22:45

    $\begingroup$ @MicroMachine that would be Fn + F3 (macs have the F keys the secondary buttons.) $\endgroup$ – David Dec 7 '19 at 3:48

In 2.81 you can set the Spacebar Action in Preferences -> Keymap and set it back to 'Search'.

Blender Preferences - Spacebar Action - Search
