I would like to know what key or key combination opens the search field in Blender 2.8 on a Mac. Can anyone answer this? "F3" does not do it. Thanks!

You have to hold down function (fn) then hit f3.

If this is not working for you maybe you can change your hotkey for that. You can read about Keymap editor in the link below. The Keymap editor lets you change the default hotkeys. You can change keymaps for each of Blender’s editors. https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/editors/preferences/keymap.html

    $\begingroup$ You might want to explain how to change the shortcut in detail, otherwise your answer is just a copy of the other answer already given one year ago. $\endgroup$
