Making Friends With Mac

Personalising Your Mac for Efficiency and Productivity

Your friend Mac is pretty powerful and can help you be very efficient and productive at work. The problem is, not all of us know the things about Mac that can be really helpful for us.

By getting to know your friend better you will find that you can perform what used to be time-filled tasks much quicker and begin to save yourself some precious minutes.

There are a number of ways to work with your friend Mac and make the relationship between you both more personal, from changing the desktop background to customising the keyboard shortcuts. By taking the time to get to Mac better, you can create a more harmonious feeling all around.😉

If you're not sure how to go about doing this, there are a number of resources available to help you. This forum has some great video posts to help you out and get you started.

But not everyone prefers to learn the same way - so our staff have been telling me. 

Many of our staff have found it easier to make friends with Mac slowly, getting to know one or two things at a time and then dipping back in for the next tip when they are ready. Some love being able to print a reference and interact with it that way too.

So - here are some quick tips to help get your Mac set up in a PDF form.

Such a great way to introduce the Mac to new users. I love the small short tips that you have created, not overwhelming for new users. I did not know I could change my highlight color, so now it is purple everywhere.

Thank you for teaching me something new.

What a great collection of tips to increase productivity and efficiency on Mac, donngo! As someone who is mainly an iPad user — and definitely not an expert on Mac — I really appreciate these. Thanks so much for sharing these!

Great job! And, who doesn’t love some personalisation and customisation?! 🙌
