Mac Format - - MASTER YOUR MAC - Words: Images:

What­ever you use your Mac for – whether it’s work or plea­sure, whether you spend hours in front of it ev­ery day or only a cou­ple of hours a week, and whether you’ve been us­ing OS X for years or are a rel­a­tively re­cent adopter, the chances are that you’re not us­ing it quite as ef­fi­ciently or ef­fec­tively as you could be.

We’ll show you how to set up your Mac so it’s per­fectly suited to the way you use it and so that you can get the most out of it, whether for work or fun. We’ll help you iron out the wrin­kles that creep into all of our rou­tines, trou­bleshoot­ing prob­lems, cut­ting stress and sav­ing you time in the process.
