Get the most from Yosemite Short­cuts, fea­tures and cus­tomi­sa­tion op­tions. There are lots of lit­tle good­ies tucked away in Yosemite that you prob­a­bly haven’t found yet. Luck­ily for you, I’m go­ing to share with you some of my favourites. You can now view pre­view thumb­nails of files in Finder in all view modes – not just in the Col­umn view. Hit ß+ç+P to turn it on and off. If you don’t like the de­fault ring­tone in FaceTime, re­joice! You can ac­tu­ally cus­tomise it, if you so de­sire. Open up Pref­er­ences and scroll through all the same ring­tones that are in iOS 8 to find one that suits your needs. In most text-based apps you can now hit å+oe and Yosemite will sug­gest the word it thinks you want to type next. I’ve found that it’s not al­ways ter­ri­bly use­ful, but I’ll ad­mit it can be fun to keep pick­ing words and see what sen­tences it gen­er­ates! Click the ‘De­tails’ link at the top of a chat con­ver­sa­tion in Mes­sages and you’ll see thumb­nails of all the images and at­tach­ments sent from ei­ther side dur­ing the whole con­ver­sa­tion. If you don’t use Dash­board, you can dis­able it en­tirely by open­ing Sys­tem Pref­er­ences -> Mis­sion Con­trol and se­lect­ing ‘Off’ from the Dash­board drop down list.
