Self Ser­vice

get the most from Yosemite

Mac Format - - MAC SOS -

There are still plenty of lit­tle tricks in Yosemite that most peo­ple haven’t yet dis­cov­ered. How many of th­ese did you know about al­ready? When a Spot­light search in­cludes fold­ers in the re­sults, you can high­light one of the fold­ers with the cur­sor keys and then press † to jump to the list of files and fold­ers in­side it. Hit ß+† to jump back to the main list of search re­sults. You can cre­ate re­peat­ing re­minders in Cal­en­dar with just about any in­ter­val – the third Satur­day of the month, say, or ‘ev­ery four years on the last week­end day of March and Oc­to­ber’. Click ‘re­peat’ on a new event and choose Cus­tom. iTunes shows an al­bum art as a thumb­nail at the top of its win­dow, next to the cur­rently play­ing track. If you click this you can in­stantly switch to the MiniPlayer view. Hold­ing down å when you click will leave the main iTunes win­dow open as well. Hold­ing down ç in­stead will give you a ver­sion of the MiniPlayer with larger al­bum art. Yosemite now de­faults to Win­dowsstyle file shar­ing in the Go > Connect to Server dialog within Finder. This means you no longer need to pre­fix a de­vice’s net­work name or IP ad­dress with smb://. When you change your lo­gin pass­word in Yosemite (in Sys­tem Pref­er­ences > Users & Groups) you now have the op­tion of us­ing your iCloud pass­word. One less pass­word to re­mem­ber!

The hour­glass icon switches the MiniPlayer win­dow to an even more mini player.
