Tai­lor your Mac to suit your work­flow

Tai­lor your Mac in ways that suit your work­flow

Mac users fall into two groups. There are those who set up their desk­top and workspace ex­actly the way they want it to make them as pro­duc­tive as pos­si­ble.

The rest of us leave al­most ev­ery­thing as it is and prom­ise our­selves that one day we’ll get round to set­ting it up prop­erly.

This tu­to­rial is aimed squarely at the sec­ond group, which we’d wager eas­ily makes up the bulk of Mac users. The good news is that there are lots of ways you can con­fig­ure your Mac so it’s eas­ier to nav­i­gate; sim­pler to ac­cess the files, fold­ers and tools you need; and make you much more pro­duc­tive.

We’ve de­scribed tips here that can be car­ried out with­out any ad­di­tional soft­ware or knowl­edge. How­ever, if you want to go fur­ther, there are lots of apps that will al­low you to per­form fur­ther cus­tomi­sa­tion and even au­to­mate pro­cesses so that if, for ex­am­ple, you leave files ly­ing across the desk­top, they are filed away neatly with­out any in­ter­ven­tion from you.
