Your Mac is packed with in­cred­i­ble fea­tures that will ex­cite, de­light and make your life eas­ier. Here you’ll dis­cover nine of the very best.

Some­times you can have too much of a good thing: Our Macs are so good at so many things that some of their best fea­tures re­main un­ex­plored. There’s even a sci­en­tific name for it: the para­dox of choice. Faced with lots of op­tions, we of­ten stick with what we al­ready know.

That’s a shame, be­cause some of these fea­tures could save you stacks of time or sim­ply make your apps more ef­fi­cient. That means it’s a good idea to go all In­di­ana Jones in­side macOS, un­cov­er­ing the valu­able treasures that might oth­er­wise stay hid­den. And un­like In­di­ana Jones, you don’t need to worry about booby traps — noth­ing here is go­ing to send a big boul­der rolling around your sys­tem.

Over the next few pages, you’ll dis­cover three kinds of lesser-known fea­tures of macOS. You’ll learn about short­cuts that en­able you to get things done more quickly, to au­to­mate repet­i­tive tasks, and to elim­i­nate ev­ery­day ir­ri­ta­tions. You’ll un­cover the fea­tures that can de­liver what you want without hav­ing to open a ded­i­cated app. And you’ll dis­cover lit­tle treats that Ap­ple’s devel­op­ers have added sim­ply to make life with a Mac bet­ter and keep you smil­ing. Whether you want to speed up your work­flow or just put an emoji in an email, we’ve got you cov­ered.
