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.
