Tips for our Mac Friends

Many of our computer tips and tricks are focused on PCs, but that's not our only specialty. Did you know we service Apple products too? We haven't forgotten about you guys...

We've put together a few tips and tricks for our Mac friends out there:

Siri / spotlight - she's not just for iPhones. You can talk and listen to Siri by pressing command + space (or simply clicking on the Siri button on your menu bar)

Screen shots - for your whole screen press shift + command + 3 or shift + command + 4 for a portion of your screen OR shift + command + 4 then space and click on a specific window to capture it

emojis and special characters - hold down control + command + space bar or for accented letters simply hold down the character you wish to place an accent on and select the number with the relevant accent from the pop up menu

split screen - left-click and hold the green maximize button on a window and drag it to either the left or right side of the screen

declutter a cluttered menu bar - hold the command key, click, hold and drag an icon off the menu bar

speed up your start-up by customizing which apps launch at start-up - Go to system preferences, then users and groups then click on login items

customize your keyboard shortcuts - go to system preferences, then keyboard, then application shortcuts and click the + button and follow the prompts
