Mac Basics: The essentials


Learn about the essentials of using a Mac.

The desktop, Finder, Dock, menu bar, Spotlight, and Notification Center

These are six of the most basic elements of your Mac.

Desktop

The desktop is a place where you can put files


and folders. At the top of the desktop is the menu bar, and at the
bottom is the Dock. To learn more about the desktop, please see this
article.

The Finder

The Finder shows you your files and folder in windows, and
can be used to find anything on your Mac. Each Finder window has a
sidebar to help you navigate. You can choose to view windows as
icons, lists, or columns. To get a closer look, use Quick Look. You can
rename, create, and organize folders. For much more information
about using the Finder, please see The Finder.
The Dock

At the bottom of your desktop is the Dock. You'll find icons on the
Dock for the Finder, Launchpad, Mission Control, Safari, Mail,
Contacts, Calendar, Reminders, Notes, Messages, FaceTime, Photo
Booth, iPhoto for importing and managing your photos, iTunes, Mac
App Store (see below) and System Preferences to tweak your system.

You can create stacks to the right of the line in the Dock. Your Mac
comes with a built-in stack for Documents. Click a stack to see what's
in it, then click any file in the stack to open it. To learn more, please
see Stacks.

The right-most item in the Dock is the Trash, which you can use to
delete files and eject mounted volumes. You can move the Dock and
tweak its settings. See The Dock for more information.

The menu bar

Along the top of the screen is the menu bar. Its choices change based
on which application you're using, or if you're in the Finder.

Use status menus on the right side of the menu bar for things like
sound, data and time, Wi-Fi connection, Spotlight, and your online
chat status.

Spotlight

Open Spotlight from the menu bar. Use Spotlight to search for files
such as documents, emails, dates in Calendar, and webpages that
you've visited. Spotlight also does math equations!
Notification Center (OS X Mountain Lion)

Open Notification Center from the menu bar. Use Notification Center
to view notifications from Messages, Calendar, Mail, Reminders,
Twitter, Facebook, and other third-party apps.

Pointing, clicking, and getting around

When you move your mouse or finger on a trackpad, you control a pointer (also known
as a cursor) that moves across your screen. The pointer allows you to select and interact
with the various items on your screen, including selecting files, clicking buttons,
dragging sliders, and so on. Sometimes the pointer may look like a hand, a crosshair, an
I-beam, or another icon, depending on what you're doing and the application you're
using.

For example, if you're using Safari to view this webpage and move the pointer across it,
notice that it turns into an I-beam when you move it over text or a text field. When you
see this, you can usually interact with the text or field below it. When you move the
pointer over a button or link, the pointer turns into a hand, letting you know that you can
click on the item.

Depending on what you're doing and what application you're using, your pointer (far
left) may change appearances

Clicking your mouse button or trackpad button once allows you to select the item that
your pointer is on. In other words, if your pointer is on a file's icon, clicking once will
select it. If the pointer is on a button or link, clicking once will activate it. If your pointer
is on a text field, clicking once highlights the field and allows you to start typing text in
it.

If you want to open a file, folder, or application, click your mouse button or trackpad
twice. This is known as double-clicking. In general, you'll need to double-click items if
you want to open them from a Finder window or the desktop. The exception to this is
opening stuff from the Dockjust click once on an icon in the Dock to open it.

Close, minimize, and zoom windows

Every Finder, application, and document window has three colored buttons (red, yellow,
and green) in the upper left corner.

The red close button closes the window. You can also use the
Command-W keyboard shortcut.

The yellow minimize button (or Command-M keyboard shortcut)


shrinks the window into the Dock. Click the window icon in the Dock
to restore it.

The green zoom button will enlarge the window's size to show as
much content as possible without a scroll bar. Click it again to return
the previous window size.

Launch your apps

Your Mac comes with many applications already installed. In OS X Lion and later, you can
see all your apps by clicking the Launchpad icon in the Dock.

You can also open apps via the Dock, from the Applications folder, with an alias, or by
opening a file associated with the app.

Mac App Store

You can find much more software for your Mac online with the Mac App Store.
Simply click its icon in the Dock to visit the App Store. After purchasing and
downloading, applications are automatically installed in your Applications folder, and
added to the Launchpad. To get updates for Mac App Store applications and OS X
Mountain Lion, simply open App Store and click the Updates tab
For more information about installing, updating, or uninstalling apps, please see Install,
update, and uninstall apps. To learn more about updating OS X Mountain Lion from the
Mac App Store, please see this article.

Update your software

Software Update automatically checks for available updates from Apple when your
computer is connected to the Internet. It takes into account the software you have
installed on your computer, and new updates released by Apple so that it only shows
you relevant updates. You can either wait for Software Update to make its scheduled
check for updates (every week by default), or check for updates at any time by choosing
Software Update from the Apple () menu.

In OS X Mountain Lion, Mac App Store provides software updates via the Updates tab, as
mentioned above. Updates for software that was purchased from the Mac App Store are
also obtained via the Mac App Store's Update button.

You can also manually download updates from Apple Downloads to install the software
yourself. To install software, just double-click the installer file and follow the onscreen
instructions. To learn more, please see this article.

Back up and restore files with Time Machine

Time Machine backs up all your Mac's files to a disk of your choice. If you accidentally
delete a file, you can restore it quickly with Time Machine. You can also restore your
entire system from a Time Machine backup if necessary.

Use Time Machine preferences in System Preferences to configure your options. To learn
more, please see this article.

Mac Basics: About icons in OS X
Every volume (disk), application, file, and folder on
your Mac is represented by an icon.

Icons look like the item that they represent. For example, your hard disk volume icon
(Macintosh HD) looks like a hard drive and a DVD's icon look like a disc. You can change
many of the icons OS X uses if you wish to.

Some of the icons in OS X Mountain Lion

Application icons are all generally unique, so they stand out from one another. Folder
icons help you identify what's inside of them. File icons generally display a document
with an application logo that lets you know what application created it or is the default
to open it.

Changing your user account icon


Your user account icon appears in the Login window when you log in (if your Mac isn't set
to automatically log you in), and is used as your contact portrait unless you change it.
When you first set up your user account, you have the opportunity to select a picture to
use as your icon. You can also change the icon whenever you want, as described below.

You can use one of the included icons, drag in a custom image, or take a snapshot with
your Mac's camera

1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.

2. Click Users & Groups (click Accounts in Mac OS X v10.6).

3. To the left of the "Change Password" button is a pop-up menu that shows your
current account icon. Click it to choose a different icon, or to use your Mac's camera
to take a snapshot to use as an icon. You can also simply drag a picture to the
menu

4. If desired, crop and reposition the new icon.


5. When satisfied, click Done to make the change.

Additional Information

Changing an item's icon

1. Click the volume, application, folder, or file whose icon you want to paste onto
another item.

2. From the File menu, choose Get Info or press Command-I to open the Get Info
window.

3. Click the icon in the upper-left corner of the Get Info window to select it.

4. From the Edit menu, choose Copy or press Command-C.

5. Select the volume, application, folder, or file whose icon you want to replace.

6. From the File menu, choose Get Info or press Command-I.

7. Click the icon in the upper-left corner.

8. From the Edit menu, choose Paste or press Command-V to replace the icon.

Mac Basics: Multi-Touch gestures


Tap, scroll, pinch, and swipe your way through your
Mac with Multi-Touch gestures, directly controlling
whats on your screen in a more fluid, natural, and
intuitive way.

Tip: The Trackpad or Mouse panes of System Preferences contains preview movie clips
for each gesture.

Learn about the Multi-Touch gestures you can use in OS X v10.7 Lion or later and its
applications. These gestures can be performed on a portable Mac's Multi-Touch trackpad,
on a Magic Trackpad, or on a Magic Mouse.
Tip: Click here for a QuickTime movie that demonstrates a number of OS X Multi-Touch
gestures. Click here for a web page containing animations for each gesture.

OS X offers more fluid and realistic gesture responses, including rubber-band scrolling,
page and image zoom, and full-screen swiping. And with the new animations, gestures
look and feel more responsive and natural.

Scrolling note: Scroll bars will only appear when you are scrolling. When not scrolling,
they disappear to not get in the way of your content. You can change this behavior in the
General pane of System Preferences, if desired.

Magic Trackpad Two finger swipe in the direction you want to move
your content. For example, a two finger swipe up will make your
content move up. Two finger swipe left will make your content move
to the left. Tip: Flick your fingers at the end of the swipe to generate
momentum with your scroll. Note: Rubber-banding animations will
spring back content to let you know that you are at the end of your
content.

Magic Mouse One finger swipe in the direction you want to move
your content. For example, one finger swipe up will make your
content move up. One finger swipe left will make your content move
to the left.

Smart Zoom
Magic Trackpad Double-tap with two fingers. Double-tap again to
return. For example, Double-tap on the column of a web page and
Safari will zoom in on that column. Double-tap again to zoom out.

Magic Mouse Double-tap with one finger. Double-tap again to return.

Pinch to zoom Tip: Rubber-banding animations will spring back content to indicate
that you are at your zoom limit.

Pinch out to zoom in. For example, put your thumb and index finger
together and have them touch the surface of your trackpad. Glide
them apart with continuous contact on the surface of your Trackpad.
Pinch in to zoom out. For example, put your thumb and index finger
apart while touching the surface of your trackpad. Glide them toward
each other with continuous contact on the surface of your Trackpad.

Swipe to navigate Web pages in Safari, documents in Preview and more, just like
thumbing a page in a book. Note: If there is horizontal content to scroll, this gesture will
first scrolls to the end of content and then it will move to the next page.

Magic Trackpad A horizontal two finger swipe will show the next or
previous page. Tip: Once you pass the rubber-band threshold, lift
your fingers to change page. Also you can flick your fingers at the end
of the swipe for momentum.

Magic Mouse A horizontal one finger swipe will show the next or
previous page.

Mission Control

Mac Basics: The Finder
The Finder in OS X provides you access to your files
and folders.

Learn about the Finder, how to get around in the Finder, and how to find your files and
folders using the Finder.

(This article applies to OS X Lion and Mountain Lion. For Mac OS X v10.6 information, see
this article instead.)

Finder windows

The Finder allows you to visually access practically everything on your Mac, including
applications, hard disks, files, folders, and DVDs. You can use the Finder to organize all
your files and folders as you want, search for stuff anywhere on your Mac, delete things
you don't want, and more.

To see your files, click the Finder icon in the Dock, then click "All My Files" in the sidebar.

Finder windows include a sidebar on the left side. Items are grouped into categories:
favorites, shared, devicesjust like the Source list in iTunes. The favorites portion
contains favorite links to folders which includes Desktop, Documents, Movies, Music,
Pictures, AirDrop, and the Applications folder. The shared portion contains computers
that are connected to your computer though the network. The device portion contains
mounted and accessible volumes you have, such as a hard disk, USB flash drive,
network volume, DVD, and so forth.
1. Window close, minimize and zoom buttons. To close the window, click
the round, red button in the upper-left corner. If you don't want to
close the window but want it out of your way, click the round, yellow
button to minimize the window to the Dock. If a window is full of
stuff, you can resize it by dragging the lower-right corner to make it
bigger, or click the round, green button to maximize the window's
size.

2. Finder window View buttons:

Icon view - Used to display the contents of your folder as a series


of icons. In Icon view, you can view live icon previews that you
can use to thumb through a multipage document or watch a
QuickTime movie.
List view - Used to display your folder in a spreadsheet-style
manner. Each folder can be expanded by clicking on the
disclosure triangle just to the left of the folder. You can easily
sort by file name, date modified, and so forth. Choose Show
View Options from the View menu to add / remove attribute
columns. You can change the sorting from ascending order to
descending order and back again by clicking on the attribute
column title.

Column view - Used to display the hierarchy of your folders


where each column represents a folder.

Cover Flow view - Used to display the contents of your folder just
like the Cover Flow used in iTunes. You can see live previews of
images, documents and movies, and can thumb through
documents and movies.

3. Action Menu - Quick access to Finder functions for highlighted items,


such as Get Info, Move to Trash, and Services.

4. Item Arrangement button - In any view, you can organize the window
by clicking the item arrangement button and choosing one of the
ways to group items.

5. Search Field - Start typing a word or phrase and Spotlight will search
your Mac for any matches.

6. Right pane - The contents of a selected folder are shown in this pane.

7. Pane edge - Drag to resize.

8. Devices - A device connected to your computer, such as a DVD, USB


device, or your Time Machine backup disk.

9. Sidebar - Items are grouped into categories: Favorites, Shared, and


Devicesthe top portion has Favorites which contains quick access
to All My Files, Applications, Desktop, Documents, Downloads,
Movies, Music, and Pictures.
10. Back / Forward buttons - As you move to different places in the Finder
window, you can use the back button to return one step back and the
forward button to go forward.

The contents of the selected folder or volume appear in the right pane. Depending on
what view your Finder window is set to, this pane may look a little different from ours,
our window above is shown in Icons view. In Icons view, you can navigate by double-
clicking folders to view the contents inside.

Viewing a window as a list or columns

If you'd like to change how folder and volume contents appear in the right pane, click
one of the view buttons in the toolbar (item 2 above). For example, when you click the
list view button, the Finder window transforms into this:

List view enables you to see more content in the window than icons view, and displays
some extra file and folder information, such as the last date the item was modified, the
file size, and what kind of item it is. As with Icons view, you can navigate through your
stuff by simply double-clicking folders until you find what you're looking for.
If you'd rather see your stuff displayed in a more hierarchical fashion, click the Columns
view button. In Columns view, the right pane splits into multiple columns to display your
computer's file and folder organization. Instead of double-clicking folders to see what's
inside, select a folder in any column, click on it once, and its contents will appear in
another column to its right. If you really start digging down deep into your folder, you
can drag the bottom-right corner of the Finder window to expand it and see how many
layers you've traveled.

Getting around

When you click All My Files, all files and folders on your computer that you have created
or downloaded, such as documents, photos, music, and movies are displayed in a
categories list according to the types of files.

The Applications folder contains all the applications installed on your Mac. It also
includes a Utilities folder, with apps that are designed to support different functions of
your Mac.

When you put stuff on your desktop, technically it's stored in your user account's
Desktop folder, even though it appears on your desktop. When you bring music into
iTunes, your music files get stored in the iTunes folder in your user's Music folder.
Likewise, iPhoto stores pictures in the Pictures folder and iMovie stores movies in the
Movies folder. You can get quick access to your folders from any Finder window's sidebar.

The Users folder stores all the content for each user account on your Mac; each user has
a separate Home folder that's named after his or her user account name. The
Documents, Downloads, Movies, Music, and Pictures in the favorites section of the
Sources list are subfolders within your Home folder.
Find stuff fast

You can find stuff quickly using the search field in the Finder window. This field uses the
Spotlight technology to scour the disk volume you select. For more information about
using it, see Spotlight. Combine Cover Flow with Spotlight and youve got an amazingly
powerful search tool. Use your mouse pointer and hover over a file to shuffle through
them visually.

Just start typing in the search field, and Spotlight dynamically displays results in the
Finder window and search suggestions will pop-up below the search field that match
your criteria as you type. You can choose where you want Spotlight to look by clicking on
an item in the header, such as Servers, This Mac, Home, and more, that appears just
below the search field in the Finder window. Spotlight will scour the location you select
and organize its search results by kind.

Search tokens
The Finder includes tokensa smart way to filter your searches. When you select a
suggestion, a token is created. Instantly your search is filtered, and you see only the files
that meet those criteria. You can change the scope of the token by clicking the arrow. If
you want to narrow your search even more, you can use multiple tokens together.

Search for specific file types: For example, if you wanted to find all the JPEG (.jpg)
images on your Mac, type .jpg in the search field, and you'll immediately see results pop
into the window. Click This Mac in the header to find all JPEGs on your entire hard disk.
Not only will Spotlight display thumbnails, small images, of your JPEG images, it'll also
list other things that match your criteria, such as documents that contain the word .jpg
in them. You can then access the file right from that Finder window.

Mac Basics: Desktop

Mac Basics: The Dock


Learn how to add and remove items from the Dock,
and how to use Stacks to unclutter your desktop.

The Dock is the bar of icons that sits at the bottom or side of your screen. It provides
easy access to some of the applications on your Mac (such as Mail, Safari, Contacts, and
QuickTime Player), displays which applications are currently running, and holds windows
in their minimized state. It's also the place to find the Trash (its icon looks like a waste
basket). For your convenience, you can add your own applications, files, and folders to
the Dock too.

To select an item in the Dock, simply click its icon. For example, if you want to listen to
some music, click the iTunes icon (the icon with music notes) to open iTunes. When an
application is running, the Dock displays an illuminated dash beneath the application's
icon. To make any currently running application the active one, click its icon in the Dock
to switch to it (the active application's name appears in the menu bar to the right of the
Apple logo).

As you open applications (or open files to launch applications), their respective icons
appear in the Dock, even if they weren't there originally. That means if you've got a lot
of applications open, your Dock will grow substantially. If you minimize a window (click
the round, yellow button in the upper-left corner of any window), the window gets pulled
down into the Dock and waits until you click this icon to bring up the window again.
The Dock keeps applications on its left side, while Stacks and minimized windows are
kept on its right. If you look closely, you'll see a vertical separator line that separates
them. If you want to rearrange where the icons appear within their line limits, just drag a
docked icon to another location on the Dock and drop it.

For more information about Stacks, see this article.

The separator line in the Dock separates the application icons from Stacks and
minimized windows.

When you quit an application whose icon resides in the Dock (such as Safari or Mail), the
illuminated dash disappears, but the icon remains. When you quit an application whose
icon doesn't reside in the Dock (for example, you just finished playing Chess), its icon
disappears from the Dock.

Tip: Control-click or right-click the a Dock item to see a contextual menu of additional
choices.

Adding and removing Dock items

If you want to add an application to the Dock, click the Launchpad icon in the Dock and
drag the application icon to the Dock; the icons in the Dock will move aside to make
room for the new one. If you want to add a file or folder to the Dock, just drag its icon
from any Finder window (or the desktop) and drop it on the Dock. The resulting icon that
appears in the Dock is actually an alias of the original item (it's kind of a pointer to your
original item). If you drag an application or file onto the Dock, you'll be able to open it
anytime by simply clicking its docked icon. If you drag a folder onto the Dock, a Finder
window of the folder's contents will display when you click the folder icon in the Dock.

To remove an item from the Dock, drag its icon an inch or more off the Dock and wait a
couple seconds, then release; the icon will disappear in a poof of smoke. There are some
icons that you can't remove from the Dock, such as the Trash and the Finder.
Don't worry, you aren't permanently removing the item from your computer; you simply
got rid of its Dock icon. If you want that item back in the Dock, locate the application,
file, or folder in the Finder (or with Spotlight), and drag it back into the Dock.

Tip: You can change where the Dock displays and customize its animation style in Dock preferences. See
Customize the Dock.

Emptying Trash

When you need to delete unwanted files or folders, move them to the Trash and empty
it.

This is what the Trash looks like when it's empty.

This is what the Trash looks like when it's got something in it.

You can drag things to the Trash and then open it to see what's inside. However, when
you tell the Trash to empty itself, the items are deleted. To get rid of unwanted items,
simply drag the item from the Finder and drop it onto the Trash icon in the Dock. The
item will remain in the Trash folder (click the Trash icon to view its contents) until you
either move it out of the Trash (if you decide to keep it) or empty it. From the Finder
menu, choose Empty Trash.
If you're deleting sensitive files, such as electronic banking statements, tax returns,
documents that contain social security numbers or passwords, you can choose to have
your Mac securely empty the Trash: From the Finder menu, choose Secure Empty
Trash. This makes your Mac write over your deleted files, greatly reducing the chances
it could ever be recovered. This process can take some time, depending on what you're
deleting.

Mac Basics: Stacks


Learn how to add and remove folders and files to
Stacks in the Dock.

Stacks

A stack is a Dock item that gives you fast access to a folder. When you click a Stack, the
files and folders within spring from the Dock in a fan or a grid, depending on the number
of items (or the preference you set). OS X starts you off with the Downloads Stack. The
Downloads Stack contains files you download from Safari, Mail, and Messages. You can
create as many Stacks as you wish simply by dragging folders to the right side of your
Dock.

You can customize a Stack by right-clicking or control-clicking on the stack. The


customize menu includes the following options:

Sort by - You can select to have items sorted by Name, Date Added, Date
Modified, Date Created, or Kind.

Display as - Displays the icon in the Dock as the folder's actual icon or as a stack
of icons of the folder contents.

View content as - Determines what Stack type is used when you click the icon:

Fan - Shows folder content in the Fan stack, organized by your sort option.

Grid - Shows folder content in the Grid stack, organized by your sort
option.
List - Shows the folder contents as a list, organized by your sort option.
Each sub-folder opens another list and so on, until you reach the end of the
directory structure. To open an application or document, simply click it.

Automatic - This lets OS X determine the best view content option. When
there are a few items, the Fan stack is used. Once you have loaded your folder
with enough items, OS X changes your view content type to the Grid stack.

Tip: Within the Stack, you can click and drag on the icons in your fan or grid stack to
another folder, the Trash, an external drive icon, your desktop, or other locations.

Fan

Fan Stacks show a portion of your folder content and arrange the icons so that the
closest icon to the Dock is based on the order of the "Sort by" option you have selected.

For example, if you select the "Sort by" option of "Date Added", the Fan Stack expands
showing the icons of the most recently added items closest to the Dock. This is the
default setting of your Downloads folder, making it easy to open, copy, or move your
latest download.

Fan Stack elements


1. Open Finder icon - Click it to open the stack in a Finder window.

2. Items in the Stack - Click an item to open it.

Grid

Grid Stacks show the folder content as a matrix of icons arranged by your "Sort by"
option.

Grid Stacks are scrollable and allow you to navigate folders. You can click a folder in the
Stack to open that folder. An arrow button appears in the upper left of the Stack you just
opened. Click it to go back to the folder you came from. If there are more icons than can
be shown, a scroll bar appears.

Grid Stack elements


1. Return to parent folder arrow - Click it to return to the parent folder.

2. Items in the Stack - Click an item to open it.

3. Open Finder icon - Click it to open the stack in a Finder window.

4. Scroll bar - Present only when there are more icons to show.

Apple ID: How to find your Apple ID


Learn how to find your Apple ID if you have forgotten
it or if you are not sure that you have one.

An Apple ID is your username for everything you do with Apple: shopping the iTunes
store, signing in to iCloud, buying an app, using iMessage, and more. It is best to set up
a single Apple ID and use it with all your Apple Services. Using multiple Apple IDs
simultaneously or over time can be confusing and may cause issues accessing
purchased content or using some services.

Before creating a new Apple ID, find out if you already have one by following these
steps:

1. Go to My Apple ID and click "Find your Apple ID."


2. Complete all the required fields that might be associated with your
Apple ID.

Note: If multiple email addresses have an Apple ID, select your


current or most recently used email address.

3. You'll be presented with two options. Choose Option 1 to request an


email from Apple, or Option 2 to answer the security question you set
up when you first created your Apple ID.

Note: You'll proceed as if you're going to reset your Apple ID


password.
(Email option shown)

4. By following the emailed link or answering the security question,


you'll be presented with the option to reset your Apple ID password.
Your Apple ID is shown in bold.
Apple ID: Changing your Apple ID
password
Learn how to change your Apple ID password.

If you can't remember your Apple ID password, or want to change it, use the password
retrieval process at My Apple ID. Follow these steps to change your Apple ID password:

1. Go to My Apple ID and click "Manage your Apple ID."

2. On the next page, enter your Apple ID name and password and click Sign in.

3. Click Password and Security, and then change your security questions by either
selecting security questions and entering answers, or by creating your own security
questions and answers.
Note: If you have enabled two-step verification, see Frequently asked questions
about two-step verification for Apple ID.

4. Click Change Password.

5. Enter your old password, your new password, and confirm it.
Note: You can change your security questions, birthdate, or add a rescue email
address in the same screen.

Apple ID: Changing the email


address you use for your Apple ID
Learn how to change the email address you use for
your Apple ID.

If your primary email address for your Apple ID ends in @icloud.com,


@me.com, or @mac.com

Apple IDs that use iCloud email addresses (addresses ending in @icloud.com, @me.com,
or @mac.com) cannot be changed to another email address.

If your primary email address for your Apple ID does not end in @icloud.com,
@me.com, or @mac.com

Note: If your Apple ID and your primary email address are currently the same, changing
the primary email address will also change your Apple ID. If your Apple ID and your
primary email address are different, changing your primary email address will not
change your Apple ID.

Follow these steps to change the primary email address for your Apple ID:

1. Go to My Apple ID (appleid.apple.com), click "Manage your Apple ID," and sign in.

2. With the Name, ID, and Email Address drawer selected, click Edit next to Apple ID
and Primary Email Address.

3. Enter your new email address.

Ensure that the email address you enter:


Is one that you regularly use since this will be the primary email for your account

Is a valid email address

Is not already associated with another Apple ID you have

Is not an address that ends in @mac.com. @me.com, or @icloud.com

You will be asked to verify the email address to confirm that you can access it and that it
belongs to you. When you receive the verification email, click the Verify Now link and
sign in using your Apple ID and password to complete the confirmation.

1. In Mail select Mailbox > New Smart Mailbox

2. In the sheet that appears, give the Smart Mailbox an intuitive name.

3. Select a "Contains messages that " pop-up menu option:


all = messages have to meet every one of the criteria you set.

4. Enter in the first criteria for the Smart Mailbox. Criteria can be:

email address of the sender or receiver

Date of the message

in Mailbox or Not in Mailbox, Attachment Name or Type, and so forth

5. Add criteria to refine the Smart Mailbox further by clicking the "+" icon to the
right of the first criteria. Add as many additional criteria attributes as you like.

6. Check "Include messages from Trash / Sent" if you would like to include those

1. In Mail select Mail > Preferences > Rules > Click "Add Rule".

2. In the sheet that appears, give the Rule an intuitive name.

7. Add another action to perform by clicking the "+" icon to the left of the first
action.

8. Click OK to create the Rule.

Tip: If you use iCloud Documents & Data, your rules are available on your other Macs
that also use iCloud Documents & Data.

You can also Edit, Duplicate or Remove an existing Rule.

Securing Mail

You can get a personal certificate (Digital ID) from any number of third-party certificate
authorities that can resolve to your verified email address. Just search for the term
"Digital ID" to find a certificate authority that can issue a certificate for you.

Tip: You can also use the personal certificate (Digital ID) to sign and encrypt messages
in iOS devices as well.
Once imported into your keychain, Mail will automatically securely sign your email
messages (this is not the same as adding your personal signature). A message that is
certificate-signed has its integrity guaranteed, as any alterations to the message will
break the signature.

People you exchange emails with who also certificate-sign their email messages with
their personal certificates (Digital ID), will enable Mail to encrypt messages that you
send and receive with them.

With everything in place, you will see these functions and indicators in Mail:

Your email messages will have a digital signing button. It is checked by default,
enabling your message to be signed. Click it to not sign your message.

= Composing signed message = Composing unsigned message

Once you have exchanged emails with someone who signed a message, you can
encrypt the message. A padlock icon will be present. Locked indicates an encrypted
message and Unlocked indicates an unencrypted message.

= Composing encrypted message = Composting unencrypted message

Received messages that are signed will have a "Security:" field under the
recipients email address containing a check mark icon, the word "Signed" and the
email address of the signer.

Received messages that are encrypted will have in the Security field: A padlock
icon, the word "Encrypted" and the same signed indicator as above.

Important: Do not delete from Keychain your expired personal certificates (Digital ID).
You will need them to decrypt past messages.

content, such as games or instrument simulators. The Web Audio API provides finer-
grained control over the timing of audio playback and allows developers to process
audio sources from HTML5 media elements, create spatial sound effects, and synthesize
and process audio directly in JavaScript.

CSS Filters NEW

CSS filters make it simple to create advanced filter and pixel effects such as blurs and
gradients. CSS filters can vary brightness, adjust hues, invert colors, or convert elements
to sepia or grayscale. Developers can combine filters and animate changes between
them, while tapping into hardware acceleration for fast, smooth rendering.

CSS Animation
CSS animation an open standard that brings a new level of interactivity to the web
lets web designers scale, rotate, fade, and skew web elements to create cutting-edge
websites. Safari was the first web browser to support CSS animation.

CSS Effects

Pioneered by Safari, CSS effects help developers add polish to websites by stylizing
images and photos with eye-catching gradients, precise masks, and stunning reflections
that require only a few lines of code.

CSS3 Web Fonts

CSS3 web fonts allow web designers to create stunning websites using the fonts they
prefer rather than restricting themselves to web-safe fonts. Safari was the first web
browser to automatically recognize websites that use custom fonts, downloading them
as theyre needed.

WebKit the open source rendering engine introduced by Apple powers Safari on OS
X and iOS. WebKit features blazing performance and extensive standards support. And
because its open source, developers can examine WebKit code and contribute to the
community.

Acid 2 Compliance

Designed by the Web Standards Project, Acid tests determine whether a web browser
complies with emerging Internet standards. Acid 2 tests for compatibility with new
features in the HTML, CSS, and PNG standards. Pioneering the standardization effort,
Safari passed Acid 2 on October 27, 2005 two and a half years before any other
popular browser.

Formatted XML Files


When developers download unstyled XML files, Safari presents the information in a clear
document tree format, making it easier to read.

Media Caching

Safari can store audio and video data for web applications that use the HTML5
application cache, allowing for offline media playback and better media performance
when an Internet connection is slow.

HTML5 Geolocation

With Safari support for HTML5 geolocation, you can choose to share your location with
certain websites that use it to provide relevant information, such as maps or nearby
businesses.

HTML5 Sectioning Elements

Support for article, aside, footer, header, hgroup, nav, and section elements allows
developers to create advanced web designs with semantic markup.

HTML5 AJAX History

Support for HTML5 AJAX history allows web developers to build interactive AJAX
applications that update dynamically but still work smoothly with the back and forward
navigation buttons in Safari.

EventSource

Safari supports real-time push notifications from a server. Web applications that use
EventSource can receive faster, more reliable communications from the websites server.

WebSocket

With support for WebSocket, Safari has a speedy, two-way communication link with a
web applications server, so online activities like chatting are faster and require less
bandwidth.

HTML5 Draggable Attribute

Safari makes it easier for developers to create web pages with drag-and-drop user
interfaces for items like photos or images.
HTML5 Forms Validation

Safari can check the information in online forms to ensure that the format is correct
before sending the information to the websites server. If the wrong information is
entered in an input field, Safari can inform you about the error right away.

HTML5 Ruby

Safari can display annotations alongside the main text in a web page, allowing
pronunciation annotations in web pages that use Chinese, Japanese, or Korean
characters.

Support for the Web Open Font Format (WOFF) gives web designers and developers a
wider range of typography options for websites.

ECMA 262 Version 5.1 Support NEW

Safari supports the latest edition of the JavaScript standard, ECMA 262 version 5.1,
enabling the next generation of advanced, interactive web applications.

JSON Support

With native support for JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), Safari allows web applications
that use JSON to run faster and more securely.

Full-Screen Web Pages

With the Full Screen JavaScript API, developers can create immersive web experiences
without a plug-in.
Graphics Acceleration for HTML5 Canvas

HTML5 Canvas elements on web pages take advantage of hardware acceleration,


allowing faster performance for interactive graphics that are rendered natively in the
browser.

CSS Canvas

Using CSS Canvas, web designers can position canvas elements anywhere an image can
be placed using CSS. Safari was the first web browser to support CSS Canvas.

HTML 4.01 Support

Safari supports HTML 4.01, the authoring language that defines the structure and layout
of web documents.

SVG 1.1 Support

By taking advantage of the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) support in Safari, web
developers can create fonts, graphic elements, and animations on the fly that look great
no matter how large or small they are. For example, mapping sites often use SVG to
draw driving directions based on your location and destination.

ICC Color Profile Support

Safari uses advanced color management technology to deliver web images with rich,
accurate color. In fact, it was the first browser to support International Color Consortium
(ICC) profiles and has done so from day one, so the photos and images you see in your
browser stay true to the originals.

Plug-in Support

Plug-ins are add-ons that expand a browsers capabilities. Because it supports the
standard Netscape plug-in architecture, Safari works with the full range of popular
Internet plug-ins, including Flash, Shockwave, and QuickTime.

Scriptable Plug-ins
Thanks to its support for scriptable plug-ins, Safari lets developers create plug-ins that
interact with standard elements on a page. For example, a plug-in could allow you to
customize the appearance of a car. As you add or remove options, the scriptable plug-in
could update the sticker price of the car.

Java Support

With Java support in Safari, you can use web pages that incorporate Java plug-in
content.

XML 1.0 Support

Safari supports LiveConnect to ensure compatibility with popular enterprise web


applications. LiveConnect allows Java and JavaScript to work together to deliver a more
seamless browsing experience.

Error Reporting

Window.onError support allows developers to spot JavaScript errors more easily.


Developers can present users with a customizable message should they encounter an
error on their websites, and window.onError can also report JavaScript errors back to the
server, so that developers can use the error data to debug their code.

HTML5 Offline Support

Web developers can create applications that you can use even when you dont have
access to the Internet. Thanks to HTML5 offline support, web applications that are stored
on your computer are immediately accessible anytime. Along with the application, web
developers can also choose to store the applications data on your system, so you
always have the information you need. Applications and data can be stored in a
traditional SQL-like database serving as an application cache or in the familiar cookie
format.

Acid 3 Compliance
Safari was the first web browser to pass Acid 3. Acid 3 tests a browsers ability to fully
render pages using the web standards used to build dynamic, next-generation websites,
including CSS, JavaScript, XML, and SVG.

HTML5 Canvas

Originally invented by Apple for Dashboard, HTML5 Canvas technology allows web
designers to specify an area in HTML that can be dynamically stylized by a JavaScript
program. Safari was the first web browser to support HTML Canvas, and the standard is
now supported by most popular browsers.

HTML5 Web Notifications NEW

Websites can keep users up to date about breaking news, new messages, and other
alerts. Website notifications appear in the upper-right corner of the screen with other
notifications and in the new Notification Center in Mountain Lion. Extensions enabled in

way web content appears all with powerful web standards like HTML5, CSS3, and
JavaScript. The free Safari Developer Program includes everything you need to start
creating extensions.

HTML5 Extensions

Safari extensions are built with standard web technologies HTML5, CSS3, and
JavaScript. So if you can develop for the web, youll feel right at home writing extensions
for Safari.

Free Digital Certificate

Members of the Safari Developer Program receive a free digital certificate to sign Safari
extensions. This ensures that any updates to your extension come from you and not a
third party.

Safari simplifies extension development with Extension Builder. Instead of manually


entering your scripts, stylesheets, and commands in a complicated text file, you can
select your extension resources visually in Extension Builder, a template thats as easy
to fill out as a form.

Disable Runaway JavaScript Timer

Safari has a built-in runaway timer that alerts users when they land on a site that uses
slow JavaScript code. If you want to examine long-running scripts without interruption,
you can disable the timer by choosing Disable Runaway JavaScript Timer from the

Status-update.

Reader Extensions
Extensions can detect whether Safari Reader is available for a web page and activate
Reader.

Private Browsing Detection NEW

Extensions can now detect when Private Browsing is on, creating new feature
opportunities for extensions that focus on web privacy. Developers of all kinds of
extensions can use this feature to fall back gracefully when their extension attempts to
access features that arent available in Private Browsing mode, such as cookie or data
storage.

Reader Customization NEW

Graphics and Fonts


Back to top

High-Fidelity Graphics and Fonts

Safari brings the web to life by delivering the beautiful graphics, fonts, and effects you
expect from Apple. Your favorite websites have never looked better.

Hardware Acceleration

Hardware acceleration allows Safari to tap into graphics processing units to display
computing-intensive graphics, so standards like HTML5 and CSS3 can deliver rich,
interactive media smoothly in the browser. Safari also accelerates plug-in content.

Graphics Acceleration for HTML5 Canvas

With Safari, HTML5 Canvas elements on web pages take advantage of hardware
acceleration, allowing faster performance for interactive graphics that are rendered
natively in the browser. Safari was the first web browser to support HTML5 Canvas,
which allows developers to specify an HTML image that can be drawn and scripted using
JavaScript.

Anti-Aliased Fonts

Thanks to the anti-aliasing algorithm in Safari, you enjoy crisp, gorgeous fonts. The
algorithm preserves the subtleties of each font while rendering each character with a
crispness that makes your favorite sites a pleasure to read.

CSS Filters NEW

CSS filters make it simple to create advanced filter and pixel effects such as blurs and
gradients. CSS filters can vary brightness, adjust hues, invert colors, or convert elements
to sepia or grayscale. Developers can combine filters and animate changes between
them, while tapping into hardware acceleration for fast, smooth rendering.

Printing Auto-Format
Because Safari prints websites intelligently, your printout matches your expectations.
When you choose Print from the File menu, theres no need to select a specific frame or
section of the site to make certain that your printout contains all of the sites content.
Safari formats the site based on the content and displays a preview for your approval.

Shrink-to-Fit Printing

Working in conjunction with OS X, Safari avoids printing pages with one or two lines of
text by calculating the web page layout and adjusting the print size by up to 10 percent
if doing so will reduce the number of printed pages.

Contextual Letters

In many fonts, letters may change their shape and spacing depending on their position
in a word. For example, in languages like Arabic, a letter used in the middle of a word
may be shaped differently from the same letter used at the end of a word. Safari
recognizes many of these contextual letterforms when rendering different fonts and
languages.

Color Profile Support

The only browser that color-corrects web images, Safari delivers vibrant, accurate color.
Safari has supported International Color Consortium (ICC) profiles from day one, so the
photos and images you see in your browser are as true to the originals as possible.

CSS Animation

An open standard, CSS animation brings a new level of interactivity to the web, allowing
designers to scale, rotate, fade, and skew web elements to create sites with cutting-
edge graphics animation. Safari was the first web browser to support the standard.

CSS Effects
Using CSS effects, a technology pioneered by Safari, developers can stylize images and
photos with eye-catching gradients, precise masks, and stunning reflections, providing
an extra layer of polish to their websites by adding just a few lines of code.

CSS3 Web Fonts

Thanks to CSS3 web fonts, web designers no longer have to settle for web-safe fonts.
Instead, they can choose from a broader set of fonts to design stunning websites. Safari
was the first browser to automatically recognize websites that use custom fonts and
download them as needed.

CSS3 Auto-Hyphenation

Safari allows developers to provide better reading experiences and text layouts with
support for CSS3 auto-hyphenation.

WOFF

Support for the Web Open Font Format (WOFF) gives web designers and developers a
wider range of typography options for websites.

Full-Page Hardware Acceleration NEW

Safari now taps into the graphics processor on your Mac to accelerate entire web pages
through hardware. 2D drawing of text and graphics is even faster and smoother in

remember the name of the site. Safari searches your bookmarks for matching URLs,
website names, and even website content to find the bookmark youre looking for. Safari
displays the results using Cover Flow, so you can flip through your search results as
easily as you flip through album art in iTunes.

Autocomplete Web Addresses


Let Safari complete your web addresses automatically. As you begin typing a web
address in the Smart Search Field, Safari uses your bookmarks and browsing history to
anticipate your destination and fill in the full address for you.

Smart Autocomplete

The Smart Search Field can match text you type against the titles of web pages in your
history and bookmarks. It can also suggest pages when you type any part of a URL, not
just the beginning.

Performance
Back to top

Speculative Loading

Safari loads the documents, scripts, and style information required to view a web page
ahead of time, so theyre ready when you need them.

Full-Page Hardware Acceleration NEW

through hardware. 2D drawing of text and graphics is even faster and smoother in
Safari.

Faster Performance

Safari speeds up performance on the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark by up to 6


percent compared with Safari 5.1.1

Hardware Acceleration

Hardware acceleration allows Safari to tap into graphics processing units to display
computing-intensive graphics and animations, so standards like HTML5 and CSS3 can
deliver rich, interactive media smoothly in the browser.

DNS Prefetching

As you browse the web, Safari finds links on the web pages you visit and looks up their
addresses, a technique called Domain Name System (DNS) prefetching. If you click one
of those links, Safari can quickly load the web page for you, so you can spend more time
browsing and less time waiting.

Advanced Page Caching

Safari stores the web pages you visit in the cache, which can speed up access to pages
youve already viewed. Safari can add additional types of web pages to the cache so
that they load fast when you return to them.

Nitro JavaScript Engine

The Nitro JavaScript engine is an advanced bytecode JavaScript engine that makes web
browsing even faster, and its what powers Safari on OS X and iOS. The Nitro JavaScript
engine takes advantage of the multiple processor cores on your Mac, reducing pauses
caused by memory allocation.

Security and Privacy


Back to top

Sandboxing

All the web content and applications you use in Safari are sandboxed, so they dont have
access to information on your system. If a website contains malicious code intended to
capture personal data or tamper with your computer, sandboxing provides a built-in
blocker that restricts that code from doing harm.

XSS Auditor

Safari protects you against cross-site scripting (XSS). XSS is a type of exploit in which an
attacker tampers with a website, injecting scripts that could capture personal
information from users visiting the website. With the XSS Auditor, Safari can filter these
scripts to protect you from ones that might be malicious.

Phishing Protection

Safari protects you from fraudulent Internet sites. When you visit a suspicious site, Safari
warns you about its suspect nature and prevents the page from loading.
Malware Protection

Safari recognizes websites that harbor malware before you visit them. If Safari identifies
a dangerous page, it warns you about the suspect nature of the site.

geolocation-enabled website, Safari asks you for permission to share your location. You
can choose to have Safari remember your preference for that website for one day, and
you can choose to allow a website to access your location without being prompted
again. You can also choose to deny permission without receiving a prompt. The Privacy
pane of Safari preferences lets you specify how websites can access location services.

Reset Location Preferences


You can clear your location preferences by choosing Reset Safari from the Safari menu
and selecting Reset all location warnings.

Parental Controls: Logs

See which web pages your children have visited. Open Parental Controls in System
Preferences and click Logs to view a list of the sites that were visited and blocked by a
specific user account. You can sort your findings by name or date.

Pop-Up Blocking

By default, Safari intelligently blocks all unprompted pop-up and pop-under windows, so
you can avoid distracting advertisements while you browse.

Badge for HTTPS Sites NEW

Safari makes it easy to spot an HTTPS website. When your connection to a website is
encrypted, Safari shows a gray https badge with a lock icon before the address.

EV Certificates

Safari supports Extended Validation (EV) Certificates, allowing you to easily identify
legitimate websites and businesses. When a website has an Extended Validation
Certificate, the website owners name appears in a green badge. Just click the name to
learn more about the websites security credentials.

Cookie Blocking
Some companies track the cookies generated by the websites you visit, so they can

only from websites you visit.

Web Search Preference NEW

You can now turn off search suggestions in the Smart Search Field. Just select the Web
Search box in Safari Privacy preferences.

Safe Downloads

Safari works with OS X to tag every download with information about when and where it
was downloaded. When you attempt to open a downloaded application, OS X reminds
you where it came from before opening it for the first time, so you can be sure its
legitimate.

Standards-Based Authentication

Authentication technology lets you identify yourself when visiting secure websites. Safari
supports standards-based authentication technologies such as Kerberos single sign-on
and X.509 personal certificates as well as proprietary authentication protocols such as

Safari menu to erase your history, cache, download history, cookies, website icons,
names and passwords, AutoFill information, and location services preferences, as well as
Google, Yahoo!, and Bing search terms, from the computer.
Empty Cache

When you surf the Internet, Safari automatically caches web pages and images in
temporary storage for easy repeat access and faster page loads. Safari clears the stored
files when you choose Empty Cache from the Safari menu.

Private AutoFill

Safari lets you fill out forms quickly while keeping your personal information private.
When you fill out a web form, websites can access the information you enter, even
before you submit it. Safari prevents this by detecting web forms and presenting a drop-
down field, letting you choose to use AutoFill to complete the form with information from
Contacts. No information is added to web forms until you choose to use AutoFill.

Private Browsing

When you turn on Private Browsing, Safari doesnt remember the pages you visit, your
search history, or your AutoFill information. Private Browsing also prevents the websites
you visit from being able to access cookies and other information already stored on your
computer. Private Browsing automatically turns on Do Not Track, and also turns off
iCloud Tabs so the web pages you visit wont be visible on other devices.

Parental Controls: Custom Filter

Safari can work with parental controls in OS X to quickly review websites before they
load to determine if theyre suitable for kids. If sites are deemed unsuitable, OS X blocks
them from view. You can further protect children from potentially inappropriate web
content by adding sites to the Never Allow list in Parental Controls in System
Preferences.

Secure Encryption

To prevent eavesdropping, forgery, and digital tampering, Safari uses encryption


technology to secure your web communications. Safari supports the very latest security
standards, including SSL versions 2 and 3, Transport Layer Security (TLS), 40- and 128-
bit SSL encryption, and signed Java applications.

iCloud Tabs NEW

Pick up your browsing right where you left off, whether youre on your Mac, iPad, iPhone,
or iPod touch.2 iCloud makes the last web pages you viewed available on all your
devices. For example, you can start browsing a web page on your iPad and continue on
your Mac.

iCloud Tabs Button NEW

Click the iCloud Tabs button in the Safari toolbar to see the web pages you last viewed
on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch or on another Mac. Clicking a web page opens it in
Safari on your Mac.

Encrypted for Privacy NEW

The URLs of the web pages you visit are encrypted for privacy when they are pushed
between your Mac and iCloud.

Privacy Preference NEW


When you use Private Browsing, Safari doesnt push the web pages you visit to iCloud,
so they wont be visible on other devices.

User Interface and Appearance


Back to top

Full Screen

Safari lets you immerse yourself in the web. Full-screen Safari uses every available pixel,
making browsing on smaller screens more practical than ever. You can take multiple
Safari windows full screen, while keeping some windows smaller. You can also adjust the
width of web content in full-screen Safari. When you take Safari and other apps full
screen, Multi-Touch gestures let you move quickly between your full-screen apps,
desktop spaces, and Dashboard.

Elegant User Interface

Safari delivers a clean, sleek interface that puts the focus on the web instead of the
browser. You see a scroll bar only when you need one. The progress indicator is
conveniently located in the web address field. And by default, you see no status bar,
giving you more room to browse and view the web.

Tap to Zoom

When you double-tap with two fingers in Safari, web page text and graphics scale up
smoothly and text remains razor sharp. Tap again to return to the original size.

Multi-Touch Gestures
Safari brings more Multi-Touch technology to the web, letting you use intuitive gestures.
You can scroll, tap, pinch, and swipe for fluid, responsive browsing.

Touch Tabs NEW

Use Multi-Touch gestures to see and switch seamlessly between your tabs.

Momentum Scrolling

With Safari, you can use gestures to scroll up and down a web page. When you reach the
top or bottom of the page, momentum scrolling makes Safari feel even more responsive.

Pinch to Zoom

Pinch out to zoom text and graphics seamlessly on a web page, as you do with Safari on
iPad.

Full-Page Zoom

With full-page zoom, its easy to take a closer look at small print on your favorite sites.
Shrink or magnify the contents of web pages using a trackpad. Images, videos, and
other page elements adjust while your text remains razor sharp, keeping your page
layout consistent as you zoom.

Customizable Toolbar

Personalize your Safari toolbar, so you see only the buttons you use. Choose Customize
Toolbar from the View menu and drag buttons into your toolbar. You can also elect to
show or hide your bookmarks bar, status bar, and toolbar.

Inline Progress Indicator


Safari was the first browser to move the progress indicator into the address field, making
it more visible and freeing up space for web content.

Resizable Text Fields

Whether youre adding a comment to a friends photo or updating your status message,
make more room for everything you want to say by changing the size of a websites text
fields. Just drag the bottom-right corner of a text entry field to expand it on the page.

Default Font Preference

Change the default font Safari uses to display text on your web pages. In Safari
preferences, click Appearance and select the fonts you like. Safari renders text with your
chosen fonts unless you visit a site written with specific CSS rules.

Swipe to Navigate

You can navigate back and forward in Safari using gestures. A swipe to the right doesnt
just load your previous web page; the current page slides smoothly out of the Safari
window. Swipe to the left to navigate to the next page.

Mac Basics: Time Machine


Learn how to set up Time Machine to perform
backups, how to restore items, how to use System
Restore to return your entire Mac to a specific date,
how to migrate backups to a new Mac, and more.

Time Machine is the built-in backup that works with your Mac and an external drive (sold
separately) or AirPort Time Capsule. Connect the drive, tell Time Machine to use it, and
relax. Time Machine automatically backs up your entire Mac, including system files,
applications, accounts, preferences, email messages, music, photos, movies, and
documents. But what makes Time Machine different from other backup applications is
that it not only keeps a spare copy of every file, it remembers how your system looked
on any given dayso you can revisit your Mac as it appeared in the past. Time Machine
keeps hourly backups for the past 24 hours, daily backups for the past month, and
weekly backups until your backup drive is full.

OS X Lion lets you:


Encrypt your Time Machine backup drive using FileVault 2.

OS X Mountain Lion lets you:

Encrypt AirPort Time Capsule backups and network backups using


FileVault 2.

Select multiple backup destinations that Time Machine will rotate


through for backup cycles.

Setting up Time Machine backups using an external drive

Setting up Time Machine is as easy as connecting an external drive to your Mac via
Thunderbolt, FireWire or USB.

If you haven't specified a Time Machine backup device and you connect an external
drive, Time Machine will display a dialog similar to this one:
Note: The "My Backup (489.5 GB)" text in the above example, will be replaced with the
name and capacity of the external drive you connect.

Click "Use as Backup Disk" to confirm you want to use the drive for Time Machine
backups. Time Machine preferences will then open with this drive selected as your
backup destination.

Check "Encrypt Backup Disk" if you want to encrypt the Time Machine backup external
drive using FileVault 2 (OS X Lion and later).

That's all you have to do for Time Machine to automatically backup your Mac. The Time
Machine pane of System Preferences will look similar to this.
Note: The "My Backup" and drive capacity in the above example will be replaced with
the name and capacity of the external drive you configured as your Time Machine
backup.

Manually preparing a new disk for Time Machine

1. If you want to erase a disk before using it with Time Machine, follow these steps:

2. Open Disk Utility (located in the Utilities folder).

3. Connect the disk if it isn't already attached.

4. In the left side of the Disk Utility window, select the disk you want to use with
Time Machine.

5. Optional: If you want to partition the disk, click the Partition tab and select a
layout. Make sure "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" is selected in the Format menu
for the partition that will be used for backups. Click Apply.

6. Click the Erase tab.


7. Optional: If you want to securely erase the disk, click Security Options to
configure, then click OK.

8. Click Erase.

9. After erasing, open Time Machine preferences in System Preferences and


configure as described in the section above.

About the first backup to an external drive

You may want to set up Time Machine in the evening so that the initial backup can be
done overnight because it may take a while depending on the size of your OS X volume.
You should not interrupt the initial backup. You can continue to use your Mac while Time
Machine backs up.

Once the initial backup is completed, Time Machine performs subsequent hourly
backups of only the files that have changed on your Mac since the last backup (as long
as your backup drive is connected).

Tip: You can manually initiate a Time Machine backup cycle at any time by choosing
Back up Now from the Time Machine menu, even if you have Time Machine
preferences set to off.

Manually selecting a backup drive

You can manually select a backup drive in the Time Machine pane of System
Preferences.

1. Choose Time Machine menu > Open Time Machine Preferences

2. If the padlock in the lower left is locked, click it and enter an administrator name
and password to unlock.

3. Click Select Disk.

4. Select a drive, then click Use Disk.

Note: In OS X Mountain Lion and later, if a backup device is already selected, you will be
prompted to click one of these options:

Cancel - This will cancel the process and leave your Time Machine settings as is.

Replace (current drive name) - Time Machine will stop using the current drive and
replace it with the new selection.
Use Both - Time Machine will cycle backups through multiple backup devices. See
the "Setting up an additional Time Machine backup (OS X Mountain Lion or later)"
below for details.

Important: Every available drive that can be used to store backups is listed. If youve
partitioned a drive, the available partitions are listed. Time Machine cant back up to an
external drive that's connected to an AirPort Extreme or a drive formatted for Microsoft
Windows (NTFS or FAT format). If you select an NTFS or FAT-formatted drive, Time
Machine prompts you to reformat the drive. Choose a different drive or reformat the
drive in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format. Because reformatting erases any files on
the drive, only do this if you no longer need the files or if you have copies of them on a
different drive.

The most common format for a Time Machine backup drive is Mac OS Extended
(Journaled) format, but Time Machine also supports Mac OS Extended (Case sensitive,
Journaled) and XSan formats.

If the drive is partitioned using the Master Boot Record (MBR) partition type, some
partitions may not be available for use with Time Machine. The GUID Partition Table
(GPT) type is recommended.

Time Machine works best if you use your backup drive only for Time Machine backups. If
you keep files on your backup drive, Time Machine wont backup those files and the
space available for Time Machine backups will be reduced.

OS X Mountain Lion, OS X Lion v10.7.2 and later: Starting from the recovery partition of
a Time Machine backup drive

Hold down the Option key at startup to boot into the startup manager. Select the
Recovery system of the Time Machine backup to start from. Once started, you will have
all of the functionality of Recovery.

Setting up Time Machine for backups using AirPort Time Capsule

If you have an AirPort Time Capsule on your home network, you can use it as your Time
Machine backup device. See the documentation that came with your AirPort Time
Capsule for information about setting it up on your home network.

Once your AirPort Time Capsule has been configured for your home network, open Time
Machine preferences and click "Select Disk".

From the sheet that appears, select the AirPort Time Capsule you would like to use for
backup.
Tip: Click "Set up Other Time Capsule" to open your AirPort utility to setup and configure
your AirPort Time Capsule. Enter the name and password or password only that you set
for your AirPort Time Capsule via the Airport Utility.

OS X Mountain Lion or later: Check "Encrypt backups" to use FileVault 2 to encrypt


the backup on the AirPort Time Capsule.

About the first back up to AirPort Time Capsule

The initial backup may be faster if you leave your computer in the same room as the
AirPort Time Capsule, or use an Ethernet cable to connect your Mac to one of the
Ethernet ports on the AirPort Time Capsule. You should not interrupt the initial backup.
You can continue to use your Mac while Time Machine backs up. For more information,
see this article.

Once the initial backup is completed, Time Machine performs subsequent hourly
backups of only the files that have changed on your Mac since the last backup (as long
as your Mac is awake and the backup drive is connected).

Tip: You can manually initiate a Time Machine backup cycle by selecting "Back up Now"
from the Time Machine menu, even if you have Time Machine preferences set to off.

Setting up an additional Time Machine backup (OS X Mountain Lion)

Time Machine in OS X Mountain Lion allows you to add an additional Time Machine
backup destination to your existing Time Machine backup destination list. You can use
this to have an extra Time Machine backup and or have another Time Machine backup at
another location. For example, you can have a Time Machine backup destination at
home and a backup destination at work.

Simply add an external drive or AirPort Time Capsule using the Time Machine pane of
System Preferences with the steps detailed above.

Once configured, Time Machine will rotate backup cycles across the configured Time
Machine backup destinations. If a destination cannot be found at the time of the backup
cycle, Time Machine will skip that backup destination. Time Machine will try the next
backup destination on the list until it can find a backup destination to interact with and
complete a backup.

Selecting items to exclude from the backup

In Time Machine preferences you can click the Options button to adjust settings. A sheet
similar to this appears when you click Options:
This sheet allows you to exclude files, folders, or entire volumes from being backed up.
You might want to do this to avoid filling up your backup drive.

Tip: If you regularly modify a very large file (greater than 1 GB, for example), you might
want to add that specific file to the "Exclude these items from backups" list. Time
Machine backs up modified files, regardless of how much or how little the file changed
from the previous backup.

The "Notify after old backups are deleted" option tells Time Machine to warn you when
older backups are removed from your backup drive to make space for more recent
backups.

Restoring data from Time Machine backups

With Time Machine you can go "back in time" to restore files, versions of files, or your
entire system. Make sure your backup drive is connected and mounted (if not, Time
Machine will alert you that "Your Time Machine backup disk can't be found."

Restoring specific files or folders

Choose Enter Time Machine from the Time Machine menu and the restore interface
appears. You can literally see your windows as they appeared "back in time."
You can use the timeline on the right side of the window to reach a certain point back in
time (the timeline shows the times of all backups on your backup drive). If you dont
know exactly when you deleted or changed a file, you can use the back arrow to let Time
Machine automatically travel through time to show you when that folder last changed.

Note: Dates in pink indicate the data resides on your Time Machine backup device.
Dates in white indicate the data resides on your Mac. In OS X Mountain Lion and Lion,
portable Macs have the feature of local snapshots. See this article for details.

You can also perform a Spotlight search in the Time Machine Finder Window search field
to find a file. Simply type the Spotlight search field and use the back arrow to have Time
Machine search through your backups to find what you are looking for.

Before you restore a file, you can also use Quick Look to preview a file to make sure its
the one you want. Highlight the file and press the Space Bar to bring up a quick look.

To restore, select the file/folder and click the "Restore" button. The file will automatically
be copied to the desktop or appropriate folder. If the file you are restoring has another
file in the same location with the same name, you will be prompted to choose which file
to keep or keep both.

Restoring your entire system from a backup

If you are restoring a backup made by a Mac to the same Mac

With your backup drive connected, start up your Mac from the Recovery system
(Command-R at startup) or Mac OS X v10.6 installation disc. Then use the "Restore From
Time Machine Backup" utility.

Note: If "You can't restore this backup because it was created by a different model of
Mac" appears when restoring a backup that was made on a different Mac, follow the
onscreen instructions.

If you are restoring a backup made by one Mac to a completely different Mac

Important: If the backup you are about to restore is from a completely different Mac,
use the Migration Assistant to transfer data from the backup, as described in the next
section.

Migrating a Time Machine backup to a new Mac

When you buy a new Mac, you can transfer all of your applications, files, settings, and
other information from a Time Machine backup you've already made.

You will be asked if you want to transfer files when you start up your new Mac for the
first time. Or, you can use the Migration Assistant (located in Applications/Utilities).

After Migration Assistant completes the transfer and you select your existing Time
Machine backup drive, you will be prompted with "Inherit Backup History". Once selected
you will be able to continue to use your existing Time Machine backup on your new Mac.

Additional Information

Backup drive fills up

As your backup drive begins to fill up to its capacity, Time Machine intelligently deletes
the oldest backups to make room for newer ones (and will alert you if the "Notify after
old backups are deleted" option is selected in Time Machine preferences).

If your backup disk is filling up often causing your oldest available backups to be erased
sooner than you might want, consider the following options:

Use an additional drives for your backups or transfer your backups to a new,
larger drive as detailed above. When you connect a new drive for the first time, use
Time Machine preferences to select the drive. Tip: You can also browse the original
backup drive for past backups by using "Browse other Time Machine Disks"--to see
this choice, hold the Option key then click the Time Machine menu in the Finder (to
see the menu, "Show Time Machine status in the menu bar" must be selected in
Time Machine preferences.

Reduce the amount of information being backed up by adding to the "Exclude


these items from backups" list in Time Machine preferences, as mentioned above.
Your backup drive will fill up less often.

Delete file(s) that are no longer needed (such as from your desktop, Documents
folder, or other Home folder locations), so they will no longer be backed up. You can
also enter the Time Machine restore interface and find files that can be removed
from the backup drive itself to conserve space. To do this, select the file(s) and from
the Action pop-up menu (gear icon) in the Time Machine Finder window choose
"Delete All Backups of...". Be sure to only delete files you are sure you won't need or
want to restore later.

Mac Basics: Font Book


The Font Book application lets you install, remove,
view, organize, validate, enable, and disable fonts.
Fonts are styles of type that your computer uses to
display and print text. OS X comes with many
preinstalled fonts.

Using Font Book

Font Book is located in the Applications folder (in the Finder, choose Go >
Applications). To manage or view fonts, open Font Book, or double-click a
font file.

In Font Book, the Collection column on the left shows installed fonts by category; click a
different category to see different kinds of fonts, or click "All Fonts" for a list of all
installed fonts. The Font column in the middle displays all fonts within the selected
collection. The preview pane on the right side displays a sample of characters in the
selected font.
These are some other things you can do with Font Book:

Collapse All | Expand All

Preview and install fonts

To preview a new font that you downloaded or have on a disc, double-click the font file.
Font Book will display a sample of the font. You can change the typeface (if others are
available) via the pop-up menu at the top of the preview window.

If you want to install the font so that it can be used in documents you create or view,
click the "Install Font" button that appears below the preview of the font.
You can also use Font Book to install one or more fonts. Choose Add Fonts from the File
menu, select the font or a folder containing multiple fonts, then click Open to install the
font(s).

When Font Book installs a font, it will automatically validate the font and let you know if
it detects any issue with the font file. See the "Validating fonts" section in this article for
more information.

By default, Font Book will install fonts in a location where the font will only be available
to the current user account. If you'd prefer to install fonts in a location where they will be
available to all users on the computer, choose Font Book > Preferences, then choose
"Computer" from the "Default Install Location" pop-up menu.

Remove a font with Font Book

To remove a font using Font Book, select All Fonts in the Collection column, select the
name of the font in the Font column, then choose File > Remove "Font Name" Family.
Font Book will move those font files into the Trash. Note: System fonts cannot be
removed.

View fonts in Font Book


There are several different ways to view fonts in Font Book. These different options help
you decide which font you'd like to use for the project you are working on.

The Preview menu contains three options that affect how the preview is displayed:

Sample (default option) displays the font using letters and numbers,
or symbols when previewing a symbol font.

Repertoire displays all characters available in the font. You may


need to use the scroll bar or zoom slider bar on the right side of the
window to see all of the available characters.

Custom allows you to type in a custom phrase or selection of


characters, which will be used to display the preview each time you
select a font.

Note: If you don't see a preview in the Font column, choose Show Preview and Hide
Font Info from the Preview menu.

Organize fonts as collections

When working with fonts, you may discover that you use certain fonts frequently, but
rarely use others. To make it easier to find the font you are looking for, you can organize
your fonts into collections.

1. From the Font Book File menu, choose New Collection.

2. Type in a name for the new collection.

3. Click "All Fonts" in the Collection column.

4. Drag the fonts that you want from the Font column onto the name of
your new collection in the Collection column.

In this example, some fonts are being dragged to a new collection named "Favorites":
Smart Collections (OS X Mountain Lion)

Similar to how you can create a smart mailbox in Mail, you can create a Smart Collection
in Font Book that will automatically include fonts which meet your criteria. One Smart
Collection is already included, called Fixed Width. Click it to see all the fixed width fonts
installed.

To create a new Smart Collection:

1. Choose File > New Smart Collection.

2. Using the pop-up menus, define the criteria for which fonts should
appear in this collection. You can include or exclude fonts based on
their family name, style name, PostScript name, kind, languages, and
design style.

3. To add more criteria, click the "+" button (or remove with the ""
button).

4. Give your collection a name, then click the OK button when finished.

To modify a Smart Collection, select it, then choose File > Edit Smart Collection.

Using collections in apps

In applications that use the standard OS X Fonts panel, such as Mail, Pages, and TextEdit,
you click the name of a collection to see only the fonts in that collection:
Disable and enable specific fonts

In situations where you'd like to prevent a font from being available in applications, but
you don't want to completely remove the font from your Mac, you can use Font Book to
disable the font.

1. In Font Book, click "All Fonts" in the Collection column.

2. Click the name of the font in the Font column.

3. Choose Disable "Font Name" Family from the Edit menu.

Fonts that have been disabled have their names displayed in gray text with the word
"Off" appearing next to the font's name.

Mac Basics: Font Book
The Font Book application lets you install, remove,
view, organize, validate, enable, and disable fonts.
Fonts are styles of type that your computer uses to
display and print text. OS X comes with many
preinstalled fonts.

Using Font Book

Font Book is located in the Applications folder (in the Finder, choose Go >
Applications). To manage or view fonts, open Font Book, or double-click a
font file.

In Font Book, the Collection column on the left shows installed fonts by category; click a
different category to see different kinds of fonts, or click "All Fonts" for a list of all
installed fonts. The Font column in the middle displays all fonts within the selected
collection. The preview pane on the right side displays a sample of characters in the
selected font.
These are some other things you can do with Font Book:

Collapse All | Expand All

Preview and install fonts

To preview a new font that you downloaded or have on a disc, double-click the font file.
Font Book will display a sample of the font. You can change the typeface (if others are
available) via the pop-up menu at the top of the preview window.

If you want to install the font so that it can be used in documents you create or view,
click the "Install Font" button that appears below the preview of the font.

You can also use Font Book to install one or more fonts. Choose Add Fonts from the File
menu, select the font or a folder containing multiple fonts, then click Open to install the
font(s).

When Font Book installs a font, it will automatically validate the font and let you know if
it detects any issue with the font file. See the "Validating fonts" section in this article for
more information.

By default, Font Book will install fonts in a location where the font will only be available
to the current user account. If you'd prefer to install fonts in a location where they will be
available to all users on the computer, choose Font Book > Preferences, then choose
"Computer" from the "Default Install Location" pop-up menu.

Remove a font with Font Book

To remove a font using Font Book, select All Fonts in the Collection column, select the
name of the font in the Font column, then choose File > Remove "Font Name" Family.
Font Book will move those font files into the Trash. Note: System fonts cannot be
removed.

View fonts in Font Book

There are several different ways to view fonts in Font Book. These different options help
you decide which font you'd like to use for the project you are working on.

The Preview menu contains three options that affect how the preview is displayed:

Sample (default option) displays the font using letters and numbers,
or symbols when previewing a symbol font.

Repertoire displays all characters available in the font. You may


need to use the scroll bar or zoom slider bar on the right side of the
window to see all of the available characters.

Custom allows you to type in a custom phrase or selection of


characters, which will be used to display the preview each time you
select a font.

Note: If you don't see a preview in the Font column, choose Show Preview and Hide
Font Info from the Preview menu.

Organize fonts as collections

When working with fonts, you may discover that you use certain fonts frequently, but
rarely use others. To make it easier to find the font you are looking for, you can organize
your fonts into collections.

1. From the Font Book File menu, choose New Collection.

2. Type in a name for the new collection.


3. Click "All Fonts" in the Collection column.

4. Drag the fonts that you want from the Font column onto the name of
your new collection in the Collection column.

In this example, some fonts are being dragged to a new collection named "Favorites":

Smart Collections (OS X Mountain Lion)

Similar to how you can create a smart mailbox in Mail, you can create a Smart Collection
in Font Book that will automatically include fonts which meet your criteria. One Smart
Collection is already included, called Fixed Width. Click it to see all the fixed width fonts
installed.

To create a new Smart Collection:

1. Choose File > New Smart Collection.

2. Using the pop-up menus, define the criteria for which fonts should
appear in this collection. You can include or exclude fonts based on
their family name, style name, PostScript name, kind, languages, and
design style.

3. To add more criteria, click the "+" button (or remove with the ""
button).

4. Give your collection a name, then click the OK button when finished.

To modify a Smart Collection, select it, then choose File > Edit Smart Collection.

Using collections in apps

In applications that use the standard OS X Fonts panel, such as Mail, Pages, and TextEdit,
you click the name of a collection to see only the fonts in that collection:
Disable and enable specific fonts

In situations where you'd like to prevent a font from being available in applications, but
you don't want to completely remove the font from your Mac, you can use Font Book to
disable the font.

1. In Font Book, click "All Fonts" in the Collection column.

2. Click the name of the font in the Font column.

3. Choose Disable "Font Name" Family from the Edit menu.

Fonts that have been disabled have their names displayed in gray text with the word
"Off" appearing next to the font's name.

Note: System fonts cannot be disabled.

If you'd like to enable a font that was previously disabled, click the name of the font
from the Fonts column, then choose Enable "Font Name" Family from the Edit menu.
You can also disable or enable all fonts in a collection: Click the name of the collection in
the Collection column, then choose Disable "Collection Name" or Enable "Collection
Name" from the Edit menu.

Mac Basics: QuickTime Player


QuickTime Player lets you play back your media using
an uncluttered interface with controls that fade out
when theyre not needed.

Learn about QuickTime Player's media sharing, flexible recording capabilities, and simple
media trimming and combining features.

How to use QuickTime Player to play media files on your Mac

QuickTime Player is a great application for playing media content, including HD (high
definition) video in OS X. QuickTime Player supports many modern codecs and file
formats, so simply double-click your media file in the Finder and it will open in QuickTime
Player. If a media file doesn't automatically open in QuickTime Player by double-clicking
it, you can choose File > Open File, browse to the file's location, and select it.
Additionally, you can open a streaming media file (or event) by clicking the File menu
and then choosing Open Location and entering the Internet address (the URL) for the
movie file.
The playback controls in QuickTime Player work simply with Rewind and Fast Forward
buttons, and with the Play button handling both playback and stopping.

The timeline at the very bottom of the player shows your current viewing progress and
can be dragged (left or right) to move to a desired position or time. This is helpful for
moving through lengthy media files, especially when searching for a specific moment or
event. The total playback time remaining is listed on the bottom-right corner of the
playback controls when the controls are open. If you want to see the lenght of the clip,
just click on the time remaining.

Note that the controls fade out when theyre not needed.

Full-screen in QuickTime

QuickTime Player use the full-screen features built-in to OS X to give you maximum
screen viewing space of your movies or clips. To make QuickTime Player fill your entire
screen, click the full-screen button, which is located on the top-right of the playback
controls or in the top-right of the QuickTime Player window with two arrows pointing
outwards. While you are in full screen you can switch to another app without leaving full-
screen by swiping left or right using three fingers. The menu bar will appear if you move
the pointer to the top of the screen. From there, you can click the View menu and select
one of several scaling modes to find the perfect fit for you display. To make the screen
go back to its original size, simply click the Full Screen button once again or press
Escape (esc).

Supported media file formats

QuickTime Player supports a wide variety of popular audio and video file formats and
codecs. To learn more, see Media formats supported by QuickTime Player.

About audio and movie recording in QuickTime Player

You can make a movie using QuickTime Player and the camera in your Mac by clicking
the File menu and choosing New Movie Recording. When the recording interface
appears, the FaceTime or iSight camera becomes active (a green light appears by your
Mac's built-in camera). Simply press the circular record button once to start or stop your
recording.

Click the triangle icon to display a menu of additional options, such as whether to use
your Mac's built-in camera or an external camera you've connected to your Mac, and
what the finished quality of your recording should be.

To make an audio-only recording, simply choose New Audio Recording from the File
menu. Press the circular record button once to start or stop your recording. You will
notice that the current running file size is displayed on the bottom right of the controls
while you're recording; this changes to the total elapsed time when you stop recording.
The sound meter (located at the bottom of the controls) makes it easy to ensure your
volume level is consistent, and is helpful for making sure you're sitting an appropriate
distance from the microphone. About 21 inches of distance between you and the
microphone is a good place to start.

Clicking the triangle gives you additional options, such as letting you choose whether to
use the built-in microphone on your Mac, an external microphone you've connected to
your Mac, a microphone from a connected Apple display, and lets you adjust the finished
quality of your recording.

Tip: Changing the quality from High to Maximum will produce a very high-quality
uncompressed movie file. However, uncompressed audio files can use large amounts of
disk space.

Export audio only using QuickTime Player

QuickTime Player gives you the option of exporting and sharing only the audio portion of
your video. To export only the audio portion of your video, open your video in QuickTime
Player. Choose Export from the File menu. Type a name in the Export As field. Then
from the Format pop-up menu, choose Audio Only and click Export.
Record your screen

You can use QuickTime Player to make a video recording of your screen or just a region
of your screen and save it as a movie file for later viewing. This can be helpful for
showing others how to perform a task, workflow, or for training.

Choose File > New Screen Recording. To start recording what's occurring on your
Mac's screen, click the round record button.

You can record some of all of the screen:

If you want to record the entire screen, click anywhere on the screen
to start recording.

To record just a smaller portion of the of the screen, drag your pointer
to select the region of the screen you want to record, and then click
the Start Recording button within the region.

To stop recording, click the stop button in the menu bar, or press the Command-Control-
Escape key combination (all at once) on the keyboard.

Clicking the triangle icon gives you additional options, such as letting you choose
whether to use the built-in microphone on your Mac, an external microphone you've
connected to your Mac, a microphone from a connected Apple display, or the option to
simply use no microphone at all. The triangle also allows you to adjust the finished
quality of your screen recording, select whether or not your mouse clicks are shown
during the recording (the pointer is highlighted when you click), and to select what
location (on your Mac) to save your screen recording when finished.
Tip: Changing the quality from Medium to High will result in higher-quality movie file
with a larger file size.

Trim media files

To quickly edit media files:

1. Open the file in QuickTime Player.

2. Choose Edit > Trim. The trimming bar appears.

Note: In OS X Lion, you can also click the arrow icon ( ) that is to
the right of the Fast Forward button, then in the menu that opens,
choose Trim.

3. To select the portion of the recording you want to keep, drag the
yellow trimming bar handles to the left and right as desired.

4. When you are ready, simply click Trim. The unwanted footage outside
the the yellow trimming bar is removed.
Rotate or flip clips

If you have a clip that is upside down or sideways, you can rotate or flip it to correct it.
To rotate or flip a clip, open them in QuickTime player. Then from the Edit menu choose
Rotate Left, Rotate Right, Flip Horizontal, or Flip Vertical depending on the rotation or flip
need to correct the clip.

Sharing your media files

You can easily share your media files with others via email, chat, Facebook, YouTube,
Vimeo, Flickr, and other ways.

1. Double-click the media file that you want to share if it's not open.

2. Click the arrow icon ( ) that is to the right of the Fast Forward
button.

3. In the menu that opens, choose Email, Message, AirDrop, Facebook,


YouTube, Vimeo, or Flickr.

Menu choices in OS X Mountain Lion

Notes

OS X Lion: The choices in OS X Lion v10.7.5 are iTunes, YouTube,


Vimeo, Flickr, Facebook, Mail, and Trim. If you choose iTunes,
you'll be asked if you want to save your file for best viewing on
an iPhone or iPod, an Apple TV, or a computer, and then save the
file in your iTunes library for easy syncing.
OS X Mountain Lion tip: If you want to export to iTunes, you can
choose File > Export To > iTunes.

If you choose AirDrop, you can share to another nearby Mac that
has AirDrop turned on. If no nearby Mac with AirDrop is detected,
this message will appear: "Other people nearby need to open
AirDrop in the Finder in order to receive this file."

If you choose YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, or Facebook, you'll be


asked to log in if necessary before sharing your file:

(For Vimeo, Flickr, and Facebook you will be redirected to System


Preferences to log in.)

Merge clips

In QuickTime Player, you can combine multiple clips, or combine them with an entire
movie. To add a clip or entire movie to your movie, open your movie in QuickTime
Player, then drag the clip or movie you want into your movie window. QuickTime Player
will automatically scale or crop the clip or movie to match your movie.

Mac Basics: Dashboard


Learn about the Dashboard and widgets in OS X.
Not everything you do on your Mac requires a heavy-duty application. For those smaller
tasks, OS X features Dashboard. Dashboard provides access to several fun and
functional, mini applications called widgets.

Dashboard includes widgets for some of your Mac applications, such as Contacts and
Calendar, which allow you to access your contacts and view your events, respectively,
without having to switch over to the full application. You can add more widgets to
Dashboard and even create your own widgets.

Working with Dashboard and widgets

1. To open Dashboard:

In OS X Mountain Lion, swipe up with three fingers. This will open


Mission Control, where you can click the Dashboard.

Or, while in the Finder, swipe two or more fingers from right to
left. (If this doesn't work, make sure "Show Dashboard as a
space" is checked in Mission Control preferences.)

Or, press the Mission Control key (F3), and click the Dashboard.
You can also open Dashboard by pressing the Launchpad key
(F4) or clicking the Launchpad icon in the Dock, and then clicking
the Dashboard.

Tip: You may have to swipe left or right to locate the Dashboard
in Launchpad.

In Mac OS X v10.6 and earlier, you can click the Dashboard icon
in the Dock.

2. A default set of widgets appears. You can move the widgets


anywhere you want by simply dragging them. Click and hold your
mouse button on a widget and move your mouseor finger, if you're
using a trackpad.

To activate a widget, just select it. For example, if you click the Dictionary widget, type a
word in its search field. If you click the Stickies widget, type a note or two. If you click
the Tile Game widget, start playing.

Adding and removing Dashboard widgets

1. To see all the widgets on your Mac, click the add (+) button in the
lower-left corner of the screen to enter the widget browser. The
widget browser displays all widgets on your Mac.
2. To add a widget to Dashboard, click an icon in the widget browser. Or
start typing the name of the widget in the search field and click the
widget to add it to your Dashboard.

3. To remove a widget from Dashboard, click the Remove () button in


the lower-left corner of the Dashboard, then click the unwanted
widget's close button (the round button with a white X at the upper
left of the widget icon).
Adding and removing widgets from the widget browser

1. From Dashboard, click the add (+) button in the lower-left corner of
the screen to enter the widget browser.

2. If you want to download more widgets, click the More Widgets button
in the widget browser to go to the Apple Dashboard download
webpage.

3. To create a folder for your widgets, drag a widget icon onto another
icon. Widget browser creates a new folder named Untitled that
contains the two widgets. Click the Untitled folder name and type a
name for the folder. To add other widgets to the folder, drag the
widget icon onto the folder.

4. To remove a widget from the widget browser, click the Remove ()


button in the lower-left corner of the screen (the icons will jiggle),
then if present click the unwanted widget's close button (the round,
black button with a white X).

5. To quickly find a widget, start typing the name of the widget in the
search field.

Customizing your Dashboard widgets

Some of your widgets will have an Info (i) button you can click to view its settings. For
example, you can change the region and city of the World Clock widget.

1. Open Dashboard as described above.

2. Move the pointer over each widget. The widgets you can customize
have a small info button (i) in one corner.

3. Click the Info (i) button to see the settings you can change.

4. To exit Dashboard, swipe with three or four fingers to return to


Mission Control and click the desktop in OS X Mountain Lion. If you
pressed a key to open Dashboard, press it again.
Tip: In OS X Mountain Lion, if you want to change Dashboard back to its OS X Lion and
earlier interface, open Mission Control preferences in System Preferences and uncheck
the "Show Dashboard as a space" option.

Widget descriptions

Here's a closer look at the widgets you'll find preinstalled in Dashboard, and how to use
them.

Many widgets have options that let you select the information to display, such as the
time in a chosen city in this World Clock widget

ContactsThis widget accesses the Contacts application, enabling you to look up a


person's email address, phone number, and mailing address quickly. Just start typing a
name in the search field, or use the arrow buttons to step through all entries.

CalendarThis widget allows you to view the current day and date in a small calendar,
and will show any events you have added to Calendar. You can also view days and dates
in the future and past. Just click the left or right arrow buttons to jump through the
calendar by month.

CalculatorThis electronic version works just like its real-world counterpart, letting you
add, subtract, multiply, and divide numbers without thought. You can enter numbers by
clicking the buttons or pressing the numeric keys on your keyboard.

DictionaryGet word definitions, synonyms, and antonyms for any English language
word you type in the search field.

ESPNFor sports fans, this widget displays the latest scores and news for your favorite
baseball, basketball, football, and hockey teams. Just click the "i" button in the upper-
right corner and choose a sport from the pop-up menu. When finished, click "News" to
view the latest news feeds from ESPN or "Scores" to see how well your team is faring.

around the world. Just choose an airline, departure city, and arrival city from the pop-up
menus (or enter the information in the fields), or enter the flight number, and click Track.

stop. To rearrange tiles, click a tile that borders the empty space to move it in its place,
and continue in this manner until you see the picture again.

TranslationFor those times when you can't decipher a foreign language phrase, or
you need to translate one of your own into another language, this widget comes in
handy. Just choose the language that you want to translate from and to using the pop-up
menus, and type the word or phrase in the text box below "Translate from."

Unit ConverterIf you need to convert weights, measurements, temperatures, speeds,


currency, volume, and other items, this widget will do the job. Just choose a unit
category from the Convert pop-up menu, choose a unit that you want converted from
the bottom-left pop-up menu, choose the unit that you want it converted to in the
bottom-right pop-up menu, and enter a value in the left field to view the conversion to
its right.

current temperatures) and in current graphical conditions too. Click on the widget for a
6-day forecast. To change the city, click the "i" button; enter a city, state, or zip code;

Mac Basics: Automator


Automator is your personal automation assistant,
making it easy for you to do more, and with less
hassle. With Automator, you use a simple drag-and-
drop process to create and run automation recipes
that perform simple or complex tasks for you, when
and where you need them.

With Automator you can automate much of what you do with your computer. Create and
print a family directory of family members in your Contacts. Find and add images from
your favorite websites to iPhoto. Print your documents to your iPad. Instantly rename
dozens of files in the Finder. Even perform scheduled backups of important information.
Theres no limit to what you can do, and Automator can do in seconds and minutes what
could take you hours to do by hand.

"Instant snapshot" workflow sample

Have you ever wanted to take a quick snapshot of yourself to add to an email, message,
or chat? As an example of how easily you can use Automator to create your own
automation tools, heres a sample workflow you can build and install as a system-wide
service for using your portable Macs or iMacs built-in camera to instantly take and add
a snapshot of you into your iPhoto library. ("System-wide service" means you'll be able
to access it from an application's menu, under Services, as shown at the end of these
steps.)

Follow these steps on your computer to make the same service for yourself:

The Automator icon in Launchpad


1. Open Launchpad and type Automator in the search field. Click the icon of Otto
the Automator robot. A new Automator workflow window will appear.

You choose the type of Automator workflow document you want to create from the
template picker sheet

2. Select Service from the new windows drop-down template sheet (as shown
above) as the type of workflow document to create, and then click Choose. The
template sheet will recede to reveal a new workflow document, ready for editing:

Elements of the Automator workflow window

An Automator window (see the image above) contains:

(1) A Library column on the left, sorted by application or category, containing a


list of all of the Automator actions installed on your computer

(2) An Action column in the middle displaying the available actions for the
selected application or category

(3) A search field for quickly locating actions to add to the workflow

(4) An information box on the bottom-left to provide helpful information about a


selected action

(5) A workflow pane on the right side of the window, where you drag actions to
build your automation recipe"

(6) The "Service receives" pop-up menu

Lets continue creating the snapshot-taking workflow:


3. Service workflows are often designed to work with files or text, selected in other
applications, such as image files selected in the Finder. In this example workflow,
the service will generate a new photo for you, so theres no need to accept any
other files as input for the workflow. Set the service workflow to ignore any existing
selected items by choosing "no input" from the Service receives pop-up menu (6)
at the top of the window (see the image above).

4. Now that the input settings for the service workflow have been set, lets construct
the workflow by finding and adding actions from the Actions Library to the workflow
area. Well begin by locating an Automator action for taking a camera snapshot. In
the search field (1) enter the term snapshot and any Automator actions related to
that search term will appear in the Actions list below the search field (see below).

Dragging an action into the workflow area

5. According to its description at the bottom left of the workfow window (see above),
the Take Video Snapshot action, is perfect for automating the quick snapshot of a
photo using the computers built-in camera. Drag the action title from the Actions
list (2) into the workflow area (3).

6. Release the cursor to finish adding the action to the workflow:


Automator actions display their parameter controls in the actions inline view

7. When an action is added to the workflow area (see above), it displays a


rectangular view containing controls for setting the values of any parameters it
uses. In the view for the Take Video Snapshot action, there is a checkbox, titled
Take picture automatically, for indicating whether you want to require the user to
click a button to take the photo snapshot. Select the checkbox (1) to have the
workflow take the picture automatically. All youll need to do is smile.

8. Using the same search and add process you used for locating and adding the Take
Video Snapshot action to the workflow, search for the term import, and locate and
add the Import Files into iPhoto action to the end of the workflow:
Notice that the two actions in the workflow (see above) are linked together (1),
indicating that the results of the first action, the new photo file taken by the
computers camera, will be passed to the second action as its input. This is
generally how Automator workflows function, passing information and items
between each step (action) in the workflow.

9. Finally, as a bit of cleanup, well indicate we want to delete the original image file
taken by the camera, after it has been imported into iPhoto, by selecting the Delete
Source Images checkbox (2) in the action view (see above).

Thats all there is to creating a simple workflow for taking a camera snapshot and
adding it to iPhoto! Now youre ready to save and install the workflow.

10. To save and install the service workflow, choose File > Save. In the naming
sheet, enter Instant Snapshot as the name for the service, and click the Save
button. The new service workflow will automatically be installed as part of the
System-wide Services architecture, and be available from any applications Services
menu. You can now close the workflow window.
Using the service

To use your new service, center yourself in front of the computer, and select Instant
Snapshot from the Services menu, which is available from within any application:
Your Mac will beep three times and then take a picture, which will be automatically
added to your iPhoto library:

The new snapshot is added to iPhoto

Using Automator, you have now created a useful tool for making it easy to take and add
a snapshot of yourself to your iPhoto library.

Mac Basics: TextEdit


TextEdit is a highly versatile word processor included
with OS X. Learn about it editing tools and different
file formats it supports.

TextEdit lets you create all kinds of text documents. It includes tools to format and layout
your page, edit and stylize text, check spelling, create tables and lists, import graphics,
work with HTML, and even add music and movie files. Here are some of the things you
can do in TextEdit.
TextEdit does more than just let you edit text. Take a look at some of the things you can
do with your documents.

1. Open TextEdit from the Applications folder or with Launchpad (OS X


Lion and Mountain Lion).

2. Start typing whatever you want in the window. If you want to change
the text alignment from the default left alignment, highlight the text
and click one of the four alignment buttons in the toolbar to align left,
center, justify, or align right.
3. TextEdit automatically checks spelling as you type and will underline
words that it thinks are misspelled with a red dotted line. If you need
help with the correct spelling, highlight the word and from the Edit
menu, choose Spelling and Grammar, then Show Spelling and
Grammar from the submenu to open the Spelling window. The
window displays its best guesses for what you were trying to spell. To
correct the spelling, select the correct word and click Correct. TextEdit
will also automatically correct your spelling as you type or present
you with spelling options for the word you are trying to spell.

4. To change the font, from the Format menu, choose Font > Show
Fonts. In the resulting Font window, select a font typeface and size
from the columns. You can also choose to add an underline, add a
strike-through, change the text color, and add a text shadow from the
pop-up menus at the top of the Font window.

5. To add a photo, music, or movie file, just drag the file from a Finder
window to the document.
6. To create a list, choose a list style from the list pop-up menu. You can
pick options like bullets, numbers, or lettered lists.

7. Begin typing your list. To end your list, choose None from the list
pop-up menu.

Instead of manually entering bullet points, numbers, or letters, use


the Lists pop-up menu to have TextEdit create the list formatting for
you

8. To create a table, from the Format menu, choose Table. In the


resulting Table window, enter the number of rows and columns you
want, select the text alignment, choose the cell border thickness and
color, and choose a background color. Your TextEdit document
updates as you make changes.

Tip: In OS X Mountain Lion, you can use Dictation to have TextEdit type what you speak.

Mac Basics: Dictation


Learn about Dictation in Mountain Lion.

With Dictation, you can use your voice instead of typing text. No setup or special
training is required.

Turning Dictation on or off; setting Dictation preferences

1. Choose Apple () > System Preferences.

2. From the View menu, choose Dictation & Speech.

3. Click "On" to turn Dictation on, or "Off" to turn it off.

In Dictation preferences, you can also choose a shortcut key, choose the language, and
change the input source if desired.

Tip: You can also enable Dictation in an application by choosing Edit > Start
Dictation.

How to use Dictation in an application

To use Dictation in an OS X app, simply follow these steps:


1. Select a text field.

2. Press the fn (Function) key twice, or choose Edit > Start Dictation.

3. Speak what you want to have dictated into the text field.

4. When finished, click Done or press the fn key twice again. Your spoken words will
then appear in the text field.

Tips

You may speak continuously for up to 30 seconds at a time.

The purple input meter indicates how loud your voice is. If it is too low, try
moving closer to your microphone or speaking louder.

Dictating textual commands, punctuation, and emoticons

Dictation understands basic text-related commands such as all caps, new


paragraph, and new line.

When you say period, comma, question mark, or exclamation point, Dictation
adds that punctuation in the current text field. When speaking a calendar date, you do
not need to say "comma" as it's automatically detected and entered for you.

You can insert emoticons into a text field by saying "smiley" or "frown," for example.

Using microphones

You can use the built-in microphone in your Mac, or connect an external third-party
microphone using any of the connection types supported by OS X. If you use a different
microphone than the one built-in to your Mac, you may need to change the input device
in the Dictation & Speech preference pane. If Dictation isn't using the microphone you
want, check your settings in Dictation preferences, in System Preferences.

If your computer or display does not have a built-in microphone, you will need to
connect an external microphone in order to use Dictation.

Accents

The more you use Dictation, the better it understands you. Dictation learns the
characteristics of your voice and adapts to your accent.

Using Dictation with Parental Controls

Dictation is disabled by default in accounts that are managed by Parental Controls. You
can enable Dictation via Parental Controls by following the steps in this article.

Changing the shortcut key

Dictation uses the Function (fn) key by default as the shortcut key to start and stop
Dictation, but you can easily change it to a different key. Open System Preferences, click
Dictation and Speech, then use the Shortcut pop-up menu. You can press two (or more)
keys to create a new shortcut key.

Changing the language

You can select which language to use for Dictation in the Dictation and Speech pane of
System Preferences. When your system is set to one of these languages, it automatically
enters the right text.
Dictation supports English (U.S., UK, and Australia), French, German, Japanese,
Mandarin*, Cantonese*, Spanish*, Korean*, Canadian English*, Canadian French*, and
Italian*.

* Requires OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.2 or later.

Dictation needs an Internet connection

Dictation requires an active Internet connection. If you have a proxy server on your
network, at your workplace for example, Dictation may appear to have no Internet
connection. In rare circumstances, a very slow connection may cause delays between
when you speak a word and when it then appears in a text field when finished. To learn
what network ports Dictation uses, please refer to this article.

Additional Information

About Dictation and privacy

When you use the keyboard dictation feature on your computer, the things you dictate
will be recorded and sent to Apple to convert what you say into text. Your computer will
also send Apple other information, such as your first name and nickname; and the
names, nicknames, and relationship with you (for example, my dad) of your address
book contacts. All of this data is used to help the dictation feature understand you better
and recognize what you say. Your User Data is not linked to other data that Apple may
have from your use of other Apple services.

Information collected by Apple will be treated in accordance with Apple's Privacy Policy,
which can be found at www.apple.com/privacy.

You can choose to turn off the dictation feature at any time. To do so, open System
Preferences, click Dictation & Speech, and then click Off in the Dictation section. If you
turn off Dictation, Apple will delete your User Data, as well as your recent voice input
data. Older voice input data that has been disassociated from you may be retained for a
period of time to generally improve Dictation and other Apple products and services.
This voice input data may include audio files and transcripts of what you said and
related diagnostic data, such as hardware and operating system specifications and
performance statistics.
You can restrict access to the Dictation feature on your computer in the Parental Controls
pane of System Preferences.

Mac Basics: Spotlight


Learn how to use Spotlight when you need to find
something on your Mac fast and easy.

You can access Spotlight from its menu bar icon or in any Finder window.

Spotlight starts finding files when you begin typing in the Spotlight search field. It will
display applications, files, and folders whose names match your search criteria, as well
as files that contain your criteria within them, such as in text documents, applications,
emails, calendars, and more. For example, if you type "itunes", Spotlight will locate the
iTunes application, as well as folders, System Preferences, and web searches that
contain the text "itunes" or media files in them.
Click the Spotlight icon in the upper-right corner of your screen (or press Command-
Space bar) and type what you're looking for in the resulting field.

The moment you start typing, Spotlight begins to show you what it has found, organizing
your results by category (including Applications, Documents, Images, and PDF
Documents). The more you type, the more refined your results will be.

Tip: You can use the Spotlight pane of System Preferences to arrange the order of these
categories and specify categories which will appear. Choose "Spotlight Preferences..."
below the search results.

If there are a lot of results, Spotlight won't display everything in the menu or window. If
you want to see everything, choose "Show All in Finder" to open a Finder window that
shows all results.

To preview an item in the Spotlight results list, use the Up Arrow and Down Arrow keys, a
two-finger trackpad swipe, or move the pointer to scroll through the results. A preview
appears for each item as it is highlighted. To open an item in the results list, just click it
if you're viewing the Spotlight menu, or double-click the item if you're looking at results
in the Finder.
You can also type your search criteria in the search field of any Finder, System
Preferences, or application window that supports it. For example, you can type ".jpg" if
you want to find all JPEG images on your Mac, or type a friend's name and a couple
keywords to locate a particular email from your friend about something.

When searching from within the Finder window, you can change where Spotlight
searches by clicking This Mac to search everywhere on your Mac or your current folder
location (the search example below shows Documents as the current folder location).

Also, you can click the Add (+) button located on the right side of the search window
below the search field to narrow down search results. For example, choose Contents for
your search to include the contents of the files, or choose Name to have your search
apply only to the name of your files.

To make more choices available in the search criteria pop-up menu, choose Other and
select the checkbox for each attribute you want to add or use the search field to quickly
locate an attribute. For example, to be able to search copyright information, select the

Connecting Accessories

Learn how to connect your printer, digital camera, camcorder, and other devices to your Mac, and find
out how to use them with it.
Mac Basics: Ports and connectors
Learn about the ports and connectors on your Mac.

Here are some examples of your computer's ports which are used to connect power,
headphones, or other devices (called peripherals) to your Mac.

Ports on a MacBook Pro with Retina display:

Ports on the back of an iMac:

Different kinds of ports

MagSafe port: On a Mac notebook, this is where you connect the


MagSafe power cable.
USB port: A wired external keyboard or mouse connects to your
computer's USB port, as do many printers and USB flash drives
(wireless keyboards, trackpads, and printers do not need to use a USB
portthese use wireless Bluetooth or Wi-Fi technology). Learn more
about using USB devices with Mac computers here.

Thunderbolt: Connect a Thunderbolt display, or connect a Mini


DisplayPort to DVI, VGA, HDMI, or DisplayPort adapter. Also connect
storage devices, video capture, firewire, and gigabit ethernet
adapters directly to your Mac's Thunderbolt port. Got a new
Thunderbolt display? See which Macs can connect to it.

Audio ports: Connect your Mac to an audio system or to connect


headphones or speakers using the audio ports.

HDMI port: You can use this port and an HDMI cable to connect to
an HDTV's HDMI port, and use the TV as an external display. Note:
You can also use an Apple TV and AirPlay Mirroring to turn your HDTV
into an external display.

Ethernet port: If you connect to the Internet without Wi-Fi, you


probably have a modem or router connected to your computer's
Ethernet port. If your Mac doesn't have an Ethernet port but you need
one, you can use the Apple USB Ethernet Adapter.

FireWire port: Some Macs come with FireWire 400 or FireWire 800
ports for connecting peripheral devices such as external hard drives.

Some Macs include a card reader slot ("SDXC card"), which makes it
easy to transfer photos to and from your computer.

A Kensington lock slot is available on certain Macs.

Which ports does my Mac have?

To learn which ports and connectors your Mac has:

1. Find your computer's serial number.

2. Go to Tech Specs.
3. Enter your computer's serial number into the search box on the Tech
Specs page. The search results should include your model of Mac.

4. Click your computer to see its technical specifications, which include


the ports and connectors.

I need more ports!

Some Macs have more ports than others. If you run into a situation in which your Mac
doesn't have enough ports to connect all of your USB or FIreWire peripherals, consider
getting a third-party hub.

There are many third-party USB and FireWire hubs on the market. These hubs work in
the same way that a power strip allows you to plug in more electrical devices into a
single socket. Companies such as Belkin and Kensington offer a wide variety of hubs.

If you want to create your own computer network, you can find plenty of Ethernet
routers and hubs on the market too.

Additional Information

The user guide for your Mac has more information about the specific ports included on
your computer. You can download a copy from the manuals page.

Learn more about ports, devices, and basic troubleshooting.

Mac Basics: Connecting a home stereo,
iPod, iPad, musical instruments, or
speakers
You can easily connect guitars, microphones,
keyboards, digital music players, home stereos, and
speakers to your Mac. Learn how to connect third-
party audio and music devices to your Mac, and how
to configure them for use.

Playing and streaming music from your Mac, iPod, or iPad

You can play music from your Mac using iTunes, or, stream it wirelessly to external
speakers using an iPod, iPhone or iPad.

If you need to use a third-party audio device to connect your speakers to your Mac, it
needs to be plugged-in using a FireWire, USB or S/PDIF cable. If drivers are required for
the audio device, you should install them first, before plugging the device into the Mac
for the first time. If you aren't sure if a driver needs to be installed for your audio device,
check with the documentation which was included with it, or, consult the manufacturers
web site. Class compliant audio devices do not require a software driver to work with a
Mac, whereas non-class compliant audio devices require a driver for correct operation.
The most obvious clues that a required driver has not been installed for a third party
audio device include no sound, constantly blinking lights on the audio device itself
and/or difficulty choosing the device as an input (or output) in Sound preferences.

You can also stream music (as well as videos and photos) from your iPod, iPad, or iPhone
using AirPlay. Additionally, with iOS 5 or later, you can wirelessly sync your iOS device
(including music) over a shared Wi-Fi connection.

Connecting your home stereo to a Mac

If you want to digitize your vinyl record or cassette tape collection, or other sound
source, you can easily connect your home stereo to your computer, then use audio
recording software such as GarageBand to record the music on your Mac.

To do this, you will need a USB or FireWire audio interface that has dual RCA inputs, or if
your Mac has an audio input, you can use a 1/8-inch stereo mini plug to dual RCA female
connectors adapter.
Follow these steps to record from your home stereo to your Mac.

1. Connect the RCA connectors to your stereo receiver's auxiliary (Aux)


output. (This may also be called "Record" or "Tape Out" on some
receivers)

2. Connect the other end of the cable either to the audio input port on
your Mac, or, to your Mac-connected audio interface.

3. Turn on your home stereo.

4. Make sure your stereo is set to output via auxiliary.

5. From the Apple () menu, choose System Preferences, then click


Sound.

6. Click the Input tab and select your audio interface or the audio line
In.

Connecting headphones and speakers

Macs have built-in speakers, but you may also consider connecting a set of headphones
for personal listening, or, connect external speakers (which are sometimes also referred
to as monitors) to your computer for audio mixing or other tasks. You don't need to
install additional software unless you have a surround sound speaker system that
requires a driver to be installed on your Mac.

To use headphones, just plug in your headphone cable into the headphone/line out port
on your Mac, if your headphones have a 1/4-inch stereo plug, you will need a 1/4-inch
stereo female phono connector to 1/8-inch stereo mini-phono plug adapter.

Depending on your speaker connections and your computer's ports, you will need to
connect them to your computer's headphone/line out jack, USB port, FireWire port, or
optical digital audio output port. Generally, regardless of what type of connector you
use, you'll need to connect one main cable to the appropriate port on your Mac to then
"feed" the audio signal to your speaker system. Please consult the instructions that
came with your speakers for information and about hooking up your speaker system.
Your speakers instructions may also contain suggestions for ideal speaker placement
locations.
Tip: If surround sound content plays on only two speakers of a 5-speaker (or more)
surround sound setup, it may indicate a configuration problem with the speakers, or the
application being used to play the content on the Mac doesn't support surround sound
output. For best results, always use either the iTunes or DVD Player applications to enjoy
surround sound content on your Mac.

Attaching an audio interface

Plug in your guitar, bass, keyboard or microphone


Connect a USB musical keyboard

Additional Information

See also: Setting up iTunes and DVD Player for digital surround sound.

If you're having difficulty getting MIDI devices working with your audio interface and/or
Mac, try following the steps in this article using the Audio MIDI Setup application.

Mac Basics: Connect your camera or


camcorder
Digital cameras and camcorders allow you to capture
memorable events. Learn how to import your photos
and videos from your camera or camcorder.

Digital cameras

With iPhoto, you can organize, edit, and share your photos. Your friends and family can
enjoy your vacation videos even more after you edit the footage in iMovie.

If you're looking for more professional approach to editing and enhancing photos and
videos, try Aperture for retouching photos or Final Cut Pro for video editing.

You have to import your photos and movies into your Mac first, which brings us to this
topic:

Connecting your camera or camcorder to your Mac

Although many cameras can be connected to your computer (often with a USB or
FireWire cable) without installing any software, check the documentation that came with
your camera to see what your model requires; some manufacturers require or
recommend that you install software to get the full benefits from your camera. Your
camera might use a card to store media, which can be inserted into some Macs as
described below.

If you want to use iPhoto to view and edit your pictures


iPhoto makes it easy to download your camera's photos to your hard drive.

1. Make sure you have the latest iPhoto and OS X updates installed by
checking the App Store (OS X Mountain Lion) or Software Update.

2. Connect your camera to your Mac using the USB cable that came
with your camera.

Note: If your Mac has an SD card slot and your camera uses a
compatible SD card, you can simply insert the card into your Mac
instead of connecting the camera via a USB cable (then skip to step
4).

3. Turn on your camera. If your camera needs to be set to a certain


mode to transfer photos, do so now but check your camera manual if
you're not sure how. The camera or more precisely, its media card,
appears in the devices section of the Finder sidebar as a mounted
volume.
4. Open iPhoto, if it does not open automatically.

5. iPhoto displays your camera or the name you gave your media card
in the devices list of the iPhoto sidebar.

6. Type a name for your group of photos in the Event Name field, such
as "Nevada Vacation" or "Company Party Photos."

7. Click Import Selected to only import selected photos from your

Mac Basics: Using a scanner


Learn about using a scanner in OS X so that you can
scan text documents, photographs, and so forth into
files on your Mac.

Note: Your scanner may be part of a multi-function printer; see Printing for details about
managing printers.

Tips for scanning in OS X

Check the list of supported scanners for the model of scanner you are
about to connect to your Mac.

Use Software Update to automatically install third-party scanner /


printer software updates.
Connect a USB scanner to automatically create the scanner / print
queue.

You can share your USB connected scanner with other Macs on your
home network.

You can scan from various applications:

Image Capture

Preview

Print & Fax preferences in System Preferences

Scanner / Printer queue

Some third-party applications

Important: If your scanner driver supports control panel functions in OS X, pressing a


scan button on your device may not begin the scanning process. Use one of the above
applications to control the scanner.

See below for more details about these features.

Before you connect your scanner

Make sure the scanner is powered on and doesn't have any alerts
displayed in its control panel.

Make sure you know an administrator account name and password for
your Mac.

Connect the scanner

Simply connect your multi-function printer or scanner via a USB cable. If you multi-
function printer uses a Ethernet or wireless network, make sure it is configured to use
the same local network as your Mac. Next, choose Apple () > System Preferences
and then choose View > Print & Scan. Click the + (plus) icon below the Printers pane
on the left and select the printer you would like to add.
After you connect to your scanner, run Software Update to check for the latest third-
party printer / scanner software and updates.

Note: Refrain from installing the software that came with your scanner as it may be out
of date. OS X and Software Update contain the most recent versions of scanner
software. You will see future updates when they are made available via Software Update.

How to scan

Note: This article discusses scanning via the Image Capture application (located in the
Applications folder). Scanning with other applications such as Preview is a very similar
process.

Simplified scan mode

In the "simplified" scanner interface, follow these steps:

1. Place the item(s) you would like to scan on the scanner bed.

2. Open Image Capture by clicking Launchpad in the Dock and typing


Image Capture in the search field.
3. OS X Mountain Lion: If your scanner has a document feeder, you can
check "Use Document Feeder" to scan via the feeder instead of the
flatbed.
OS X Lion and earlier: If your scanner supports different modes, you
will see a "Mode:" pop-up menu in Image Capture. Modes may
include Flatbed, Transparency Positive, Transparency Negative, and
more.

4. OS X Mountain Lion: By default, Image Capture will scan to the


system's default page size such as "US Letter", and scan the whole
page. Click for other options such as "Detect Enclosing Box" or
"Detect Separate Items".

OS X Lion and earlier: Choose "Detect Separate Items" from the "Auto
selection" pop-up menu to have scanned objects automatically
selected and straightened. Each item will also be stored in a separate
file. Tip: Objects with high contrast edging will increase the accuracy
of auto-selection. "Detect Enclosing Box" from the "Auto selection"
pop-up menu to include all the items on the scanner bed in one
image.

5. Choose where to save the scanned images from the "Scan To:" pop-
up menu:

A folder of your choosing. A number of folders are already pre-


configured or choose "Other" to select the folder you want.

An application such as iPhoto, Aperture, or Preview.

Mail application, to have each of your scanned images put into


its own email message.

6. Click "Scan" to scan.

Note: The scanned items will become JPEG images incrementally named: scan1.jpeg,
scan2.jpeg, and so forth.

Advanced scanning options

Selecting areas to scan

If you want to select specific areas to scan (or if you unchecked "Detect Separate
Items"), follow these steps. Note: The "Scan" button is dimmed until a scan area is
selected.

1. Deselect all currently selected scan areas by clicking in an empty


area that is not yet selected (selected areas are outlined by a border
that has a line of dashes).

2. To specify the scanning area, click and drag to cover the area you
want to scan.

3. To resize a selection area, click within the border of the selected area.
Gray dots appear on the border. When your cursor hovers over a
handle, it will turn red. Click and drag the red handle to resize the
scan area. Tip: You can Shift-click another area to select more than
one.
4. If you want to delete the selection, press Delete.

5. If you want to rotate the selection, click the rotation handle just at
the end of the line that starts in the center of the selection. When
your cursor is near this handle, it turns red and a transparent image
of a person will appear within the area. Click the red handle and
adjust the rotation to your liking. Note: There may be a border
handle to resize your selection near this handle; make sure you click
on the correct handle.

6. To create a new selection area, simply click and drag in an area that
is not part of a selection.

How to share your USB-connected scanner on your network

1. From the Apple () menu, choose System Preferences.

2. From the View menu, choose Sharing.

3. Enable (check) "Scanner Sharing".

4. Select the connected scanner that you would like to share.

How to add a printer

Before adding a printer to your Mac, check the following:

Run Software Update to retrieve the latest information about printer


software provided to Apple by the printer vendors. Note: If you do not
run Software Update before attempting to connect a new printer, you
may see that software is not available.

Make sure the printer is powered on, has paper, and doesn't have any
issues such as a paper jam, low ink, or alerts displayed on its control
panel. Note: If the printer has an issue that can't be cleared, contact
the printer vendor for support.

If the printer is a Wi-Fi printer and it is connecting to a Wi-Fi network,


make sure it is properly connected to the Wi-Fi network first. The
printer may have to be connected to the Mac initially via USB. See
Overview on how to connect a Wi-Fi printer to your Wi-Fi network for
details.

Adding, managing, or removing print queues and software may


require an administrator account name and password--make sure you
know one for the Mac. Note: Any applications that are open before
adding a printer will need to be quit and re-opened, in order to see all
the features of the new printer.

Add a USB printer

Connect the USB printer to the Mac, and a print queue will be automatically created for
it. If the Mac already has current software for the printer, the print queue is created for
you in the background.

Additional Information
About graphic resolutions for inkjet and laser printers

Edit large graphic(s) to use a resolution of 360 DPI. Note: 360 DPI is a good general
recommendation. Check the printer's documentation and printer manufacturer's website
for more information about the maximum resolution for printing graphics.

When printing graphics to a inkjet or laser printer, the graphic(s) resolution rarely needs
to be more than 360 DPI. If you send a higher-resolution graphic to your printer than is
needed, the image will be reduced to a resolution which your printer can handle. With a
very large image (2 GB or larger), you may see a "Print failed due to program error" alert
message and the print job will not work.

Reducing your graphics to the maximum resolution that your printer can print may also
improve printing performance, because your Mac will not have to pair down your graphic
resolution to match your printer.

If you want to calculate the byte size of your image, you can use these formulas:

For graphics based on 8-bit RGB component:

3 x DPI x DPI x height x width

For graphics based on 16-bit RGB component:

6 x DPI x DPI x height x width

For graphics based on 8-bit CMYK component:

4 x DPI x DPI x height x width

For graphics based on 16-bit CMYK component:

8 x DPI x DPI x height x width

For graphics based on 8-bit grayscale component:

1 x DPI x DPI x height x width

For graphics based on 16-bit grayscale component:


2 x DPI x DPI x height x width

Because inkjet and laser printers use a process called halftoning to approximate the
colors in your image, the maximum useful image resolution is typically 1/4 (one fourth)
the advertised resolution of your printer. For example, a printer that advertises a
resolution of 1440 DPI does not require graphics with more than a resolution of 360 DPI.

Halftoning approximates colors by printing a pattern of dots that, when viewed from a
distance, look like the original color. Modern printers use very small dots so you have to
look very closely to see them.

Example

The graphic below shows shades of cyan from white to full saturation. In the first graphic
pixel zoom we see no printer dots of cyan, which represents a graphic pixel of white. The
next graphic pixel zoom shows 25% of the printer dots having a cyan dot, making for a
graphic pixel of 25% cyan saturation. The halftone process adds more cyan dots until all
the dots are filled with cyan. A 8-by-8 matrix of printer dots will make 1 graphic pixel
capable of 64 shades of cyan. Note: Printer software will slightly randomize the location
of these dots to help smooth out gradients and so forth.

Mac Basics: Using a scanner


Learn about using a scanner in OS X so that you can
scan text documents, photographs, and so forth into
files on your Mac.

Note: Your scanner may be part of a multi-function printer; see Printing for details about
managing printers.

Tips for scanning in OS X

Check the list of supported scanners for the model of scanner you are
about to connect to your Mac.

Use Software Update to automatically install third-party scanner /


printer software updates.

Connect a USB scanner to automatically create the scanner / print


queue.

You can share your USB connected scanner with other Macs on your
home network.

You can scan from various applications:

Image Capture
Preview

Print & Fax preferences in System Preferences

Scanner / Printer queue

Some third-party applications

Important: If your scanner driver supports control panel functions in OS X, pressing a


scan button on your device may not begin the scanning process. Use one of the above
applications to control the scanner.

See below for more details about these features.

Before you connect your scanner

Make sure the scanner is powered on and doesn't have any alerts
displayed in its control panel.

Make sure you know an administrator account name and password for
your Mac.

Connect the scanner

Simply connect your multi-function printer or scanner via a USB cable. If you multi-
function printer uses a Ethernet or wireless network, make sure it is configured to use
the same local network as your Mac. Next, choose Apple () > System Preferences
and then choose View > Print & Scan. Click the + (plus) icon below the Printers pane
on the left and select the printer you would like to add.

After you connect to your scanner, run Software Update to check for the latest third-
party printer / scanner software and updates.

Note: Refrain from installing the software that came with your scanner as it may be out
of date. OS X and Software Update contain the most recent versions of scanner
software. You will see future updates when they are made available via Software Update.

How to scan
Note: This article discusses scanning via the Image Capture application (located in the
Applications folder). Scanning with other applications such as Preview is a very similar
process.

Simplified scan mode

In the "simplified" scanner interface, follow these steps:

1. Place the item(s) you would like to scan on the scanner bed.

2. Open Image Capture by clicking Launchpad in the Dock and typing


Image Capture in the search field.

3. OS X Mountain Lion: If your scanner has a document feeder, you can


check "Use Document Feeder" to scan via the feeder instead of the
flatbed.
OS X Lion and earlier: If your scanner supports different modes, you
will see a "Mode:" pop-up menu in Image Capture. Modes may
include Flatbed, Transparency Positive, Transparency Negative, and
more.

4. OS X Mountain Lion: By default, Image Capture will scan to the


system's default page size such as "US Letter", and scan the whole
page. Click for other options such as "Detect Enclosing Box" or
"Detect Separate Items".

OS X Lion and earlier: Choose "Detect Separate Items" from the "Auto
selection" pop-up menu to have scanned objects automatically
selected and straightened. Each item will also be stored in a separate
file. Tip: Objects with high contrast edging will increase the accuracy
of auto-selection. "Detect Enclosing Box" from the "Auto selection"
pop-up menu to include all the items on the scanner bed in one
image.

5. Choose where to save the scanned images from the "Scan To:" pop-
up menu:

A folder of your choosing. A number of folders are already pre-


configured or choose "Other" to select the folder you want.

An application such as iPhoto, Aperture, or Preview.

Mail application, to have each of your scanned images put into


its own email message.

6. Click "Scan" to scan.

Note: The scanned items will become JPEG images incrementally named: scan1.jpeg,
scan2.jpeg, and so forth.

Advanced scanning options

Click "Show Details" if you want to enter a detailed scan mode with more advanced
options. In the "Details" scanner interface you can manually select the following options:

1. If your scanner supports different modes, you will see a "Mode:"


pop-up menu. Modes can include: Flatbed, Transparency Positive,
Transparency Negative, and so forth.
2. The "Kind:" pop-up menu lets you select the kind of scan you
would like.

Choose "Color" to scan an object in color.

Choose "Black & White" to scan in an object in Grayscale (256


or Thousands of grays).

Choose "Text" to scan in text documents.

3. The "Resolution:" pop-up menu lets you select the dpi (dots per
inch) of your scanned imaged. Typically, 300 dpi is all that you
need. Too high of a resolution can result in printing performance
issues.

4. Select the Use Custom Size checkbox to enable the "Size:" fields
(if it's not already selected) to specify the width and height you
want to scan. Choose pixels, inches or cm (centimeters).

5. In the "Rotation Angle:" field, you can set the number of degrees
of clockwise rotation for your scanned image.

6. Choose one of the following from the "Auto selection" pop-up


menu:

"Detect Separate Items" to automatically select and


straighten the objects you are scanning. Tip: High contrast
object edging will increase the accuracy of auto-selection.

"Detect Enclosing Box" to include all the items on the scanner


bed in one image.

7. Use the "Scan To:" pop-up menu to select your "Scan To:"
destination. Your destinations can include:

A folder of your choosing. A number of folders are already


pre-configured or choose "Other" to select the folder you
want.

An application such as iPhoto, Aperture, or Preview.


Mail application, to have each of your scanned images put
into its own email message.

8. The "Name:" field lets you enter the name of your scanned image
or images. For multiple scans, the name entered will be a part of
incrementally named scans. For example, scan1.jpeg, scan2.jpeg,
and so forth.

9. "Format:" Choose the image format of your scan: JPEG, TIFF,


PNG, JPEG 2000, or PDF.

10. "Image Correction:" If you select "Manual", you have the


following options with a histogram of the scan selection you click
on. The following options are available when the "Kind:" pop-up is
set to "Color."

"Brightness:"

"Tint:"

"Temperature:"

"Saturation:"
Tip: click "Restore Defaults" to reset settings.

11. After Image correction, you will see a number of scanner-specific


options that your particular scanner model supports.

Selecting areas to scan

If you want to select specific areas to scan (or if you unchecked "Detect Separate
Items"), follow these steps. Note: The "Scan" button is dimmed until a scan area is
selected.

1. Deselect all currently selected scan areas by clicking in an empty


area that is not yet selected (selected areas are outlined by a border
that has a line of dashes).

2. To specify the scanning area, click and drag to cover the area you
want to scan.
3. To resize a selection area, click within the border of the selected area.
Gray dots appear on the border. When your cursor hovers over a
handle, it will turn red. Click and drag the red handle to resize the
scan area. Tip: You can Shift-click another area to select more than
one.

4. If you want to delete the selection, press Delete.

5. If you want to rotate the selection, click the rotation handle just at
the end of the line that starts in the center of the selection. When
your cursor is near this handle, it turns red and a transparent image
of a person will appear within the area. Click the red handle and
adjust the rotation to your liking. Note: There may be a border
handle to resize your selection near this handle; make sure you click
on the correct handle.

6. To create a new selection area, simply click and drag in an area that
is not part of a selection.

Control-clicking the icon will bring up the Dock menu for your printer queue, as shown.

Tags on the printer queue icon include:

Red tag with a number indicates the number of print jobs in your
printer queue, the above example is indicating two print jobs.

Green tag with a pause symbol indicates the printer queue has been
paused, as shown above. Note: There is no green icon when the
printer queue is resumed.

Yellow tag with a bolt icon indicates there is an issue with the printer;
for example, the printer is not currently connected to your Mac.

You can also open the print queue from the "Print & Scan" pane of System Preferences.
Here is a sample print queue:

Additional Information
About graphic resolutions for inkjet and laser printers

Edit large graphic(s) to use a resolution of 360 DPI. Note: 360 DPI is a good general
recommendation. Check the printer's documentation and printer manufacturer's website
for more information about the maximum resolution for printing graphics.

When printing graphics to a inkjet or laser printer, the graphic(s) resolution rarely needs
to be more than 360 DPI. If you send a higher-resolution graphic to your printer than is
needed, the image will be reduced to a resolution which your printer can handle. With a
very large image (2 GB or larger), you may see a "Print failed due to program error" alert
message and the print job will not work.

Reducing your graphics to the maximum resolution that your printer can print may also
improve printing performance, because your Mac will not have to pair down your graphic
resolution to match your printer.

If you want to calculate the byte size of your image, you can use these formulas:

For graphics based on 8-bit RGB component:

3 x DPI x DPI x height x width

For graphics based on 16-bit RGB component:

6 x DPI x DPI x height x width

For graphics based on 8-bit CMYK component:

4 x DPI x DPI x height x width

For graphics based on 16-bit CMYK component:

8 x DPI x DPI x height x width

For graphics based on 8-bit grayscale component:

1 x DPI x DPI x height x width

For graphics based on 16-bit grayscale component:


2 x DPI x DPI x height x width

Because inkjet and laser printers use a process called halftoning to approximate the
colors in your image, the maximum useful image resolution is typically 1/4 (one fourth)
the advertised resolution of your printer. For example, a printer that advertises a
resolution of 1440 DPI does not require graphics with more than a resolution of 360 DPI.

Halftoning approximates colors by printing a pattern of dots that, when viewed from a
distance, look like the original color. Modern printers use very small dots so you have to
look very closely to see them.

Example

The graphic below shows shades of cyan from white to full saturation. In the first graphic
pixel zoom we see no printer dots of cyan, which represents a graphic pixel of white. The
next graphic pixel zoom shows 25% of the printer dots having a cyan dot, making for a
graphic pixel of 25% cyan saturation. The halftone process adds more cyan dots until all
the dots are filled with cyan. A 8-by-8 matrix of printer dots will make 1 graphic pixel
capable of 64 shades of cyan. Note: Printer software will slightly randomize the location
of these dots to help smooth out gradients and so forth.

Mac 101: Printing (Mac OS X v10.6)


Learn about printing in Mac OS X v10.6 Snow
Leopard, which is easier and better than ever.

Note: For information about printing in OS X Lion, please see this article instead.

Important: See this article for information about connecting a wireless-capable printer
to your wireless network.

Here's a quick summary of what's new for printing in Snow Leopard (read below for more
details):

Apple's Software Update will automatically provide you with third-


party printer software and updates.

"Nearby Printers" is a list of available printers that will appear right


inside your printer dialog box. Adding a nearby printer is just a
selection away.

You can simply connect a USB printer and the print queue will be
automatically created.
You can create a PDF document from any application and have an
automated workflow process it.

Before you connect your printer

Run Software Update to check for the latest third-party printer


software and updates.

Make sure the printer is powered on, has paper, and doesn't have any
issues such as a paper jam or low ink.

Adding, managing, or removing print queues may require an


administrator account name and password--make sure you know one
for your Mac.

If you are upgrading from Mac OS X v10.5, see "Upgrading Print


Queues..." in the additional information section below.

How to add a printer

To add a USB printer

Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers, so simply connect a
USB printer and the print queue will be automatically created. If you do not see your
printer in the "Printer:" pop-up menu after connecting it, go to the "To add a printer via
the Print & Fax preference pane" section below.

To add "Nearby Printers"

With Mac OS X v10.6 you can quickly add a "Nearby Printer"--a nearby printer is a
printer connected to the USB port on a Time Capsule or AirPort base station, a network
capable printer that supports Bonjour, or a printer being shared by another Mac. Snow
Leopard uses Bonjour technology to find nearby printers.

To add a Nearby Printer, all you have to do is select the Nearby printer you want from
the "Printer:" pop-up menu:
Snow Leopard will automatically create the Print Queue.

Note: Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party printers. If an additional
or updated printer software is available, Software Update will offer it to you. For more
information about supported printers see this article. You can also visit the printer
vendor's website for printer software, or contact them for technical support.

To add a printer via the Print & Fax preferences pane

Control-click the System Preferences icon in your Dock and choose "Print & Fax" from the
Dock menu. If the Print & Fax lock icon appears locked, click the lock icon and enter an
administrator name and password when prompted. Click the + (plus) icon below the
Printers pane on the left to open the Add Printer application.
From the Add Printer toolbar you have these default tools:

1. Default - Used to get a list of all printers that your Mac can see via
USB, Bonjour, and so forth. Tip: If you have a long list of printers, use
the search field to find the printer you are looking for. Just click the
printer in the list that you would like to add and Snow Leopard will
add the printer driver for you.

Mac OS X v10.6 comes with software for many third-party


printers. If an additional or updated printer software is available,
Software Update will offer it to you. If you do not see your printer
listed in the "Print Using:" pop-up menu or a Generic printer
driver is selected, then the printing software may not be
available from Apple. For more information about supported
printers see this article. You can also visit the printer vendor's
website for printer software, or contact them for technical
support.

Once the driver is set, click the "Add" button to create your Print
Queue.

2. Fax - Used to add a queue for the Fax device connected to your Mac.

3. IP - Used to add your printer network printers that don't use Bonjour
or are on a different network subnet from your computer. Printers
that support the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP), Line Printer Daemon
(LPD), and HP Jetdirect (Socket) can be added in this manner. See
your printer's manual or support documentation for information
about how to setup the printer to use an IP-based printing protocol.

4. Windows- Used to add your printer being shared via the Windows
printer sharing protocol (CIFS). Tip: See Mac 101: File Sharing for
details about how to add your Mac to a Windows Workgroup. This is
often needed to see Windows printer shares.
Note: Any applications that are open before you add a printer will need to be quit and
re-opened, in order to see all the features of the new printer.

Additional Information

To delete a Print Queue

1. Click the print queue you would like to remove from the list in the
"Printers" pane.

2. Click the - (minus) button below the "Printers" pane.

3. Click "Delete Printer" in the "Are you sure..." confirmation sheet.

To reset the printing system (if necessary)

1. Control-click or right-click a print queue in the "Printers" pane.

2. Choose "Reset printing system..." from the contextual menu.

3. Click "OK" in the "Are you sure..." confirmation sheet.

AppleTalk-based printers

AppleTalk is a protocol that is not supported in Mac OS X v10.6. Many network printers
have support for IP-based printing protocols that can be used instead of AppleTalk.
Please see the "To add a printer via the Print & Fax preferences pane" section for
information about how to add a printer using IP. Or, visit your printer vendor's website or
contact your printer vendor for technical support.
If your printer can only use the AppleTalk protocol, the printer can be used if it is
connected to, and shared by, an appropriate AppleTalk-capable printer server. Snow
Leopard can then use that print share to print via a supported IP-based protocol. See the
"How to add a printer" section above for details about how to connect to a shared printer
to your Snow Leopard-based Mac.

Upgrading print queues from Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard

When you update from Mac OS X v10.5 to Mac OS X v10.6, Mac OS X v10.6 will replace
all printer software and recreate print queues for any printer from these printer vendors:

HP, Canon, Epson, Brother, Lexmark, Samsung, Xerox, FujiXerox, Ricoh (includes
Gestetner, Infotec, Lanier, NRG, Savin)

If you have a printer that is not from one of these vendors, Mac OS X v10.6 will migrate
your printer queue from Mac OS X v10.5 when you upgrade.

If the print queue that you migrated from Mac OS X v10.5 has an issue, try these steps

1. Ensure the printer is connected, has power, has ink / toner, paper,
and no alerts on its built-in display.

2. Network based printers should be on the same subnet; you shouldn't


have to worry about this if your printer is on your home network.

3. Use Software Update for the latest available updates.

4. Delete the affected printer from Printer & Fax System Preferences,
then re-add the printer.

If you still have an issue, try these extra steps:

5. Reset the printing system (see above). Then, add the printer again.

6. If the issue persists, reset the printing system (see above). Download
and install printer drivers from here. Then, add the printer again.

7. If the issue still persists, contact the printer vendor and/or visit their
website for printer software and support.

Troubleshooting printer issues in OS X


Symptoms
Use this article to troubleshoot printer issues in OS
X.

Resolution

USB printers and Bonjour-enabled network printers

Follow these steps until the issue is addressed:

1. Make sure that the printer is powered on, has ink / toner, and that
there are no alerts on the printers control panel. Note: If you cannot
clear an alert on the printer's control panel, stop here and check the
printer's documentation or contact the manufacturer for support.

2. Ensure the printer is properly connected to a USB port on the Mac or


AirPort base station / Time Capsule. If the printer is a network-
capable printer, make sure that it is properly connected to your home
network.

3. Use Software Update to find and install the latest available updates.
If an update is installed, see if the issue persists.

4. Open the Print & Scan pane or Print & Fax (Snow Leopard) pane in
System Preferences.

5. Delete the affected printer, then add the printer again.

If the issue persists, try these additional steps:

1. Reset the printing system, then add the printer again.

2. If the issue still persists, reset the printing system again. Download
and install your printer's drivers. Then, add the printer again.

3. Contact the printer vendor or visit their website for further


assistance.

Additional Information
Note: If your printer is wireless-capable, you should first add the printer to your
network. Use the printer's control panel, or temporarily connect the printer to your Mac
via USB. For more details, see this article.

For information about adding a printer and other topics, see these articles:

USB printer troubleshooting for AirPort


Express, AirPort Extreme, and AirPort
Time Capsule
Symptoms

Your USB printer may work the way you expected it


to when connected to your computer, but not when
it's connected to your AirPort Express, AirPort
Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule for printer sharing.

Note: AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme and AirPort


Time Capsule printer sharing is for printing only, not
for printer utilities or other special features that may
require a direct USB connection.

Resolution

Check for software updates

Be sure that you have the most recent OS X or iOS software updates, and the latest
firmware for your AirPort product before trying to print.
Note: Printing via an iOS device requires an AirPrint enabled printer. Refer to AirPrint
Basics for a list of AirPrint enabled printers.

Disconnect and reconnect

1. Disconnect the AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time


Capsule from a power outlet.

2. Turn off the printer.

3. Be sure the USB cable from the printer is connected to the AirPort
Express, AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule.

4. Turn on the printer.

5. Reconnect the AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time


Capsule to a power outlet and wait for it to become ready.

6. Try to print.

Check your printer driver

Check the website of the printer's manufacturer for the latest driver version.

Reset Printing System

Use these steps on your Mac if the above steps do not help.

1. Open System Preferences > Print & Fax preferences.

2. Control-click or right-click in the Printers section on the left.

3. Choose Reset printing system....

4. Click OK.

5. Click the + button to add your printer again.

6. Try to print.

Still not working?


If your printer still doesn't work with AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time
Capsule printer sharing, but does work when directly connected to your Mac, contact the
printer manufacturer for additional information and to verify that printer sharing is
supported.

Additional Information

Refer to this article for additional help setting up a USB printer on your Wi-Fi network.

Refer to AirPrint Setup and Troubleshooting for additional AirPrint help for your iPhone or
iPad.

files or system to your Mac
Learn how you can transfer your existing Microsoft
Windows files or Windows system to your Mac.

You don't have to start your Mac life from scratchyou can transfer over many of your PC files and use them just like you

have before

You can easily move your Windows files to your new Mac and use them with Mac
applications. Macs can open many different kinds of files from your PC, as long as you
have appropriate software installed that can interpret them.

For example, you can move all of your Microsoft Office documents to your Mac if you
have Microsoft Office for Mac OS X installedOffice functions almost exactly the same
on a Mac as it does on a PC. Also, iWork applications (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote) can

Mac Basics: Using Windows on your Mac


via Boot Camp
Boot Camp lets you run Microsoft Windows on your
Mac. Learn how Boot Camp runs Windows and what
the installation requirements are.

Have a Windows application you need to use once in a while? No problem. Every new
Mac lets you install and run Windows at native speeds, using a built-in utility called Boot
Camp. Setup is simple and safe for your Mac files. After youve completed the
installation, you can boot up your Mac using either OS X or Windows.

Run Windows at native speed

You can run the Windows operating system on your Mac at native speedwithout the
performance penalty that comes with software emulation or "virtual machines."
Windows applications have full access to multiple processors and multiple cores,
accelerated 3D graphics, and high-speed ports and networking such as USB, FireWire,
Wi-Fi, AirPort, and Gigabit Ethernet as well as drivers for audio and Bluetooth
functionality. If you're using Mac OS X v10.5 or Mac OS X v10.6, the Boot Camp support
software is on the Mac OS X installation DVD. After the installation of Windows is
complete and you insert your installation flash drive or disc containing the Boot Camp
support software (while booted in Windows), it is automatically installed on your Mac.

Depending on your computers hardware and OS X version, Boot Camp supports


Microsoft Windows Windows XP with Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or
Windows 8. For more details, see Boot Camp: System requirements for Microsoft
Windows. For information about using 64-bit editions of Windows, see this article.

Boot Camp Assistant creates a partition just for Windows without erasing your existing
OS X volume.
After installation, you can switch between Windows and OS X by holding the Option (Alt)
key at start up. Or, use the Startup Disk control panel in Windows (installed with Boot
Camp support software) or the OS X Startup Disk preference pane to set the default
operating system to use each time the computer starts up.

Requirements

To use Boot Camp, you need:

1. An Intel-based Mac with a built-in or external USB keyboard, and a


built-in trackpad or USB mouse.

2. Mac OS X v10.5 or later.

3. The latest firmware updates available for your Mac.

4. Boot Camp Assistant, which is located in /Applications/Utilities/ . You


can also open Launchpad and type Boot Camp Assistant in the search
field.

5. Supported Windows installation media. Boot Camp does not include


Windows.

6. For additional requirements, see Boot Camp: System requirements


for Microsoft Windows

Notes

OS X Mountain Lion and OS X Lion only support new installations of


Windows.

Mac OS X v10.6 or later is required for Windows 7 installations.

Before installing Boot Camp

Before you install, follow these steps:

1. Always back up important data before any software installation.

2. Print the "Boot Camp Installation & Setup Guide" (OS X Mountain Lion
and OS X Lion versions, Mac OS X v10.6 version, or Mac OS X v10.5
version) document.
3. Update your Intel-based Mac to the latest version of OS X.

4. Download and install the latest firmware updates available for your
Mac. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the firmware
installation.

Installing Boot Camp

For specific installation steps, refer to the "Boot Camp Installation & Setup Guide" PDF
document that you printed, starting with Step 2 in the PDF. For Windows 7, you may wish
to also read the this article.

Note: OS X Mountain Lion and OS X Lion only support new installations of Windows.

Additional Information

See also: Boot Camp 4.0, OS X Mountain Lion and OS X Lion: Frequently asked questions
and Boot Camp 3.0, Mac OS X v10.6: Frequently asked questions.

Important: Apple does not provide technical phone support for installing, using, or
recovering Microsoft Windows. Support is available for using Boot Camp Setup Assistant,
as well as installing or restoring Boot Camp software while booted into Windows. Support
articles and discussions may also be available on Apple's support website.

When Migration Assistant or Setup Assistant is used to migrate applications between two
computers, it will bring over any applications it finds on the source computer that are
not already installed on the destination computer. In some cases, a PowerPC-based Mac
may have applications that will not run correctly through Rosetta on the Intel-based Mac.

For example, if your PowerPC-based Mac has X11 installed, but your Intel-based Mac
does not, and you use Migration Assistant to migrate applications from the PowerPC-
based Mac to the Intel-based Mac, X11 will get transferred to the Intel-based Mac but it
will not open. In this case, you can delete the PowerPC version of X11 and use Optional
Installs on the Install Disc that came with your Intel-based Mac to install the correct
version of X11.

transfer files from another Mac.

Electronic Software Distribution


Use the Boot Camp Assistant to create a CD or USB media to install
the latest Boot Camp drivers for your computer. You should get the
newest drivers available any time you install Boot Camp.

Support for the Windows 7 ISO installer


Install Windows with an installation disc you provide or, on Mac
computers that do not have an optical drive, with a USB flash drive
that contains a Windows 7 ISO image downloaded from Microsoft. The
Boot Camp Assistant will offer to create this image on supported
computers.
Upgrade or "clean" install Windows without using the Boot Camp
Assistant
If you want only to upgrade the version of Boot Camp or Windows on
your Windows partition, you dont need to use Boot Camp Assistant.
Instead, choose Help > Help Center in Finder and search for
upgrade Boot Camp or upgrade Windows.

Installation and partitioning questions

3. Which versions of Windows work with Boot Camp 4.0?

You can use Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, or
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate with Boot Camp 4.0. Windows XP and Windows Vista are
not supported with Boot Camp 4.0.

4. Does Windows 8 work with Boot Camp 4.0?

Microsoft Windows 8 is supported with Boot Camp 5. See Boot Camp: System
requirements for Microsoft Windows operating systems for more information.

5. Are 64-bit versions of Windows 7 supported?

Yes. Learn more about the Mac computers that support 64-bit versions of Windows 7.

6. I have a Mac Pro with a Mac Pro RAID card (Redundant Array of Independent Drives);
can I install Boot Camp on my Mac Pro?

7. Which application should I use to create a Windows partition?

Use Boot Camp Assistant (located in the Utilities folder) to create a partition for Microsoft
Windows. Boot Camp Assistant works only with an Intel-based Mac that has a single hard
disk partition. Boot Camp Assistant creates a second partition on your existing startup
disk for the Microsoft Windows operating system, or allows you to install Microsoft
Windows on another drive if you have more than one internal hard drive installed.

Boot Camp Assistant does not erase your existing partition or existing Mac OS X
installation when it creates a new partition for Microsoft Windows.
Important: Do not use disk utilities not made by Apple to partition the drive before
using Boot Camp Assistant. Doing so may erase the disk.

8. If I have more than one hard drive, can I install Microsoft Windows on any drive?

You can use Boot Camp to install Windows on any internal hard drive, but not on an
external hard drive.

9. I have a wireless mouse and keyboard, but they don't seem to respond when I try to
select a partition or type an account name during Windows installation. What is
happening?

The drivers for your wireless mouse and keyboard are not installed yet, so you cannot
use them. You need a wired mouse and keyboard to install Windows. When your
installation is complete, install the Windows drivers from the CD or USB media that were
created when you initially ran the Boot Camp Assistant. This should resume full function
of your wireless keyboard and mouse.

Startup questions

10. How do I choose which operating system will start up my Mac?

After running Boot Camp Assistant and installing Microsoft Windows and Boot Camp
drivers, press and hold the Option (Alt) key while you start up your Mac to switch
between Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Use the Startup Disk
control panel in Windows or Mac OS X Startup Disk preferences to set the default
operating system to use each time the computer starts up.

11. What can I do if my computer starts up to a black screen with white text that says
"No Boot Disk Attached"?

This message means that the Windows partition cannot start up, usually because of an
issue with the drive formatting. The Boot Camp Setup Assistant creates the Boot Camp
partition, but the Windows installer must format it to make it "bootable".

1. Start up to Mac OS X and run the Boot Camp Setup Assistant again.

2. Remove the Boot Camp partition and re-create it.

3. Install Windows again, this time using Windows to format the


partition.
Refer to the Boot Camp Installation & Setup Guide PDF document for more details on
installing Boot Camp.

12. Why doesn't my external FireWire, USB, or Thunderbolt disk appear in the Microsoft
Windows Startup Disk control panel?

External FireWire, USB, and Thunderbolt disks are not recognized by the Startup Disk
control panel in Microsoft Windows. To start up from a bootable external drive, press and
hold the Option (Alt) key while the computer starts up, then select the external disk.

Windows 8.

Which versions of Windows work with Boot Camp 5?


You can use:

Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

Microsoft Windows 8 Pro (64-bit)

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)

Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Enterprise versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8 are
not supported.
Are 32-bit versions of Windows 7 and 8 supported?
No. Boot Camp 5 supports 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and 8 only. Boot Camp 4
supports 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Windows 7, depending on the model Mac you
have. For more information, see Boot Camp: System requirements for Microsoft Windows
operating systems.

Can I upgrade a previously-installed 32 bit version of Windows to 64 bit?

32-bit versions of Windows cannot be directly upgraded to 64-bit versions. You should
back up your important files, then install the 64-bit version.

How can a Windows partition be resized after Windows is installed?

You need to delete the Windows partition using the Boot Camp Assistant, and start over
to change the size of the Windows partition. Back up your important Windows files first.

Are upgrade installs from Windows 7 to Windows 8 supported?

Yes, but be sure to install the Boot Camp 5.0 Support Software (drivers) before
upgrading to Windows 8. See Boot Camp: Frequently asked questions about installing
Windows 8 for more information.

After upgrading to Windows 8, run the Boot Camp 5.0 Support Software installer again.

Can I use a downloaded (ISO) version of Windows with Boot Camp?


MacBook Air (Mid 2011 and later), MacBook Pro (Mid 2012 and later, including Retina
models), Mac mini (Mid 2011 and later), and iMac (Late 2012) can install downloaded
(ISO) versions of Windows 7 and 8.

To determine if your Mac supports this feature:

1. Click the Go menu and choose Utilities.

2. Open Boot Camp Assistant.

3. Click Continue. If you see a "Create a Windows 7 or later install disk"


checkbox, your Mac supports the use of downloaded (ISO) install
images. See the Boot Camp Installation & Setup Guide for more
information.
Do computers that come with a Fusion Drive support Boot Camp?
Yes. Use the Boot Camp Assistant to create a Windows partition and install Boot Camp.
The Windows partition will exist on the hard disk drive, not the Flash drive, and is not
part of Fusion Drive Logical Volume Group. 3TB Fusion Drive configurations need to
update to OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.3 or later to install Windows 8. See iMac (27-inch,
Late 2012): Boot Camp alert with 3TB hard drive for more information.

I have a Mac Pro with a Mac Pro RAID card (Redundant Array of Independent
Drives). Can I install Boot Camp on my Mac Pro?
Boot Camp does not support the installation of Windows onto a Mac using a Mac Pro
RAID card or software RAID.

Which application should I use to create a Windows partition and to install


Windows?
Use Boot Camp Assistant (located in the Utilities folder) to create a Windows partition
and to install Microsoft Windows. Boot Camp Assistant works with an Intel-based Mac
that has a single hard disk partition or Fusion Drive. Boot Camp Assistant creates an
additional partition for the Microsoft Windows operating system or allows you to install
Microsoft Windows on another drive if you have more than one internal drive.

Boot Camp Assistant does not erase your existing Mac OS X partition or any of your OS X
software when it creates a new partition for Microsoft Windows.

Important: Do not use disk utilities not created by Apple to partition the drive before
using Boot Camp Assistant. Doing so may erase the entire disk.

Can I install Windows on an external drive?


No. Installing Boot Camp on an external hard drive is not supported.

Can more than one USB storage device be plugged in at Installation time?
No. You can only use one USB storage device during Windows installation. See Boot
Camp: Windows installation boots to black screen with blinking cursor for more
information.

Startup questions

How do I choose which operating system will start up my Mac?


After running Boot Camp Assistant and installing Microsoft Windows and Boot Camp
drivers, press and hold the Option (Alt) key while you start up your Mac to switch
between Microsoft Windows and OS X. Use the Startup Disk Control Panel in Windows or
OS X Startup Disk System Preferences to set the default operating system to use each
time the computer starts up.

Note: External FireWire, USB, and Thunderbolt disks are not recognized by the Startup
Disk control panel in Microsoft Windows. To start up from a bootable external drive, press
and hold the Option (Alt) key while the computer starts up, then select the external disk.

What can I do if my computer starts up to a black screen with white text that
says "No Boot Disk Attached"?
This message means that the Windows partition cannot start up, usually because of an
issue with the drive formatting. The Boot Camp Setup Assistant creates the Boot Camp
partition, but the Windows installer must format it to make it "bootable". To resolve this
issue:

1. Start up to OS X and run the Boot Camp Setup Assistant again.

2. Remove the Boot Camp partition and re-create it.

3. Install Windows again, this time using Windows to format the


partition.

4. Refer to the Boot Camp Installation & Setup Guide document for
more details on installing Boot Camp.

Some of these are well known, others are not. Shortcuts in the Menu category are 'common' rather
than 'universal'. This list should continue to grow exponentially over time. [Click here for the official
definitive list of Windows keyboard shortcuts!]

Home ACP Xfile Test Drive

Xfile Test Drive


Xfile from Rixstep is the only file manager for OS X capable of seamlessly handling all
file systems - fdesc, HFS+, HFS+ case-sensitive, UFS, volfs, ZFS. It's the only file
manager capable of detailing all file information
available on OS X - and offering full editing
capabilities for all these system features.

And Xfile is the only file manager for OS X that


shows you everything - literally everything.
Without exception. You'll be amazed - perhaps
even shocked - at how much is out there that you
never saw before.

And it runs so smooth on 10.8 Mountain Lion. Like


no other OS X file manager at any price.

Xfile on 10.8 Mountain Lion has power and speed


you simply can't comprehend.

Xfile manages 'file flags' (user and system append,


immutable, etc); 'sticky bits'; set user and group ID bits;
it displays major and minor device numbers, inodes
(CNIDs), number of links, blocks used, optimal block sizes, and file generation numbers for the
superuser; it creates both hard and symbolic links.

All of this is supported by your operating system. Almost none of it is supported by any
other file browser. Especially Apple's Finder.

Additional utilities included allow manipulation of two Unix and five HFS time stamps; batch and
recursive mode and time stamping; the remarkable Xshelf; the comprehensive 'post mortem'
analysis tool Tracker; complete access to 'legacy MacOS' filesystem data; and more.

Xfile is rugged - make no mistake about it. It's not a bloat monster and it's designed
correctly from the get-go. You never get yourself into those impossible 'crash and hang
situations' Finder and other file managers can't get out of.

[Purchase your Xfile here. ] [Download the Xfile Test Drive for OS X 10.4-10.8 here. ]

Xscan: Your Entire File System in 90 Seconds

Click here to get Xfile and Xscan now.

The Xfile package also includes the file system scanner Xscan for quickly locating items in the file
systems and for conducting perfunctory system security audits. Xscan can scan an entire OS X
computer, listing all files in eleven columns of file data, in a time span of one or two minutes even
on 'yesterday's hardware'. It can also scan entire networks at the same speed.

All items with resource forks are clearly marked with sizes for each fork available. The FileInfo utility
allows manipulation of the special 'Finder flags' found in HFS catalog node info blocks.

Xstrings dumps readable strings from binary files; Xfind searches given files for specified search
strings. And so forth.

All the utilities are tightly integrated - so if you can conceive of a way they work together, they
probably do.

The Xfile package comes with the proprietary ACP framework, offering seamless search capabilities
in every program, full management of both the imagery and documentation systems, and more.
Information on the full ACP is also available.

Part of the ACP


Xfile is part of the ACP - Rixstep's 'Apple Core Project', a research project into viable means to hone
and optimise generic application development on OS X for professional purposes. The ACP is
intended for the professional audience but extreme power users can also find benefit.

The Xfile package is part and parcel of the complete ACP and offers insight into the full capabilities
of this award winning product. The Xfile application is the fastest file manager for OS X, capable of
listing a full ten columns of file system data for 10,000 files in .14 seconds realtime. It's known as
the 'standard setter' for OS X file management. As it's the only file manager capable of doing
everything possible on OS X, it stands in a class of its own.

Package Contents
The Xfile package contains 290+ items. In addition to Xfile and the ACP framework it contains (at
least) the applications Clipothque, FileInfo, MD, Rixcomp, Rixmode, Rixstamp, TMI, Tracker, Xattrib,
Xfind, Xscan, Xsed, Xshelf, Xstamp, Xstrings, CLIX ACP edition, and Undercover. Further applications
are being added monthly.

The trial download contains a smattering of the above: Xfile, Xfind, Xscan, FileInfo, TMI, Tracker, and
Undercover.

System Requirements
OS X universal 10.4 - 10.8 (Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion);

Very little disk footprint; extremely frugal on RAM.

About Rixstep

C/NeXTSTEP/OpenStep/Cocoa software engineering. Their 'ACP' (AppleCore Project) has won
considerable acclaim, in particular their file manager Xfile and their GUI version of the Unix
command line CLIX. They also provide a series of free topical newsletters on security and industry
events and offer online courses in Unix and Cocoa programming.

Customizing shortcuts

Many system-wide shortcuts can be customized. This is described in detail in the Changing Keyboard Shortcuts

article.

[edit]
Shortcuts on laptops

On most Mac laptops, some of the function keys (F1 - F12) are used to control hardware features:

F1 decrease brightness
F2 increase brightness
F3 mute on G4s, decrease volume on G3s
F4 decrease volume on G4s, increase volume on G3s
F5 increase volume on G4s, numlock on G3s
F6 Num lock on G4s, mute on G3s
F7 Display mode (mirror or extend external display)
F8 disable backlit keyboards (Aluminum PowerBooks)
F9 decrease keyboard brightness for backlit keyboards
F1
increase keyboard brightness for backlit keyboards
0
F1 eject (some Macs, namely all MacBooks, MacBook Pros, and newer PowerBooks, place a dedicated eject key
2 next to the F12 key)

Newer Mac laptops (MacBook Pros made after February 2008, MacBooks after November(?) 2007, MacBook Airs),

and the Aluminum keyboard, have a different layout for fn keys. Some keys have been added, while the numlock key

has been removed and the display mode key has been integrated into the brightness key (see combinations in

parenthesis)

F1 decrease brightness (command+F1 changes display mode, option+F1 brings up display prefs)
F2 increase brightness (option+F2 brings up display prefs)
expos (F3 shows all windows, control+F3 shows app windows, option+F3 brings up expos prefs,
F3
command+F3 shows desktop)
F4 dashboard (option+F4 brings up expos prefs)
F5 decrease keyboard brightness for backlit keyboards (option+F5 brings up keyboard prefs)
F6 increase keyboard brightness for backlit keyboards (option+F6 brings up keyboard prefs)
F7 media navigation backwards (like hitting back on Apple Remote)
F8 media play/pause (like hitting play/pause on Apple Remote)
F9 media navigation forwards (like hitting next on Apple Remote)
F1
mute volume (option+F10 brings up sound prefs)
0
F1
decrease volume (option+shift+F11 for incremental decrease, option+F11 brings up sound prefs)
1
F1
increase volume (option+shift+F12 for incremental increase, option+F12 brings up sound prefs)
2

If you want to use these function keys for standard keyboard shortcuts, you must use the fn key, located in the lower-

left corner of the keyboard. For example, to use Spaces on these keyboards, you must press fn-F8; to shift between

all open windows in all applications, you must press ctrl-fn-F4; etc.

This behaviour can be altered in the Keyboard tab of the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, so that hardware

functions (like screen brightness) require pressing fn, and standard keyboard shortcuts (like Spaces) work without the

fn key.

Other nifty Mac OS X hints

How to use the built-in Dictionary

System-wide spell checker - in any app just control-click and go to spelling and mark check spelling as you

type (Note: Only available in native OS X applications, sometimes referred to as Cocoa applications)

How to create a zip file - highlight the items you want to include, control-click, and choose "Create Archive"

(or "Compress", if running on Leopard) from the menu

Drag files on Dock items - just drag files on Dock items to open these files with the app (pics to import on

iPhoto, pics on mail to send, etc.)

How to install applications - read this guide to installing applications in OS X


How to uninstall applications - just drag the application to the Trash. There might be leftovers in a) the

preference folder (just preferences that take up very little space) and b) the application support folder (may

contain bigger files to support the app) If you want to get rid of all the traces of an app just search for it in Finder,

or Spotlight if available, and delete everything. That's it. Simple as this.Or use uninstall tools like CleanGenius to

remove unneeded applications.

This tip requires

Mac OS X Tiger

Dictionary
Dictionary is a free application provided by Apple as part of Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). It provides both a dictionary,

based on the New Oxford American Dictionary, and a thesaurus, based on the Oxford American Writers Thesaurus.

The dictionary can also provide its "services" to other applications that wish to use the dictionary functionality.

Contents
[hide]

1 Accessing the Dictionary

2 Spell Checking

3 Screenshots

4 Guides

[edit]
Accessing the Dictionary

The dictionary can be accessed in several ways. You can:

Open the Dictionary application located in the Applications folder

Use the Dashboard Dictionary widget

Control-click a word and choose "Look Up in Dictionary"


Move the mouse over a word in a Cocoa application and press (by default) command-control-D to bring up a

"mini" dictionary, as described in the Tiger article.

[edit]
Spell Checking

Spell checking does not use the Dictionary. Instead, it uses its own custom dictionary, which stores spelling only and

not definitions. More information is available in the Mac OS X Spell Checker article.

[edit]
Screenshots

The "mini" dictionary in action:

Spell Checker
(Redirected from Mac OS X Spell Checker)

A spell checker is available in most Mac OS X applications, primarily those developed using the Cocoa framework. It

can be accessed using the Spelling submenu of the Edit menu or contextual menu when control-clicking a word. It

uses a separate dictionary from the Dictionary application.

[edit]
Custom words

If a word is added to the spell checker, then it is remembered in every application. For example, if you added the word

"MacRumors" to the spelling dictionary in TextEdit, it would also be recognized as correct spelling in other

applications.

[edit]
Suggestions

By pressing option-escape while typing a word, compatible Cocoa applications will provide a drop down menu of word

suggestions. This can also be achieved by pressing the F5 key.

[edit]
Limitations

As with all spell checkers, the Mac OS X spell checker can not determine if a word is used incorrectly. For example, "I

used there computer" would not be marked with incorrect spelling, even though "there" should be "their" in this case.

The Spilling Checker is a humorous look at the issues one might encounter when using a spell checker.

Dock
The Dock is an interactive list of all the applications currently running in Mac OS X. It also displays certain other

applications, files, folders, minimized windows and the Trash. It appears on the bottom or side of the Mac display at all

times (except when hidden).

[edit]
Customization

The Dock in Mac OS X Leopard with the glass effect

The Dock in Mac OS X Leopard without the glass effect

The Dock can also be customized to include any applications, files and folders. Currently running applications are

differentiated from non-running applications by a small black triangle pointing from the edge of the monitor to the

application's icon.

To add an item to the Dock, simply drag its icon onto the Dock. Applications must be dragged to the left or above the

line dividing the applications from the trash; all other items must be to the right or below it.

Note that this process does not physically copy the item -- the item remains in its original location.

To remove from the Dock, drag the icon away from the Dock and let it go. It will disappear in a very satisfying poof of

smoke (again, this does not remove the item from your computer; it remains in its original location).

You can rearrange items on the Dock by dragging them to their new location.

You can edit Dock settings by clicking on the Dock icon in System Preferences, by using the Dock submenu in the

Apple menu, or by control-clicking on the divider in the Dock. Settings include the location of the Dock, whether it

hides automatically, whether it magnifies the content under the mouse, and what size it is. If the Dock is hidden, you

can access it by moving your mouse to the side of the screen where it is located.
Another way to quickly resize the Dock is to click and hold on the divider between the applications and the

trash/documents, and drag up or down. When holding down the shift key while clicking and holding on the divider you

can quickly change the Dock's location by dragging it to the left, the right or to the bottom of the screen.

You can also quickly toggle between hiding and showing your dock by typing command-option-D.

Another way to customize the dock (in Mac OS X 10.5 only) is to change the look of it with a third party tool, such as

as Panic's Candybar 3.

[edit]
Operation

To run an application or open a file, click on its icon in the Dock. To access an item within a folder on the Dock, click

and hold to display the folder contents. Then navigate to the file or application you want.

You can also quit, hide, or show the location of any running application by clicking and holding on its icon in the Dock,

which displays a menu. If you hold down the option key while showing this menu, additional options will become

available, such as Force Quit. Many applications such as iTunes offer additional functionality by clicking and holding

their dock icons.

To open a file with a particular application (for example, to open a Microsoft Word Document using TextEdit), drag its

icon to the application's icon in the dock. If the icon does not highlight, but you want to force the application to try to

open the file anyway, hold down the command and option keys while you drag.

To delete a file, folder, or application, drag its icon to the Trash. To unmount or eject an iPod, CD, DVD, disk image, or

other device, drag its icon to the trash, which will change to an eject icon.

control-click
Control-clicking on a Mac is equivalent to right-clicking on a Mac or in Windows. Control-clicking usually shows a

menu at the location of the mouse cursor, known as a contextual menu.

To perform a control-click, hold down the control key on your keyboard (the one with "ctrl" or "control" written on it) and

click the mouse. If you are using a two button mouse then right-clicking has the same effect.

Some actions can only be performed with a control-click, however Apple's Human Interface Guidelines state that

every action that needs to be done should be able to be completed without needing to resort to using a contextual

menu

iPhoto 4.0 was released at Macworld San Francisco in January 2004, as part of the iLife '04 package. The version

number was no doubt changed to 4, not 3, to match the package title, which in turn matched the year of release.

iPhoto 4 claimed to support 25,000 image libraries with little decrease in speed, something that was a problem with

older iPhoto versions. iPhoto 4 also introduced the ability to share photos and copy them across your network, much

like iTunes but without the DRM, as well as performance enhancements, smart albums, photo rating, rendezvous

photo sharing, and improved slideshows.

Installing Applications in Mac OS X


Installing applications on Mac OS X is incredibly easy compared to most platforms. However, the approach taken can

be confusing at first for many users.

There are generally three basic steps when installing a piece of software; Acquire, Un-package, Install.

In addition to the instructions presented here, software publishers often provide additional notes with their software

that will tell you more about the installation of their products.

[edit]
Acquisition

First the software must be acquired. It could be downloaded from a Web site or stored on a CD.

Websites such as MacUpdate and VersionTracker can be particularly useful for finding software to download.

The Get Mac Apps tool is a useful first step to perform an automated installation of essential applications, before

proceeding with individual installations.

[edit]
Un-package

Before any software can be installed, it must first be un-packaged. If you are installing from a CD or some other kind

of disk then you can generally just insert the disk into your machine and skip this step.

In order to make a downloaded program smaller, software publishers often compress their programs by packaging

them in all manner of ways. Some of these are described below.

[edit]
ZIP files
Zip files are handled natively by OS X and should appear as in the picture below. To un-package a zip file, simply

double-click it and wait for OS X to open it.


[edit]
Stuffit files
No longer in widespread use, programs may be compressed with StuffIt. These files have a .sit or .sitx extension. Un-

packaging these files requires The Unarchiver or StuffIt Expander], which you will need to download if you are running

Mac OS X 10.4 or later, otherwise it should already be installed in your applications folder.

[edit]
Disk images
Disk images are probably the most commonly used method for packaging a program. A disk image can be thought of

as the virtual equivalent of a CD. The actual data in the disk image is contained within a single file which will look

something like this:

You then "insert," or "mount," the disk image into the machine by double-clicking the file. Having done this, the the

disk image will appear as another device in the Finder, as shown in the picture below:

Some disk images are `web-ready', i.e. when downloaded by Safari, they are automatically mounted, and their

contents are copied to the download folder (usually the user's Desktop). Then they are unmounted and moved to

Trash. The end result is that you have the application on your Desktop, and nothing else. Cool.

[edit]
Installation
The final step of the process is to actually install the software where you want it.

Software publishers will provide the installation of their software by one of two methods. They will either give you the

application bundle to install, or provide an installer. Both offer very easy installation.

[edit]
Application Bundles
Application bundles are generally used for smaller pieces of software, such as simple applications downloaded from

the Internet. Here, the software publisher has provided you with the actual program all you have to do is copy the

program to your desired location (usually your Applications folder) and run it. Copying the program is performed

simply by using drag and drop. An example of this is shown below:


[edit]
Installers
More complicated and involved applications such as Apple's iTunes will use an installer to simplify the installation

process for you. An installer typically looks something like this:

Simply double-click the installer to launch the installation program and follow the instructions presented to you.

[edit]
Post Installation

[edit]
Tidying Up
After you have finished installing the program you should remove the files used for the installation.

If a disk image was used in the installlation process, you should unmount it. This can be done by using the eject icon

next to to it in the Finder sidebar as if it were a CD. You can also drag the mounted disk icon to the the Trash, again

as if it were a CD.

All other files (including the disk image) can be simply discarded. Either place them in the Trash or back them up

somewhere in case you wish to re-install the application in the future.

[edit]
The Dock
If you want your newly installed software to appear in the Dock, simply drag the application's icon into the left side of

the Dock from wherever you have installed the Application. (If you followed the instructions above, it will be in the

Applications folder) Another way to add an application to the Dock is, if the program is currently running, control-click

its icon in the Dock and select "Keep In Dock" .

[edit]
Mac App Store

The Mac App Store is an application included with OS X 10.6.6 and later. Many free and paid apps can be installed

from the Mac App Store, where the publisher has chosen to use Apple's distribution platform.
Click Install and follow the prompt to sign in to the App Store with your Apple ID. If you are installing a paid app, the

cost will be charged to your Apple ID account.

The application will then begin downloading and appear in your Launchpad and /Applications folder. Once

downloaded you will be able to run the application.

Apps installed via the Mac App Store can be updated via the Updates section of the app. A badge will show on the

App Store icon to show updates are available.

Uninstalling Applications in Mac OS X


Uninstalling applications in Mac OS X is very different than uninstalling in a Microsoft Windows environment because

Mac OS X has nothing like the Windows Registry. While most Windows programs include an uninstaller that can be

run through using the Add/Remove Programs control panel, no such feature exists in Mac OS X and so most users
simply move application bundles (see below) to the Trash. However, often times there is more to uninstalling than a

simple drag-and-drop to the trash. This article will guide you on how to fully uninstall applications.

[edit]
Application Bundles

Control-click or RIght-click on any application to see if it is a bundle

Most Mac OS X applications (anything that ends in .app), like Safari and iTunes, are bundles. The application icon you

see in Finder (typically the Applications Folder) is usually a special folder itself, made to appear as a single double-

clickable file. These "folders" contain all, or at least most, of the files needed to run the application, ie they are self-

contained. This means that to uninstall these applications, you only have to drag them to the Trash. If you control-click

(or right-click) on an Application icon, and you see "Show Package Contents", then it is a bundle.
[edit]
Additional Files

Applications will leave behind preference files, and sometimes application support files, neither of which are stored in

application bundles. Preference files can be safely deleted, but they usually take up negligible disk space and, if

you decide to reinstall the application again later, keeping the preference file means your settings will still be there.

They are stored in the Preferences folder within your user's Library folder (~/Library/Preferences), or may also be

stored in the system-wide Library located at the root of the system volume (/Library/Preferences/).

Application support files can take up anywhere from a few kilobytes to several gigabytes of space, depending on the

application installed. Examples of applications that have large support files are multimedia programs such as

Garageband and DVD Studio Pro. They are located in the Application Support folder within your user's Library folder,

or in "/Library/Application Support/".

To remove an application's icon from the dock make sure that the program is not running at the time, then simply drag

the icon off of the dock and let go. There will be a puff of smoke animation and the icon will be gone. This will only

remove the dock icon/shortcut, and will not touch the application itself or any of its support files.

[edit]
Using Finder to remove Application Bundles and Additional Files

Using Finder to remove applications and all preference files

Adapted from a forum post by GGJstudios

To manually remove an application and all associated files:

Launch Activity Monitor and change "My Processes" at the top to "All Processes", then make sure the

app you want to remove is not running. If it is, quit the process before proceeding.

Launch Finder and search for the app name (hopefully unique, such as Skype)

You can narrow the search to specific folders or search your whole Mac

Searching "File Name" vs "Contents" usually provides better results.


Click the + button below the search term to add criteria

Click the search criteria drop-down and select "Other...", then "System files"

Click the "don't include" and change to "include"

Sort by name, kind, date, etc. to identify components of the app, such as folders, .plist files, cache files.

etc.

Delete all files and folders related to the app.

Don't empty your Trash until you've determined that everything is working OK, in case you need to

restore something you deleted by accident.

A reboot might be necessary to completely remove some apps.

[edit]
Applications with Installers/Uninstallers

If you ran an installer to install an application, you may wish to try running the installation program again to see

if an uninstall option is available at any point during installation (many times in a drop-down menu). Check the

installation CD or disk image for the original installer file. Some vendors have included simple Perl scripts that

will run in the command line to uninstall applications, and may be named "uninstaller.pl".

[edit]
Third Party Uninstallers

Be aware that third party uninstallers, including those listed below, do not completely remove all files/folders

associated with apps. Many will remove small files, such as .plist files, but leave behind much larger files. For

more information, read this. For complete removal of all files/folders associated with uninstalled apps, use

Finder and the manual method described above.

Caution is advised when using any automated method of deleting files, as such methods could result in files

being deleted that you didn't want deleted. Many have reported problems caused by the use of apps like

CleanMyMac and MacKeeper, so avoidance of these apps altogether may be wise.

Third party uninstallers exist which will search for these preference files for you, such as AppCleaner, AppTrap,

AppZapper, CleanApp and TrashMe, but these apps will not remove all components of installed apps.

Trash
The Trash is where any files that are deleted from the Finder in Mac OS X go to. They are kept here so that if you later

change your mind, the files can be rescued. If you are a switcher, then the Trash is equivalent to the Windows recycle

bin.

The Trash can be found at the right-hand end of the Dock (or the bottom, if the Dock is on the side of the display).

Click on it to see the contents of the Trash in the Finder.

[edit]
Empty or Not?

The Trash icon will change to show you whether it is empty or contains files, as seen in the pictures below:

[edit]
Deleting items

You delete files and folders by moving them to the Trash. You can:

Drag and drop a file on the trash icon in the dock

Control-click on a file and select "Move to Trash" from the menu

Select a file or files and use the keyboard shortcut: command-backspace


Select a file or files and choose "File > Move to Trash" from the menu bar

[edit]
Emptying The Trash

There are three ways to empty the trash. You can:

Control-click or click and hold on the trash icon in the Dock and choose "Empty Trash" from the menu that

appears

From anywhere in the Finder, choose "Finder > Empty Trash" from the menu bar

From anywhere in the Finder, use the keyboard shortcut command-shift-backspace.

Holding down the option key while doing any of the above will empty the trash without the warning dialog. It will also

usually force locked files to be deleted, something that normally would not happen.

Remember, you cannot recover an item after you empty the trash without a special utility, and this may not always

work, so use Empty Trash with care. Many Mac users only empty their trash when they notice that their system

appears to be slowing down when the trash occupies nearly the entire available hard drive space though waiting

till the trash gets that full is not necessarily advisable.

[edit]
Securely Emptying The Trash
If you are particularly concerned about security, then you can make items deleted from the trash absolutely un-

recoverable by choosing "Finder > Secure Empty Trash" from the menu bar.

[edit]
Rescuing Files From The Trash

If you have accidentally deleted a file or folder and wish to rescue it from the Trash, it is very easy to do (as long as

you have not emptied the Trash).

Open the Trash by clicking its icon in the Dock

Find the file(s) or folder(s) that you wish to rescue

Drag and drop them from out of the Trash to where you want them

Drag and drop


Drag and drop is a term used to describe moving an object on the computer screen with your mouse. It is done by

clicking and holding an object, such as a file, then moving the mouse (dragging), and releasing the mouse button

once the mouse cursor has reached its destination (dropping). Drag and drop has a number of uses, including:

Moving a window

Moving files between folders

Openings files in applications (by dragging a file to the application icon)

Moving or copying text between documents or applications

Saving images from a website (by dragging them to the Finder)

There are many other uses for drag and drop, and almost every Mac OS X application supports it.

control-click
(Redirected from Control-click)

Control-clicking on a Mac is equivalent to right-clicking on a Mac or in Windows. Control-clicking usually shows a

menu at the location of the mouse cursor, known as a contextual menu.

To perform a control-click, hold down the control key on your keyboard (the one with "ctrl" or "control" written on it) and

click the mouse. If you are using a two button mouse then right-clicking has the same effect.

Some actions can only be performed with a control-click, however Apple's Human Interface Guidelines state that

every action that needs to be done should be able to be completed without needing to resort to using a contextual

menu.

Menu bar
(Redirected from menu bar)

The menu bar resides at the top of the screen. It allows you to see which is the current active application and to

perform various commands. The different parts of the menu bar are described in this article.

[edit]
The Apple Menu

The Apple menu is found on the far left of the menu bar. It is always visible and provides access to a few system-wide

commands, preferences and recent items.

[edit]
Menu Extras

Menu Extras are found the far right of the menu bar. They are small, application-like icons or text that provide access

to certain functions. Typically, they are used to provide a shortcut to an exisitng application or service on your
machine, whereby you click on an item to bring up its menu. These are controlled by the SystemUIServer process, so

if it crashes and restarts, so will the menu extras.

A list of most of the Apple-supplied menu extras includes:

The Fast user switching menu

The Clock

The Script Menu

The battery level indicator

Displays

Volume control

iChat status

Sync status

VPN status

PPPoE status

The text input switcher

Remote Desktop status

PPP (modem) status

PC Card status

IrDA (infrared) connection status

Ink control

HomeSync menu (HomeSync appears not to be enabled as of Mac OS X 10.4.3)

The Fax menu


An eject button

The CPU menu (may require CHUD tools installed as part of developer tools)

Classic status and control (includes Apple Menu items from Classic environment)

Bluetooth menu

AirPort status and control

"Verizon.menu"

If the active application has more menus than can fit between the Apple menu and the menu extras, then some of the

menu extras will be hidden.

[edit]
Removing and Arranging Menu Extras
For most menu extras, you can remove them from the menu bar or re-arrange their ordering by holding the command

key and dragging the icon. To remove an item, drag it off the menu bar while holding down the command key.

Unfortunately, not all icons that appear in the menu bar are actually menu extras, and so will not move properly when

command-dragged. This includes the Spotlight menu, and most icons provided by 3rd party applications. 3rd party

applications typically use another mechanism, Status Items, which are immobile, rather than true Menu Extras, the

API for which is not public. This has not stopped several developers from reverse-engineering the Menu Extra API,

and so there are a limited number of full-fledged Menu Extras available from these developers.

The Spotlight menu is some other construct entirely, as it is immobile and does not work like any other menu or status

item; when clicked and held, menus will snap closed when released (this is how menus behaved all the time prior to

Mac OS 8, no matter how long they were held open). The Spotlight menu never snaps closed. However, the Spotlight

menu can be removed (with some caveats, such as the keyboard shortcuts for Spotlight not working) by following

these directions on macosxhints.com.

[edit]
Application Menus

Application menus are those menu items that the application you are using provides. It is almost entirely up to the

application what menus it provides, but as a general rule you can expect to find at least some of the following:

[edit]
The Application Menu
This is the first menu item provided. It is always present and is located next to the Apple menu. The title of this menu

will change to reflect what the current application is.

The Application menu is there for any commands that apply to the application as a whole. In the menu, you can often

expect to find:

"About" - displays a window with some information about the application, such as its version number

"Preferences" - brings up the application's preferences window

"Services" - a list of services that the system can provide you with for use in the application

"Hide" - hides the application

"Quit" - quits the application

You may often find other items in this menu, such as "Donate," " Check for Updates" & "Provide Feedback."

[edit]
File
Most applications provide a File menu and this lists commands for use with the current document in the application.

The file menu generally contains commands for:

Creating new windows

Saving

Opening documents

Closing documents

Printing

[edit]
Edit
Most applications have an Edit menu that allows you to perform some standard edit commands with text in the

application. The edit menu generally contains commands to:

Undo and Redo

Cut, Copy and Paste


Delete/Clear

"Select All"

"Find" text

Check spelling

Display the special characters palette

[edit]
Window
All applications should provide a Window menu. This contains commands for working with the windows of the

application, and generally contains:

Commands to "Minimize" and "Zoom" the frontmost window

Shortcuts to some of the most commonly used windows of the application

A command to bring all of the application's windows to the foreground

A list of all the windows belonging to the application

[edit]
Help
Some applications provide a Help menu that allows you to access any help files or documentation provided with the

application

[edit]
Others
Of course, there are plenty of other menus that may be provided by an application, such as "View," "Font,"

"Advanced" and "Format."

[edit]
Notes

Of note, is that next to every menu item, Mac OS X will display the keyboard shortcut for that command (if a shortcut

exists).

[edit]
Troubleshooting
Occasionally, the system part of the menu bar may lock up (the spinning wait cursor appears over such things as the

clock and the Airport signal strength meter. This indicates that the controlling process, the SystemUIServer, has

locked up. It may need to be force quitted via Activity Monitor or the Terminal.

One known cause of this lockup is trouble with iTunes while an iPod is plugged in to the firewire port. Simply

unplugging the iPod may cause the SystemUIServer to resume.

Fast user switching


Fast user switching allows the user to quickly switch between user accounts on their Mac. The advantage to this is

that it is fast and easy, but the disadvantage is that if a user is still logged on in the background all their current

applications still running will use computer power.

Script Menu
The Script Menu can be added as a Menu Extra to allow easy access to many AppleScript scripts from the menu bar

(Mac OS X ships with several scripts that are ready to use to accomplish some common tasks). You can also add

your own scripts to this menu.

To enable the Script Menu, run AppleScript Utility (located at /Applications/AppleScript/AppleScript Utility) and check

the "Show Script Menu in menu bar" checkbox.

The Script Menu provides access to the contents of the following folders that are usually used to store AppleScript

files:

/Library/Scripts/ - the system level Scripts folder that contains scripts that all users can use

~/Library/Scripts/ - the user level Scripts folder that contains scripts that the current user can use

Generally, each application that has scripts will have a subfolder in one of these folders, which is seen as a submenu

in the Script Menu.

You may already know that AppleScript can be used in conjunction with Automator - so whenever you use Automator

and get stuck while trying to find something that will accomplish what you want to do, you should check what's

available in the existing set of AppleScript scripts and see if executing those scripts as an action within your Automator

Workflow could help.

Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a standard for wireless connection of electronic devices and peripherals. It is designed to be small and

easily intergrated so that it can be used in smaller devices and consume less power. The down side of this is that its

transfer rates are relatively slow compared to other wireless technologies. Bluetooth uses radio-frequency signals and

does not require a 'line of sight' that its predecessor, infra-red did.

Versions

[edit]
Bluetooth 1.x
Bluetooth 1.x covers all the older versions of Bluetooth. Virtually every current Bluetooth-enabled device today

supports Bluetooth 1.x. Speeds range from 1 Mbps down.

[edit]
Bluetooth 2.0
Bluetooth 2.0 is a recently introduced update to the bluetooth standard. It allows for datarates up to 3 times faster than

the original Bluetooth standard, with the maximum theoretical being 3 Mbps. It is completely backward-compatable

with Bluetooth 1.x devices.

Very few devices currently shipping sport Bluetooth 2.0, however Apple's current laptops - PowerBooks and iBooks -

do.

[edit]
Devices

Many different kinds of devices can be Bluetooth enabled. Generally, they fall into one of these categories:
Computers

Mobile Phones and headsets for them

Human interface devices, such as computer mice and keyboards

Printers

[edit]
Mobile Phones
Many of todays cell/mobile phones include bluetooth for transfers of media files (MP3's, photo's, videos) and for

sychronisation purposes (Calanders, Contacts, emails) Some phone makes and models are known to have 'better'

bluetooth implementation, with some including basic support for file transfers and others allowing full sychronisation

through iSync. It is always worth researching before buying to avoid dissapointment. As an example, most Samsung

phones do not allow for Java applications or games to be transferred via bluetooth where as Sony Ericsson have

excellent bluetooth support that is usually fully complete and compatible with Apple Macs.

AirPort is a device that can be installed in many different model Macintosh systems for adding Wi-Fi networking

according to the 802.11b standard, providing up to 11Mbps of bandwidth.

This device was discontinued in June, 2004. Original AirPort cards have become quite expensive to acquire and can

go as high as $90(US) on online stores such as eBay.

[edit]
AirPort Extreme

AirPort Extreme is Apple's trademarked name for Wi-Fi networking according to the 802.11g standard, which provides

up to 54Mbps of bandwidth.

AirPort Extreme was updated in January 2007 and features a new design, 802.11Draft-n support, USB support for

hard disks and more.

In October 2009 AirPort Extreme was updated to the 802.11n (Final-N) standard.

On June 21, 2011, Apple unveiled the updated AirPort Extreme Base Station.

Compared to its predecessor, it has achieved a great wireless performance gains of both speed and range.

Buyers Guide
Recommendation: Buy Now! Product just updated

Last Release: June 21, 2011

You must be very careful and check the model number before the purchase!

The model number of the current generation Airport Extreme Base Station: MD031LL/A

A lot of sellers are using the fact that Airport Extreme from different generation looks very similar to each other:

they are still selling old Airport Extreme, which are inferior to new Airport Extreme, at the same price!

For example, Draft-N Airport Extreme is compatible with Final-N devices, but might be incompatible with other

Draft-N devices.

And every generation of Airport Extreme has improvements in both speed and range, if compared with older

AirPort Hardware

Nearly all Macintoshes sold after the introduction of AirPort include either a built-in interface, or a slot where a

user can add an interface.

Earlier Macs include an AirPort slot, while later models include an AirPort Extreme slot.

Macs equipped with AirPort and AirPort Extreme slots have a built-in antenna, which attaches to the interface

card.

[edit]
AirPort interface
The original AirPort interface card resembles a PC Card device and has a very similar form factor.

The card can physically fit in an actual PCMCIA slot, and PC Cards can fit in an AirPort slot, but the electrical

interface is not idenetical.

AirPort cards do not work in PCMCIA slots, and third-party PC cards usually do not work in a Mac's AirPort slot.

[edit]
AirPort Extreme interface
The AirPort Extreme card has a different form factor from the original AirPort card. It is a Mini PCI card, rather

than PCMCIA.

As a result, you can not put an AirPort Extreme interface in a Mac that has an AirPort slot.

[edit]
Base stations
Along with interface cards, Apple has released several different base stations.

These attach to an Ethernet network and allow computers with 802.11b/g networking capability (not just those

with AirPort interfaces) to access the network.

In addition to basic Wi-Fi LAN access, several models also include a 56k modem, to accommodate users of

dial-up internet access.

Some models include a USB port, to allow printer sharing without dedicating a computer to act as server.

In January 2007, Apple released a new Airport Extreme with Wireless n support, it has a USB port to allow

printer sharing or network file access, it also supports parental controls.

In August 2007[1] the Airport Extreme was updated to add Gigabit Ethernet Support.

[edit]
AirPort Express

AirPort Express ("AirMac Express" in Japan)

AirPort Express is a small-scale portable AirPort Extreme base station. It can be used to either provide wireless

access to an Ethernet LAN, or to extend a LAN via a Wi-Fi segment. It includes a USB port for printer sharing

and an audio-out port, allowing computers running iTunes to stream audio over the LAN via AirTunes. Unlike the

full-sized AirPort Extreme Base Station, AirPort Express only supports 10 clients at a time.

Some features, like WDS and bridging (mentioned above) will only work in conjunction with other Apple

Extreme/Express Base stations. AirPort Express can operate in "client mode" on any 802.11b/g network,

however. In this mode, the base station can join a third-party access point and just provide wireless audio and

print serving features. More on client mode can be found here.

While the USB port cannot be used for any data connections besides printers, it has been reported that an iPod

with a USB 2.0 cable can charge through the AirPort Express's USB port.

Time Capsule

Time Capsule

The Time Capsule is a wireless network-attached storage device combined with a wireless residential gateway

router made by Apple Inc.

It is described as a "Backup Appliance", designed to work in tandem with the Time Machine backup utility,

introduced in Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard".

The device includes a full AirPort Extreme Base Station with 802.11n wireless (now with Dual Band Support), an

Ethernet WAN port, three Ethernet LAN ports, and one USB port. There is also a "Server grade" hard drive

inside the casing. Time Capsule was introduced at Macworld Conference & Expo on January 15, 2008 and

released on February 29, 2008, with pricing announced at US$299 (199) for the 500 GB version and US$499

(329) for the 1 TB version.

The USB port can be used for an external hard drive or a printer to be shared over the network. In early 2009,

Apple released a newer model offering simultaneous 802.11n dual-band operation to allow older devices to use

the slower wireless speeds without affecting the overall performance of devices that can use the higher 802.11n

speeds.

Also released in this new version is Guest Networking which allows guests to sign on with a different password

to ensure your private network is kept private.

In July 2009, Apple doubled the hard-disk storage space that comes with each model. The $299 Time Capsule

now holds 1TB (instead of 500GB) and the $499 configuration holds 2TB (instead of 1TB). Also by reconfiguring

the internal wireless antenna Apple reported 50% better performance and 25% better wireless range on the

fourth generation model.

Apple again increased the hard-disk storage space in each model in June 2011. The 2TB Time Capsule is now

being sold for $299 (replacing the 1TB model) and the new 3TB model sells for $499.

IEEE 802.11
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

IEEE 802.11 is a set of medium access control (MAC) and physical layer (PHY) specifications
for implementing wireless local area network (WLAN) computer communication in the 2.4, 3.6,
5 and 60 GHz frequency bands. They are created and maintained by the IEEE LAN/MAN
Standards Committee (IEEE 802). The base version of the standard was released in 1997 and has
had subsequent amendments. The standard and amendments provide the basis for wireless
network products using the Wi-Fi brand. While each amendment is officially revoked when it is
incorporated in the latest version of the standard, the corporate world tends to market to the
revisions because they concisely denote capabilities of their products. As a result, in the market
place, each revision tends to become its own standard.

Preferences File
Preferences for all applications and system software components are stored in a file in a Preferences folder, usually

as plist files (plist is short for 'Property List'). They are used in all versions of Mac OS X.

A preference file

The files contain a list of parameters that programs and system software use to define saved preferences. For

example, the com.apple.dock.plist file contains a line enabling the dock to be hidden or permanently on. Sometimes a

preferences files includes settings that cannot be edited using the programs 'Preferences' options and can only be

modified using the Terminal or other editor.

Sometimes if a program is not behaving as it should, or refuses to run at all, deleting the preferences file can fix the

problem. If a preferences file is damaged or corrupted a program may not be able to continue and by removing it the

program will create a fresh file with the default settings. This will cause your preferences to be lost, which might

include information like a serial number or other important settings. If you suspect a faulty preferences file, it is

recommended that you make a back up of the file before deleting it.

2 Editing Plist files

[edit]
Formats

There are three plist formats in use. All are functionally equivalent, and it is up to each program to decide which one it

will use.

[edit]
ASCII
The OpenStep plist format is still occasionally seen under OS X. It uses a different bracket style for each data type,

and may be altered with a regular text editor. See Old-Style ASCII Property Lists at Apple. The main advantage of this

format is that it can be used with older OpenStep software.

[edit]
XML
With OS X came a move to a new XML plist format. It can also be modified with an editor such as TextEdit, and has

the advantage that it can be read using existing non-Apple libraries. See XML Property Lists at Apple for details.

[edit]
Binary
Starting with Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar), and seen frequently in 10.4 (Tiger), there is also a binary plist format. While it

cannot easily be manipulated with a plain text editor, it is useful in programs that need to retain large amounts of data.

[edit]
Editing Plist files

To make changes in plist files, it is recommended to use one of the following:

In Terminal using the defaults command.

Overview

Spotlight is a real-time data indexing feature introduced in Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). Typing a search string shows files

on the indexed drives that contain the search string in the filename or, with many supported file types, within the

document itself.

By default, the Spotlight menu is displayed by clicking the magnifying glass icon on the far right side of the menu bar

or by typing command-space. This will activate the small menu window, and search results will be listed directly below.
The Spotlight window can be opened by selecting Show All from the Spotlight menu or by typing command-option-

space; this window gives you more control over your search and more information than the menu. You may change

these access keys in the Spotlight Preference Pane.

Spotlight is a system-wide feature, but is also integrated into specific applications. Currently, Finder, Mail, and

Address Book include application-specific Spotlight searches. Spotlight automatically indexes text inside plain- and

rich-text files as well as PDFs. Application developers can write Spotlight plugins to enable Spotlight content indexing

of their file formats; Microsoft has developed a Word plugin and the OmniGroup offers one for OmniOutliner

documents.

[edit]
Additions in Leopard
Spotlight received a number of additional features in Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard):

Search other machines if you have permission

Specify file types when searching

Addition of recent items

[edit]
Handy Keyboard Shortcuts

Here are some handy keyboard shortcuts for the Spotlight Menu.

Hold down the command key to jump to the top "Top Hit", versus "Show All". So, you can hit command-return

to open the top hit automatically - similar to Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" button

Use command- and command- to scroll through the top hits of each category

Use control- and control- to jump to the top and bottom of the list

Use command-click to reveal the item in Finder rather than opening it (if it is an application or a document).

[edit]
History

Spotlight has its functional origins in Copland, an Operating System originally developed in 1994, under the leadership

of Gil Amelio, then CEO of Apple. Copland was never released, but some features have found their way, over the

years, into Mac OS and Mac OS X. Copland had the first live search, but wasn't fully matured.

Mac OS 9 and pre-Tiger versions of Mac OS X did include limited content searching in Sherlock and the Finder, but

this search was not as fast, flexible, or comprehensive as Spotlight's content searching.

Some consider Tiger's Spotlight to be one of the first fully matured search engines in an operating system.

Adding filetypes to Spotlight

Index c and c++ header files

1. Open Terminal

2. Type this:

mdimport -f /usr/include
mdimport -f /usr/local/include
mdimport -f /System/Library/Frameworks

Repairing a faulty Spotlight index


To repair a faulty Spotlight index, take the following steps

1. Open System Preferences and click Spotlight

2. Click the Privacy tab

3. Drag a folder or hard drive list into Spotlight window

4. Remove the folder or hard drive that was just added

This will cause Spotlight to clear the existing index and begin re-indexing the folder or hard drive.

Note that you may only be able to drag folders into the privacy panel if they reside on Macintosh-formatted (HFS+)

disks. Doing so with Windows (FAT, NTFS) disks is not yet supported. Additionally, if Spotlight is currently "busy", you

won't be able to add folders. Check the Activity Monitor for mdimport.

Moving Email from PC Outlook to Apple Mail


This is a common question asked by Windows switchers, and the solution isn't as easy as it should be. There are

several methods each with their own pros and cons. Choose the one that best meets your needs.

1 IMAP

2 8Convert

3 O2M - Little Machines

4 Thunderbird

5 Outlook Express

[edit]
IMAP

An easy (and free) way to transfer email from Outlook (Windows) to Mail (Mac) is to use an IMAP account (e.g. Gmail)

as an intermediary between the two. It's simple and reliable but can be a bit slow for large amounts of email. Expect

over an hour per Gigabyte.

1. Enable IMAP on your email account. [1]

2. In Windows, open Outlook and add your IMAP account. [2]


3. Copy the folders (don't drag and drop them) from your PST file into your IMAP account. Drag and drop will

move (not copy) your folders and you may lose mail if the communication is interrupted during the move.

4. On the Mac, open Mail and add your IMAP account. [3]

5. If you want your mail stored on your Mac, you can copy it from your IMAP account to mailboxes created by

selecting "On My Mac" as the location in the new mailbox dialog inside the Mail application.

[edit]
8Convert

For an easy migration, you can use Eight Hoof's 8Convert program ($14 shareware), which runs on your PC and

directly exports files for use with Apple Mail. The userguide gives instructions on everything from install to file copying

to importing into Apple Mail.

The program exports Outlook data to industry-standard mbox, vCard, and iCal formats that can be imported into

Apple's Mail, Contacts, and Calendar programs, as well as compatible programs such as Entourage.

[edit]
O2M - Little Machines

This program runs on Windows to convert your Outlook email, contacts, and calendars--which you can take to your

Mac, and then import them into your Mac programs. It's pretty simple to use, however it doesn't work with Outlook

Express. Little Machines' Website

[edit]
Thunderbird

This alternative is free, mostly automated (no renaming of folders) but it requires a separate application, i.e.

Thunderbird.

1. Install Thunderbird. On first launch, tell it to import from Outlook (not Outlook Express).

2. It will import account settings, contacts and email.

3. Copy your Thunderbird profile (XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<your

userid>\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\<your profile>.default,


Vista/7: C:\Users\<your userid>\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\<your

profile>.default) to your Mac. Several methods can be used to perform the copy operation:

1. If both computers are on the same network, file sharing can be used.
2. If the computers are NOT on the same network, the fastest approach is to zip-compress the profile

folder in Windows, put it on an external storage device, bring the device to your Mac, connect it,

and decompress the zip file.

4. Start the Mail application and go to File > Import.

5. Select Thunderbird and point it to the profile folder you copied to your Mac. The imported mail will be under

"On My Mac".

6. To be safe, you can go to "Mailbox > Rebuild" inside Mail to make sure there's no corruption resulting from

the import.

[edit]
Outlook Express

This option can be done without the need for installing additional software on your PC but it will require Entourage (or

Outlook) on your Mac which you may not have.

1. Open Outlook Express on your PC.

2. Highlight all mail in a folder e.g. "important mail", and drag them into a any folder on your hard drive (ideally -

outlook mail/important). Having Outlook run in window mode (not fullscreen) and dragging the mail to a

folder on your desktop seems to be the easiest way, because you don't have to switch windows.

3. Make as many folders and fill them this way as you have/need, then copy them to your Mac.

4. Start Entourage (or Outlook) on your Mac (if you have either of them).

5. Drag them into a folder the same way as you exported them on your pc.

6. Now you should have the mail in Entourage.

7. Mail can now import mailboxes from Entourage.

Once you've imported all your email into the Mail application, you can delete all the other email from your

desktop/Outlook/Entourage to save space.

Formats

Different versions of OS X have different formats for screenshots.

Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar): jpg

Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther): pdf

Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and later: png

In Mac OS X 10.4 and later, the default screenshot format can be changed, by opening Terminal (located at

/Applications/Utilities/Terminal) and typing in:

defaults write com.apple.screencapture type image_format


killall SystemUIServer

Where image_format is one of jpg, tiff, pdf, png, bmp or pict (among others). If you omit the second line, you will need

to log out and in again for the change to take effect.

[edit]
Changing Screenshot Options

Various other screenshot settings can also be changed via the Terminal, listed below. These commands must be

followed by the following command for them to take effect:

killall SystemUIServer

Setting Key Parameters Example

[edit]
Grab and Preview

Instead of using the keyboard shortcuts above, screenshots can be taken by using the Grab application included with

OS X. It is located at /Applications/Utilities/Grab.

Preview can also be used to take screenshots, by using the "Take Screen Shot" submenu in the File menu.

[edit]
From the Terminal

The screencapture command in the Terminal can also be used to capture screenshots, and is useful for scripts. Here

is an example.

screencapture -iW ~/Desktop/screen.jpg

[edit]
From Other Applications

In Snow Leopard and later, screenshots can be embedded automatically in text editing areas of most applications,

such as Mail and TextEdit. Right-click (or control-click) in the text area, choose "Capture Selection from Screen", and

select an area of the screen. Alternatively, this command can be selected from the Services menu in the application

menu. The screenshot will be inserted at the current cursor location.

Although only "Capture Selection from Screen" is provided by default, other commands can be added for inserting

screenshots of the whole screen, or of the whole screen using a timer. To add these (as of Mountain Lion), go to

System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services, and check the corresponding commands in the

Pictures section. Keyboard shortcuts can also be added. Note that these changes may not take effect immediately in

all applications.

[edit]
Third Party Applications
There are a huge number of third party applications that can be used to take screenshots. Several popular ones are

listed below:

Jing Great for screen shots, video recording and has an extremely useful online sharing feature.

Snapz Pro X is very popular and can even record movies. It has a large range of features, and is shareware.

SnapNDrag is also popular and offers several features in addition to those offered by the default screen

capture tools. With SnapNDrag, users take a screenshot, then drag it to their destination. SnapNDrag is freeware,

but also has a pro version.

Screen Mimic is shareware that can be used to record animations of your desktop to .swf files for tutorials,

software demonstrations, etc.

Duplicates finder

Duplicates function helps you remove the duplicated files at the specified location.
Duplicated files may have different file names and lurk in different folders, but they have the
identical contents.
The steps:

1. Lanuch EaseUS CleanGenius. Go to Duplicates. Click "Circle" icon. Choose the


location you want to scan. Or drag the specific folder to it.
2. After the scan, the bundles of duplicated files will be sorted by file types. Tick the
unneeded duplicates.
3. Click Remove button.

Note:

Highlight the file. Clicking the Eye at the bottom right corner will open the file.
Clicking Magnifier will browse the file in Finder.

After clean, a copy of duplicate files will remain by default. You can also manually
keep the copies you want. To accomplish this, click the triangle icon before the duplicates
bundle to unfold it. Tick and remove the files you do not need.

At step 2, choosing smaller folder to scan can increase the speed of process.

App uninstaller
Generally, you can go to Finder -> Applications, drag the application to Trash and uninstall
it. But some application files still remain in this way, such as preference file and support file.
For example, the plist file in the ~/Libraray/Preferences/ directory. You can safely clean these
files to reclaim your hard disk space.

The Uninstall function of EaseUS CleanGenius will delete the files belong to the application.
For example, the files in the ~/Library/Preferences and ~/Library/Application Support
directory will be deleted when EaseUS CleanGenius uninstall certain application.

Active: The used memory for the running system and application processes.

Inactive: The used memory for cache purpose. It stores the information of quitted
applications. If you rerun those applications, they will be launched notably faster.

The Mac OS X does not release Inactive memory until free memory runs out. When free
memory is not enough for the fresh application you launched, OS will release part of inactive
memory for new demand. If the application requires additional memory during running, this
convert will continue. Such mechanism causes the new application would run very slowly.
EaseUS CleanGenius provides a perfect solution. When you notice the free memory is
insufficient, you can manually Free inactive memory for your new demands.

The steps:
1. Launch EaseUS CleanGenius. Go to Free Memory.

2. Check memory usage in the visualizer, especially the value of Free and Inactive.

5. If you want your mail stored on your Mac, you can copy it from your IMAP account to mailboxes created by

selecting "On My Mac" as the location in the new mailbox dialog inside the Mail application.

8Convert

For an easy migration, you can use Eight Hoof's 8Convert program ($14 shareware), which runs on your PC and

directly exports files for use with Apple Mail. The userguide gives instructions on everything from install to file copying

to importing into Apple Mail.

The program exports Outlook data to industry-standard mbox, vCard, and iCal formats that can be imported into

Apple's Mail, Contacts, and Calendar programs, as well as compatible programs such as Entourage.

O2M - Little Machines

This program runs on Windows to convert your Outlook email, contacts, and calendars--which you can take to your

Mac, and then import them into your Mac programs. It's pretty simple to use, however it doesn't work with Outlook

Express. Little Machines' Website

[edit]
Thunderbird

This alternative is free, mostly automated (no renaming of folders) but it requires a separate application, i.e.

Thunderbird.

1. Install Thunderbird. On first launch, tell it to import from Outlook (not Outlook Express).

2. It will import account settings, contacts and email.

3. Copy your Thunderbird profile (XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<your

userid>\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\<your profile>.default,


Vista/7: C:\Users\<your userid>\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\<your

profile>.default) to your Mac. Several methods can be used to perform the copy operation:

1. If both computers are on the same network, file sharing can be used.

2. If the computers are NOT on the same network, the fastest approach is to zip-compress the profile

folder in Windows, put it on an external storage device, bring the device to your Mac, connect it,

and decompress the zip file.

4. Start the Mail application and go to File > Import.


5. Select Thunderbird and point it to the profile folder you copied to your Mac. The imported mail will be under

"On My Mac".

6. To be safe, you can go to "Mailbox > Rebuild" inside Mail to make sure there's no corruption resulting from

the import.

[edit]
Outlook Express

This option can be done without the need for installing additional software on your PC but it will require Entourage (or

Outlook) on your Mac which you may not have.

1. Open Outlook Express on your PC.

2. Highlight all mail in a folder e.g. "important mail", and drag them into a any folder on your hard drive (ideally -

outlook mail/important). Having Outlook run in window mode (not fullscreen) and dragging the mail to a

folder on your desktop seems to be the easiest way, because you don't have to switch windows.

3. Make as many folders and fill them this way as you have/need, then copy them to your Mac.

4. Start Entourage (or Outlook) on your Mac (if you have either of them).

5. Drag them into a folder the same way as you exported them on your pc.

6. Now you should have the mail in Entourage.

7. Mail can now import mailboxes from Entourage.

Once you've imported all your email into the Mail application, you can delete all the other email from your

desktop/Outlook/Entourage to save space.

Before you Begin...

Since Panther, Mac OS X comes with a pretty sophisticated network discovery tool that allows other computers

and printers to become accessible with virtually no configuration whatsoever, particularly in an existing home or

office environment where shares and printers have already been set up. Before following the rest of this guide,

which may be quite technical for the novice, see if it's even necessary.

[edit]
Remote Computers

In the Finder, click on the Network icon in the upper left of a finder window
Wait a few moments.

You should see Workgroups or Computers begin to appear.

Click on one of these, and it should ask for a username and password.

If successful, the remote computer's share will be visible as a mounted volume

[edit]
Remote Printers

From the Print dialog, access the Printer->Bonjour Printers menu item

A list of networked printers should appear. Select one and OS X will attempt to create a configuration for it

If successful, you should be able to print to the remotely networked printer.

If the above simple approach did not work, it probably just means the network needs to be set up. Use the rest

of this article as a guide to accomplish this task, which should only need to be done once.

[edit]
Information you will need to know

The IP Address of both your Mac and PC

The workgroup the PC is in (Right click on My Computer and select Properties, then click the Computer

Name tab)

[edit]
System Configuration

It is important that the account you log in with on your XP system has a password set, if it does not you will not

be able to login to your Windows share from OS X.

You need to put your Mac in the same workgroup as your Windows PC. To do this open Directory Access

(Applications > Utilities > Directory Access). Click on the padlock in the bottom left corner to make changes; you

will be prompted for your password. If SMB is not checked, then check it. Select SMB and hit the

Configure button. Now enter the name of your Windows workgroup. In my case the name is AD.
[edit]
Setting up the PC to share files

You need to create and share a folder on your PC that you will then access from your Mac. To do this create a

folder (or select and existing one) right click on it from Windows Explorer and select Properties. Select the

Sharing tab and share out the folder. Id recommend you use a one word name for the share. For example

mac, not Apple Mac Share, it just narrows the risk of complications.
[edit]
Setting up the Mac to share files

Open System Preferences (Applications > System Preferences). Go to Sharing under Internet & Network,

and check Windows Sharing, and if it doesnt start by itself, click Start. This will share out your entire home

folder.
If you're running Tiger (10.4), you will also need to click the "Accounts" button and check the box next to your

account name so that OS X knows to share out your particular home folder.
[edit]
Accessing your Mac from your PC

Click Start > Run and enter \\192.168.1.2\edesignuk, replacing the IP address with the IP address of your

Mac, and edesignuk with the short user name of your account in OS X. When asked to authenticate enter your

Mac accounts short user name and password. All being well you should now be able to see you entire home

folder on your OS X system. You can also map this share like you would any other Windows network share so

that it is accessible from a drive letter.

[edit]
Using WinSCP
In some cases it can be difficult to access your Mac directly from your PC. If instead you enable Remote Login

on your Mac, in Sharing under Internet & Network then you can use WinSCP to access your Mac from your

PC by typing in the IP address and username/password as before.

[edit]
Accessing your PC from your Mac

To mount a Windows share on your Mac, click on your desktop so that Finder is the active application, from the

Finder menu go to Go > Connect to Server. In the Server Address field enter smb://192.168.1.3/mac,

replacing the IP address with the IP address of your PC, and mac with the name of the Windows share you

created earlier.

When asked to authenticate enter the name of your PC in Workgroup/Domain (Unless your PC is part of a

domain and your PC account is held on a domain controller, in which case enter the domain that you normally

log on to Windows with). For Username and Password enter the username and password which you use to

log on to your Windows machine with. Click ok and your shared folder should be mounted as a network drive on

your desktop.
[edit]
Windows Server 2003 Authentication

By default Windows Server 2003 will try to encrypt everything sent to and from it. With this enabled you will not

be able to log in to the share from your Mac.

To fix this there are a couple of options.

Case 1, your server is nothing more than a regular file server. In this case open up regedit (Start > Run >

"regedit" {return}), and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \

LanManServer \ Parameter \ RequireSecuritySignature, and set it's value to "0".

Case 2, your server is also a Domain Controller. In which case you need to open the DC's Security Policy

(Administrative Tools > Domain Controller Security Policy). Navigate to Local Policies > Security Options, and

disable "Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (always)" & "Microsoft network server: Digitally

sign communications (if client agrees)". Reboot your sever, and you should be good to go.
