100 Things Every Mac User Should Know
We all like to think we're pretty savvy when it comes to using our Macs. In the case of the typical Macworld reader, that's usually true. (You're all unusually handsome and have wonderful singing voices too.) But there's a funny thing we've noticed when we talk to Mac users, even the supposedly savvy ones: There's often some essential information — basic things that would make their Mac use easier or more efficient — that they've either forgotten or never learned.

About This Superguide:
Macworld's collection of 100 things every Mac user should know is now available in Apple's iBookstore as a $0.99 e-book.
We all like to think weâre pretty savvy when it comes to using our Macs. In the case of the typical Macworld reader, thatâs usually true. (Youâre all unusually handsome and have wonderful singing voices too.) But thereâs a funny thing weâve noticed when we talk to Mac users, even the supposedly savvy ones: Thereâs often some essential informationâbasic things that would make their Mac use easier or more efficientâthat theyâve either forgotten or never learned.
So we got some Macworld editors and contributors together and asked ourselves: What are the things that every Mac user should know how to do? We didnât meant the really basic stuffâCommand-C, Command-V, and so onâbut the skills and knowledge that mark you as Mac-literate. And we came up with a list of 100 things that seemed to fit that bill. They range from customizing your Macâs boot-up sequence to shutting down unresponsive apps. In between, they cover Finder navigation, launching apps, keyboard shortcuts, Spotlight, PDFs, user accounts, and much much more. (Our one rule: None of these things could require third-party tools; weâre talking only about stuff you can do with OS X itself.)
