  1. I just joined the Apple Ecosystem after being an android user all my life and omg you have saved me from losing my mind trying to figure out how to navigate this laptop. Very helpful Thank You so much!!!!

  2. Quick question for You. On the right hand side of the computer screen there was an icon that looked like an external hard drive. But it had the Mac Time Machine Logo on it. My question is : How did You create that Logo on that icon????

  3. The Printer on desktop is a great tip, but it is a bit easier to just type command + P with the file selected and the same thing will happen with no dragging and no printer on the desktop.

    Great tips! usually I avoid these videos because most of them are "the Mac has a control center" or "look… widgets." This tip video is THE BEST tip video I have ever watched for Mac OS and I definitely implemented several of the tips right after I picked my jaw back up off the floor!

  4. one I noticed that was missing, and I think maybe because Quinn likes "Hide" more than "Minimize" when tabbing through the "Command + Tab" menu if you have a window minimized for a specific app, holding down "Option" when you let go of the "Command" key will un-minimize the window for that app from the dock.

  5. Thank you for your videos! You're such a great resource for me in my switch to wonderful M1 hardware with an unexpectedly difficult OS to learn! By the way, I think this video could also be appropriately entitled 150+ reasons why it's needlessly difficult to become a power user in macOS. Or ~100 keyboard shortcuts you'll probably never remember because …was that shift+cmd+Ctrl or was that cmd+option or was it fn+shift+cmd+Ctrl??????? Or 150+ reasons Apple was smoking crack while designing macOS keyboard shortcuts and other reasons you need expensive 3rd party apps to make your OS work in a logical and simpler way. By the way, my wife, a loving and loyal Mac user, said "you're right" for the first time ever when I complained today about macOS keyboard shortcuts being so illogical. There is that for me to be appreciative about. Hopefully this made you smile.
