    MacBook Help

    I'm a PC person, and there are alot of things about Macs that I have no idea how to use. Could somebody type up stuff I should know about Macs and how to use them?

    Also, this is a MacBook, and there isn't a print screen button. Can somebody help?

    (: It may seem to you that it's very hard, but once you get used to mac, you'll feel strange in windows !! :D
    soo - you know how to install-uninstall (drag the .dmg file in your applications folder),?
    umm basically the curvy button next to the alt is mac's equivalent of ctrl, so when you want ex. to paste (windows - ctrl-v) in mac you use that button + v instead.

    If you have a newer macbook, while on the desktop, pressing f8 is really
    useful for me, it opens 4 desktops, so
    you could arrange your open windows as you like on 4 desktops, gives
    you more space.

    In safari, the nicest shortcuts are (ehh don't know it's name!)
    curvybutton + T -open a new tab,
    curvybutton + click - opens the link you clicked on in a new tab,
    and curvy + N - opens a whole new safari window.

    I'm 2 lazy 4 more now... (:

    Basically the difference with windows
    comes mainly from the design of the graphic system,
    but a mac does the same things as a computer (:

    Re: MacBook Help

    what kind of macbook do you have?

    the best shortcuts for print screening are Command+Shift+3
    and Command+Shift+4, this one changes your cursor, then you can click and drag a segment of your screen that you want to capture, all images will be saved to the desktop as Picture #
