“There are so many different ways to get things done using a Mac and I hope this selection of useful tips will offer most Mac users at least one or two features you may not have encountered before,” Jonny Evans reports for Computerworld.
• Command-Space: The keyboard shortcut that gets you to Spotlight search for those times you don’t want to speak to Siri.
• Quick conversion: To get a quick conversion just launch Spotlight and type the figure you want to convert, $100 or 76Kg, for example.
• Split Screen view: When resizing the windows when using Split Screen view, just hold down the Option key and you will be able to see both windows clearly while you do.
