About This Class

Learn to Move Around Mac OS X, Discover untapped features to speed up your workflow and  Automate Common Tasks!

Are you overwhelmed by thousands upon thousands of videos on youtube about how to use your Mac?

Learn your Mac in under an Hour?

Learn tips and tricks in 10 minutes or less? Sounds familiar?

I know because I have been there too.

Now you and I know perfectly well that to learn a skill takes time and energy. But it doesn't have to be a burden.

The course addresses many common and uncommon questions, but most importantly, one in particular: How do I use My Mac efficiently for professional endeavours and make it a trusted tool for my work and personal life?

I start by showing you some essential functions so that you are comfortable exploring the rest by yourself and learn some unique features and techniques to speed up your work.

I'll guide you through various ways to organise your desktop to make it easy to use.

You are not going to learn just shortcuts. You'll master many ways to manipulate your text, take screenshots the way you want, use Siri and Dictation and troubleshoot issues that can get you otherwise stuck for days, in a matter of minutes.

You'll learn how to create automation for repetitive and time-consuming tasks that you'd instead let your Mac doing while you are sipping a tea!

I'll show you an easy way to create apps that will help you with your daily routines without having to learn to code.

You can ask me any intermediate or advanced queries, and I will be posting it in a Bonus Section as well.
