New to Mac: Sierra Edition *** FULL CLASS ***

  • Published on Jun 12, 2017
  • My New to Mac class has since been updated for MacOS Mojave. Watch the updated version here:
    This New to Mac class is 100% FREE! Get the PDF guide (also free) here:
    This two-hour class goes over all the basics that a new Mac owner needs to know! We start off by going over the basics like how to find your stuff through Finder, to setting up System Preferences to meet your needs. We'll also cover topics like iCloud, Photos, Apple Mail, and more.
    Protect Your Mac with Malwarebytes!!! Get it here:
    If you are brand new to the Mac or just needs help going over the basics, this class should absolutely help you get started. This class is specifically taught at a slower pace to help folks who are unfamiliar with the Mac feel more comfortable. Because the class is two hours long we encourage you to feel free to pause and come back when you feel comfortable.
    We encourage you to leave us your comments below. We don't have time to respond to everyone, but feedback is always appreciated.

    Good tutorial, but what a horribly annoying user interface. No wonder the trackpad is so good, you gotta keep resizing those windows. Give me Windows any day.

    Don’t forget that Windows is an unlicensed copy of Macintosh. Sadly Jobs licensed the Crown Jewels to Microsoft which named it Windows. Before this DOS was a terrible OS and the Mac had won the battle. Then Microsoft came out with v2 and did not license it. Found a Judge when Apple sued who did not understand computers who decided in favor of Microsoft. Next many of WIndows favorite programs began on the Mac and then migrated: Excel, Pagemaker, Word for WIndows, and more. Very few Windows programs migrated to the Mac.

    So excited for this video! I have been talking about getting a mac for years, I am sure my family is sick of listening to me go on. So I finally bought a Mac Pro sierra edition. Can’t wait to start the course. But I already have a question. When I shut down the laptop and close the lid, when I open the lid it starts up on its do u stop that? Also when it starts up my email window comes up, how do u stop that too?? Thanks David for all you do. Happy New Year!

    Wonderful, nicely done. Pleasant, informative, very good. One small suggestion, while talking to viewers, no need to say "out there", as in 'for those of you out there who want to.....'. EVERYBODY is out there, no one is in your living room.

    I've never owned a Mac. I still don't own one. However, I'm an IT student and OS X is part of the curriculum, so I needed a video that would help me to understand the basics of OS X. I have an assigned textbook, but I find the explanations in it to be very dry and tedious. After I finished reading it, I wanted to reinforce that knowledge somehow and I found this video. It was perfect. Thank you. Now I'm off to find a video about the UNIX CLI. I'm sure that will be *riveting*.

    Love your work and thank you for doing this. You mentioned an after market keyboard that you liked. I went to the product recommendations and couldn't find a keyboard and I couldn't remember the name of the keyboard. Would you please be so kind as to tell me what the keyboard was the you recommended. One other small suggestion, the yellow circle you use to emphasize cursor location is very light for old eyes to pick up before it is too late to see where it was. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
