10 Macbook Pro Tips for Beginners – Switching to Mac

Everyone is probably using a laptop right now. You can buy MacBook pro now but new models keep coming out every day. And with every model that comes out, there would always be a market awaiting it. However, if you are a beginner in the Macbook world and you don’t quite understand how to operate the machine, you might find it hard to use.

You might also have had the Macbook Pro for a while but are not fully aware of the potential it holds and how to unlock it. Here are some of the tips and tricks of using your Macbook Pro faster and efficient;

1

Quick Screenshots

While working or doing whatever, the need to screenshot a picture, files, some quotes, or could be anything important that you can’t either download or you don’t have the time to download always comes up. More often than not, you really don’t need to screenshot the entire screen. MacBook Pro allows you to screenshot just the parts that you need. Just press command plus shift plus 4 and you are set (cmd+Shift+4).

If you are working and need to open multiple windows, it sometimes could be hectic going back and forth and even finding the one you need to open.

Sometimes you don’t have a delete key on some Windows devices. Jumping to the end of the word just to delete via backspace may also be a waste of time and demotivating sometimes. The delete key in Mac is also equivalent to holding down control plus D.
