- Take Screenshots Like a Pro
Taking screenshots on your MacBook Pro is easy, but did you know that there are different types of screenshots you can take? By holding down the "Command" + "Shift" + "3" keys, you can take a screenshot of the entire screen. If you only want to capture a portion of the screen, press "Command" + "Shift" + "4" and then drag your mouse over the area you want to capture.
- Use Siri to Control Your MacBook Pro
Siri is not only available on your iPhone or iPad, but it's also available on your MacBook Pro. You can use Siri to control your MacBook Pro, launch apps, play music, and much more. To activate Siri on your MacBook Pro, simply press and hold the "Command" + "Space" keys.
- Customize Your Touch Bar
If you have a MacBook Pro with a touch bar, you can customize it to your liking. To do this, go to "System Preferences" > "Keyboard" > "Customize Touch Bar". You can add or remove items from the touch bar, and even create your own shortcuts.
- Use Split View
If you're someone who likes to multitask, the Split View feature on your MacBook Pro is perfect for you. With this feature, you can split your screen into two separate windows and work on two things at once. To activate Split View, click and hold the green full-screen button on the top left of any window, and then select the second window you want to add.
- Use Time Machine to Backup Your Data
Backing up your data is essential, and the Time Machine feature on your MacBook Pro makes it easy to do. Simply connect an external hard drive to your MacBook Pro and activate Time Machine. It will automatically backup your data at regular intervals, ensuring you never lose important files.
