  • How to capture screen shots of your entire desktop or a specific area or app

  • The fastest way to seamlessly navigate between apps - Never minimize/maximize an app again!

  • And much, Much, MUCH more! 


I recently showed my brother-in-law how to navigate his new Mac that he received for his new job (he was a lifelong PC user). He delivered a presentation the following week and the Executive team was so impressed at how eloquently he navigated among apps, PowerPoint presentations, and supplementary web materials, that they instructed him to teach the entire organization. He shared his praise with me...So this class was born!
