Section 1: Introduction
Section 2: Advanced Tips and Tricks

In this lecture I show you what amazing things Spotlight search can do.

Different Finder Views

Taking a screenshot on windows is easy its just one button, but on Mac its a lot harder. In this lecture I show you how to take a shot of your whole screen, a specific area and a window.


How do you change what happens when you put your cursor in a corner. Watch to find out more.


When you uninstall a program on windows its slightly easier but with mac there is a program that does the job. Thier are two ways of uninstalling a program. The first is if you downloaded the program form the Mac App Store. And the second is if you downloaded the program from the web.


One of the benefits of having a mac is that there is a very small chance you would ever get a virus. However adware is a lot easier to get. You can get it when you install a program. You will know you have it when your homepage changes or you get lots of popups. In this lecture I show you how to stop these in a few simple clicks.

Instructor Biography

Christopher Young, Program Instructor + Video Editor

Hello my name is Christopher Young. I have a YouTube channel with over 1,000 Subscribers and I make weekly videos. I also am a big fan of technology and enjoy making videos. I am a great fan of new opportunity and ways to grow my brand and make money in the process. Everything I teach is self taught meaning I didn't have courses like any on Udemy when I wanted to learn. I make learning very simple and easy to understand. I have learned everything from Microsoft Word, a long time ago, to things like iMovie and I continue to learn new and useful tools that will improve workflow and productivity, And teach people in the process. I have taught lots of people how to use programs so they can be very successful. I have taught lots of people iMovie and they have now become very good with editing programs. I also have taught people programs and tutorials on my YouTube channel, these have been very successful. I also call my self a video editor because that is mainly my strong point.
