Many people love Macs, and we are not surprised – these computers have an amazingly sleek design that is always up to date, consistent with new models, and new operating systems each year. It is a great tradition that takes place in September, and it always has millions of fans excitingly waiting for this particular date.
Apple products often have many features that are not used by some part of their users, including the Mac owners. Sometimes, people just do not know about great additional possibilities, or sometimes they underestimate the capabilities of specific tools and apps.
A clever way to always stay up to date and knowing all the best features your Mac can offer is to read reviews on the internet. But here we want to share some additional tips and tricks for the most efficient experience with your Mac.
Fixing Bluetooth Issues on Your Mac
It might not be a problem you often have to face, but let’s be hornets – when you face it, you do not know how to deal with it, and all you can come up with is to restart your Mac and hope for the best. But there are a couple of very specific yet effective ways to fix Bluetooth issues on your Mac fast.
The easiest and the most obvious way to go is by turning off Bluetooth on your device and then turning it back on again. You can find the Bluetooth icon in your Menu Bar. Only then try restarting your Mac, but only if the first method does not work. If this still doesn’t work, try turning off and on the Bluetooth on the devices that you are trying to pair a few times more.
If this does not solve your issue, there is another way. Remove all USB devices and put them back in. If this does not help, try to reset the Bluetooth module. To do so, hold the Shift and the Option keys. Click Bluetooth Menu in Mac’s Menu bar. Click on the Debug option and then click” Remove All Devices”. Then choose to Reset the Bluetooth module. Try reconnecting your devices.
Managing Your Desktop and Apps
Having many desktops items and thumbnails might become tricky and could even slow down your computer because if you have many thumbnails on your Desktop, Mac uses its; CPU memory to load each of them. So we want to share some app managing tips.
One of the interesting things you can try out if you haven’t already is Hot Corners. You can decide what happens when you hover with your mouse on those specific spots. For example, you can start Mission Control. To set this feature up, click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner, go to the System Preferences, click on Mission Control, and then choose Hot Corners.
To navigate faster between your apps, you can use the combination of Command + Tab. To navigate through the apps, keep holding on the Command button, and use the Tab button to switch between apps.
Smarter File Management
To manage your files smarter, you can open up the desired folder faster through the Finder by holding down the Command button and the Up Arrow key. In the long term, this will save you a great deal of time. And time is always money.
And if you struggle with a messy Desktop and you are using macOS Mojave or a later version of macOS, then you can right-click and choose the option called “Stacks”. This will let you automatically organize your files by their type. It would be amazing if we could have this feature in real life, but it is still pretty great.
To save you even more time, instead of deleting your files and then constantly emptying the Trash can, you can delete the data immediately – if you are absolutely sure you will not need them ever again. To do so, click on a file, press Option + Command + Delete all together.
The Use of Apple Watch
If you are a proud owner of an Apple Watch, then you are in for a treat. Having an accessory like this and a Mac at the same time can ease some daily tasks and processes.
For example, you can enable an option that will automatically unlock your Mac if you are somewhere near your computer and wearing your Apple Watch. So there is no need to use your fingerprint or enter your password. This will save you a great deal of time in a while.
