Apple is known for spicing up their products with plenty of useful features. It is also worth mentioning that many of those features introduced by the company are hidden and don’t receive due attention, which is a pity as all of them are handy. So, we bet that you only use about half the potential of your devices.
In this post, we have included some of the most useful hidden highlights of MacOS that often remain unnoticed by users. With this list of handy tricks, you will disclose the full potential of your Mac and make your everyday operations much simpler.
- Add your signature to digital documents
Most apps for viewing documents or PDF files have features that allow you to add a digital signature to those documents right from your computer. You can create a signature using only the trackpad and your finger. This trick will come in handy if you use your Mac for work.
- Copy and paste things on multiple devices
It is convenient if you have several Apple devices. It works quite easy – you can copy something on your one iOS or MacOS device and paste it to another. Note that you have to be signed into the same iCloud account on both devices to make this feature work. This excellent feature is available in MacOS Sierra and iOS 10.
- Rearrange icons in the menu bar
If you want to rearrange the menu bar located at the top of your screen, hold Command and use trackpad or mouse to move the icons around.
To bring up the emoji menu on your Mac hold Command + Control keys and click on the space bar.
- Dragging text
Another unique feature allows users to move the text around from one app to another. Also, you can move it to the desktop to create a new document fast and efficiently. For this, highlight the text you want to move and hold it down with your mouse or trackpad.
While watching a video, you can open an additional window with a video that you can resize and move around the screen however you want. To do this, find an icon with an arrow that points to a separate monitor and clicks on it. Usually, this button is located in the bottom right corner of the player.
If there is no such icon, hold the Control key and click twice on the video to open a menu.
- Fast access to multitasking mode
This mode allows you to split your Mac’s screen and work with several apps simultaneously. To enable this mode quickly, click on the green button located in the upper left corner of the window and hold it.
