Adopting a back-to-the-basics approach, this best-selling little Mac classic has been revised and overhauled to introduce users to Tiger, Apple's newest version of its revolutionary operating system. In the gentle, friendly, funny style that generations of computer users have come to know and love, author Robin Williams shows readers how to dive in and start working with the Mac and OS X 10.4 Tiger. Readers will learn how to find their way around the interface; use the desktop, Dock, Finder, and icons; control the mouse; manipulate windows; search with Tiger's new Spotlight feature; save and print documents; and more. Using straightforward, jargon-free explanations delivered in logical, easy-to-follow sections, Robin is a new user's personal guide, coaching and encouraging users as they learn their way around the magic of the Mac.
Mac OS 8.5 introduced definite changes to the operating system, and the latest edition of Robin Williams's immensely popular The Little Mac Book covers them all. Completely updated and revised, The Little Mac Book, Sixth Edition explains the new features of OS 8.5 in the same warm, jargon-free manner that made previous editions such a hit. With more than 1 million copies in print, The Little Mac Book is one of the best-selling introductory guides to the Macintosh. A must-have for newcomers, the sixth edition covers all the essentials of Macintosh computing, without resorting to the dense technical terms and details found in so many other books. And its straightforward explanations of the latest features (most notably the Sherlock search system) make it a helpful reference for Mac veterans who are upgrading to OS 8.5.
