Ok, so this is the deal. I have this job where staff and faculty come to me for answers. Some of these people use a Mac and want help. I don’t use a Mac … sooooo.
The learning curve I’m on right now is STEEP! The thing that’s kicking my butt is learning how to use a Mac from scratch. I have a MacBook Pro and there are some things I need help with.
1. After I take photos, I take my chip out of the camera and slip it into the left side of this laptop… but then nothing happens. With Dell laptop, a folder pops up and I can copy my photos from the chip to the desktop. Can you help me?
2. When I want to erase what I just wrote, I can only use the delete key and it erases from the right to the left. Using my Dell, I can put my cursor in front of the word and delete the letters, words, sentences from the right and left. Am I just missing something?
3. Where are my folders? I am lost!
4. Is there a way to return to the desktop immediately? On my Dell, I can use the Windows icon and the letter D to return right away.
5. When I’m in MacWord, the font is so tiny – how do I increase the size for my viewing pleasure?
6. The edge of the laptop rubs against my wrists – they have burn like marks on them. UGH! Any suggestions?
Know where I can turn for help?
I found IPhotos which is the folder that houses pictures. Yippee!
I know how to Open, Close and Minimize windows.
I know how to find the clock and set my local weather.
And I know I have so much more to learn!
