Mac Tips

General differences from Windows

  • command instead of control in most cases
  • Menu bar of selected window goes to top of screen
  • RED DOT closes the window
  • YELLOW DOT minimizes the window (inactive in Full Screen)
  • GREEN DOT toggles fullscreen

More tricks

  • control+command+F — toggles fullscreen
  • control+arrows — manages multiple desktops (yes, I DO mean control)
  • shift+command+4 — takes screen shot
  • command+option+esc — process manager (closes “frozen” programs)
