Working with files in iCloud? We have tips to help. Managing program windows on your desktop? Hacks will make life easier. Creating reminders or notes? Use our tricks to make the process more productive. Emailing, tweeting, browsing, printing, word processing, testing and exploiting hardware, working with photos, movies, and documents... There's no area Mac Kung Fu, Second Edition doesn't touch upon, making it a unique and utterly necessary addition for any Mac lover's bookshelf.
Each tip is deliberately short and readable, often detailing things even Mac Geniuses don't know, and you can dip in and out whenever you want. Most tips take less than a minute to complete, yet the results last for a lifetime of better computing.
