Pages

Word processing is a core tech function, and Apple users are fortunate to have one included with their devices. You can even use it on non-Apple computers via your iCloud account on the Web. You can use it to create beautiful documents, including newsletters, flyers, certificates, basic letters, and books. It can even open Word documents and save its own files as Word documents. But like any piece of software with such extensive capabilities, there are some things to be learned regarding its use. Join Mike Matthews as he shows what kind of things you can create using Pages. The course will be three sessions, with the first on March 22nd. Subsequent sessions will be on April 5th and April 19th. This training is not publicly available and the cost is $20.00 per person. Persons who register for the training will also have access to recordings of the training sessions which will only be available to them. So join us for some great training in how to use a great piece of software.

Pages is Apple’s word processor and it runs on the Mac, iPad, iPhone, and in a web browser. You can create beautiful documents, including newsletters, flyers, certificates, basic letters, and books. It can even open Word documents and save its own files as Word documents. And did we mention that it’s free? Have your Mac updated to the latest version of macOS and Pages find out why Pages might be all the word processor you’ll ever need.

Is your hard drive almost full? Looking to clear off some space? It can be confusing where to look and what you can get rid of. There are probably things on your Mac you don’t need, and there are probably files you have created that you can now archive to another drive. You can also use the features of iCloud to save space. For a Mac “spring cleaning” you don’t need any special software, you just need to know some basic techniques.

Finder

March 2, 2021 – What the Heck is the “Finder”?

The Finder has been a part of the Mac since the beginning in 1984. It started out as a way to access the Mac’s file system. It wasn’t until several years after its introduction that it would actually “find” anything. Now the Finder plays several roles, including providing many ways to organize and view your files, serving as a conduit to your iPhone and iPad, and even accessing files that aren’t on your Mac. Update your Mac to macOS Big Sur and we’ll explore all the things the Finder can do.
