Hi! I am Chris Breen and I am here to welcome you to Mac OS X Lion Essential Training. My goal in this course is to help you understand the operating system and the bundled applications that make a Mac a Mac. We will start by customizing the interface, so that it's both an efficient work environment and nice to look at. I will provide insight into putting Lion's touch gestures to good use. I will help you make Safari the most effective web browser you've ever used. We will walk through the essential bundle of applications, organizing e-mail messages with Mail, managing contacts with Address Book, and scheduling your busy life with iCal.
And I will take you on a tour of Lions' most important settings, allowing you to completely configure your Mac. I am excited to show you what Apple's new operative system can do. Let's get started with Mac OS X Lion Essential Training.
