Welcome

Mac OS X 10.9, also known as Mavericks, is not a grand departure from the previous version of the Mac OS, named Mac OS 10 Mountain Lion. Many of its best new features are under the hood, meaning they're tweaked so the operating system that help your Mac run faster and more efficiently. That said, there are a handful of over the hood features that you’ll find helpful. In this short course, I'll show you how to make the best of them. You'll learn how to use finder tabs to help keep your Mac's desktop uncluttered.

The organized among us will find a lot to like in Maverick's new finder tags feature, which allows you to assign colors and keywords to your files and folders. You'll learn about iCloud's new Keychain feature that let's you share usernames, passwords and credit card numbers among the Apple devices you own. Those of you using more than one monitor will be thrilled to know that with Mavericks, Apple has embraced the use of multiple monitors in important ways. And we'll cover two new applications, Maps and iBooks, as well as the new features found in the Calendar application and Apple's web browser, Safari.

Gee, come to think of it, that's not a bad handful. I think you'll agree as we explore Maverick's best new features. Let's get started.
