January 2014 Meeting Minutes

Here’s the news from Tuesday’s meeting…

Here it is January, the Holidays are behind us for another year, and the New Year has begun again. I hope one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to keep coming to our fun and informative Mac User Group meetings!!! Bring any questions you have and any ideas you would like to share. There is always some fun people there to help with all your answers.

Has everyone got the new Mavericks system downloaded yet??? We are so lucky to have Bill Jones and all his knowledge as part of our Group. He has been so helpful taking time over the last several months to go over so much of the new and fun things that the new system can do. Here are a few more:

We can now have more than one desk top. Under Mission Control, go to the upper right corner. A “Plus” sign will appear, drag it over, and another dest top will be added.

Under the Bookmark sign on the left, there is now a column for “Reading List”. A great place to save those online articles you don’t have time to read right now.

Up in the right corner, look for some bullet dots, and bars. Click on that, and you have all the up-to-date information for your mail and bulletins.

Regarding the calendar, you can now scroll month to month. So much easier. Lots of fun new things you can do when adding a meeting for info on the calendar. It will even map your trip, and calculate the time you need to leave to get there. Check it out!

In iCloud, there is now a Key Chain that will save your online sign-ins, and will sync to all your devices. It will even pick out a great password for you if you need it too.

So as you can see, there is so much to learn with the new system. This is just a drop in the bucket. Thanks again to Bill for sharing all his knowledge with us.. See you next meeting.

Sincerely, Linda, Secretary
