1Switching from Windows to Mac? Let's make this as easy as possible
There's a pretty good chance your first computer was a Windows computer--of maybe even just DOS. MacOS isn't complicated but switching from another operating system can be a little confusing at first. This guide is intended to help you make the switch.


If you want to know how to do all those Windows things on a Mac, then this book will help you.

This book is intended for people who want to get started quickly with the OS. For that reason, it's not as comprehensive as other guides. It covers the most popular features, but not how to do configurations you probably have never heard of and will never want to do.

I purposely have done my best to make this handbook a little more casual and fun than what you expect from most MacOS manuals. MacOS is a fun operating system, and any guide you read should be an equally fun read.

Each chapter starts with bullet points on what will be covered, so if it's something you already know, you can skip right ahead; if you only need to know how to use new features, the book is also formatted in a way that these stand out.
Some of the many topics covered include:
  • What's new to macOS Catalina
  • How do you do all those Windows "things" on a Mac
  • Apple Services (Apple Music, Apple News, iCloud, Apple Card, Apple Arcade, Apple TV+)
  • Using Siri
  • How to find things / how to organize things to make them easy to find
  • Setting up Internet and Email
  • Using Sidecar
  • Using Time Machine
  • Parental Controls
  • Downloading / Updating apps
  • Organizing photos
  • Making phone calls and sending messages
  • Multitasking
  • And much, much more
