This workshop is designed to help you take control of your Apple computer. You’ll be using OS X 10.12, nicknamed “Sierra” and you’ll learn how to integrate this new operating system with your iPhone and your iPad.

Most importantly, you’ll learn how to navigae your computer, using the native software and different customizing options.


Based on previously sold-out classes, I will focus on four common areas to help you have a stress-free computer experience: file organization, accessing information from different devices, Safari security and backing up your computer. You’ll also learn how to use Dropbox, iCloud and more.

Participants will learn:

  • How to block companies/third parties from tracking your online activity
  • How to customize your Finder windows and use Safarit to its ma,imum potential 
  • How to use keyboard shortcuts to minimize the use of your mouse or trackpad and to speed up your workflow 
  • How to back up your computer and use Time Machine to keep your photos and files safe
  • How to use different Apps to enhance your use of the computer
  • How to sync your devices and much more!

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is for participants with Apple computers running the latest Mac OS X software. By the Fall of 2016 we should have OS X 10.12 available, nicknamed Sierra. You must be on this operating system to take this workshop.

Equipment needed for this workshop:

  •   Apple laptop computer and any iOS devices: iPhone, iWatch, etc.
  •   All devices need to be running the latest software
  •   Power cords and chargers for all devices 
  •   Portable external drive (Time Machine)

A few weeks before the workshop begins, I will send you a list of suggested accessories and apps to purchase before the first session.
