How to Use MacBook Pro

[Music] hey guys on today’s video we’re going to go over the basics for your macbook air or macbook pro it’s the exact same instructions for both of them so before we get started just want to show you some stuff that you may want to buy right away which is this right here this is a usbc hub so that’s what you would need because you will notice on the side of your mac you only have these two ports so you might want to buy one of these so you can hook up any external hard drives or usb drives besides that in order to charge up your new mac again doesn’t really matter which one you guys have just plug this in here any side of it will work this will go into your wall outlet and then this part will go right here so just plug it in there and there

you go it’s charging now when you first get your mac you don’t really need to charge it right away because it should have some charge already and to turn on your mac again no matter if it’s macbook air macbook pro just open it up and you will see that automatically it will start turning on if it doesn’t for any reason on the top right hand side you will see that button so let me show you so again that’s on the top right hand side you just need to press down on it because that’s a touch id plus a button and you guys can go ahead press on it in order to access your mac once your mac turns on we can get started with everything else now if you would like to turn off your mac you should always go into the menu and shut it down from the apple logo however if you need to force shut it down because it gets stuck at any point in time then yes just by pressing that button and holding it it will shut it down so let’s start off with one of the main basics that we have to set up before we do anything go into your system preferences so your system preferences you will see it down here it will be there by default however let’s say you don’t see it there you can always go up here on the top right hand corner you’re going to see your spotlight search so that’s this icon here we’re going to click on that icon and we’re going to type in system preferences so if you don’t see anything that i’m looking for or i clicked on then just going to spotlight search and search for it so here’s my system preferences i can click on it and from there i’m gonna see this and i want you guys to set up something essential right now so whether you have a mouse down here below you guys will see a mouse or a trackpad you can set both up to half right clicking and make it a little bit more speedy because right now it’s probably too slow just like i am right now and we’re gonna do other stuff as well so this goes for both of them okay so whether again trackpad or mouse same thing so we’re gonna go into trackpad for now and under trackpad we’re gonna enable the tap to click which is very very important so down here we’re gonna see this just put a check mark there by clicking on it okay and at this point we no longer have to click on stuff so you don’t have to do that you can just touch the same way you guys touch your screen on your iphone or ipad you kind of just touch your trackpad in order to select stuff no more clicking which is great now your tracking speed for most of you you might think this is fast enough but once you speed it up you’re gonna see that it’s way better now moving on to clicking some of you may not want to press that hard so you may want to be light or just leave it as is as for now we won’t have to click anymore so it’s okay i’m gonna leave it at medium at the moment but yeah we won’t have to click anymore you can also do silent clicking that’s also an option down here but we’re going to leave all that stuff it’s up to you later on just customize it but this is the first thing we should do i do want to show you other options right here that we have they should all be enabled by the way even this right here i would put a check mark and just go over each one and see what each gesture does such as this one swiping through pages how do you guys get to notification center and all that stuff because you can do a lot of stuff right here with your trackpad so the first gesture that you should know is this one right here and that one just opens everything up so let’s say you guys have a bunch of windows right here so i’ve got this right here also got this in the background we have a mess going on here and i just want to see my desktop because i have some documents there just place your hand on top of here and just open it up so it’s kind of like the same thing you guys would do if you guys


had an ipad for example same gesture to bring anything back in i just have to go like this with my hand so i’m going to go like so then everything will go back in something else you can do is this with four fingers you just go up and you’re gonna see all your windows open at this point in time i can just go back by going like this i can go back into that view like so i can select a window such as music or i can go like that and select something else so i’m just using four of my fingers and i’m swiping kind of up and i can swipe down in order to do that so those are very very important gestures now another gesture let’s say you guys are in safari or even google chrome and you’re searching for something so i just googled my youtube channel here second design and i want to go back well i don’t have to press on the back button there i can just take two of my fingers and if i meet this page i can just swipe and then it’s going to go back to previous and i can even go back to the one that i was before just by swiping like that so i can swipe right and left to see if i want to go backwards or forwards within a page now let’s say you guys are working away and then you want to look at all your apps and programs well there’s a quick way to do that again gestures all i’m going to do is this this gesture i’m going to close my hand i’m going to go on top of here close my hand and i’m going to see all of this so i can swipe through just with my two fingers i can swipe through to see all the programs that i have on here and i can just open up any one of these to get out of here i can just click in the middle for example it’s gonna get me out of there with this one with two fingers we’re just gonna swipe and we’re gonna see this all

our widgets so right here we see our widgets notifications anything else we can just swipe back and there we go so again just taking two fingers sliding and i’m gonna see that one more thing i didn’t show you is just swiping up and down what that does well if i swipe down using my four fingers i’m gonna see this i’m gonna just go back if i swipe up i’m gonna see all my windows and remember you do have right clicking so right clicking is just with two fingers you guys can tap and there we go i do have my right clicking where it’s gonna give me other options i also want to note that you don’t actually have to click on here so you have to press down in order to click you can tap to click on stuff just like you would tap on your ipad to click on stuff you can tap to click here so i can tap in order to click so you do not need to press down right here my touchpad in order to activate my clicking so i do not have to press down on it in order to actually close anything or open anything up so again i can just tap very lightly tap and that will work just fine as long as you activated your settings like i showed you so if you have a mouse it’s going to be similar what i just showed you however what i want you with your mouse let’s just go back to our trackpad anyways and make sure with your mouse you guys have secondary click secondary click would be your right clicking so just have that enabled and you’re good to go so that’s how you enable right clicking on your mouse or right here on your trackpad exact same instructions so let’s just go back and then we’re gonna close this up for now and at this point we can right click on our screen for example and we’re gonna see these options and here’s some basic options you might want right away so just to make a new folder to make a new folder we can just click a new folder and we have successfully made a new folder right here so we can move that folder to the site this is our desktop so we can open up this folder we made in our desktop and drag any files into there to delete anything from your mac such as this folder right here pictures documents anything all we have to do is right click on that specific thing and then just select move to trash that’s one way of doing things another way to delete things to select it and press on your keyboard command delete and that will get rid of it once you guys have deleted something always go to your trash bin so that’s on my bottom right hand side i see my trash bin and i just have to empty it out again i can just right click on it and select empty however i can also go into it and see my transparent and see what’s in there so i’m gonna click on it and here’s my trash bin it’s very important to empty it out so on the top right hand corner just press empty and i do also want to highlight that if you click on the top right hand corner where’s the date you’re going to see widgets and notifications so let’s just click right there we’re going to see all this you can scroll down and you can edit these widgets at any time so to edit them on the bottom you’re going to see edit widgets you can go ahead and click right there we’re going to see all these widgets and at this point we can select any of them and take down any of them that we like so let’s say you guys don’t want these stories i can click on the top right hand corner and just get rid of that and let’s say i want a bigger widget for my weather i want to really look into my weather so on the bottom i’m going to see weather down here i’m going to click on there and here my widgets for weather so i can have a small medium or large large will show me more information about it so what i’m gonna do is just add this on the top left hand side i’m gonna click on it and that’s going to be added right here onto my widgets now to close this up on the bottom right hand side i’m going to see done just click on done and i’m done with my widgets widgets are really cool because you guys can get a quick glance at what’s important in your life basically from there we’re just gonna click up here to get rid of them so it’s on the top right hand corner on your date just to get rid of them now let’s say you’re doing a conference and you don’t want to get all these notifications from different apps including phone calls or anything even text right here on your mac well we can silence your mac not to do that so again on the top right hand corner you’re going to see this besides siri so here’s siri and besides siri we see this just click on it and you will notice this coming up so let me just zoom in a little bit see this where it says do not disturb click on it you’re gonna see this so you can set this up not to disturb you for one hour this evening always on maybe you don’t want ever to get notifications they can be annoying at times or it’s just until tomorrow so if you have a really long thing or maybe you’re not really sure how long you’re gonna be in that meeting or you just want this to start until tomorrow just click right there we’re not gonna see any more notifications obviously if we change our mind we can always tap on this again to get rid of it and right now we’re gonna get notifications again so that’s something really important to know now especially now that we have a lot of meetings online everybody’s working from home or maybe you’re even doing school you may not want those notifications on now getting back to here you guys will see wi-fi bluetooth airdrop airdrop airdrops pretty cool it works really well if you guys have iphones ipads you guys can transfer stuff between your mac and your iphone just using this so that’s important to note we also have up here keyboard brightness display brightness and sound plus you can always play music also want to show you that screen mirroring can only do this if you guys have anything that’s compatible with screen mirroring but anyways i do have a separate video talking all about that but it’s just good to note that something else that’s really important obviously it’s how to shut down your mac so on the top left hand corner we’re gonna see your apple logo so this is map logo click on it gonna scroll down a little bit and you’re gonna see shut down that’s how you guys shut down or restart your mac so you don’t have those options here sleep will just put your mac to sleep so you guys can access it later on maybe you’re going to use it after a few minutes so you just want to let it rest for now make it sleep and there you go it’s just going to be on rest mode however if you guys want to shut it down you would press right here and it’s going to automatically shut down in d seconds all right if you guys want to shut it down right away just press shutdown it’s going to turn off if you guys want to force shut it down well that depends which mac you guys have you may have to hold on to power button for a few seconds and then it’s just gonna force shut down by the way with my new macbook airs macbook pros your touch id that’s an actual button so you guys can actually press and hold that to shut it down to force shut it down but the normal way of shutting down is from up here and then just choosing shutdown as you’re getting to know your mac you’ll find that everything is in finder so all your documents everything you guys want to find is in finder finders down here on the bottom left hand side you guys will see finder as i mentioned if you don’t see it you can always type it up in the spotlight search however most of you will see it down here already so we can tap on it and once you open it up you might see a screen like so on the side you’re going to see various options so airdrop that works like i mentioned before if you have an iphone ipad or touch or maybe another mac you guys can airdrop stuff between one another that’s just to transfer files pictures anything you guys want really recents we’ll take a look at your recent files applications that’s where all your programs are going to be at desktop is just our desktop and documents and downloads so documents that’s usually where you guys want to organize all your documents you just drag and drop any files into there downloads that’s everything you die is download from the internet so what i’m going to show you guys right now is applications so let’s click on applications so right here on applications these are the apps that are installed on my mac so these are all the programs that i’ve installed at the moment that’s not the only way you guys can find your applications by the way we can also find your applications let me close this up to close any of these windows up it’s by pressing the x up here if you guys want to minimize you guys can press this so that’s an option as well so we’re just going to go ahead and close this we can also press command q by the way to quit anything so if you want to close that or really close an app or a program on your mac press command q that’s essential really good to know but anyways i wanted to show you another way you guys can access your programs obviously there’s quick ways of doing it but down here below you guys will also see launchpad so let’s just tap on launchpad and here they are that’s another way to access all your programs and take a look at them we can also search for them so if it’s a specific program maybe you have a lot just click up here and search for that program to get out from this just click away just click anywhere that’s not a program and you’re gonna get back here now to serve the web we can use safari but there’s also google chrome and other apps that we can use so right now i’m gonna show you how to download google chrome which is something that everybody uses all the time so right now we’re gonna go right into safari here’s safari down here again if you don’t see it we can use spotlight search so that’s on the top right hand corner that’s a spotlight search we can click right there and we can type up safari once that comes up we can just click on it and here safari you’re gonna just close this up on the top you’re gonna see your search bar and just type in google chrome then we’re just gonna hit the enter key we’re gonna see this and here is the first thing usually i always tell you guys don’t select the first things that’s an ad so it could be anything it doesn’t really have to be something from google but hey it’s google so they’re gonna put their thing first and not some advertisement from another company so for safety you should always scroll down and just select the second option so you will see download and install google this is from that’s exactly where you have to go download anything from google such as google chrome and that’s exactly what we’re gonna do so we’re just gonna click on the first option actually and right here we’re going to see get more done google chrome blah blah blah and download google chrome for mac os x 10.11 or later which is exactly what your mac is so we’re going to go ahead and download right now chrome so depending which mac you guys have you’ll download the intel chip or the apple chip newer max if you guys just bought a mac it’s gonna have the apple chip they mean m1 chip so if you guys have a mac that in the description set m1 the newer max then it will be an apple chip or else it’s just going to be an intel chip you can also check that out up here on the top left hand side you’re going to see your apple logo just click on it about this mac and you guys will see if it says intel or maybe just says apple anyways once you guys verify which one you guys actually have just go on and select your second option or your first option in this case it is an m1 so we’re gonna click right here we’re gonna go we’re gonna see this message we’re gonna go into allow and it’s gonna download now one more thing since you know this will take some time downloading well actually it’s already done downloading but to get everything set up correctly we’re gonna go back into system preferences system preferences we’re gonna open that up and we’re gonna make sure that everything we download can download without any problems to do that we’re gonna go right into our privacy so that’s down here below security privacy we’re gonna see this icon click on it and from here if you’re having any problems downloading any apps or doesn’t really matter what it is could be this google chrome or installing anything from the internet that’s not directly from apple then we have to make these changes so we’re gonna go on to click to unlock so it’s in the bottom left-hand side we’re gonna click right there we’re gonna unlock this first we’re gonna go ahead we can use our password or our fingerprint depending what you guys have we’re gonna unlock this and from here what we have to choose is the second option so app store and identify developers do not just have app store so make sure you guys have the second option and if you’re having any problems with any anything actually downloading and installing you will see an additional message down here below where you guys can click on allow so just keep that in mind for now we’re just going to close this up and since we have successfully downloaded google chrome we can always go in the top right-hand corner we’re going to see this arrow and we’re going to see show downloads here’s our dmg file usually programs for mac will be dot dmg not like windows files that are dot exe or any other one another way to see this is just going to your downloads so i’m going to teach you that too if you guys open up finder once again we can always click on downloads once finder opens up and we’re gonna see our downloads right here there are several views to look at your files so i really don’t like this first look i like to see my icons so i’m going to go ahead and click on this and this is the difference so we’re going to see an icon instead of a list which is this option so i do like things a little bit more visual and that’s why i do that but it depends what you guys like anyways here’s my dmg file i’m gonna click on it double click on it to open it up it’s gonna open up my google chrome dmg file and basically with any app out there to install it it’s just dragging it to the applications folder so here it is we’re supposed to see this and right now what it tells us is to drag this thing so we’re gonna click on it we’re gonna hold we’re gonna drag it on top on top of our applications folder but yes this is our applications folder that’s we’re doing right now we’re transferring it over there and that’s it it’s that easy so we can go ahead and close this up so we’re gonna tap up here and then we’re gonna go back into our applications and from here we’re going to see google chrome it’s right here so we can double click on it and we’re going to open up google chrome from here we should just press on open and we shouldn’t have any problems again if you have any problems i showed you guys that in the system preferences where you can change a few things but anyways we’re going to start google chrome for now before we start google chrome make sure to read this at google chrome’s your default browser you may want that may not want that for me not really although i like google chrome i don’t want it to be my default browser so anytime i click on a link i don’t want google chrome to open i do like safari and we also have this option which is to make google chrome better now that i do like i do like sending off that information about anything that goes wrong to google so we’re gonna go ahead and start google chrome and here we go right now we got a few notifications to close any notifications because they might be annoying you can just tap on the left hand side so we’re gonna see this x tap on it tap on it that’s you can close notifications that just came up going back into google chrome right here we have it and we can start up just by getting started we can sign in with our google or on the top you guys can just type up for example so to search for anything we can just go ahead press the return key and we’re gonna search for those videos or information about any website here on google so that’s it you guys can search and use google chrome right here on your mac now i did mention about properly closing windows and programs at this point this is something that’s not too great about mac but on the top left hand side you guys will see this right and i did tell you that to close any windows you would need to do that yes and no so for programs such as google chrome if you do that it’s not really closed so i’m gonna tap right there tap here i’m gonna close everything and you might notice on the bottom you’re gonna see google chrome with this dot below it right the same thing goes with safari right here i don’t really have any other apps that are open so although i close them technically they’re not really close they’re kind of minimized so to actually close those apps we do have to press command q or just quit them so i’m going to open up google chrome again so here’s google chrome and to properly close an app such as google chrome when you program like i mentioned before you would do command q to actually close it and quit it or you can always tap up here you’re gonna see chrome for example or whichever program it is so just tap on it and if you scroll all the way down you’re gonna see quit so you guys can quit google chrome or quit any app for that matter or again you guys can always press command q on your keyboard so i’m going to do that and as you may notice if i look down again i’m not going to see that dot underneath it that’s because it’s no longer opened at all it’s fully closed so that’s how to fully close any applications programs right here on your mac so at this point since we’re done installing google chrome we can always just right click here and eject google chrome that’s just ejecting the installer that’s all it’s kind of like deleting it but we’re not deleting the app itself so don’t worry about that guys just make sure to eject it it might take a little bit like right now usually they don’t it’s the first time i actually took that long but anyways we’re done with that now something else that’s really useful to know about your mac is that you can customize so many things in so many keys when it comes down to it so for example maybe you have a smaller macbook pro macbook air and you want more space on your screen and you don’t want to spew this the whole time because you may not need to view this the whole time every single icon you guys have down here well there’s a way around that so we’re going to go into system preferences now again if you don’t see system prefaces down here you can always look for that up here in your spotlight search so what we want to look for is our third option up here doc in menu bar just tap on it and this is something that most people use but you don’t have to if you don’t want to automatically hide and show the dock so down here below we can go ahead and hide that dock if we don’t want it so we’re gonna go ahead and click right there what does that do well i’m gonna click and i’ll click there so you guys can see what happens see how it disappears that’s what it does so let’s say i made it hide what happens well if i scroll all the way down it’s just gonna appear so that’s what i’m doing as long as i’m not touching that then it’s just gonna disappear however if i go down with my mouse all the way down i’m gonna see everything that i want now something else that’s pretty cool that i like to activate is up here magnification so i’m going to put a check mark right there and what this does is this so now that i scroll down it’s going to magnify everything now in my case i think that’s a little bit too big but some people may like that we can adjust that so i can adjust to the middle ish so now that if we go down they just go up a little bit more so it kind of highlights what you’re scrolling over i’m gonna go over a little bit more and there we go so right now it’s highlighting what i’m gonna select now this is pretty useful again if you have a 13 inch uh it’s pretty nice that this will highlight what you’re scrolling over so that’s a quick tip for you to customize and further customize your mac so for now we’re just going to close this up now i’m just going to show you what’s down here and what each one of these is so launch pad already show you just shows you all your apps so far just a web browser where you can use same thing as google chrome and right here we have messages so this is just imessages if you have an iphone for example you can hook it up and you will see your text messages as well here so if somebody from android sent you a message you will also see it here if you don’t have anything like that don’t have an iphone then you’re only going to see imessage in there so that means you’re only going to see messages from other people using an apple device since imessage only uses your data or your wi-fi anyways moving on to facetime well we’ve all kind of seen what facetime is it’s just you calling over somebody else and you can do facetime audio by the way if you don’t really want to show your camera so you can do that as well um you guys can also even use siri to make those facetime calls or even send text messages so siri is on the top right here so you can click on it and just go on and use siri to make any phone calls or anything like that you can tell siri to do that you can tell tier to do a lot of things even tell you the weather and stuff like that anyways going back here we’re gonna go into mail may also go to set it up uh you don’t really have to you can always just go into your mail through safari or google chrome just going to let’s see you guys have hotmail go to your hotmail through google chrome or safari it doesn’t really matter but yes you set up your mail right here to go along with your hotmail or gmail or whichever so you guys can have everything right in there anyways maps would be like google maps but it is in google maps it’s maps created by apple and photos that’s where you could keep all your photos and usually they end up there anyways if you have an iphone you’re gonna see that a bunch of your photos are there already moving on to calendar well it’s just a standard calendar contacts you can view all your contacts from there if you have any moving on to reminders that’s where you open up type up stuff just to remind you again i like to use siri for everything so you can tell siri to remind you of something specific date and that’s where it’s going to be added notepad well that’s where you can write any notes they like so i actually use notes a lot and i keep everything in there from videos that i need to do or any additional notes your apple tv app that i’m going to go into later because that’s just an app it’s not apple tv plus and i’ll show you that in just a second music symbiotes can check that out later and with podcast again just go right into it and see if you like anything in there news there’s stuff that’s free in there and there’s own soul paid stuff you can’t pay for a subscription or you can look up free news in there as well your app store that’s where you’re gonna download a lot of your apps but not all of them like i just showed you before you can always go and look for specific apps that you want such as google chrome from safari you can download that and you wouldn’t download that from the app store for example but there’s a bunch of apps in there that you may want moving on to system preferences which i already showed you and all the way here we’re going to see your trash which is always important to empty it out now before we keep going with anything i want to move on to system preferences again and that’s because i want to show you something i don’t have a video showing you really specifics of how to set up an external hard drive with your mac but i think that’s the best way to have a backup of your documents and everything you’re going to move on to your mac so make sure to activate time machine that’s down here below and that’s using an external hard drive don’t activate it if you don’t have an external hard drive there’s no point but if you have one use time machine i have a video whole separate video showing you how to set up time machine so make sure to watch that if you’re interested in backing up your files if they are important to you or else yes you can use google drive or anything else like that to keep your files online and secure for now we are done hopefully have fun with your mac you will get used to it really fast trust me as long as you watched and follow these steps you should be all good anyways that would be it for this video if you guys have any questions comments you guys can write down here in comments area don’t forget to subscribe and rate thank you [Music] [Applause] [Music] you
