This is not a site for “Dummies”.   You are not dumb.  After all, you bought a Mac, right?  That was smart!   You just don’t know how to do some stuff yet.


Some books and sites get too complex.   This is a site for anyone who benefits from learning step by step.    I try to avoid giving too much detail, or showing you everything there is to learn, or all the ways of completing a certain task.   So if you find a better way, great, you are learning to experiment and getting more out of your computer. 

We (mostly me) are building a series of how to steps that are easy to follow so even a beginner can get started and do some fun things.  Or maybe not fun, but stuff you want to do anyway.

This site is a work in progress. Topics and steps will continue to be added.   If there is something you would like to see on this site, please email me.

To get started click on one of the boxes below for complete listings and links. (New to Computers? Move your pointer over one of the boxes and press down to click.  You will go to a new page listing the various pages available.   Move your pointer over one of the lines until the arrow turns a hand, then press to click.)
