Learn Essential Mac OSX skills that will help you get the most out of your Apple computer.
At the centre of every Apple computer sits the operating system that makes it possible to use these amazing machines. If you don't know how to get the most out of Mac OS 10, you are not using your computer to it's full potential.
In this 4-hour tutorial by Star macProVideo.com trainer Francesco Schiavon, you'll learn essential skills that every mac user should know. If you've just switched to the Mac and are looking for a quick way to learn your new machine, or even if you're a long time Mac user that wants to delve deeper into the secrets of Mac OS, this tutorial is for you!
This tutorial starts by showing you how to work with files and applications on your computer. You'll learn how to work with finder windows to find and organize files, efficiently use the dock and application switcher to manage your apps, and how to use spotlight to sort through the massive amounts of files on your computer.
Once you've mastered file management, you'll move on to learn how to install software, deal with hung applications, use the dashboard and widgets, backup you files with Time Machine, and even burn CDS and DVDs directly from within Mac OS X.
There's a lot to learn in this title, but you don't need to watch the entire show. Use the detailed menus and keyword search fictions to quickly find items of interest. For a full list of this title's topics, see the table of contents.

I just started to watch the tutorial. My problem is that I understand the written English, but not very well the spoken English. However, I like this tutorial and I'll make the best to learn Mac OS.
I find macProVideo to be very helpful as I can spend as much time as I need to thoroughly understand the tutorial and the Trainer is excellent. I am getting more from this than I did from the One to One training. When I came home from those sessions I found I still had questions because I didn't know anything about the operating system. You can't ask questions if you don't know what to ask. I can replay it as often as needed. A excellent investment for getting the most out of your mac.
BEST TUTORIAL YET.MR.SCHIAVON,YOU HAVE A GREAT PLAN FOR DELIVERING THE MATERIAL.AS A TEACHER MYSELF,I CAN HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TUTORIAL TO ANYONE WANTING TO LEARN MORE THEIR MAC.THANKS FOR A GREAT SERIES.
After many years in the PC world, I just got my first Mac. I'm really glad I found your site and worked my way through almost all of Core Snow Leopard. There are so many features of the OS that I would have been oblivious to without Francesco's clear and interesting guidance. When I started watching this, I wondered how absorbing a bunch of videos on an operating system could be. Well, VERY!
Once again you've hit the jackpot. Each tutorial I try is great. Though detailed, he calmly and simply takes one through the steps till the end of each segment. They flow from one to the other seamlessly. Makes learning enjoyable.Great Job!! I have also purchased the Advanced. Can hardly wait to use it.
I feel I will benefit from the instruction.I'll keep at it. for me it's new terrority.
Ok - this is a fairly basic overview of Snow Leopard but I can honestly say that although I've been a Mac user since 2003 I did pick up quite a few handy tips. That said, if you are an experienced Mac user you should probably dive right into the Advanced 0SX Tricks tutorial which has just been released. I have bought that one as well and I'm looking forward to learning from it. Francesco is an excellent teacher with a friendly, involving approach. One small word of criticism - the audio clips quite a lot on this tutorial - other than that I've nothing but praise for this product. Well done!
The tutorial was very well done. Francesco's descriptions were very methodical and clear, and the occasional repetition of the sequences is helpful. My only suggestion regarding future videos is it seemed that the audio portion was recorded a bit hot, and I detected digital clipping from time to time. Of course, that has little to do with the educational content, but it was slightly distracting at times.
Hello, my name is mario, I'm Peruvian sooooo, I will write in Spanish. Sorry. Soy periodista y aunque manejo bastante bien la camara de video no sabia editar. Sumenle a eso que soy un peruano trabajando en Japon. Ademas y en vista de mis necesidades laborales (y por consejo de mi novia, italiana), decidi cambiar de Windows a Mac y comenzar a estudiar Final Cut, un programa que segun le consulte a varios editores, es el mejor del mercado. Me puse manos a la obra y comence a buscar tutoriales en YouTube, donde las ganas de ayudar son inmensas pero la metodologia no lo es tanto, asi que emprendi la busqueda en diversas paginas web hasta que llegue a esta. Tenia muchas dudas y solo habia un correo electronico, pero como no escribo muy bien en ingles (lo entiendo mucho mas y mejor), escribi a la seccion de soporte y finalmente nos pusimos en contacto por Skype (Montreal - Yokohama). la persona que me atendio (Christian labbe) resolvio todas mis dudas y me indico que cosa comprar de acuerdo a mis necesidades. Si he de ser sincero me sorprendio su honestidad porque no trato de hacer que compre muchos programas, sino los necesarios respecto a Final Cut, iMovie, teoria del video y "algo para aprender a manejar bien mi iMac". Yo ya habia visto varios tutoriales de la pagina (los gratuitos y los ejemplos que ponen), entre ellos los de Francesco Schiavon cuyo ingles (quizas por ser el tambien de raices latinas - supongo, por el apellido), lo entendia perfectamente. Asi que aqui me tienen, aprendiendo a manejar la iMac y paralelamente metiendole mano a Final Cut (ya edite mi primer video e hice otros cuatro en iMovie 2009), y lo unico que puedo decir son tres cosas: 1. Los tutoriales son EXCELENTES, simples de aprender, con buena metodologia y super bien editados, es decir, una combinacion perfecta de buenos instructores con las tecnicas de video necesarias. 2. Me he demorado muchos anhos en cambiar de Windows a Mac, lamento no haberlo hecho antes porque en realidad, esta...
