What do I need to do when I bought a MacBook Air for the first time?

If you just use a computer to type or something, then MacBook Air is actually very good: it not only meets the needs but also experience the Mac products and macOS system. It is not comparable to other computers before you know it. After all, many people can’t toss about Windows.

The 2018 Air has upgraded screens, processors, interfaces, etc., which are much better than the previous Air. Sincerity is still there. The Pro series was bought only because the codeword was too bad, it was prepared for professional tasks.

Mac can be used for 4-5 years, can maintain the smoothness and appearance of the body itself, so I personally think it is not a loss. In addition, because there are no games on the Mac platform, students personally feel that Internet addiction can be eliminated

Next, talk about how to use it correctly.

1: Manage Apple ID

This is your basic identification code in the Apple ecosystem, and all online services are based on this.

If the subject has an iPhone or iPad, just log in to the same Apple ID, do not register another one, which will facilitate the interconnection between devices.

2: Familiar with macOS system

This Zhihu has a lot of introductory articles above to help understand the difference between it and Windows.

One of the important differences is: try to download the audited applications in the App Store, and directly drag the files with the .app suffix into the “application” subfolder in the “Finder”.

The subject of codewords may be used in the Microsoft Office suite. You can go to the official website to buy this, or you can download a pirated version online. Apple’s own Pages, Numbers and Keynote are also available, and the format can be converted into familiar .docx, .xcl, .ppt.

3: No hard disk partition

Just create the folder directly. It’s okay to lose all the desktops. The several sub-folders that come with the system can be seen on the left side of the Finder and can be used as required.

4: Don’t change the administrator name, you will lose the authority! Take a good name at the time of activation!

5: No need to shut down. Close the lid and go to sleep when power on. If you are worried that too many cached files will slow down your system, just restart it once a month.

6: Familiar with the touchpad, better than all Windows notebooks. Use the mouse to choose whether you are familiar with the touchpad.

7: Safari browser is good enough, please be familiar with it. Reject junk domestic software such as XX browser.

8: Most viruses come from unknown download files, so don’t just download files online. No need to install anti-virus software.

9: Deleting files to the “trash can” is just transferred to space, and you need to continue operations in it to actually delete the files. The trash can is just a transfer station, to avoid accidental deletion and no chance of recovery.

10: Under macOS, copying is not copying under Windows. Copy under Mac means to create an identical copy of the file in the original place, which is similar to cloning the file; the copy is the copy under Windows.

11: Do not wipe the screen with water or a damp cloth or paper towel! Use a fine, dry cloth such as dry glasses cloth.

12: Type-C interface, Thunderbolt 3 protocol. Buy a few converters, either official or Taobao, easy to use. Of course, it is better if there is a device directly plugged in. The speed of Thunderbolt 3 is not comparable to that of USB.

13: Update the system regularly, don’t let bugs stay there.

14: There are no games on the Mac.

15: Don’t eat food on the computer, you will regret the food scraps entering the keyboard. Don’t even put the opened cup near the computer.

16: If it is repaired, please go to the official store or authorized store, and refuse to other stores. Remember this one! !!

17: For questions, you don’t understand, you can reply below this answer or search on the Internet, don’t fool around. But don’t believe everything on Baidu, just keep a few thoughts.

Let’s stop here, for the time being, I wish everyone enjoy your use of the first Mac!
