Basic Mac/iOS Presentation

Tips and hacks on on using Folders/Files on your Mac or iOS devices

The 30-minute presentation will look at some lesser known things about using the Mac’s folders, including cleaning up your Downloads Folder, managing files and folders, what should and should not be in your Home Folder, and cleaning up your Desktop. For iOS users there will be an introduction to the new Files App and what you can do with it.

Our General Meeting is held on the second Thursday of each month. Our meeting place in even months is at the Tri-Area Community Center in Chimacum, and in odd months is the Port Townsend Community Center. The General Meeting is divided into three segments: 

6:30 PM - Beginning Mac Presentation
7:00 PM - Business Meeting / Q & A Period
7:30 PM - Featured Presentation

You are welcome to attend any or all of these segments. This meeting is free and open to the public.
      Afternoon Class
The Monthly Afternoon Class covers a variety of topics related to both Mac and iOS devices. These are generally hands-on classes to help you better understand both the operating systems and the programs that run on them. This SIG meets on the fourth Friday of the month at the WSU Computer Room. These classes are free, but require reservations via our email list. Please subscribe to our email list above.

From time to time we record the audio and screen actions from presentations, or to illustrate answers to frequently asked questions. These screencasts can be a good source for video tutorials on Mac functions you may not be familiar with. To view these screencasts, please visit our Vimeo Gallery.
