My wife bought a Macbook Air 2 days ago and she assumed I could get her on line and up to speed quickly.

That being said I was able to set it up - connected to our wireless network and installed our HP printer - hoo rah.

Unfortunately, that's where I came to grindoing halt. I can't even figure out how to create new :confused:folders to store Word & Excel files I want to transfer from her PC.

Is there a Mac Functionality reference that provides some sort of translation from PC to Mac functionality?

Cmd + Shift + N or Right Click, New Folder will work to create a new folder.

edit: Unlike in Windows or Linux, use Cmd instead of Ctrl for most of your keyboard shortcuts. That would probably be why you can't figure out how to make new folders and other stuff.

There are good reference pages on the Apple site--here is a good place to start:

Apple has the following site available to support "switchers:"

Note that these were written with Snow Leopard in mind, but most of the information also applies to Lion.

Ooooh, I'm a switcher. Sounds like a "swinger". But less risky. :cool:
