If command c is copy and cut, how do you specify to cut? Or is there just no cut option for macs?
CMD + X is CUT, but it does not work in Finder with Mac OS X 10.6 and earlier.
CMD + C is COPY, CMD + V is PASTE.
What finger do you use to press the cmd + shortcut key. With the control key on windows it makes since to use your left pinky for ctrl, then index/middle finger for the shortcut, but the cmd key seems to be kind of awkwardly placed. I'm sure I'll get used to it over time, but I can't figure out an easy way. Maybe thumb for cmd + regular finger for shortcut key?
Is there anything resembling/corresponding to a task manager on the MBA?
This is a silly little thing but I'm also wondering if I can get rid of the picture I was 'forced' to set up on my user ID. It wouldn't let me register it unless I took a photo
There's an Activity Monitor in the Utilities Folder within the Applications folder. You can also use CMD-Tab to tab through applications (similar to Alt-Tab in Windows).
I don't have the Mac in front of me, but I believe you can change the picture in System Preferences within the Users setting.
Another tip is that if you open up Finder and drag the Application folder to the right side of the Dock (right of the little "divider" near where the Trash Can is), it creates a shortcut that operates a little bit like the Start button in Windows.
These are great tips, thanks!
