Whether it’s your first Mac or you’re already a regular user, you’ll want to get to grips with these four awesome Mac-hacks. 

Split the screen 

When you require maximum productivity, splitting the screen is a real nifty trick. To do so, first you need to hold down the green button that would be used to maximize the app. You’ll find this button on the left-hand side at the top. Simply left-click the button, and then you can drag the window or app to whichever side you prefer. Once you’ve done this, open another app or window to go on the opposite side. When you’ve got some great projects in the pipeline; two screens are better than one! 

Easy password finder 

Feel like you’re forever forgetting your passwords and changing them? With a Macbook you can have the keychain feature remember every one of your passwords and recall them whenever you wish. If you forget your wifi password or are in a new place, it’s easy to use Keychain Access to find your password. First, you can open up the Keychain Access feature and then find the connection that you are looking for. Next, you will need to double-click on the keychain that matches the correct server set identifier. From here you should find an option that reads ‘show password.’
