Overview

So you're finally ready to find out what all the fuss is about. Whether you're switching from Windows or upgrading from an older Mac OS, this task-based guide represents the surest way to go from 0 to 60 in no time flat with Apple's much anticipated Mac OS X Tiger—more mature, powerfully enhanced, and with more than 200 new features that will knock your socks off. In this thoroughly revised bestseller, Maria Langer walks readers through the process of installing and configuring Tiger, then introduces the Mac OS desktop, including the Dock and the Sidebar, before moving on to more advanced Finder techniques, application basics, printing and faxing, connecting to the Internet, account management, configuring your Mac for multiple users, and more. Weighing in at over 700 pages, this new edition also offers plenty of coverage on what's new in Mac OS X Tiger, including Spotlight, the search tool that helps you find anything on your Mac instantly; multi-way video in iChat AV; the enhanced Mail application; Automator, which lets you automate repetitive manual tasks; Tiger's ultra-useful mini-applications (known as "Dashboard Widgets"); and more. Rounded out with plenty of tips, tricks, and sage advice, this book is equally useful for Macintosh novices as well as early adopters looking for a comprehensive reference on what's new in this much-talked-about Mac OS upgrade.

    A Great Book! Thorough and Well Illustrated!

    Wow! I can't believe how much is in this book. I'd bought an earlier edition of the book for Mac OS 10.2 and was a bit disappointed. But this edition of the book is more than twice the size and covers just about every feature of Tiger. A great resource!
