    Wow!, Gary, this tutorial is wonderful!! I wish it was something that I could print out instead of having to remember or review this tutorial over and over. Thank you for this and every tutorial you prepare and share.

    I agree with Bob Riley! This is quite a fact-loaded tutorial that needs a printed ‘cheat-sheet’.
    I also thank Gary for all he has shared over the years.
    It’s amazing to me that, having used Safari for as long as it has existed, I never realized that that little ‘download icon’ gave me the ability to directly drag&drop a newly downloaded file to a different location… sigh.

    Easy to print shortcuts. Drag on bottom right of Gary’s post to enlarge it to full size where you can read entire post without scrolling. Then, copy and paste to Text File and print.

    “The standard way to switch between windows in Mac apps is to use Command and the key to the left of the one key on US keyboards.”

    On a wireless Apple UK magic keyboard it is the key to the left of “z”.

    Thanks Gary! One item I really like that I don’t think was mentioned was the ability to “pin” a tab for a frequently visited website. I have 3 of these pinned on every safari page, and use them constantly. Here’s Apple’s instructions: “drag the tab with the website you want to pin to the left side of the tab bar. When the tab shrinks and displays the website’s icon or initial, drop it in place. You can also choose Window > Pin Tab, or Control-click a tab, then , then choose Pin Tab”

    I highlighted it, copy and paste in Pages. Then I separated its topics into paragraphs than print.
