Milestone: 500 Patrons Keeping MacMost Ad-Free!
MacMost passed a significant milestone this week. There are now more than 500 people supporting MacMost through Patreon and keeping the site, podcast and newsletter ad-free! Every time I look at I love seeing it without all of those sometimes-trashy ads that adorn other sites.

Out of the 500, 362 are part of Club MacMost and get my special posts and 50% discounts on my newest courses. As the members of Club MacMost know, they are not just MacMost supporters. They have also become my advisors as well, guiding me with suggestions and feedback.

Thanks to everyone for your support! -- Gary

If you need to open, edit, create, save or collaborate using Microsoft Word .doc or .docx files, there are several ways to do it on your Mac. The best way, but one that will cost some money, is to simply get Word for Mac from the Mac App Store and pay for a Microsoft subscription. But many Mac users simply using Pages instead. You can also get a couple of good third-party free office apps that will handle Word. There are even more options that don't require downloading anythng at all.

If you have moved your Mac's Spotlight menu window away from the center of the screen and want to get it back to its original position, you can do so by clicking and holding the Spotlight button in the menu bar. Hold it for about a second and it will move into place.
