There is no Mac Users meeting this month—our next one will be January 27. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. A reminder, however, that TVCUC dues are due, in case you haven’t yet logged into TellicoLife to join for 2020.

You don’t have to settle for using Apple’s images as your desktop background. You can use any photo from your library or image you can obtain as a desktop background.

Learn some useful everyday tips, tricks and techniques to make it easier to manage your files and folders in the macOS Catalina Finder. See how you can use things like Undo, Copy and Paste, the Path Bar, keyboard shortcuts and more to navigate around in the Finder and work with your files.
When working in apps on documents you can choose to have one document open per window, or multiple documents in tabs in that same window. Windows can be floating, resizable objects on your desktop, or you can go into full screen mode to fill the screen with the window or split screen mode to share the screen with exactly two app windows. You can also combine windows, tabs, and screen modes to work in many different ways.

You can delete items you don’t want to keep or that you want to remove from taking up storage.
