How do I right click if I don't have a two button mouse?

How do I take a picture of my screen?

How do I close all open applications quickly?

When should I run updates?

What is the password needed to install updates?

Application is not responding, can't quit or anything, what next?

 

 

 


                                                                                                                                                                           Return to top                                                                                                                                                            
If you have a single button mouse, where it says, “right click”, substitute with a “control click”. 


                                                                                                                                                                           Return to top                                                                                                                                                           
To capture your screen image you can perform a “screen shot” by clicking command+shift+3

You can capture parts of your screen by clicking control+shift+4.  This will give you cross hairs and allow you to draw a box around whatever part of your screen you want to capture.


                                                                                                                                                                           Return to top                                                                                                                                                                
Hold down the command key and tab through applications that are open, without removing your finger from the command key you can click Q to close applications. This is possibly the fastest way you’All find to close several applications in quick succession.


                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                                                           Return to top                     

Updates should run automatically, you may choose to wait until a convenient time for those that require a restart. Don't wait too long to install critical or system updates. It is a good idea to run them at night, just start the install when you leave your classroom at the end of the day.


                                                                                                                                                                          Return to top 

When running automatic updates my computer asks for a password, we don’t put in teachers passwords, to install updates you leave the password file blank and click on return.


                                                                                                                                                                          Return to top 

Sometimes applications in OS X will hang or freeze. You will usually know this when you see the spinning pinwheel cursor (sometimes referred to as the beach ball) for several minutes or more.
There are several ways to force quit an application. The simple ways:

  • Select Force Quit... from the Apple menu. Sometimes you will have to click to another application to get the Apple menu to respond. This will bring up the Force Quit Applications window; stuck applications may appear in this list in red. You can then select the misbehaving application and click the Force Quit button. Occasionally you will have to dismiss this window and repeat the process to really get the app to quit, but this should be rare. If necessary, you can Force Quit multiple applications from this window.
  • Use the keystroke apple-option-esc to bring up the same Force Quit window.
  • Control-click/right-click on an application's icon in the Dock. Usually you can simply quit an application from this menu. A stuck application will often say Force Quit in place of Quit, though you can hold down the option key if it does not.
