“Introduction to the new
Mac operating system:
macOS 10.14 Mojave”
Presented by Jim Macak,
Double Click President
“Simply powerful” is Apple’s catch-phrase for its new Macintosh operating system, macOS 10.14, code-named “Mojave.” Apple says “macOS Mojave brings new features inspired by its most powerful users but designed for everyone.”
Released on September 24, the Mojave operating system includes a new “dark mode,” time-shifting desktop pictures, a new “Stacks” system for managing desktop clutter, new ways to view and act on Finder items, a more functional “Quick look” that allows you to edit files, a new Screenshot utility, “Continuity Camera” which makes a just-taken photo taken with your iPhone automatically appear on your Mac, multi-person FaceTime, and four new apps: News, Stocks, Home and Voice Memos. All this and more are under the umbrella of privacy and security enhancements.
At our October Double Click meeting we’ll show and discuss these new features and provide some advice on installing Mojave on your Mac.
Every Double Click monthly Main Meeting starts with a presentation tailored especially for “beginners.” The session hosts alternate between Steve Parker and Michael Yanikowski. Steve, the long-standing Beginner’s Group Coordinator, demonstrates macOS X tips and basic techniques. Michael, an avid user of Apple mobile devices, presents basic information about iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches.
Alternating on a monthly basis, their presentations are a popular feature of the first part of every Double Click Main Meeting. New and experienced users are always sure to learn a tip or three from Steve and Michael. (If you have a tip, bring yours along to share!)
Regular Main Meetings of Double Click, Inc., the macOS User Group of Milwaukee, are held once a month on a Sunday afternoon beginning at 1:00 p.m.
We meet on the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee campus in Room E190 of the Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (EMS) Building at 3200 North Cramer Street. Thus, the EMS building is located just north of Kenwood Boulevard between N. Cramer Street and N. Maryland Avenue.
Parking is available in a surface lot with its entrance off of Kenwood Blvd. or in the EMS Building underground parking ramp with its entrance off of N. Cramer St. (The EMS parking ramp entrance is to the right (not ahead) once you have driven into the parking access area. There is a fee for parking on campus.
All regular meetings are free and open to the public.
