If, however, one is obliged to do the switching from Windows to Mac, for business reasons or because you have received a MacBook as a gift, you need to "listen" to some advice from those who have already "migrated". A few days will be enough to get used to the new graphic interface and the new working environment: the differences between the two operating systems are many, but not so insurmountable as to require months of adaptation. And probably, after the first few weeks you will also begin to love your new one MacBook. Here are a few tips to follow to make the transition from Windows to Mac.

On the Mac the situation is slightly different: with the keyboard it is possible to perform different actions, saving time and steps. For example, by pressing Command+Q it will close the program you are using directly.

Take advantage of the features of the touchpad

Il MacBook touchpad it is slightly different than that of computers Windows. Apple has developed special features for the touchpad to perform the same actions as a mouse. For example, by placing three fingers on the touchpad you can switch from one program to another very quickly.
