|To learn how to use a Mac|
Don't move the computer. The Ethernet cords are short in places. If you move the computer you could break the jack making the computer unusable.
Don't touch the screen.
Don't clean the screen. If it is dirty let me know and I'll clean it.
Don't plug card readers into the back. Plug them into the left side of the keyboard. If that doesn't work see me for help.
Don't bring any food in the lab. Water only.
Only use the applications you need for your class.

Keyboard Differences: On a Mac you use the command key instead of the control key on a PC. To copy on a Mac it is - command (right next to the space bar) C. To paste - command V, to undo - command Z, etc.
The command key is circled in red.
Mouse: To do a "right click" on a Mac with a one button mouse you hold down the control key (bottom left) and click. Macs can use two button mice. I'll try to get some next year.
To take a screen shot: press command, shift, and 4 at the same time, and drag a box around the area you want to capture. Let go of the mouse button to capture. The screen shot will be on the desktop. It will be named picture 1, picture 2, etc.
