When you’re no longer a novice to Mavericks and the basics of the Finder, direct your attention to a number of more advanced topics ’n’ tricks. These will turn you into a MacBook power user — which, after all, is the goal of every civilized being on Planet Earth.

Consider this chapter a grab bag of Mavericks knowledge. Sure, I jump around a little, but these topics are connected by a common thread: All are surefire problem solvers and speeder-uppers. (I can’t believe the latter is really a word, but evidently it is. My editors told me so.)
