Mac OS X Panther Tutorial

Virtual Training Company author Jesse Feiler guides users through Mac OS X Panther, the fourth major release from Mac in three years. Designed with creative professionals, network administrators, and developers in mind, OS X Panther offers major breakthroughs in innovation, functionality, reliability and ease of use. The new feature, Exposé, allows users to gain access and neatly arrange open windows with a single keystroke. A new Finder makes organizing and navigating through files and folders easier than ever. A full suite of Internet software increases communication opportunities, while a host of built-in tools allows users to control and customize their Mac. Additional network services allow users to easily connect a computer to any wired, or wireless, Mac, Unix, or Windows based network. To start learning now, simply click on a movie link below.
