Tutorial Description

You're probably very familiar with System Preferences if you've been using macOS for any length of time. Over the years, however, Apple has added more and more functionality and options into the various Preference Panes so it's hard to know every trick buried within.

The full tutorial covers:

  • Organize Alphabetically & Search
  • Find Your IMEI and Serial Number
  • Accessibility
  • No Click with Three-finger Drag
  • Control & Scroll to Zoom In
  • Let Siri Read to You

I’m so glad it was instructional for you, Jeff. I took a risk trying to teach features of an OS-level tool that everyone has been using forever. You made my day - thanks for taking the time to write.
