Lost in Leopard

As a new computer student I find your Mac OSX Leopard MM so detailed and complete that it's beyond my ability. Do you publish a Leopard book for a rookie user? Thanks.

  • Hi,

    If you're new to using a Mac, but are familiar with Windows, a book that may be helpful to you is Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Leopard Edition. This book introduces you to Leopard in the context of what you know from Windows.

    Feel free to write us here with questions about the book or about using your Mac, we'd be glad to help you. Are there any particular tasks that you're trying to understand? We can help you find the correct section of the book and clarify anything that's not clear.

    If neither of these books seems like the right book, I wanted to make sure you knew that we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. You can find details at

    Also, there are some video tutorials from that might be useful to you. There's a series about Leopard that is available with a subscription, but some videos about the basics are available for free. You can find them at (Check out the Introduction and Welcome to Leopard sections).

    I hope this helps, and please let us know if there's anything we can do for you.

    • Rachel James: thanks. I taught myself a little bit of Windows to use web, send email, etc, but not enough for Switching to Mac. The videos from Lynda look the best for now. I'm in my 60's and always had employees who did computer work for me and never needed to learn how to use. Now one must use computers for everything and I'm never to old to learn something new. My most frustrating problem is hitting a wrong key and losing the page i was working on and not knowing how to bring that page back again. Thanks again, Orly Fudd.
