Public beta test macOS operating system

With macOS Sonoma, the next update of the operating system is in the starting blocks. The release is announced for this fall.

The anticipation of the latest features and improvements is certainly often irresistible.

Controlling Merlin Project With the Keyboard

Charge Apple Magic Mouse

Do you sometimes feel the same way, you absolutely have to finish a job, but you forgot to charge the wireless mouse? With the current Magic Mouse from Apple, you have a problem because you can't use it while it's charging. If you are lucky, you still have a mouse as a spare. I do not have one.

Good thing I like to work with the Mac keyboard shortcuts anyway, so I know many by heart.

⌘S for saving a file or
⌘P for opening the print menu

are regularly in use - even if the mouse is not exactly down.
