Using a Mac has always inspired great work. Now macOS Mojave brings new features inspired by its most powerful users but designed for everyone. Stay better focused on your work in Dark Mode. Automatically organise files using Stacks. Take more kinds of screenshots with less effort. Try three handy new built-in apps, and discover even more in the redesigned Mac App Store. Now you can get more out of every click.
Introducing two new time-shifting desktops that match the hour of the day wherever you are.
Stacks keeps your desktop free of clutter by automatically organising your files into related groups. Arrange by kind to see images, documents, spreadsheets, PDFs and more sort themselves. You can also group your work by date. And if you tag files with project-specific metadata, like client names, sorting by stacks becomes a powerful way to manage multiple jobs. To scrub through a stack, use two fingers on a trackpad or one finger on a Multi-Touch mouse. To access a file, click to expand the stack, then open what you need.
With macOS Mojave, the Finder becomes even more of a doer. Now you can quickly locate a file by how it looks. Instantly see all of a file’s metadata. And perform Quick Actions on files without ever opening an app.
|Gallery View||Quick Actions||Complete Metadata|
|With Gallery View, you can scroll through big previews of your files to visually identify the one you’re looking for. So finding that image of the smiling girl by the Ferris wheel or the PDF with a colourful pie chart has never been faster.||With Quick Actions in the Preview pane, you can work on files directly from the Finder. Rotate images, create PDFs, trim video and more — without having to open an app or rename and save your file. You can even apply them to multiple files at once, or create a custom Quick Action based on an Automator workflow.||Metadata provides the key details of any file. Now the Preview pane can display all of a file’s metadata, or you can customise it to show just the metadata you want to see. So if you’re looking for a specific image, you can quickly confirm the camera model, aperture, exposure and more.|
Work on a file without even opening it.
Now a tap of your space bar provides more than just a quick look at a file. It gives you the power to perform actions specific to the kind of file you’re viewing — without ever launching an app. So you can mark up a PDF, rotate and crop an image, even trim audio and video. And when you’re ready, you can share straight from Quick Look too.
Screenshots are now a snap.
With macOS Mojave, all the controls you need to grab any type of screenshot are one simple shortcut away. Just launch the new Screenshot utility or press Shift-Command-5. An easy-to-use menu includes new screen-recording tools and options for setting a start timer, showing the cursor and even choosing where you’d like to save your screenshots. Take a screenshot and a thumbnail of it animates to the corner of the screen. Leave it there to automatically save it to the destination you’ve chosen. You can drag it directly into a document or click it to mark it up and share it straightaway — without having to save a copy. It’s more than easy; it’s clutter-free.
