Usage of the Macbook compared to windows laptops

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have recently bought a Macbook Pro. I am very unfamiliar with the use of the Mac OS X. Having mostly been on windows all of my life, I would like to know the basic commands to operate the Mac. For instance, how to use the usual shortcuts such as the copy and paste commands. Also, what are the main advantages between the Mac OS and Windows OS?

The major difference between keyboard shortcuts in OS X and Windows is the use of the “command” key as a modifier key. Consult GUI menus for the shortcuts for common tasks. Familiarize yourself with BASH (bourne again shell) if you would like to manipulate your system on a deeper level. If you are a casual user, OS X is no different from Windows. It just has a slightly different environment that you must familiarize yourself with through daily use and/or literature. Consult the literature bundled with your OS and that which is available on the OS website.


There are no advantages to OS X in comparison to Windows. Your experience with the system depends entirely on how you choose to use it.
