OS X Mountain Lion from Apple has been around since a while and without a doubt, it has made its place in the world of technology. Like the previous updated OS X Snow Leopard, this one also brought a number of changes which built on the Apple's user experience. Success stories of the iPhone and iPad has led a lot of people to go for Macs in order to replace the PCs. An entire new generation of Mac users is under creation process and they require training. Some useful and easy tips are given below for all those who are new to MacBooks:

Sorting out Hot Corners

It is definitely one of the great features you will see in OS X. It is a very simple and easy way of managing your windows and basically keeping the desktop clean and tidy while you are working on your Mac. Working with an untidy desktop can be very messy at times and may also distract you while you are busy with the work. Now, Apple has changed its set up in OS X Mountain Lion, which is a problem for some new users. So you need to select System Preferences, then click on the Mission Control and select Hot Corners which you can see in bottom left of screen. Now you can set them as normal, selecting what happens as you go to every corner of the display. For instance, you want dragging the mouse to bottom left of your screen to show desktop, you do this setting here.

Getting rid of inverted scrolling

Such inverted scrolling has been a controversial inclusion of Apple in OS X. Usually, we all like it when we are using track pad, but are not big fans when we are opting for MacBook. What you need to do is, go to Trackpad which you can see in System Preferences, and uncheck the box for Scroll Direction Natural and thus get your problem fixed.

Closing a Program

Hitting the red cross icon on top left of window does not close the program like it does for Windows users. If you are willing to shut down any program completely, you need to long press its icon in dock and then hit close. It is essential to keep track of all the programs that you open otherwise your entire system may get slow.

Learn some gestures

The gestures are surely one of incredible additions which Apple has made to their latest OS X Mountain Lion. Now, it is possible to manipulate your whole operating system virtually one by using your fingers. Such gestures are simply too many to list in this article, but you can always go to Apple's official website to see the full list and learn the gestures.
