Mac Tip of the Day: Log in Without Mouse

Filed under: Life with Mac — David Chu @ 5:39 pm

Mac is a graphics based OS system, you have to use mouse in most cases. Even though there some short-cut keys for quick access, not all the graphics items can be access by keys. However, I like to use keys instead of mouse if there is any way.

If you have set up users and password for Mac, you will see a log in window. You can use keyboard to make a selection by just typing the user name and then press enter key. After that, you just continue to type in your password.
