Why aren't more Mac owners computer literate?
They would be, if they had a computer.

Mac did a great sales job back in the eighties and nineties.  They put computers in schools, gratis...and a whole generation grew up being Apple-literate.  I was consulting for IBM at the time, and we all watched and marveled at what a great marketing idea that was.

My daughter grew up devoted to Apple products.

The 70s 1975 to be exact. And believe me when i say Mac/Pc
rivalry is rarely nasty and mostly done in jest, certainly on my part

well yes America was always good at marketing, but lets not forget computers are an English invention

Is it a preview? Maybe one of those things that's intended to be a feature rather than a glitch Smile

I'm not really a Mac user either

but pretty sure you have to highlight the specific part and press 'apple key' +C at the same time.

a computer with only one mouse button No No No

Storm I'm moving this thread to the tech area, as Veya or others, will more than likely see it there rather than here.

And maybe this isn't the case anymore -- it's been years since I had to use a Mac, and that was only at work -- but a highlight + click hold (or long click) might bring up a menu as well.
