Tip from Roman: Convert Image to Quick Action
Introduced in macOS Mojave, Quick Actions are accessible if you right-click on an item; the Quick Action menu is at the bottom and when you select it, a set of tasks will appear. With macOS Monterey, Apple added a Convert Image Quick action, which allows you to convert image files to a different format without having to open an application. For example, you can select a group of HEIC files in the Finder, then perform a quick action to convert those files to JPEG.
Jason’s advice: NetworkQuality test
In macOS Monterey, you can test your internet connection speed with a tool available in Terminal. Launch the Terminal application (in Applications/Utilities), then type network quality and your Mac will perform a connection test using Apple servers.
Tip from Michael: Quickly navigate to any location in a save dialog
When you save a file and want to save it to a specific location, type the forward slash (/) on your keyboard when the save dialog box appears. Then, a “Go to Folder” window appears allowing you to quickly navigate anywhere on your Mac. It will also save your recent locations so you don’t have to retype long strings of folders.
