Take Control of High Sierra

Head off into High Sierra with confidence!

Looking for a high-quality, in-depth guide to High Sierra? Look no further than Take Control of High Sierra by former Macworld editor Scholle McFarland! An expanded version of Scholle’s popular Crash Course on macOS (previously for Sierra and El Capitan), Take Control of High Sierra covers all the changes Apple has made in High Sierra, and how best to adapt them to your own needs.

Early Access Version: We are releasing a preliminary version of this book while High Sierra is still in beta testing. As soon as possible after High Sierra ships (the same day, if we can manage it), we will release a free update to version 1.1 of this book, which will cover all the changes in High Sierra that occur between now and then.

You’ll learn great details about High Sierra, like how it’s now possible to take live photos of a FaceTime conversation, type instead of talk to Siri, and easily share files through iCloud. You’ll also learn about the big changes Apple has made behind the scenes in High Sierra, including rolling out a new file system, improved video support, and support for VR. In addition, Scholle explains what has changed in Apple apps, including Safari, Mail, and Photos.

You’ll also discover lots of helpful tips on using High Sierra, including how to:

  • Find files, tweak System Preferences, and control apps (like iTunes) with Siri
  • Use Spotlight to find files and facts from all kinds of sources
  • Create tabs in a variety of Apple and third-party apps (not just Safari)
  • Open Mission Control view to easily see all of your windows at once
  • Navigate Notification Center, including the new Now Playing widget in High Sierra
  • Update your Safari preferences for specific sites and preventing advertisers from tracking your searches
  • Create, sync, and organize your Notes, and use new High Sierra features to Pin a Note and Add a Table in Notes
  • Use Universal Clipboard to copy and paste between Macs
  • Share files instantly between Macs, iPhones, and iPads with AirDrop
  • Use iCloud Drive to collaborate with other users
  • Set up separate user accounts to allow multiple people to use the same Mac
Update Plans

August 27, 2017 – We are planning to release a free update to version 1.1 of this book shortly after High Sierra ships (day-and-date if possible). That update will cover any changes between the beta versions of High Sierra and the release version.

The Author

Scholle McFarland has been covering the Mac since 1996 as an editor at MacUser magazine and then Macworld. During that time, she witnessed Apple transform from everyone’s favorite “doomed” company to everyone’s actually favorite company and is still amazed by the whole thing.

When she’s not working as a freelance writer and editor, Scholle (“Sholly”) likes to hang out with her family, friends, and many animals in beautiful Portland, Oregon.
