In addition to using the well-known keyboard shortcuts, you can also take a screenshot from the Preview app. Choose File, Take Screenshot and then choose the whole screen, a window or a selection. The advantage to using this instead of the shortcuts is that it opens as a new ...

In MacOS and iOS, iCloud Photos settings has options for three services: (1) ‘iCloud Photo Library’, (2) ‘My Photo Stream’ and (3) ‘iCloud Photo Sharing’. I’m a bit confused. Can you clarify what these three services do? Do some of their functions overlap? How do they impact...
