Mac OS is a proprietary closed-source operating system. Mac OS uses the HFS Plus (HFS+) file system. HFS stands for Hierarchical File System and is the primary file system used by Mac OS. Apple devices have several features that are unique to the Mac OS. The following table describes some of these features. Feature Description Gestures Gestures are specific finger motions that are used to perform a specific function on a Mac OS system. They are used by Apple systems that use an Apple Multi- Touch trackpad, a Magic Mouse, or a touchscreen. Below are just some of the gestures that are available on Mac OS: Right-click: Tap with two fingers to right-click. Smart zoom: Double-tap with two fingers to zoom in on a web page, image, or document (double-tap again to zoom out). Scroll: Slide up or down using two fingers to scroll up or down. Zoom: Spread two fingers apart to zoom in. Bring fingers back together to zoom out. Page navigation: Slide two fingers left or right to navigate between pages in a document. Mission Control: Slide four fingers straight up to open Mission Control. All apps: Slide four fingers straight down to display all windows of the active app. Remote Disc Because many modern Apple devices are being manufactured without a CD or DVD installed, Mac OS offers the Remote Disc feature. With Remote Disc: The CD or DVD can be shared on the network.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
