Chapter 1. Mac Os X Annoyances > MORE USEFUL MAC HELP

MORE USEFUL MAC HELP

The Annoyance:

Mac OS X's help system isn't always what I'd call "helpful." It tells me the obvious, like how to turn something on or off, but it often lacks specifics about my own configuration.

The Fix:

The theme of the help system seems to be, "Help, schmelp. You'll figure it out." Fortunately, there is additional help available. Use Sherlock to look up Apple's Knowledge Base articles, which often give you the nuts and bolts details that the help system lacks. Apple has published thousands of articles, many of which point out known bugs with certain software and peripherals and provide workarounds or outright fixes.
