If you are an Apple user then you have more than likely been waiting in ancipation of the release of macOS Ventura. Well it is now here to download.
There are a number of new features
The feature I want to talk about is "Stage Manager". This feature is going to improve the way you work. As you can see from the image of my desktop screen in the photo above there are serveral apps on the left hand side that are open and available for easy access. For me this is a big deal. If you are like me you probably work in a number of different applications and it is pain not being able to easily go between them. Stage Manager fixes this for you. It has the apps open and to the side of your desktop so that you can quickly navigate in and out of your apps making your work flow easier.
To enable Stage Manager go to System- Preferences- Control Center- and add it to your Menu bar. See image below.
Once you have enabled it in your Menu bar you will see the following:
Now you can open the apps that you frequently work out of and they will appear to the left of your desktop. This is already a game changer for me.
iPad OS 16 also has released Stage Manager.
If you have an iPad that is one of the following than you can setup Stage Manager on your iPad to increase your work flow productivity.
iPad Pro 12.9 inch (3rd Gen or later)
iPad Pro 11 inch (1st gen or later)
iPad Air (5th gen)
