How to Use Spaces on Your Mac And Get Organized

How to Use Spaces on Your Mac And Get Organized
If you’re looking for a way to organize the desktop on your Mac, the Spaces feature lets you arrange your apps and programs across as many as 16 different virtual desktops.

Using Mac Spaces

In order to use Spaces on your Mac you’re going to first need to open Mission Control. Here you will see the desktops you have active. Each numbered desktop icon represents a separate virtual desktop. Since you have up to 16 to access, there is no reason to crowd everything onto just one or two spaces. Now that you’re in Mission Control it is time to organize your desktops with Spaces.

  • Move your cursor to the upper right corner of the Mission Control screen and you’ll see a large “+” sign appear.
  • Click on the “+” to open a Space.
  • Drag and drop the apps or programs you want into the desired Space.
  • Delete a space by hovering the cursor over the thumbnail and clicking on the “X” button.

To move between your Spaces there are easy navigation tips and tricks. First, give each of your Spaces a different wallpaper so you recognize it easily at first glance (i.e. your Space with your accounting information has a money background). To move between Spaces you can just do a four-finger swipe left or right. To move instantly to a specific Space number, just use the shortcut method of pressing CTRL and the number of the Space. Since there are up to 16 numbered Spaces it might help to have a cheat sheet of what is where if you want to use this keyboard shortcut.

So while your Mac might just have one screen, it doesn’t mean you need to cram everything onto that one space. Use Spaces to organize your apps and program and the shortcuts described here to access them with ease.
