With a few clicks, it’s possible to adjust the appearance and behavior of your dock in order to make it better suited for use with your iMac Pro and other Apple devices.

You can also manage which items appear in your Dock by simply dragging-and-dropping them from Finder into it. You can even create folders within the Dock by dragging-and-dropping multiple files or folders onto one another. This allows for fast access to frequently used documents, applications or even folders of applications like Adobe Creative Suite products or Microsoft Office applications.

By customizing the Dock settings and arranging items as needed within its confines, you can set aside valuable space on your iMac Pro without sacrificing quick access to things like favorite apps and documents all thanks to how easily customizable the dock is!

Using the Mission Control feature

The Mission Control feature of an Apple iMac Pro is an invaluable tool for multitasking. It helps you quickly identify and rearrange windows and group content across all applications into a single, graphical interface.

Within the Mission Control window, you will find Spaces. This is where you can create virtual desktops to organize your MacOS environment by task or subject. You can drag windows into different spaces as needed so they stay out of the way while you list available applications or locate a particular file.

You can also set up backdrop images for each space (desktop) to keep things organized and easily distinguishable when switching between them with a single click in the MacOS dock. To turn on this feature:

  1. Navigate to System Preferences
  2. Click on Desktop & Screen Saver
  3. In the “Desktop” tab, click Choose Folder
  4. Then select a different image for each Space in your mission control screen
  5. Once everything is set up as desired, it’s easy to switch between Spaces by either swiping with three fingers on your trackpad (or pressing Control + an arrow key), or simply clicking on the Spaces icon in the Dock at the bottom of your screen.

The Finder is the default file-management system on the Apple Mac and iOS devices. Working with the Finder allows you to easily locate and view your files, as well as move and copy them from one location to another.

When you open a window in the Finder, you’ll see two panes. The left pane displays a list of folders or drives that contain marked files, while the right pane shows what is in the currently selected folder. You can also customize your view of files by selecting different views: icon view clusters files by type, list view offers detailed information about each file, column view shows contents within folders as “columns” so you can easily navigate around complex directory structures, and Cover Flow show visual previews of documents with accompanying metrics like size or date modified to help you quickly find what you need.

You can access commonly used applications directly from the Dock at the bottom of your screen. You can also drag and drop files onto applications in order to open them quickly – no searching through menus required! Additionally, if you right-click on any file or folder in Finder, it will bring up a contextual menu that contains all kinds of useful functions such as Copy/Paste/Cut/Create Folder/Search This File and many more editing functions.

Using these handy tools will help maximize your productivity on an Apple iMac Pro!

Setting up multiple desktops

Having multiple desktops is one of the most effective ways to boost your productivity while using an Apple iMac Pro. Multiple desktops offer a range of benefits, including increased efficiency and helping reduce desktop clutter.

Creating and managing multiple Mac desktops is quite simple, offering a great way to better organize your workflow. The process involves creating each desktop – meaning assigning it its own display setting – reorganizing windows and applications onto different desktops, and possible naming them:

Once you’ve created a few new virtual Mac desktops, here’s how to switch between them:

  • Swipe three fingers left or right on your trackpad (or with mouse go to Settings > Mission Control)
  • Move the pointer to the top edge of the screen, then click between the active virtual desktops (make sure ‘Show Desktop’ is checked in Mission Control settings)
  • Press `Ctrl + Arrow` keys to quickly switch between them (you can setup keyboard shortcuts for this in Keyboard > Shortcuts > Mission Control)

Once you have all your applications organized on separate Mac desktops, here’s how you can switch back and forth between them quickly:

  • Use Spotlight search (`Cmd+Space`) to open apps that exist in different spaces
  • Take advantage of “App Expose” shortcut `F3`, which will show all running applications at once on any desktop
  • Opt for third party applications when dealing with complex multitasking – like Moom app that makes organizing windows easier. You can save the window arrangement as “preset” so they open up automatically at the same place next time.

Using the Spotlight search

Accessing the Spotlight search bar on Apple iMac Pro is one of the most effective and powerful productivity tools. It allows the user to search for files, documents, emails, images and other items on their hard disk drive without having to open individual applications or folders.

There are two ways to access a Spotlight search- either through a key command or by clicking the magnifying glass icon that appears in the top right corner of your Mac’s Desktop.

Once activated, users can type in their search criteria and get relevant results immediately. The text box that appears will suggest recommended terms as you start typing and it also has options to refine your query including narrowing down sources such as definitions from online databases, messages from specific email accounts, or documents with specific titles. Furthermore, since Spotlight remembers your previous searches, it makes it easier for you to rapidly find what you are looking for when doing further similar queries.

In addition to easily finding files stored on your Mac’s hard drive, Spotlight also enables users to look up information about places like restaurants or locations nearby that can be accessed straight from the search bar itself—without needing an internet connection! Other useful tasks such as currency conversion or calculations may also be done as well by entering basic mathematical equations into the search query box. This is incredibly helpful if you do not have a calculator at hand or are in another country with different units (meters vs yards)!


Apple iMac pros offer a number of security features to keep your data safe and secure. These include password protected screen locks, encrypted data storage, and two-factor authentication. Additionally, the Apple iMac pro can be set up with a secure network that restricts access to certain sites and limits downloads.

Let’s take a look at some security tips and tricks you can use to keep your Apple imac pro safe and secure:

Setting up user accounts

When setting up user accounts on any system, it is important to ensure that the accounts are properly secured. User accounts should have a secure password that is regularly changed and should have specific levels of access and privileges depending on user need. It is essential to limit access to privileged accounts only as needed and monitor usage for any suspicious activity.

Strong passwords should contain at least 8 characters that include both uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, special characters, and not be easily guessed. You should also use multi-factor Authentication (MFA) whenever possible for added security.

Ensure that user data is encrypted when stored either in the cloud or on local storage systems to protect from data breaches or malicious attacks. Accounts with administrative privileges should be monitored more closely than regular user accounts as they typically have access to more sensitive data. Restricting users’ permissions can help mitigate risks associated with account compromise.

Finally, regularly train users on best security practices such as:

  • Avoiding public WiFi networks
  • Not sharing passwords with others
  • Cleaning up malicious emails etc.

Proper dissemination of this information helps minimize the risk of security breaches due to human error or negligence.

Enabling FileVault

FileVault is a full disk encryption feature of Apple’s Mac OS X operating system. It provides encryption for entire disk drives, protecting data from unauthorized access. Enabling FileVault is an important step in strengthening security on your Apple iMac Pro computer. With FileVault enabled, all your data, user accounts as well as the operating system itself are encrypted and secured with a 256-bit AES key.

Here are the steps you can take to enable FileVault on your iMac Pro computer:

  1. Open System Preferences and select Security & Privacy.
  2. On the FileVault tab, select “Turn On FileVault…”
  3. You will be prompted for an administrator password; enter it twice to confirm and enable FileVault encryption on your computer.
  4. You will then be prompted to create a recovery key so that you (or an authorized user) can access the drive if ever you forget your password or need to reset it; store this key in a safe place off-site and preferably offline as well, such as a USB drive or printed paper copy stored away from the computer in case of data/hard drive failure or theft/loss of the device with the recovery key stored within it.
  5. Once this step is complete, Encrypted Media Mode will allow you to apply specific rules regarding how accessible certain portions of the disk are, such as network shares or iCloud Drive files – this feature is optional but highly recommended for high security applications such as banking or other sensitive documents pertaining to your day-to-day business operations; this option can be accessed from Security & Privacy > General > Encrypted Media Mode after enabling Filevault.

Following these steps should ensure that any sensitive data stored on your iMac Pro remains safe and secure against unauthorized users even if any combination of theft/loss of device knowledge or physical access occurs.

Setting up a firewall

A firewall is a system that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. By setting up a firewall, you can protect your Apple iMac Pro from malicious attacks by hackers or viruses.

When setting up a firewall for your Apple iMac Pro, it is important to make sure that you understand the different protocols used for communication, such as HTTP and FTP, in order to ensure that only the traffic which should be allowed into or out of the machine is processed by the firewall. Additionally, it is necessary to set strong passwords and configure access control rules in order to keep unauthorized users from accessing your data or using your computer in malicious ways. It is also important to ensure that you update your firewall regularly so that new security loopholes can be patched and vulnerabilities fixed.

By setting up a secure and well-configured firewall on your Apple iMac Pro, you can rest assured that your computer and data will be safe from malicious attacks.
