New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use.

Take Control of Apple TV, Chapter 9: Present with Apple TV

Send Article to a Friend

This article is a pre-release chapter in the upcoming “Take Control of Apple TV,” by Josh Centers, scheduled for public release in January 2014. Apart from “Chapter 1: Introducing Apple TV,” these chapters are available only to TidBITS members; see “‘Take Control of Apple TV’ Streaming in TidBITS” for details.


Present with Apple TV

With AirPlay and the Apple TV, it has never been easier to put what you want on the big screen, making the Apple TV a fantastic device for giving presentations.

In this chapter, I show you how to connect your Apple TV to a projector or SMART Board (an interactive whiteboard and projector commonly used in schools), as well as suggest what a traveling presenter should assemble in order to Make an Apple TV Presentation Kit. I also give you some ideas about how you can use an Apple TV to display presentations, project paper documents, Run Conference Room Display, engage in video conferences, and even keep a rowdy class in line.

Connect the Apple TV to a Projector

If your projector or SMART Board has an HDMI input, you’re all set! But chances are good that you’ll need an adapter to connect from the HDMI port on your Apple TV to a VGA or DVI port on the projector or SMART board.
