    I just bought me a new Mac today. I am a old Windows user. I put a lot of my documents on flash drives. to get your documents on your Mac do you just plug in the flash drive to the USB ports on the back & drag & drop drop the files

    Congrats on your new iMac. As for Facebook, no you access FB from the web for desktop computers.

    Facebook doesn't have an app, but if you use Twitter there is an official app and 3rd party (like Tweetbot)

    Looks like a 3rd party's attempt to create an app to post to facebook.

    tap on the trackpad and hold, then draw a box around the items you want, assuming they're near each other.

    if not, the COMMAND ⌘ key works, just hold and click each item. Not the control key.

    Yes, I believe so, though I usually take a call on my iMac. I've never picked up on my iPhone and then switched to the iMac.

    As asked, need more info. Does the Mail app beach ball before opening or does it open and then beach ball.? Specs on your Mac, like what hard drive (SSD or Standard Drive). Web base Mail app or Apple Mail App? Any info you can provide will help. Thanks!
