The News app on your Mac (and on your iPhone and iPad) is a pretty cool way to get curated content, but when you’d like to share a link from it, you may decide to open the article in Safari first and then send your link along. We’ve got the scoop on how (and why)!

The Mac’s Automator program is something of an unsung hero for creating actions that’ll let you perform tasks quickly and repeatedly without having to walk through the same steps many times.

Microsoft Word gives you the ability to highlight parts of your document using drawing tools, and heck, the tools are fun to mess around with anyway. Today’s article will walk you through how to use this feature (and why the buttons might be greyed out and unusable).
