Easy and quick to get started

Chinese phonetic input method

Single or long press Ctrl+  or Command +   switch input method

  • Yahoo! Qimo Phonetic Fork Edition - Although it's outdated, I've used wheat and Wei Zhuyin and I've been crushed... In the end, I decided it was him. The usage habits are completely the same as Windows, except that the English input case is a bit sleepy.
  • Wheat Phonetic - Stable to use, not easy to pawn off. The obvious disadvantage is that punctuation ' Enter full-form symbols such as commas and periods in word selection (numbers).
  • Wei Zhuyin - a branch of wheat phonetic, the biggest advantage is that the input method of punctuation is the same as that of Windows. Other differences can refer to: What is the difference between Wei Zhuyin and Mai Zhuyin? -gitee/vChewing-macOS
    I myself like Wei Zhuyin very much, but I still have to switch back to the wheat Zhuyin for backup occasionally.

Windows, toolbar, dock management

  • Tile - Windows 7+-like edge automatic Snapping mechanism
  • uBar (Premium) - similar to the Windows 10 work bar, replace the original Dock, high customization
  • System Preferences > Mission Controls > Hot Zones
    Move the mouse to the lower left corner to open Launcherpad (application selection),
    Move the mouse to the lower right corner to display the desktop.

keyboard text manipulation

  • Home, End Button Reassignment - Changes Home, End button behavior to Windows-like text-oriented functionality. Do the following in Terminal or iterm 2:

    mkdir -p $HOME/Library/KeyBindings echo '{ /* Remap Home / End keys to be correct */ "\UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfLine:"; /* Home */ "\UF72B" = "moveToEndOfLine:"; / * End */ "$\UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfLineAndModifySelection:"; /* Shift + Home */ "$\UF72B" = "moveToEndOfLineAndModifySelection:"; /* Shift + End */ "^\UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfDocument:" ; /* Ctrl + Home */ "^\UF72B" = "moveToEndOfDocument:"; /* Ctrl + End */ "$^\UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfDocumentAndModifySelection:"; /* Shift + Ctrl + Home */ "$^ \UF72B" = "moveToEndOfDocumentAndModifySelection:"; /* Shift + Ctrl + End */ }' > $HOME/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict
  • Copy Less 2 (Freemium) - Scrapbook like Windows 10, 11

Mouse, trackpad assist

  • ThreeFinger - Enables a three-finger tap or click to trigger the middle mouse button to quickly close a tab and open a new tab.
  • exelban/stats - Free and open source menu bar CPU, RAM, battery status monitoring.

Seamless screen switching across platforms (software KVM)

My three-screen main screen is 144hz with macOS and the secondary screen next to it is Windows 11.

  • Barrier - Very convenient to use, scrapbook records are also synced. The disadvantage is that the setting interface GUI is blunt, and you may not know how to use it at first.

download software

  • The advantage of Baidu Cloud HD - Apple Silicon version is that you can directly install the iOS version, so you don't have to worry about the ransomware problem of Chinese software.
  • Electorrent - A cross-platform BT remote control software that allows you to download the browser's magnetic link painlessly.

decompression software

  • Bandizip (Premium) - Korean zip compression software that supports multi-language encoding, supports 7z and other formats.


The Office downloaded from the mall are all 365 subscriptions, if you have an educational account, you can use it. Go to the university to see if they have access to OneDrive/Outlook.
If not, what you need is the LTSC version, and you will find that it is easier to bypass than Windows (if you know it).

network hard drive

  • WebDAV - The way the Finder is wired is Go > Connect To Server

multimedia video

  • Spotify - AppStore does not have it, please download it from Spotify official website.

Terminal (CMD, Bash)

  • iTerm - Try this better Terminal software before turning Terminal black yourself.

Web browsing related

  • Adguard (Freemium) - Blocks adware, it's special on the home version every now and then, you can pay attention to the PTT money-saving version.


  • Microsoft Outlook - I think it is easier to use than the built-in one. It supports POP3, IMAP, so Gmail. Company mailboxes and school mailboxes are not a problem.
