Help I got a New Mac computer! Nothing gets along with it. Need help

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Weichert/THe Presdential Company 747001988

We broke down and replace our old Dell.  It was ready for pasture.  Well my husband thought the Mac was the thing.  I like it, however nothing plays well with it.  MLS  Paragon will not work on it.  I can't put pictures on my blogs, little squares apear instead.  I am about to lose it.  My kids due virtual school and when they save a file, have the time it doesn't save or you can't open it.  Help need answers, any Mac pro please save me!!! Would it help to buy windows for it?

Kathy I guess what I was saying was that the main problem with switching to a Mac is that a huge chunk of software is PC only. Its shifting but Microsoft always fought hard to prevent that shift. You might check into Google apps but I really dont know what else to suggest. You might google something like a bloggers guide to using a Mac. I am sure someone covered the tools you need to have.

Really the problem is that most website creators don't follow all the web protocols correctly.  PCs are a little more "forgiving" of incorrecty built websites, but Macs are not.... Firefox is the most forgiving, Safari is okay, but runs into too many problems.

there's no reason to use anything other than Firefox, Kathy, even for simple things.

Welcome to the Mac world where they want everything to run perfectly.  They control most of the hardware and software stuff so it almost always works well with one another.  Just don't go outside the Mac world.

Just bought my first Mac yesterday and haven't experienced any problems yet. Top Producer isn't compatible but I knew that going in. So far I love it and will eventually get rid of everything PC.

 

Once you go MAC, you never go back.
