AskIT: Mac vs Windows Platforms

Are you a Mac user living in a Windows world? CanvasIT’s Laura Ingle explains how various Mac platforms translate on Windows devices.

When you open a document on a Mac computer, you have several different options. Apple has its own software.

You can use:

  • Pages (like Word for Windows)
  • Numbers (like Excel)
  • Keynote (like PowerPoint)

You can open, edit and send documents in a way they can also be utilized in a Windows platform. When you save documents on a Mac device, just be sure to save the document as a Word, Excel, PowerPoint or PDF document.
