MacOS has a very simple process for installing applications and updates
Installing software updates on computers running Windows is a simple process, but it can deliver a lot of unpleasant minutes to users. In the case of the Mac, such problems do not arise. In fact, it’s hard to find a simple and straightforward operating system like macOS. For example, the process of updating from one version of the OS to a more recent one involves just one click. Just click on the “Refresh“In the corresponding notification and the system will do everything itself, and the whole process will take about 30 minutes.
Installing applications also does not require much effort. Instead of launching various installers (as in Windows), the user only needs to move the .APP files to the “Programs“, Which takes no more than three seconds. Uninstalling the application is the same as uninstalling in iOS (you need to hold the application icon and then click on the cross).

Finder + Quick Look + Spotlight
Finder, Quick Look, and Spotlight are the three main features that make macOS easy and productive. The Finder application is an analogue of the file manager in Windows. “Quick Look” is the default application for previewing various types of files, and Spotlight is Apple’s integrated search tool, which operates throughout the macOS system.
Finder – a file manager that has many useful functions (for example, the ability to open several tabs), the existence of which many users do not even suspect.
Quick Look – One of the best Finder elements that allows you to view various documents. For example, if you have a full folder with images or PDF documents, just select one file and press Space in order to view the file without having to run the application.

Notification Center on macOS
The “Notification Center” (in detail) displays information about the current day – scheduled appointments, weather forecasts, birthdays and even a summary of plans for tomorrow, and also allows you to view missed notifications. Importantly, the “Notification Center” supports widgets that the user can add, delete and organize at their own discretion.
The design of the “Notification Center” is rather minimalistic. The application displays only the necessary information. There is no heap of unnecessary elements and you do not need to constantly delete unnecessary notifications and messages, which can not be said about the notification center in Windows 10.
