One of the little-known time-saving features of Mac OS X are services – hidden, single-function commands that can be accessed from a special Services menu or, sometimes, from a context menu. These features are usually provided by applications (built-in OS X applications or third-party programs) and allow you to quickly perform actions that usually require starting additional programs and performing many steps. Below are answers to frequently asked questions about how to find, use and manage services.
Q: What are the services?
A: Simply put, OS X services allow you to borrow features from other programs. So, as I write this article in Bare Bones Software’s BBEdit, I can select some text, select the Services menu (located in ApplicationName -> Services, in this case, BBEdit -> Services), then choose New Email with selection. A new message window opens in Apple Mail, filled with my selection of text, which I can easily address and send to my editor.
