The top five things you should do first when you get a new Mac. Here is the list, including any links that I may have mentioned:

1 - Check your Settings for natural scrolling
Try and stick with natural scrolling, but if you can’t adjust, here’s how to switch it back to the “old” way.

2 - Set up hot corners in your system preferences
Everyone should be using this time saver! Here’s how to set it up.

3 - Download and install 1Password or a comparable password manager app
Download at https://1password.com

4 - Choose a VPN service if you were mobile
I use VPN Unlimited and have for a couple of years now. https://www.vpnunlimitedapp.com/en
There are plenty of good options out there for VPN.

5 - Choose a backup method and use it.
Start with Time Machine and an external hard drive (This one is a reliable option: https://amzn.to/2NdNmvY)

Then use an online backup service... I use Backblaze and love it
