It is fast, easy, convenient,​ and⁣ secure. To⁣ begin you must‍ make⁢ sure your Macbook‍ has a compatible‍ version of the operating system software.

After opening the Finder window, look ⁤to the⁢ left-hand side ⁣of the window and click on the AirDrop button. This‌ will launch the AirDrop‍ window. If prompted, the next step is to⁤ allow AirDrop access by selecting either “Allow me to be discovered ​by: Contacts Only” or “Allow me to be discovered by: Everyone”. Choosing one of these will turn on ⁣AirDrop.

If ⁢you previously ​selected⁢ “Contacts⁣ Only”, you will be able⁤ to transfer‌ files with others ⁢who‍ are in your Macbook’s‌ contacts list. ⁤If you selected “Everyone”, then ⁤you can transfer files with anyone in the vicinity with an⁣ AirDrop compatible ⁤device.

Now that your Macbook​ is ‌set ⁤up ⁣with ⁤AirDrop, ⁢you can start sharing and transferring files ​with ease. To start ​sending files,⁢ go back to the Finder window⁢ and click and drag‍ the‌ file you wish to transfer to the AirDrop recipient’s avatar or computer‍ name.
