🚀 TipOff #21: How to Control-Alt-Delete on a Mac

Often abbreviated Ctrl+Alt+Del, this command (sometimes referred to as the “three-finger salute”) has been a mainstay for PC users—primarily to restart the computer if it locks up. But if you have switched from PC to Mac, this isn’t the key combination you need to know.
