Mac Tip: Show Paper Tape in Calculator

When you're balancing a checkbook, working on a budget or just calculating lots of numbers, it's difficult remembering what you've entered, or if you had entered a number incorrectly. The Calculator application in Mac OS X has virtual paper tape that'll let you see what you've input.

Launch Calculator and then select "Show Paper Tape" from the Window menu.

Now, as you enter numbers and perform calculations, you'll be able to see and check the numbers to confirm you've input them correctly.

Good Tip! Actually, several weeks ago jumped on Numi, so now I don't just view paper with calculations, but actually calculate on it!
