I decided to write this guide as a reference primarily for those new to AmigaOS
4.1, but I hope it will also prove a useful resource for more experienced users
of the next generation AmigaOS. I have aimed to create an A-Z of the various
hints and tips I have picked up during my OS 4.1 experience since investing in a
Sam440flex system in early 2010 and getting reacquainted with AmigaOS. Many of
these hints and tips have come from what I have learnt from the vibrant 
user community found on the various Amiga internet forums. 

The guide has been put together in the spirit of the 'Getting the most out of
your Amiga' cover books released by the UK magazine, Amiga Format, in the early
1990s. I felt an A-Z format would be user-friendly and fun to use as I enjoyed
using the original Amiga Format books in the early 1990s. 

Tinkering with Workbench has been a hobby of mine for some time, back in the
late 1990s it was always fun to see what new patches I could add to OS 3.x on my
A1200 tower system to gain additional functionality or speed. I whiled away many
hours tinkering with the look and feel of the Workbench and have found still
plays a big part in my use of OS 4.1 today. Here I document the hints and tricks
I have picked up along the way here to help others get the most out of their
