So some things I figured out already like open this file/folder/app etc.

What more can I ask Siri on my MacBook Pro?

  • How much memory does my Mac have?
  • How much free disk storage is available?
  • What is my Mac serial number?
  • What OS version is this?
  • How much iCloud storage do I have?
  • Open Mail application

  • Open Messages
  • Open the website for OSXDaily.com
  • Open the webpage (site name or site URL)
  • Send a message to (name) saying (message)
  • Open the Documents folder
  • Open the Pictures folder
  • Show me files named “screen shot”
  • Show me files from yesterday
  • Show me image files from last week
