Get ready to paint

Now, you might be in one of four different situations, depending on whether you've been following along or not. Choose the situation you're in and follow the directions:

  1. You just finished the spreadsheet exercise and the spreadsheet is still on your screen.

    1. Save this spreadsheet: press Command S.

    2. Click in its little close box in the upper-left corner, or use the keyboard shortcut Command W (W for Window).

    3. Go to the next page in this book.

  2. You finished the spreadsheet exercise, saved and closed it, and didn't quit AppleWorks. In the far-right corner of the menu bar, you see "AppleWorks" and a tiny icon of AppleWorks ().

    • You are exactly where you need to be! Go to the next page.


      This is the Application menu. The checkmark indicates what is active, or open, at the moment.


  3. You finished the spreadsheet exercise, saved and closed it, and didn't quit AppleWorks. BUT in the far-right corner of the menu bar, you see a tiny icon of the Macintosh logo ().

    1. Click once on that little happy Mac icon to get the Application menu, as shown to the left.

    2. If you didn't actually quit AppleWorks, you will see "AppleWorks" listed in the Application menu. Select it.

    3. After you select "AppleWorks," you should see the AppleWorks icon on the far-right (where the happy Mac icon was a minute ago) and the toolbar under the menu bar. Go to the next page.


      This is the icon you need to double-click to open the application. This icon is inside the AppleWorks folder.


  4. You skipped the spreadsheet exercise, or you turned off your computer and came back later, and AppleWorks is not open on your iMac.

    1. Open AppleWorks just like you did the first time: double-click the application icon (it's inside the AppleWorks folder).

    2. AppleWorks 5: Double-click "Painting."

      AppleWorks 6: Single-click "Painting."

      Go to the next page, but skip the first step, the one that says, "Open a paint document," because you just opened one.
