Open an application

An application is a program in which you do things, like write letters, design flyers or artwork, organize and edit your photos, make movies, send email, etc. Different applications have different purposes. In this chapter you're going to open and work in a word processor, which is a program specifically meant for typing. Other applications are for creating databases or spreadsheets, or for painting, drawing, or building web pages, etc. In Chapter 10 you'll use an application called a browser that is specifically for viewing web pages.

The word processor you'll use in this chapter is called TextEdit and it came with your Mac. If you did the exercises in Chapter 2, TextEdit is now in your Dock; if not, you'll put it there in Exercise 1b, below.
