Exactly How Did I Get Here?

You turn on your Macintosh. The smiling Macintosh icon appears briefly and is soon replaced by the Welcome to Macintosh display. Eventually, this too disappears and is replaced by the desktop, a display where your disk icon appears in the upper right corner of the screen and the various files on your disk are listed in any number of windows. In one of these windows, you find the file icon for your word processor. You double-click on the file and it opens. You create a new document and save it. You quit the application and shut off the machine.

That's a typical brief session with your Macintosh.
