Icons

Mac OS uses icons to graphically represent files and other items on the desktop, in the Dock, or within Finder windows:

  • Applications (Figure 19) are programs you use to get work done. Chapters 5 through 7 discuss working with applications.

    Figure 19. Application icons, including a Mac OS 9.1 application icon (Microsoft Word).

  • Documents (Figure 20) are the files created by applications. Chapter 5 covers working with documents.

    Figure 20. Document icons, including a TextEdit document, a Preview document, and a generic document.

  • Folders (Figure 21) are used to organize files. Chapters 3 and 4 discuss using folders.

    Figure 21. Folder icons.

  • Disks (Figure 22), including removable media, are used to store files. Chapter 3 covers working with disks.

    Figure 22. Three different disk icons: hard disk, CD-ROM disc, and networked disk.

  • The Trash (Figure 23), which is in the Dock, is for discarding items you no longer want and for ejecting removable media. The Trash is covered in Chapter 3.

    Figure 23. The three faces of the Trash icon in the Dock: empty, full, and while dragging removable media.
