Console

The Console application enables you to read messages from Mac OS X system software and applications. You might find this useful if you are a programmer or are troubleshooting a problem. (If not, you’ll probably think it looks like a bunch of gibberish.)

To view system messages

1.
Open the Console icon in the Utilities folder (Figure 1).

2.
The console.log window appears (Figure 31). Scroll through its contents to read messages.

Figure 31. The console.log window records messages sent by Mac OS and its applications. (What may look like a bunch of gibberish to you and me can help a programmer or troubleshooter debug a Mac.)
