Lesson 0. Four Things You Might Need to Know First

Lesson 0. Four Things You Might Need to Know First

Time This lesson takes approximately 3 minutes to complete.
Goals To learn how to navigate around on the screen, double-click to launch an application, and quit an application using the mouse.


Now, I'm guessing that if you bought this book, you've already mastered the basics of using a mouse, and you know how to launch (and quit) the software applications on your Mac. But that's just a guess, and that's also why I used the word “might” in the lesson title. You might not know that stuff, and if that's the case, there are four key things that you're going to need to know before we can start the lessons in this book. They are: (1) How to move around the screen using a mouse; (2) how to double-click the mouse button; (3) how to launch an application; and (4) how to quit out of an application. Now, how hard is it to learn these four things? They're a breeze, and that's why I've only dedicated four pages in the book to learning them. Yes, these four things are critical things, but they're also very, very easy, so let's get right to it—turn the page and we'll go over all four. Note: If you already know how to use the mouse (double-click, etc.), you can skip the next few pages and catch up with me at Lesson 1.
