Lesson 0. Four Things You Might Need to ... > Moving Around Your Mac Using a Mouse

Moving Around Your Mac Using a Mouse

If you have a desktop Mac (like an iMac, a Power Mac G5, a Mac mini, or an eMac), you'll be using a mouse to move around the screen, to select different objects and menus, and to click on things you want to work with. Using a mouse is fairly simple—as you slide the mouse around on your desk, you'll see an arrow move around onscreen. If you see something you want to work with, just slide your mouse until the onscreen cursor (the arrow) is directly on top of that object, then press down lightly on your mouse and release. You'll hear a little “click” sound. That's “clicking,” so in this book when I say something like “click on the icon” that means to move your mouse so the onscreen cursor is directly over the object, then lightly press and release your mouse so you hear the click sound. That's it.

Clicking just once will only select the folder.
