Lesson 0. Four Things You Might Need to ... > How to Launch an Application

How to Launch an Application

In this book, we'll launch all our software applications (except one) by using the Dock that appears along the bottom of your screen (it's shown above). Each application is represented by a small image called an “icon.” (Note: If you're not sure which icon represents the application you want to launch, let your arrow cursor hover over the icon and the name of the application will appear near your cursor.) To launch an application from the Dock, you just move your mouse so that the arrow cursor appears right over the application you want to launch, then click (press the mouse down and release) only once. In a few moments, the application will appear onscreen. To know which applications are open, look for a black triangle below each icon. If the icon has a black triangle beneath it, that application has been launched and is open for you to use.
