Chapter 3. Mac OS 9, Mac OS X,and Classic > Managing Classic Applications

3.5. Managing Classic Applications

Mac OS X's Finder manages your Classic applications just like any other; the only difference is that they are stored in /Applications (Mac OS 9), rather than /Applications. When Classic is running, you won't work with the old Mac OS 9 Finder; however, when a Classic application is running in the foreground, the menu bar changes to that of Mac OS 9. Similarly, the Dock provides space for the icons of Classic applications and even lets you keep them in the Dock.

You can easily identify a Classic application in the Dock, as its icon will have a Mac OS 9-style (32 × 32 pixel) icon, which will look "chunky" if viewed at a higher resolution.
