Part I: Lay of the Land > System Preferences

Chapter 4. System Preferences

After finding your way around the Mac's interface, the next thing you'll want to do is configure your system to suit your needs. The primary way to do this is with Mac OS X's System Preferences application. Using the System Preferences and the panels within, you can configure and customize your system and how you interact with it. You can perform actions such as set your Desktop image, configure your network settings (including those for your .Mac account), and manage user accounts if your system has more than one user.

This chapter covers the use of the System Preferences application and describes all the individual panes that Mac OS X ships with. It also explains how the application works, including ways to add panes of your own to its display.
