Chapter 1. Folders and Windows > Getting Help in Mac OS X

1.8. Getting Help in Mac OS X

It's a good thing you've got a book about Mac OS X in your hands, because you certainly won't get much help from Apple. The only user manual you get with Mac OS X is the Help→Mac Help command, which you can also summon by pressing -?. You get a Web browser-like program that reads a set of help files that reside in your System→Libraries folder (see Figure 1-24).

Figure 1-24. The Mac OS X Help system no longer bunches together the help pages from every program on your Mac, as it did in previous versions. When you're in the Finder, you get the general Macintosh help screens. When you're in iPhoto, you get only iPhoto help screens. And so on. (To which most Mac fans would add: "Amen!")
