Part Five: Appendix > System Control Panel

A.86. System Control Panel

The Mac has no central equivalent of the System window on a Windows PC. But its functions have analogs here:

  • General tab. To find out your Mac OS X version number and the amount of memory on your Mac, choose → About This Mac.

  • Computer Name tab. Open System Preferences, click Sharing, and edit your computer's network names here.

  • Hardware tab. The closest thing the Mac has to the Device Manager is System Profiler (in your Applications → Utilities folder). See Section 14.24.21.

  • Advanced tab. In Mac OS X, you can't easily adjust your virtual memory, processor scheduling, or user profile information.

  • System Restore tab. This feature isn't available in Mac OS X.

  • Automatic Updates tab. Open System Preferences and click Software Updates.

  • Remote tab. These features are unavailable in Mac OS X.
