Chapter 6. Installing and Using Mac OS X... > Launching Mac OS X Applications

Launching Mac OS X Applications

As with previous versions of the Mac OS, there is more than one way to launch an application. You can do any of the following:

  • Select the application in a Finder window and choose the Finder's Open command (+O).

  • Double-click the application's icon.

  • Single-click an application's icon on the Dock.

  • Open an alias to the application, such as one stored in your Favorites directory.

  • Open a document of the file type that the application is set to open.

  • Drag and drop a document onto an application's icon (or an alias' icon).

  • Select an application's icon or alias and press +Down arrow.

  • Launch the application from within another application. (For example, you can launch a Web browser by clicking a URL in an e-mail program.)

  • Add the application to the Login Items window so that it is launched automatically when you log in.

  • Launch the application from a script created by AppleScript or other scripting utility.
