Starting Mac OS X

Mac OS X automatically starts when you turn on your computer. When you first start Mac OS X, you see the desktop screen, or a Login window depending on your installation. The Mac OS X desktop screen indicates you are using a stand-alone computer (you're the only person using the computer), while the Login window identifies you're on a shared computer. After you click or type your user name in the Login window, and then possibly type a password, you'll see the Mac OS X desktop.
