Chapter 5. Using Mac OS X Applications > Launching Applications

Launching Applications

All of the Macintosh OS X Panther applications are automatically loaded during the installation of the operating system, and appear on the hard drive within the Applications folder. When you open the hard drive, you'll have the choice of viewing the file as icons, as file names (with information), or as file names in columns. Regardless of what view you choose to launch a Mac application, simply locate the desired application in the open window, and then double-click the application to load.

Launch an Application

Double-click the hard drive icon on your desktop.

To change views, click a view button, such as View By Columns.

Click the Applications folder.

Scroll up and down to view the available applications by name.

Double-click on the application name, or application icon, to launch.
