Setting Classic Preferences

Setting Classic Preferences

The Classic pane in System Preferences gives you options to start and stop the Classic environment within Mac OS X, setup Mac OS 9 system startup and sleep options, and view status and memory information about Mac OS 9. If you're having problems with Mac OS 9 or an application running in Classic mode, you can use the Classic pane to also restart the Classic environment, or force an immediate quit. If icons are not properly displayed in Mac OS 9, you can rebuild the desktop to fix it.

Set Classic Start/Stop Options

Click the System Preferences icon in the Dock, and then click the Classic icon.

Click the Start/Stop tab.

Select the System Folder for the Mac OS 9 system.

Select the start options you want:

  • Start Classic When You Login. Check to automatically start Mac OS 9 when you login to Mac OS X.

    To start and hide it, select the Hide Classic While Starting check box.

  • Warn Before Starting Classic. Check to display an alert before Mac OS 9 automatically starts.

  • Show Classic Status In Menu Bar. Check to start/stop Mac OS 9 and change options from the menu bar.

If you want, use buttons to manually start, restart, and quit:

  • Start. Click to start Mac OS 9. While the system is starting, you can click Stop to halt it.

  • Restart. Click to save changes and restart Mac OS 9.
