Part 3. Installing and Using Applications

Part 3. Installing and Using Applications

The programs make using your Mac worthwhile, whether it's the applications that come with Mac OS X (such as Preview, TextEdit, and Safari) or the ones you buy and install yourself (such as Microsoft Word, Adobe Photoshop, or your favorite games). Most of the software you'll use every day runs natively in Mac OS X, but you can still use older programs that require Mac OS 9 by running them in Classic.

Classic is like a computer within your computer; with this system feature, you can start up a Mac OS 9 “bubble” in which Mac OS 9 programs can run. When you're using a Classic program, you'll see the gray Mac OS 9 menu bar and the rainbow-colored Apple menu icon instead of the white Mac OS X menu bar and blue Apple menu icon.
