Installing Programs

After you read each screen of the installer, click the Continue button at the bottom of the window to move to the next screen.

Read the program information and the license agreement; then click Agree to agree to the license terms (or Disagree if you don't want to install the program after all).

If you have more than one hard drive, choose the drive where you want to install the software.

INTRODUCTION

Some Mac programs are small enough that you can drag them off their disks right into the Applications folder, but others require an installer program to make sure all their pieces get to the right places. When you run Apple's Installer, you have to enter an admin password to authorize the installation.

Applications in the Applications Folder

You can install programs anywhere you want, but it's best to put them in the Applications folder on your startup drive. That way all users of your Mac can run the programs.


Click Install to begin the installation process.

Enter an admin username and password to authorize the installation and click OK.

When the installation is complete, click Close to quit Installer.

The application's icon now appears in the Applications folder (or whatever folder you chose).
