Chapter 10.  Changing Essential System P... > Displaying System Preferences

Displaying System Preferences

Mac OS X Version 10.2 includes System Preferences, which organizes the settings that control how the system operates. System Preferences replaces the control panels found in Mac operating systems prior to the initial release of OS X. When you start System Preferences, its menu appears and the System Preferences window opens. The window holds an icon for each pane of settings and has a toolbar at the top that you can use to navigate in System Preferences. This section explains how to find the settings pane that you need and how to lock and unlock a pane of preferences.

Displaying a Preferences Pane

To change a particular preference setting, you need to start System Preferences. After you do so, display the particular pane (group of preferences) in which you want to make changes by clicking on the icon for that pane.
