Part I : Basic Mac OS X > Setting Preferences

Chapter 3. Setting Preferences

After you have played with all of a new operating system’s bells and whistles, you feel a sense of calm in the air as you pause to take stock of what is on the screen before you. This is a good time to start digging further into the OS X interface and getting it customized to meet your standards. A lot of settings can be changed to suit your preferences and needs. Many of these settings are purely subjective—OS X will hardly suffer a performance hit if you change mouse speed settings. But some settings are much more critical, such as how OS X connects your computer to the network and to the Internet, which will be discussed more in Chapter 4,“Connecting with OS X.” For now, you’ll learn how to manage many of these settings, from the minor to the major, so you can make OS X your very own.
