How the heck can you read those tiny icons?
Any way of increasing the size so that I would not have to use a nagnifying glass? I will bet there is.
Toni, here is a before and after image of my desktop (recreated for the before image) i guess I can find my files after all.
Desktop Cleaning Before & After
That strange looking bar on the left of the screen is called the DOCK.
Set up to your choice of what the Mac User wants to have on it.
I can hide it and position it anywhere on the edges of the screen. I can access my Apps from this dock and launch the App. Very neat! Gets rid of desktop clutter also.
On the very bottom is the trash folder. Towards the top you will see my browsers. Safari, Firefox, Seamonkey and VLC. Below that is Dashboard that lets me into hunreds of internet useful sites that are used as tools as well as weather reports from local and Europe.I have mine set for Abington. MA and Brussels, Belgium.
Next is text edit. Drop any Microsoft doc. on it and it will turn the doc. into simple text without any formatting. Good tool.
The others in decending order are Adobe Photoshop V6., Photoshop V7, Quark Express, Adobe Illustrator, Preview (used to view image files),Mail system, address book, i Calender,Quicktime player, Acrobat 4.0, Acrobat Distiller, Microsoft Word X (Many variations here to put the full Office), Cannon Image Browser, System Prefs, Canon Camera Window (for my second Canon Camera),SKYPE ,itunes, my printer, Apple OSX, itunes that I have playing righ now and finally the trash.
This dock can be customized as anyone wants to do.
The Mac has the ability of readingto a degree but will not go to sub folders.
I have a one-button mouse. If I click on a file while I hold down the control key, a screen comes up the same as right clicking the mouse using a PC. Simple.
Toni, Grim or I could have you up and running a Mac in about a day so that you would feel real comfortable using it.
I do have an old PC that I use for games only now.
I had used it for Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat as well as Microsoft Office and other apps. Never want to get rid of that ancient computer running Windows 95.
Toni, I saw a smile on your face. Like I said?use it for games only.
I can run a PC with help.
I run a Mac professionally as a Graphic Designer. Grim does also.
You wouldn't believe who is a Mac fan. Bob Proffitt.
Who would have thought?
Toni, If you really want to see how a Mac works and enjoy it, than just purchase the newly introduced iphone in June.
Leave it to Steve Jobs. Has some neat partners with Google, Singular, AT&T plus Yahoo.
I will purchase one in desperation. I hate Cell phones!!! I do not own one at all. My wife has one. Comes in handy while making weekend calls. FREE!
Or let me put it in perspective: I hate all the idiots that are on a cell phone while attempting to drive their vehicle.
Screeeechh?BOOM/CRUNCH/BANG! Tow Truck!
Welcome back from vacation.
