  • If you're just getting started with Mac OS, learning how to navigate the interface is a great place to start.

  • First, we're going to take a look at the desktop, which is the screen you see here.

  • It includes a desktop background, also known as your wallpaper, the menu bar at the top and the doc at the bottom.

  • The dock is where you'll find shortcuts to some of the folders and applications on your computer.

  • For example, Safari Calendar and find her to open any of the items on your dock.

  • Just click the icon.

  • They're actually several different ways to navigate, to files, folders and APS in Mac OS.

  • The Finder feature is one of them.

  • We'll talk more about how to use the finder later, though for now, I'm going to close the window by clicking the red button in the upper left corner.

  • Let's check out launchpad instead.

  • As you can see, Launchpad gives you access to all of your applications at once, making it easier to find and access the programs on your computer To open a program, click.

  • The one you want exiting applications is just Azizi in the upper left corner.

  • Click the name of the APP, then choose quit from the menu.

  • Also on the menu bar is the Apple Icahn.

  • This gives you access to your system preferences, recent files, folders, APS and much more.

  • You also use the apple Icahn.

  • Whenever you want to restart or shut down your computer on the right side of the menu bar, you'll find an icon that looks like a magnifying glass.

  • This opens a feature called Spotlight.

  • It's a quick way to search for anything on your computer, from files and applications to calendar events.

  • You can even do Web searches.

  • Just type what you're looking for and you'll get a list of search results.

  • The last icon in the menu bar opens the notification center here.

  • You can keep track of the alerts you received for different applications, including events on your calendar, reminders and more.

  • The notification center can be customized to show as few or as many alerts as you want.

  • The desktop is one more place that you can store files, folders and even shortcuts for easy access.

  • This time, however, to open an item, you'll need to double click your mouse.

  • Some maps have a full screen mode that you can activate by clicking the green circle.

  • This causes the window to expand so you can focus on the application without any distractions to return to normal view.

  • Press control Command F on your keyboard Not all app support this feature, but it's available in several of the APS that come pre installed on your computer.

  • Finally, let's talk about using your mouse in Mac OS.

  • Specifically a feature called Natural Scrolling.

  • You can learn more about how it works by going to system preferences, then choosing mouse or track pad depending on what you have in this case, will choose mouse.

  • As you can see from the demo, natural scrolling is the reverse of traditional scrolling.

  • It's almost like you're pushing the content up and down on the page.

  • This may seem awkward at first, but it's how many touch screen devices work.

  • Natural scrolling is the default setting, but you could always disable it by checking the box.

  • Here we recommend trying it both ways to see which one you prefer.

  • While you're in this window, you can also take a look at multi touch gestures.

  • For example, here's one that lets you go back and forth between pages using a simple swipe.

  • Mac OS supports many different types of gestures, including pinches taps, double taps, depending on what your mouse or track pad is capable of.

  • Each gesture performs a specific task.

  • Toe Learn Mawr.

  • You may want to visit this resource again once you become more familiar with Mac OS.

  • Now that you know your way around the desktop, we invite you to explore its features.
