    I put the calculator on the dock. It wasn't opening when I tried clicking on it so I removed it from the dock. It went up in a puff of smoke and now I can not find it other than on the dashboard. How do I get it back? Can you tell I have only been using a Mac for about 5 hours now?

    It should be located in your applications folder.
    You can just drag it from the applications folder back to your dock.

    That is what I thought, but it is not there either.

    Use your spotlight to do a search. Its in the upper right hand corner.
    Check your trash?

    You may have deleted it. You say your new to mac. Only a few hours of use. I remember when I was new. I screwed up my mac pretty good. Trying to be smart and deleting files I thought were unnecessary.

    You might want to play around with it for a few days. Get your self comfortable with it. Then do a fresh install.

    If I deleted it, wouldn't it not be on the dashboard either? Or is that different?

    Is there a way of getting it back if I did delete it short of doing a fresh install?

    Yes, I'm sure you can just select "calculator" in optional installs.

    The dashboard calculator is totally different.
