    Hi, first time poster on the forums, just got a new MBP.
    So before switching to a Mac I didn't know that you shouldn't move around the default apps that came preinstalled, so I moved them into folders and what not to sort them.
    However upon finding out that they may not update correctly or display in the Mac App Store as installed, I was wondering if anyone could post an image of what the DEFAULT newly installed Mac Applications folder looks like so I can put those files back.
    As well as iWork and iLife packages in addition to the Utilities folder in Applications (I forgot I moved those around too..)
    Thank you in advance!

    Here you go :) excuse the non-compatible icons, the applications folder is from my Lion install.

    the three iWork apps go in a folder called "iWork '09" and iLife apps just go in the Applications folder. also heres the default permissions for the default apps, if it means anything to you :p

    drwxr-xr-x@ 3 root wheel 102 26 Mar 08:49 Address

    app folders (such as iWork and Office) and the Applications & Utilities folders themselves have these permissions.

    drwxrwxr-x@ 27 root admin 918 5 Apr 17:35 .
