    I just got a Mac, and was wondering if there is anyway to access program files for applications, like on Windows?

    "Access" is a pretty vague term, what exactly did you have in mind? An example might help.

    If you right click on any application in your application folder and click "show package contents" you can "access" the "program files" for it.

    Hmm, Like in Windows, there was a "Program Files" folder, and it showed a list of your applications. And inside them were all the main program files.

    For that, just open the Applications folder on the hard disk.

    Press command-1, command-2, or command-3 to see your applications as icons, as an alphabetical list, or as within the folder hierarchy.
