    I am totally new to macs and osx so I'm still trying to figure out how the folders are organized and the difference between things on docs, applications, and my finder.

    I downloaded chrome and an google disk icon appeared on my desktop. What should I do with it? Leave it there? Move it into the download folder or move it elsewhere?

    Also, in my download folder another file called googlechrome.dmg appeared. What should I do with that file? What should I do with files in the download folder in general?

    Drag the application into the Applications folder ad eject the mounted DMG file and delete the .dmg file in the Downloads folder if you want.
