This may sound pretty dumb to some people, so please forgive my vast ignorance. I'm a 15 year PC user now on my first Mac, and I'm having a few difficulties understanding the relationships of a few things. Specifically, the way that programs are installed via downloads from the web. I'll give you a scenario: I started thinking that I'd like to get my DVD collection into digital format. So I went ahead and downloaded Mac The Ripper and Handbrake. .DMG files downloaded to the downloads folder, but it added what looks like a drive to my desktop. I then proceeded to use the "installer" on both of these programs. After the install, they just sat on my desktop as the thing that looked like a drive. Looks like Handbrake added itself to my dock, but Mac the Ripper did not. Plus, I "ejected" the Mac the Ripper from my desktop and it no longer appears to be on the computer as an installed program. So I'm just sort of trying to wrap my head around it coming from PC - ideally, I'd like to add a program, have it drop into the "Applications" folder, and then I no longer want it on the desktop, but it seems to be a process I'm not immediately seeing. Sorry if this sounds like something I could have found on my own - I did search around and I'm only finding other "tips" but not anything on my specific question. Thanks in advance!
