    I'm trying to remember the name of an old Macintosh game that I used to play. Here's what I think I remember:

    - Classic Mac game (black & white)
    - Possibly came preinstalled, made by Apple?
    - It was kind of like a tutorial that taught you how to use your mouse.
    - I remember using the mouse to open a window blind, swat a fly, and drive a car.

    Anyone?

    Sorry if my memories are vague or incorrect; I was a little kid back then.

    This is the one that immediately came to mind. It was the guided tour disk that came with the original Macintosh, although its not really what you are describing.

    Looks like somebody else had my same question back in 2003, but didn't get an answer:

    I was able to track this down and registered here just so I could answer this. This question has been bothering me for years, literally.

    It was Your Tour of the AppleIIGS

    I havent found the original (1986) but the newer version (1988) can still be played here:

    There was "Mouse Basics" (with the scuba diver) and later "Mouse Practice" (set in an office). They're both available on the Macintosh Repository web site... http://www.macintoshrepository.org/600-mouse-practice

    I wish Apple still shipped something like this for new users. They really were a joy to use.
