  1. MrRules macrumors newbie

    I am a brand new Imac user after being an original PC user. I am setting up my new computer and I can't figure out how to add new websites without adding them to the existing folders - Apple- News. RSS - You Tube, etc. I am sure you can add and edit the folders names but I can't figure it out yet. Any suggestions? They would be appreciated!

    A second question, I loaded Final Cut Express 4 but the program doesn't show up on the desktop. I have found it by using FIND but that takes a while. How do you add programs to the desktop?

    Thanks for helping a newbie, I should catch on pretty quickly, I hope. :)

    Right Click on the bookmark bar, Choose new folder.
    Alternatively, click the little bookmark icon on the left and then click the little plus button at the bottom.

    Applications should go into the Applications folder. If you want easy access to an app, drag it to the dock, right click and choose 'Keep in Dock'.

    You should use Spotlight (top right corner), not find.

    when you find the application in your hard drive, just drag the icon to the dock and it will appear there from now on

    As a point of interest, all apps are installed to your boot hard drive in the "Applications" folder. You can find them there.

    Got It!! - Another problem

    Thanks for the pointers! I am now able to set things up so that I am organized.

    BTW, my documentation indicates that I can remove icons from the Dock by dragging them to the desktop but that doesn't seem to work as they just pop back into the Dock. Any help here?

    I'm a similar user as yourself, long time PC user and just moved to a MacBook. It took me a few hours to really figure out how the OS works. The first things you HAVE to do is FORGET how windows works. Also, look around at the UI and you'll often times see small icons that do what you're looking for.

    they should just "poof" away in a little cloud when you drag them away

    Make sure the apps are closed before you drag them.

    The little Poof

    Yeah, that was the problem. The apps were running and you can't remove them from the Dock when running. My learning curve is definitely going up. Thanks again.
