    Hi, Im a new IMAC owner.I'm running Snow Leapord OS. I see when I am typing that if the computer detects a spelling mistake, it underlines the word in red. Is there a way I can change it to the correct spelling or are they just warning me that it is wrong and I have to figure out the correct spelling on my own? Thanks in advance.

    Right click on the underlined word.

    Got it. I never knew you could program the mighty mouse to right click. Thanks for the help.

    Also, when hovering your mouse over a work hit Apple-Control-D and it will tell you the definition. Works in Safari too :cool:

    Pretty slick. I can't wait to get home and try these new things.
