I just bought an imac. And I want to change the settings I don't know how:

1.All the applications are on the bottom of the screen on a sidebar like thing.I want it windows style with the icons on the desktop.

2. The Menu for all the applications(File,Edit,etc..) is not part of the same window as the application. Instead it at the top right of the screen.

3. How do I save a file to a folder? I right clicked on an mp3 file, selected "save link as" then I only got an option to save to the mac hard drive,I couldn't browse through folders.

4. Is there like a wordpad thing so I can write?

Please help

1. I'm pretty sure you can just drag some of the icons ( not all ) to the desktop. If you accidentally delete one just find it in Applications and drag it to the dock. But I don't think you can get rid of the dock. You can make it REALLY small by going into system settings.

2. Yup that's how it always is.

3. You can just drag the file into the fold you want.

4. Textedit... it's in the Applications folder.

scarlet - Why buy an iMac if you have no idea on how to use it?


I think he just doesn't want to get used to it and wants it to be as PC as possible.

Well people have this capacity for learning that we like to use and try new things.

Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing? Did you know anything about OSX before hand? Why on earth...

But he doesn't want to try new things. He wants to make it like Windows, which doesn't make sense, other than that he prefers Windows, which makes this whole purchase confusing.

He wants application Icons on the desktop and applications to have their own file bar, it's not like he's demanding a start bar and Vista aqua blue theme.

If you changed all those things to how you want them, you would have Windows.

It would defeat the purpose of the interface of the Mac.

Get Parallels Desktop or Boot Camp and you can run Windows through your Mac if you really want.
