Discovering the Help Menus

Are you new to the Macintosh world or to computers in general? Well, take it from me, the mouse takes a little while to get used to, but after a couple of exercises you'll be working it like a pro.

Apple has a Help menu where you can receive tips and information. To get there, just point the mouse to the Help label and hold the mouse switch. Choose Mac OS from the menu to open a list of help topics.

To get from one to the other, just click the underlined link, known as a hyperlink . That click will open an information screen explaining what the function is all about. When you get the basics, choose the section in this book that covers the topic for a complete tutorial.


If you're having a bit of trouble getting to the Help menu, here's a fast tip. Just point the mouse cursor to the item on the menu bar labeled Help and click the mouse button once. The Help menu will sit there until you pick a command (or about 15 seconds if you don't make a selection).
