are software programs that perform certain tasks. Your computer comes
with many applications
already installed and you can also add more. Let’s take a look
at the applications folder. As your
computer skills grow, you will discover a world of applications for just
about anything you’d want to do. To open an application just double-click
on its’ icon. Let's open Stickies, which is a digital version
of a Post-it note. Now that the application is open you can see that
is says Stickies in the menu bar and now all of the menu items refer
to the Stickies application. The Stickies icon is now in the dock. This
lets me know that the application is open. To quit out of an application
you can go to application menu and select quit, or you can go to the
dock and click and hold on the icon, when the menu pops up, select quit.
Or you can simply use the keyboard shortcut, apple Q.
