thin white bar at the top of your computer is the Menu bar. On the
far left you will always have the Apple Menu no matter which application
you are in. The Apple Menu has many important features for controlling
your Mac. We will get into each of these later. Next you have File,
Edit, View, Go, Window and Help. These are the basic menus of the Finder.
The menus listed at the top will change depending on which application
you have open. For example, if you open Safari, you will see that the
menu bar has changed to Safari. Now the File, Edit, View, History,
Window and Help menus all pertain to the application Safari. By clicking
on each menu, a sub menu will appear with more menu choices for that
application. If you are switching between applications, or to the finder,
it’s important to pay attention to the menu bar as an indicator
of what application you are in.
