Overview

Mac OS 8 is one of the most significant and longest-anticipated operating system updates in Macintosh history. If you've already upgraded to Mac OS 8 -- as millions already have -- or you're wondering whether you should, Mac OS 8 For Dummies is for you. Mac OS 8 For Dummies is also for everyone whose first Macintosh experience is with Mac OS 8, because Mac expert Bob LeVitus supplies a complete primer on everything from pointing and clicking with a mouse to scrolling and sizing windows (that's "windows" with a small w, of course).

But LeVitus doesn't spend too much time on the basics, because Mac OS 8 has so many new features and new spins on old features. Mac OS 8 For Dummies shows you how to

  • Manage your documents and folders so that you can always find what you're looking for quickly
  • Share files with others if your Mac is connected to a network
  • Get the most out of your RAM (memory) and hard disk storage
  • Customize your Mac for performance with the revamped Extensions Manager and for looks with new color schemes and background patterns and menus
  • Take your Mac out onto the Information Superhighway by using Apple's new user-friendly Internet access tools
