Do you have a question? Here are the top ten questions commonly asked by new MacBook users.
My Internet connection doesnt seem to be working. How do I set it up? There are different types of Internet connections. For example, you can connect using a modem, a DSL connection, a wireless AirPort connection, or an Ethernet network. You need to supply Mac OS X with specific information about your connection type, Internet service provider, or network. The first step in configuring your connection is gathering the information needed for your connection type. To find out what information you need and for instructions on how to configure your connection type, see Appendix C, Connecting to the Internet, on page 113. Your computer also has the Setup Assistant application to help walk you through setting up an Internet connection. Open System Preferences and click Network. Click the Assist me button to open Network Setup Assistant.
Top Ten Questions
How do I set up my printer? Is it compatible with my MacBook? Begin by connecting your printer and installing any software according to the instructions that came with your printer. Next, open System Preferences and click the Print & Fax icon. Use the Print & Fax pane to configure your MacBook to access the printer. Youll find lots of information about setting up printers in Mac Help (choose Help > Mac Help from the menu bar and search for printer). Also see Connecting to a Printer on page 48. If your printer isnt working as expected, check the manufacturers website for updated print drivers. Often the latest printer software is available for downloading. If you sent a print job to your printer but its not printing, check to see if the print job is stopped or on hold by clicking the printer icon in the Dock. (If no icon appears in the Dock, open Printer Setup Utility in the /Applications/Utilities/ folder and double-click the printers name.) If the window for the printer says Job Stopped, click the Start Jobs button. If Hold appears beside the job name, resume printing by selecting the job name and clicking Resume. If a print job has stopped printing because of a technical error, you can delete the faulty job by selecting the job and clicking Delete. You can then try printing the job again. How does the Mac OS X interface work? Users new to Mac OS X often have questions about how to carry out certain tasks. Your best source for Mac OS X information is Mac Help. Youll find introductory explanations for new users, users switching from Windows computers, and users upgrading from Mac OS 9. Open Mac Help by choosing Help > Mac Help in the menu bar at the top of your screen. Browse the new Mac OS X user information listed there. Many of the basic tasks users are interested in involve the Finder, so try searching for Finder, too.
