I have a couple of questions for you savvy mac guys/girls....... 1 - how do I get "Applications" to my dock. I tried dragging it to my dock but it justs poofs away and disappears. 2 - Whenever I watch a streaming video or download a file. It copies itself to my desk top. Then I have to drag the file to my trash. How do I stop downloads from copying themselves to my desktop. BTW, I am using Firefox as a browser 3 - How do I stop certain programs from running on startup. If I go to the Apple icon in the far left corner - then go to 'About This Mac' - then to 'More Info' - then scroll down to 'Start Up Items' - there is a whole list of programs that start running at start up. Which ones do I need to keep running or can I stop them all from running at start up. How do I stop them from running. Thanks!!
