For Optimum ease of use it is recommended that you set the Macintosh Computer settings as listed below.

Click on the Desktop background so that the Menu Bar displays the word "Finder" just to the right of the Apple icon on the left of the menu bar.

Click the work finder then select Preferences from the drop down menu.

In the window that opens make the settings changes as illustrated in the image below of the "General" tab. With the exception that in the "New Finder windows show:" The computer ID number of the computer you are on should be shown.(That is the same number on the ETSU barcode inventory sticker on the front of the computer)

 

In the Sidebar Tab make the settings changes as illustrated in the image below. With the exception that to the right of the little house icon it will show either your userID or Student depending on how you are logged into the computer. Also the ETSU number listed below will be different on your computer.

 

In the Advanced Tab make the settings changes as illustrated in the image below.

You may choose to check or uncheck any of these settings. They are only offered here as a good starting setup for most users.
