I recently bought a 27inch iMac and this is my first experience of using Mac OS. I am used to Ubuntu (more) and Windows. I would be glad if someone can help me out with the following things I am stuck with on Mac.
The font size is turning out to be a huge problem. The general font size across all windows is too small for me and on safari as I type this I have to really strain my eyes to see what I am typing even while 2ft away from the screen. How can I globally increase the font size?
Especially I would like to increase the font sizes on the tool bars and the left side columns on all system windows, on safari and also the top bar on the desktop. The default size is painfully small for a 27inch screen.
I am completely unable to install any new software on it like Goole Chrome or TinkerTool or VLC. Whenever I download from the software websites, a file seems to get saved in some folder called "downloads". And these often create an icon on the desktop which does not seem to be just an icon link. What is the generic method of installing any software on Mac?
Somehow there has gotten created inside the Applications folder 3 items for Google Chrome and one of them is called "alias". I have no clue what these are and none of them seem to be opening the Google Chrome browser.
I can't figure out into which folder is iTunes saving the music files when I ask it to import a music cd. Few of the times i could track down where it saved the files and then I found it very hard to cut them out of there and relocate the music files into some other folder of my choice. To prevent double copies from existing when I try to delete the original copy Mac made I find that my copy is also getting deleted. What is the slick way to import a music cd into a folder of my choice?
How do I change the name which shows against "---'s iMac". It basically shows my full name and I would want only my first name. It seems that this name is independent of the name of the account.
I see that an icon called "Macintosh HD" inside the folder called "---'s iMac" apart from a folder by the same name that occurs on the left bar. I guess this is a second copy that I have accidentally created. I hope i can safely delete the folder called "Macintosh HD" inside "---'s iMac"
