I have a software program where on a PC, I can access sub-folders where the owner's manual, sub-folders, etc. reside.

It is cross-platformed and I installed on my Mac. How do I get to that information and manipulate it on a Mac?

(I'm making a lot of assumptions here) I assume the Mac version of the software comes in a .dmg format. Mount the image (double-click on it), and it is likely the manual and everything should be in there.

Otherwise, if the software comes into a .app, or installs a .app to your /Applications folder, then the manual may be inside that .app. That .app is actually a folder. You can explore it by right-clicking on it and selecting "Show package contents". Then explore in there and see if there is the manual.
