Macintosh SE System
Running the System
- Ensure that the Macintosh is plugged into the wall.
- Flip the power switch on the back left of the device, next to the socket for the power cable
Loading Programs from Disk
The Macintosh SE mounts a floppy disk automatically when it is
inserted into the drive. With the computer on and fully booted, place
a floppy disk in the drive and wait for the disk to be mounted and for
the disk icon to appear on the screen. It should appear near the top
right of the desktop, below the icon labeled Hard Drive. Double click
the disk to open it, and double click the file or program icon inside
the finder window to open that particular program. To eject the disk,
drag the disk icon to the trash.
Running Programs from the Hard Drive
On the desktop, double click the Hard Drive icon, located at the upper right of the screen. Navigate by double clicking on icons representing files and folders on the disk. Double click a file or program to open it.
