Hi,
Let me start by saying the whole mac world is new to me, I have had it for about 3 weeks... I got the latest and greatest power book 15" with snow leopard....

I teach audio recording..... for my intro to audio class I teach audacity software and use a presonus inspire interface.. I installed audacity and the inspire driver software.....

they both showed up on the pop up thing on the bottom of the screen.

when I went to teach the class a week later they were gone from my programs at the bottom but I could still access them using the finder.....

what happened???????

Welcome to Mac Forums
The Dock at the bottom that you are referring to is full of links to Apps, etc
When you start a programme, it show's up in the dock until you quit it.
To be add these to the dock, you just drag an App from the finder to the dock, and it will stay there unless you drag it off.

There are no more "power books". That would be a MacBook Pro.

The pop up thing on the bottom of the screen is called the 'Dock'.

Am unfamiliar with either of those two apps, but if they had their own installers, they will be installed in your Applications folder, which is also on your Dock for quick access to all of your applications.

Any apps you install that do not have their own installers (most) you will need to drag it to the Applications folder.

Newly installed applications will be on the Dock only when they are open. They will not stay there at all times unless you tell them to. Right click the icon in the Dock while the app is open, go to Options and select 'Keep in Dock'.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
