Yes I have bought my first mac and have spent hours trying to find out why the icons are static on this machine while in the shop and in help vids the icons pop up above the rest.
The changeover is harder than expected.
Where do I find this sort of basic help?

Click on the Apple symbol in the top left hand corner of the menu bar, select 'Dock', turn magnification on.

For help,just choose help from the menu bar whilst in Finder.

Also, if you go to the Apple menu in the menu bar, you can open System Preferences and make all kinds of other adjustments to customize your Mac.
