Put the folder with the game in "Applications". The first time you run the game it will appear in the "Dock" (Large menu bar at bottom of the screen). When it appears there, right click on it and select "Keep in Dock". Now you'll have a large icon you can click on whenever you wish to start up the game.

And welcome to our forums.

Hi there,

I finally decided to go with the iMac. Now - how do I get my apps from my MBP onto my iMac?

I don't want to remove them, I just want to copy them.

I personally use CleanMyMac which does have a drag an drop feature but gets rid of all those associated files from installed apps as well as the original installer.

Appcleaner is a good program to use to uninstall programs. I use that one currently.
