I'm a new Mac user with a Mac Mini (10.8.4). I downloaded MagiCal (both the Intel version and the Universal version), but I can't find them. (It's a clock/calendar app). I restarted my computer. I went to Downloads and tried to Move to Trash, but I can't because they are supposedly open. Can you help me find them? Thanks

First, the Universal version will not work with Mountain Lion because it contains PPC code. The Intel version, however, should work as the author states. MagiCal should have downloaded to whatever you have your browser setup for a download folder. Check your browser's options to see what you have setup for a download folder. By default, Safari will download to your "Downloads" folder. Chrome and Opera likewise. I don't use Firefox but I suspect its default is the same.

If you still can't find where it's at, use your Spotlight Search feature. (Magnifying glass in the upper right corner of your top menu.)

Go into Finder in the Dock (the back to front face), select Downloads and see if it is there.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Jeff indicates in his post that he's already found the downloads -- in his downloads folder, precisely where they are supposed to be. I suspect that what he might have done is opened the programs from the disk image and they are still open -- which would explain why he can't trash the disk images.

This may help: Installing Applications in Mac OS X - Mac Guides
