    Installing Apps
    This might be dumb Q. But here it goes. All the applications I install remain on the desktop like a drive. is there any way I can get rid of these on the desktop. Basically now it is both on the dock (the icon) and the desktop ( looks like a drive). Just bought my first mac 2 weeks ago after a lifetime using PC, so I dont know anything! and I just found this cool forum!

    Also, how can I watch wmv file playing on a webpage? I couldn't figure out the flip4mac correctly. It looks like its not a freeware. Thanks

    Yes, install it.

    To install something properly, you must copy the app to your Applications folder by dragging its icon there. Then you can eject that disk icon by dragging it to the Trash.

    You might want to check out the sticky thread in the Switcher Hangout. There is a ton of good information for new users there.
