    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.

    *Doh* thanks, that's what I was looking for. Now I have the icon in Launchpad, too

    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.

    Very informative. New mac user for about a month. Had to intuit a lot of things on my own but this filled in a lot of gaps I had left. Thank you!

    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.

    Thanks @ bobtomay for the guide!

    Anyway, I read the guide but I'm still not sure how to uninstall the Tor browser (installed using a dmg file iirc). I cannot remember how I installed it though and the instructions on Tor's website does not seem to work.
    sudo port uninstall tor
    Do I just delete it from the Applications list?

    If you forget or are not easily finding uninstall instructions for a specific app, the easy way can sometimes be:

    a) look up the installation guide instead of trying to find out how to uninstall it

    (In the case of the Tor Browser, it's install directions state "Drag the included file into your Applications folder". This indicates you will simply drag the app to the trash to get rid of it.)

    b) For those without an installation guide, just download the app again and start the install process. When you get to the install, it will either be a drag and drop or it will have an installer - you don't need to actually install it - but, you will now know the method of uninstalling you need to use.

    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.
