Loading Programs from Disk

The Macintosh SE mounts a floppy disk automatically when it is inserted into the drive. With the computer on and fully booted, place a floppy disk in the drive and wait for the disk to be mounted and for the disk icon to appear on the screen. It should appear near the top right of the desktop, below the icon labeled Hard Drive. Double click the disk to open it, and double click the file or program icon inside the finder window to open that particular program. To eject the disk, drag the disk icon to the trash.

Running Programs from the Hard Drive

On the desktop, double click the Hard Drive icon, located at the upper right of the screen. Navigate by double clicking on icons representing files and folders on the disk. Double click a file or program to open it.
