how do I drag downloads to hard drive
What download are you talking about?
I downloaded google earth and after downloading it's asking me to drag to hard drive
Open up the Macintosh HD/Applications folder in Finder.
Drag and drop into that folder
You could drag it to some other place, even the desktop, but the typical place would be the Applications folder.
It's telling me this is how to install download from google earth, to drag to hard drive
Thanks, got it
