Ten members attended our second meeting at Portchester Community School, including a new member - so welcome to the group.

The main topic was a run through of the Utilities folder (or directory) looking at the programs and discussing where one could use them and their contribution to the good running of OSX.

There was a lively discussion about the uses of some of the applications in the Utilities folder. The mysteries of Activity Monitor were unveiled, revealing how it can be opf help, particularly if your Mac is running slowly, by showing which programs are taking up processor time and memory.
