The first four sessions of this tutorial gave you a good feel for using the Apple IIGS. Now you'll have a chance to change some of your computer's features to suit your preferencemuch the way you adjust the mirrors and seat in a car.
You'll do so with the Control Panel, a special program on the Apple IIGS System Disk. The Control Panel is a desk accessory programa "mini-application" that you can use even when you're already running another application.
In this session you'll use the Control Panel to
¥ set the computer's calendar and clock
¥ adjust the volume and pitch of the computer's beep
¥ change the color of the border around the Finder desktop
The options you'll change in this session are just a few of the settings you can change using the Control Panel. For complete descriptions of all the options, see Chapter 9 of the Apple IIGS Owner's Reference.
You'll also learn how to shut down the computer at the end of this session
