Re: New Mac's, do you reinstall when you 1st get them?

I think Apps NEED to be in the Apps folder.

Apple has defined certain apps as "needed by OS X" and won't allow you to move them. I have 3-4 sub-folders under Applications and have moved apps like FaceTime, Garage Band, Photo Booth, etc already.

Some apps, I can understand since they may get launched by other apps and are hard-coded to find them in a certain location. But Chess ? iBooks ? Maps ? There's plenty more....

Get info on the one you want to move and make yourself the owner with read write permissions and you can move it where ever you would like. Just tested it.

I figured there was a brute-force option for moving things like this... I may resort to that.
