People who firstly switching to macOS from Windows will get many questions and confusions about how to use this new OS. Although there have been many cool programs attached on your new machine, you might also want to get more other programs for your needs. So, in this post, I would like to introduce several ways to install a program on the Mac.
What is an app installer for Mac? Generally there are three different types of installers:
DMG – disk image with a .dmg extension
ZIP – compressed files of the installer
PKG – package file
PKG file is a kind of installation package that will make changes to the system in order to let the app run its services and several modules effectively. And people usually need to take some steps to finish the installation process.
By default, all of installed applications will be stored in the Applications folder, so it is straightforward to find the app you want.
