Downloading and Installing ThoughtOffice on a Mac

  • Create a folder (call it ThoughtOffice) as a sub-folder of your Applications folder (within the Applications folder).
  • Double click the DMG file you downloaded from our site. The ThoughtOffice program image will then mount to your hard drive.
  • Drag & drop the ThoughtOffice application and all the files and folders (created from the DMG) into the new ThoughtOffice folder you created in the first step.
  • Again, be sure that your ThoughtOffice folder is located within your Applications folder. If not, drop the ThoughtOffice folder into the Applications folder.
  • Drag the main ThoughtOffice app out to your Dock to make it easier to launch.
