From time to time it seems MAC OS X will unmount a CD/DVD, but won’t actually eject it. The drive just doesn’t seem to want to eject, no matter how long you hold the eject key down. Before trying to find some pliers and a screwdriver (which is not recommended, contact the Helpdesk) try restarting your mac and push and hold the mouse or trackpad button. Keep it held down and the stuck disc should eject if the disc drive is still functional.

A quick way to launch an app is to put your Applications folder in the Dock. When you click on it, it’ll pop open as a stack. Now you can start typing a few letters of the app you want such as “fire” to highlight Firefox, or “iMo” to highlight iMovie, once it is highlight just press enter and the app will launch. Below is an example of how it looks once you click on your applications folder.
