I am very very new to Mac. Here is my question:
I have downloaded VLC player and then I clicked on the dmg file. I moved the VLC icon to Applications folder in the opening window.
Now when I start Spotlight and type VLC I can open the app which is great. But there is also an icon on the desktop. What is this?
It looks like a hard drive icon but I am not sure. When I right click on it I see:
Disk image: /Users/kt/Downloads/vlc-..dmg
Format: Mac OS Extended
Capacity: 134 MB
Available: 13 MB
Anyway what is this file? Is it like a Windows shortcut? Is it the file I downloaded in the first place? (But it was downloaded do "Downloads" folder)
