The first thing you should do is to open the Console app. To do that click in the Spotlight Search box in the upper right hand corner. Type Console and then double click the application to open it.
This sounds more complicated than it is
Note: I’ve received a bunch of emails asking how to best open the files I mention below. The easiest thing you can do is to download Text Wrangler (It’s Free).
Then to open the files just click File -> Open File By Name. Then enter the name of the file you want to open. You’ll probably have to enter your password because these files are protected.

Mac OSX Lion Review
So what do I think about Mac OSX Lion? Aside from breaking my Web Sharing it is ok. I mean who can complain about a $30 OS upgrade? Here are the new features and what I think.
Launchpad opens all of your applications on the screen like you get with an iPad. The only reason I can imagine anyone would ever use this is if they want to quickly find an application that isn’t on their dock.
The idiotic thing about Launchpad is that every application is loaded into it. What is even more idiotic is that you can’t remove applications from Launchpad!
Grade : D
Mission Control spreads all of your currently open applications out on the screen. It also displays all of your desktops and allows you to assign each application to its own individual desktop.
I can see myself maybe using this feature. It helps with organization when you have numerous applications open at the same time.
Grade : B
Resume saves all of your currently open applications in their current state when you shutdown your machine. You no longer are forced to save everything before you can shutdown. This is a nice feature and I have used it numerous times already.
Grade : A
Autosave & Versions
Autosave and Versions work in concert with each other to keep you from losing valuable work. Their names are self explanatory and they save you from ever worrying about a power outage.
Grade : A
Air Drop allows you to easily send files to nearby computers that also have Air Drop even without a wifi network. If that sounds good to you, Great! I however don’t imagine I’ll ever use this feature.

Mail has been changed looks wise. Mail also automatically is sorted into folders so that you can more easily keep track of a long series of emails that you’ve received from the same person. It also organizes messages based off of similar topics. Here is what the new interface looks like
Grade : B
Full Screen Applications
Yes some applications can be viewed at full screen. I was actually excited about this until I realized Adobe applications still can’t be viewed in full screen mode. You’ll either like this, or you won’t?
