Kobo - anyone help a non-techie?
MrsJim bought me a Kobo for Christmas which seems like a great gift idea for someone like me who enjoys a good read especially when travelling or on holidays. I'm really pleased - at least with the idea as I can't use it yet!
I downloaded the setup to my home Mac (can't put anything unapproved on my work laptop
) and dropped the icon into Applications as instructed.
Then nothing. I have a Kobo application icon in the App's folder. I have a Kobo icon on my desktop that just opens the Finder window for aforesaid app. I also have a Koboereader icon on my desktop that is apparently full of epub welcome/readme files in different languages (that I can't actually open).
I've faffed with all sorts of double clicking and tried interminably irritating dead ends trying to get the answer off their own help section of the Kobo website s I thoughtI'd pack it in and hope one of the knowledgeable tech-stars in AO could point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
