Disk Images

To insert disk images, click the Menu button and choose Insert Disk and the list of disks will appear.


Click the Menu button and choose Keyboard to show or hide the keyboard.

The emulated keyboard features all the keys on the Mac Plus keyboard, except the keypad. The Command, Option and Shift keys are sticky. If your device have a physical keyboard you can use it as well.


Use the screen as a touchscreen, where tapping anything sends a mouse click.


You can toggle between full screen (if you have a device with low resolution the Mac screen will be scaled down to fit your screen) or full size (the Mac screen is shown at its real size) by clicking the Select button. In full size mode, you can scroll by using the arrows.


If you press the home button while the emulated Mac has disks inserted, Mini vMac will pause but stay open. To quit Mini vMac properly, eject all disks before pressing home. Note that when Mini vMac is suspended, it still uses memory and could be forced to quit if the memory is low.
