As these vintage computers are tested and processed, it is amazing how much you remember about operating them! It can also be challenging to find those things that you don’t remember. For example, do you remember how to perform the memory test on an Apple IIe? If yes, congratulations! For those of us that couldn’t quite pull it out of our memory banks, you hold down the closed Apple, open Apple and Control keys while you press and release the Reset key.
The closed Apple key became the Option key on the later //e, Apple IIGS and Macintosh. The open Apple key became or is also known as the Command key on all but the earliest Macs. You can often tell how long someone has been an Apple II or Mac user by what they call this key 😉
The memory test on the Apple IIGS would then be hold down the Apple, Option and Control keys while you press and release the Reset key. I did remember this one!
Or how about a warm reboot on the Apple II or Mac? Apple (Command), Control and Reset will do it.
