Enter Time Machine, locate and select the desired
item in the Finder window as in question #15  and control-click (right-click) it, then select the Restore <item selected> to ... option.





Then you'll see a prompt where you can select a location, and TM will place it there.


To use the backups from a different Mac, see question #17.
