The screenshot is of R.app.  So do follow the posting guide (see the 

'Platform-specific questions: There are lists R-sig-Mac, R-sig-Debian 
and R-sig-Fedora for R on Mac OS X, Debian/Ubuntu and Fedora/Redhat 
respectively. Questions specific to those platforms (especially re 
installation and the R.app GUI on Mac OS X) are more likely to get 
informed responses on the appropriate list.'

The answer is to set up your Mac correctly, and how to do so is not an R 
question, and the answers will be unintelligible to non-Mac users (and 
probably many Mac users too).  So ask in the right place.
