OS X :: Open A New Window On Application Launch?

Nov 27, 2007

For example, (when Safari or Terminal application is already launched) pressing the dock icon or launching from quicksilver brings the window to the front (or moves to a specific space where the window is in).

Is it possible to modify this behavior to opening a new window? By clicking the dock icon (or some sequence of keyboard shortcuts) I want to open a new window of safari or terminal. Furthermore, it would be great if
this can be done to the current 'space'.

Is there a simple way of doing this?

It may have been upgraded likewise. Does all this relate to the fatc that I cant use photobooth and ichat doesnt detect the isight?

Software :: Using Keyboard Shortcut To Launch Application?

Feb 20, 2006

I'm OS X 10.4.4. G4 15". I wanna launch applications just by pressing a function key. Used to do this with system 9. Mac help seems to imply I can't. Note: You can create keyboard shortcuts only for existing menu commands. You cannot define keyboard shortcuts for general purpose tasks such as opening an application or switching between applications. Am I slow, or is this saying I can't "quick launch" an app with a press of one button? Is this really true? Is there no "one touch" way to launch stuff? (And not on startup - I've got that figured out.)

Software :: How To Use Terminal To Launch Application While Holding Key Down

Jul 10, 2009

If you launch iTunes while holding the option key, itunes will allow you to access multiple libraries.

I want to be able to achieve the same effect with a shell command.

Is there a way to launch itunes from shell in a way that will give it the same instructions that it gets when you hold down the option key and open it from finder?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Get Any Newly-installed Application To Launch

Apr 20, 2012

So everything installed on my Lion iMac works absolutely fine. However, I recently tried to re-install Appfresh (an application updater), so I used Appcleaner to uninstall it, grabbed a new download, dragged it to Applications as normal, double-clicked it.. nothing. The icon sits in my dock, and the indicator pulses, continuously, but the application never appears. It's not in the Force Quit menu, and Activity Monitor has no trace of it either. 

I thought, okay, something up with Appfresh. But I've since tried a couple of other apps, and a game (Botanicula), and the exact same thing happens. I've done nothing new in the way I've installed them, opened their .dmg files, and dragged the application into Applications, completely normally, but they all do the "sit in the dock and nothing else" thing. If I left-click them once in the dock, they vanish, and that's all I hear of them. I've tried Disk Utility to do both verify and repair permissions to both the disk and the partition, but that hasn't solved the problem. I'm running the latest 10.7.3 with all patches to remove Flashback, etc.

MacBook :: Application Taking Forever To Launch (Getting Beachballs)

Oct 16, 2010

I have a late 2006 MacBook (the one in my signature). It's running the latest issue of Snow Leopard (10.6.4). I have upgraded the factory RAM from 1GB to 2GB, and the factory HDD from 120 GB with a 320 GB hard drive. Lately, all my apps are taking forever to launch. Firefox took 27 bounces before stopping, and then another 10 seconds or so before the window actually appeared. VirtualBox used to be snappy and responsive, but now it's so slow I actually boot up my 8-year old Dell if I need to use Windows. It never used to be this slow.

I'm constantly getting beachballs...even simply quitting Firefox seems to be too much work. Just for kicks, I popped in the factory hard drive and WOW everything felt so much smoother. As far as I can tell, the only things that are different between that hard drive and my current one are that (1) the old one is running Leopard (10.5.6), and (2) I have created a secondary account on the newer setup for my fiance. My two best guesses at this point are:
1. Issue with the new hard drive?
2. MacBook is slightly underpowered for running Snow Leopard?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Stop It From Opening Old Docs When Launch An Application?

Apr 16, 2012

How the heck to I stop Lion from launching old docs when I open a new doc in MS Word, Excel, Preview, etc? I HATE this feature. Twice now I've edited the wrong document because when I click on a new Word doc, one that I worked on last automatic pops up on top of it. This is a ridiculous feature! Also, I don't need photos that I looked at yesterday magically opening when I open a new photo in Preview. That can be embarrassing if is someone is looking over my shoulder, if you know what I mean. Do I need to make sure I close all old docs instead of just quitting. Is there a way to just turn this frustrating auto open feature off?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Making Application Windows Individually Selectable?

Apr 30, 2012

Is there any way to set up Lion so that application windows are individually selectable, and do not trigger the display of all windows for a given application? As a default, when I am working with two word documents open and I select a Firefox window, then return to my primary Word document, the secondary word document appears and covers the Firefox window that I'm working with. I'd like to have the secondary word document stay behind the Firefox window until I need it. I know I could minimize the secondary word doc, but I have a tendancy to forget that minimized windows are open. 

I'm working on combining a lot of information from different sources to make a class outline, and I'd love to be able to individually select an application window without triggering the other windows that are open for that application. Is there a way to make this happen in Lion or with a third-party program?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Prevent Previously Open Windows From Automatically Opening On Application Launch (e.g. Pages, Safari)?

Jun 8, 2012

Whenever I launch Pages, the application opens pretty much all the documents I've worked on.  I take care to close all the windows, hoping that they won't launch again next time I start the application, yet they do.  I can't find a setting in the preferences or Settings to disable this behavior.

Aug 26, 2010

I bought 2x4GB modules of RAM from OWC for my 2009 27" i7 iMac.

IMac :: Install The New Chips, The Mac Won't Start. Period. No Beeps, No Nothing?

Jul 2, 2008

I recently got an 20' 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Imac. It came with 1 gig of Ram. I purchased 2 2Gig SODIMM chips from New Egg. The ram specs matches what the little manual says. ddr2, pc2-5300 667MHz. When I install the new chips, the mac won't start. Period. No beeps, no nothing. I can sort of hear it try to start, then quits.

When I put back the original ram chip. Works again.When I have the original ram chip AND 1 of the new chips (for a total of 3 gigs of RAM) it works.Swapped one new chip with the other (as long as the original is in) Works.Original Chip is on the right side, New is on the left. Swapped places. Works.The mac will start ONLY if the original is in place. I should be able to start it with the nes ones in but it won't. I know both works because I swapped them.Anybody have any ideas on what's going on? Is there a setting somewhere I need to change or something?

IMac (Intel) :: 3 Beeps At Start And Still No Sign Of Life

Sep 8, 2014

I turned my iMac on (2008 model) but after 10 minutes it went black and beeped 3 times loudly, repeating at 5 second cycles.  Shut it down by pressing the ON button for 5 sec.  Restarted and all worked for a hour before repeating the same problem...screen and keyboard and touchpad all locked out....shut down with the ON button.  On restart it gave me the 3 beeps every 5 sec with an ALL BLACK hard disk whirring, either.  I don't know how to do cardiac massage on an iMac.  Is it dead?  Is it the processor?  Is it the video card?  Is it the hard disc?
