How do I make "RAR expander" my default program for .rar files?Or is there another program you would recommend?
Background:I used "RAR expander" for a long time until I came across a file it was not compatible with. I then downloaded and installed "The Unarchiver" and it worked on the file "RAR expander" would not open.
After that "The Unarchiver" became the default program for .rar files. The problem is that "The Unarchiver" does not work well with password protected files. So for months now I have just manually opened "RAR expander" whenever I try to open a password protected file.
I want to keep both programs so I will be able to open any file, but as I rarely use "The Unarchiver" I would like to have that be the one I have to dig through sub-folders to use. That is, unless there is some excellent program I have not tried.
I decided to try safari 3 again after I got Leopard, I like it except for one thing, some links will open in a new window that in other browsers would open in a new tab. is there any way to make Safari do this by default without having to command click on the links?
When going to a linked page in Safari I usually want to open it in a new tab or a new window and occasionally to do other things with it. So I'm used to right-clicking on links to bring up a contextual menu offering me:
Open Link in New Window Open Link in New Tab Download Linked File Download Linked File As... Add Link to Bookmarks...
Copy Link: I noticed the loss of this menu when my wife wanted me to look at web pages she had found related to a possible holiday. Using Safari in her account on our iMac, I found no menu appeared when I right-clicked on a link. I checked she had the "secondary button" set up OK in the mouse preferences and I also found right-clicking worked OK elsewhere. I then tried other ways of making the menu appear on a link (CTRL-clicking or holding down the left, primary button); neither worked!................
When i click on an email link in a site to contact, then by default Mail app opens! Is there a way to override the opening with Mail and just simply be able to copy the email link in order to use it with my web based email acount?
I'd like to change the Safari default favicon: I already looked through the Resources folder and used F-Script to see if I could find anything, but I was not succesfull. Is there any way to customize this icon?
I was using an extension called 'yaysyoutube' to set the default quality on YouTube to the highest possible res, but the latest nighties of Webkit have totally broken it. Does anyone know of any alternatives?
Does anyone know if there is a way to change the default email editor that launches when you click on an email link in Safari? I'd like for it to launch Gmail in a new window rather than launch Apple's Mail.
I've been able to do this in Firefox and would love to be able to do it with Safari.
A co-worker (who isn't English speaking) would like to change Safari so that when he enters a site name into the address bar (for example "ford") that Safari doesn't automatically add ".com" to the address. Instead he wants the browser to use ".ch" (Switzerland) as the default autocomplete in the address line. Anyone know how we can change that (maybe in Terminal)..?
I'm trying to change the default program that opens PDF files in safari from preview to Adobe acrobat reader. I'm trying to do this because I prepare taxes and preview doesn't seem to fill in fields properly on forms such as
In Adobe reader->Preferences->internet Display PDF in browser using Adobe Reader (9.3.1) is checked and beyond this I'm not sure what to do to change from preview to reader.
As it's default setting, .wmv files open up with VLC. How do I change it so it's default program is Quicktime? I have the codec installed and it plays with no problem. I know I can go into "get info" and check "always open with" but it only does it with that file and not all .wmv files
Been on Windows 7 for a while now, and when I first installed Windows 7 (upgrade from Vista) I've been getting an error saying I have no default mail program. I use Windows Mail with my hotmail account, but it still gives me an error. I did not do a clean install of Win7, I upgraded it (to where it saved all of my previous data)
Whenever I attempt to change the default program to open a file, it automatically reverts to whatever was selected previously. I work with a lot of .ai files and my default Illustrator version is set to Creative Cloud. CC crashes constantly on my machine, however CS6 runs smooth as silk. I'd like to be able to double click an .ai file and have it open in CS6, not CC. When I right click > Get Info > Open with and change it, it reverts as soon as I click "Change all..."

I have replaced many of LCD in PowerBooks and one of the things I noticed is after you remove the aluminum panel there's a little round magnet on the back of the LCD... What is this for? I have also seem a handful of cases where pressure applied to the back panel has caused this magnet to crack the LCD.
I have been trying to browz with my Safari with no success while I have no problem with firefox. the masage i get is safari can not connect the server. What can I do to correct it? My mail has a similar problem. I cant even up date my software for the same reason.
I recently purchased a 2010 entry level Macbook Pro and could go on forever about the things I love about it. The magnet in the mag-safe ac adapter, however, is far too strong. Although I would not subject my new notebook to a test to prove this, I highly doubt that if someone were to trip the cord while walking by, the adapter would tear away without pulling my notebook along with it as is intended. In addition, the mag-safe adapter is problematic even when attempting to plug into my computer for a charge. The strength of the magnet often latches uncleanly to the computer causing scratch marks to the aluminum around port. Given how anal I am about keeping my new Macbook Pro beautiful, this is an irritation. What do you guys think? to properly serve its purpose, should the magnet have less strength?
I want to capture selections on my screen and add comments. Is there a program out there that will allow me to do that? I don't like the "grab it" program because it saves the captured file in a Tiff format instead of a Jpeg format.
I'm trying to download the installer file for Safari 4 -- I need both the Windows XP and Vista versions. However, I'm on my Mac right now and Apple.com won't allow me to download Windows versions, just the Mac version. Anyone have direct links to the downloads? (Or can point me in the right direction to finding them?
When I click on a link on any web page, a "bubble" travels across the screen and "enters" the history icon. I then have to open History to find the link and then click on it. It then moves to a tab under the bookmarks bar and I have to click on that in order to open the link. This problem started suddenly today, several weeks after I upgraded to OS X Lion. Everything was fine before. My Safari is version 5.1.3.
Visited link colors in Safari, most notably visited Google links when I return to the search page, don't change colors as they used to do. Actually, I think it's been that way for a long time (years) now but I am just now coming back around to being interested in why and if there is a way to get back to the days where new links were BLUE and visited links were GREEN (or whatever color you wanted).Is this still possible with the new Safari and if so, how do you go about setting this visted link color preference?
