Lets say I have a friend / family member and I occasionally allow them to use the delights of Safari and OS X. Now, I don't want replies stating if you don't trust them don't allow them but, is it all possible to have users not clear the history of sites they may have been browsing?
I have a problem with Safari. I want to delete the information of users and password of Safari's autofill, so I go to Safari - Preferences - Autofil - User and password - Edit, and when I click on delete all, the only thing that happens is that all the information remain selected. I try to uninstall safari, but I can't. I'm using the Spanish version of Lion. What can I do? I like using Safari, but I want to delete this information.
Info: Safari, Mac OS X (10.7.2), Using the Spanish version
Selling a mac, and would like to do just what the title states, back to "factory settings" without removing updates & Apps. This used to be relatively simple in Tiger and earlier, but then they got rid of the netinfo database in Leopard. The private/var/db/.AppleSetupDone file is still in the same place, I just can't figure out where the user info is stored now so I can get rid of it.
I am currently am MBA student and must create projects using power point/ keynote, very often. Many of the power points/ keynotes created by students are informative but lack the ability to hold an audience’s attention (boring). Since I have this wonderful Macbook pro, I would like to create a dynamic keynote presentation which would include clips of audio and video files (I already know about converting keynote to power point). The only problem is, the videos I want to use in the keynote presentation are not able to be manipulated in iMovie (due to their format), and if they where able to be manipulated in iMovie, I’m not sure that PC users would be able to properly view them.
What video format (including embedded audio) is able to be viewed and heard by both OSX Lion users and Windows users? If this is possible, can anyone suggest a safe application that I can purchase from the apple app store that will allow me to convert video files (including embedded audio) so that it can be viewed by both Lion and PC users? Preferably one that does not need access to the internet in order to convert the files ( I’m on the go allot and use an air card for internet access), but I will take it if this is the best option. If the app store does not have this type of application, is there a place that I can download a safe one?
Today when we started trying to add users to our server (we use it only for afp access at this time), we noticed that new users belonging to a group "storage" were unable to login from client machines via afp (clients both 10.7.2 and 10.6.8).
When we tried editing the users accounts to change which groups they belonged to, it would appear in workgroup (and server preferences) that the changes would take but there was still no access.
As a test case, we modified an existing user who had no issues logging in to belong to a diffenent group and have different sharepoint access. The changes looked good in workgroup and server prefs, but when the user logged in, he was only able to acces his old sharepoint and not the new one (and since his permissions to the old were removed, he shouldn't have access to that sharepoint).
Also, for some reason users cannot be deleted within workgroup manager any more. The login used was the diradmin account.
How do I delete text. Let's say I wrote the wrong word, as you know a Windows keyboard has "Delete" and "Backspace" keys, but a MacBook keyboard only has a "Delete" key which acts like the "Backspace" key. So in order for me to delete on work I have to go behind the text and use it like backspace.. how do I just delete the word from the front?
This morning I suddenly found out that, on my new macbook pro, command-delete will delete the file (with the warning window) immediately without putting it into trash first. This function works well yesterday.
I want to delete a large number of old emails in my Mac Mail inbox. I have 4425 in inbox and want to delete all but current ones. How do I highlight the mails, as a group, from the oldest to mail to most current that I want to delete?
I recently (a few months ago actually!) got a new unibody 15" macbook pro which I love - when I set it up I migrated from my time-machine backup and it seemed to go pretty seamless - I have since upgraded to snow leopard and all is good with the world. Now my new unibody machine has a 320Gb drive where my old machine was quite small so I was shocked to see that i have already used 220Gb - but looking at the macHD at the root I can the usual, 'library', 'applications', 'system' and 'users' - but also see lots of unusual folders:
"users (from old mac)" - which is 55Gb and last modified before I bought my new unibody - can this be safely deleted now? also there are a few folders which have a little arrow pointing into the folder on the bottom left hand corner - what are they? The specific folders are:
'tmp (from old mac)' 'etc (from old mac)' 'user guides and information'
these are all just 4k on disc so am I assuming they are just shortcuts? Any other tips for free-ing up space in a post-migration mac?
I own an IMac with two users on it, mine and my partners. She recently got a new Macbook and wants to only transfer her user information using Migration Assistant. Is this possible or will it try and migrate both users over?
We're a family of 3 users with our own Apple accounts. We all use one MacBook Pro. Can we share videos & music that one of us might have purchased from the iTunes store so that we don't have to use one another accounts?
I have seen time and time again people suggest hook up the mbp to an external screen when at home.
So how do you "most" of your work at home?
One reason I like macs is because they are simple and easy. I could not imagine going back to a PC desktop with all the wires and space needed. I use a 27 imac at home and a mbp at when i want to be portable.
I recently used migration assistant and transfered all my data from my old samsung laptop to my mac. When it was finished I went to organize the data and could not find it, untill i restared my mac and discoverd two users. First user was one from when I started up my mac and created, the second had the picture from my old user on my old laptop..needless to say i figured out thats where all my transfered data went but that is not useful to me at all and i just want it combined on my main user account. all i want is the files and such all on my main user or both users combined somehow, is that possible?
I want to purchase the FaceTime App for my MBP, but i want to be sure that it will work for all users on my MBP. My wife and I (much to my dislike) share my MBP and When i go out of town, I want to be able to use the FaceTime app to chat with her and my son. We use seperate App store accounts for our Iphones (3g and 4s) will this matter?
Basically my question is exactly that. I am a new to mac user, and have got a new mac air. Whilst in the store setting up our new mac the people in the shop told us that we could only have 1 icloud account per user, and therefore my wife and i should set up separte user accounts. Great. However, we both want to be able to access all of our photos and our music library. I have been into the sharing folders, but i must be doing somthing wrong, because as my wife turns on iphoto in her user account, she cannot access any of our photos.
When I login, I see the following screen. I can't click on any of the 3 users - the track-pad doesn't respond. I have tried with an external mouse, the cursor moves around but wouldn't click, so this is not a trackpad issue. Holding down the SHIFT key doesn't work - the Safe Mode won't start.
