OS X :: How To Delete An Item From Downloads Folder
Is there a way to delete an item from my downloads folder that is in my dock without dragging it to the trash? Is there a way to get a context menu on items in the downloads folder?

OS X :: Backwards - Delete Downloads Stack
I accidentally deleted my "downloads" stack, so I dragged the "downloads" folder from my home directory into the dock. Lo and behold, the stack came back...but not the way I remembered it. Everything was "backwards" if I tried to sort by "date added". Normally, the most recent downloads are at the bottom; however, now it is backwards. I didn't lose any files, but it is very annoying! I Googled this issue and it seemed like trashing the dock plist would solve the problem. I did that, logged out, and logged back in, and it sure did reset all of the dock settings to their defaults - everything, of course, EXCEPT for the downloads stack! It did more harm than good - all of my icons are out of place now, and yet I am still having the same old "backwards" issue with the downloads stack. Does anyone know where this problem actually lies?

OS X :: Unable To View And Delete Zip Part File In Downloads?
I've got an issue where I have a bunch of .zip.part files in my downloads stack, which I cannot remove (I do not know how to remove a file directly from the stack, perhaps there's a way?) because when I open the downloads folder in finder, they aren't there.

Applications :: Unable To Empty ITunes Store List / Delete Unwanted Downloads From The ITunes
I have a batch of HD video downloads in my iTunes Store queue that I can't delete. Before it was annoying, having to purchase both the regular video and HD video, then delete the unwanted HD download from my queue list, but now it's a problem. I can't empty the unwanted HD downloads, and for me to download them all will tie up my connection for a week or more.

I do not have the bandwidth

ITunes :: Stop Getting My Mom's Downloads Through Automatic Downloads?
I have a mac, and my mom has a PC. I have been on her account since I was pretty young, so It's a shared account. It's under my email and apple ID, but my mom is on the same account, on her own computer. I want to have automatic downloads so I can use it for my iphone and ipad, but I don't want her song to end up going to my devices or laptop when she downloads from her own computer. is there a way to either turn off automatic downloads for just one computer, or get her a new account, but letting her transfer all of her music onto the new one?

Safari :: It Doesn't Keep Past Downloads In Downloads List
This problem I've been having started when the latest version of Safari moved from a Downloads window to a Downloads pop-up pane. My expectation as to how the pane should work is this: the 20 most recent downloads are shown in the list, and when a new download begins, the oldest download is removed from the list, thereby keeping the new list updated with the 20 latest downloads. My problem is that while the pane still keeps 20 past downloads listed, they're not always recent downloads. For example, when I download a file, the file will typically remain in the list until I begin a new download, at which point the slightly earlier download will be removed from the list, while even older downloads remain listed. So at the moment, listed are five recent downloads and fifteen downloads from many months ago, while downloads from days or hours ago have been removed from the list.In Preferences I have (and always have) "Remove download list items" set to "Manually." Currently I am running the lasted versions of OSX (10.7.3) and Safari (5.1.5).

MacBook Pro :: Delete Text - Delete And Backspace Keys
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?

MacBook Pro :: If I Delete A User Account Does That Delete His Library?
I never use "User Accounts" on my MacBook. So I don't know much about them.

If I delete one User Account, will it delete that user's libraries, such as their music, movies, documents, etc?

Also, will it delete the programs that were installed under that user's account, but are accessible by all users?

MacBook Pro :: Browser And Downloads Are Incredibly Slow
everything has been fine other than Activity monitor opening but just hanging, spinning pinwheel. There doesnt seem to be a file in library/preferences "com.apple.activitymonitor.plist" which I read could be the culprit. The main problem is that browsing and DL's have slowed to a crawl under 1mps down according to speedtest,where my phone using the same wifi access point is getting at least 5. This is for Firefox as well as Safari. Im sort of at my wits end here and willing to just wipe and start over but i dont have the disks. This seems like the sort of behaviour that occured on my PC when i got a Trojan or loaded up with Spyware. I did do an Avast and Clamxav scans to be sure. Im sure Ill find more to annoy you fine people with in the future but for now it would take far to long for the web page to open.

MacBook Pro :: Software Update / FF And Chrome Downloads Not Working
I have a mac book pro with leopard on it. Since quite a few days my software update is not working anymore, the progressbar just gets stuck without any progress. Same for downloads via FireFox and Chrome, but the odd thing is, Safari is still working fine. Already checked the system for flashback and checked the hosts file and a new com.apple.softwareupdate.plist got created... without success.

MacBook Pro :: OS X Update Downloads But Won't Install
When I try to update Mac OS X combined update 10.7.4 on MBP, it downloads but won't install. I get a message that says it couldn't expand and may be corrupted. This has happened multiple times now.I thought it might be due to lack of space on the hard drive so i cleared some space (there's now at least 49GB space) and it still won't work. I also have updates for Motion Supplemental Control and Final Cut Pro X supplemental that do the same. Tried doing it one by one, and tried downloading myself but the problem seems to be the expanding installing not the downloading.

MacBook Pro :: Outlook 2011 Constantly Downloads My Gmail Inbox
I followed the automatic steps for setting up my Outlook 2011 for mac with my gmail account. It started downloading every single email I've had since 2006. 35,000 emails are now loaded on my new mac--not necessary at all. And I don't want the extra (gmail) inbox in Outlook. Is there a way to just have the "on my computer" folders and not the added gmail folders? The whole point of saving email on gmail is so I don't have to keep them all on my computer.

MacBook Pro :: Safari Download Window Won't Show Downloads?
Last night, I was trying to download Xcode 3.2.5 and it wouldn't show up in my downloads window.

This is what it looks like. as you can see, it says the number of DLs at the bottom of the window.

The file DOES download, but for some reason, it just wont show up in my download window.
