MacBook Air :: Delete Apps From Interface / Cannot Drag Them To Trash Can

Aug 23, 2014

I've never really felt the need to delete apps from this interface, but there are a bunch showing up I do not recall installing. They are not listed in the Applications folder. I cannot drag them to the trash can, and no 'x' pops up in the corner when I get the icons wiggling. I found some command on some website for deleting things through terminal but I tried it and it did not work (some error about "too many options"). Again I repeat there is no 'x' on the app icons and there is no way to make it appear.

Intel Mac :: Can't Just Drag To The Trash

May 23, 2012

Since reinstalling my Lion, the Trash has been strange. I can't just drag stuff there without getting a dialogue box telling me it will be deleted immediately. That requires me to click my agreement.  Same thing happens if I right-click my mouse and choose the Trash option.  So my Trash basket stays empty, and I go through a two-step process with every file or program I want to be rid of.

OS X :: Can't Drag Items From Stacks To Trash

Mar 7, 2009

For the last couple of days, I haven't been able to drag any files over from my Stacks to the Trash; nothing happens. I'm forced to open the folder and drag it over from there or Apple+Delete it. I *might* have accidentally deleted a file (I don't remember which) causing this to suddenly happen and haven't been able to figure out how to fix it. It's more of an annoyance than anything else.

Software :: Recovering From Trash - Won't Drag

Apr 20, 2009

In an attempt to delete duplicate files from my iTunes folder, I accidentally deleted the entire contents of the folder into the Trash. I have NOT emptied the trash. I can open the trash can and see all of my files there.

Here's the problem: I click on the files (one or multiple) and try to drag them to another location. They won't drag. I've tried several times.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Can't Drag Applications To The Trash?

May 6, 2012

I downloaded a beta test recently, now it's finished I have the folder sitting in my Applications folder, but it won't let me drag it out into the trash. I've logged in as an Administrator, changed my regular ID to have Admin status, none of it works. I've got the CCleaner app from the App Store, same issue. It tells me I need to be an Admin to uninstall files, but even when I log in as the Admin, it gives me the same message.

Applications :: Uninstall ITunes - Trash Won't Empty It

Jan 2, 2010

iBook G4 Mac OS 10.4.11 iTunes Version? (Can't get info - won't open) I'm pretty sure I was at version 8 around the time I tried to uninstall. I followed instructions here: [URL] I followed all the steps and everything was fine until I tried to empty the trash. All items emptied out except the iTunes application itself. I get an error message that says: "The operation cannot be completed because 'pgs' is in use." What the heck is 'pgs'? I found pgs folders in the System Folder/Mac Help. I'd love to trash them, but don't know that I should.

Applications :: Can No Longer Drag Files From OS X Itunes Library Directly To Trash

Feb 13, 2010

up until a few days ago...maybe after 9.0.3 update...on my macbook pro under snow leopard, im certain i could drag files from itunes library or a playlist into the trash.

if i drug the file from the library to the trash, you would here the trash can "eating sound" and it would be gone from the library (one step). if it was from a playlist, it would delete that file from the playlist but not from the library as expected. now, i cant do either. now i have to right click and delete the file/s and then click move to trash.

OS X :: Uploaded DVD - Which Format Will Work To Drag Into IMovie?

Oct 8, 2010

I uploaded video from my 30 minute dvd onto my Macbook and am trying to drag it into iMovie. The issue is none of the formats at letting me drag it into there. My only goal is to add my website name at the beginning of the video. The MP4 won't work and FLV won't either although that will be the format for youtube. I am using a video converter from Mac with a huge list of formats but don't know which will work to drag it.

Software :: Drag & Drop Doesn't Work In Ubuntu?

Apr 22, 2008

I created a Ubuntu VM on my mac and installed the VMWare tool stuff. Now the mouseover thing and auto screen resizing works, but I can't copy and paste files into my VM...

Is this impossible with Linux or did something go wrong when installing it?

Also, visual performance is really poor, when I drag a window around it moves at a very poor framerate. In Windows XP this is also the case but not as badly, can something be done to improve either of these problems?

OS X :: Trash Won't Empty - Doesn't Work Anymore

Apr 10, 2010

I'd like to empty my trash, but it doesn't work anymore. The trash icon in my dock indicates that there are files in it, but when I click on it the Trash window appears, but the files don't show. The indicator at the bottom right just keeps on animating - it never stops, not even after several hours. furthermore, the "Empty Trash" option in the Finder menu is grayed out. The "Empty Trash" option in the trash icon's right-click menu is not grayed out. However, when I click it, a dialog appears for confirmation; I click on "Empty Trash" and nothing happens. When I list the files in my trash using the terminal (with the "ls" command), the files do show (and there is a considerable number of files). When I try to remove them, using the "rm" command, nothing happens; when I list the files again, they are still there. What must I do to get this mess fixed?

How do you delete individual items from Trash without emptying entire Trash? If I highlight one item in Trash, the only option is the Empty button. I'm afraid it will empty the whole thing. I don't want to do that.

OS X :: Drag Songs From Playlists Into Different Order / Itunes Unable To Drag Songs

Feb 4, 2009

So over the past few months I have noticed this small bug/glitch in iTunes... and it is very annoying.

I cannot drag songs from playlists into different order. iTunes just doesn't let me drag at all.

I have to quit iTunes, then restart it. It will work for one time, but as soon as I got back to "Library" and then try to go back and edit a playlist, I have to exit iTunes.

Any fix for this?
