Applications :: DOC Keeps Disappearing Every Few Minutes / Unable To View Dock

Aug 9, 2010

My doc disappears every few minutes than reappears suddenly. I have no idea why this is happening. When the doc disappears from the bottom of my desktop I cannot downsize anything until it reappears. Very frustrating! I tried to find something in system preferences but couldn�t. Has anyone else out there had this happen? I�m running 10.2.4.

IMac :: Taskbar Missing Across The Top / Unable To Click Icons In Dock

May 19, 2009

I booted my new 2009 iMac this afternoon and when it came up there was no taskbar across the top. I could not click on the icons on the dock either. the mouse worked and the desktop was there. I have a mouse on my Logitech keyboard and it worked so I know the keyboard did. I had no way to shut down so I held the button down till the machine powered down and it did in a second or so.

I waited about a minute and booted back up again and all came up like normal except the hard drive was running like crazy and the machine was super sluggish.After about a minute the hard drive quit running and all seemed normal.

I shut down like normal and then shut off the surge strip machine is plugged into to have a total power cut. Let sit about 2 minutes powered back on and booted machine and it booted like normal and acts perfectly normal. What caused the anomaly???

Never done it before and machine is about 2 months or old or so. Bought it as soon as new iMac's were released this year. It is the flagship 3.06 iMac. Bone stock. It has all the latest updates. Running 10.5.7

OS X :: Changing Dock Background - Folder Icons And App Icons?

May 1, 2010

First off, I've searched the forums, but can't find an answer -- sorry if I missed something.Just got a new machine running 10.6.3 -- ugh, the dock and folders and so on look like clunky Windows junk :-(I miss my simple, elegant 10.4.11 dock ...I don't want to add novelty icons or that kind of thing, I just want a borderless dock that's semi-transparent or clear. And apparently all the apps out there to change the dock background don't work with Snow Leopard.I know CandyBar can help me with the folder icons and app icons, but as far as I can tell, not the actual dock background.

OS X :: Change Default Finder Toolbar Icons

Dec 27, 2010

I want to change the default finder toolbar icons (back, forward, path and view icons, search, etc), does anyone know the path location for these? I want to make my own icons in photoshop and manually change them, the same way you'd do with the log on screen or icon I know about the customize toolbar option, but that doesn't allow you to change the icons, just to arrange them.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Are Unwanted Icons Appearing On The Toolbar

Jul 2, 2012

OS X Mavericks :: App Store Toolbar Icons Grayed Out

Aug 24, 2014

In App Store Version 1.3, running under OS X 10.9.4, the past couple of days the toolbar icons across the top of the main window --

Featured, Top Charts, Categories, Purchases, Updates -- are all grayed out. So when I try to click on any one of them, nothing happens. 

I can select the corresponding pane by using the App Store's Store menu, and then the grayed-out icon for it shows a very light blue. 

Non-functioing of the toolbar icons is an annoyance. 

But why aren't the toolbar icons working and how do I get them back?

Applications :: Office 2008 Toolbar Icons Missing

Jan 10, 2011

I am using Microsoft Office for Mac 2008, which has been performing fine for many months. Now all of a sudden the icons are missing on my toolbars. All that it shows in the toolbar window, (both standard and format toolbars), is the text without the icons, with just a blank dark area where the tool icons should be, leaving the toolbar impossible to use in any practical way. No amount of selecting or de-selecting the toolbars via drop down window "view", or changing the option for "text and icons", or "resetting� the toolbars in �customise� will change this situation. The problem has occurred in all of "word", "excel", "PowerPoint" and �Entourage�. I have tried reinstalling office from the original CD, but the problem persists. I have even quarantined the �normal.dotm� file before reinstalling office, but it simply created a new "normal" file with the same result. No icons on the toolbars. I am using OS X leopard. I haven't yet resorted to reinstalling leopard, but what else is there?!? Any clues to what has caused this to suddenly occur?

Safari :: Extensions Icons Not Displaying In Color On Toolbar?

May 1, 2012

My Safari windows look grey and bleak, just like the weather.I've double checked my security preferences and allowed third party plug-in access etc, is it that extensions just don't install as coloured icons in Safari? My friend's web browser allows colour and it makes icons easier to find in the Toolbar.

OS X Mavericks :: Why Are Header Icons And Toolbar Buttons Grayed Out

Dec 7, 2014

I purchased a used Macbook Pro from ebay.  Appeared to be in good working order when I first started working with it, but I have updated from OS X 10.9.2 to 10.9.5 and downloaded Open Office program, set up my mail and went through the system preferences and personalized it.  Also ran disk utilities.  Then, this AM, when I restarted, the header icons on the right side are grayed out except for the battery %, the date and time and notifications.  Also, in mail and safari, the toolbar buttons are blank (forward, back, print, mail, bookmarks, autofil, history and downloads). I went to the disk utility from the recovery partition (repaired disk and disk permissions).  I also reset parameters.  Don't know what to do next.  Not sure if this is a hardware or software problem, but I am assuming it is software (OS X) related at this point.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Dock And Toolbar Disappeared?

Jun 16, 2012

The dock and toolbar at the top have disappeared from the screen. They re-appear when I click in the area where they should be but disappear once again whenever I click elsewhere. I have also lost the ability to minimize open windows. I can resize them manually, maximize and exit them I just cannot minimize them! (The orange button has gone grey.)

I have checked that I am not in fullscreen mode and I have unchecked all the automatic hide settings in the system preferences. This is only occuring when I'm using Mozilla Firefox.

I have a feeling that I accidentally clicked a button or unwittingly used a keyboard command to enter this setting, but I can't remember what I pressed!

OS X Mountain Lion :: Toolbar And Dock Are Always Hidden

Dec 4, 2014

Since installing Yosemite (10.10.1) I cannot keep the Dock and the Banner Toolbar visible unless I move my mouse to the top or bottom of screen. 

My Current settings:

 >System Preferences>Dock: the 'Automatically Hide and Show the Dock' is unchecked.

Safari>View: Sdebars are all hidden; Status Bar and Favorites Bar are set to 'Show'. I am in 'Full Screen' but in the upper right corner of the screen, I have no arrows (another Support Post suggested that there should be two arrows facing each other??). 

how to keep Dock and the top-level toolbar visible?

MacBook :: Using / Converting PNGs As Dock Icons

Feb 14, 2009

I've seen all the threads about changing icons in Apps and dock. I'm trying to do this with PNG files. I've tried to use COCOTHUMBX to convert them to icons but the results are unsatisfactory. Perhaps my images are too small. Are there any other ways to either convert, or use PNGs as Icons?

Applications :: Unable To View Calenders In Week View / ICal Calendars Disappearing From Menu

Feb 13, 2006

Earlier tonight I opened iCal, only to find that none of my calendars were there. it was completely empty. However, when I changed the view from "Week" to "Month" all of my events were listed (in the proper color) on the appropriate day, but I still had no list of calendars on the left. Subsequent changes between "Day" "Week" and "Month" view continued to display the events properly, but nothing showed up in the calendar menu on the left.

I repaired permissions same thing happened.I trashed pref (forgot the exact filename)�same behavior. I use .mac to sync between computers, and I use Missing Sync to sync to a Palm T|X.
