MacBook Pro :: Why Does My Desktop Image Change Back

Sep 28, 2009

If I change my desktop image, it often changes back to its previous setting next time I boot up. And- it doesn't remain constant between graphics cards either. (15" late '08 UMBP)

It changes when I connect external monitors, and it changes when I bring it home from work and boot up.

I just can't wrap my head around it. I have to change it every time I boot up, actually.

In System Prefs, selected Desktop & Screensaver. Selected image from pane at right. Used to be the desktop image would change as soon as I clicked on it. Now, nothing happens. Same results when I select an Apple image vs my own jpeg.

OS X Mavericks :: Can No Longer Change Desktop Image

Jun 6, 2014

I go into System Preferences, choose a new photo, close System Preferences, the old photo is still there.  I have rebooted multiple times, closing all programs first, just in case something open is preventing the switch.  I just cant figure this out, I have always been able to change before with no problem.  The ScreenSaver is changeable, by the way, that works fine.

OS X :: Use Image As Desktop - Cannot Find The Image From Where I Have Stored?

Apr 14, 2009

I recently right clicked a picture to set it as my desktop picture but didn't have the foresight to save the picture in case I wanted to change it later. I still have the picture up but I cannot find where the picture is stored so I can save it for later. I checked HD/Library/desktop pictures but no luck. Does anyone know where these pictures are saved?

Feb 23, 2008

Been trying to create a CD image mounted on my Desktop, as to load the program it needs to know that the CD is in the optical drive of the MacBook Air. But the program doesn't actually use the CD, its just verifying that I own a copy. Is there anyway I could start the program without actually having the CD in my drive? Anyway of making the Computer think that the CD is actually present, such as mounting the CD image on the Desktop?

MacBook :: Desktop Image Doesn't Fit As Well As With Windows?

Dec 18, 2010

Haven't had any success searching for an answer.

I have an aluminum macbook (April 2009) and when I use a picture as a desk top image, even HD resolution pics it never quite fits well as wallpaper. I have tried all options (stretch, full screen, etc).

When I had windows pics would always fit nicely. With my mac its either too stretched and just doesn't fit well

Anyone else have this issue? Am I missing something?

MacBook Pro :: Applications Leaving Disk Image On Desktop?

Aug 28, 2009

I feel stupid for asking this but why do some applications leave a disk image on the desktop after it is installed? you can eject it and it goes away but then reappears every time you launch the program again. I noticed this happens mainly with applications you get off the web such as Google Earth. It is very annoying because I like to keep my desktop clean. So my question is how do you avoid having this disk image appear every time Google Earth launches for example. Is it normal for some programs? or did I install it wrong?

MacBook Pro :: Lost HD And Other Desktop Items - How To Get Them Back

Sep 21, 2009

Woke up this morning late, so I didn't check the weather online like I usually do. Unplugged everything from my MBP (including an external display) while it was still asleep, tossed it in my back after it slept again, and headed out the door. When I got to class, all of my desktop items are gone. Macintosh HD, mounted dmg's, some files, and some other things are all gone off my desktop. They obviously still exist and I can open them from Finder

All of the desktop icons have no image on them. We are starting to accumulate quite a few icons and they all look the same (an @ sign) and we have to read what is written underneath which is time consuming. Just wondering if there is a way to add a different photo to the icon?

ITunes For Mac :: Change WMV To MP3 - Image Unrecognizable

Jun 17, 2014

How to convert wmv. to mp3, then put them into itunes. I have found alot of downloads for this, but I get alot of "image not recognized"  I've spent days on this and want to know how to make them "recognizable" without spending another whole day trying to figure this out, or is there any criteria so I wont keep running into this?  cant just do the conversion in itunes.  I have tried most of programs including VLC and other top rated ones. Audacity even seems cryptic to me. A friend said if I download WM Player but again they are "unrecognizable."

OS X :: Can't Change Em Back After Change Permissions

Dec 12, 2009

On the Get Info tab of my Applications folder I changed the permissions so that I have all the read and write rights of the whole folder. The it somehow changed to Name: system, and the Privilege: Read and Write. I didn't know that I was NEVER supposed to do that until I googled the issue. I googled a lot, and most of the solutions says that I need my mac DVD. I am currently in North Africa visiting my parents, and my Disks are back home. I tried many things, but the more I try, the more I seem to mess up my macbook. I have a macbook white with Mac OS X 10.5.8. Some suggest to go to Terminal, and use chown -R, but as soon as I open Terminal, i get the following:

login: PAM Error (line 400): System error
login: Could not determine audit condition

[Process exited - exit code 1]

I tried many suggestions, namely: " But I can't use Terminal.......................

MacBook Pro :: Keys Suddenly Changed - How Can I Change Them Back

Jan 10, 2011

I have no idea what happened but somehow the function of some of the keys on the top row on my Macbook Pro keyboard changed. For instance the dashboard key does nothing while the F12 key now shows the dashboard, F11 shows the desktop while F9 does what F3 did before etc.

I'm certain no fluids were spilt on the keys.

After I restarted and tried to change them back to the default function in the system preferences window, nothing happened.

How can I restore the defaults?
