MacBook Pro :: Can't Remove Applications From Desktops

Nov 13, 2009

so...I have a macbook pro and recently I put several applications on the desktop: itunes and safari now, i want to remove these applications from my desktop WITHOUT deleting them and reinstalling them

another problem is i downloaded skype for my mac, and then i put it on the desktop

i didn't like it like that, so i tried to get it off the desktop

i ended up deleting it and reinstalling it, which is my first problem

i reinstalled it and now there's this symbol on my desktop

it's like a symbol you get when you insert a usb drive into the computer, except its blue and has a skype logo on it

Desktops :: Can't Remove Screws To IMac Memory Compartment?

Oct 31, 2009

I have a 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo 20 inch iMac (early 2006). I have purchased additional memory that I want to install but when I try to remove the cross point screws holding the cover plate over the memory compartment they will not budge. I am afraid to squirt them with WD40 since I fear overspray would probably go into the memory compartment. I am also afraid to "bump" the screws by tapping the end of the screwdriver with a hamer since the shock might damage the drives. Have anyone of you had this difficulty? If so how did you solve it.

Applications :: Will Facetime Ever Come To Mac OS X; Desktops & Laptops

Oct 7, 2010

I now have a iPhone 4. Cant use Facetime as yet, and only a few people have an iphone 4, and they are workmates.

It would be great to be able to use Facetime on an iMac or even a Win PC with an integrated webcam, as I understand that Facetime is "Open format" for others to implement?

I would love to be able to use it with a Computer so eg I could use Facetime for my daughter when Im out and about on my iPhone 4, and she at home on Win PC/iMac?

Will this ever come? I know its only WiFi so far, but surely for it to work it has to go over cellar network and use Computers?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Assign To All Desktops For Multiple Applications

Jun 20, 2012

Trying to set up a second monitor, which I want to use as my "universal communication dashboard" across all of my spaces.In other words, I want to run a bunch of applications there which should appear regardless of which space I'm on. To do this I know that I just right click the application and select "Assign To: All Desktops" but for whatever reason only one of the applications follows me from screen to screen, even if I have all three selected.All three applications are set to start on login.This seems like a blatant bug in Lion and I would love advice on how to fix it, or how to nag Apple until it gets fixed.

Applications :: Temporarily Remove Firefox From Macbook?

Apr 9, 2009

As much as I trust him, I have a suspicion he might vandalise my facebook or bid on something on ebay, since firefox remembers my passwords. So, if I drag firefox out of applications and onto a pendrive, will i be able to stop it working and then drag it back on the next day? (I know it would work with most apps, but I don't know where firefox keeps passwords and cookies etc)

MacBook Pro :: Mail Malfunction On It And Desktops

Mar 24, 2012

My wife and I both have had a mail problem that has come up intermitantly for over a year. It's happened on both Snow Leopard and Lion; on our desktop, my MB Pro, and my wife's MB Air. About once a week our mail server (AOL) rejects the password, giving the following message:We use the correct passwords, but it keeps rejecting, with this error message continually popping up. When this happens, I go to and check my mail. The password always works, and the messages are all there. So there's nothing inherently wrong with our web mail accounts, and our passwords are right.Sometimes the problem will last a few minutes, other times several hours. And then, for no apparent reason, we open our Mac Mail app again, and it works just fine.

OS X :: Remove Unwanted Connected Guest / Remove From System With Disable Sharing

Jun 9, 2008

I've just noticed that in my Finder window sidebar, under "Shared", I have a character called Thomson listed. I don't know any Thomson and I bought the machine, an MBA, brand new. However, I did have an engineer instal the machine in my apartment and can only assume he's the mysterious Thomson. Anyway, whoever he/she is, I don't want him/her on my machine as Shared & "connected as guest". The point is, I cannot find a way to delete Thomson!! Can anyone help? I've tried System Preferences>Security and Accounts and there's no trace of Thomson there. Right clicking on Thomson in the sidebar of Finder only gives me the option to Open and Get Info. Most annoying, this. There MUST be a way to delete a Sharing but totally unwanted guest....

MacBook :: Managing Dual Monitor With Multiple Desktops

May 29, 2012

After updating to Lion, I set my macbook up with a few different desktops so I could easily swipe between them instead of searching for the windows I needed.I just set up a second monitor to my mac and noticed that anytime I swipe to a different desktop, both monitors change. Is there a way to "freeze" one while the other moves? Or better yet, can I set up my second monitor to only have one desktop while my mac still has 2 or more?

Applications :: Remove ITunes Movies DRM?

Jan 5, 2011

Now I know how this looks... but trust me, I'm not here to commit piracy. I just wish to see my TV shows/Movies on my big screen. My FreeSat box has a USB port which reads many many file formats, but not iTunes protected .m4v's.

Is there any way at all to remove the DRM and convert the files into something like .mp4 or .avi or .mpg? I know it isn't strictly legal, but I'm not forking out ÔŅĹ99 for a TV and having another household running appliance when my FreeSat box can do just a good a job.

Applications :: How To Disable/remove App Store

Jan 7, 2011

Does anyone know how one would go about disabling and removing the Mac App Store outside of using Parental Controls? Here's what I've tried:

1. Trashing App entirely - which seems to re-assign the "App Store" link in the Apple menu back to "Mac OS X Downloads..."; the only problem is that when you attempt to open a file type that OS X doesnt recognize, the dialog asks you if you want to search the App Store at which point you hit the button and it does nothing. Not a proper solution.

Applications :: Can't Remove App Store From Dock?

I have just upgraded to 10.6.6 and App Store has installed itself on the Dock. I wish to remove it from the Dock as (a) I am unlikely to use it, and (b) I don't want a cluttered Dock.

However whenever I drag the icon off the dock and it disappears in the traditional cloud of smoke, the next time I start up the computer the icon is back on the dock.
