MacBook Air :: Desktop Icon Defaults To Tiny Size

Jun 23, 2014

My desktop icon size CONTINUALLY defaults to a very tiny size.  I know where to change the size > click on desktop > show view options > adjust icon size; however, inevitably as soon as I close it out, it defaults back to a very tiny size..I mean VERY tiny.  So I have to continually do the above procedure to increase the size again. Doesn't look like there is a way to LOCK that desktop icon size.

MacBook Pro :: Changing Which Desktop Program Opens In

Feb 8, 2012

About a month ago I upgraded my computer from Snow Leopard to Lion, but now there are some features that I had in Snow Leopard that I can't figure out how to change in Lion.I heavily relied on Spaces for opening my programs and more importantly, opening up certain programs in certain desktops. I was able to go into my System Preferences and choose which program I wanted to open up in which desktop in Spaces. Now that I have Lion (and Spaces is gone) certain programs still open up in certain desktops, but I don't want that feature anymore. Am I stuck with programs opening up in those selected desktops, or is there somewhere in my computer that I can go to change that?

Software :: Changing Fonts Size In Safari?

Jun 11, 2010

In Safari, I clicked "Help", searched for fonts, and it told me I had to go to Safari -> Preferences ->Appearance in order to select a new font size. I did so. On this very page at macos. I changed the font to 48! And it made absolutely no difference. So, what's the correct way to change the font size in Safari? And, for that matter, how do I reload a web page in Safari?
