Software :: IDisk Icon Eject Button Missing In Sidebar Finder Window

Mar 2, 2006

I am a pretty experienced Mac user but have never ran into this problem. My iDisk icon in the sidebar of the Finder window doesn't have an eject button. Any disk or other removable drive gives me the eject button but not the iDisk. I am running on the latest version of Tiger (10.4.5) and a 12" 1.25GHz iBook G4 with 1.25GB Ram. I know those stats really don't make a difference, except for maybe the OS, but just in case anyone was wondering.

OS X :: Icons Missing In Finder / Apps And Video Icon Missing

Nov 30, 2010

Over the last few days I've noticed a problem with missing icons. It seems to mainly effect icons in the Trash but I have one or two missing icons for videos and apps within the Finder and on the Desktop. The icon is completely gone - I have to click on the filename to select it. Quicklook works OK (for video).

I can't think of anything I've installed that would have done it except Onyx, but I haven't run that in weeks. I did repair permissions a few days ago but I doubt that could break this. It persists after a reboot. I can't get it to happen on command, it just randomly occurs. Creating a New Folder always works OK.

OS X :: Mac Missing From Shared Sidebar?

Feb 13, 2010

My MBP and MacBook don't show up on my "SHARED" sidebar on my Mac Pro, which is running 10.5.8. But the Pro shows up on both laptops, and I can connect to it from both. The Pro shows a PC in the house when it's on, so it's working for that. But I can't get my Macs from it.

OS X Mavericks :: Mailboxes Missing From Sidebar?

Aug 26, 2014

I have added a new mailbox called archive in mail and selected "On My Mac". I was expecting that it would show up in my sidebar under "On My Mac", but nothing shows.

I tried recreating the mailbox and I get an error that it already exists. 

I am not syncing with iCloud so I know that is not the issue. 

How do I get "On My Mac" mailboxes to show in the app?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Left Sidebar On  Finder Not Showing?

Jun 27, 2012

I have an iMac - Mac OS X 10.6.8 

Out of the blue the sidebar on the left of the finder just disapeared. 

I searched and foud some fixes like deleting .plist file and clicking the oval button on the top right of finder, and nothing works. 

I know when I click on the oval it's suppos to appear, but it's not. The only thing that happens is that the top part hides and appears. I just want to get my finder the way it was. I actually have folders there for quick access and now it's gone.

Software :: Missing Little Round Eject Buttons In Leopard Sidebar

Dec 10, 2009

This is a strange one I can't seem to fix by deleting preferences or anything. On a ''normal'' Mac running Leopard or Snow Leopard, in the ''Shared'' part of the Finder sidebar, when you mount a drive a little round gray eject button appears beside it. On one single account on my Mac running Leopard 10.5.8 this strange thing happens where it does not appear--all of the other accounts work properly. How do I restore this? I've deleted the Finder preferences as well as the sidebar preferences, force relaunched Finder.

OS X :: Finder Icon Missing / Finder Became Invisible After Relauncing The Dock

Oct 1, 2009

Today I tried to change the finder icon in the dock. Because I'm cheap, I dont have candybar, so I tried to use liteicon. While this changed the finder icon in messages like "do you want to empty trash," it did not change it on the dock, even after logging out and relaunching the dock.

So I went into a bunch of core services and replaced all the finder .icns and .pngs with the one I wanted to use.When I relaunched the dock, the finder was invisible, but it still had the little blue "open" dot below where it was.I downloaded the candybar trial to try to fix it, but even candybar didn't get the icon back.

I'm using 10.5.8. Where are all the places the finder icon should be to show up?

MacBook :: Speaker On Right Side Louder Than On Left Side?

Jan 10, 2009

It's only today that I noticed my MacBook's right speaker is considerably louder than the one on the left. I opened Sound panel in System Preferences to see if the balance was off, but it was set at dead center. Then, I dragged the balance slider all the way to the left to see if the sound coming from the left speaker was okay at all. Well, it sure isn't. Very muffled, muddy sound. No highs at all. Dragging the slider to the right side reveals a very different sound texture. Very crisp, as it should be. Really weird. Anybody else experiencing this odd speaker behaviour?

I googled for this problem and found this thread, right here on Mac Forums. It's a thread for the MacBook Pros, though. The people with a MacBook Pro think it's because there's a subwoofer on the right side. Well, the MacBook doesn't have a subwoofer, so it can't be that. Any ideas? Is it repair time?

By the way, I have a late 2008 unibody MacBook, the 2,4GHz model.

OS X Yosemite :: Finder Service Is Missing

Dec 1, 2014

In the keyboard option, I have enabled the Services "New Terminal at Folder" in "Files and Folders". It works pretty well after i reboot the mac, I can right click the folder, select Service and click "New Terminal at Folder"; however, after a while, i don't know when and what happened, that "Service" option is just gone. 

I check the keyboard option and that service option is still there. I tried killing the Finder or even the Dock, but none of these bring back the "Service" option in the context menu unless i reboot the machine. MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014) running Yosemite 10.10.1

I have seen a few videos about mastering and gave it a try myself. It can be done by clicking the master tab, then going to the Input 1-2 column setting and then clicking setting - mastering, etc.When I first did this a few weeks ago, there were many options such as hip hop mastering, electronic mastering, etc.Now, when I do so, I have different - much less enticing options and have no idea where the good ones went.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder PDF Services Missing After Upgrading

Feb 7, 2012

I used to have two finder services set up so that I could select a number of image documents and have it convert the images to a PDF, or that I could select a PDF and convert it to images. Since upgrading to Lion when it came out, these services have been gone! In the meantime I've set up these automator actions as applications that I can drop the input files onto, but I would really love to have my services back. (I just now fixed my "PDF Improver" service that I used to have, would it be the same in this case [ie moving the old service to /Library/PDF Services]?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Finder Icon Missing From Dock

Mar 18, 2012

I just got my computer reformatted, and lost all icon customization. I went to change them and did all successfully (most in Candybar), but the Finder has been a problem. I initially forgot how to do it, so some research said I could do it if I simply replaced the file in the System/Library/CoreServices/ (Finder.png) path with my own of the same name. I did, but it didn't take - still blue. So then I did it through Candybar and it just disappeared from the dock. I've tried reverting the Finder.png file and nothing, as well as restoring the original icon through Candybar.

I saw one answer about booting a clone, so I researched how to do that, and can't do it on my internal for some reason. I tried an external, but it said it'd have to wipe all files first, which I won't.I should add that an archive and install isn't an option - I JUST got this fixed by Apple yesterday since I had lost my install disks, so I certainly can't do it myself.

Software :: Finder Icon Missing From Dock / Replaced The .icns Files

Aug 18, 2010

I recently changed my Finder icon by replacing the .icns files in my CoreServices folder. The icon appears as it should in dialog boxes, but doesn't show up at all in the Dock. Instead there's just a blank space where it's supposed to be. It's still perfectly functional, but annoying. :-S

I've tried logging out/restarting, reseting the dock, deleting the dock plist, and creating a new user account (it's still missing on the new account). I'm running out of things to try, does anyone have a suggestion?

Software :: Unable To Eject External Driives In Leopard - Finder Prefrences Are Missing

Mar 13, 2008

I've been having a few problems with Leopard. The first problem is that I can no longer eject external drives or disk images. (I've tried relaunch finder dumping finder.plists and sidebarlists.plists, resetting PRAM, dumping various plists reinstalling the combo update etc. and nothing works).

Secondly I don't see disks on my desktop when I insert them and I have CD's and DVD's set to open finder for blank disks. I have no preferences option under finder. When I click the Finder tab there is no preferences listed there. It just has: About Finder, Secure Empty Trash faded out, Services, Hide Finder, Hide Others, Show All (faded out).

I realize I'm also missing the Empty Trash along with the Preferences. How do I get this back?

I got it solved thanks to DeltaMac. I just opened Onyx and went to OnyX/Parameters/Finder put a check in the box next to Show Preferences item and also Show Empty Trash item and logged out and back in again and both things show up now.If only I could solve the problem of not being able to eject disk images or external disks from the desktop.
