OS X :: Clear History In Today Folder In Finder?

Jul 7, 2009

I am new to my Mac and want to know who to clear the history in my "Today" folder in Finder. To be clear, I don't want to remove the Today folder but just clear the contents of the applications that I have opened.

On a side note, I would also like to know how to set up finder so that the "Today" folder won't show that I have opened anything (rather then having to go back and remove the history after the fact).

OS X :: Clear Safari Address Bar History?

Mar 9, 2007

This is probably very simple, but how can I remove the history that resides in Safari's address bar?

I guess I could "reset Safari", but then I'd lose all my cookies, and I don't want to do that.

I already emptied the cache, cleared history, restarted Safari, even turned on Private Browsing. The darn address bar history is still there.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Automator Script To Create A "today's" /dated/ Folder?

Mar 28, 2012

i tried to see if anyone was able to create something like this and i think that the automator script that i got only created a folder with /todays/ date. what i am hoping for is a script that will /constantly/ update the name of the folder to todays date. the reason i need this is that if i have one of these in my documents folder it allows me to easily see /when/ the last successful backup occurred on my external drives. it is a really nice comfort to see this easily and know quickly that the backup was successful.

OS X :: Safe To Clear Downloads Folder?

Feb 4, 2010

Is it safe to clear my downloads folder? Basically, it has become very large (~20gb). I want to create some more space because my hard drive is partitioned. Basically, what I'm wondering is, if, for example someone sends me a song. I play the song through itunes. Doesn't the song then get copied into an iTunes folder? Assuming it does, does that mean there is a duplicate file in the downloads folder as in the iTunes folder? Otherwise, do I have to manually go through my downloads folder and decide whats needed and whats not?

Would clearing this folder change anything on my mac?

May 5, 2009

I have leopard on my macbook pro and restarted the whole operating system from scratch. Before doing this I copied all my data onto an external.

Oct 2, 2009

I hope this hasn't been covered elsewhere (I can't find it if it has).My problem is that the history setting although set to " Remove history items after one day " does not. I Have reset Safari 4.0.3 and it still doesn't delete the history. Applecare can't seem to solve the problem either. Please help, although this isn't a major problem it is very annoying. This was happening before SL and I was hoping SL upgrade may have fixed this but it hasn't.
