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

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 History Of Finder And Quicktime From Terminal?
I am using Mac Leapord laptop. I want to write an apple script that will clear the history of "Finder" and "Quicktime".

If I know what are the files associated with history from terminal, I can just delete those files using apple script to clear them.

Where can I find history related to finder and quicktime in file system of Mac?

Keynote 09 :: Display Web Page Like Today In History
I have a keynote presentation that run automatically each day in my library. It would be great if a web site like Today in History could be displayed on a keynote page. I could paste it in, but that would require changing the paste each day. Is there a way to display the current web when keynote is first open each day. I know that you could have a hyperlink that would take you to the site, but then the keynote presentation will not continue automatically.

Mac Safari :: How To Clear URL History In 5
The issue I'm having with Safari 5 seems to be closely related to the issue discussed here:


I typed out the first two letters of an URL thinking that Safari would autocomplete the URL, but instead of hitting the arrow key to grab the rest of the URL I hit return too early and of course I get an error page [URL].

OS X :: Clear Safari Address Bar History?
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?
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?
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?

Applications :: Clearing The Safari History Folder?
I'm not sure if this was asked before but I couldn't find it in a search. I use Safari 4.0.3. When I clear the browser history, the folder library/caches/metadata/safari/history still has a log of the pages I visit. Is there anyway to clear this besides manually. Would clearing this folder change anything on my mac?

OS X :: Recovering ICal / Address Book And Mail History From Library Folder?
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. Although my time machine has a lot of information on it, the last time I backed up my computer was a good 20 days ago so I think that is useless. Anyways, I was wondering if there was any way to recover my ical calendars, address book contacts and mail inbox history from my library folder?

OS X :: History Setting Although Set To " Remove History Items After One Day " Does Not?
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.

OS X :: How To Customize The Folder Listing In The Finder
organize folders in finder in a custom order?

I am making folders for each lecture I have, the names of the folders are the dates of the lectures. Then each folder will have two empty word documents with the date as the name as well, one for the lecture and one for tutorial.

I would like to have it in order and stay that way, right now its all over the place, I've tried organizing by name, and last date modified and no luck.
