OS X :: Dock And Windows Resizing

Sep 6, 2010

I am trying to get rid of a dock annoyance:

1. Put your dock on the bottom of the desktop, in auto-hide mode.
2. Open an app, say Safari.
3. Resize the window in order to get to the bottom of the screen.
4. Hide it (cmd H).
5. Restore it (alt tab).
6. Now the window has been resized on its bottom border by a few pixels (because of the dock position).

How do I avoid that ? I'd like to use all my pixels.

Windows On Mac :: Resizing BootCamp Partition - Snow Leapord & Windows 7

Feb 1, 2010

Basically, I created a BC partition for my W7, however, I only gave it 32gigs of space (I only wanted to use it for gaming).However, now I want to install Autodesk 3D Studio Max 2010 on W7, however I don't have enough space on my BC partition to do that...I've researched enough to know that I will need to use one of the following programs:I've read up on all the programs and done some research on them.
Ive noticed most people are having problems with all of these programs when trying to backup a W7 image whilst on Snow Leapord (Mac OS x 10.6, which I am running)I know that is the function of the 3 applications above... But to my knowledge... In theory - I should be able to just backup my W7 using a reliable backup program (Can someone recommend any?) and then delete the existing BootCamp partition, create a new one of 100gig and then just load up the backed up image for Windows 7...

Applications :: Resizing Of Windows In OSX PROCESS?

May 23, 2006

Well I just switched over to Macs on sunday with a new MacBook. Coming from Windows XP theres two things I miss and I want to know if there are any applications to chnage this:

1) In OS X you can only resize windows from the bottom right corner which gets kind of annoying. In Windows XP you can resize from any corner including the sides with that little black adjuster arrow, is there any program or any way I can naturally do something similiar in OS X?

2) I want my Dock to be more like the Start Bar in Windows XP. Meaning that I want all my programs to stop at the Dock on the bottom. Some program automatically stop at the Dock and can't be pulled down behind the Dock, such as iPhoto. Other programs however, such as iTunes, can be pulled down behind the dock and I don't like that. Is there any way I can naturally change this or any application I can download?

OS X :: Resizing Windows In OS X Takes Time?

Sep 7, 2008

IMNSHO resizing windows only from the bottom right corner sucks big time. I'd like to be able to resize windows from any corner or side.

I'm wondering if there is a 3rd party solution to resizing windows in OS X? Any software that can do this?

I know this has been discussed many times here, but I couldn't find any solution. Let's not argue this time, if this is really needed. This is just something that I want. I'd be happy to pay few $, if that's the only way to get it, but free/open solutions are what I'd prefer.

OS X :: Shortcut For Automatically Resizing Windows To Fit Screen?

Dec 3, 2009

Is there a shortcut in Mac OS X that resizes two or more open windows automatically so that each window is shown on the screen simultaneously? For example, I want to have a safari window open and a word document open so that one half of the screen is showing safari and the other half is word. I know I can resize them manually but I was wondering if there is a shortcut or a third party utility that resizes any open windows to fit the entire screen? This would be useful, for example, with the new 27 inch iMacs where the wide screen can easily display three (or more) windows side by side utilizing the entire screen area; having them resized automatically would be more productive than having to resize them manually.

OS X :: Disable Resizing In Windows And Panels In Finder?

Aug 1, 2010

Someone used my computer here in the ofc during the weekend and resized the left panel really wide (i don't know why he did that). I tried to resize it back. It's the panel where you see the devices, shared, places, search for etc. When I reopen the window in finder the wide panel remains the same. I've been experimenting on how to put it back the way it used to but I couldn't get it back. Is there a way to disable window and panel resizing in mac osx so that this won't happen again?

Applications :: Photoshop CS4 Visual Corruption When Resizing Windows

Nov 12, 2008

So I just installed PS CS4 as downloaded from Adobe's website. When I resize a window, the gray area in the background becomes totally corrupt. Doesn't affect the document itself but it's distracting. I tried turning off OpenGL drawing in the Preferences but that didn't help. I've not seen any visual corruption anywhere else in OS X but wonder if it's a problem with the ATI 3870 at all. Never saw anything like this with CS2 or CS3. It is OpenGL drawing. It wasn't obvious I had to restart Photoshop for it to take effect.

Windows On Mac :: Resizing BootCamp Partition - Extend Volume

Aug 5, 2010

I am trying to resize the bootcamp partition on my iMac. I opted for the 32gb option when I first ran bootcamp but I wanted to add more. I read online I could do this my shrinking the Mac HDD and then creating a new partition FAT32. Then open up windows and open up disk management. Then right click my bootcamp hdd and click "extend volume." however, that option is greyed out. Am I missing something or is there some other technique?

MacBook Air :: Excel Office 2011- No Standard Toolbar And Resizing Windows

Dec 1, 2010

Two strange issues that I can't fix on my new MB Air 13 with MS Office for MAC 2011 and Excel.

1) I can't get the Standard Toolbar to show up when I open a new worksheet. I go to view, toolbars and then see that the Standard Toolbar is checked, but it doesn't show up. The only way to get it to show up is to do a series of steps:
- uncheck Standard Toolbar menu and go back out;
- go back in and check the Standard Toolbar and back to the spreadsheet
- the Standard Toolbar still doesn't show up;
- so then I click on the Layout tab on the ribbon and then it shows up!

2) I can't see the bottom of the window/spreadsheet - which means I can't resize the window. To resolve this, I have to do these steps:
- open system preferences and change my MBA screen resolution from 1440 x 900 down to 1280 x 800
- then go back to the spreadsheet, and resize the window (make it smaller on the screen)
- go back and resize the window back to 1440 x 900
- and then close the system preferences at this point, the Excel spreadsheet window is smaller and I can see/use the bottom of the screen to resize, etc.

Can't figure out what setting I have wrong or why I can't get Excel for Mac 2011 to work correctly on the MB Air screen.

Windows On Mac :: Resizing And Expanding Logical HFS+ Partition On Extended Partition

Jul 23, 2009

I am dual booting XP Pro and OS X on my NC10. I have XP Pro installed on the main partition with a FAT32 partition for files that can be read by both OSes (see attached image for two views of the partitions). I then installed OS X on an extended partition. Unfortunately, I had another 5GB partition also on that extended partition. I now want to delete the spare 5GB partition and non-destructively reallocate the space for the OS X partition - I want to expand it to be one big partition with my bootable OS X install still on it. Unfortunately, I can't find any way to do this in Partition Magic. Is it possible with GParted/BootItNG/iPartition or any similar software? If so, which and how? The NC10 has no CD drive so solutions that work from OS X or XP or a bootable USB stick would be preferred.

i have a macbook pro on which i've installed windows xp, i made the mac and windows partition equal which was a mistake thinking will use them as much as one another, but it turned out to be that I'm barely or never using my windows on my mac, and I'm running out of space very quickly. I need to know how to make the windows partition smaller and the mac partition larger. I need an answer quickly because i've only got 4 Gb's left on my mac partition and 40 Gb's left on the windows one.

OS X :: All Open Windows In Dock?

Jul 1, 2008

I've had my macbook pro for about 2 months, after 4 years on a pc (and 4 years on an imac before that). I love my MBP, but one major gripe I do have is that when I have a lot of windows, especially when I have a lot of word documents open, they can be hidden behind the current window I have open, but not show up on the dock (only show up on dock if they are minimized). On windows, this wasn't a problem. So, is it possible to make it easier to switch between windows that aren't minimized? make those windows show up on the dock? I know about expose, and I use it a lot (especially the application and all windows features). I know about spaces too, but I still would like something more like I described above.

OS X :: Dock Shifts Windows To Side

Dec 13, 2010

I set the dock to appear on the left side of my screen with auto-hide turned on and magnification turned off. It's not at full size. I like to keep my windows maximized such that they take up the entire screen. What I've noticed, however, is that when I put the dock on the sides and open a window for any application (Safari, outlook, etc), it'll be shifted to the right just a little bit. This makes part of the desktop background visible, as the application window isn't covering the entire screen. I know it's not a big deal, but it kind of bugs me and I keep on moving the windows back to maximize the screen, but it keeps on shifting to the right. How do I prevent this? I thought it might be because the dock was too big, but really, it's not.

OS X :: Any Way To Set Dock Hiding When Windows Maximized?

Jul 13, 2010

I just switched to my first Mac. A MacBook Pro 13" base model. Right now I have the dock on the bottom of the screen and set to hide unless I mouse around the bottom of the screen. I like this so that I can have Firefox maximized to take up the whole screen. However, I would like to show the dock on the desktop when I don't have any windows maximized. Is there a way to set the dock to automatically hide when windows are maximized on the screen and then have the dock automatically show when there are no windows open or maximized?

OS X :: All Open Windows In Dock To Move From One To Other One With Single Click?

Nov 17, 2009

Do you know if there is any way to have all my open windows available in the dock to move from one to other one with a single click? Though I liked the Expos� per application feature, I would prefer having all my opened windows available in the same region they are minimized. On similar way, do you know if there is a way of having all the opened windows [instead of all the opened applications] available when doing COMMAND-TAB?

MacBook Pro :: Pixelated Tear In Dock When Reflecting Windows

Jul 4, 2012

I just got my MPB Retina and I'm loving it except for one tiny thing: I noticed that in the bottom corner of the dock when I have a window open you can see tiny pixelated tears from the reflection of the window. Here is a picture to show the tear: Here is a picture to show my dock with no windows open/tears:This could easily be a minor problem that Apple needs to fix with a software update, but I've been getting nervous with all of the problems people have been reporting about the screen.
