OS X :: Finder's Context Menu By Control Click Stopped Working?

Oct 3, 2009

Mac PowerBook Pro with OSX 10.5.8

Control click stopped working and does not give me a contextual menu in the finder or any other program (including Stickies or Word) anymore.

I tried resetting Keyboard & Mouse System Preferences to default. I looked for Finder preference, or Finder preference file (it used to be "com.apple.finder.plist" according to an old 2005 forums.Macrumors post) but i could not find one.

I just reinstalled Leopard a couple of weeks ago, and do not want to go thru that again if i can avoid it.

OS X Yosemite :: Mail Context Menu Not Working?

Nov 30, 2014

Since the installation of Yosemite, Mail context menus no longer work. Control-clicking on a hyperlink in a mail messages opens a context menu containing these items:

Selecting any of the first 3 has no effect. Just clicking on the hyperlink will switch to the browser (Safari) and open the link. Clicking on "Services" does display a list of Services, and "Open URL in Firefox" at least seems to work. However, "Open URLs in Safari Tabs" does not. This seems to indicate a possible disconnect between Mail and Safari in particular.

Software :: How To Create A Folder In Finder Via A Right-click Menu

May 4, 2010

I like to have Finder displaying as a list. It's nice. However, when I try to create a new folder, it puts it at the top-most directory displayed. Very irritating. If possible, I'd like to right-click on an already existing folder and create a folder there (instead of creating it at the top-most directory and then moving the darn thing into place, which seems overly complicated for the task that I'm trying to accomplish.) Is there a way to do this? What about left-clicking on a directory and then pressing some other keyboard/button combination and have a new folder created in there?

OS X :I Can't Click On Any Of The Menu Options And Expose Stops Working?

Jul 6, 2009

I'm on an older blackbook (2 years old? ca. summer 2007) running Leopard and I'm getting some weird behavior with Finder. When I right click on anything in the dock, i.e., to close a program, the dock locks up, I can't click on any of the menu options, Expose stops working and the alt+tab interface stops working, as if everything is frozen... This caused me to think that Finder was crashing, but then I discovered that when I went up to the menubar at the top, everything "unfroze." The dock went back to normal and was usable, expose works fine and the alt-tab interface works fine too.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Command & Delete Not Sending To Trash But Context Menu Works

Jul 5, 2012

my DELETE functionality within finder is not working consistently anymore.  I am only seeing this issue on my new MAC BOOK AIR (used for work and received just last week), and not on my macmini (that is also running Lion and I've had for a year). 

Basically, I am having problems deleting files using CMD + DELETE.  I hit this command and get the typically apple "ping" sound for a something that isn't working, however I can right click and hit MOVE TO TRASH and it goes immediately, which means it's definitely not a file permission/in-use/lockout issue. 

I feel like I did something stupid to cause this, but it only doesn't work occasionally.  I have noticed it moreso right after I open or have used a file, but while CMD+DEL doesn't work, the MOVE TO TRASH does, so i'm lost. 

extremely frustrated and I've been through my System Pref settings alot in case I turned something off.

OS X Server :: Finder Stopped Working When Forced Updater To Quit

Jun 19, 2007

Q. I stopped an update installer of some Apple software and the Finder, now crashes without showing the desktop. Only the Apple logo and a spinning Beachball which never disappears. I can start up in the Unix mode and also in the Windows mode. I have an Imac with Osx 10.4. I could reinstall the system but probably I will loose a lot of unique files and poto's. In the Unix mode I have removed the Installer file from the desktop but it didn't change the startup. I have little experience with Unix.

Software :: Apple Bluetooth Keyboard Stopped Working / Itunes Stopped Working

May 13, 2009

I installed 10.5.7 yesterday. Immediately after the installation was complete, my Apple bluetooth keyboard stopped working. Went into Bluetooth system settings, and it said that there was no bluetooth hardware found... (it's built into the machine!!)...

Also, every time I start iTunes, it gives some weird error about Adobe Flash player. I'm not at home now so I don't have the exact wording of the error with me, sorry...

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Context Menu Items Gone After Running "cleaner" Program?

Apr 12, 2012

So with the whole Flashback/Flashfake thing I paniced (stupid on my part) ran a virus program called VirusBarrier Express and ran CCleaner (again, stupid me). Hoping I would clear off unused or harmful files I apparently in the process messed up my context menu. Items that were previously in the context menu are now gone. I did as much reading about possible fixes as I could and this is where everything stands. 

Not every item in the image  below was at the botton of the context menu, but iPack certainly was as well as various other menu items that have since dissapeared. 

While searching the internet I came across a suggestion leading me to "library/Contextual Menu Items" and when I followed that directory for both my user and system I couldn't find a Contextual Menu Items folder. There wasn't any. I've had this "missing file/folder" problem before with preference files; just a side note. 

I created the folder manually and restarted with no change at all. 

Obviously I accidentally deleted something that shouldn't have been deleted. Is there any way to get back those missing items?

OS X :: Missing Services Menu From Finder / Service Says Its Building Menu

Sep 18, 2010

my "services" menu has disappeared as an option in finder. When I try to access it by right-clicking a finder item (folder or file), it's just plain missing. However if I look for it under the finder menu bar, the arrow beside service says 'building'. But I've been waiting for hours and it doesn't look like anything's happening.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Click Finder Icon On Dock ≠ New Finder Window?

May 22, 2012

Wasn't this an option previous to 10.7.4? It doesn't work now.When clicking the Finder icon in the Dock, a new Finder window would open? I know about Finder prefs - General - Always open folders in new window but this isn't what I mean.I'd have a Finder window open then want to copy/move something so I clicked on the Finder icon in the dock to get a new window.Every time I clicked the Dock icon, I'd get a new Finder window.

Hardware :: Mighty Mouse Not Working Fine / Right Click Acts As Left Click

Feb 12, 2007

I just bought a mighty mouse, happy as I was, plugged it in and started my ibook running OS X 10.3.9.I know the mighty mouse shouldn't have full functionality (as the software delivered with it is >10.4.2).The problem is that the right click doesn't work right. When I try to right click it sometimes takes the right click, sometimes takes it as a left click (which is extremely annoying in firefox or finder).

I have SteerMouse (I'm a windows/linux user too) installed but when I de�nstalled it the problem remained.
When I plugged the mighty mouse in my pc (at that time running windows) right click just worked.When using a cheap mouse (from pleomax) the right click on the ibook (with Steermouse installed) works all the time.

I find this al really confusing. Seems like it can't be the hardware because it works on windows, but it can't be the software because another mouse does work.

I noticed that when right clicking at the total right side near the "expose-button" (not a position my fingers lay naturally) right click works all the time. I don't hope this is normal?

Final Cut Pro X :: Use Move Library Control In File Menu?

Sep 12, 2014

I have foolishly allowed a Library to build up on my boot disk and wish  to move it to an external. 

I know I can shutdown FCP X and copy it across manually but I would like to use the "Move Library" control in the File Menu. 

For some reason it's greyed out in spite of me selecting the Library.
