OS X :: How Do I Remove A Shared Device From The Finder Sidebar

Mar 6, 2009

I've googled and search here, and I just can't find the answer to this.

I renamed one of my computers at home. Now both instances of it show up in the Shared section of the finder sidebar and I can't remove the old one. When I do a Get Info, it shows as a PC Server, but I can't actually access anything on it. Is there any way to keep this from showing up?

OS X Yosemite :: Clearing Duplicate Computers In Shared Finder Sidebar

Dec 8, 2014

In the Finder sidebar under shared computers, we seem to be getting duplicates.  Admin Mac (1), Admin Mac (2) (when it's the same computer).  How do I clear out this list so that we don't have 13 Admin Mac's on our list? 

I have gone through and turned off sharing preferences restarted computers and turned Sharing preferences back on.  I now see the correct computer but can't get rid of the duplicates now.

OS X :: Remove Old NetBIOS Name From Finder "Shared" List?

Dec 16, 2008

I'm trying to find ways to get rid of the Windows XP operating system as a means of sharing some data on the network and thought I'd try and experiment in Linux.

I installed OpenSuSE v11.0 and gave it the name, "mediasrv" as the NetBIOS name. Well, the experiment didn't succeed and I rebooted Windows off of the old drive and everything is just fine with the exception that the "mediasrv" NetBIOS name and the Windows XP NetBIOS name BOTH show up in the finder.

Yeah, I know it doesn't hurt anything it just drives me crazy. So, how do I remove the "mediasrv" name from showing up in the finder?

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 :: Bunch Of Shared Drives Or Folders Showed In My Finder Under Shared?

A couple of months ago I was at the head office and connected to the in house Wifi. When I did, a bunch of shared drives or folders showed in my finder under "Shared". I figured no biggie, when I got away from the head office they'd go away. But they didn't. And I can't figure out how to get rid of them.See attached photo.

OS X :: Finding Shared Computers In Sidebar - Not Shown

May 21, 2009

I saw all the other threads asking about how to get rid of misc. computers in the shared section in the sidebar. I'm wondering why a computer won't show up and am asking for other ideas since I've exhausted my own. I'm working with a Mac Pro, a Macbook and a Mac mini. The Mac Pro can see everything else, and the Mac Mini can see eveything else, but the Macbook does not see the Mac Pro (even though it does see the Mac mini). I need the Mac Pro to show up on the Macbook.

Here's what I've done:
updated all 3 to 10.5.7.
Repaired permissions.
Turned off firewalls.
Renamed the Macbook (as they were both called "xxxxxx's Computer").
File sharing is on, on all computers.
Tried "connect to server" to see if it would reinitialize a search for new shared computers.

Mac Pro :: 10.6.8 - How To Automatically Mount Shared Device On Network

Jul 1, 2014

How to automatically mount other Macs on the network, or if not, then post an explanation here on how to accomplish that objective? 

For example, my Mac Pro tower has 4 disks and when I boot up all 4 disks are mounted.  Then, when I turn on my Macbook Air and turn on my MacBook Pro, those laptops show up in Finder as shared.  The Macbook Pro is partitioned, so it would be nice if I could specify which disk to mount in Finder.
