MacBook Pro :: If I Delete A User Account Does That Delete His Library?

Jul 12, 2009

I never use "User Accounts" on my MacBook. So I don't know much about them.

If I delete one User Account, will it delete that user's libraries, such as their music, movies, documents, etc?

Also, will it delete the programs that were installed under that user's account, but are accessible by all users?

So I bought a Logitech MX Revolution -- I can't get used to its feel. The G9 is so much nicer n the hand...

I had installed the control center software, configured it, used the mouse for half a day, wanted to cry.

So I'm about to return the mouse, but I can't remove the System Preferences applet and can't find any official uninstall mechanism.

Applications :: Two Versions Of Safari Installed - How To Delete Previous One

Sep 29, 2010

How do I go about deleting applications? I have two versions of Safari on my computer. Version 4.03 or something like that, and the new 5.02. I know I upgraded to the 5 when it came out and I had assumed I was running that since then. Turns out I've still been running 4, and was having an issue with the "New Tab" not working. Thats when I noticed I wasn't running 5. (if you follow me?)... I just redownloaded 5 b/c I thought it would overwrite the 4 version, but it didn't, now I have two Safari's and when I do a spot light search 2 show up as well with no indicator as to which is which. If it matters, I am running Snow Leopard with everything up to date (at least I think? considering I thought this was...)

MacBook Pro :: Should I Delete User Account After Migration

Apr 2, 2012

I migrated my old MacBook to my new MacBook Pro without changing the user accounts so now I have a user account on the MBP that I only used for a few days.  I'm trying to determine whether or not I need to keep that new user account.  I didnt put anything on it of substance (set a few bookmarks in Safari and downloaded a couple of free apps). I've read a few things online about issues people have after trying to delete user accounts.

MacBook Pro (13-inch Late 2011)

MacBook Pro :: Password Recovery For Second Gmail Account

Jul 4, 2012

I want to find my password for my second gmail account which I haven't used for a while, and I'd rather not change the password. (I keep forgetting passwords, and hate resetting them). how to find my password for the first gmail account (Finder>Utilities>Keychain>imap.gmail.com>enter email account name>select 'show password'>enter Mac user password). I was hoping that I could just change the first account name to the second under the imap.gmail.com entry, but when I do this, the password shown continues to be that of the first account, not the second.

MacBook :: Can't Delete Off A New Macbook Pro / Remove It?

Jan 13, 2011

I've got one old macbook pro (bought it new at the start of 2008), 15inch jobbie. I use it at the moment for everything; web browsing, downloading hideous amounts of music (for dj use), music production (ableton etc) and also djing off (native instruments traktor pro).
It's just not cutting it, the poor old thing is noticably slow when it comes to running traktor, i have to have the latency on the soundcard really high and run everything on the lowest quality imaginable. This still effects the sound quality, even though I've optimized it as much as possible.

So I'm getting a new macbook pro 15.4 i7. But i will be using it only for Ableton and also for djing with (Traktor). I want to wipe pretty much everything else off it, it's just not going to be needed. But I'm worried there's something important that i will wipe off it.

What is a big no-no to delete?

Applications :: Will Apple Mail Delete All Messages In My Gmail Account

Jul 21, 2010

I had a hotmail account and about a month ago apple mail deleted all my messages from the hotmail account, therefore I am unable to access any of them from anywhere else except my mac.

I learned that that was due to me leaving the box "remove copy from server after retrieving a message." Now I fixed that and moved to gmail, as I was able to upload all hotmail messages to my gmail account through tuhunderbird.

Since I am not a big fan of Thunderbird as it is giving me some password issues, today I set up the gmail imap (I think) accunt on my apple mail, but there is no box "remove copy from server after retrieving a message" for gmail in prefrences, just for hotmail.

Now I am scared, will apple mail delete all my messages from the gmail server, and if it will, how do I prevent it from doing so?

Applications :: IChat Account Won't Accept Password

Nov 29, 2008

I just set up an iChat account for the first time and it wont accept my password. Changed the password 3 times to confirm it matched and it still wont let me log on. I set up another account and it's the same thing with the password not being accepted. What's the deal? "The .Mac password you entered is not correct. If you forgot your password, you can reset at the .Mac website."
