ITunes For Mac :: Unable To Move IPhone Icons On Screen

Dec 2, 2014

Subject pretty much says it all. The Mac is a macBook with Yosemite. The iPhone is an iPhone6. When I plug the iPhone in, select the iPhone, select apps,

I see a list of apps located approximatly  in the middle of the screen, with the option to select remove or install. On the right the home screens are shown etc.

I'm unable to select an icon on any of these screens. When I click an icon and attempt to drag it, ITunes wants to move the entire home screen.

MacBook Pro :: Very Slow In Starting-up - Impossible To Move Any Icons Around Screen - Click - Drag

Feb 4, 2010

We've had a Macbook now for about 18 months - no problems. However, last night it was very slow in starting-up and then we found it impossible to move any icons around the screen (click+drag). We have just five small folders on the desktop.

Although 'hiding' is 'on', the dock has also disappeared completely and settings for the dock cannot be changed under preferences.

The Macbook won't turn off under 'shut-down', we have to shut-down by holding pressing 'on' button.

OS X :: Cannot Move Dock Icons?

Jan 8, 2009

New Mac owner...

I attempt to drag a dock icon to a new location on the dock, but it won't let me. The other icons don't separate so the icon will drop to the location I want. Randomly, items will separate when I hover over so I could drop the item between them, but only in that spot and no other locations. What am I missing here?

So, I'm unable to put the dock icons exactly where I want them. I've installed all updates.

Software :: Cannot Move Any Icons Or Folders And ITune Bug

Nov 22, 2009

About This Mac: Mac OS X Version 10.2.8, Memory 896 MB and Processor: 400 MHz PowerPC G4

MUST FIX: I CANNOT MOVE any icons or folders whatsoever (except to the Trash)! I checked the log too, but I have no idea what to look for there. This happened right about 1-2 days ago (11/20-22/2009).

BONUS FIX: As for iTunes, well it got bugged (clicked and didn't activated), so I deleted it and I don't know how to reinstall iTunes. This happened some years back, so I almost forgot about it.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: 2nd Monitor - Icons Move To Edge (sometimes)?

Apr 29, 2012

I have a 2nd monitor attached to my MBAir.  I have icons (folders, a few files, and some aliases - not a lot!!) positioned on both monitors.  I can work this way just fine for days.  (Yes, I do restart nightly and, yes, after a basic restart all the icons stay put.) But sometimes, out of the blue, something happens that causes all the icons on the 2nd monitor to line up on the border between the two screen displays (i.e., almost off the 2nd monitor but not quite completely onto the MBAir's display).   

This seems to be related to saving a file onto the desktop -- say, when I'm using Safari on the 2nd monitor and I drag the address bar address to save a webloc file.  However, I can do this more often than not with no odd effects.  (However, lately I've started dragging into a FOLDER on the desktop to avoid this.)  Now, I just watched it happen when all I did was save a tiny .TXT file to the desktop. Of course I can fix things by dragging everything back to where it was (plus, I typically do a Restart before that since I figure something has gone amiss with the system so I'd like to clean things out).  But what I'd really like is to figure out is why this is happening in the first place so that I can prevent it ... or, at least, so that I can stop doing whatever special behavior is causing it.

MacBook :: When I Move Screen Up Or Down A White Thin Line Flashes Across The Screen?

Mar 22, 2010

there are two things that the macbook is doing to me. one is that sometimes when i move the screen up or down (the hinge is rather stiff) a white (thin) line flashes across the screen. but recently, while randomly browsing through the internet, the screen almost... i guess faded to a gray screen, but like gradually, and not like a kernel error, like the display just faded away. happened twice in a row, did a battery pull and now wont do it again.

MacBook Pro :: Why Does Screen Go Black Every Time Move Mouse To The Lower-left Hand Corner Of The Screen

May 5, 2012

I've had my mac for about three years now and everything was working fine. After I installed lion, I notice that this started to happen. I don't lose any of my information though when it does that. It just goes into a sleep mode I guess? Anyways, is this a feature from the lion update? Something standard?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: No Longer Move Program Icons From Applications Folder To A Sub Folder

Jun 11, 2012

After installing Lion, I can no longer move program icons from my applications folder to a sub folder. When I do, it makes a copy and leave the original in the applications folder. When I then try to delete the icon in the applications folder it tells me it's required by the OS and won't let me delete. I'm forced to keep certan applications such as Time Machine and Stickies in the application folder.

OS X Mavericks :: Can't Drag Icons From Dock

Dec 2, 2014

I can't drag files out of stacks (Downloads or Application folders) or app icons off my dock. I reset my SMC when I rebooted and it worked but then I reboot the next day (today) and it won't work anymore. Do I really have to reset SMC every time I boot up? I recently downgraded from Yosemite because it is incomplete and full of bugs and now I have this issue.

OS X Mavericks :: Desktop Icons Are Randomly Blinking?

Jun 4, 2014

I just replaced the original 750GB drive on my MacBook Pro with a SanDisk SD6SB2M512G1022I SSD.  It's much faster, and I still have tons of open space.   

But every once in a while the desktop folder icons disappear and then reappear.  What could be causing this?  Is there something wrong with the drive?  Could the copying process have corrupted something in Mavericks?

OS X Mavericks :: App Store Toolbar Icons Grayed Out

Aug 24, 2014

In App Store Version 1.3, running under OS X 10.9.4, the past couple of days the toolbar icons across the top of the main window --

Featured, Top Charts, Categories, Purchases, Updates -- are all grayed out. So when I try to click on any one of them, nothing happens. 

I can select the corresponding pane by using the App Store's Store menu, and then the grayed-out icon for it shows a very light blue. 

Non-functioing of the toolbar icons is an annoyance. 

But why aren't the toolbar icons working and how do I get them back?
