Software :: Automatically Open Finder Window For USB?

Aug 24, 2010

I've got this problem that I need to try and solve for a client at work. They've got us to design a sort of media player application in Flash that allows the user to select any of their project videos to watch.

Now, the problem. They want this application to be distributed on a USB stick. They also want the application to automatically run when the USB is plugged in. Now, on Windows machines, this is easy enough. My problem is that I have no idea how to do this on a Mac.

I'm aware that Macs don't have the same AutoRun capabilities as Windows does. What I'm wondering, in the absence of being able to run the application automatically, is it possible to have Finder automatically open up a new window to the directory where the app is stored? Or, better yet, is it possible for Finder to automatically open up some sort of customized window (similar to the ones that pop up when you run an installer package), that just provides a shortcut to the application?

Obviously I need the solution to be common across multiple computers (so any solution that involves changing system settings or the like isn't really useful for me).

Is what I'm trying to do even possible? My knowledge is limited on the matter. I'm actually a video editor. Don't ask me why I've been put in charge of doing this, because I'm sort of wondering that myself.

OS X :: Putting Folder In Dock To Be Opened In Finder?

Sep 15, 2009

Is there a way to put a folder in the Dock so that it just opens Finder instead of a stack? OS X won't let me drag it to the left side, nor can I find a option to make folders on the right open in Finder by default. I'm running Snow Leopard.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Window Automatically Jump To The Top When Move A File Out Of It

Jul 1, 2014

When I have a folder open, say downloads, in a list view, and I delete a file, the scroll bar will automatically jump to the top of the list. It's absolutely non-sensical. One of the most annoying things ever when your trying to organize a long list of files. Happens in 10.8.5 and in Mavericks on two separate computers. It's worse in 10.8.5 as sometimes it will glitch out and do it even when I am scrolling down the list. . Kind of thing that makes you want to switch to windows.  

How do I turn this off?

OS X :: Creating Link On Dock To Open Folder?

Sep 23, 2010

I know this question sounds obvious and there are a million threads on placing folders on the dock but my need is more specific:

I want to add a folder to the dock but when I click on that folder, I simply want it to open in finder. I don't want to click the folder and then view contents in in Grid or List view, I only want the finder to open with that folder's contents. Is this possible?

MacBook Pro :: Dashboard Won't Open From Dock Or Applications Folder?

May 29, 2012

I've poured over these boards in hopes to finding a solution as to why my dashboard won't open. It literally stopped working mid day, one day when I went to return to get a number off of my sticky note in my dashboard. I have tried posting the different lists from my preferences page, however, am unable to get the docments to actually drag to my desktop. I'm not sure if there are any other solutions, but was hoping to find a quick fix as opposed to traveling 2 hours to the nearest genius bar. Any help would be awesome!!

OS X :: Cannot Resize Window (Lower Part Located Below Dock)

May 11, 2009

The lower part of my iTunes window is hidden below the dock. I cannot move the window up further, at it already neighbors the menu bar.

Deleting iTunes Preferences out of the Library did not do me any good.

Feeling stupid, I ponder if there is an easy way of resetting the appearance?

OS X Mavericks :: How To Avoid Messages Going Automatically To Archive Folder In Apple Mail

Sep 1, 2014

I've been using Apple Mail (version 7.3 (1878.6)) on my MacBook Pro 13" (9,2) (MacOS 10.9.4) for years to integrate my GMail, university, and other e-mail accounts in the imap mode. Since some weeks, Mail is behaving odd: some messages are sent automatically to the archive folder. That's quite annoying, as I have to move them manually back to the inbox folder, and sometimes I mess some messages. I did not change any config in Apple Mail or my e-mails servers.

Intel Mac :: Why Does Finder Crash When Try And Open A Folder

Apr 7, 2012

Here's an interesting one for all you intelegent people out there.  

I have a 2011 iMac running Lion. I have a USB harddrive connected which stores digial versions of all my DVDs so that I can stream them to my AppleTV. Has no issues with it before now. A moment ago my Mac crashed and had to be restarted by holding down the button at the back (first time ever!!). When i turned the thing back on, the drive didn't mount so I went into disk utility and repaired the drive which resulted in it mounting.  

Here lies the problem, I can access files on my drive in every other folder but the Movies on. See the below video. [URL]

have I lost my 660gb+ collection of movies?

Software :: Mac Finder / Folder Windows Always Open The Same / Wrong Way

Apr 16, 2009

its frustrating me that my finder /folder windows always open the same/wrong way. (at least not how i want them to.) i want them to open in list view, with name column first-- and i want that column width x -- then size column next, width y -- etc but every time i open a new window that has yet to be told what to do, it always starts in icon view with no idea how wide i want the columns once i switch it to List. this is a big deal for me because i create a lot of new folders similarly, i'm amazed at how buggy icon-grids can be in osx i find when i have a folder window open a lot-- moving new icons in and out -- the grid suddenly moves and now the icons that've been sitting there for a while are now suddenly confused and out of the new grid.

the one NEW icon that reset the grid layout feels it's on the grid, but then i have to move all the others -- sometimes when i do this, the folder window FLIPS OUT and shoots the icon way off to the left, etc, throwing off my meticulously sized window and making me replace ALL the icons on the grid.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Crash When Opening Any Folder On Desktop

Sep 11, 2014

Finder crashes when using any option from the Go menu (or key combo) except Airdrop.

Once Finder window is open on Airdrop any navigation to home folder or any other folder using side bar causes Finder to crash.

Using Go To Folder causes crash, even on hidden folder like /var

Finder is OK when opening files on desktop

All other apps can browse file system and open/save OK

Google Drive is not present on system (this used to be an issue a long time a go that caused similar symptoms in other threads)

Drop Box is installed. But issue occurs even when dropbox is not running

Using spotlight to open applications still works normally.

Clicking the Finder icon in the Dock results in a non-functional blank window entitled "Window", all tool buttons are disabled.

Repeatedly opening the same folder over and over results in the message "The last time you open Finder, it unexpectedly quite while reopening windows. Do you want to try to reopen its windows again? If you choose not to reopen windows, you may have to open and position the windows yourself" Two options "Don't Reopen" and "Reopen". Both buttons have no effect except to dismiss the dialog.

Steps Taken to fix:

Booted into recovery mode and performed repair disk and Permissions - Finder Still Crashes

Removed finder preference files using terminal~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist 

Recent changes to system:iTunes 11.4 Installed with normal Software Update. 

Possible Cause of Problem

Found app in iTunes that has File Sharing enabled and has a shared folder. Curious as to what was in the folder i dragged it to my desktop and double clicked. Im not sure if iTunes would have had enough time to copy the contents of the folder before i tried to open the folder. Finder crashed. This was the first time it happened.

iPhone app in iTunes that I picked in was "Ubersense".
