OS X :: Removing Icon Text On Desktop?

Nov 28, 2009

I have just two icons on my desktop, like this. That's all very nice, but I'd rather there was no text under them and that they looked like this. I'm sure you'll agree that it looks much prettier, but of course it's a mockup. Can I do this for real without using the trick of renaming the drives to be *space* ?

IMac :: Removing Disk Icon From Desktop?

Aug 25, 2009

I'm trying to clean up my desktop and am getting annoyed by the disk icon. It's the CD icon for The Sims 3. If I try to move it, it creates a copy, and if I try to trash it, it ejects the disk, and I play the game enough that I don't want to have to be getting it out and in and out and in all the time, especially where I currently have my computer set up.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Removing Disk Drive Icon From Desktop But Leave It In Sidebar?

May 5, 2012

This should be easy but I can't seem to get it! 

My 3 year old keeps ejecting my drives because they exist as icons on the desktop. 

I'd like to remove those drive icons from my desktop but still show them as mounted in my finder sidebar.

OS X :: Removing ".ds Store" Icon On Desktop

Apr 16, 2009

How I made it appear there I dont know. I followed Mac's website advice on keeping the ".ds_store" files from being created again but am still left with an icon on the desktop. If I put it in the trash, it reappears, with a copy left in the trash. If I try to put it into something else, a message pops up saying it "cannot be replaced because it is invisible."

OS X :: Removing Text From File Names Using Terminal - Possible?

Nov 21, 2008

I need a way to quickly remove text from a load of file names. I have ripped my DVD TV show series to my Apple TV and transfered them, but I want to make all the file names simpler that what they are currently. Changing them all through FTP would take ages - so I am hoping there is some kind of recursive command I can use to eliminate a set bit of text from a group of folders.

IMac :: Removing WD Smartware From Desktop

Jan 29, 2010

Got a WD external drive for backup and the WD Smartware Icon is on my desktop and as I am not using the WD software I want to get it off my desktop but when I try to eject it or drag it to the trash it just goes right back to the desktop. If I drag it into the finder it just makes an alias and goes right back to the desktop. It showed up when I turned on the HD along with the MY BOOK icon. Turned off the HD but when I turned it back on same problem. There is an uninstaller for the software but as I have not installed the software it does not work.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Removing Symbol Of Speech Recognition Program From Desktop?

Jun 24, 2012

When I start parallels, the symbol of the voice recognition program appears on the desktop. I can't remove this symbol from the desktop. Doubleclick only moves the symbol from the desktop to the dock. I checked the system setup "speech" of my mac: "voice/speech recognition" and "voice over" are deactivated. So it seems that the setups of windows XP operating system and/or parallels (working tools) are causing this. How can I remove this symbol?

OS X :: Remove Icon Text Drop Shadow?

Sep 3, 2006

As the title suggests, I would like to remove the drop shadow plaguing the icon text on a white background.

This could easily be done with Windows but I'm struggling to find the OSX equivalent.

Coloured labels don't cut it as they don't apply to folder descriptions and don't come in white.

OS X Mavericks :: Invisible Text Hidden By Hard Return In Folder Icon

Jun 20, 2014

In some of my folders, the inside folders appear to be blank and have no text. When I click on the folder icon, the name of the folder is there, but there appears to be a hard return at the end of the text. When I delete the hard return, the text becomes visible. 

Rather than go to each folder and do this - why this is happening, and how to correct all the folders wherever they may be on any disk.

MacBook Pro :: Removing Underside Of MBP 17 - Pop Sound When Removing On Cover Normal?

Jun 30, 2010

as an extension to my question regarding RAM utilization, I've decided to upgrade my RAM. I went through the process of removing the underside of my MBP. After taking the screws out and mentally marking which slot they came out of (some are of different size), I pulled the lid up at the black trim area (the "neck" of the display mount) as this was the easiest way to get a non-damaging grip on the metal underside -- read: I avoided using a screw driver on the lid. As I started to lift, I was surprised at the amount of force I needed to use in order to remove the lid; something near the center of the cover was still holding the lid to the underside of the body. In fact, the amount of force I needed to use made me pause to question if I missed an important step other than simply removing the screws. I decided to "go for it" and applied more pressure while pulling the lid up and away from the body and heard a "pop" noise.

OS X :: How To Get Hdd Icon Off Desktop

Jun 13, 2010

When I first got my mac I clicked something (maybe in Disk Utility?) that makes the icon for my hard drive show up on my desktop. How do I get it to where it doesn't show up anymore?

Also, I have Picasa on here, but when I try to remove the icon from the desktop it says it will get rid of the application. Is there a way to get rid of the icon without uninstalling it?
