OS X :: Shortcut For Automatically Resizing Windows To Fit Screen?

Dec 3, 2009

Is there a shortcut in Mac OS X that resizes two or more open windows automatically so that each window is shown on the screen simultaneously? For example, I want to have a safari window open and a word document open so that one half of the screen is showing safari and the other half is word. I know I can resize them manually but I was wondering if there is a shortcut or a third party utility that resizes any open windows to fit the entire screen? This would be useful, for example, with the new 27 inch iMacs where the wide screen can easily display three (or more) windows side by side utilizing the entire screen area; having them resized automatically would be more productive than having to resize them manually.

ITunes For Mac :: Automatically Add To Shortcut In Dropbox

Jun 25, 2014

I would like to be able to upload video files I make to iTunes on my computer at home so my family can watch them on our AppleTV.  Can I create a shortcut in Dropbox or Google Drive to the Automatically Add to iTunes folder on my computer at home and have it show up as a folder in the web app or remote folder on my computer here? I need a straightforward solution that I can easily talk my wife through.  Creating symlinks or using Automator to watch a folder in Dropbox and move them is outside the realm what I can have her do.

Windows On Mac :: Resizing BootCamp Partition - Snow Leapord & Windows 7

Feb 1, 2010

Basically, I created a BC partition for my W7, however, I only gave it 32gigs of space (I only wanted to use it for gaming).However, now I want to install Autodesk 3D Studio Max 2010 on W7, however I don't have enough space on my BC partition to do that...I've researched enough to know that I will need to use one of the following programs:I've read up on all the programs and done some research on them.
Ive noticed most people are having problems with all of these programs when trying to backup a W7 image whilst on Snow Leapord (Mac OS x 10.6, which I am running)I know that is the function of the 3 applications above... But to my knowledge... In theory - I should be able to just backup my W7 using a reliable backup program (Can someone recommend any?) and then delete the existing BootCamp partition, create a new one of 100gig and then just load up the backed up image for Windows 7...

OS X :: Dock And Windows Resizing

Sep 6, 2010

I am trying to get rid of a dock annoyance:

1. Put your dock on the bottom of the desktop, in auto-hide mode.
2. Open an app, say Safari.
3. Resize the window in order to get to the bottom of the screen.
4. Hide it (cmd H).
5. Restore it (alt tab).
6. Now the window has been resized on its bottom border by a few pixels (because of the dock position).

How do I avoid that ? I'd like to use all my pixels.

Applications :: Resizing Of Windows In OSX PROCESS?

May 23, 2006

Well I just switched over to Macs on sunday with a new MacBook. Coming from Windows XP theres two things I miss and I want to know if there are any applications to chnage this:

1) In OS X you can only resize windows from the bottom right corner which gets kind of annoying. In Windows XP you can resize from any corner including the sides with that little black adjuster arrow, is there any program or any way I can naturally do something similiar in OS X?

2) I want my Dock to be more like the Start Bar in Windows XP. Meaning that I want all my programs to stop at the Dock on the bottom. Some program automatically stop at the Dock and can't be pulled down behind the Dock, such as iPhoto. Other programs however, such as iTunes, can be pulled down behind the dock and I don't like that. Is there any way I can naturally change this or any application I can download?

OS X :: Resizing Windows In OS X Takes Time?

Sep 7, 2008

IMNSHO resizing windows only from the bottom right corner sucks big time. I'd like to be able to resize windows from any corner or side.

I'm wondering if there is a 3rd party solution to resizing windows in OS X? Any software that can do this?

I know this has been discussed many times here, but I couldn't find any solution. Let's not argue this time, if this is really needed. This is just something that I want. I'd be happy to pay few $, if that's the only way to get it, but free/open solutions are what I'd prefer.

OS X :: Disable Resizing In Windows And Panels In Finder?

Aug 1, 2010

Someone used my computer here in the ofc during the weekend and resized the left panel really wide (i don't know why he did that). I tried to resize it back. It's the panel where you see the devices, shared, places, search for etc. When I reopen the window in finder the wide panel remains the same. I've been experimenting on how to put it back the way it used to but I couldn't get it back. Is there a way to disable window and panel resizing in mac osx so that this won't happen again?

Applications :: Photoshop CS4 Visual Corruption When Resizing Windows

Nov 12, 2008

So I just installed PS CS4 as downloaded from Adobe's website. When I resize a window, the gray area in the background becomes totally corrupt. Doesn't affect the document itself but it's distracting. I tried turning off OpenGL drawing in the Preferences but that didn't help. I've not seen any visual corruption anywhere else in OS X but wonder if it's a problem with the ATI 3870 at all. Never saw anything like this with CS2 or CS3. It is OpenGL drawing. It wasn't obvious I had to restart Photoshop for it to take effect.

Windows On Mac :: Resizing BootCamp Partition - Extend Volume

Aug 5, 2010

I am trying to resize the bootcamp partition on my iMac. I opted for the 32gb option when I first ran bootcamp but I wanted to add more. I read online I could do this my shrinking the Mac HDD and then creating a new partition FAT32. Then open up windows and open up disk management. Then right click my bootcamp hdd and click "extend volume." however, that option is greyed out. Am I missing something or is there some other technique?

MacBook Air :: Excel Office 2011- No Standard Toolbar And Resizing Windows

Dec 1, 2010

Two strange issues that I can't fix on my new MB Air 13 with MS Office for MAC 2011 and Excel.

1) I can't get the Standard Toolbar to show up when I open a new worksheet. I go to view, toolbars and then see that the Standard Toolbar is checked, but it doesn't show up. The only way to get it to show up is to do a series of steps:
- uncheck Standard Toolbar menu and go back out;
- go back in and check the Standard Toolbar and back to the spreadsheet
- the Standard Toolbar still doesn't show up;
- so then I click on the Layout tab on the ribbon and then it shows up!

2) I can't see the bottom of the window/spreadsheet - which means I can't resize the window. To resolve this, I have to do these steps:
- open system preferences and change my MBA screen resolution from 1440 x 900 down to 1280 x 800
- then go back to the spreadsheet, and resize the window (make it smaller on the screen)
- go back and resize the window back to 1440 x 900
- and then close the system preferences at this point, the Excel spreadsheet window is smaller and I can see/use the bottom of the screen to resize, etc.

Can't figure out what setting I have wrong or why I can't get Excel for Mac 2011 to work correctly on the MB Air screen.

Windows On Mac :: OS X Shortcut Keys On Windows

May 31, 2010

Switching between Windows/OS X is frustrating because of differing shortcut keys. Is there any good solution for using OS X shortcut keys on Windows?

Alt-Tab -> Cmd-Tab
Alt-F4 -> Cmd-Q
Ctrl-A/C/X/V/Z/F/etc -> Cmd-A/C/X/V/Z/F/etc

I'm thinking I could remap CTRL to CMD. I'd still like to at least have Cmd-Tab working for application switching though. I don't know of a way of remapping individual shortcuts; just individual keys...

Windows On Mac :: Resizing And Expanding Logical HFS+ Partition On Extended Partition

Jul 23, 2009

I am dual booting XP Pro and OS X on my NC10. I have XP Pro installed on the main partition with a FAT32 partition for files that can be read by both OSes (see attached image for two views of the partitions). I then installed OS X on an extended partition. Unfortunately, I had another 5GB partition also on that extended partition. I now want to delete the spare 5GB partition and non-destructively reallocate the space for the OS X partition - I want to expand it to be one big partition with my bootable OS X install still on it. Unfortunately, I can't find any way to do this in Partition Magic. Is it possible with GParted/BootItNG/iPartition or any similar software? If so, which and how? The NC10 has no CD drive so solutions that work from OS X or XP or a bootable USB stick would be preferred.

So I have noticed a few times already, that the screen on my white macbook flickers to change the brightness level. It can do this while the computer is plugged in and charging, or if it's off the charger. It is definitely noticeable as it causes me to just watch what the screen is doing.

OS X :: New Window Keyboard Shortcut Opens Two Windows?

Feb 10, 2010

So this is a new thing that started happening, and has got me stumped. When I hit Apple key+N in Safari, a new browser window will open, I will be switched to the Finder, and a new window in the Finder will open up. This new window in the Finder is the Computer window, the one listing the HD, the network icon, and any attached disks. It is not the same window I would get by hitting Apple+N while in the Finder. Only seems to do this while in Safari.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Invert My Screen Using Ctrl+Alt+Cmd+8 Shortcut

Jun 12, 2012

I checked Universal Access and the Zoom and VoiceOver features have shortcuts written next to themin bold black writing where as the shortcut next to Inverted Colours is greyed out. I have been using it for a year now and this is the first time it has greyed out and not letting me change the colours using the shortcut.I can still change it using the radio buttons in Universal Access but shortcut was much easier. I am using Snow Leapord on a 15.4 inch early 2011 model of Macbook Pro. I dont know if this has any relevance but the last time it worked was just before I updated the Blackberry Desktop Manager.

Info:MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
