OS X :: White Arrow Showing Up On Desktop / When I Hit The Shift Key

Dec 3, 2009

Everytime I hit the shift key, a white, outlined arrow (with a drop shadow) shows up on the mid-upper right part of the desktop. If I hit shift twice, it stays there... if I hit capslock, nothing.

I looked in universal access, and nothing glared out... a google search didn't turn up anything (right away).can someone quickly clue me in as to what is causing this?

MacBook :: Removing Keys From New (space Bar - Arrow - Shift Button And 2 Others)?

Feb 15, 2009

Last night a friend of mine spilt a very small amount of soda onto my macbook. I immediately wiped it off and powered down the computer. Today, when I turned the computer back on, everything works fine, however, a few of the keys are sticky (the space bar, arrow keys, shift button, and 2 others). Is there anyway to remove these keys to try to clean them? This is the current generation Macbook.

Applications :: Quick Switch Between Tabs In Safari Not By Cmd+shift=arrow?

Jan 22, 2010

I'm a multitasker, like many others out there. When I surf I like having many tabs open in my browser. My browser of choice is Firefox due to one single reason: Firefox allows quick switching between tabs using CMD + # (nr.). If I want to jump to the fifth tab in Firefox I simply press CMD + 5.

In Safari this key combination opens the fifth bookmark in my bookmark bar.

Is there a way to "quick switch" between tabs in Safari other than CMD + SHIFT + ARROW LEFT/RIGHT (which gets stuck in text field etc.)?

Safari is otherwise quicker than Firefox on my Mac, so the decision to only run Safari would be obvious if it wasn't for this small thing.

Does anyone have a good solution out there?

OS X :: Items Showing Up In Desktop Folder But Not On The Desktop Itself?

Mar 9, 2009

This doesn't happen all the time, but frequently enough to create a thread about it to find out what's going on.

I usually keep my desktop empty and use it to store stuff I'm going to process in the next hour anyway.
Sometimes my desktop is absolutely empty, but when I navigate to the following path: UserDesktop, the files do show up.

PowerPC :: G4 Showing White Screen And Apple Logo

Jan 21, 2009

I have a Powerbook G4 with me and it doesn't boot up. I am suspecting it is hard disk/ software error that is stopping it from booting up. Here is what I see when I try to power it up: White screen, Apple logo with the round circle with rainbow color. Do you guys think that is is a software error that is stopping it from booting up? The last thing I did was to install Windows Messenger for Mac! I am thinking of trying to do a re-install using the disc that comes with my Powerbook purchase but I am at a lost of what to do. Can anyone please share with me the steps that I need to take? I've got a 'new' hard disk already, please advise on how can I rebuild my Powerbook!

IMac :: Dead Pixel Not Showing White Correctly

May 2, 2010

So as you can see, my new iMac has 1 dead pixel. How many does Apple require before you get it serviced? I don't have an Apple Store here, so I would have to pack it up, and it is somewhere where I would hardly notice it under most circumstances. I know it is only 1, literally 1 pixel that doesn't complete show white correctly, but all other colors.

OS X :: MacBook Screen Error - White Parts Showing Yellow

May 10, 2009

I have had this macbook pro now for about 3-4 months and last week it started showing weird yellow/white stripes on places where it should be completely white. It comes and goes from time to time and it seems to be effected by the hardware itself, since when I move my screen it comes and goes. But when I make a screenshot of an opened window, like iCal, with lots of white space, it does not show the yellow-like stripes. I tried adjusting the contrast at universal access but it didn't work.
