OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder Asking For Admin Password To Put Items In Trash

OS X Mountain Lion :: Stop Password Request When Moving Items To Trash

Dec 4, 2014

Initially, the trash container worked as expected: Items would go directly to the trash and stay there until I emptied it. 

I don't believe I did anything to cause what it does now but I don't like it: If I move something to to trash, I am prompted to enter my password (which I really don't like) and no items are held in the trash (what I used to call the recycling bin--which I kind of liked having). 

As for troubleshooting, I have changed the preference settings under "Finder" and nothing changes.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder Keeps Asking To Input Password Whenever Delete File To Trash

Jun 23, 2012

Suddenly Finder keeps asking me to input my password whenever I delete a file to the trash. Emptying the trash is fine, though.I thought maybe I had clicked an option in Onyx that caused this, but having looked several times, I can't see anything in Onyx that would cause this.I've tried repairing disk permissions using Disk Utility, with no effect.

Software :: OS X Need Admin Password To Move Files From Finder To Desktop?

Feb 18, 2010

I have two accounts a standard user account that I use all of the time and a separate admin account to use when I need to. Okay, so I just started my mac up and was creating some new folders and moving files from my user folder to my desktop (on my standard account). OS 10.5 comes up with a box asking for an admin password to make changes. It also does this when I try to move files to the trash. How do I fix this permissions error? (I've already tried repairing permissions and that didn't work)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Don't Items Put In The Trash Appear In The Trash

Mar 26, 2012

Sometimes items it put in the trash don't appear in the trash, although they are there.  This often happens when I manually delete podcasts from iTunes, or drag an item such as a PDF from my downloads folder to the trash.  The dock icon remains in it's "empty" state and bring up the trash finder window also shows that it is empty.  If I restart my MacBook however, the items appear in the trash and are able to be deleted.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Empty Trash Can Containing Items From External Drive

Apr 24, 2012

I did a disk repair and verify disk on my external hard drive. When they were done, it created a folder called "lost+found". I deleted it and it went to the trash. Now I can't delete it. I tried the option key, using terminal and secure empty. None worked. When I unplug the external drive, the trash is empty. I connected to another mac and it appeared in the trash there and I still can't delete it. I also tired using disk utility to delete free space and that didn't work. I called apple and they stated to format the drive but I don't have enough storage anywhere else to copy the data.

How do you delete individual items from Trash without emptying entire Trash? If I highlight one item in Trash, the only option is the Empty button. I'm afraid it will empty the whole thing. I don't want to do that.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Installer Won't Accept My Admin Password

Mar 11, 2012

For the past month or so, any time I've tried to go through the process of installing an app that requires Installer to do the work, when it comes time to enter my admin password, nothing happens. The password box pops up, I enter the correct password (as when I enter an incorrect one it does its "incorrect password shake-thing") and, like always, the admin password box disappears. Normally at this point, the installer continues on to install the app, but instead it does absolutely nothing. I can click "Install" again to enter the password, but, again, nothing happens. I've tried changing my password, deleting preference files, doing a disk repair and permissions repair - nothing.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: See Number Of Items In A Folder Shown In Finder?

Jun 29, 2012

Is there a way to see the number of items in a folder shown in finder?

Seems to me that in earlier versions, if you had a folder with 100 items (e.g., photos) in a folder in a finder window, when you clicked on the folder, something like "100 Items" would appear at the bottom of the finder window. I don't see this now in Lion.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Terminal Command To Give Admin User Privileges In Finder?

Jun 29, 2012

Someone gave me a terminal command that allowed my OS X Admin user permission to make an application alias without having to enter my user password. I've since forgotten the command and wish to use it for a new admin user since my old admin has gremlins on a number of apps but new users are not troubled in same way. I can't beleive Apple would default to requiring a password to make/edit an alias but there you go the distrurbing trend towards their total control of my desktop advances… not to mention User SysPrefs leaking over from another user for keyboard shortcuts and sounds?
