OS X V10.7 Lion :: Menu Bar No Longer Appears In Fullscreen Mode
Apr 17, 2012
For some reason today my menu bar no longer shows up when I move the mouse to the top of the screen in any application. I have tried restarting several times, opening and closing applications, taking apps in and out of full screen, ran disk utility.†All to no avail.†Not sure if this is related, but I attached an external drive and booted to the recovery volume on my mac to install Lion on the external drive. It hung at the download so I quit and rebooted to my main drive. Everything worked normally except for the menu bar.†Software up to date, 2008 MacBook Pro with no attachments.
when i turn on my mac it comes up with a gray apple logo, and then a loading bar comes up underneath, it stays like this for about 3mins and then logs in. once it has logged in i find it has taken my computer back a few days and is getting very annoying because i loose all the work i did before i turned it off.
Every time I open ITunes, it starts in a Full Screen mode - this it perfect! I don't know how I managed that. But more important: How can I get my other mac programs to do so (that has the full mode function) - a still not forget that they should open in fullscreen mode every time.
Having just bought my 1st imac and learning to the way it operates, I seem to have lost my stacks. Nothing I download appears on my menu bar anymore. (think I may have dropped it into the trash by mistake)
iDisk no longer appears on finder.†Need to back it up before end of the month. Cant seem to do it from the web application where I can still see idisk. I'd like to select all (including the folder structure) and drop it /copy it to a new location locally on a disk I can see on my imac finder for instance. iDisk we application lets me select all, I just cant drop it anywhere. iDisk had gotten turned off in the sidebar and could be turned on using finder > preferences > sidebar and clicking idisk.†When the transfer was made finder to finder all the files started coping over.
When I click my Apple Menu 10.9.4 there are no icons, nothing is listed. This is after a total system restore from Time Machine. Everything else is working. I deleted the finder prefs with no success.¬†

I'm running out of storage on my computer so I would really like to work off an external hard drive for my iMovie projects.¬† I've found a ton of videos showing how to do it in previous versions, but the button to select the hard drive no longer appears in the new version.

I think this is a recent problem, but it could be a problem that I have only noticed recently. This is on a 2011 MacBook Air.¬†
Whenever I switch back to the desktop from a fullscreen app there is a half second delay before the wallpaper appears.
When I use a three finger swipe out of the desktop, the wallpaper disappears immediately. When swiping between two fullscreen apps (mail and itunes, for example), you can basically see half of each app as you swipe, but this isn't the case with the desktop, it disappears to the patterned grey.
The menu bar does remain there, and when set to translucent always shows the background. I have tried this with a number of wallpapers including the default and solid colours.¬†
If this is unclear I can try to upload a screenshot.¬†
If this is common, then so be it, but for some reason I believe this worked differently. Searching came up with nothing but I may be searching for the wrong thing.
Everytime I am in a fullscreen application, like itunes or chrome, I can stay there for about 45-60seconds and then it brings me back to the desktop. It's fine when using iTunes or something but very annoying when I'm using photoediting software or music editing. By the look of what I've seen on the desktop when this happens it's like finder is switching on and off again every minute or so because the desktop goes blank and the menu bar goes blank where it says finder and such.

Recently when the iTunes application is active, I no longer have an iTunes menu bar, and the dock on my iMac does not appear. To switch applications I have to use command Tab and cannot change via the dock.

i can no longer see the song status when you see the song they are playing, when you can move forward/reward a song ang when you can play the next song.¬† the only thing i'm saying is the apple logo in the rectangle.¬†¬† how we can have this back ?¬†¬†
i have iTunes 11.3.1. (2)¬†
here what i'm saying, whatever i have a song¬† playing or not.
My menu wsuddenly no longer displys time and other things on the top right of the menu bar. I have gone in and reset time and even locked it but still does not display time and is then unlocked when I return to try again.
I have recently tried out the new Yosemite feature "dark menu bar and Dock" using a side add-on called Lights Out and thought it was cool, but was not of any better use so I removed the add-on and went back into "general settings" and unchecked the "dark menu bar and Dock" box. The problem lies in that it won't stay unchecked leaving my system in the dark. So my search the light has begun. I have only tried restarting my system as that is the only thing that I can think of to resolve the issue, but it did not work since the "use dark menu bar and Dock" is still checked and won't stay uncheck after closing the "system preferences" window.¬†
to why it is staying checked and how to force it to go back to light menu bar mode? It's only an inconvenience, but one that should not be.

It has been months now. I click on "download" after hours it gets it is ready to install. I do install. Everythings seems ok. Then I go back to my purchases and there it is OS X Lion¬†¬†¬† (Download)¬†
I can't update software because a message appears that I have to log with the same Apple ID that was used to purchase them: iMovie, Garage Band, iPhoto, but those apps came with OSX Lion.How can I get the "original" Apple ID?

It appears that for whatever reason, the kernel on my Mac is 32bit/i386, but the architecture is 64bit: Darwin system.local 11.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 11.3.0: Thu Jan 12 18:48:32 PST 2012; root:xnu-1699.24.23~1/RELEASE_I386 i386

Today when I turned on my MacBook Pro (Mid 2010 model) , the apple logo appeared† as normal, but then the spinning gear and a progress bar appeared under it.† Now everytime† in turn my computer on, this progress bar will appear, get to about the 2/3 mark and then the computer will abruptly turn off. I have read articles about this saying that I have to format my hard drive. I want to know if there is a way to fix this problem with out having to format my hard drive.
