OS X V10.7 Lion :: Show In Finder In Every App

Mar 30, 2012

I have this weird and annoying problem with "show in finder".I used at one point that "defaults write -g NSFileViewer string different.plist.than.finder" to try to change the default finder, it didnt work, so I just "defaults delete -g NSFileViewer". So this is out of the way, I have no NSFileViewer in any file whatsoever.Now, for the weird stuff. If I use "show in finder" from the dock, nothing happens(neither cmd-click, of course). If I use it in safari's download list, it OPENS the file. If I use it in iTunes, on media or apps, it WORKS properly, it shows the item in the finder. If I use it in Xcode on a file in my project, it just switches to that file(so, basically, it just opens it just like Safari).

I tried deleting the dock and finder plist files in Preferences, didnt work. If I login with a different account it works properly. I really dont want to delete the whole preferences folder. I REALLY dont xD.I'm really stuck here, since all apps try and open the file(except Dock that does nothing) but iTunes works properly.if I use "Reveal in finder" in Spotify, it also opens the file(it starts to play in iTunes).if I use "Reveal in finder" in Forklift it just opens it as well.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Show All Folders In Finder, Terminal Command

Apr 29, 2012

When using finder and browsing through folders, it will only show me a list of recent folders. I use Lion. If I want to see all the folders or open up a less recent folder, I have to click "show all" at the top right hand corner. It gets tedious when I'm dragging and dropping files to different folders when I have to constantly click "show all" just to see the folders I want. Is there a way to override this function through the terminal? Is there a command I can use?

So, basically, ever since Lion, my external harddrive has had trouble being found while using the USB slot in the Airport Extreme.

I have one user account with small (say 9pt) Sidebar items in the custom list of Folders/Places. That user was migrated from Leopard but I do not recall if it came over like that or I set it up.

OS X :: Installing Preference Pane To All Users - Windows Freezes

Aug 8, 2010

I just did a fresh reinstall of 10.6 after my hard drive crashed on me last week. I'm reinstalling my preference panes, but am running into a problem. Whenever I try to install a preference pane for all users, it asking for my credentials as usual. Then the window becomes unresponsive and starts to pinwheel. When you check the dock, System Preferences is listed as "Not Responding". I've let it sit there for five or so minutes and nothing changes. If the preference panes comes with an installer (like iStat Menus) I have no issues.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change White Default Color Of Finder Windows In Column And List Views?

Jun 27, 2012

Is there (or will there ever be) any way to change the white default color of finder windows in column and list views? Or is there a 3rd party app? You can change them in icon view but that's the only view I never use. My eyes get so tired staring at white all day. If I could make all my windows dark grey I could work longer, better, happier. Would also love to make the Mail app dark.

Hardware :: WD 1TB Does Not Show Up Desktop/finder?

Feb 10, 2010

I have been using WD 1TB external USB hard disk for 4 months with my Macbook with Tiger 10.4 on it. I have plugged in the disk after I purchased without any special formatting or anything, and it worked fine so far. It just took a while, about few minutes, for the Macbook to show it on the desktop every time I got it disconnected and connected again. However, this time, I can not see the disk on the desktop nor on the Finder no matter what. I have plugged it in and out several times, I have restarted the machine etc. Nothing works. The disk is quite empty and it works fine with the PC..no cable problem or and disk failure issue for sure. I can see the disk on the Disk Utility app, but I can neither verify nor mount it...

OS X :: Data Disc Not Show Up In Finder In MBP With 10.5?

Oct 28, 2009

Every time I burn a DVD (data disc) from the finder, it will show up fine in my two snow leopard Macs. When I try putting it in my MacBook Pro that has 10.5 (this is from my university), it will not show up in the finder. Then, it will spit the disc back out. I tried it in a few other MBPs with 10.5, and the same thing happens.
