OS X V10.7 Lion :: Force Require Password Option - Not Allowing User To Disable It

May 2, 2012

Just curious if there is a way to not allow the user to change the "Require password" option (Security Prefs/General) in Lion (10.7.3). If I make the user managed by the server I could disable the pane, but I'd rather than do that in this case. Any way to do it with a standalone machine? I want to force the Require password option and not allow the user to disable it.

Software :: Hide / Disable Events In IPhoto

Dec 27, 2007

I recently upgraded to iPhoto '08 and, quite frankly, I think it's awful. Events make absolutely no sense�photos are hard to organize within them, it's difficult to find an event even after they're all organized, and every photo has to be in one�including random shots that really don't belong in to any grouping at all. I think I'll stick with folders. But, is there a way to hide/disable events in any way? The events menu is on the top of the left iPhoto column and it's automatically selected on occasion. New ones are also created every time I import. I used to be able to hide albums, but now I don't want to use events�how can I get rid of that?

OS X :: How To Disable The Dock Hiding Option

Feb 5, 2010

I'm the computer teacher at a school and I'm trying to lock down the computers somewhat so that the kids don't mess with settings. When they inevitably do, I waste time restoring them to normal so that other kids aren't confused.

I've used software like TinkerTool and Deeper to prevent modifications to the dock icons. The main accounts used by the students are parental controlled so that they can't access System Preferences. I turned Dock Hiding off in there. However, they can still click on the option area (the lines) in the dock and turn it back on there. I know it doesn't seem like too big a deal, but when the older kids do this and a 1st grader sits down, they get confused and have to ask for help. If a dozen ask for help, it wastes time in class.

So is there a way to disable the ability to have that option available? I'd actually like to get rid of of the Hide, Magnification, and Position options in that little menu.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disable The Finder Drag & Drop "flock" Animation?

Mar 25, 2012

this is a new feature in Lion, as stated here:[URL] Drag filesWhen you drag multiple files from one location to another, they flock together. An indicator also appears next to the cursor, telling you how many files you’re moving  

Is there a way to disable that? Im on 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 iMac with 8GB of ram, and the seemingly small animation is driving me nuts.

I do a lot of dragging and dropping of groups of files onto scripts - photoshop scripts. and when i do that, you have to wait for the half a second or so for the little animation to happen.

OS X :: Unable To Disable Trackpad Option / Not Finding Settings

Sep 1, 2009

I have a Bluetooth mouse that I use with my MacBook Pro.

In Tiger & Leopard, I was able to set my Mac so that it disabled the trackpad from use when the Bluetooth mouse was connected. I just noticed that that setting has been undone and I can't seem to find the preference to set that setting.

Anything? Thoughts? This obviously isn't a crisis, I'm just curious if they've moved the preference someplace else... or something.

OS X :: Disable Natural Sorting In Finder?

Jul 31, 2009

Anyone know of a way to disable natural sorting in Finder? i.e., I want my files to be sorted like:

Instead of:

I realize that natural sort is more... natural for humans, but when I have thousands of files that are named like 1267b63a37_461 with random number of letters and digits it's impossible to find anything when they're sorted naturally.

Am the fresh recipient of a snazzy Magic Trackpad and I love the pinch-to-zoom in Finder. But I use the Option-click View --> Keep Arranged By option to auto-arrange my icons when pinch-zooming. Is there a quick way to apply this to ALL Finder windows/folders without doing it manually for all? I can't seem to apply the Keep Arranged By option to all my Finder folders, even if I check as the default?

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.

Dec 30, 2010

Option clicking a dock icon should minimize all windows of the given program. It works with all icons in the dock except Finder - its window(s) won't minimize. Is this behaviour normal? If so, why? Btw, if I right click the Finder icon in the dock, the menu item "Hide" is greyed out.

OS X :: Hide Specific Shares In "Shared" Finder Section

Aug 14, 2010

I know how to disable the displaying of all Bonjour shares using Finder's preferences but how would I go about hiding specific ones independently? I have a bunch of Windows computers and a couple printers on my network that show up and fill up my side bar. I want the few Macs on my network to always be there but it's a nuisance having all the other ones.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Hide Items When Login Is Not Working

Mar 13, 2012

In Snow Leaopard if I check the box against apps to Hide them whem logging in it worked fine... I login and the apps are running but not open (dot underneath). After upgrading to Lion this setting is ignored. Everytime I restart all the apps I chose to Hide open their windows and I have to manually click the red cross to hide them.  

For info, I have my computer do a scheduled restart every morning before I get to work. So I assume the checkbox to reopen windows when you login back in is checked as no one is there to uncheck it. BUT this should not be related, as the apps are marked to be hidden.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Hide Home Folders From WebDAV On Server?

Apr 3, 2012

I have set up Lion Server and so far it is doing everything that I want it to do. I have sucessfully connected to the Lion server from my iPad using webDAV. I can see the sharepoints that I have created just fine. What I want to do is hide home folders when connecting to Lion from the iPad. I know I can skip seeing the home folders by typing in the sharepoint name directly but I want users to access several different sharepoints when they hit the server.
