OS X V10.7 Lion :: No Longer Move Program Icons From Applications Folder To A Sub Folder

Jun 11, 2012

After installing Lion, I can no longer move program icons from my applications folder to a sub folder. When I do, it makes a copy and leave the original in the applications folder. When I then try to delete the icon in the applications folder it tells me it's required by the OS and won't let me delete. I'm forced to keep certan applications such as Time Machine and Stickies in the application folder.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Create New Folder No Longer Automatically Selects Folder Name?

Apr 23, 2012

I must have done something to my installation of OS X. When I go to create a new folder, it automatically creates the folder with the name "untitled folder". The problem is, the name isn't selected. Normally, when you create a new folder, you can just type the name immediately. For me, I have to create the new folder, then click on the name to select the text and then type it. Also, when I do go to type in the new name, the text "untitled folder" doesn't disappear. I just type over it.

Applications :: Move "My Kindle Content" Folder From Documents Folder?

Jan 9, 2011

I recently downloaded Amazon's Kindle for my Mac and it automatically installed a content folder in my Documents folder along with my other folders. Now, I like to keep my Documents folder neatly organized and this My Kindle Content folder kind of messes things up a bit - I really don't like seeing this folder in my Documents folder. question: Does anyone know how to move this folder to another location? I've tried to browse the Kindle app, but I haven't found any obvious way to move it. However, I may have overlooked it. Also, I have tried to browse the Forums to see if someone else asked this question already - no luck yet. Has anyone out there had the same problem? If so, is there a way to move the My Kindle Content folder without messing things up?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Create A Smart Folder That Only Has Applications & Utilities In A Sub-folder

Mar 30, 2012

I would like to create a Smart folder that only has applications & utilities in a sub-folder. 

This will be similar to the default applications folder that shows in the dock, but without all the extra files & folders - just a list of applications. 

I can do this by esily by just having a smart folder of applications showing only type=application.

However, I would still like to have utilities in a sub-folder. 

If thats not possible, then it would be OK to have 2 seperate smart folders, 1 for apps excluding utilities & 1 for utilities only. 

Is there some way in the smart folder options i can exclude a sub directory?

OS X :: Move Applications Folder On Non Booting Volume?

Mar 28, 2010

I was wondering how I can move the Applications folder of my boot volume to another drive? The 'other' drive is an ExpressCard SSD as I want to take advantage of its speed. I used to run SL from it but I keep having this stupid problem. So the next best thing is to run frequently used files from the SSD in hope that it works fine. Btw, unfortunately I cannot simply create a symlink to my boot volume as I cannot remove the Applications folder from it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Move AppStore Stuff To User Application Folder

Jun 24, 2012

I have set up my mom with an older Macbook Pro of mine to save her from the evils of the PC. I set up two users, one for her and one for me; hers is uber simple (big icons, only the essentials in the doc) mine is crazy complicated. We share apps, of course, which was fine until I realized she is going to want to download Mah Jongg game apps and the like from the App Store, and I would LOVE it if I didn't have to have all that cluttering up the root Applications folder.I already tried to move one app from root to her user's Applications folder and all that moved was an alias, the app stayed at root. So how does one move these things? Is there a way via the finder? Can I use terminal.

Applications :: Move Some Tracks / Artists To Another Folder Using Itunes?

Jan 26, 2009

How can I Move some tracks/artists to another Folder using Itunes? I have read all about moving my entire itunes library to an external HD using the "consolidate library" function and I have read all about importing NEW tracks into a new folder by unchecking the "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library" box BUT I have not yet heard of a way to split an itunes library between an internal and external HD by moving certain artists/tracks from the default Itunes library folder to a new folder on my HD. If possible I would like to do this without losing my playlists/playcount/etc for the tracks that I would be moving. Does anyone have any suggestions? * The reason why I would like to do this is that my laptop's C drive is almost full. Therefore I need to free up some space by removing some music from it. BUT I would like to still have access to SOME of my music library when I am using the laptop away from the external HD (not connected to an external HD)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Doesn't The Original Document That Dragging And Dropping From One Folder To Another Move

May 13, 2012

Why doesn't the original document I'm dragging and dropping from one folder to another move? What's happening is the computer is creating a duplicte of the document and placing it in the new location with a new creation date.  The original document I wanted to drag and drop into a new location remains where it started as the "original" document and the new copy has this little arrow protruding up from the lower left of its icon. At first I thought it was an alias, but it's a copy of the document I thought I was dragging and dropping.

Applications :: Consolidate ITunes Library (Move Files To One Folder)

Dec 29, 2010

When you consolidate your itunes library does it actually move all your files to one folder or does it just make a copy or reference them? Because my itunes media is scattered throughout my computer and an external hard drive and I'd like to move it all to one spot.

OS X :: Changing Dock Background - Folder Icons And App Icons?

May 1, 2010

First off, I've searched the forums, but can't find an answer -- sorry if I missed something.Just got a new machine running 10.6.3 -- ugh, the dock and folders and so on look like clunky Windows junk :-(I miss my simple, elegant 10.4.11 dock ...I don't want to add novelty icons or that kind of thing, I just want a borderless dock that's semi-transparent or clear. And apparently all the apps out there to change the dock background don't work with Snow Leopard.I know CandyBar can help me with the folder icons and app icons, but as far as I can tell, not the actual dock background.

OS X Mountain Lion :: How To Create Application Folder In Home Folder

Aug 29, 2014

I'm using MacBook Pro Early 2011 model with Mountain Lion (10.8.5).

I recently noticed that there was an application folder in my home folder (the folder with your username), but that application folder had been empty. I remember I used to be able to access to my applications from that folder, but not anymore. 

Since the folder was empty, I deleted it before doing further research. 

After deleting the empty application folder from the home folder, I looked up and some said the application folder in the home folder and the application folder in Macintosh HD are two different folders. I don't know what it means, but I would like to have an application folder with applications in my home folder. Is this possible? or should I just make an Alias folder and put it in my home folder?

MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Access The Library Folder In The Home Folder?

Jun 9, 2012

It appears that the Library folder that is in the Home Folder (e.g./Users/Home/Liberary)has been made invisible in OS 10.7.x. However I have seen it because after converting samples Logic showed me the folder and its contents. I would very much like to move the samples from their present location in this folder on the startup disk to the EXS 24 samples folder  on the external RAID array that is dedicated to this purpose - - but I don't know how to make the Library folder visible.
