Software :: Shift Does Not Work During Quick User Account Change?
Jan 9, 2010
When returning to my login account (admin) after using "quick user account change" I am not able to use the Shift key to enter uppercase letters in my password. I must use Caps Lock to enter them (nothing happens if I type while holding the Shift key).
At all other times the shift work just fine.
This seems really strange.
Note: This is not a sticky key issue (brand new iMac).
I'm a multitasker, like many others out there. When I surf I like having many tabs open in my browser. My browser of choice is Firefox due to one single reason: Firefox allows quick switching between tabs using CMD + # (nr.). If I want to jump to the fifth tab in Firefox I simply press CMD + 5.
In Safari this key combination opens the fifth bookmark in my bookmark bar.
Question: Is there a way to "quick switch" between tabs in Safari other than CMD + SHIFT + ARROW LEFT/RIGHT (which gets stuck in text field etc.)?
Safari is otherwise quicker than Firefox on my Mac, so the decision to only run Safari would be obvious if it wasn't for this small thing.
I've a user who has been given a company shared MacBook Air. The account name was previously our company name, but I've sucessfully followed the guide [URL] to change this. Thus, the username is now now his firstname & lastname. The home folder is firstnamelastname. However, the old username (our company name) is still showing up as the username for some email recipients and airdrop.I'm guessing the email name might be saved localy on a few of the users contacts since he's been sending a few emails before the user name was updated. Can this be confirmed in any way?
I have renamed my home directory using the root then I restarted the computer. Then, I logged on with the same account that I have and I found that all the old folders have been moved to a new folder in the new directory under the old directory name.How to get back!I tried to rename it again by replacing the new name with the old name but it didn't work.. is there anyway to undo the change!! Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
iMac OS X 10.6.8. previously migrated account -- need to rename the account at the destination. Step 6 in the support page does not occur. I never get a chance to hit OK to this: 6. Click OK when "A folder in the Users folder already has the name 'account name'. Would you like to use that folder as the Home folder for this user account?" appears. Note: This will correct the ownership of all files in the Home folder, and avoid permissions issues with the contents. A red flag appears in the field that conflicts (either the short name or the full name). The name(s) cannot be changed! must cancel out.

I have a MacBook running OSX10.6. Someone else was using it the other day and now whenever I hit my Shift key, it changes the focus to either the task bar or the other open app(s). I have reset the keyboard settings in System Preferences, tried another keyboard and still have the same issue. I created a new user account and the Shift key functions properly in the new profile. where else to look to restore the normal behavior?
I use a few chat message programs on Mavericks but the Messages app is the only that doesn't use Shift+Enter for a new line and sends the half written message instead. Enter & Shift+Enter in messages does the same thing. Is there a way to change the keyboard shortcut so that Shift+Enter gives a newline instead of sending the message?
I'm in terrible, horrible situation about Command+Space shourtcut on my snow leopard system. I have to remove or change that shortcut but I could not any solution or way to do that. How can I remove r change that shortcut? or is it possible to disable or totally remove quick look tool from system (off course I don't know in that case that shortcut can be released).
I purchased a late 2009 13" Macbook with 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB ram as a present for my son in college. He had problems last year and the top case and motherboard were replaced in early 2011; Recently his battery would not hold a charge and his hard drive failed. I replaced both and added more ram to speed it up - now at 8 GB)The right shift key does not work. I have checked universal access; speech-to-text features are off; checked keyboard - English is chosen; checked keyboard, shift key is not assigned to any function;Left shift key does work. Right shift key does work on an attached Logitech wireless keyboard. The key seems to press down okay, just will not capitalize any letters.
I need to be able to change my IP address to watch my TV show on megavideo.. they ask me to wait 58 minutes every time I finish an episode of heroes. Is there a quick command I can just type in the terminal or another simple trick I can use?
I bought this new MacBook Pro a month ago. When I try logging into my guest account, it froze. I had no other alternative but to get out of it by pressing the power button. Then I tried open a new user account to see if it also has the same problem. Unfortunately it did have the same problem - froze after I logged in. I had done a harddisk check, there seemed to be no problem.

I used to be able to grab a portion of a web page or a document by pressing command shift 4. That no longer works for me, though command shift 3 does work.I can us the Grab app of course but that's a bit more cumbersome. Am using 10.9.3 on a late 2013 iMac.
I have just lost my user account that I normally use. It happened after I changed my name for my user account in the Finder. I clicked Get Info and changed the name from Helen Andersson to only Helen. and after that nothing is the same and i cant go back either that I know of. When I start the computer now everything that I had on my desktop and in my Itunes, Icalendar, addressbook, and Aperture are not there. I have found them (well at least what i had on my desktop and my itunes but not the other information), so they are still on the computer but I dont know how to get back to my normal user account.
When I check my System preferences Account I only have one account so its not like I made a new one and have two. But I can also see that the one I am using now that has nothing on it is made today.
So please if anyone can help me get my iMac to go back to the old user and all its settings the same way I would very much appreciate it. Because this user has nothing and I have to start everything from scratch even my internet settings I had to download again to be able to go on the internet. This user has nothing.
Up till now, all the family have been using just one user account on our iMac. (OK, I now know that's not a good idea!) I'm now going to be working from home so have set up a new user as Work. I've been using an IMAP mail service in Mail on the family user account and I've now set it up on the work account. If I delete the IMAP account from Mail in the family user account, will this delete my mail off the IMAP server so I cannot access it on the wrok user account?
Ever since I installed Lion I have had a problem opening attachments to emails which are videos. Most of them I can open with VLC and a few with WMV Player, but none with Quick Time. If they are on my iPad or iPhone I can open them with VLC and send them to others. If they are on my Macbook Air I cannot send them because the email goes without the attachment.
