So I started using my MacBook Pro as a device I connect to my TV. I have an HDMI adapter, and, after setting up the display and sound, it is awesome! I even purchased a Trackpad so I can sit on my couch and navigate. The cost of the adapter and Trackpad are more than paid for with my canceling of cable.
Anyway, my question is about the virtual keyboard in OS X. It doesn't happen often, but I sometimes have to type in a user name or password for sites. I know how to go through "System Preferences", "Universal Access", and then "Keyboard Preferences" to turn it on, but is there a faster way?
What I really want to know is if I can create a shortcut in my dock for the virtual keyboard?
If not, does anyone know of any third party, virtual keyboard applications that would work this way?

I'm currently running OSX 10.6.3 on a Macbook Pro and want to create a backup CD for Sims3.where the CD gets to the point that's it covered in scratches so I've generally created and run ISOs on the PC, but I'm not sure how to create a usable image on the Mac.
I am looking for a free online backup service to back up about 2Gb od files. I use Mozy on my MBP. But their free service is only for one computer. So I am looking for another company for my MacPro. I tried idrive but they seem to have problems.
I have a Macbook Pro 1.1 2GH with 1 processor Intel Core Duo and I want to upgrade my Operating system to Tiger and eventually beyond but it does not seem possible because of the the nature on the processor. Is there anything else I can do to upgrade or I am stick with what I have? I am currently running 10.4.11 before Tiger.
my work has recently switched from macs to p.cs anyhow they have recently posted some older macs and laptops in a free draw. my name came up against a 2002 white ibook g3, below are the specs as listed by my company:
my question is how/can i upgrade the o.s to a higher level (currently at osx 10.2) & what is the realistic o.s i can get to whilst still working to a realistic level.?? would i need more ram/memory?? its in pretty good nick generally and would be a shame not to make the best out of it.
i got my macbook about 2 years ago when my mum bought it for me for christmas. My mum, being a completle idiot when it comes to computers, did not realise that it doesnt have windows on or that i did not have a clue how to use a mac.
So i immediatly asked my dad computer genius friend to change the operating system to windows xp. This means that when i turn the computer on there is NOT an option to go on either mac or windows it is JUST windows.
Two years later a really regret my decision and was wondering if i somehow found out how to remove windows would my mac operating system still be there or would i have to re install it completly?
I just installed a new hard drive in my Macbook. I used the discs that came with the computer. I started the computer, went to the Disk Utility and created a partition named Macintosh HD. I made sure it was a GUID petition. When I restart to install the operating system I get a message "MAC OS x cannot be installed on this computer.
Info: MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5), discs that came mac do not work
So I have a Macbook Pro (15 inch, ~late 2011, 10.7.4) with a Windows 7 Boot Camp partition. I need to run a software for work that is only compatable with Snow Leopard, so I was thinking about trying to create an additional partition that has Snow Leopard, for a total of 3 partitions: Lion, Snow Leopard and Windows 7. However, when I went in to create the 3rd partition, I came across the following warning:This disk appears to be paritioned for Boot Camp. Changing the partition map may make this disk unbootable using Windows. I did a quick search online but didn't really get any clear cut answers on what could happen. Is what I want possible without wrecking my Windows partition?
I use Parallels to create a virtual PC running Windows 7. I have installed Office 2010 on the PC side and Office 2011 on the Mac. All VBA works fine on the PC side, but bombs on the Mac. It was my understanding (directly from Apple) that with the release of Office 2011 for the Mac that all code was now conforming with the PC version. This is probably true for new code written under Office 2010 (PC), however, most all of my applications have been developed over time through many versions of Windows based software (probably the last 10 years)…to date I have never had an issue with compatibility (on the Windows side). I have done some online research into the errors that I receive, however I am really an novice/intermediate programmer and am unable to find adequate solutions to the initial problems (as shown below).
Once I receive the run-time error 1004 I use the debug feature, etc. and end with "Can't find project or library. The initial error is probably just the beginning, but I am unable to go forward from this point.
I noticed that my Messages on youtube are instantly deleted when I comment on some peoples Youtube channels. I don't think its the person that owns the youtube channels doing it because it is deleted almost instantly after I log out. It's very odd and I don't think its youtube censoring my comment because I'm not cursing in the comment and I don't believe cursing is against the TOS on Youtube anyways.
Another thing I notice is that when I'm on a flash based chatroom that when someone I am talking to has left the chatroom it will still say they are in the chatroom until I click on my friendlist and than they turn red as if they are gone. It is very odd that I am noticing these strange bugs. However the chatroom thing could be a chatroom problem because it might do that on my Windows side which I never checked because I'm usually on that chatroom on my Mac side.
I did not have enough memory and I had already deleted some games in the past to do updates. Well I downloaded Windows XP Home about half a year ago and decided I really did not use it all that much. When I downloaded It i cut the memory in half (1/2 OS X and 1/2 Windows XP) So I went back to my Bootcamp installation papers to see how to properly uninstall Windows. So I did and everything seemed fine the only thing I thought was odd is that it only took like 3 seconds to uninstall so i knew it did not actually uninstall. I did not think much of it cause I could now download the update.
I have a MacBook; purchased in Oct. 2006. All has been working fine until yesterday. Safari suddenly shut down and when I tried to relaunch, the icon on the toolbar jumps a couple of times (teasing me as if he is going to launch) and then doesn't open. I did get it to "almost" launch a couple of times and it never opened my home page. It instead, within seconds, it shut down and I got the error message that the application suddenly quit but that my operating system wasn't affected, etc. All of my Office applications work fine but Safari will just not launch..
