Way To Permanently Delete Unwanted Apps From ITunes
Apr 3, 2012
I've downloaded 100 Apps since getting my iPhone.†Of which, only 70 I've enabled to be sync'd to my iPhone. If updates are available for the other 30, iTunes downloads them even though I am not sync'ing them to my iPhone. Is there a way to permanently delete these unwanted Apps from my iTunes so that I am not spending time getting updates to Apps I am no longer intersted in?†
When I sync my ipod, it will sync and everything. My problem is, is I have old apps that I don't use still on my itunes. It's not syncing to my ipod because they are not checked but they are still on my app summary screen. How do I get rid of them?
I have a batch of HD video downloads in my iTunes Store queue that I can't delete. Before it was annoying, having to purchase both the regular video and HD video, then delete the unwanted HD download from my queue list, but now it's a problem. I can't empty the unwanted HD downloads, and for me to download them all will tie up my connection for a week or more.
I am in some sort of weird loop and cannot actually delete songs I purchased from the iTunes store.¬†
1. I purchased the song on my iPhone
2. It automatically got downloaded to my iTunes on my Mac
3. I decided I don't want the song - I hit delete - it asks me to confirm if I want to delete from iCloud as well - I say yes - it asks me if I want to move the file to the trash - I say yes - and it temporarily disappears
4. Next time I sync my phone, it shows up again. No way to delete it directly from phone.¬†
What's strange is shouldn't it delete it on my phone since I'm deleting it from iTunes before I sync?†
I am scared to buy new songs now as I don't want to be stuck with them forever in case I don't like them..
I bought a app thinking it was photoshop the for my Macbook Pro, but turns out it was a app that teaches you how to use Photoshop. I have no use for the app and wondering if i could get a refund for this app?
I have just updated to OS X10.7.3 and now each time I start up the following apps have been added to the Dock:¬†
Mission Control App Store Face Time¬†
I don't want them in the Dock and have to delete them every time I start or restart my iMac. I have checked in Prefs and they are not listed under startup so I am at a loss as how to stop them auto loading onto the Dock.¬†
How can I delete Apps and iBooks from iTunes so that do not constantly re-sync with iPad or iPhone even though I specifically un-check them NOT to sync?¬† I have to go thru this every time!¬† I don't even want them any longer on iTunes (or iPad) but I can't find a way to remove them from iTunes! Apple used to be so easy and intuitive but now so much is hidden/fixed).

Everytime I open iTunes there is automatic downloads waiting for apps that I no longer have of want. I delete them form the iTunes download screen but they come back everytime. How do I permently delete apps from iTunes, and/or my whole app history, form my account?
When we download new pictures in Windows and saved in a folder, we simply view it using Window Picture Viewer, scroll along and delete pictures we don't want. Easy and straight forward.
I did the same saving all new pictures in a folder. Then problem arrises:
1) When click the 1st picture to commence viewing, its not able to scroll to the next one. unlike Picture Viewer. So does it mean I have to open up individual pic, close, move cursor to next pic, open, delete unwanted pic, close, move cursor to next ....repeat....repeat.....one by one at a time. That is mind bogging absurd.
2) Then I use space bar and able to scroll forward. When reach the last pic of the row. it stop, Then I have to move cursor down and now scroll backwards. Seems very strange. Its kind of zig-zag manner. And after deleting pic, I have to start all over again instead of continuing from last pic. Again this is crazy.
I haven't really explore iphoto yet but don't tell me to use iphoto to do the job. That means I have to import photos from folder to iphoto and that is double job. Not forgetting there is no "cut and paste" function at right click mouse and that also means duplication.
Surely Mac is meant for graphics and there must be a much easier way than Window Picture Viewer, right?
It used to be that when I selected a message in my IN box and pressed "delete," the message would end up in TRASH. Now when I press "delete," nothing happens. The message stares back at me without blinking.
Should I choose an alternate route: Mail > Message > Move To > Trash, again nothing happens.
How can I force my machine to delete unwanted email messages? I'm running Mail.app 1.3.11 on OSX 10.3.9.
I'm trying to delete a bunch of unwanted files that take up a lot of space, and I'm finding this file that is 2 gigs, which labeled: private/var/vm/sleepimage, but I can't access the file or delete it. (I'm using a program called GrandPerspective which visually represents how memory is being used).
My sister has former eMail addresses which are no longer functional. They are NOT in the Address Book app. Yet one of them always comes up as the default. Yes, her current address is already in the Address Book app. I'd like some way to permanently delete her two non-functional addresses from system memory.¬†

I'm a recent mac converter. Hope someone can help me out.
Now in XP I was able to remove certain files from the trash bin. I never actually emptied the entire trash bin, but once in a while would delete the oldest files from the trash bin and keep the new ones.
Is this possible in OS X? I was only able to empty the entire trash bin, but not certain parts of it.
I recently reset the boot thingy, (with shift-control-r-p) and repaired disk permissions. now if I delete something it will ask "are you sure you want to delete XXX, this item will be deleted immediately, you cant undo this action"
google this and it seems more ppl are wanting this feature but I dont, how do I get it back my normal trash bin? I tried in Finder's preferences, didnt work.
