OS X :: Hide Mail.app At Boot?

Apr 18, 2009

I recently got MobileMe for the purpose of push email. However, it refuses to push my email to Mail.app if it is not either running and active or running and hidden (either way, the blue/white dot is under the icon).

So, for ease of use I figured that it must be started whenever I login. I added it to my Login Items under Account Preferences, and selected the "Hidden" checkbox because I don't want my inbox showing up whenever I login to my computer.

However, Mail.app still shows up whenever I sign on. I tried deselecting the checkbox and trying again, but the inbox would still come up.

Is there any way to prevent my Mail inbox from showing up whenever I login?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Hide "Recovery HD" And "Boot OS X" Partitions?

Apr 13, 2012

I have an external drive with two partitions, one to be used as a TM backup and the other will be a clone of internal HD. I want both to be encypted. I installed Lion on the clone partition, booted into it, and enabled filevault encryption. I then pointed TM to the TM partition, and enabled encryption with it also. I then rebooted into the internal HD. Once booted, it prompted me for passwords for the two external encyrpted partions, which I supplied and they mounted fine. However, also mounted were the "Recovery HD" and "Boot OS X" partitions. This is annoying. Too many disk icons on the desktop and finder sidebar to wade through.

Info:Mac OS X (10.7.3)

OS X :: How To Hide Folders

Feb 22, 2009

I'm pretty anal about the cleanliness of my documents folder, so I cannot stand having a folder called Adobe or Microsoft User Data in my docs folder.

I want to be able to hide those folders without adding a . before them (because then the apps won't be able to find the folders). Is there any way to do this? I know you can also change the permissions, but again, then the apps cant use the folders.

OS X :: Is It Possible To Hide Dock Completely

Dec 5, 2010

I wonder if it is possible to hide the Dock completely. If you go to Dock settings and hide it, it will appear when the cursor near its edge. What I want, is to hide it completely - dont want it to appear all of a sudden and interrupt me. I found the app Dock Gone, which hides the Dock and makes it accessible via a keyboard-shortcut. Thing is, it costs $14.95, and I just want the dock to disappear.

Is there a way to do this? A terminal command or something? I guess there must be - Dock Gone is doing it somehow.

OS X :: Why App Windows Hide And Behave Bad On A Mac

Jun 10, 2009

After owning a Mac for over a year I still don't get why application windows behave a real pain. There must be an explanation.

For example in Microsoft Word, i have 10 documents open. Here are the types of problems I have:

1) I'm in a document, then use CMD+TAB to go to another application then I use CMD+TAB to come back to Word, and bingo, it's sat at a different document to what was on top before I did any CMD+TABing.

2) I want to bring a particular open document to the foreground, so just like on the PC, I go to Window and select the document title, but NOPE it does not come to foreground.

3) I search around moving document windows around to find open document I want in the foreground and click it expecting that to bring it into foreground, but NOPE that does not happen.

OS X :: How To Remove/Hide Title Bar?

Oct 10, 2009

Does anyone know how to hide/remove the title bar (I believe that's what it's called, in other words the small gray bar with the close/minimize/maximize buttons on the top of every window in os x) of a window in 10.5? I've searched the internet and forums for the past hour and no luck.

My main problem is that I can't get chromify to look nice, but now that I've started thinking about it I realized that I never use the title bar; I just use command-w.

OS X :: Way To Hide Certain File Types?

Dec 21, 2009

As some/most photographers know, when editing a RAW image in Photoshop (probably other Adobe applications as well), Photoshop creates a .xmp sidecar file that contains the RAW converter settings and saves them in the original folder that the image exists in. In order to create a cleaner, easier to view finder window is it possible to hide certain file types in OSX? Such as hiding all files that have the extension .xmp?

OS X :: How To Hide Hidden Files

Aug 2, 2010

I was messing around in the Terminal and accessed root [sudo -s]

I assumed root access would end upon closing the terminal, but I guess not.

I can see all my hidden files (e.g., mach_kernal). How do I disable root and get back to not being able to see my hidden files?

I've learned my lesson - never mess around with things you don't understand.

Software :: Hide Applications Bug (still There)?

Aug 25, 2007

I have this bug. It is extremely intermittent, and apparently most people never notice it.

User "moot" mentioned it 2 1/2 years ago: Hide applications bug

Basically, I tried to Hide (cmd-m) an app, and at doesn't hide. But when I click on the app to go back to it, then it hides. After that, I can't get it to unhide. It usually requires a force-quit, with loss of unsaved files.

Has anybdy seen this behavior? Any clue about cause, or cure?

The only commonality I see with moot's system, is that we both use DragThing 5...

OS X :: Can Hide Specific Icons On The Desktop

Aug 27, 2010

I've got an external HD hooked up to my iMac and it has some software on there that brings up a CD icon on the desktop.

Is there a way to hide just that specific icon?

I know you can go to Finder and uncheck so that it doesn't show CD/DVD icons on the desktop...but that would mean anytime I pop in a CD it wouldn't show up and I don't want that, just want to hide the specific App icon.
