OS X :: Unable To Hide All (Downloaded) Files Extensions

Feb 11, 2009

Anyway, is there any way to be able to hide all file extensions in OS X 10.4.11? I have the "Always show file extensions" check box *un*checked, but now, on downloaded files most of the time the extensions show. No major problem, I just like everything to be clear and not messed up with .ppt and .dmg.

OS X :: How To Hide All Extensions

Sep 30, 2007

I know I can go into each individual file and bring up the "get info" window, then click "hide extension" but I want to hide all extensions for all my files (including anything I download in the future). Is there a setting I can go into so that it will do this for me?

Software :: Downloaded File Disappears / Unable To Find Downloaded Files

Apr 28, 2010

About a month ago, a friend who had just purchased his first Mac emailed me and asked why his Dock DownLoad file disappeared. I had no idea why. He still hasn't been able to reestablish it.

Yesterday, I downloaded something and my Dock DownLoad file vanished. I have tried rebooting, using (useless) Help, Spotlight, Search, and several other things. NO JOY. NO DownLoad file.

1. Does anyone know where to find DownLoad or how to bring it back?

I have experienced several idiosyncrasies with Snow Leopard, but when I call Apple support, they are very nice, but haven't a clue as to why it's happening.

2. Another problem is that the Highlight gets anchored on something in Mail, Word, and some other Apps. When I click somewhere else, the whole area between the "anchor" and what I click on is lit up. Apple doesn't know what causes it. I have to go through multiple machinations to shake it loose. I don't know what it is that causes it or specifically how to "shake it loose". Neither does Apple.

3. When typing in Word or an editor, there are times when the type changes to UpperCase and won;t let go.

Another problem is that, at times, when I click on a file, it fills the screen. Apple is aware of this problem and is trying to find an answer. Nothing, to date.

Apple support can't tell me why the MacMail Inbox spinner disappeared or how to get it back.

There are times when I can't access the hidden Dock. After rebooting and trying other things, the Dock finally shows up but any additions that I have put on the Dock are no longer there.

When I put a DVD in the slot, for the first few seconds, it grinds but does smooth out.

I thought that SL was supposed to get rid of the "foibles". "What happened on the way to the Forum"?

Is anyone finding other SL idiosyncrasies? What are they?

If anyone can help with items 1., 2, and/or 3. I'd be grateful.

BTW, Apple says that items 2 and 3 MAY be caused by the wireless Magic Mouse and/or the wireless keyboard; however, when I use alternates, it still happens.

OS X :: How To Configure Leopard To Hide File Extensions

Dec 18, 2008

How do you configure Leopard so it automatically hides all file extensions? I've gone to Finder/Preference/Advanced and unchecked the 'show all file extensions' option, but it does nothing. To remove the file extensions, I literally have to go into each individual file. There has to be some way around this, but I'm new to OS X. As far as I can tell, extensions are showing for most (if not all) file types (e.g. avi, pdf, rtf, doc, docx, etc.).

OS X :: Split Files With Letter Extensions

Jan 14, 2011

I have a set of split files with letter extensions. They are named <filename>.iso.__a, <filename>.iso.__b, and so on. Additionally they continue on to <filename>.iso._aa to <filename>.iso._as. This further confuses me because a Mac will list the <filename>.iso.__a first but a PC will put the <filename>.iso._aa first so I am unsure which is the initial file. I haven't found software that will join them properly. Split and Concat stalls out at 4kb. MacHacha makes a full sized file but it won't mount. Stuffitexpander won't even try, and Ajoiner shades out all the files as they don't end in numbers. I also tried renaming all the files with numbers but this too failed.

OS X Server :: Unable To Use Calender Modules / Installing PHP Extensions

Jun 2, 2010

I have set our new XServe and have PHP running fine. However, I want to use the PHP calendar module/extension. This is a standard PHP module and can be found in the standard downloads from PHP.net. I tried to take the Linux approach of recompliling PHP with --enable-calendar however, this doesn't work as there is no compiler on the system.

Any ideas on how i can get the calander module to work? The only compiled versions of PHP I can find for the Mac don't include calendar.I'm Running OS X 10.4.7, PHP 4.4.1, Apache 1.3.33

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.

OS X :: How To Hide Invisible Files On Leopard 10.5.7

Jun 25, 2009

On Leopard 10.5.7, I had to unhide my invisible files for some job using the command:
#defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
#killall Finder

I am trying the reverse commands but the Finder still shows files what are supposed to be hidden.I tried:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool false
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles NO
followed by a killall Finder and even reboot.

I would like to avoid a re-install. Who can confirm a working solution as some in this forum suggest that the above reverse commands are no longer effective on Leopard?

Applications :: ITunes Duplicated Video Files And Hide Them

May 15, 2009

I tunes imported vid files that I had on my hd last year, now, I decided that I didn't want these in ITunes, so I deleted them from ITunes. I then burned all of these files to a DVD and then deleted them from my downloads folder where they were always kept. Today I noticed that deep within ITunes, there is a folder called ITunes music and in that folder there is a sub folder called movies, where I discovered duplicates of the vid files I had previously deleted from my downloads folder which were imported by ITunes last year. I didn't know this could happen in ITunes!

OS X :: How To Hide Files That Are Located Besides User/Username... In Terminal

Jul 13, 2009

I've been wondering, if there is a way to hide files that are not located in "User/Username/...." in Terminal?

The command I use to hide the files for example is: chflag hidden ~/Desktop/*

However, if I the file/folder I want to hide is not in 'User/Username..." I will not be able to hide it... So how do you change it so that you can hide the folders that are not located in "User/Username"?

Also, I've ran into a problem!

My "Username" that one that has an house icon is missing when I access it from Machintosh HD --> Users Folder.

I guessed that it was hidden somehow but not too long ago it was in the User folder... So I typed in "defaults write com.apple.finder ShowAllFiles True" and I found a bunch of weird files on my Desktop and my Machintosh HD... and I found the Username house icon... I do not know what I did in terminal that hid it.

OS X Mountain Lion :: Can't Hide Folders And Files That Are Usually Hidden

Sep 8, 2014

This past weekend I transferred my OS and apps to a newly installed SSD drive.

During the process I had to move some files around in order to get The OS and Apps on the SSD.

I used a technique that utilizes the Terminal and the chflags command.

My issue is now I can not hide the files and folders that are usually hidden.

I can't remember the exact method I used to unhide hidden folders and files. I can't even find a reference to it in my web browsers history.I have searched on the web for solutions along these lines: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -boolean FALSE ; killall Finderchflags hidden sudo chflags hidden 

But none of these approaches have worked. I have downloaded Onyx, TinkerTool and Show Hide Invisible Files.

I have used them as best I understand to hide the normally hidden files and folders, but nothing has worked.
