OS X Yosemite :: Keep Menu Bar Visible In All Full Screen Apps?

Nov 30, 2014

Where is the system-level setting to ensure that, even when I maximize an application, the menu bar is still visible. I don't like having to move the mouse to see the battery life, wifi signal, date etc. I'm on Yosemite, if it matters. To be clear, I'm not looking for a workaround that will provide these various bits of information elsewhere. I want to know how to mandate the menu bar stay visible.

OS X Yosemite :: Title Bar In Full Screen Mode When Using Certain Apps

Dec 2, 2014

When using certain apps in fullscreen hovering the mouse over the top of the screen produces the menu bar, AND a title bar which is interfering with screen real estate. 

How do I remove it? 

The screenshot below is with a youtube video playing in fullscreen, and the menu bar popped down.

The title bar saying "Safari" and with the green button is the one I want removed. This title bar seems to pop down in Java and Flash apps, and it's particularly irritating when the pop-down steals screen real-estate (photoshop, bitwig, Flas-player, etc.). Ideally I would like to stop the menu bar from popping down as well but it doesn't seem possible.

Windows On Mac :: Brightness Jumps To Full When Doing A Full Screen Apps

Jan 20, 2010

When I have my brightness at a certain setting and then start playing a game, the brightness jumps to full. When I then press the button for less brightness, it jumps immediately to the setting it was originally.

This also happens whenever I do alt+tab to return to the desktop. So it appears it happens when I do something that requires to switch to full screen mode cause it also happens with other programs.

At normal use, surfing, office,... this problem does not occur. And also it doesn't happen under OS X

OS X :: DVD App Dropping Full Screen When Using Other Apps?

Mar 27, 2009

Triple head system (a 2009 mac pro octo w/2 of the gt120 cards).

I put in a DVD and the dvd app starts automatically. So far so good.

Then I drag the movie window into another, empty screen. So far so good.

Then I make the movie window full-screen. So far so good.

Then I move my mouse back into a DIFFERENT screen and type something into the terminal APP.

At this point the dvd window reverts OUT of full screen. Even though I am not in that window, or interacting with that window in any way.

How do I make this incorrect behavior stop happening ?

MacBook Air :: Keeps Switching Between Desktop And Full Screen Apps By Itself

May 3, 2012

My 11" MacBook Air recently just started randomly switching from full screen apps back to the desktop by itself without me using the 4-fingered swipe to change desktops/apps. I've tried quitting (almost) every app and no matter what app is left open, it keeps sliding from the full screen app back to the desktop. I've rebooted the laptop a good three times and it's also been fully shut down and turned back on twice and it still keeps switching.

OS X Mavericks :: How To Use Spaces With Full Screen Apps And Windows Effectively

Aug 27, 2014

I've started to use Spaces to manage multiple full screen apps and windows but I'm having problems, especially with the Finder. It seems to make arbitrary choices when opening new windows, often placing new windows floating over fullscreen without switching spaces or opening them in other spaces underneath fullscreen apps so I can't find them. Sometimes it switches to a clean Space whist the window opens in a different Space altogether. I'm running Adobe software- CC '14 applications so I don't know if this causing the problems but most of the issues seem to be with the finder and apps that actually run fullscreenBP  

I'm running a MBP with an external monitor- it's a one monitor set up, not dual so it shouldn't be causing the issues I'm having. I like the idea of spaces running fullscreen apps and windows- the tech has a lot of potential but seems crude and irrational presently.

ITunes :: Folder Full Of Important Playlists No Longer Visible

May 25, 2012

To complicate matters, a few months ago I moved my entire iTunes library to an external hard drive, and that is not backed up by Time Machine.But, the folder was there after I moved all the files. It just recently seemed to disappear. Is there a way to recover the playlists from the files on my hard drive right now, or do I need to recover an older version from Time Machine Backup?How can I get all the playlists to return?

IMac (Intel) :: HDD No Longer Visible After Yosemite Update - Critical Error

Dec 2, 2014

I have a later 2012 iMac 27". The computer was running slow for the past week or so. I decided to update to Yosemite today. The installation stated it had a critical error and the downloaded file was corrupted. It asked to re-download the file, and then the iMac froze. It went to a gray screen without a restart. I forced the iMac to restart. After the restart, a progress bar with the Apple symbol would come up and then the iMac would shut down. I have attempted to restart using Internet Recovery; however, the OSX will not show a drive to install to. I did another Internet Recovery and had Disk Utility come up, but it only sees a partition with approximately 2 gigs of the 3 terabytes I actually have. It seems as if iMac is not properly mounting the drive. I have two questions.

1) Is there some way to have the bios remount the drive and
2) if 1 is not possible, is it possible to recover the data off the drive?

MacBook Pro :: Faint Mark Of Light Color On Black Screen / Nothing Visible When Screen Is Off

Jan 4, 2010

I have a problem with my screen - when there is something black on, I can see a faint mark of a lighter colour. I have tried to take a picture, please excuse the poor quality. There is nothing visible when the screen is off, even under close examination. Is it less visible when lighter things are on the screen, and invisible when the screen is white.

No drops or liquid spills. Will this go away on it's own? Any fixes?

OS X :: All Apps Crash When Clicking Anywhere On Menu Bar?

Jan 4, 2010

Can't figure out whats going wrong here. Installed SL when i came out, been fine up until a couple of days ago when I tried to resize my Bootcamp partition in disk utility. Not sure if I personally did something wrong or if it just failed while I was resizing, but it never finished. I was done with school and therefore Bootcamp so I've left it alone but ever since then I've been having weird problems with all of my other apps. When I click on the menu bar, whichever app is running crashes and I get the crash report. I popped in the SL disk and repaired the drive via disk utility but its still the same. It did say that one folder was modified and would not be repaired. I can run it again to find out if you think its important. So any ideas of what might be causing my menu bar to be bezerk? The only thread I was able to find was back with someone using Tiger who ultimately had to reinstall the OS.

OS X :: All Apps Crashes When Printing From File Menu

May 12, 2010

(MacBook with OSX v.10.6.3; HP LaserJet 3050). I had to reinstall the driver for my HP 3050 AIO printer when the fax and scanner functions failed. I downloaded the latest Snow Leopard driver for the printer from the apple site. Fax and scanner now work, but now I can only print (single copies) with the HP from any application when I use the "print" icon; but when I try file>print to print multiple copies or switch to another printer, the application crashes (Entourage, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Mail, Word for MAC, Excel for MAC, no matter).

OS X Yosemite :: Mail Context Menu Not Working?

Nov 30, 2014

Since the installation of Yosemite, Mail context menus no longer work. Control-clicking on a hyperlink in a mail messages opens a context menu containing these items:

Selecting any of the first 3 has no effect. Just clicking on the hyperlink will switch to the browser (Safari) and open the link. Clicking on "Services" does display a list of Services, and "Open URL in Firefox" at least seems to work. However, "Open URLs in Safari Tabs" does not. This seems to indicate a possible disconnect between Mail and Safari in particular.

OS X Yosemite :: Dark Menu Mode Won't Turn Off?

Dec 2, 2014

I have recently tried out the new Yosemite feature "dark menu bar and Dock" using a side add-on called Lights Out and thought it was cool, but was not of any better use so I removed the add-on and went back into "general settings" and unchecked the "dark menu bar and Dock" box. The problem lies in that it won't stay unchecked leaving my system in the dark. So my search the light has begun. I have only tried restarting my system as that is the only thing that I can think of to resolve the issue, but it did not work since the "use dark menu bar and Dock" is still checked and won't stay uncheck after closing the "system preferences" window. 

to why it is staying checked and how to force it to go back to light menu bar mode? It's only an inconvenience, but one that should not be.

OS X :: MacBook Sleep And Barely Visible Kernel Panic Screen?

May 22, 2009

Something weird has happened twice in the last week or so - I close my MacBook (black), open it later (I think both times I moved it somewhere), and when I re-open the screen is black and I have to restart using the power button.

What I noticed this time is that I could barely make out text on the screen, and although I couldn't read the whole thing, it was definitely a kernel panic "grey screen of death":

I'm wondering why this could be happening - both times it definitely had to do with closing and re-opening the laptop, and I'm wondering what the dimmed screen (I could barely make out the words) says about the issue.

MacBook Pro :: Randomly Black Screen / Cursor Visible / No Crash

Jun 26, 2014

My mid 2013 MBP, 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 with 16Gb 1600 Mhz DDR with a 500 GB SSD running Mavericks 10.9.3 has, since upgrade to Mavericks, developed a tick. It will occasionally and erratically (some days nothing, sometimes once a day, sometimes twice or more) go black with cursor arrow visible and responsive. (Responsive=it's visible and moves as expected in response to trackpad) The screen comes back after 30-40 seconds or so, but not in response to any keypress or mouse movement that I can detect a pattern for. It just sits there, while I hit escape, spacebar, shift, cmd-option-esc, cmd-option-tab, mouse around, whatever, then comes back. System is fine, don't even get the beach ball. So it's a minor annoyance, except when I'm presenting to a roomful of people who are waiting for my machine to wake up, and that 30 seconds can be FOREVER. Which has happened twice now. When I'm connected to an external screen via thunderbolt that screen is black as well. 

tried the fix of resetting SMC as well as Safe Mode boot to complete any unfinished OS updates. But the symptom is different, and those fixes haven't worked. I've never had a bad reboot, this condition just seems to pop up without apparent rhyme or reason. It's so infrequent and unpredictable that I despair how long it will take me to run bare and cycle through restoring background apps.

MacBook Pro :: Suddenly Pixels Visible With Black Outline On Screen

Aug 29, 2014

The last few days I've been experiencing a problem with my MBPr screen. I can "see" every pixel/pixel outline on the screen. It looks like I'm running a really low resolution but zoomed in. My screen has always been very clear and smooth, with no pixels visible. Is there something wrong with my screen/GPU? I can't be more specific, but I don't know how to explain it. It pretty much looks like the screen was put together by small building blocks. It is especially visible on white background. The pixels appear to have a black "outline".

OS X Yosemite :: Applescript Open Message Menu Items Greyed Out

Dec 12, 2014

When opening a Mail message with any sort of scripting, many of the menu items remain greyed out, including the one  that's important to me, 'Save Attachments...'. 

If I manually open the same message, the menu items are enabled. 

Try this script, by resetting the mailbox name to one of your own mailboxes, and you'll see what I mean. 

(I've lodged a bug report).
