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...

Applications :: Hide / Show Images In Browsers?

Feb 28, 2009

I have the worst internet speeds on the planet(Stationed in Iraq) and I found that hiding images in FireFox allows me to browse faster. But every one in a while I wanna see the images and i can't seem to find a way to flip back and fourth quickly. Is there a browser or a hot key i can bind? I know Firefox has an "exceptions" website list but that does no good because it only lets me see the images on that one address, not for an entire domain.

Applications :: Can Hide Menu Bar On Contact List?

Mar 21, 2010

I've just been getting into Adium today for the first time and been customising everything but theres 2 things I can't figure out. I've been on Google for the past hour and I still can't find what I'm after.

First off can you hide the menu bar on your contact list? It looks horrible with some themes.

Secondly can you remove the service icons from your contact list? I hate having loads of MSN logos going down my desktop.

If anyone could help me on either of issues i will love you forever.

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 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 :: 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 :: 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.
