Encrypting a USB jump drive / Quitting all open applications

Hi,
Two quick questions...
1) I want to password encrypt my USB jump drive so that I am the only one who can get to it's content. I know how to do this using Toast for a cd or dvd. Is it possible?
2) Is there a command to have all open applications quit?
Thanks,
Gary

  • How to quit all open applications/windows?

    I have had Leopard since Halloween. How can I quit/close all open windows/applications in one fell swoop rather than go through the Dock and quit/close each one separately?

    An easier way might be to do an Option , Command, Escape ... and force quit all the apps.
    At least you would know for sure what is open .... rather than relying on the semi invisible dock indicator ...
    Probably faster too ... unless there is some issue about force quitting that I'm not aware of ...
    You would want to quit all open apps on any software update, installation .. or when you're running something like Cocktail and cleaning your caches ....

    Yes, if it has the GUID Partition Map Scheme, but only by erasing it and choosing a new format.

  • Recording to a USB jump drive?

    Does anyone record to a USB jump drive? I was thinking of getting a 64 gig drive for this purpose and wondered if anyone had any experience with this. Thanks....

    Locate the music in the Finder and drag the song files to the drive. You may also be able to drag them to the drive directly from iTunes.

  • Quit all open dock applications at once?

    Is there a way to quit all open dock applications at once? I find it time-consuming to go in and quit applications I have used in the dock one at a time.
    May be I don't understand why they even stay open after I quit what I was doing with them? Is it possible to set it up that way? I find it is not very Mac-like
    to have to go in and quit 5 or 6 items in the dock one at a time. Can you please shed some light on this for me? Thank you for your time and patience.

    No, but there is an alternative.
    Press command+tab to show the application switcher. While keeping the command key held down, you can press q on a selected application to quit it. The only one you can't quit is the Finder (as this is the application that shows you your Desktop).

  • Will the lightning USB adapter work with regular USB jump drives?

    Will the lightning USB adapter work with regular USB jump drives?

    Not really.
    Technically, with some USB drives (I've had a 50% success rate) you can import photos or videos off the drive - thi those photos or video follow a very strict naming convention.
    But you cannot import anything but photos or video and there is zero support to write off the iPad to the flash drive....so while it technically may work, it's so limited to effectively not work.

  • Can the mac osxlion usb jump drive be used after as a external drive for storing media files

    can the mac osxlion usb jump drive be used after as a external drive for storing media files

    If you are talking about the Lion install USB thumb drive sold by Apple then no it can't. it has some specail formatting that makes it show up as a DVD drive and is securely locked from any changes.
    But I must ask why would you want to. That would destroy that drive and wipe out the Lion installer.
    USB thumb drive can be bought for $8.

  • Possible to use Autmator to quit all open apps?

    Is it possible to use Autmoator to quit all open apps?
    I'm looking for either a script, or a utility, that will quit all the apps I have open at one keystroke (apart from hitting the shutdown button)
    The "FunKeys" utility used to do this, but it's not compatible with Intel Macs.
    Any help greatly appreciated, thanks.

    You can use the following AppleScript in a "Run AppleScript" action and save it off as a Finder plug-in to give you a contextual menu.
    I have put in a test to prevent Script Editor from being quit. That could be removed if you need it to be.
    click here to open this script in your editor<pre style="font-family: 'Monaco', 'Courier New', Courier, monospace; overflow:auto; color: #222; background: #DDD; padding: 0.2em; font-size: 10px; width:400px">tell application "System Events"
    set theProcesses to name of application processes whose background only is false
    repeat with i from 1 to count of theProcesses
    set thisProcess to item i of theProcesses
    if (thisProcess is not equal to "Script Editor") and (thisProcess is not equal to "Finder") then
    my QuitProcess(thisProcess)
    end if
    end repeat
    end tell
    to QuitProcess(thisApplication)
    tell application thisApplication
    quit
    end tell
    end QuitProcess</pre>

  • How to set preference to "show all" open windows in all open applications (until I quit)

    how do I set preferences to "show all" windows in all open applications (until I quit the application) ?

    Can you explain more what the problem is and what you want to see.
    All windows are shown by default, unless you minimize them, so I'm confused at what you are asking.

  • Skype crashes every time I have my USB jump drive in?

    Whenever I have my USB jump drive in my computer, skype continues to crash no matter how many times I start it.
    When I take it out, skype works just fine. What is the problem? I never had this happening to me before. (I did clean install of Arch recently after messing up xorg on last one)

  • Format USB Jump Drive as Fat32

    I want to format a USB jump drive in Fat32 so that I can use it with a Archos 700 (a video recorder/player)
    I used Disk Utility to format the USB Jump Drive as MS-Dos File System but my Archos could not "see" the Jump Drive. I also noticed that the Jump Drive showed up as Fat16 via "get info" on my iMac.
    Any suggestions...?

    I'm guessing that DiskUtility automatically selects FAT16 or FAT32 depending on the
    capacity of the drive. I've formatted large (320GB) HDDs as "MS-DOS File System" --
    and they come out FAT32.
    The only thing I can suggest is using a Windoze machine -- or BootCamp/VMware.

  • SQLDEV 1.5.5: disconnecting from one db, quits all open editing windows

    Hi,
    i noticed that in SQL Developer 1.5.5 for Mac OS X, when i disconnect an open connection using the context menu, SQL developer quits all open editor windows even if they are open against different connections.
    The windows remain open only if there are unsaved changes and i am asked if i want to save the changes or cancel the operation.
    I believe this happened also on 1.5.4, although i could not verify it now.

    K,
    I understand exactly. When you are connected as a user and have a number of reports, worksheets and other editors open and then disconnect, the reports stay open (we have a preference to control this) and the worksheets stay open ( we have a preference to control this) , but everything else closes. That is because there is no preference and the default behavior is to close the editors. This is as designed. This is a feature that is not implemented and as such is an enhancement request and not a bug. It's still in 2.1 EA1, because we have not yet addressed it. There is no enhancement in our bug database for it. There is a bug that was addressed some years back to ensure that on disconnect the PL/SQL Editors are automatically closed.

  • View all open applications: workaround?

    It used to be I could hit a hotkey or a hot corner and see windows for all open applications and jump from one to the other.  It seems that's no longer possible.  Is there a workaround???

    Just posting to see your reply. There's a glitch in ASC software that hides the message sometimes until the next post and it's doing it now.
    EDIT: OK...good to hear.

  • What happens if i don't quit all my applications?

    I've heard it's necessary to quit every application before putting the computer to sleep of shutting it off.
    Is this true, and what happens if you don't?

    You don't have to. Nothing happens if you don't. It's much easier to go back to what you were doing before you put the Mac to sleep by not having to relaunch your apps.
    No harm done.
    It is best to quit all open apps before shutting your Mac down, but not sleep.
