How can I put files into the trash without login every time?

Every time I want to put items in the trash, after dragging things to the basket, I have to sign in.  Why? Can I set the defaul to allow me to do so without login?

The procedure below will reset the permissions of a user's home folder in OS X 10.7.4 or later, including 10.8 or later. If you're running an earlier version of 10.7, update to the latest version first. This procedure should not be used under OS X versions older than 10.7.4.
Back up all data before you begin.
Step 1
Click the Finder icon in the Dock. A Finder window will open.
Step 2
Press the following key combinations, in the order given:
Command-3
Shift-command-H
Command-I (the letter "I" as in "Info.")
The Info window of your home folder will open.
Step 3
Click the lock icon in the lower right corner and authenticate with the name and login password of an administrator on the system. If you have only one user account, you are the administrator.
Step 4
In the Sharing & Permissions section of the window, verify that you have "Read & Write" privileges. If not, use the "+" and "-" buttons in the lower left corner to make the necessary changes.
Step 5
By default, the groups "staff" and "everyone" have "Read Only" privileges. With those settings, the files at the top level of your home folder will be readable by other local users. You can change the privileges to "No Access" if you wish, but then your Public and Drop Box folders will be inaccessible to others. Most likely, you don't need to change these settings.
Step 6
If there are entries in the Sharing & Permissions list for users or groups other than "me," "staff," and "everyone," delete them.
Step 7
Click the gear icon at the bottom of the Info window and select Apply to enclosed items... from the drop-down menu. Confirm. The operation may take several minutes to complete. When it does, close the Info window.

  • HT2729 How can I put songs into the album they came from but were split because of multiple artists on a tune?

    I need help in finding out home to combine songs from the same CD into one Album. When putting CD into the iMac, it auto loads into iTunes. If the artist is singing duet and the songs show more than one artist, it gets separated in iTunes. I want to combine all tracks together like they are on the CD.

    One way around this is to edit the album info for each song on that album and make the album artist 'various artists', or you can remove that duet artist and make all the artists the same.
    Seems to be a glitch or change with how iTunes sees albums now. THey alphabetize them by artist and, as you've noticed, if the artists are different, it sees them as different albums.
    I had many albums like this and spent a whole weekend editing the info to 'various' to clean it up.

  • How can I put quicklinks into the toolbar like in Internet Explorer

    In Internet Explorer you can Add Favorites to the toolbar - how can I do this in Firefox?

    Firefox has a bar for Bookmarks (equivalent of Favorites). To display the bar, you can right-click a blank area to the right of the tabs and turn on the Bookmarks Toolbar. This also is available from the following menus:
    orange Firefox button > Options > Bookmarks Toolbar ''or''<br>
    classic View menu > Toolbars > Bookmarks Toolbar
    Does that do what you need?

  • If I actually import full files into FCP, can I then drop source files into the trash?

    If I actually import full files into FCP, can I then drop source files into the trash?   I'm editing now and want to free up HD space.

    Just to confirm: in Preferences, Import, Files..."copy to library storage location" is selected.
    So I assume I can dispose of source files.
    Thanks for quick reply and also the the cautionary note. 
    This is low-level family footage I export to .mov and share on YouTube, so originals are not critical.

        We are sorry to have lost you as a valued customer ndl9! I'm sorry to hear of the difficulties you are having with trying to pay your final bill. Our best recommendation is the pay my bill link, which should allow you access based on your former phone number or account number. Did you try both? As an additional option, you can reach our automated system from an alternate line by dialing 800-922-0204 and then entering your former wireless number. http://vz.to/1fdEQVi

  • Can't put files into nested folders in dock

    Whenever I try to put a file into a folder I have in my dock, it will only let me put it in the first level of the folder. Ideally, I would want the folder to pop open and show the next level of folders so I can navigate through levels of nested folders to put the file in the exact place I want deep within my folder hierarchy. I know I can hold down Control on a folder in the dock to show my nested folders, but how can I drag files into those nested folders? I thought this was supposed to be automatic in Tiger. Please help.

    Yes- Easy!
    When you have your Creative Media Explorer open and your portable device connected, you will see your Zen V Series Media Explorer in the SOURCE window in the upper LH corner. Click on the "+" in front of the Zen V Series icon and it will display the list of folders on the device.
    Right click on the main folder for the category you want to put the sub folder in and you will get a drop down menu.
    Select "New folder" and you will get the "New Folder" box asking you what name you want for your new folder. It's that easy.

  • I have just used migration assistant to import photos (using an ethernet cable) from my PC. It has worked but they have gone into a new user on my MacPro. How can I merge them into the one user account.

    I have just used migration assistant to import photos (using an ethernet cable) from my PC. It has worked but they have gone into a new user on my MacPro. How can I merge them into the one user account.

    How many pictures (or how many bytes) are we talking?  Now that the pictures are imported one way to cross users is to use a removable drive (although large volumes of files preclude this).
    The other is to login as the user where the pictures are, then copy them into the public drop box of the user where you want the picture.
    The arrow is showing (in ths example) copy files from the Pictures folder for my user to the guest user accounts public dropbox.  When you do this you may have to authenticate and you won't be able to see the results of the copy until you log in as the other user.
    All users are in the folder "/Users/"

  • I have a G4 Quicksilver that no longer works, but the hd may still be good. How can I get files off the G4 hd and onto my new iMac?

    I have a G4 Quicksilver 2001 that no longer works, but the hd may still be good. How can I get files off the G4 hd and onto my new late 2013 iMac?

    Also, how do I boot the G4 into FireWire Target Disk mode?
    First, the G4 must be able to start to use FWTDM. If it can start, hold the t key at boot until you get a "screensaver pattern" that looks like this:
    If the G4 is attached via a FireWire cable to a newer Mac with a FireWire port, the G4's hard drive will appear on the other Mac's desktop just as if it were any external drive. A USB cable won't work for FWTDM.
    Just wondering if the drive in my G4, which I believe may be an ATA drive will also work in an enclosure for a SATA drive?
    No. ATA (actually "PATA" or "IDE") and SATA are different interfaces. PATA external enclosures are now very hard to find. You best and least expensive option is the adaptor that BDAqua linked. One of its connectors is for PATA drives.

  • Hi, I am user iPad and I do not know how can attach a file into email e.g. CV.  Thanks

    Hi,
    I am user iPad and I do not know how can attach a file into email e.g. CV. 
    Thanks

    You attach files within the app that creates the file or within the app that the file is saved. For example you email photos from within  the Photos App itself. Typically there will be an action icon within the app - an arrow icon many times - you tap on that to bring other options like Share - then Email.
    Attachments must be mailed within the apps themselves.

  • I can not move files to the trash.

    I can not move files to the trash. When I drag the file to the trash it does not move, but it does appear in the trash and when I empty it, the file is erased. When I go back to my files, the file I just deleted is still there. I keep getting the "startup disk is full" message so I need to delete files, but I can't. Anyone know a solution to this?

    try getting a external drive such as a usb flash drive or a hard drive to transfer the files from the startup disk, and free up space.
    hope this helps!

  • How can I put favicons on the bookmarks bar?

    I am used to seeing favicons next to my bookmarks--in fact, I have several that have favicons only (such as Google Reader, ESPN). Can this happen with Safari (Windows)? After favicons, seeing all text bookmarks on the bookmarks bar is so 2000s.
    Sorry if this is the wrong category; I didn't see a Windows Safari version forum.

    *How Can I Put Lyrics On The Songs In The iPod Touch?!
    Read the response by Jim VanLeeuwen, but I might add a few comments:
    (a) Lyrics on the Touch are only supported if you have firmware 2.0 or later.
    (b) If you auto-sync your iPod, the changes you make to your library will be copied over to the Touch on your next sync. But if you manually manage the Touch I believe that you will need to delete the revised songs from the Touch and drag the new copies over. Although you can add lyrics directly to the songs that are on the Touch (if you manually manage) it is better to edit your library and replace the updated songs on the Touch. That way in case your Touch ever gets corrupted and you have to delete everything, you won't lose the lyrics (or any other tag changes you made directly on the Touch).
