  • How do you get rid of "are you sure you want to empty the trash"

    how do you get rid of "are you sure you want to empty the trash"
    When I control click to empty the trash it always pop out the annoying message...
    is there any way?
    Thanks

    you mean at system preferences?
    No. Finder has its own preferences.
    I cannot find the finders advanced preferences
    Click the Finder icon in the dock, click "Finder" in the menu bar, then "Preferences", then the "Advanced" tab.

  • Is it possible to retrieve a deleted file that wasn't placed into the Trash can?

    I created a new Word document and was going to submit it to a Subversion repository using the Versions application.
    However I accidentally deleted it from within Versions. Versions did not place it into the Trash Can after deleting it, and as it was a new document it is not yet under version control and so cannot be retrieved from the repository.
    Is there anyway I might be able to retrive it?
    (I've asked the same question within the Versions Google support group but posting here while/if I get a response from there. Wondering if there are any OS X specific techniques/tools I can use if Versions doesn't provide the ability).

    Did you try to open this file in Word for editing and saved the modified file under the same name?
    If that is the case then you should always use Save as to save the file under a different name and in another folder.
    If that wasn't the case then you should have kept the file unless other (cleanup or anti-virus) software has removed the file because Firefox wouldn't remove files that weren't saved to temp folder.
    There are other things that need your attention.

  • HT1660 i have two independent itunes libraries on my computer right now. how do i consolidate them into one library? how do i get rid of duplicate files?

    i have two independent itunes libraries on my computer right now. how do i consolidate them into one library? how do i get rid of duplicate files?

    Hello rmunsey,
    Thank you for the question.  It sounds like you have two separate iTunes Libraries but would like to add the music from one to the other to have one consolidated library.
    If you know where the files are for each library, I recommend opening one iTunes Library in iTunes and importing the files from the other library using the following steps:
    Open iTunes
    From the File menu, choose one of the following choices:
    MacAdd to Library
    Windows
    Add File to Library
    Add Folder to Library
    Navigate to and select the file or folder that you want to add
    Adding music and other content to iTunes

    Next, you can search for duplicates:
    Choose View > Show Duplicate Items to show duplicate items (matches are based on the song name and artist). If you have multiple versions of the same song (for example, live and studio versions, or versions from different albums) you can hold the Alt or Option key (for Mac OS X) or the Shift key (for Windows) and choose View > Show Exact Duplicate Items. This will show only duplicate songs having the same name, artist, and album.
    How to find and remove duplicate items in your iTunes library
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2905
    This should help you identify the duplicates all at one time so that you can delete the extra versions of songs.
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    Best,
    Sheila M.

  • How do I get rid of "unreadable files" when I am importing from my camera?

    How do I get rid of "unreadable files" when I am importing from my camera?

    Are all images unreadable? What is the exact error message you are getting?
    If only a few images are unreadable, try to import not all photos at once, but in smaller batches, until you know, which photo it is that cannot be read. Import all photos that can be read and reformat your card in the camera to remove the unreadable files.
    But if all photos are unreadable, try, if Image Capture can read your card.
    Is it a new camera? Have you been able to import from that camera before?

  • I'm using 9.2.1.  Every time I open an album, I get a "face (the same one)" covering every picture. If I click on the picture, I can see the real picture.  How do I get rid of this "face" that covers all?

    I'm usingiPhoto 9.2.1.  Recently, everytime I open an album, I get a "face (the same one)" covering every picture. If I click on the picture, I can see the real picture.  How do I get rid of this "face" that covers all?

    Make a temporary backup of your library (if you don't already have a backup of it) and launch iPhoto with the Command +Option key held down and rebuild the library with options #1, 2, 3 and 6 selected.

  • How do I get rid of an app that has an automatic weekly charge

    How do I get rid of an app that that I don't want that I'm being charged for automatically each week?

    There are instructions on this page for managing and stopping auto-renewing subscriptions : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4098
    If you also want delete the app from your iPad (you will also need to stop the subscription, just deleting an app won't do that) : press and hold any of the apps and after a couple of seconds or so they should start to shake. Then press the 'x' in the left corner to delete the ones that you don't want, and when you've finished deleting press the home button so as to stop the shaking. If you don't get the 'x' on any of the apps that you've downloaded then check that Settings > General > Restrictions > Deleting Apps isn't set 'off'

  • How do i get rid of an album that I synced to my phone

    how do i get rid of an album that I synced to my phone

    Oh, sorry....
    OK, let's start over....
    Hook your iPhone up to the computer and select the device when it appears in iTunes. Go to the Photo tab, and deselect the album then re-sync.
    You also can delete each picture in the Album one by one by going into the Photos icon on your iPhone, Select the Albums option, select the Album, and then when the pictures display, select Edit. Then you have to tap on each picture to delete it. Time consuming....easier to sync it with the computer, but a way to get rid of them temporarily. You still have to change your i-device photo profile in iTunes or it will download again in the next sync.
    Cheers,

  • How do I get rid of bad email that starts with info @ they jam if opened

    Anybody know how to get rid of bad email that starts with info @ in the address bar? They jam the mail program if opened, now I have 25 that need to go! Help?

    You only need to post once. You have to have some patience. I posted this response in your other question as well.
    Don't open those emails, swipe across them in the preview window to bring up the red delete button and use that.
    If the mail app is frozen and you can't do anything in it, close it from the recents tray and reboot the iPad.
    From your home screen, double tap the home button and the recents tray will appear with all of your recent apps displayed at the bottom. Tap and hold down on any app icon until it begins to wiggle. Tap the minus sign in the upper left corner of the mail app icon. Tap the home button or anywhere above the task bar.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.

  • How do i get rid of my first apple id when i got the phone

    how do i get rid of my first apple id when i bought the phone

    I don't think this is the easiest way. Have you concidered creating a new account and just... ignoring the last one? If this idea is not to your liking, just simply ring up apple. From what I know, you cannot cancel and account, but, I think that apple might be able to.

    Another thing to try - Turn the iPad Off & then back ON.
    If that doesn't work:
    •  Log out of your iTunes store account.  Go to Settings > Store > Sign Out Then press the Home button.
    • Then press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously and don't release them when it brings up the Turn Off screen; keep holding them until the Apple logo appears.
    • After restart, the Waiting should be gone.

    How do I get rid of Maverick on my computer and revert to the previous operating system? This update has nearly ruined my iMac destroying its speed, efficiency and flexibility.

    If restoring to the previous state from backup isn't an option (hopefully it is), it may be easier to try to resolve what is causing problems. It's possible that some incompatible software you have installed is messing with the smooth running of your Mac.
    Can you describe more fully what problems you are experiencing? You could also run EtreCheck and post the contents of its report here - it may reveal the cause as there is some software 'out there' that is known to create problems: http://www.etresoft.com/etrecheck

    I did buy it from someone in Jordan. So they might have got it from KSA, or UAE, or it even might be the same rules in Jordan. I don't think the imessage works even, every time someone sends me a message from their ipad it says "Not delivered". Maybe I am wrong?
