You don't have to post the same question at one minute intervals.  Somebody will answer it, but perhaps not in 60 seconds.

  • HT201317 My photos are syncing from my iPhone, to the iCloud PhotoStream and to our iPad, but it is no longer syncing to my computer (Microsoft, not Apple).   Why would this happen and how can I get it resolved?

    My photos are syncing from my iPhone to the iCloud PhotoStream and to our iPad, but they are no longer syncing to our home computer (Microsoft operating system, not Apple).   Why would this happen and how can I get it resolved?  I have since tried to remove and reinstall the iCloud application in my computer's control panel.  I have verified that I am using the latest Apple operating system and the latest iTunes.  I have reset my photo stream.  Not sure what else to try...   I was also having an issue with my calendar where it would sync from my computer to my iPhone but not vice versa.  Somehow in all the resetting that's resolved, but the photo issue is not.   Again - photos are going into the photostream, but not wirelessly being put into the file on my computer.

    To change the iCloud ID on your device you have to go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, provide the password to turn off Find My iPhone when prompted, then sign back in with the ID you wish to use.

    Relax, they weren't converted to PDF.
    You can tell by right clicking ANY of them and choosing "Properties". You'll see there that they're STILL .xls or .xlsx files. The "association" has changed and Windows now indicates that they open with Reader, which isn't right.
    Where it says "Open With" under the General tab, you can click "Change" and re-select Excel as the default app to open thim.

  • I just got an ipad mini for christmas. charged it fully. was using it fine, then went to turn it back on and nothing is happening. i plugged it in and it doesn't even make a sound like it's charging. the screen is completely black. why would this happen?

    i got an ipad mini for christmas, charged fully. was using it..and it was fine.. went to turn it back on to use again and it's a blank screen. went to plug in and nothing seems to show it's charging or anything. why can this happen??

    Try resetting it.  Hold the on/off and home buttons together for about 10 seconds.  Hopefully you will see the Apple logo.
    If it's a brand new iPad Mini (with retina display), it is under warranty.  You can always take it to an Apple Store or Authorized Apple Service Center for service.

  • I recently saved my contacts in iCloud and now all of my contacts are on my daughters phone. I only wanted them saved to my PC. Why did this happen and how can I fix it? Is it because she downloaded the update to her phone?

    I recently saved my contacts in iCloud and now all of my contacts are on my daughters phone. I only wanted them saved to my PC. Why did this happen and how can I fix it? Is it because she downloaded the update to her phone?

    Your daughter must have signed into your iCloud account, perhaps when she updated her phone.  You can confirm this by going to Settings>iClloud on her phone and seeing if she is using the same iCloud ID.
    To fix this you would need to migrate her phone to a separate iCloud account.  To do this, start by saving any photo stream photos that she wishes to keep on your phone to her camera roll by opening her my photo stream album, tapping Select, tapping the photos, tapping the share icon (box with upware pointing arrow), then tapping Save to Camera Roll.
    Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account and provide the password when prompted to turn off Find My iPhone.  This only deletes the account from her phone, not from iCloud; it won't effect your device(s).  When you delete the account you will be asked if you want to keep or delete the iCloud data from her phone.  If she needs to migrate a copy of the data to her new account, choose Keep; otherwise, choose Delete.  Then sign back in with a separate Apple ID to create her new account and if migrating data to the new account, choose Merge when prompted.
    Once she is on a separate account, if she migrated a copy of the data to her new account you can go to icloud.com from your computer, sign into her new iCloud account and delete your data from her account.

  • I just downloaded iCloud on my PC and noticed that fewer than half of my photo stream photos have transferred over to my PC.  Why is this happening and how can I get the remaining photos?  All of my devices are charged and have perfect internet signals.

    I just downloaded iCloud on my PC and noticed that fewer than half of my photo stream photos have transferred over to my PC.  Why is this happening and how can I get the remaining photos?  All of my devices are charged and have perfect internet signals.  Thanks in advance for any tips and insights!

    It's probably happing because photo stream photos only remain in iCloud for 30 days (even though your last 1000 photos will remain on your devices until deleted).  When you enabled photo stream on your PC you would have only received photos from the last 30 days.
    To transfer older photos to your computer, create a shared photo stream that contains them and invite yourself as a subscriber (see http://help.apple.com/icloud/#mmc0cd7e99).

  • After updating iPod to iOS 5.0, cannot get into Game Center with previous nickname. It says my nickname is already in use by another account.  Why did this happen and how can I fix this with my old nickname and its data?

    After updating iPod Touch to iOs 5.0, I cannot get into Game Center with previous nickname.  The screen says my nickname is already in use by another account.  Why did this happen and how can I fix this so I can still use the same nickname?

    Did you haveany problem with updating to iOS 5? It soundsl like the update did not correctly restore from the backup that iTunes mnakes as the fisr step of the update.

    The "LocalAccount" is "On My Mac" and doesn't correspond to an account on a mail server. That all I can tell you from the information provided.

    Hard to say. What problem is causing you to need to force close apps? That may be a clue.

  • Tries to load a page from site but never loads, Then need to close Mozilla and reopen it. Told that it is already running, not, then often have to do a hard turn off to shut it down. Why is this happening, and what can be done?

    This happened many times today. There is no specific page. I usually have a page open and try to redirect from that page. It shows "connecting", but never does. I have run many scans which all turn up clean. Why is this happening and what can be done to fix it?

  • TS3276 hi after updating to Mountain Lion, it becomes difficult to quit Mail, always have to Force Quit. And while Mail is on standby, the fan keeps on running full power, the laptop is hot. Why is this happening?

    hi after updating to Mountain Lion, it becomes difficult to quit Mail, always have to Force Quit. And while Mail is on standby, the fan keeps on running full power, the laptop is hot. Why is this happening?

    If your computer was hot it wasn't asleep - it either didn't go to sleep or it work up after you put it to sleep. I've seen both things happen. First, read this article and follow the instructions.
    1) For the next few days/weeks pay attention to the blinking light on the front of your computer when you close the lid. Don't put the computer into your backpack/case until it begins to blink. Wait a minute or so after it starts to blink to make sure it doesn't stop blinking - the signal it woke back up.
    2) having followed the above instructions, if you take the computer out and it is hot again or if you take it out and discover it has powered down (you'll know this because when it starts up the battery will be drained and you'll see a progress bar over a ghostly display that will eventually become normal) immediately start the Console program and perform a search on 'sleep' and then 'wake'. This should bring up all the recent log files about sleep state changes (going to sleep and waking up). You should see one for when you put the computer to sleep and put it away and the next one should be just after you got it out. You'll find at least one though that shouldn't be there. That will tell you when the computer work up (when it shouldn't have) and might give a clue as to why.
    One of the whys could be a magnet that is making the computer think the lid has been opened.

  • The last 3 or 4 times I have tried to access my account, it has told me it has been deactivated and I have to reset each time, or give credit card info again.  Why is this happening and how do I stop it?

    You must contact iTunes support to get the problem resolved.
    http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/
    If there is a problem with your account or payment info, you cannot
    download anything (including free apps or updates) until the matter
    is resolved.
    In countries where the iTunes Store only sells apps, the accepted payment methods are Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. Other payment types such as gift cards, store credit, monthly allowances, ClickandBuy, and PayPal are not accepted. Depending on your App Store country, prices may be listed in your local currency, US Dollars, or Euros.    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5552

    I'm getting an " application" cannot be downloaded at this time message. With any app I try to download/update. Why is this happening and what can I do about it ?

    I am fighting the same error. I gifted an album to mydaughter and she got that when she tried to cash it in. iTunes support was quick to respond saying the would refund in 5 to 7 days. That was 13 days ago and they will not respond now. Try to contact support to see if they can help. Also be sure you do not have restrictions enabled in settings. If your parental controls are set to block certian content ratings this will give you an error as well.
      You could also try to purchacs through the iTunes program on Mac or PC. Check your restrictions there too. If your device is company owned your employers may have restrictions enabled preventing certian apps from being installed. Hope that helps.
