No printer appears in the add printer box even though I have downloaded the drivers

I was trying to print and got an error message Printer is offline. All connections are in place. I downloaded the drivers for my printer but when I go to add printer, there is no printer to select

Did you actually install the drivers as well as repaired permissions and restarting your computer?

    On Maverick my i cloud will not change the verification phone number even though I have change the phone number in apple and on contacts and restarted the computer. Help? I can't get the code necessary to fix the keychain without it.

    You can change the phone number the verification code is sent to from a device or Mac that has your iCloud keychain enabled as follows:
    In iOS 8, tap Settings > iCloud > Keychain > Advanced. In iOS 7, tap Settings > iCloud > Account > Keychain. Make sure the phone number under Verification Number is correct. If not, enter another phone number.
    In OS X Mavericks v10.9, choose Apple () > System Preferences. Click iCloud, then click Account Details. Make sure the phone number under Verification number is correct. If not, enter another phone number.
    If you don't have access to a device or Mac with your iCloud keychain enabled, you'll have to contact Apple support to verify your identity and get assistance making the change: http://www.apple.com/support/icloud/contact/.

  • My itunes doesn't save new music files to the itunes media folder, even though I have ticked the box in the preferences telling it do so...???

    Ok so, my itunes version is up to date, and I've located my itunes media folder... However, newly purchsed songs are not being backed up to the media folder, despite all the right options being ticked in the preferences box. This is immensly frustrating as I cannot back up my itunes library to a separate hard drive. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

    iTunes stores media in the location set in preferences.  If you have changed things then this won't necessarily be the same place it puts the library file and other files that also need to be backed up.
    If you are content to have everything in one location then I suggest you consolidate it all into one place.  Note this copies files, it doesn't move them, so you need ot make sure you have sufficient hard drive space wherever  you select.

    Technically you don't have to have it all in one location to back up.  You just need to make sure you have gotten everything.  I used to have iTunes on two separate drives but I would just make sure each drive was backed up 100% and I would know it was all backed up.

  • I keep getting the message that I need to download a new version even though I have downloaded the new version.

  • Why does Googlemail not appear on the Start Page every time instead of going all through "more" and " even more etc, plus having to sign in even though I have ticked the Stay signed in box?

    There is no consistency when one gets the Mozilla Firefox Start page.There is a line as follows :
    Web Images Maps News Shopping Books more
    To get Gmail one has to click on "more" which gets one a dropdown menu which ends in "even more" Clicking on this takes one to a page headed "Even More Google Products", including (Hurrah!) M Gmail.
    Click on this and one gets the page where one signs in, even though I have ticked the box entitled " Stay signed in" and at last ones's e-mail page turns up. Very occasionally, instead of Books or Shopping on the Start Page "Gmail" is there which when clicked on takes one directly to one's e-mail.It seems a hell of a rigmarole just to get one's e-mail!

    You can set Firefox home page to one of your choosing, see [[how to set the home page]].
    If the keep me signed in option is not working, you may have a malformed cookie. Try deleting Google/Gmail cookies, for details on how to do that see [[deleting cookies]].

  • I created a 5x7 postcard document in Word with text boxes and graphics.  When I converted it to PDF, some of the items were missing, even though they were in the boundaries of the page and looked fine on the Word document.  What happened, and how do I fix

    I created a 5x7 postcard document in Word with text boxes and graphics.  When I converted it to PDF, some of the items were missing, even though they were in the boundaries of the page and looked fine on the Word document.  What happened, and how do I fix it?  I'm trying to upload the PDF version to Vistaprint.  Thanks.

    Reader doesn’t create pdf files. You can use Acrobat (ask in that forum) to create pdfs. You can subscribe to the Adobe PDF Pack which has a create pdf functionality (please ask in that forum), or you can use a third party utility such as ghostscript, cutepdf, or Microsoft’s own PDF creation capability. For third party pdf creation you will need to ask in a forum dedicated to that software as fellow users of Reader are unlikely to have the knowledge to help.

  • Can someone tell me how to delete a number which is stored in my messages list even though i have deleted the text message itself?

    Hi.  Can anyone help me? I am trying to delete a phone number which appears in my Messages list even though i have deleted the text message content it came from.

    Try logging into your Yahoo account from a computer, search out the contact you are trying to delete and manually correct or delete the bad contact.
    The bad information might be hidden as a second address or other contact information (or misspelled) and not be showing up on the iphone but will pull up the address anyway.
    I had one old address in a contact that kept pulling up each time i tried to email him. The new address was there, but the old address was what the phone kept showing. When I edited the contact info from my computer the old address went away, and the new address started poping up.

    used wrong charger with ipod classic, now it wont turn on, displays the low battery icon even though its connected to the wright adapter.
    Can anyone help ?
    please?

    WHow long have you left it to charge?  Have you tried resetting it after a short period of time to see if that can help jumpstart the charging process? To do this, press and hold both the Select/Center and Menu buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.

  • Emails sent to me are sometime returned to the sender with the message "Inbox full" even though I have maybe less than 100 emails in the Inbox and I regularly compact them. How can I increase the storage space?

    Question
    Emails sent to me are sometime returned to the sender with the message "Inbox full" even though I have maybe less than 100 emails in the Inbox and I regularly compact them. I delete emails from the Inbox and the Sent and Trash boxes to overcome this. How can I increase the storage space to stop this happening?

    Hi terrybohle1938,
    Firefox is a web browser. It provides access to online content. Things like your email are handled by the content provider. Who is your email provider? You'll have better luck consulting their documentation.
    That being said, deleting only email is a great way to free up space. Another option would be to purchase a "Premium" account if your email provider offers this service. Many times more storage space is offered as part of paid subscription.
    Hopefully this helps!

  • Firefox keeps saving my tabs from several months ago - the same tabs! Even though I close them, the next time I restart, there they are. I was using a previous version of FF, now upgraded to 6 and same thing is happening.

    Firefox keeps saving my tabs from several months ago - the same tabs! Even though I close them, the next time I restart, there they are. I was using a previous version of FF, now upgraded to 6 and same thing is happening.

    Thanks for the reply. I never get the option to "Restore Previous History" from History. I don't even have the box checked that asks to delete the history when Firefox closes. I don't know what's wrong, no matter what, I always lose everything. I have the box marked "Show my windows and tabs from last time" for when I open Firefox, but it never shows that, just my homepage. Also, when I check my History, it only shows the pages that I opened since I started Firefox, nothing from before. Even if I were to open up 10 pages now, close Firefox, and open it, the history would only show the homepage that opened this time, not any of the 10 pages that I opened 5 minutes ago.

  • TS1424 I had purchased a VIP subscription in starmakerstudios karaoke for a week. I don't know how to stop auto renewal. Even though I have deleted the app I am still being charged

    Hey people please help me with my problem.
    I purchased a VIP subscription for a week in starmakerstudios karaoke. I don't know how to stop auto renewal. Even though I have deleted the app, I'm still being charged $1.99 a week!
    Please help me out...

    Hi Gerald,
    Well, you're not alone. The question is why is this happening? Since the referenced link shows the same type of problem with Yahoo finance, I suspect there is a coding problem on the site, specific to how Firefox is reading the code. Not being a programmer, I can't offer specific advice other than contacting either Firefox through their Community forum, or Yahoo Finance.

  • TS3304 I have an Ipad1 and an Ipad2. The Ipad1 cannot connect to my wifi and indicates the password is incorrect even though I am using the same password??

    I have an Ipad1 and an Ipad2. The Ipad1 cannot connect to my wifi and indicates the password is incorrect even though I am using the same password for the Ipad2??

    Some things to try first:
    1. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.
    2. Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.
    3. Change the channel on your wireless router (Auto or Channel 6 is best). Instructions at http://macintoshhowto.com/advanced/how-to-get-a-good-range-on-your-wireless-netw ork.html
    4. Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.
    5.  Renew IP Address: (especially if you are droping internet connection)
        •    Launch Settings app
        •    Tap on Wi-Fi
        •    Tap on the blue arrow of the Wi-Fi network that you connect to from the list
        •    In the window that opens, tap on the Renew Lease button
