Problem with the Finder Window

Ever since I updated to Mountain Lion, for some reason every time I open a Finder Window nothing shows up in the side pane such as the Applications, Documents, etc. It's just blank. But for some reason every now and then it actually does show up again. I have no idea what is causing this so if anyone has a solution it would be a great help.

While in Finder, I suggest opening Preferences and choosing the Sidebar tab.  See what's there and change it to your liking.  Then report back if the results are inconsistent when you open Finder windows in the future.

  • Problem with the Finder window in Chrome

    Hello,
    I have a problem with my finder window in Chrome.
    Since the window isn't a separate window anymore, but stuck to the top of the webpage, my finder window is too big. I can't read the "Cancel" or "Send" (I have no idea what's supposed to be there in English but I assume it's something like "send" and "cancel") buttons. I have provided some images of the problem, even if I make the Chrome window as small as possible, the finder window still is too big for my screen. I can resize the finder window from lest to right, but not up or down, which is extremely irritating for me.
    If anyone can help me how I can solve this problem.
    Thanks!

    I found the solution on another thread...Here it is.
    "I was having the same problem.  I found a way to make it smaller.  First, I opened chrome and clicked the green button on the window to make chrome go into full screen.  Then I tried to save a file to make the finder window open in chrome. When it opened in full screen I could see the bottom of the window so I resized it to make it a little smaller.  Once I did this it remembered the size so now I can access the bottom buttons when I take it out of full screen mode. Hope this helps."
    Worked like a charm!

  • Is there a problem with the Itunes Windows Installer Programme?

    The reason I ask is because I had a perfectly working Itunes programme on my external hard drive, from which I then deleted all the double ups of songs I had and then could not gain auto. updates of the dsongs I wished to add to itunes.
    It said to reinstall Itunes, which I tried to do and since this time the installation stops when installing the registry components and the following message appears -
    There is a problem with the Windows Installer Package. A programme required for this to install could not be run. Comntact your support personall or package provider.
    Can anyone help please?
    Thank you in advance for any help forwarded
    MrG
    P.S. - Not that well versed in computer speak, so laymans terms welcomed.

    This message often relates to a problem with Apple software update.
    Go to Add remove programs and find Apple Software update. Try repairing it.
    Select Change>>repair.
    That probably will not work
    Then try uninstalling any instance you find of Apple Software update. That probably will not work either.
    Download and install Microsoft Installer cleanup utility, there are instructions on the page as well as the download. Note that what you download is the installer not the program – you have to run it to install the program.

  • Problems with the System.Windows.Forms.Timer

    Hi All,
    Could some one help me please? I'm having a problem using the System.Windows.Forms.Timer inside an ItemEvent, the timer event just doesn't works...give a look in my code:
    private System.Windows.Forms.Timer myTimer = new System.Windows.Forms.Timer();
    if (pVal.FormUID.Equals("FrmTimer") && pVal.ItemUID.Equals("btnStartTimer") && (pVal.Before_Action.Equals(true)) && (pVal.EventType.Equals(SAPbouiCOM.BoEventTypes.et_CLICK)))
                myTimer .Interval = 1000;
                myTimer .Enabled = true;
                myTimer .Tick += new EventHandler(myTimer _Tick);
    void myTimer _Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
                SBO_Application.MessageBox("Timer: " + DateTime.Now, 1, "OK", "", "");
    does someone have already tried to use the timer inside an itemevent, or could suggest another solution?
    thanks a lot...

    Hi Bruno,
    Unfortunately you cannot use a Forms.Timer without using a windows form (ie not a SBO form). Have you looked at the other 2 timer objects in .Net, the System.Timer.Timer and System.Threading.Timer? Here's a link to a web page that goes through the differences between each one:

    What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 10 to run on?
    You are involved in the Premiere Elements 10/NVIDIA GeForce issue whose full details (description and fix) are included
    in the Announcement at the top of this forum. Copy for your convenience below.
    You gave a lot of details but did not include the computer operating system. This information may be the key whether
    the known fix will work for you. The known fix requires roll back of the driver version to about May 2013. If your computer
    is Windows 8 or 8.1 64 bit, there may not be a driver old enough to resolve the issue. This may force you consider
    a Premiere Elements version other than 10 or a different video card/graphics card for your computer. This issue is
    specific for Premiere Elements 10 and the NVIDIA GeForce cards.
    Copy of Announcement at top of this forum....
    Premiere Elements 10 NVIDIA Video Card Driver Roll Back
    If you are a Premiere Elements 10 user whose Windows computer uses a NVIDIA GeForce video card and you are experiencing
    Premiere Elements 10 display and/or unexplained program behavior, then your first line of troubleshooting needs to be rolling
    back the video card driver version instead of assuring that it is up to date.
    Since October 2013 to the present, there have been a growing number of reports about display and unexplained workflow
    glitches specific to the Premiere Elements 10 user whose Windows computer has a NVIDIA GeForce video card. If this
    applies to you, then the “user to user” remedy is to roll back the NVIDIA GeForce video card driver as far as is necessary
    to get rid of the problems. The typical driver roll back has gone back as far as March – July 2013 in order to get a working
    Premiere Elements 10. Neither NVIDIA nor Adobe has taken any corrective action in this regard to date, and none is
    expected moving forward.
    Since October 2013, the following thread has tried to keep up with the Premiere Elements 10 NVIDIA reports

  • Problem with the Finder when copying stuff on a server

    Hi all !
    I have a NAS at home and since a few days, copying stuff on its hard drive has become a pain.

    I have reformated the hard drive of the NAS, and its configuration is OK.
    On the mac, I have tried everything : Zapping the PRAM, repair authorisations, except reinstall the system. That i really dont want to have to do at the moment.
    So can anyone help with this ?
    Best regards,
    Phil.

    Exact same situation going on here. 
    Connecting to a NAS (DroboFS).  Started happening a few weeks ago.  I'm looking at a 1.19gb copy right now over a hardwired ethernet connection.  8.4 megs copied so far in 45 minutes. 
    os 10.8.4 Macbook Pro.
    Have tried SMB, AFP, using IP address, aliases, etc.  No noticiable difference.
    Used to be lighting fast, connection looks good, 1000T,... network speed tests look good, have looked at ip problems, everything looks good and nothing on my network changed.
    Only message in the system logs of relevance to the copy are:
    MacBook-Pro.local Locum[466]: Connection with distnoted server was invalidated
    MacBook-Pro.local WebProcess[467]: objc[467]: Object 0x7f9ebbc1c6c0 of class NSUserDefaults autoreleased with no pool in place - just leaking - break on objc_autoreleaseNoPool() to debug

  • Make my files move with the Finder window?

    I don't know how many of you are familiar with Windows, but in Windows Explorer, whenever you changed the size of the window you were viewing your files in, the files would move with the size of the window while still staying in the same order. When I resize a window in the Finder, my files stay in the exact same position they were before. They don't move with the window. Does anybody know a way to change this?

    Actually, it is possible, but it depends on what view style (Icon, List, Column View, etc.) and what view options are set.
    From your description, I assume you're referring to a Windows window that was in Icon view, such as the Control Panels window (when viewed in Classic Mode, that is).
    You can do this in a Finder window if you switch to Icon view, choose View > Show View Options, and then change the "Arrange by" popup button to something other than None or Snap to Grid. For example, choose Name (how the Control Panels' window would be sorted), and then when you resize the window, the items will be "redistributed" in rows from left to right accordingly.
    When you said "When I resize a window in the Finder, my files stay in the exact same position they were before.", that corresponds to the Arrange by setting of "None". This choice provides a way to arrange items in a "spatial" manner. For example, on your Windows Desktop, you might have put your Recycle Bin icon in the lower left, Computer icon at location X, Y, etc. In this particular mode, the location of the item is considered "important" and it won't be moved just because you made the window larger or smaller.
    The "Snap to Grid" is the same as the None (spatial), except that when you explicitly drag and drop an item to position it, it is automatically aligned into the nearest grid "cell" (row and column combination).
    Hope this helps....

  • Problems with the latest Windows 7 Conexant HD Audio Drivers For WIndows 7

    Hi,
    I have a Toshiba Satellite P305-S8997E with the Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 211 speakers. I have recently upgraded with the Windows 7 32/64-bit audio drivers posted within the last week in the Drivers section, and have had a few problems with them. Namely that whenever I listen to music (and etc), the volume is fairly low, and even when the speaker AND media player (Foobar, FYI) volumes are cranked, they flucuate, and eventually end up being much lower than they should. Is there any fix to this? I recently downgraded to the last Vista 64-bit drivers for them and that has ended the volume problem, but it doesn't sound as good as it should to my ears. Any help is appreciated.
    Also, this computer is only about two months old, and this problem hasn't surfaced until very lately, so I doubt it's something like the speakers going out or anything.

    Windows 7 is still a PRE-RELEASE OS until the OFFICIAL release date of October 22nd.  Toshiba and other manufacturers are still working on their drivers and may not have fully functioning drivers until then.  My advice is be patient and wait for them to get all of the bugs out.
    If you don't post your COMPLETE model number it's very difficult to assist you. Please try to post in complete sentences with punctuation, capitals, and correct spelling. Toshiba does NOT provide any direct support in these forums. All support is User to User in their spare time.

  • Fixing problems with the Microsoft Windows Installer Cleanup Utility

    Sorry for the long subject. I am having what appear to be common problems with my acrobat reader for which the only solution appears to be using the microsoft windows installer cleanup thing.
    I have acheived downloading the utility to my desktop but when I try to run it I get an error message as follows:
    Across the top of the message it says 'WINDOWS SCRIPT HOST' and in the box it says:

    Does anyone have any clues as to where I can go from here as I am stuck with a program I can neither use or uninstall, and a reascue plan that doesn't want to cooperate either. And please treat me like a 2 yr old with the technical stuff. Thanks. :-)
    Karen

    Can you try to download it again, perhaps to the C:\ drive rather than the Desktop? Delete the Desktop download, then open Windows Explorer, and run the installer from the C:\ drive.
    P.S. do you have administrative privileges on your system?

  • Problem with the Titler WIndow

    Hello,
    I don't know how it happened but the titler window is saparate in 2 windows : one with the title by it self and the other one with tools and buttons.
    How is it possible to have only one window again ?
    Thank you for your help and regards,
    Daniel

    Daniel,
    Though I would expect it to be in Eddie's link, you only need to go to Window (in the Toolbar at the top of the GUI), choose Workspaces, and then choose one of the default Workspaces listed, or any Custom Workspaces that you might have created. Hint: once you get a Workspace set up the way you like it, do save it as a Custom Workspace. Can save a lot of time later. I have about a dozen, plus the ones that ship/install with PrPro and use them for different tasks.
    Good luck,

  • Problems with the latest windows installer?

    FMS *sigh* FML
    I am trying to get live streaming running on my windows 7 machine (as full admin; permissions shouldn't be an issue)
    - Windows install
    - No serial/Development server version
    - Yes Appache
    - Admin, password...
    - Default, default, default...ect, GO.
    Out of box, nothing worked - localhost just laughed at me with a blank ("could not connect") page and the FMS admin page was no better "Login attempt to the server below failed...etc".  Then I found that [root]/Apache2.2/conf/httpd.conf came straight from the installer like this
    # Please see httpd.conf.orig for the configuration of a default
    # (non-FMS) installation of apache.
    Listen 8134
    # If you plan to run FMS as root on linux, you _must_ specify a
    # valid user, with access to the FMS installation direction, or
    First off - Isn't that supposed to be set to 80?  Also, httpd.conf had no definition for ServerRoot - I am no apache expert (that cannot be overstated) but everytime i've used it, i've needed to define this.
    Anyway, I figured I had nothing to lose and so armed with essentially my mom's working knowledge of Apache's .conf schema, I went in and changed "Listen 80" and added a definition for ServerRoot, reset and...tada...finally, localhost would resolve to that FMS startup page.  But that doesn't mean much because I get a timeout/failure on the rtmp demo (sure the http demo works but who cares; ignf about http).  But that makes sense because the FMS admin page STILL can't connect to localhost (or localhost:1111 for that matter) so there was no server instance to connect to anyway...[Jason slumps; a broken man].
    Anyway - anyone have any insight?  Same problems += soultion?

    Hi,
    Thank you for trying FMS.
    Though you mentioned you have the admin access on your windows 7 machine, I still doubt the admin privileges are the cause of the problem for you. Let's take your issues one by one.
    After the FMS installation, the installer gives options to start the service automatically (few check boxes to select). But on Windows 7, that wont work straight away even though you are logged in as admin. What you need to do is to open a command prompt (with run as administrator). So, your command prompt is actually elevated with admin stuff. Now try to start the fms services as below :
    c:\> net start fms
    c:\> net start fmsadmin
    Once you get the successful messages, try to make connections, it should work.
    Next, the apache that comes along with FMS runs/listens on 8134 itself. Port 80 is taken over by the FMS processes (to be exact, the FMSEdge process) which will redirect all HTTP traffic to Apache on 8134 and all the RTMP traffic to itself (to be exact, to FMSCore process) and hence you can keep the 8134 intact.
    Once your services start correctly, there wont be any port conflict/problems.
    Please try and let us know if that helps.
    Thank you !
