My roommate played an April Fools’ prank on me by deleting a bunch of files from my Mac, an iMac running Snow Leopard. When I busted him on it, he said, “They’re still in the Trash can. Just drag them back out.” Well, I’m a stickler for organization, but I don’t recall where each and every one of those mistakenly trashed files used to reside. Is there a third-party utility that can help me? I’ve password-protected my Mac in the meantime.
I loved using the “tile” function in Mac OS 9 that allowed me to have new windows open so that the upper corner of the previous window remained visible. Now that I have a much larger screen on my iMac I find myself continually having to deal with hidden windows that get covered over by new windows that I open! Yes, I know about the F9 key and also about how Spaces shows multiple “desktops,” but I want to find an app that will allow me to get that old tiling behavior back.
I use Firefox and want to do some spring cleaning on my bookmarks. I know a lot of them are probably outdated. Seriously, I have hundreds. Before I start wading through them, is there a way to quickly weed out the ones that don’t even go anywhere anymore?
I thought I could stream all of my music from my Mac to my AirPort Express, but I can’t send my Pandora music to it. I’ve looked all over my AirPort Utility settings and my System Preferences, but there’s no way for me to stream Pandora to it. What gives?
Is there any way to have my iPhone leave a blank space on a home screen? I leave a blank spot at the end of some of my home screens, but then when I buy new apps, those apps are slotted into the blank spots, instead of added to the end of the list, where I want them. And moving them, even in iTunes, gets tedious.
I added a second display to my Mac mini setup, and I use it to keep the windows for iTunes, Adium, and Mail. I usually use keyboard shortcuts to access the menu items for those apps, but on the occasions I do need to use a menu, it’s so weird to have to go to the other display, which has the menubar. Is there any way to have the menubar show up on both displays?
