how to organize files in folders by date modified by when i modified it. I know that you can right click and use "arrange by date modified" but that sometimes arranges the files when they were modified online and not by me. I know on windows when i use Arrange by last modified it arranges it according to the date when i last downloaded it or opened it, not by when it was modified online. I would like to be arrange by date last opened or used by me.
I just migrated from W7 to OS X and love it so far but was wondering if there was a way to have the folders show thumbnails instead of just the plain blue folder. Maybe I'm just spoiled because later versions of Windows had that. [url]
Saw this tip on another site and figured others may find it useful and wanted to pass it along.
Tip: Using The New Automatic Import Folder In iTunes 9
10:26 am, September 10th, 2009, Giles Turnbull
iTunes 9 has neat little new feature: it will automatically import any music or videos you throw into a specific folder.
That folder is called ďAutomatically Add to iTunesĒ, and after installing iTunes 9 youíll find it tucked away inside your ď~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/Ē folder.
Anything you drag into it will be imported into iTunes immediately Ė and itís worth noting that the original file (the one you put into the Automatic folder) promptly disappears afterwards. It doesnít get trashed, but moved to the appropriate place inside the iTunes Music folder.
I just bought a macbook! Yah, but I've already hit a snag... a notebook is only good if it contains my music library! so seeing as I have everything on my PC and I already have the network folders set up... I tried ot copy my music (3.71GB) onto my mac, but my mac can only see 945MB of it and that's all it will copy. it can see and copy my video's folder(195GB). but only a fraction of the music!
I've got a couple of accounts set up in Mail, and I'm anal about keeping a clean inbox. Is there any plugin of which I'm unaware that can automatically move messages in either server's inbox into an archive folder of my choosing, depending on the account?
I am a proud owner of a 2.53 Ghz Core2Duo MBP with 4 Gig memory. This is my first Mac ever.....so I'm quite excited.
I just installed Vmware Fusion 3.0 to ensure compatibility with some of my windows programs. During the installation of Windows 7 on the system, I realized that the installation allocated 1 gig of ram to Win 7. Is it possible to increase it to 2 gig, since I Gig is the bare minimum for windows 7? And how will it affect the rest of the system. Or should i be looking into memory upgrades?
I was just wondering since battery life is lower on an MBP running vista, and the MBP is one big heat sink, is there an alternative to SMCfan for vista that works with the MBP? And what is power management like on vista for he MBP? I think i"m finally going to break and get one
complain about the differences between Apple's version of MS Office Home and the PC variety.
Speaking generally, have you noticed any issues in working on Word/Excel/Powerpoint files on your MBP that were created on a PC, and vice versa?
I'm asking because my company (as do most) uses PCs at work, and I'm wondering if there could be any issues in my working on MS Office files at home with a MBP and then planning to send them to colleagues who are using PCs.
just got my mac last week, been using windows since forever. It's definitely a pleasure and exciting experience to us Mac OS. However there was a problem, I like to put my files on the desktop, but I couldn't figure out how to check the size of them.
I some how managed to completely screwup the file permissions ownership on my macbook (10.6). This seems to have also mirrored itself to my timemachine. So I did a clean instal of SL, and then manually moved my files from TM back across, but unfortunatley the permission for all said files are wrong.
So I went as set using cmd+I the permission to myself as owner, as checked to apply to enclosed items, thinkin that would do the trick.
Unfortunately while it did fix a few files, the majority still remain stuck with the "_unknown" as the owner, which is preventing me from opening and using pretty much everything on my mac.
Does anyone know a way to force write the owner permissions to me for ALL files in my home directory?
I have tried the repair permissions in disk utility several times, it does nothing
Where does Quicktime for Windows save its configuration file? I need to manually change the config file in order to solve a problem with Merriam Webster Visual Dictionary that has a problem with the audio. If you don't use Windows but know the name of the file.
on OS X is there any way to see some details on a file by hovering your cursor over it? Ex: If I hover my mouse on a JPG on my desktop I can see the dimensions (like 1920x1200) and the filesize (like 2.3MB). Is there any way to enable this on my Macbook Pro?
My understanding is that FileVault's shortcomings are such:
- Documented vulnerabilities - Requires that user be logged off to backup with Time Machine
I have a few things on my notebook that I would like to be kept safe in the event of a loss or theft. I used to use AxCrypt on Windows for this, but there are no OSX builds for it, so what I'm wondering is this:
- If I create an encrypted image and use it like a TrueCrypt/Cryptainer partition, will Time Machine back the image up as it changes over time like any other file? - Is there any reason I shouldn't do that over some other way of keeping things safe?
I am creating a clean install disc for vista home premium to eventually use in a dual boot with XP 32 or 64,
I am following some guides that were recommended to me by Ops on NBR. (Stallen/Orev) and I am going step by step. I have found that the SWSetup is for HP laptops only.? I have located the DRV file which has all drivers for the Acer 5100-5674 (or most)
Is there a folder similar to SWSetup that has the "crapware" . I would like to make sure I backup everything that I may want now or in the future.
has anyone been successful in clean installing vista home premium on a 5100-5674?
I accidentally (don't ask how) deleted a folder containing 180 GB of data from my 8920 (with 640gb hdd), and foolishly emptied the recycle bin after that. The data was in drive d: please give me some help guys..i have no idea how to recover my life which is my-180gb folder. Honestly, this is the most f-up error that ever happened to me
i am using¬†HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC ¬†of windows 8.1, i used a pendrive today after that in my all drive, (as C,D,E & F) ¬†two folder( $RECYCLE.BIN & System Volume Information) auto created, as it not be deleted.Also using authentic antivirus,
I am having problems with the touchpad on my laptop. When I am in the middle of typing I have to watch because it will begin typing where my cursor was laft on the screen. I have to be very careful because I barely touch my touchpad and the mouse will click. I have tried to figure out how to turn the sensitivity down but I cannot find it in the devices. It tells me no devices were found when I click on the mouse folder. I have tried and tried but I cannot find anywhere to change the settings for the touchpad. when I am trying to type a paper and I look up and half my paper is in the middle of a different section or it just hasn't been typing because I have clicked out of the screen.
It flickers when i click something or open a folder. It also goes crazy when i put on a video. ¬† Things i've done:¬† ¬† Updated drivers. ''Hold power button'' method. ¬† Clues i have: ¬† 1. I remember back when i just got the laptop, it would always flicker in the exact same way when a charger was plugged in that was too weak (power out let too low message) and changing the charger always fixed it. ¬† Now i still have the same charger (i have 3 hp and 1 dell chargers at home that fit my laptop) and none of them seems to be ''enough'' (60w x2 65w x1 and 120w x1). ¬† ¬†2. Another funny thing is that when i uninstalled my Ati Radeon HD5850 drivers completely, there was no flickering, but obviously, i need to have that as i use this laptop strictly for games)¬† ¬† 3. The screen refresh rate is 60hz and not possible to change,. ¬† 4. There is NO flickering on an external screen (tried two tvs, both didn't clicker a bit) ¬† 5. You might say it's a hardware problem, but i actually somehow got it to work without the flickering earlier tonight and stayed up all night playing and it didn't cause me any issues. It was working great. ¬† 6. Occasionally the PC will freeze (could that be a battery problem? since i currently am not using one as both mine are broken and i'm waiting for a new one to ship) ¬† 7. I have had 2 blue screens of death recently. One while installing ATI drivers and other i don't remember.
My Recovery E: Folder is full -- 31.9MB free of 14.6GB - Windows Vista. I keep getting pop ups/messages saying that my E: folder is almost full, and occasionally that I should close my internet browser so I don't lose information.¬†
Some of them discussions said to go into the E: folder and delete files which should be there (can't access it the folder -- there's only a warning message) or to change the Drive Letter (get a message that says it cannot remove "the letter drive of your volume", and now I'm not sure what I should do next.
