Apple :: Making An Application's Menubar Minimize/close With The Application
Mar 11, 2010
There's a little quirky behavior that's bugged me a little bit ever since I started using Snow Leopard last summer.
Whenever I minimize or close an application using either the yellow/red buttons on the application or simply hitting CMD+M / CMD+W, the menubar for that application persists, necessitating a click on whatever application behind it before that app is actually "active".
For instance, if I were to hit CMD+W on Firefox right now, iTunes would be staring me in the face, but the menubar would still be for Firefox -- and I'd have to click on iTunes before being able to play something.
Is there any config setting or some way to make the menubar minimize/close with the application I'm minimizing or closing?
New 2nd generation vostro 3550 laptop fingerprint reader driver software is available in dell online but there is no application software for fingerprint reader without any application how will I use it?
I don't own a Mac, but I've used them. One of the things that has always bothered me about them is the way applications launch. Specifically, they always seem to launch in their own un-maximized window. The yellow button doesn't always fully maximize the application and one has to drag the window into full screen and even then the front row thingy blocks the window from fully maximizing.
Is there a simple way to fully maximize an application on a Mac? Is there a setting that will make it so that all apps automatically launch maximized?
What is the method to automatically launch an application when the user logs in. Does it involve putting an alias of the app in some specific "startup" folder, like in Windows?
I am trying to install an older scanner driver on my new MBP, which I was only partially able to do. The "button manager" app, would not install automatically using the installer app. Hence, in order for the buttons on the scanner to work, I have to first manually launch the Button Manager. On my older MB, it would launch at login, so it was resident at all times. I none such difficulty installing the same driver package on the old MB.
I find it odd that my new MB has so many quirks that my 1 year old MB unibody does not. They are running exactly the same OS version. Hmm And Migration Assitant left a boatload of stuff (such as this), unmoved.
I was on mesenger for mac earlier when it froze with the spinning beach ball mouse and i had to force quite the application, is this a sign of hardware failior some how, or is it just a poorly coded program? i have never had an application freeze befor in the past 8 years of having macs
if anyone can recommend a firewall application that controls both the incoming and the outgoing traffic. The built in firewall protects from incoming request, but I'd like to control the outgoing connections as well. I did a search and found 1 thread, but it's more than a year old.
Little Snitch and WaterRoof (and its simpler version NoobProof) seem to fit the bill. Any recommendation besides these?
1. Advise a downloader(on Vista pc i use Flashget and enjoy it), Speed Download is shareware+interface is not too friendly. some pals recomended: iGetter, Leech, Download Queue, Download Wizard, and Download Manager, but which one to choose, which is better ?
2. Which application delete program would you suggest: ŗ) AppZapper b) CleanApp c) AppDelete
3. need a prog. for .RAR files ( not Stuffit, cos it has unfriendly interface for me, imho), which is better: Unrar X, Simply Rar UnArchiver
Yesterday I plugged in an HDMI cable to output to a Toshiba tv. After unplugging the cable I no longer have sound on my HP Envy 17 Notebook (this notebook has Beats Audio). The product # is EOK85UA#ABA.
Recently done a clean install of W7 so lost most of my acer applications (god is it hard to find them) and was having trouble finding the Crystal eye programme. Does anyone have any knowledge of where i could find a version that works with my model (6930g, W7 home prem 32) and will record video, the version i installed when i got w7 only let me take pictures?

I tried to install the Dell System Detect application but I couldn't because of this error;Unable to install or run this application. This application requires Version 4.0 Full or other compatible .NET Framework..Where do I get this framework version?
Every time I open one of the Lenovo apps like like Support or Companion, I get the message "Enhanced functions for this application are available". ¬†I click the message, a browser opens up, I download "dependecypackage.exe", I install, setup asks for a restart and I let it, and the process repeats again and again. ¬†I keep getting this "Enhanced functions..." message. ¬†It is driving me crazy. ¬†How do I end this cycle? ¬† T440s i5-4300U 4GB RAM 256GB SSD Factory Win 8 upgraded to Win 8.1
Just bought this laptop. Upon booting up got a Rapid Start error Message. Uninstalled the Rapid Start Driver and downloaded the latest Rapid Start Intel driver from Dell Downloads. Upon trying to install it, I get the following message:

My T530 (a month old) is driving me crazy with this issue: Depending on which application is in the foreground, it will dim/undim the built-in screen (1600x900 version). I have turned off adaptive screen brightness in the power options, and I've turned off Film Mode Detection and Adaptive Contrast Enhancement in the Intel Graphics and Media Control Panel, but this "feature" won't go away. ¬† How in the world can I get the screen to be on 100% brightness, unless I manually change it?
I have Dell Inspiron 5447 i3 with AMD Radeon R7 M265 with Windows 8.1 and have recently updated all needed windows updates.
I know how to add applications in the switchable settings as high-performace with *.exe extension but when I installed applications from the apps store (i.e. Asphalt 8 - Airborne, etc.) I cannot seem to add them to the switchable graphis settings to get the AMD GPU used. I know that the AMD GPU not getting used because I used a monitoring tool (openhardwaremonitor) that says it was not used. I can add applications like some other games I installed but not from the windows apps store so now I am really confused.¬†
How can I get the AMD graphics to work with some apps in the apps store (specifically in my case, Asphalt)
I don't know what it is with this laptop and messengers. But NOTHING wants to work. Heres a list of problems
1) AIM wont open (fixed, I had to change port number) So now AIM works on iChat and Adium
2) MSN wont open on the actual application (Mac Messenger) I want to webcam chat with people, and it just WONT start. It starts on adium since I checked the box to use http or something, but I can't webchat on adium.
When I try to open messenger, it says I am not connected to internet, which I clearly am...
I checked my routers firewall. And I am not too sure how to change things on the macs firewall. I just want to use messengers..
I keep getting a message on my laptop: Catalyst control center: host application has stopped working. ¬† This has started happening after I tried to do a BIOS update last week and I ended up with the blue screen of death & had to recover my whole laptop.
Faced with the problem. No sound after the laptop. When you try to check the sound device, a window pops up "the device is already in use by another application." But no program is not running. After rebooting the laptop sound occurs. Drivers are all set.

I heard that the ram on the macbook air is glued to the motherboard.Does anyone know of a way to upgrade it to 4gb, because 2gb might become too constraining? If not, do you think they might come out with a 4gb version soon?
I have an old mac powerbook G4, i dont want to buy a new mac but I rather use a little money fixing this one up and making it faster and putting in the new OS. What are some steps I can take to make this computer faster, more reliable and up to speed with the new stuff out there (well this may be a stretch, but as much as possible)?
I need it to handle some multi-tasking and mostly school related stuff. Nothing major like designing, etc.
I've been trying to find a way to make cmd-tab function a little bit more like its Windows counterpart. It seems that when cmd-tab'ing my way through open applications, anything which was intentionally minimized previously will not become active, whereas in Windows, doing that will bring to the foreground whatever you select via alt-tab.
It's a bit reminiscent of how OS X doesn't concretely associate the menu bar with the application in the foreground; I've posted about that before, but to no avail.
Anyway, does anyone have any thoughts on the cmd-tab thing? Yes, I realize that OS X is not Windows. It's just that I happen to like both OSes (and installed Windows 7 Pro via Boot Camp today for that reason), so if there's a way I can have a more desired behavior on this, I'd definitely enjoy it.
My friend just gave me her White Macbook pre 2007 i beleive to fix because i fix all her computers but this is the first time im trying to fix a mac . Upon pressing the power button im greeted by the BONG tone and a white screen. Then i start hearing the HD making some very messed up noises witch to me are the fimiliar sound of a hd failure and so i beleive this is the problem. After a minute or two i get a flashing folder with a ? on it witch means it can't find the system files it needs to boot. So i tryed booting from the Tiger discs but it will not boot. Now this is leading me to beleive that it is the logic board. Right now im waiting till morning to buy a torx t8 so i can replace the HD.
