Re: delete message without opening it

I assume you mean an incoming MAIL message? And if so... just select it in the Mail program (single click) and then hit the delete key.

Totally puzzling!! Ideas?

OK you Mac gurus.... Here's a poser for you. I'm helping one of our club members with his Mac. I wanted to set his Finder so that when he clicked on the Finder smiley face in the Dock... that a new Finder window would open showing his "House" with all his files. I've gone to Finder Preferences and s...

Re: 10.11 El Capitan

Finally decided to bite the bullet and install El Capitan. It took many hours (!!!) to download on my 55 mb/s internet connection which surprised me because it's usually a pretty quick line. All seems well and have not encountered any bad things so far. As a relief that others might also find intere...

Re: Eject CD icon?

Good work both of you! I hadn't figured out how to even Google it. The fact that this is a configurable part of core system services tells me that someone pretty knowledgeable must have set this up for my friend (most likely some time ago) because I sure never heard of it before. One wonders what ot...

Eject CD icon?

OK guys, here's a new puzzler for you. I was helping a friend with her two Macs the other day and noticed an icon in the upper right corner menubar that I had never seen there before. The icon is right next to the ones for Battery Level, Blue Tooth, Time Machine, etc. It looks like a standard "Disk ...

iTunes doesn't launch when iPhone is plugged in

Many users on Apple's boards are reporting that since the recent iTunes 12.2 update that the app no longer launches automatically when an iPhone is plugged in for sync. I had the same problem myself. Other posters tracked down the problem as an issue with iTunesHelper.app, a component of the iTunes ...

Photos versus iPhoto

I am disappointed, dismayed, and frankly, grossed out, by Apple's new Photos app. I think it's yet another inexplicable example of dumbing down to the point of complete uselessness. Whoever designed it must have been drunk, incompetent, or actually psychopathic. I'm trying to be polite about this bu...

Re: Slow Photos Upload To iCloud

I too thought that I would try loading all my photos in the Cloud just to see what that was like. Like you, I had very very slow load times. I left Photos running while I did other things and from what I can tell, it took about 3 days to complete everything. During the time while it was "working" I ...
