Re: ALL IMAGES in Finder

Don't delete! I am new to Snow Leopard and found the "Search For" section in my Finder sidebar and I still haven't figured out the value of this section, especially, the "All Images". To hide this section, or parts of this section, go to Finder Preferences>Sidebar and uncheck the items in the "Searc...

Re: Transfer of Mail

I have already moved a lot of my files over. Can I use Migration Assistant to selectively move the mail messages?

Transfer of Mail

Can messages that I have saved within Mail (Archived-I don't know if this is the correct function name) be transferred to a new computer? For example, I put old messages, that I want to refer to later, in a Mailbox/folder titled "Previous Mail". I have other mailboxes identified by various subjects....

Re: Snow Leopard Finder

Now I really feel stupid. Use the Finder icon in the dock! Of course, it opens in whatever folder I set in preferences. I can use it and eliminate the alias folders in the dock. The Finder Icon opens in column view and I can go wherever I want from there.

Thanks.

Re: Snow Leopard Finder

Thank you Stephen. That is exactly what I want to do. I created the alias Documents folder and replaced the real Documents folder in the dock with the alias and it opens the real Documents folder in a Finder window, in column view, with one click. Did the same thing for my Applications folder. Works...

Re: Snow Leopard Finder

Easy Peasy for you, but for me it didn't work. Everything tracked just as you stated, but when I opened documents again, it came up with the same black window with folder icons on it and the icon for "Open in Finder". However, it will open in column view if I am in Finder initially and click Documen...

Snow Leopard Finder

Is there a way to set the finder window to always open in column view when I select the Documents folder in the dock in Snow Leopard (10.6.8)? Presently, I have to do an extra step and select the "Open in Finder" icon in the opening window.

Re: Need Help with Microsoft Word

Thanks Jay. I am using 10.6, but my trail was a little different; Home>Applications>Microsoft Office X>Templates>My Templates and from there I just dragged it to the trash and it was gone. You gave me the clue of how to do it and what to look for in the listings. The difference may be that my MS off...

Need Help with Microsoft Word

How do I remove a template document from the templates I have created in Project Gallery>My Templates? I have created template(s) in the My Templates folder that I no longer need. I cannot find any way to remove/delete them from the folder.

Re: bing

I use Camino, which is a Mozilla browser like Firefox. In Camino>Preferences>General then in the window Default Web Browser select Camino and this sets Camino as my default browser. I suspect Firefox has a similar preference window. However, I am still using Tiger 10.4.11. I don't know if this makes...
