Migration assistant

I used migration assistant to transfer files from my old IMac to my new MBP which I plan to use exclusively. I now have two login windows, each requires a password. Can I undo this and start over? I am the only user, I do not want two windows nor the logins.

Re: can't print

The only thing in the Print Queue was the single page that I was trying to print and I had deleted it when it failed to print and started over. I did this several times. I even rebooted the IMac. I then tried Jerry's hint of deleting the printer and then adding it back. The first time it failed but ...

Re: can't print

I've been using the printer for the last 5 years with no problems. I have even unplugged and replugged the USB cable on both ends. I am thinking the problem is in my 8 year old IMac because I just printed a page using my laptop. I have recently purchased a new Macbook Pro but have put off transferri...

can't print

All of a sudden I can not print to my Epson Stylus NX400 from my IMac 10.6.8. It must be a problem with the IMac because I can print from my laptop. When I hit "print" I see a quick message saying it is sending the info to the printer but then nothing happens. I have rebooted and even updated the la...

turn off video pop ups

I read CNN.com a lot and get tired of turning off the videos when I just want to read the article. Is there any way to do that?

Re: combining files

Stephen, Thanks for the instructions, I'll do that. I brought my scanner with me on a recent trip to MI for the sole purpose of scanning these old letters. I have an Epson V600 and it does scan to PDF but unfortunately I had never used this function before, so never thought of it at the time.

combining files

I have recently scanned some old letters that my mother saved from the 30s and 40s and I would like to share them with my siblings. Most letters are over two pages so that means I have 2 or more files for each letter. How can I combine them into one file? They are saved as JPGs and I assume I have t...

Re: Finder Sidebar Size

I have Snow Leopard 10.6.8, and I think I can help. Go to "finder" (click on desktop); click on "view" in top left corner; click on "show View Options".

security

I've had my IMac for over 6 years and it is running 10.6.8 and I have never worried about security or firewalls. For the second time this week I have gotten an email from an address that belongs to a relative, but they did not send the message. What can you recommend to clean up my Imac if needed? I...
