Re: Missing 'my documents' from apple mac laptop
Double click on the hard drive icon . It will open and her document folder will be on the left side. Click it and the docs should be there. Also, you can go to the toolbar and click "Go". then click on home in the drop down menu. A window will open up and you will see the document folder. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

Is your hard drive still working? Is a single file missing.
If you deleted a single file or a few files, click on the trash can in in the lower right corner. Find the deleted file(s) and drag it back to the original folder or just click on > Put Back.
Go to your utilities folder located in the applications folder there is a utility called grab. Open it up and then go to capture in the menus and select which one you want to use from selection, window, screen and timed screen. Once you have selected the one you require the captured image will come up as a preview document and then you can chose how you want ot save it and then you can import it into the word docuement. Hope this helps.
What to do is locate your documents folder by going to the go menu and then select Home and then single click on your documents folder and drag it onto the dock and then release it. That should sort it. Hope this helps.
Call your service provider and have them upgrade your wi/fi service for more bandwidth. Look at your wireless modem/router to see if your on the G or N speed. A/B/G will be slower. Change the location of your laptop so it's closer to the wireless signal or alternatively go to the coffee shop or hotel and use their free wi/fi as their speeds are faster.
There are scores of downloadable word processing programs for the MACBOOKS that are free from CNET.com Google has online programs that emulate Microsoft office format as does Openoffice.org. I would suggest looking at them for no cost solutions, especially if you are going to print out hard copies of documents only or need to collaborate over the web.
However if you want compatible documents, or ones that are able to be shared with others possibly not on MAC platform, like professors on Windows, etc. then you will need to purchase Microsoft Office for MAC. Check with your school as well. If they are on the MAC platform many times the school will provide the software via an enterprise license agreement with Apple/Microsoft. If in the end you have to foot the bill for the program and load it physically, be sure and get the educator discount, it substantially cuts the cost. You can do a search at Microsoft.com or Apple.com for the online purchase options and use EDUCATOR or STUDENT as keywords.
