When I opened my computer after a trip the Safari Homepage shows Apple Start but all the headings are missing, can't type in a URL or Google question and no back option. How do I fix this?

In the menu bar at the top of your screen to the left of the Apple choose the view drop down menu. The first option is Hide/Show toolbar, click this if it displays Show Toolbar. If not please post back.

Finding Recent Items

Ever open something and then forget where it was that you put it? If you're like me, you prefer the easiest possible solution to a problem. While there are other ways of finding documents you were recently using, the simplest is a little-known trick you can use with the Recent Items menu in your Apple Menu.

All you need to do is hold down the command (Apple logo/"clover") key while you have the Recent Items menu open and the option for each item will change to 'Show [item] in Finder'. Just click on that document you JUST had open, and a Finder will will open showing you exactly where it is.

Display is too large for screen

Hello Dr. Bankert and thank you for contacting Fixya, I will be glad to assist you.

What you need to do is turn off a setting within the System Preferences > Universal Access feature within your Power Mac G5.

To do this, you need to click on the Apple menu icon, located in the upper left corner of your screen. When you do click on that menu icon select System Preferences from the drop down menu:


Then go into System Preferences and look for the pane (icon) entitled Universal Access 9_16_2012_10_06_45_pm.png

• Click on the Universal Access and you will see this view:


Under the Seeing tab, make sure Zoom is turned to Off

This should bring your enlarged screen back to its normal size.

You can now also click the Show All button located at the top of that window (on the left side) to return back to System Preferences main window.

From within System Preferences, select Displays and try selecting a lower resolution like 1280 x 1024 or 1024 x768 for example and see if selecting one of those resolution settings helps to reduce the size of your display window.

Please let me know if any of these simple recommended steps help.
If you have more questions, I will be glad to assist you further.

Setting password on OSX tiger

I taking it that you mean you want to change your password on a mac you have already logged onto. This is quite simple go to the apple menu which is located at the top left of the white menu bar, then go to system preferences and select network. Once network preference pane has come up click on the account called my account on the left hand side then on the right hand side there is a change password button, click on this and insert your Old password and then insert the new password in the New password box and then the new password in the Verify box. Then click the change password button on the bottom right. Hope this helps.

I have an eMac computer that is from a teacher's class. how can i change the platform to just one operator, me. It has a teacher and student way of starting up-thank you, Gary

You'll need to know the password to an administrator account. The teacher account is probably the administrator. Alternatively, you'll need the system disc(s).

Once you've started it up with an administrator account, click the Apple menu in the upper-left corner. Click "System Preferences". Then click "Accounts".

By the way, what version of Mac OS X do you have? It's probably either 10.3 or 10.4 (If it has 10.2 or lower, you really need to buy a Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" retail DVD and upgrade the operating system. In fact, I wouldn't use anything before 10.4.)

1. Anyway, click on System Preferences (showing "Accounts") again.
2. You'll need to click the lock near the bottom of the window and type in the administrator password again.
3. Look for the + and click it. This should allow you to make a new account. There should be an option to make it an administrator. Make sure you do so. Give it a password you can remember that has letters and numbers in it.
4. Log out (from the Apple menu).
5. Log in using the new account.
6. Click the Apple menu>System Preferences>Accounts again.
7. Click the lock again and type in your password.
8. Now click on the accounts you don't want. Then click the - (next to the +) and delete them.
9. You should be all set. There's an option to require a password when you turn on your computer or restart it. Or you can have it start up with no password.

Good luck and please let us know how it works for you. If it solves your problem, please rate me. If not, please post again and we'll help you through it.

The Safari browser on my EMaC is apparently

The first thing I'd try would be to delete its .plist settings file.

1. Click on Finder (the smiley Mac guy).
2. Click the "Go" menu at the top of the screen.
3. Click "Home". This will open a window showing your Home folder.
4. Double-click the "Library" folder.
5. Double-click the "Preferences" folder.
6 Look for the file called-> and drag it to the trash (or click once on it and press Command-delete).
7. Now run Safari and see if it works.

You can also probably (depending on the version of Safari):
1. Reset Safari from the Safari menu at the top of the screen *when you're running Safari*.'

If your operating system is Mac OS X 10.3 or earlier, upgrading to 10.4 will (in addition to lots of improvements) allow you to use a newer version of Safari.

Good luck and please let us know how well this works. Please rate me if this solved your problem. If not, please repost and we'll give further help.
