Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop

Can not open desktop icons.

To open any icon on the desktop, I  must go to dock and then the document fold, then to that icon. I can no longer double click anything on the desktop to  open as I had been doing.

    I can now open my desktop icons by going to file and then open. I still can not open the icons directly by clicking on them. This is a little quicker.

Go into your Utilities folder and open Disk Utility. Select your Macintosh HD in the pane on the left, then select "Repair Disk Permissions". Once the process has completed, try rebooting and see if it resolves your issue.

I lost my web browser. how do i get it back


The standard Mac browser is called Safari. You can find it in the Applications folder on your MacBook.

Open a Finder window by double-clicking on the hard drive in the upper right corner of the desktop. You should see several folders in this window, including Applications, Library, System, and Users.

Double-click on the Applications folder. Scroll down until you find the Safari icon which looks like a compass. If you click on this and hold the mouse button down, you should be able to drag it to the Dock on the bottom of your screen. Hold it over the space between two other icons, and when they move apart, release the button. This will add it to your Dock.

From there, you should be able to simply click on the icon to start the browser.

This method will work with whatever application you want on the Dock.

My Document Folder has disappear from Dock.....I was not able to put it back. I tried to drag the document Folder icon in, but it does not work. What am I doing wrong?


You should be able to drag the Documents folder from a Finder window to the Dock.

Open a Finder window (click on the desktop, then hit Command-N). On the left side, go to the Places item (click the arrow on the left to expand it). Select your user name. In the window, you should see all the folders in your home folder. Click and drag the Documents folder down to the right side of the Dock -- to the right of the dotted line, before the Trash.

If you hover over the other folder icons, you should be able to move the pointer in between them. Once they split apart to open up a space for you, release the mouse button.

You cannot drag the little icon on the left of the Finder window (under your user ID) to the Dock. It has to be the regular folder icon on the right side of the Finder window.

No audio output in my computer


Run windows update, then follow the directions below.
First verify you see a small sound icon in the Systray . If this icon is missing follow the below section
1. Open the Control panel
2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.

My mac book pro now has two safari icons. one on the dock and one on the screen. i can't get rid of one of them, please help.


If you want to get rid of the Safari icon on your dock:
just click on the Safari icon and drag it away from the dock, then let go of the icon.
It should just disappear.

If you want to get rid of the Safari icon on your screen (I'm assuming on your desktop):
-open a new Finder window (Finder> New Window)
-click on the Safari icon on your desktop and drag it to the Finder window, where it says "Applications", then let go of the icon
- it should disappear from your desktop

I want to scan a document to the computer using my HP psc 1315. When i press the scan button, it runs up like it is going to make a copy or print a document. What am I doing wrong?


hi Heims,
The best way to do a scan with this psc is to do it from the software on your Desktop.
When you installed the printer the software will have put an icon on your desktop such as HP Solutions or similar. If you double click this icon it will bring up a panel where you can select to scan a picture or document etc.
Do the scan from this panel and it should all follow from there.
If you don't have an icon for HP on your desktop, open Programmes, find the HP printer programme and double click it to open the panel.
You can also click on the program and drag it to your desktop which will create an icon on your destop for you.
Good luck

Hard disk icon disappeared from desktop


To add the hard disk icon back onto your desktop, first click the "Finder" button in the dock. It is the dark and light smily face icon at the end of the dock.

Next, click the "Finder" menu item at the top of the screen and then "Preferences". In the "Finder Preferences" window that opens, click the "General" button. From there you can select what system items appear on your desktop. You can click "Hard disks" to re-add the hard disk icon.
