How to delete multiple emails on mac air


Two options for Deleting multiple mail messages:

1. The video below shows how to delete a single mail message. To delete multiple mail message you would do the same thing except to delete several mail messages that are in chronological order you would select the top message...press and hold shift....and scroll down to the last message you want to delete and click on that message which will highlight all messages in between the firs and last message you selected. Release the Shift Key. And Delete.

2. To delete multiple messages that aren't in chronological order click on the first message you want to delete. The press and hold the Option Key (Windows Key if you have 3rd Party Keyboard) and select each message you want to delete and it will highlight all those messages individually. After you select all messages you want to delete let go of the Option Key and click on the Delete icon in the mail menu bar.

Important:
This places the deleted emails in your Trash folder within mail. To permanently delete the messages...Right Click on the Trash Icon or hold down Control and then Click on the Trash Icon and select Erase Deleted Items from the drop down menu and they will be permanently deleted and won't take up space on your hard drive.

My iphoto icon on deck has a ciricle with a line though it which means no. I can not open iphoto. it states it could be damaged .


Hi there, there is a easy fix to this problem. What you are first wanting to do is to make a backup of your iPhoto library. The default place is User(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ iPhoto Library. What you are going to want to do is right click the iPhoto library and select duplicate. Then just click and drag that new iPhoto library you just made to the desktop. Now what you want to do is to install iLife again. Just insert the iLife disk and follow the on screen instructions. Once that is done you should be able to open iPhoto again. If for some reason when you open iPhoto and your photos are not there, then close iPhoto and you want to place the new iPhoto Library that we put on the desktop into U ser(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ Now drop the iPhoto Library and make sure that it is called iPhoto Library and not iPhoto Library Duplicate, if that is the case then right click the file name and click get info, then just rename it iPhoto Library. Now you are done, open iPhoto and you should have all your photos again.
If for some reason this still does not work, then once again close iPhoto, this time we are going to open it agin but while we open it we are going to hold the option key down too. A menu should pop-up asking you what library you would like to use, all you want to do is select the one that says is located in User(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ iPhoto Library.

I hope this helps you, Justin

No applications are working. How do I fix this?


It sounds like the files were deleted off the hard drive or moved to another location. Normally, when you have icons on the desktop they are known as "Shortcuts". What this means is the icon is directing the computer to the real location of the file.

So for example lets say you install a program like "Winamp" (A Music Player). When the program installs it actually puts the files for the program in a folder such as "C:\Program Files\Winamp\Winamp.exe" . Then it puts an icon on the desktop that points to that location. So when you end up with a question mark next to the icon it usually means the icon is pointing to an incorrect location and the file it is looking for does not exist there.

Like I said before a) it was deleted b) it was moved.

I am going to assume it was deleted as I don't see you randomly moving files around. You basically are left with no option, but to reinstall the software that is not working. If you do not have the original disc's or downloads, you could try a "System Restore", but that may not work. Below are instructions to do a System Restore in Windows XP & Windows Vista (not sure which you are running).

System Restore For Windows XP


System Restore For Windows Vista

As I said, if none of this works you basically need to reinstall the software.

Help wanted to get rid of Blue Screen on my Mac G4 laptop


Hello
If your hard drive is full, then it can cause this problem. To empty the hard drive, deleting the files that you don't want anymore, you will have to use another Mac, and plug a firewire cable between the two.
Then press on the "T" key on your G4 (for target mode). You should see on the other mac's desktop your hard drive and everything in it. You can use the free software Disk Inventory X to get rid of the files that take too much space and that you don't need.
If that's too complicated, you can also try to boot the mac holding the shift key at startup, that will deactivate extensions and you will probably have access to your desktop. Then empty files and reboot.
Hope this helps

Pictures uploaded from my cellphone and are saved on my desktop


First close any application that you may have open that used the photo...or that you used to view or edit the photo.
The problem could be that the application or photo was in use. Usually it won't allow you to delete a file that is in use by a program.
Once you are sure that the applications are closed. then click on the photo (if this is a Mac) and press and hold down the the apple command key (one on each side of your spacebar) then hit the delete key. The item should disappear...(it moves it to the trash)
Or you can just drag and drop it to the trash.  
Hope this helps.  Have a great day!

Stickies


There are two different Post-It like programs for Mac. One is for use in your Dashboard only, the other is for your desktop.
Go to your Applications folder and look for "Stickies", if it's there then all you'll have to do is click it to turn it on or drag it to your Dock to give yourself a shortcut (a Dock based shortcut not the same as an "alias").
If you have managed to delete the program "Stickies" from your Applications folder, you can use your Mac OS X disk to replace it, or you may also copy it from another Mac.
For more direct help you may contact me by phone.
