Drag the file you are trying to put into the dock to the right of the silver line at the right of the dock. The file you want to delete, let it disappear in the 'puff of smoke' and then go into Macintosh HD and find the file and drag it over the trash icon. I hope it works!


Thanks, Logan

I'm trying to remove an App from my Macbook. when I jiggle the Apps the App has no x in order to remove it


Click on the app and drag it to the trash can in the lower right corner of your screen. The app will remain there until you empty your trash. If you change your mind before you empty your trash can, just click on the app in the trash and drag it back to the file where you want it.

Trying to remove an app from my macbook. when apps are jiggling , the app does not have a x in order to remove it.


Note that you can remove the icon of an app from the dock by simply dragging it away from the dock, or into the Trash. The app still stays on your computer, usually in the Applications folder. If you no longer want the app, you can drag it to the Trash; or right-click and choose, "Move to Trash".

Your application also remains in the Trash until you choose to empty the Trash. If you decide you don't want to delete it, you can remove it from the Trash.

You won't be able to empty the Trash if the application is still open (many people believe they have quit the app when they click on the red dot in the upper left of a window; however, that usually only closes the window, but leaves the app running).

I need to remove items accidentally put in iBook trash! How do I drag them out of the trash?


Hello:
If you already emptied the trash, then you can not drag the items back out again - you will need to use some kind of undelete utility.

If you did not empty the trash, then you should be able to click on the Trash Can icon in the dock, and it will open in a new window and show you all the files inside. You can then drag them out of the Trash window and on to your desktop, or into another folder.

If you can not see the Trash Can in your Dock, or on your Desktop, then please leave another message....and ALSO in your message put what version of OS X you are using.

I will be checking this site throughout the day (today is Tuesday, October 29)

How do i remove skype from my laptop?


The short answer is: Drag the Skype icon in your Dock off of it and drop it - it will go *poof* and disappear. Then, drag the Icon for Skype from the Applications folder on your local hard drive to the trash bin on your Dock. This will effectively remove all of the application information from your computer minus some very insignificant preference files. If you need to know how to delete them, please reply and let me know! Further, if Skype starts up with your computer please let me know if you get an error upon reboot and I'll help you clean that up as well.
Thanks, and I hope this helps!

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.

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.
