You don't use the AOLdesktop app.
To use AOL as your home page in Safari, use the following URL address
http://www.aol.com/
Once there, log on to your account and then in the Safari Preferences General Tab, click on "set to current page" in the home page option.

I am trying to play this Educational DVD that uses Safari to open it. As instructed I click on AmenuDisc1 web page (htm) file that used to take me to play screens for topics. However altho now initial


Safari doesn't actually open DVD's. Your DVD is read by your DVD program on the Mac and may contain hyperlinks hence the reason Safari opens and plays content. The content is actually online if it is using Safari not on the disc. You are on a menu page with the hyperlinks of a DVD ('a Menu Disc 1') and the Mac isn't opening the link. You can try downloading and installing Firefox as a different browser to rule out the browser's fault. The links on the educational page can be dead and don't link anymore? If the problem lies with the disc reader sometimes dust can cover the laser light used to read the disc and blowing inside by 'authorized dealer' may have stirred up said dust. Occasionally blowing in the side can dislodge a bit of dust and set the reader free. Try another disc in the reader and rule out the fault of the reader. If Firefox doesn't work, nor does clicking on the links of the DVD the fault is likely on the internet end of the DVD. .htm could possibly be having issues on the server end because as a hypertext link 'address' it is oldish vs html [and now html5!] and though not likely a problem MIGHT be but another browser should show that.

How do I find my home page?


Quit the browser by pressing Command + Q together. Then open the browser again. If that worked you should see your home page. If you want to get back to your home page quicker next time you can turn on the home button in the navigation bar. It's not there by default but you can add it.

It would be helpful to know if you are using Safari or Chrome or some other browser. My bet is on Safari so here's how to do that in Safari.

1. In the gray area next to the address bar, right click or ctrl + click this empty gray space and you will see an option to "Customize Toolbar..." Click on that option.
2. In this next window that appears drag the home button onto the toolbar.

Why when I open safari, do i get error 404(not found)1


Error 404 is for when the web page you are requesting is not found, this means that your connection to the site etc is fine but the certain page you are requesting if not available.

You will be fine to ignore this error and continuing to use the internet by entering a website or search term into the bar at the top of Safari, as shown in the image below.
0ab81ed5-40ca-4df0-b0e0-2c4e02269fc1.png

The error may be coming up as you have set your default page to a page that is no longer available, this can be changed by clicking on "Safari" in the top left of the screen then clicking on "Preferences..."

A new window will appear.

Enter the site you want to be the homepage when you open Safari in the location that says Homepage. You can enter what is shown or a page or search engine like "http://www.google.com".

Hope this helps.

How to delete genieo


If you value your privacy, and the stability of your computer, then don't follow any suggestions that include using the genieo adware uninstaller : it leaves active software behind.

The company know this, but seem unable or unwilling to resolve it.

Instead, try to carefully follow the instructions at

How to uninstall genieo from a mac


In finder go to Utilities, then Activity Monitor, then when you see Genieo select it, then select the RED quit button. It will ask you if you "really want to quit Genieo" then simply quit.


Then quit Activity Monitor.


After that, go into your Application folder and drag Genieo to the trash. Then empty trash.


If you are using Safari and it opens to the Genieo page, in the Safari drop down, select preferences, General Tab.


You can then see what is set as your Safari home page. If that page shows Genieo then change it. You may have to go within Safari to what page you want as a home first in order to make it your current page, then select Set to Current Page and that will become your web page when you first open Safari.


I do not know if this will remove all Genieo files. Hope this helps!
