Hi When you have started your computer press command (apple key) and F for making a search. Type "appleworks" in the search field. Look at the list that appears to find your software. Once You find it create a new "Alias" and put it on your desktop. -or you can find the software in the "Applications" -folder.

I am working on a Mac 10.5.8 imac computer. I have used appleworks forever and dont want to let it go. EVERY time I start Appleworks 6 from the doc it crashes. I can open AW from another document but...

Appleworks is now a discontinued product and has been replaced by iWork. Its best if you start to learn how to use iWork instead since applework documents will have very limited compatibility.

I have many files in appleworks from a early version (10.6.4. which ran on an os 9 platform. I purchased a new i mac and can't open these files with snow leopard 10.6 using i works.

According to Apple, iWork can handle AppleWorks files
If you still have access to your OS 9 machine, make sure you've updated to the latest version of AppleWorks.

How do I uninstall AW6 from my iMac? What are the steps to finding all the forks? Original disc/package was apparently lost during a move. I'm giving my iMac to my daughter prior to buying a new iMac...

"The Uninstaller Apple forgot!"

I strongly recommend using AppCleaner. This wonderful application deleted the application and all its related contents anywhere on your drive just by dragging and dropping the application to the trash using the Smart Delete feaure.
Should remove AppleWorks and any other applications you'd care to quickly and completely.

My Appleworks icon at the bottom of the screen is missing. I don't know what happened. How do I get it back?

First and easiest solution is to start the program from your application folder. The icon will re-appear in the dock. Now you either CTRL-click on the icon and select "keep in dock" (or simmilar, I'm on german OS) or you drag the icon to a different location in the dock which will also keep it there.

Appleworks has stopped working

Have you already tried using Disk Utility and or repairing the permissions?

Let me know if you need help running them.

Have you tried repairing disk permissions? Go to the Utility folder in Applications and start up Disk Utility. Click on the second icon at the top left, then click on Repair Permissions. Repair Disk at the bottom far right will be grayed out.

If that does not correct the problem:

Quit AppleWorks.
Go to your user/Documents folder, and remove the AppleWorks User Data folder, put it in the trash, and empty the trash.
Do the same to your user/Library/Preferences/Appleworks folder
Do the same to the
logout and log back in as the same user. (not really necessary but I like an almost fresh start)
Open Appleworks, and make a NEW document and try to save it.
Open an existing document and try to save it.

If either of these will not work, let me know.

Typing lag

I dont normally work much with mac's, but are you able to type fine in office- word for example? Is the computer slow normally, even without running programs? What it could is that you have to much stuff on your computer taking up space. Try to put all your photos on dics or on an external hard-drive and then get rid of them off yr computer, also get rid of any music files that you may have stored- have them on CD's as well. This should fix the problem, but if not, uninstall any unessesary programs. Hope this can help... be interseted if it does... get back to me if you can!

Appleworks 6

It appears the application was deleted or has become corrupted. The dock is just a shortcut, but if youre running 10.4 go to  the spotlight search window on the top left, try a search for the application.

Hope this helps.
