That's how MAC works. When they download it goes automatically to your desktop. The only other way I know you can do it so it will go to a folder is to hold CTRL and click the link, it should bring up options like a right click on a PC.

Your keychain password was set by you when you got your MAC, unless it was previously installed. Try entering nothing - and hit enter. By nothing, I mean DONT TYPE ANYTHING in the password space.

Forgot iTunes details


I think the only help you can get, is from Apple. At least if you want to keep everything that was on your phone and in iTunes.
I think they will help you by resetting your password, that goes with your iTunes account.

What is key chain access on a mac


The key chain is used to store all of the passwords you have used on your mac so you don't have to keep typing them in. To view them, open keychain and type your admin password.

I cant not login in too my users i forgot my password


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

If you are unable to gain access via the password to login to your Mac OS X desktop, you are going to reset your password.

What you will need to do is use the Mac OS X restore (Disk 1) or the Mac OS X installation disk which came with your Macbook Pro.

Now perform this process:

* Insert your install disc
* Reboot your Macbook Pro

* Press the C key on your keyboard and hold until you see the white screen, grey apple, and eventually the spinning gear.

* Release the C key when you see the spinning gear

* When you reach the Mac OS X install environment, click past the language screen.

* From the Installer Menu bar select "Utilities" and then "Reset Password".

* Within the Reset Password utility, select the User Account you need access to.

* Reset the password.

* Quit the Reset Password utility when you have reset and confirmed the new password

* Quit the Installer and restart your Mac..

* At the log in window, enter your username and newly reset password. You should now be able to successfully log in. * I hope this helps.

Regards,

How do I unlock my macbook,I forgot my password


  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
  2. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue,
  3. Mac OS X v10.6 or later: Choose Password Reset from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.5 or v10.4: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.3: Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu.

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

One, try no password, leave it blank. Two, try the shortname ( the current logged in user next to the house ). Call and ask for a manager and ask for a discount. You can change the password, but you need the DVDs it came with.


Let me know, done it a million times.
