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.

Forgot startup password for vizio desktop

Hi Karra, Start your mac. Insert the install disc that came with the mac and press Restart. As soon as the window goes black push and hold the c-key untill the Apple sign appears. Loading could take a couple of minutes so be patient.
After a while a screen to choose your language. After that the Installer appears to install the Operating System. Avoid this. On top you see several pop-up menu's. Click the far right one and you'll see Change password You can reset a new password here. Hope this works. Good luck.

Is it possible to change all passwords on an iMac at the same time?

Hi David,

Unfortunately, passwords are like keys, you do not really want to have the same key for all your locks,; car, house, work, garage etc...
yes, it would be convenient, but, should you lose that one key, you could not get into anything... and if it's stolen, you lose everything...

same thing with computers.. you really must have different passwords for different services, like login, eMail, server, websites, eBay, Amazon, Banking... THere is an excellent utility call the Keychain that can store these passwords for you and your main login password can unlock that keychain..

Make the effort to either learn them by using a method that makes sens to you like: area code and service name ( 212Amazone, 212eBay, 212eMail, etc...) that way you can easily remember things and it's sort of secure..

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.

I purchased a power pc power mac g5 computer from ebay works fine it runs osx leapord 1.5 i cant install anything because a aminstrative password is required i dont know it they didnt send it and i have no...

I know it's a bit late to say - but when you buy from ebay always make sure you get the installations disks that came with the Mac.
You'll have to buy yourself an installation disk (if you are in the UK you can get them cheeper than from Apple at they are standard OS installation disks (Ie. they don't include the iLife set but they do incude Safari & Mail and the other basic bits and bobs). You can get the Snow Leopard disk very cheaply from them or from Amazon.
It's much easier with the disk than the other way without.

Mac books have a key chain to remember passwords... do regular pc have

if you are talking about websites, then using firefox allows you to remember passwords( via tools --> options --> then security; saved passwords)
whenever you go to a website and enter in a password, it will ask if you want to add, then on top of that you can enable a master password to protect that information from showing when you immediately access the particular site.
