    You may also be out of memory (or running low), have you checked the task manager to see if the pagefile and ram are almost full?

The "smoothness" depends on the speed of your CPU (Central Processor Unit), the speed and memory-capacity of your video-card, and what other "background" processes are competing for CPU cycles.

If you have a desktop computer, install a better/faster video-card.

How do i get icons at bottom screen in i mac


If you want to add the application icons to the bottom of the screen (or Dock) there are a couple of ways to do this.

1.) Open a window in Finder and go to 'Applications', simply drag the application you want to appear in the Dock toward the bottom of the screen and release when the app icon is where you want it to be.

2.) Launch the application you want to appear in the Dock. When the app is running, the icon will appear in the Dock on the right side, to make it stay there even when you quit the app, simply right-click (if mouse supports it) or control click and from the pop-up select 'Options' and chose 'Keep in Dock'.

You can move the icons around in the Dock by click and holding on them and dragging them around to the location you want... and to remove an icon from the Dock just drag it off the Dock into the main area of the screen and release.

Why is turntable skipping after motor replacement?


It doesnt matter which way it is plugged in. If the microwave has a guide roller (ring with 3 wheels), check the wheels to see it they are all intact and roll smoothly.

My youtube music and video is skipping


Check heat of system. Running too hot, it will skip.
Check video card driver. Make sure it is the correct one.
If none of the above, reload your operating system.

When are the spoilers parts used in airplanes?


Spoilers are used during landing in order to increase the drag of the wing and decrease the amount of lift. They have two functions during flight: make the airplane descend or slow the airplane down before landing. Also, during landing, the spoilers are used in order to keep the plane on the ground and improve the efficiency of the brakes.

My iphone had magnified the icons so that you can only see six at a time on the screen, how do i get that back to normal?

ZoomMany iPhone applications let you zoom in and out specific elements. For example, you can double-tap or use the pinch gesture to expand webpage columns in Safari. Zoom is a special accessibility feature that lets you magnify the entire screen of any application you’re using to help you see what’s on the display.
Turn Zoom on or off: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility > Zoom and tap the Zoom On/Off switch.
NOTE: You cannot use VoiceOver and Zoom at the same time.
Zoom in or out: Double-tap the screen with three fingers. By default, the screen is magnified by 200 percent. If you manually change the magnification (by using the tap-and-drag gesture, described below), iPhone automatically returns to that magnification when you zoom in by double-tapping with three fingers.
Increase magnification: With three fingers, tap and drag toward the top of the screen (to increase magnification) or toward the bottom of the screen (to decrease magnification). The tap-and-drag gesture is similar to a double-tap, except you don’t lift your fingers on the second tap—instead, drag your fingers on the screen. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger.
For best results using three-finger gestures, relax and let your fingers touch the screen naturally.
Move around the screen: When zoomed in, drag or flick the screen with three fingers. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger so that you can see more of the screen. Hold a single finger near the edge of the display to pan to that side of the screen image. Move your finger closer to the edge to pan more quickly. When you open a new screen, Zoom always goes to the top-middle of the screen.
