My husband got on my Macbook Air and pressed command + and a bunch of other stuff. Now my page won't stay still. It floats around as I use the mouse. The whole page moves.

What you have done is accidently magnified your screen slightly. To correct this hold down your ctrl key and move your finger on the track pad to the back of the track pad. Failing this restarting your MacBook Air should reset the screen to the default view. Hope this helps.

    My wife misunderstood the problem. It turns out I hit control-option-plus which magnifies the page and lets you move around to see various parts of the screen. In order to correct this all we needed to do was depress control-option-minus. Thanks for you help though. I was amazed when rebooting did not solve the issue!

okay going to have a bash at solving this but it's a little hard based on your description. I'm guessing this has Mavricks operating system installed.

  1. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Dictation & Speech, then click Text to Speech.
  2. Select the "Speak selected text when the key is pressed" checkbox. By default, speaking is enabled when you press Option-Esc. To choose a different key, click Change Key, press one or more modifier keys (Command, Shift, Option, or Control) together with another key, then click OK.

  3. To have your Mac start speaking, press the specified key. To stop the speaking, press the key again. If text is selected when you press the key, the selected text is spoken. Otherwise, available text items in the current window are spoken; for example, if Mail is the current window, an email message is read. If no text items are available, you hear a beep.
    So based on what you have described you have already found this option and set the change key to "command" + "e"
    Try rebooting then going to the text to speech option and attempt to set the key combination you want it to be. If this fails to change then try resetting the P-ram which should set it back to the default.

To create a new folder on the desktop right-click on the mouse and select New Folder from the drop-down menu.
If you do not have a mouse connected, press the control key while clicking the desktop background, and select New Folder from the drop-down menu. The folder should appear near the area of the desktop you clicked with 'untitled folder' highlighted in light blue. You can now type a name for your new folder. Press return/enter when you are done naming your folder.

Hi,

Follow the steps below and it should solve your mac problem..

  1. Disconnect any devices connected to the computer including printers, hubs, and third-party keyboards or mice, and test the computer again by trying to turn it on.
  2. If you're using a MacBook or MacBook Pro, check the battery level. Press the small button on the battery or on the side of the computer. You should see lights indicating the battery's level of charge. If you see just one light blinking, the battery needs to be recharged. Use the fluorescent pen computer with the adapter connected to recharge the battery.
  3. Unplug the power adapter from the electrical outlet and from the MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro. Wait one minute. Plug it back into the wall first, then to the computer. Make sure the electrical outlet is working by plugging in another device (such as a lamp). When you plug the adapter back into the computer, the PowerBook G4 Battery 15" power adapter LEDs should light up green or amber.
  4. Inspect the MagSafe port on the computer for debris, such as metal stuck to the magnet in the port, which might prevent the connector from seating properly. On the adapter side, look at the DC connector for dust or other debris and check whether pins are missing, bent, or stuck down. If you find any of these to be true, see Apple Portables: Troubleshooting MagSafe adapters for instructions on cleaning the adapter.
  5. Make sure you are using the adapter that was designed for your computer. If you aren't sure or if you need a new adapter,learn which adapter is appropriate for your computer.
  6. Press the control key, the command key, and the sony vgp-bps13a/b battery power button simultaneously and hold for three seconds to try to restart the computer.
  7. Reset the PRAM. After pressing the power button, hold down these keys simultaneously: Command-Option-P-R, until you hear the startup chime at least one additional time after the initial startup chime.
  8. Reset the SMC for the MacBook And MacBook Pro by removing the AC power, removing the sony vgp-bps13 battery and then holding down the power button for five seconds. On the MacBook Air, press (left) Shift-Control-Option along with the power button once. Note: You must use the keys on the left side of the MacBook Air keyboard.
  9. If you recently installed additional memory, make sure it is correctly installed and is compatible with your computer. Remove the new memory to see if the computer starts up properly without it.
  10. If you are still unable to start up your computer after trying each of these steps, schedule a service appointment with either an Apple Retail Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
Regards,
Ron

My MacBook Pro is unresponsive. I can move the cursor around, but when nothing happens when I tap the touch pad.


If this is a brand new macbook and you have not been familiar with them before....be aware that the whole touchpad is clickable by pressing it down. You can also go into your settings, under the mouse applet and choose to enable the tap to click rather than pressing the button.
