How to view full screen browser


In short, it's not built in to Safari. You can either install a plug-in for Safari or try a different web browser such as Firefox or Camino.

Some plugins that may help:
  1. Saft (http://haoli.dnsalias.com/Saft/index.html) adds a new preference pane in Safari called Saft, and two extra menu items under Safari menu, just above the "Preferences...", called "Full Screen" and "Max Screen".
  2. Megazoomer (http://ianhenderson.org/megazoomer.html) will install for any program (not just Safari for web browsing) and allows you to put any window full screen.
Other browsers to use instead of safari include:
  1. Firefox (http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/internet_utilities/mozillafirefox.html)
  2. Camino (http://caminobrowser.org/)
I believe both of those browsers allow for full screen functions.

I accidentally threw my safari icon in the trash and now i can,t get it back


Unfortunately, it wasn't just an icon -- it was your entire Safari application.
You can copy the Safari application from another Mac running the exact same version of the Mac OS as your machine, using a CD or USB stick.

Can I connect my apollo 2250 to my old imac?


OS X drivers for the Apollo 2250 apparently exist only in 10.5 and 10.6, both of which your iMac G4 is too old to run.
If you have this printer attached to another computer on your home network, you could activate printer sharing and allow your G4 to print to it that way.

I downloaded aoldesktop for mac and installed it. When I tried to make it my home page on safari and open safari I get server cannot be found. Help hollis


You don't use the AOLdesktop app.
To use AOL as your home page in Safari, use the following URL address
http://www.aol.com/
Once there, log on to your account and then in the Safari Preferences General Tab, click on "set to current page" in the home page option.

Painfully slow opening apps, especially Safari.


is your hard drive full?  if it is clean it out.  How much ram do you have...max it out.  This is an old machine and it's not very fast..it hasn't been made in four years or more.
what system are you using?  Maybe it's time for a faster computer or a faster computer.

Old IMac G4 , OS10.4.4, CPU speed 800 MHz; no Airport


I would get a vendor to do it because then the work is under warranty. It is simple enough to do, but covering bases with expensive things is best.

G4 problem


Hi, Try shutting the G4 completely down, waiting about 15 seconds, and then booting the Mac with the shift key down. That should clean up a lot, as it gives a safe boot. Then go to disc utilities and repair permissions. That might clean the whole thing up for you. If sounds like it's a Finder problem. If that doesn't work, boot from Disc Warrior or Tech Tools and run a few tests. Good luck!
