If it concerns files you can simply leftclick once on the file to select it and than press the Delete button and it will be moved to your trashbin. A rightclick on a file also provides a menu where you can select to delete the file. Rightclick on your trashbin and you'll find the option to empty it. If you want to avoid using the trashbin but directly delete files, press shift and delete on the selected file. Be aware, by using shift and delete you cannot retreive the file, by using the trashbin you can restore accidently deleted files.

Please let me know if this solved your problem.

How to uninstallget Genio off my computer


Try using "AppCleaner" - a free utility that will remove all of the files associated with the Genio. Once AppCleaner is installed all you need to do is drag and drop Genio icon onto AppCleaner. If you've already trashed Genio you could reload it and then use AppCleaner or search all files (including hidden ones) with Genio in their names and trash those.

I bought an imac g 3350 . never had a mac before


Download your program. Make sure it is for YOUR OS. A .dmg should appear on your desktop when it is finished. Double click that. It should open a file with an application icon and a drive icon on the desktop. Open your applications folder from your hard drive, then drag the application icon to that. Eject the drive icon from the desktop by dragging it to the trash.

"The Uninstaller Apple forgot!"

I strongly recommend using AppCleaner. This wonderful application deleted the application and all its related contents anywhere on your drive just by dragging and dropping the application to the trash using the Smart Delete feaure.
Should remove AppleWorks and any other applications you'd care to quickly and completely.

Can't click and drag


I suspect you have a wireless mouse. When the batteries get low in an Apple wireless mouse, one of the prime symptoms is that click works but drag doesn't, or vice versa. Replace your batteries.

Can't Delete Files From Global MP3 Player with Mac OSX


When moving an item to the trash, it actually is just in a hidden ".Trash" folder on that disk, so no space is actually freed up. Can you try hooking the drive back up and then emptying the trash?
