It appears the application was deleted or has become corrupted. The dock is just a shortcut, but if youre running 10.4 go to  the spotlight search window on the top left, try a search for the application.


Hope this helps.

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.

I cant connect to safari or itunes in imac OS X. A question mark symbol appears in both icons, I am able to connect to internet via windows lap top however.


I am taking it when you talking about icons it is the ones in the dock. What I think is happening is these icons have lost their association with the relevant applications. To get rid of the icons click and hold down the icons in the dock and then drag them onto the desktop this will delete the icons not the applications from the dock.

Now go to your applications folder and check that itunes and safari are in the folder. Once you have found them just single click on them and then drag them onto the dock. This should correct the problem.

If the applications are not in the folder you will have to download them from apple site again and reinstal them. Then you can use the method above to put the icons back on the dock.

Hope this helps.

System Preferences won't launch from apple menu or dock.


This just indicates that the dock icon can not find the finder preferences folder, just delete the icon from the dock. Then go to your applications folder find the system preferences and just drag it onto the dock that will fix it.

My Appleworks icon at the bottom of the screen is missing. I don't know what happened. How do I get it back?


First and easiest solution is to start the program from your application folder. The icon will re-appear in the dock. Now you either CTRL-click on the icon and select "keep in dock" (or simmilar, I'm on german OS) or you drag the icon to a different location in the dock which will also keep it there.

Have you tried repairing disk permissions? Go to the Utility folder in Applications and start up Disk Utility. Click on the second icon at the top left, then click on Repair Permissions. Repair Disk at the bottom far right will be grayed out.

If that does not correct the problem:

Quit AppleWorks.
Go to your user/Documents folder, and remove the AppleWorks User Data folder, put it in the trash, and empty the trash.
Do the same to your user/Library/Preferences/Appleworks folder
Do the same to the com.apple.appleworks.plist
logout and log back in as the same user. (not really necessary but I like an almost fresh start)
Open Appleworks, and make a NEW document and try to save it.
Open an existing document and try to save it.

If either of these will not work, let me know.

The font size on my HP Pavillion N5445 is too large. When checking the text size, it is already on smallest and is still too large.


Are all fonts too large or just icon fonts?

You could reset the screen to a higher resolution. Please note that everything will appear smaller including webpages and desktop icons.
Click Start\Settings\Control Panel
Then Click Display
When the box opens click Settings
When the new window opens you will see an adjustment called "Screen resolution" and a slider marked 'more' at one end and 'less' at the other.
Most modern monitors are set to 1024 by 768 pixels or above. Try moving your slider to a higher setting then click Apply\Ok
