    Under utility, CONSOLE.
    It seems to be keeping all the detailed messages of everything I did on the computer. I tried clear display, but it seems to keep appearing again.
    i bought the computer on the 1st and has every ting recorded. It seems to me there is no way to clear this.
    I hate it, does it take up memory or anything?

    There is 4001 messages!

    I am so sorry.

    I went under Applications>Utility>Console.

    In console there are tons and tons of messages in there. Error messages, debugger, java, etc.
    I wanted to know, if there is a way to delete all of those console messages? I googled it and no one has mentioned how to delete it. OR maybe I am not allowed?

    Hope that made sense.

    its nothing to freak about and will take up minimal space. Now i have done a screen shot for you ...



    So if you hide it will hide all msg's or you can just clear your display ....

    Yes, I did clear display, but it reappears it. I'm just afraid it will take up my memory or something. Let's say 3 years down the road, I will have over a million messages in there. Only been 3 days I have 4001!

    Well by the look of it it will only hold 4000 and then move on. As a new log is produced the earliest will be taken off it. I only have 4000 in mine and my MB is coming up to a Yr old.
    My console takes up a whole 7MB of space. Nothing
    I really wouldnt stress about it. Msg's will always be there as if when anything happens on your Mac it is recorded there in someway ...

    EDIT: Sorry you did mention clearing display in 1st post .. My Bad
