safari help - dumb newbie question
- Member Since
- Jun 13, 2008
I'm a longtime PC/linux/unix user (ex EE,- read not technically inept) performing phone support for a friend 1000 miles away who is running safari on mac osx v10.5
Somehow what I think she has done is either deleted the icon or the link attached to the icon for safari from the desktop - she says that the icon is still there but has a question mark over it?? - can someone tell me how she can fix this?
Thanks for any help...

If she accidently deleted Safari (not just the ICON but the program) it will have to be re-installed from her disk set that came with the Mac. An ICON with a question mark over it means it can't find the program. It's possible she may have somehow moved the Safari files, but that's unlikely. Tell her to re-install Safari from her disk set - or she can download it direct from Apple and install it that way.
