Thread: Preview questions, Panther..
04-06-2004, 12:03 PM #1Preview questions, Panther..
i am using panther on my imac and love it. I am still a very inexperienced mac user and have a few questions. How do you perform the mac version of a hard drive clean up ie. (old internet files, cookies, etc etc)? I am using preview to look at the pictures I upload from my digital camera but I cant seem to get the Preview program to be able to scroll through the pictures in large screen mode without closing the large window and then reopening it with a different picture from the folder where the pictures are stored. Win xp has a back and forward arrow that allows you to look at the pictures in full screen mode and navigate through the folder that you have the pictures set up in. I know my wording is ambiguous at best but as I said, I'm new to mac so dont have all the lingo down just yet..

repair permissions. After every software update, and about every 2 weeks: close all apps and log totally off. Log on, go in Finder, Applications. Utilities, Disk Utility. After the message -getting disk information- select volume (below the hard drive name -upper left corner). Just highlight it. Now look to the lower two things are there near the middle, verify permissions, repair permissions. Click repair permissions. Also make sure you run cron tasks Finder, Applications. Utilities Terminal type (switching to root - superuser) sudo sh /etc/daily > this needs to be done /weekly (instead of daily) and monthly. again with all apps closed. As to the pics, did you import them to iPhoto? That's what I do.. Welcome to Mac and the forums!

well as for the old internet files, caches, and all that, if u're using safari you can go to the Safari menu and choose "Empty Cache". or you could use a program called Cocktail, which can do a lot of that stuff for you, or also a lot of people suggest MacJanitor. you could find either of these at versiontracker.com or macupdate.com.

Also, to remove cookies in Safari, go to File>Preferences>Security>Show Cookies>Delete All.

Do any of yo know how to password protect certain folders so that if Im using a p2p or soemthing, they cannot open these unless they have the correct password?

ummm...filevault?...but I've been told not to use that...slows down everythng...cause it's encrypting it every time.....though I'm sure there are programs that do individual folders...without causeing so much downtime....
btw, I'm guessing your from Texas?..where in Texas?....I was born and raised in Austin....and still "live" there, though I'm going to school in Pittsburgh PA.

Yeah, I'm from San Antonio (about 60 miles south of Austin) I'm sure you know but for others that dont..I got up to Austin on a weekly basis to hang out with some friends and hit up the lovely Austin music scene. You're too far away from home IMHO..

I agree with Wapa18. MacJanitor is awesome. Everyone should use it
TylerMoney, I know what you mean about it being too cold on the East Coast.
Central New York gets really cold too. In fact, there was a freak snowstorm here last Sunday. It was bizarre."Time you enjoy wasting was not wasted" - John Lennon.
