I've read that many people delete things to then go to the Trash some time later and then decide that they really don't need the trashed item any more.

Hi chas.

How is that easier than Windows?
If I delete something in Windows, it asks "Are you sure you want to move this file to the Recycle Bin?"
That's the same as Mac's 'Move to Trash'

Question Volume control on a MacBook Pro

Hi.

Is it possible to stop the 'popping' sound when you turn the volume up and down?

There is a visual display of the action and that's all I need.
