I assume by question 1 you are referring to Word. You just right-click a word that's spelled wrong and click 'add to dictionary'.
By question 2, are you talking about Safari? If so, and if you want to get rid of the ones on your bookmark column below your URL address, just drag them off the column and onto anywhere else on the screen.
Hope this helps, Ronald.
Thanks for this. The spelling problem has been sorted thanks to earlier advice, but I'm still in trouble with favourites. At the risk of being boring I'll start again fropm the beginning.
When I started to set up this computer I successfully imported my address book from my PC. I tried to import the favourites folder but that didn't work so someone advised me to try with just the file. I did that (via burning it on a CD) and having reached this machine dragged it to Library, where there is now a file "Favourites.html" in the documents folder. Clicking on this will open all my old favourites.
At the same time there is now an entry in Safari under Collections labelled "Favourites" and clicking on that brings up "Favourites.html" under Bookmarks. Clicking on that also brings up all the old bookmarks,
All the links work, but the open file fills the whole of the screen so that there is no way I can get at it to modify it. If I try to drag an item it merely operates the link! I suspect that my original error was dragging the file to Library instead of Safari, but before I start again I'd like to be reassured that this is the answer!
Apologies again for being so long-winded.
