View Full Version : Getting rid of an unwanted folder

Nov 18, 2004, 09:43 AM

A while ago I used an app that automatically created a folder called Processed images on my desktop. I uninstalled the app and deleted the folder, but it keeps on coming back every time I restart my machine.

Does anyone have an idea how to get rid once for all of this folder? Also, every time I save an image it is automatically saved in the processed images folder.
Thanks for your help

From where (as in what app) are you saving the image?

Well If let's say I download an image from Safari, it goes straight into this folder. I also remember saving an image from another app (not sure it freehand) and same thing happened again.

As per Safari, goto Safari-preferences . Under general tab, there would be something like 'save to desktop'.
And as per the reappearance of the folder after you log in, goto your startup items, under system prefs-accounts. You may be having that app in your login items. If yes, then delete it.
