    Hi all-
    I purchased a new macbook about a week ago....for some reason it did not have front row on it, even though it was supposed to. I have called apple several times and they keep telling me different ways of re-installing from the hard discs that came with the mac but it does not seem to be making any difference in bringing front row out.
    Does anybody have any suggestions?
    Thx!

    Do you mean hitting command escape while the installation discs are in my drive?

    I'll be damned, I guess I do have front row on my computer! Is there actually an application file I can find that can directly open front row or is that the way to do it when I want it opened.
    Thanks for the quick advice!

    No, there is no application file for you to click to open. Use the keyboard shortcut or your remote to activate it.
