Mac Rumours forum post I have searched here and elsewhere and the only references I have found are people wanting to know how to open a second copy of the Terminal command line. I have the opposite problem: when you click on the Application icon in Applications -> Utilities, about 73 instances of Terminal all open at once. OK I don't know if it's 73 or 53, 123 - didn't have time to count them, but when you right-click the Dock icon the list of "Terminal - bash - 80x24"s goes off the top of the screen. The active one is about 8 up from the bottom of that list. Really odd. They all respond (thank heavens) to the Quit option on that menu. So what has happened? Looks like finger trouble, I'm sure, since the current owner of this machine is not exactly - ermm - a computer whiz-kid, and the previous owner was probably even less clued up. The current owner just renamed the user account and carried on (yes I know that is part of the problem and I can probably fix it by creating a new account and starting from scratch, but that is going to take time. For now I want the quick fix!) Where are the startup options for Application icons - you can't access them with a right-click, I discovered... not even once they are running.
