Hope this helps! I too much prefer having Dashboard as the old styleNow I just came from Leopard on my old Mac and now have a new iMac with ML of course. Now in 10.5 the Dashboard appeared over the top of what ever programs you had running. I liked this as you could say use the calculator and still see numbers you might be working on. Now with Mountain Lion (and I like Lion) it appears from the side with a plain back ground.
Can it be changed so it was like before in Leopard?
Yes, but not without making your computer very insecure and wide open to malware -- not to mention making "Accidental deletion" of critical files very easy.Currently I'm using OS X 10.8.2. When I install an application, there's always a small windows and ask me to enter my password. Is there a way to disable this?
Yes it should. Finder is really terrible. The only thing that i feel is way better in windows (explorer).Small detail, but when you are scrolling in Finder window (eg Downloads folder) in List View, with lots of folders & sub-folders, when browsing these sub-folders, opening/closing them shifts the view of the Finder window back to top..
Its irritating as you must scroll back down to that particular folder again you were recently viewing..
Finder should just close the current folder, as it usually does.
