    Hi. Im new to Mac's.

    Yesterday i accidently deleted the All Movies & All Music from the Finder. Does anyone know how i can get them back?

    Also, this is hard to explain....but, is there any way i can get "inactive" windows to display like "active" ones? notice how the colour fades to light grey/white when inactive.

    That's the whole point of the color variation so you can tell what is and is not the active window.
