    Hey Guys

    It has been a while since I have been on here..

    I have let my MAC get so messy with little things.

    Got a few questions...

    1.How do I get ride of those little things up on my bar on top of the screen, right hand corner.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    2. Also everytime I open a FireFox window, it dosn't open up to the full size, how do I make it so when I open it up it maximises to full capacity.

    3. I have been searching a while but how do I use my Hotmail on Mail? Is this still not possible, is there a similar application to mail for mac, that Hotmail will work on?

    Looks like it's part of some monitoring software you have, one is definitely for displays. One to eject, a time machine, battery, etc one. Right clicking and going through preferences should let you hide these (monitor one) or remove them (third party).

    Create a feature request and send it to Mozilla.

    You can't use hotmail on anything but Outlook and through the web :)

    Let's get that MAC address up and running again.

    1) It depends on the application. Go into system prefs and look in the last row. You should find the app's setting in there so you can turn them off.

    2) This isn't Windows. It will only get as big as it needs to be.

    3) Hotmail sucks. Ditch it and use Gmail. It works flawlessly with Mail.

    Thanks for all your help.

    I can't ditch Hotmail, as I can't be bothered changing my email adress..I can't believe Mail!

    I can't get rid of the Eject button, it was from a software I downloaded Mp4-Mp3 Virtual converter

    It's not a Mail problem, it's a Microsoft forcing you into either Outlook or through their site.

    Can you set up a forward to another address? That way you can start using a better provider (i.e. Gmail) while allowing yourself to be reachable via your old hotmail address :?

    It's not Mail's fault. It's Hotmails fault for not supporting POP/IMAP.

    Still can't get rid of that Eject symbol, the software has long been gone but that is a remainder of it, that I can't get rid of.

    Reboot?

    I know for certain that eject icon isn't a software, but an OSX thing.

    With the eject icon have you tried holding down the command key, place pointer over icon click & drag it off menu bar then release keys ?

    I guess that depends on whether or not the program you're referring supports that key or not...

    Cmd+Delete=DELETED...

    If you mean in Finder, press Cmd+Delete to send stuff to the trash.

    That threw me for a little whiole (bought my MBP this month and still getting used to it).

    In regards to deleting...when working with text I can only delete using backspace. Is there an equivelent to a delete key that removes text after your cursor?

    Simply press the Delete key to erase text to the right of the cursor.

    I maybe being blind but the New MBP doesn't seem to have a delete key. That was the first thing I was looking for.:p

    To forward-delete on a Mac notebook you'll need to press the 'Fn' key + Delete (or backspace as you Windows folks insist on calling it :) )

    Sorry, I do not have a current Mac laptop so I had to look up a picture of a MBP. Just above the Shift key is the Return key. Above that is a wider key with a left pointing arrow. That is the Delete key. Pressing that key deletes one character to the left. To do what you want, press the Function key and then the Delete key to delete one character to the right.

    Cheers for info. It had been driving me a little mad. I know I should search the net etc beofre asking here but it is a only a quick question :eek:.

    Is there a keyboard shortcut I can use that would give me the same function as home and end key? Baring in mind I am on a new MBP.

    Cheers in advance (and sorry to OP for the thread hijack ;)).
