    I have my last.fm scrobbler hidden from the dock. I recently changed my password on my last.fm account and need to do so on the scrobbler, but I can't figure out how to do it. When I launch the app from the apps folder, the program runs but I don't have the menu items across the top and thus can't find the "Preferences" menu item.

    Is there a way I can unhide it so that I can access the "Preferences"? Is there another way to access the "Preferences"?

    Thanks for your help.

    In the Finder, right-click the .app and select Show Package Contents. Then navigate to Contents/Info.plist and open that in a text editor and remove the following lines:
    Code:
    <key>LSUIElement</key>
    <string>1</string>
    You may have to open Terminal and type "touch <full path of .app>" for the Finder to update it, and then relaunch the app.
