    Does anyone know how I can remove one of the computers that I have currently listed in the "My Computers" List of Leopard's ScreenSharing.app??

    I am referring to the list of locally connected and Bonjour computers that appears when you launch the ScreenSharing.app manually by double clicking the ScreenSharing.app which is located in your System/Libraries/CoreServices folder on your Mac...

    See the screenshot below:

    Double click on your account's Library/Preferences/com.apple.ScreenSharing.plist. This will open the Property List Editor. Remove or add to the SavedComputers entry.

    Leopard Screen Sharing - How to remove a computer from My Computers List

    Hi plinden

    When I open the file com.apple.AppleShareClient.plist it opens with texteditor and I can't read the file.

    Do you know how I can launch List editor?

    Property List Editor is a part of the Developer Tools (I think it's actually now called Xcode Tools) which is on your install disk.

    That's the wrong plist file. Open com.apple.ScreenSharing.plist and look for SavedComputers.

    Sorry about the confusion with Property List Editor - installing the dev tools has always been the first thing I do so I forget what comes as standard.

    I can't find that file, the only apple share file that I can find is:

    com.apple.AppleShareClient.plist

    Have you seen any issue with copy and paste?

    I can't copy and paste from the mac to a linux server. I'm having this problem with screen sharing and chicken of the VNC.

    Look in your account's Library folder, not the system Library, eg. /Users/nicko97/Library/Preferences, not /Library/Preferences.

    I'd just like to point out, that's what I said in my first response "Double click on your account's Library/Preferences/com.apple.ScreenSharing.plist."

    Preferences specific to your account go into ~/Library/Preferences. System wide preferences go into /Library/Preferences.

    I'm not on my Mac at the moment so I can't check copy-and-paste. But I use CotV almost daily to connect to a Linux machine and haven't noticed any issues getting clipboard data copied across. With Windows <-> Linux via VNC, I do have problems.
