What is this, and even more important; why do I have it?
-KJ (new to Mac...)
What's a taskbar?
The task bar is the thing at the top of the screen, you don't need the eject option up there you can get rid of it by:
Hold the command key (Apple), click on the icon drag it out, release the button, release the command(Apple) key.
He means the menu bar. And that isn't a "close superdrive", it's an "eject" insert a disc and you will see its true meaning.
Menu bar or whatever it´s called. It´s the bar at the top with different icons in the right corner.
I´ve got an eject icon, that´s right, but if I leave the SuperDrive empty and click it, I get a drop down menu labelled "Close SuperDrive (F12)".
My question was; why has it suddenly appeared? I haven´t changed anything here?
It's a built in .menu file. Someone may have double-clicked the file, or enabled an option somewhere.
And now for the final question; How do I get rid of it? I don´t need it, and I don´t like my menubar cluttered.
As in my post above:
"You can get rid of it by:
Hold the command key (Apple), click on the icon drag it out, release the mouse button, release the command(Apple) key."
I believe a taskbar is what is at the lower right hand corner of Windows' start menu/application bar or whatever that would be called. And yes, just command drag the icon off of the menu bar.
Didn´t see that first post, saw this one, and it worked like charm! Thanks, W!
And as this is solved, a new problem... I made a tarball with all my documents (.tar archive) on my old laptop, and moved it via an external drive onto this PB. As I was trying to move it now, I got the "Something is using this file, are you sure you want to move it? This may cause problems with the application using the file."
I checked and rechecked, and nothing other than Finder was running. I restarted the computer, and still the same error. I thought what the heck, and pressed "Yes" to forcemove it, and Wham! The file is no longer in the old directory, and not in the new directory. I´ve checked the recycle bin, and no go.
What happened, and where is my work?
Wow, I can tell you are a recent switcher. From the "taskbar" to the "recycle bin".
Was your old laptop a Mac? I haven't seen any message like that on X (maybe it was in 9, but I haven't used 9 in FOREVER!!!)
Did you check what was visible or did you check all processes?
Yup. A recent switcher. I´m on Panther as stated above, and I have the Norwegian version, so I try to translate "on the fly". As long as you get what I´m referring to, it´s OK.
My old laptop was an IBM, also as stated above.
I did a ps -aux and a top to see if I could find any hanging apps, but no go.
Anyone have an idea?
