What's up everyone!! So I finally took the plunge last night and pick up a new iMac. Super excited right now!! Im new to OS X and trying to figure out a couple of things. I did a search to see if I could find answers to some of my questions but no luck. Any help will be appreciated!! Questions Is there a way to remove that enter in your password feature every time you make changes on your desktop? It seems like whenever I move a file, work within the Hard disk, etc it asks for my login password before the change can be made ..can I disable this? Its pretty annoying How can I move files from the desktop into the hard disk without them duplicating? For example, I downloaded Adobe flash and when it finished it was on my desktop so I created a folder within the hard disk and moved it into there, but when I did that, the flash icon stayed on the desktop and a copy was made in that folder. Is there another way of moving files without them staying on the desktop? iPhoto I dragged all of my photos from my portable hdd into my mac. Where does iphoto come into play? When I opened it up, no photos showed. Do I have to drag them all in there also? Thanks again!!!!!!
