Out of the blue, whenever I try to move anything to trash on my Mac, it asks for my password. When I type it in, the item is automatically removed. I'm using OS 10.8.4 on both the Mac and on my MacAir. I don't have the problem on the Air. There the item is moved to the trash icon where it sits until I remove it. That's the way it always was on the Mac until recently. I've tried to find settings that would allow me to use the trash the way I'm used to but can't. I know it's not a real big deal, just annoying that I have to put in my password to trash anything. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
