    I accidently moved Iphoto photobooth and pretty much all my important apps. into the trash but im not sure how to take it out. When i search "Trash" I get choices between "Full Trash" and "Empty Trash" ANd ive clicked not sure how to take them out.

    P.s. Whenever i click the application it says "You cannot open application '(enter application name here) because it is in the Trash.

    Just drag them back to the Applications folder.

    DO NOT EMPTY TRASH!

    If you already emptied your trash, you may have to reinstall OSX to get the applications that come with it back. Other applications will have to be installed again.

    Are the apps still in the trash? Or did you in fact empty the trash?

    Click on the trash can on the dock.
    What do you see?
    If your apps are there, iphoto, photobooth, any other you deleted, select them all and drag them back into the Applications folder.

    If there is nothing there, you will probably need to reinstall OS X to get them back, it's the easiest way.
