Why when i try to open (open with...) an html file, there are two versions of TextEdit available? There is a 1.6 and 1.5 version!

2. Yes the store might have "upgraded" it.

3. It should be in the mail folder when you click on the mounted (on the desktop) hard drive.

One thing. To reset the contextual menu items in OS x just open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app and put the code:

Code:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
Then click the 'return' button. Close Terminal when you get another Terminal propt. This will mean the reset has finished.

The use Spotlight to find the two Textedit applications. One might be in a cloned backup, so check please Hence the contactual reset I wrote about will fix that setting.

I used spotlight and the other version of text edit is located in the previous system folder. So u say i should delete all the data in that folder?

Regarding the contactual reset, what exactly will it do i haven't understood... sorry :eek:

You can delete the entire Previous System Folder. It would have to be old, because neither Snow Leopard nor Lion creates those folders, since they do not have the Archive and Install option. That folder contains a previous Leopard OS install, most likely, and you will not have need of anything in it.

Ok, supposing that in the beginning the iMac had Leopard installed and when i bought it they installed Snow, can an OSX upgrade be a disadvantage to the speed of the new system (Snow Leopard in this case) or can it creat any other kind of issues?.
I mean is it better to make a good clean install of SnowLeopard?
I ask this cause as i have stated in the past i seem to be having some strange issues...
