Is this another snow leopard thingy??
When you call up apps, there's a VERY FAINT scroll bar now. Scroll down in that window and you'll find the missing apps
In other words whereas you used to see all the apps in that apps window, now you only see the first so many and must scroll down to see the rest.
Bonkers and I've had phone calls/texts from apple owning friends about it ever since the release
thing is when I searched in the search function and tried to boot it from the help wndow it said it wasn't installed
have you found it?
I know what you mean, it's bizarre. I've told apple through the developers network but no one there tends to agree with me anyway
Yes it is plainly there - bizzare how it wouldn't boot through the help screen though
I feel foolish now
It's not you at all! Like I say, everyones been calling me about it. It's a poor UI design unworthy of Apple. Just not enough visual cues to the new design. The scroll bar doesnt stand out enough until someone tells you it's there!
like Douglas Adams said about the controls in one of the starships "When you try and operate one of these weird black controls that are labelled in black on a black background a small black light lights up black to let you know you've done it. What is this?"
Not sure what you lads are on about?
I've got no problem with mine. All my apps are there in the application finder window, the scroll bar on it is perfectly normal, Photo Booth is there in the list and when I search for Photo Booth via Spotlight (both on the Finder windows and off the menu bar), I can launch it from the results window just fine.
Tom macwave:... my Mac likes me best!)
The scroll bar on my macbook is ultra feint - I mean ultra feint - 'm not what I would normally call a novice at computer stuff or a genius but I can usually see a scroll bar and it was only when Keith told me about it that I could see it - maybe my monitor settings are different - I know from my astronomy photographs that monitors are ALL different and I produce what i think is a good image on one computer then get to work and blech!!
not sure why it wouldn't boot out of spotlight
Oh and another fantastic Mac feature I have just discovered having typed all this in caps lock by mistake is transform to lower case
everyday I find something new on my Macbook that makes me love it just that little bit more.
Vista and Windows 7
I wonder if it's possibly a UK thing, and if so, how could that be? It's not like that with us either, faint I mean...
But I'm also talking about a desktop and not a laptop.
You are now officially annointed as an official, certified Mac Bigot with all the rights and duties thereto. Keith will teach you the super secret handshake later!
BTW - attached is a screen shot of my application window. Note that it looks rather normal.
Unlike it's owner.
Tom macwave:... we will be restoring normality just as soon as we are sure what is normal anyway. Thank you…)
Ah but but but! you're not using the super secret uber brand new right click show me apps window solution! If you were, you'd be seeing what we mean
Ah no I am booting apps from the app folder bottom right where it comes up with the icons in a black window I cant seem to grab a pic with 'grab' unfortunately
Ummmmm...guys? If it doesn't work as well as the other way, why are you doing it? Uber super secret not withstanding...
I didn't realise that there was another way its from my dock
I wonder, is there a difference because of your being on a laptop and my/Tom (is he???) being on a desktop?
I shall slip quietly out of this discussion now. CLEARLY, it's miles above my head.
Ahhh... you mean dis one? (Shift-Apple-4 let's you select to get the piccie!)
Tom macwave:... missed it by THAT much!)
