1. How do you change the settings for safari pages to fill all available space when you click the green +? Can't see anything in the preferencs and only seems to bee safari that doesn't expand fully.

2. How do you change your 'short name'?

wondered if you could help, I downloaded that appzapper software to get rid of some stuff on my mac, when it downloaded a thing told me to drop the logo into applications folder, I did this and it copied across, however I can't open the program when i click on it or if i drop something onto it nothing happens. Do you know what I am doing wrong?
cheers

You have to do it manually - Safari ain't great.

Get firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

Have you got the AppZapper icon in your applications folder for you to double click? I'll assume you have otherwise you couldn't click it… Hm. I actually have no idea due to their only being one thing to copy across. Try it again with an overwrite?

Mac Mini? Around £400 for a speedy little box that will do what you've asked and more.

Hmm I don't like the way firefox looks older than safari/IE Sad Like some icons and login entry boxes don't look as sharp/futuristic, anyone know what I mean? Laughing out loud

I assumed he'd have a monitor etc. due to posting on here at this time of night…

Yeah, a £750 MacBook will sort you out perfectly. You'll find no apps on the market currently that it won't run (not to say they won't be a tiny bit sluggigh if you're running 12 pro-apps at the same time).

Haha yeah, Safari is most definately my default browser. Just click the green cross, then drag the bottom-right corner until you've got it as big as you want. From then on the browser window will be largest by default.

I wouldn't go back just because of the customer support I recieved at the Genius Bar in Brent Cross yesterday, the guys in there were fucking legends, checked over my machine (after the juice incident), installed my 3rd party hard drive and ram (even thugh they're not supposed to) and copied everything I wanted over from my old hard drive to the new. Now if you were to walk into Sony Centre you'd get 'erm we'll have to send it off, it will take 3 months and cost you £400'
