    As the title says, whenever I reboot my mbp, outlook "loses" the information and I need to add the account details again. It does seem though that the mailbox and folders are "hidden" somewhere though, because once I've added the account info, the messages re-appear very quickly, in fact a lot quicker than when I first set up the account. A strange one methinks. So any ideas gratefully received. Thanks

    I recently upgraded to a 21.5 iMac, and I'm looking for a suitable wallpaper for it. Specifically, I'm looking for a black and white picture of a galaxy, but all my searches on Google only showed images that are too small for the iMac. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, Sparrowhawk

    Easter is coming. Woo hoo. What do you want to do that and do you have any special memory for the previous Easter?

    I just added a new ethernet printer to my local network. The printer grabbed an IP address from DHCP and works perfectly. All is well when accessing it as a printer. Let's say its short name is "wxyz". Now I want to access it's web page by pointing Safari at it. I can do it by typing in the IP address. How can I use something more symbolic like, say, "wxyz" or some simple variant that's easy to remember and type?

    I'm using a G5 ppc with OS 10.5.8. Recently when I booted up my Mac & many items were missing from my dock. I corrected the problem except for one item. This item produced a menu list in which you could pick any one of these items: Recent Applications, Recent Documents, Recent Servers, Favorite Volumes, & Favorite Items. It's been so long since I added it to the dock, that I don't remember how to put it back into the dock. If someone knows what this is, I'm going to write it down for future reference. I went to my backup drive to try and see what it is. It's there on my backup, but...

    Hello All, I recently purchased and downloaded the Short Oxford Dictionary which I'm quite familiar with; now I'm thinking about a good thesaurus but don't which is best for the iMac. Any suggestions for a truly excellent thesaurus, one that perhaps allows cross referencing? Thanks for your time, Sparrowhawk.

    Forgive the naivety of the question, but since I'm new to the iMac and Mavericks, I'm nearly ten years out of the times. (My last mac was the eMac running Tiger.) But what would be the best or reasonable program for copying unprotected DVDs? I've heard Toaster mentioned a lot, but it seems to specialize in copying VHS, which is not what I need. Thoughts and opinions are welcome. Thanks, Sparrowhawk

    The General tab of Security and Privacy has a setting to require a password e.g. 15 minutes after sleep or screen saver begins. I set this just in case my laptop falls into a evil doer's hands. The disk is encrypted. I assume that with all that, I am somewhat safe. But what I really want is just half of this or split it into two settings. I'd like "Immediately" if I put the laptop to sleep or close the lid but "never" if a screen saver comes up. The "logic" is that a screen saver comes up when I've left my laptop somewhere "safe" and I don't need the added protection. It is most...

    I've been using my Macbook pro as an "admin" account since 2009. Though I have set it up to sign in after sleep, and to sign in to admin any changes in apps, uploads, etc., I have been hearing a lot about having an admin account as a stand alone and actually using the computer in standard. I've read that you create a new admin, sign out of the other admin, sign into the new one, then change the old admin to "standard" in order to keep all your settings like the dock, apps, etc. My concern is, before I do this, is that correct? Will I sign into the old "admin" that is now "standard"...

    MacBook Pro 2013 OS 10.9.2 Safari 7.0.3 It was working last night. Shutdown overnight and started again an hour ago. I can view websites like this, but I seem to have lost stuff linked with images. Photobucket appears, I can log in and see the skeleton of the page but no images. I can see images in posts published by others, and also ones I have just posted from my desktop iMac. In websites I cannot add attachments. I can choose the picture, it's the right size, it loads and I can see it on the list, but if I try to attach it to a post, nothing appears. But I can post text....

    I often have documents open at smaller sizes that the full screen area. When I open many documents in an application I'd like them all to open at the full screen size. Does anyone know if there's a way to maximise all open document windows in this way? I know about tile and cascade - that's not what I'm looking for.

    I was on an Egyptair flight once that had a camera on board looking down so you could see the ground. It had an inflight screen alternated between the panorama shot and a statistics page. When we were coming into JFK over water you could see the boats chugging along and see their wakes. There was a large black tubular figure that seemed to be under the water ( no wake ). It looked kind of like a hand rolled cigarette. ;) The screen would flip to the stats page and come back and the shape would still be there. I wondered for a long time about what it could possibly be. I thought a whale or...

    I found a specific solution, not general. In Safari's preferences, find the item "Include Bonjour", tick it and - Lo! - a Bonjour menu appears in the favorites bar and a Bonjour folder appears in Bookmarks. Depending on version, there may be two tick-able items to control the appearance. And, yes, my new printer is there and reachable by a single click - when it's awake. I haven't figured out how to wake it up on demand. Not only that, my little HP wireless printer is on the list and I have seen its web server, too - something I didn't know existed! PS: In Safari's address box after...

    Maybe you will have to assign a manual IP to the printer? You would do that through the on-printer control panel, I suppose. You may also be able to change the network name for the printer in the panel - I have done that before with other printers.

    That link does open up. Well, it did after I ran "cupsctl WebInterface=yes". There's lots of stuff there that I have never been involved with, at least from that POV. But it doesn't do what I'm looking for. Let me try to rephrase. Without running a complete name server and incurring all that unnecessary complexity, how can I establish a nickname for the printer usable by every client on my local network? By usable I mean as the main component of a URL to get at the printer's web server.

    You are going all around Job's barn for nothing. Your printer supports Bonjour. All of your Macs support Rendezvous/Bonjour. If you have Windows machines on the network, then you may install Bonjour for Windows on your Windows computers.

    It's an OKIDATA C331DN with an internal web server for configuration, etc. It allows me to change its full name and short name. Currently they are OKI-WXYZ-E6C0F6 and WXYZ. My router is a Linksys WRT320N and I have reserved the IP address with a client name WXYZ. I'm running 10.9.2. If you mean /etc/hosts, I could add it there - but ideally the solution should apply invisibly to all computers. Similarly, in the Printers & Scanners pane, it's named WXYZ on the machine "iMac", where it was configured, and known as "WXYZ @ iMac" on other macs.

    Depends. What printer is and does the printer software that you use to configure it have a place to put a name into it? Did you go into your router and do a DHCP Reservation so it keeps the same IP address. Also some router's DHCP router pages let you name devices to IP addresses. Lastly you can add to your internal Host file. What version of OS X are you running? PS - You could also open System Preferences->Print & Scan pane and right click your printer and rename it there.

    The alternative is to leave them cluttering up my Inbox. I've always deleted messages once read, and never had a problem saving them for YEARS, so I don't get why this has happened now. Thanks Cheryl for clearing that up. I knew there was a setting somewhere in Preferences.
