    Icon sizes in Finder windows

    One of my issues with Mavericks is that I miss the little slider in the lower right corner of Finder windows where I could easily change the size of icons in the window. This feature was very helpful when looking for photos in that folder. I could instantly make them larger to determine the...

    Trash freezes

    This problem just arose after I had to have my 4 week old computer's hard drive replaced due to a recall. I should have created an image, but thought since I didn't have a lot on it yet, I would just re-install from the disks that came with it. Since that re-install, there have been several...
