The arrogance of Apple is amazing in itself but its failure to recognise that its this attitude that sent it broke the first time will ultimately result in a repeat of history.

Why not use the standard keyboard? Why not end the war with Flash? Why not just get the company out of the way of the customer and stop attempting to be 'mother'. February 11, at AM. Ginger said….

Happy: That selection model works the same on a Mac, though it requires that you either be in List or Column view not icon view. Select the first file with your pointer, hold down the shift key and click another file in the Finder and all the files in between those two points will be selected. You can also select individual files by holding Command down while clicking files. If you are using icon view, then you'll need to click and drag to make a selection.

Personally I always view the finder in List view - much easier to sort that way. Hope this helps You just saved me so much frustration you can't believe it. I own an iMac and purchased the extended keyboard just so I could get both keys.

How To Disable Annoying Backspace Delete Button On Keyboard

As I've said before, I love the simplicity of Time Machine , though presenting an error message like this is not very helpful. Something - anything - to indicate what went wrong would be a good idea. I accept that you don't want to scare off the non-techies with a detailed error message but having a little "more" link that described what the problem is would have helped. Rather than investigate I decided to go with the flow. I clicked the OK button and then told Time Machine to back up now.
