 - I have an older MBP with SL.  When I try to google, there is a continual overstrike on the first letter I enter until I press the enter bar on the trackpad.  Then I can type.   This is not a typeover problem where an existing line of type is deleted by new typing.  I've read about that online and the fixes for that don't solve my problem. This is only the first letter entered.    - In Word or a textedit, if I highlight something and try to delete it, nothing...
Thanks, I was hitting the up/down arrow on the second line: 'Where:'  
Tallest Skil,     I take it from your "Please tell me you're not referencing this:" that I am somehow in error. Yes, I am referencing the first dialog box in your post, but I don't understand why not.  I just want to be able to save a file where I want to and not just where Apple says I have to.   I am unaware of the second dialog box in your post. I see that it shows 'New Folder'. How do I access that dialog box? Would that give me the ability to save  where I...
Preview, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, whatever I try to save.   And please, no more digs at me. Who are you to judge me? I'm not complaining; I'm asking for a solution.
TextEdit, TextWrangler, MS Word ...
Mr. Me,   Your post is evasive and insulting. You evidently didn't try to understand my question or are just being obtuse. I wasn't saying that this was a new restriction. I was just telling what OS I'm using when I mentioned SL.    I am precluded from saving to the folder that I want instead of the folders Apple offers -  no matter what restrictions Apple had in prior OS's. I was asking if anyone had a solution - a work-around.  If you can't offer a solution,...
Previously, in a thread I can't find, I asked about 'Save As' dialog boxes and the ability to save where I want to and not where Mac prefers.  I don't recall getting a positive answer.  Why am I not permitted to save something where I want to save?   I am frustrated at not being able to do that in Snow Leopard.  Does anyone have a solution to this problem? Is that problem resolved in Lion or ML?
Thanks Marvin, I needed that reassurance before I get any new HDDs.     As far as old IDE drives, I bought a gadget that plugs directly into the drives without using an enclosure, so I can read them to tell if they are worth keeping.  If not, I take off the top and destroy the discs.
    My iMac  'About this Mac' shows that if has a Serial-ATA Device Tree. Can I use SATA external hard drives in  3.5" IDE/SATA to USB 2.0, eSATA external enclosures?    IDE hard drives?   Thanx  
MS Word has a 'Print preview' in the tool bar. MS Excel does not, and I haven't been able to find one in the 'Customizing Toolbar' section.  Is there a 'Print preview' in Excel other than clicking File > Print > Preview?  I need to check my worksheets frequently and File > Print > Preview is awkward, annoying, and there is always the danger of printing out the worksheet prematurely. I have hit the wrong button ???? times.    If you know a way to put 'Print Preview'...
