RATS!   I tried the method you suggested and the ElMedia player went away and the files could be opened. I worked with a few files earlier and everyone I tried opened and worked.   A few minutes ago, I tried to work with another one of the files and they ALL had reverted back to the ElMedia player again and won't open.   I'll retry your method but I still think ElMedia is a Trojan horse or whatever that's called. It just doesn't seem to want to go away.   I'm...
Thanks Tallest Skil,   You saved me from pulling the rest of my hair out.
I stupidly downloaded:  http://mac.eltima.com/freeflashplayer.html  which seemed to be a legitimate site, but It may be a Trojan horse or something so be careful if you're thinking of downloading it.  It certainly doesn't work as advertised.  If it is a legit site, it needs repairs to work.    Now, all files with FLV extension have changed over to 'SWF & FLV' player, but they won't open / play.     How can I get rid of 'SWF & FLV player'?  Spot light points it out but...
Is there a way to enlarge print in Mac Mail?  Pinching out doesn't work; View / full screen doesn't enlarge the print; Window/zoom creates full screen also but doesn't enlarge print.   Help doesn't help - of course.    Any suggestions?
I see that it is an old thread, but colleenamareena asked the question 1 day 12 hours ago. I was answering that post.  Wrong answer, of course.
On an iMac, this works. Right click on the icon. If 'customize toolbar' pops up, click that, then when the customize window opens, drag the icon off the toolbar.I'm not familiar with iPod so I don't know if that would work or not.
I have had a bunch of similar problems after upgrading to Mavericks.  One thing that has helped occasionally (but not permanently) is 'Force Quit' (command - option - escape) and then relaunching 'Finder'.  So every time I have a problem, I take a few seconds to relaunch Finder and sometimes it works.   Hope this works for you.  
Methods described in Help and online & drag and drop / copy and paste, FAILED to import old contacts into Mavericks’ Contacts. As I needed those contacts, I was determined to keep hunting for a solution.   Eureka! I found one.  I ‘Exported’ Address Book from MBP / SL.  It showed as a vCard on the MBP desktop.  When clicking it, it just showed where it came from, Address Book    I ‘shared’ the file onto Desktop on my iMac.  When I clicked on it, it entered the old...
No, I'm not using the external HDD for a boot drive.  I found that one reason it now won't eject is that I have Sharing on from iMac to MBP. I get that error message occasionally when trying to eject the ext HDD.  IF I turn sharing off, SOMETIMES, the Ext HDD will eject.  This wasn't the case with SL. I could eject an ext HDD without turning off Sharing. My biggest problem :I am still having problems importing Contacts that weren't on my ISP's list.  I've gone through the...
Thanks.     Another question, but don't feel you must answer if you're uncomfortable doing so -    For the present, I'm using my external backup as my main HDD. It's a new WD black caviar 2TB HDD in a Rosewill enclosure w/fan.  It doesn’t mount the first time it’s turned on but requires being turned off and back on to do so. It also resists being ejected and has to be force ejected.  Is it okay to leave it on 24/7 or should I just go through the machinations of turning...
