Which of you geeks can help me with a Mac problem?

:iconorangekrissy:

I downloaded a pic to my desktop but it was so huge that it went beyond all 4 sides and corners of my screen. Now I can't get to the top bar to close out the window or the bottom right pull down corner to shrink the screen. How do I delete this monstrosity from my desktop?

No no no, being dumb, there's your problem. Macs are the bomb.

Macs are good except for one problem: they're near impossible to get inside of and fix yourself. Great OS and great UI though.

I am guessing you are a PC-head who's never used a Mac. I was, for 11 years, always laughing at Mac users. Biggest mistake.

:lol: PC-head who's used Mac before, although barely, and actually kinda liked it, and I've used Windows my whole life and it's OK, but got into Linux last January and prefer it over Windows or Mac.

I imagine Linux is pretty great but it's completely not my thing. Technology is not my geekdom of choice, I have little desire to customize or take anything apart - so I can definitely understand preferring Windows or Linux especially if that's up your alley.

Don't have to be a supergeek to use Linux anymore, with Ubuntu and Mint being around. I of course am a supergeek, but I run Ubuntu, and it's the easiest thing I have ever used so far.

I have used a mac for four months when working as an animator. FOUR months! What more do you want from me? Don't give me the old 'You didn't give it a chance' card because that crow won't caw.

Yes, Mac OSX is a very elegant system but unlike PC, you can't customise or replace parts off the shelves (bar the ram), running windows on a serter enviroment is a lot smoother, plugin utilities are almost non-existent on mac, and despite the way Apple keep promoting their products as 'virus free' it does have a shit ton of security issues (google it for god's sake).

I could go on further but I think that will suffice for why macs are not worth the absurdly high price tag, especially when you can get a PC that does a hell of a lot more than macs and cheaper in a lot of cases. So, you're entitled to your opinion but in mine (through experiance need I remind you), macs are not better than PCs.

Fair enough. I have absolutely no desire to customize beyond ram. I've never had a plugin or virus issue, although I imagine we use computers for very different things. My PC emulator is kind of ehn, but way better than any attempt at a Mac emulator I've personally seen done.

I wouldn't say Macs are better. I prefer their OS, but you're right in that they are no way in hell worth their price as far as what they do. But aside from willing to pay a bit more for sleekness, I mostly bite the cost because after a four year degree in graphic design I absolutely needed a Mac and it wasn't worth the compatibility issues and constant file converting of using a PC. But I'm glad you did dick around on it. I'm tired of the stereotype since I know a lot of people moan without touching the things just because of the pricetag or the asshat that was Jobs.

Windows and mac os both suck balls. To quote the nerd, I'd rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in my ear than use either of them.

Set another smaller desktop image?

I'm beginning to think it somehow turned into a screen saver as all the other Jpeg icons are not covered by it but on top of it.

When you click on the apple on the upper left and go to System Preferences, the 2nd option is Desktop and Screen Saver, you can set it to whatever you want from there if that's the case.

Thanks, figured it out yesterday. Turned out I must have hit "set as desktop background" and didn't notice it. Thank you for your help though. I take it you have a Mac also?

Glad I could offer help.

I run windows on my gaming systems, linux on my servers and OSX on my macs for productivity and everything else. My favorite is the mac by far.

Computer nerd to the bone.

Oh, and command [TAB] (but keep holding command) should change the active program so that you can activate the program that's displaying the image, so that you might be able to close it without drastic measures.

command W should close the active window or command Q should quit the application that's displaying the image.
unless you're in some funky program utilizing full screen features, the system bar should always be at the top of the screen, displaying menu options and indicating which program is active. Full-screen mode can often be toggled via [fn]+f11.
if some sort of funky funky program is running, you can always enter System Monitor and "kill" it. You can always find this by pressing command [spacebar] (spotlight search should pop up in the upper right) and start typing in "system", then run System Monitor.

Any of this help? I've never encountered a nightmare window that was too large to resize or move. Wish I could be there to help in person to get more of an idea what's going on.

I'm thinking it became a screen saver as all other jpeg icons I have on my desktop are on top of the pic instead of under, which doesn't happen when you open a jpeg pic.
