how did I hide digital editions and Microsoft User Data

| | | | | | | |

I am attempting to recreate all of the little customizations that I have layered onto my MBP.

In the Documents folder, I had removed the unwelcome ‘Microsoft User Data’ and Digital Editions folders from the finder by hiding them…

Or, more accurately, in the case of the MUD folder; moved the folder to ~/Library/ and created an alias to the original.

Hard to clean spots, No. 1: My Email Inbox

| | | | |

My email inbox. Sheesh. You'd think that after spending hours. ..no, DAYS creating and tweaking rules for Mail.app, you could have a set-and-forget, self-maintaining inbox. But...Nope.
Especially since on a mac, you first need to put in all the effort of adding the addresses of incoming messages to your Address Book.app and creating groups (to be used by Mail.app rules).
But...No. Still a mess. My inbox ends up as the place where everything that 'slipped through the cracks' of my extensive rule-list ends up. I think I clean it up every 4 months or so. On a semesterly basis. I currently have about 300 500+ unfiled unfortunates in there.

finding the application responsible for adding Spotlight Attributes

|

As I have begun to work more intensively with the SpotLight Attributes (thanks to both old-skool tagging apps and newer OpenMeta offerings) I have noticed that the list of SpotLight Attributes (accesible through the refine search UI in finder search window: /command F in Finder/ click on 'kind', select 'Other') has grown SOOOooooooohhhhhhhhhhh long.

disappearing desktop icon in osx finder sidebar is really just a new one overwriting the original one

| | | | | | | | |

So a while ago when I was figuring out how to get OSX leopard to do fast user switching I noticed that desktop icons (in the Finder sidebar) were different between accounts.

FlowSpaces. Correct Desktop Icon in Sidebar. New User. Picture 1.png

The new 'test' account had the 'default' icon that looks like a thumbnail of the actual desktop--not the 'special folder' icon that is is the default for the Desktop folder that you would see in your Home folder...
