I just got an eMac for a friend. Where in the heck is the 'on' button/switch? It didn't come with a keyboard so I'm using one from the old Bondi iMac. That keyboard on button doesn't turn it on.<br><br>tia<br><br><br><br>
I have always been puzzled by that power button location. You'd think Apple would have taken a cue from the old iMacs and place the button right on the front... where it makes sense.<br><br>Glad to have helped, Kate! <br><br>- alec -
Another hard question: ha<br><br>The eMac is on. Couldn't get mail to work, but I'll call her ISP in the morning. Help desk closes at 5 p.m. [rollin me eyes]<br><br>Now, I downloaded Apple eMac Manual 87 page pdf. It says to open the cd tray<br><br>Inserting a CD or DVD Disc<br>To install or use programs from a CD or DVD disc, follow these steps:<br>1 With the computer turned on, press the Media Eject (C) key on the keyboard to open the drive tray.<br>2 Place the disc flat on the tray, with the label facing up, and press the Media Eject key<br>again to close the tray.<br><br>When the icon for the disc appears on the desktop, the disc is ready to use.<br><br>I don't have no steenkin button on the Bondi iMac keyboard that does that. It says to get one out of the tray<br><br>Ejecting a Disc<br>To eject a disc, do one of the following:<br>• Drag the disc icon to the Trash.<br>• Press and hold the Media Eject (C) key on the keyboard until the disc ejects.<br>If you can’t eject the disc, quit any applications that may be using the disc and try<br>again. If that doesn’t work, restart the computer while holding down the mouse<br>button.<br><br>How do I open the CD door with a key combo or some other way than mentioned above?<br><br>I could have gotten a keyboard with this computer for $10 but I already have 3 sitting around here . . .<br><br>tia<br><br><br>

Go to the /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras folder<br><br>Double-click the Eject.menu file. It will put a handy Eject icon in the menu bar.<br><br>There is also some key combo with F12 (either cntrl-F12, option-F12, command-F12) that will open the CD drive on some keyboards - I think.<br><br>
She was using a Bondi iMac with os9. I upgraded to 10.3.9 or something like that but she is also on a modem. I cant bear going out there to help her with everything so danged slow!<br><br>So I hop this eMac will speed her up half as much.<br><br>She loves playing solitaire and shanghai/mah jong.<br><br>I am her support person and that's not saying much . . . <br><br><br><br>
