How to Transfer an iWeb website from one Mac to Another

iWeb icon
Here’s an easy trick to make if you want to transfer a website you’ve made on Mac using iWeb to another Mac to continue editing with iWeb on that Mac.

  1. Exit iWeb on the first machine (where you created the web site).
  2. Using the finder, go to your home folder, open your Library folder, then open the Appliation Support folder.
  3. Copy the iWeb folder to a thumb drive and take that to the other machine (or find some other way to copy the entire folder to the other machine). (If you don’t see an iWeb folder then check to see that you are not looking in the system Library folder.)
  4. On the second machine, drag this folder to your own Library/Appliation Support folder, replacing any iWeb folder already there. (Be sure iWeb is not running there too.)
  5. Finally, launch iWeb, and you can now edit the web site on the second machine.

How to maximize Safari windows to full-screen on the Mac? * updated *

One of the most annoying and frustrating thing especially for the so-called Windows-converts (i.e. people who “switch to the Mac” from Windows) on Mac OS X is that the maximize button (the small round green button with a ‘+’ sign on the upper-left corner of every window) acts differently on Mac than Windows in most cases. In fact, the maximize button behavior varies from application to application on the Mac, and unlike on Windows, it does not necesseraly maximize the window, but just change its dimensions. (See below and the rest of the article for details and for a couple work-around solutions to making windows full-screen on web browsers such as Safari).

On windows , the maximize button – where the term “maximize” is inherent from Windows operating system anyway – simply enlarges a window to almost full screen except that the window’s title bar, menu bar and the task bar remains visible and the remaining space is allocated to the window and its contents. On the Mac, however, this may not exactly be the case – especially when using Safari.
