I have various notes in my Notes.app that I want to keep, but when I look in the Folders-overview of Notes.app on my iPhone, they appear to be connected to various eMail-accounts that I have.
How can I get them together in one folder ? (e.g. in iCloud)
What you are asking is actually rather simple, but it’s not as intuitive as you might have wished :
on your iPhone/iPad, open the Notes.app
in the window that opens (“Notes”), click on the orange <-icon top left [on an iPad it’s the orange menu-card icon top-left]
in the window that opens (“Folders”), see how many notes each folder contains, and write those numbers down
then click on the >-icon at the right of the eMail-account you want to move the notes away from
in the window that opens (“Notes”), you will see all of the notes that are connected to that eMail-account
then click on Edit (top right)
then click on Move All (bottom left)
in the window that opens, select a folder to move these old notes to (I would suggest to move them to your iCloud account’s folder, but you can choose any other folder, or you can create a new folder by clicking on “New Folder”)
then, in the window that opens (“Folders”), your the eMail-account will still be listed, but the number of notes in it will be 0 (and the number of notes in the folder that you’ve previously chosen will have increased by the exact number that was in your old eMail-account)
now, repeat this procedure for any other eMail-accounts that you would like to disconnect your notes from
NOTE : after the Notes have been transferred, you might still see a number next to the old folder even though no notes can be found when you click on it ; to fix this, just close the Notes.app completely (look here if you don’t know how to do that) and reopen the Notes.app again
I somehow managed to move an icon to the outer corner of the Desktop in such a way that there’s no way to select it and move it to another location (or trash it). The document icon even got placed behind the Dock, so whenever I try to select the icon, the Dock is in front of it, and I am selecting or activating something in the Dock…
How can I fix this ?
If there’s a document icon (or app icon) on your Desktop that you can’t select to use or move the document (or app), try this :
– open the Finder
– in the Finder window that opens, select your Desktop, then select the file (or app)
– now move it to another location on your Mac ; to another folder or to a new folder
– then, when you go back to your Desktop, the file will be in folder you’ve just put it in
…and if you wish, you can even drag & drop it back onto any location on the Desktop.
