Apparently, Telegram Desktop generates these files during "failed" searches when using the @gif command. The ones that Telegram generates are easily identified by being named with a series of 18 digits (e.g 532576936841446647.download), usually similar to one another, and always at zero-bytes length. You can replicate the issue by trying some @gif searches ...

The computers are not being discovered by Bonjour; they're being discovered by NetBIOS. NetBIOS is a common network protocol that all IP-based devices use to announce themselves on the network. That includes printers, security cameras, phones, etc. It cannot be disabled on the infrastructure side (well, technically it can but this would break one of the ...

Per the rest of the answerers in here, Finder (as of El Capitan) does not do this. For those seeking a free terminal-based solution, I arrived at id3v2 referenced in a Linux forum which I found easy to use. Installation with HomeBrew was easy enough too. Installation Via HomeBrew - Update HomeBrew and install commands brew update && brew ...

A couple years back I wrote a blog post on performing bulk file operations. The first step was to copy the list of files from search results into a spreadsheet. Since you already have the spreadsheet, you are very close to having a script that can do the renaming for you. Let’s assume you have old names in column A and new names in column B. Write the ...

I've found this to be one of the most simple ways: In a spreadsheet column, concatenate: "cp oldfilename newfilename" to create a copy with the new name. Use "mv oldfilename newfilename" to replace the old files rather than copy. Copy this concatenated column to a text file and save as rename.sh in the folder with the files to be renamed. Open terminal, ...

I just installed Drive on a new Apple computer and saw that dialog for the first time. Found on the apple forum that it could be related to having Drive sync with multiple accounts.

This worked for me: Go to your Finder Go menu hold the option key and choose Library. Then go to the Preferences folder and trash these files: com.apple.finder.plist com.apple.sidebarlists.plist Then restart (You will have to reset a some finder prefs the way you like them).

Just a note in El Capitan you have to turn off the system integrity mode to change the files needed. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/32590053/copying-file-under-root-got-failed-in-os-x-el-capitan-10-11

It's possible to block Bonjour traffic by configuring pf to disallow: MAC addresses: 01:00:5E:00:00:FB – IPv4 33:33:00:00:00:FB – IPv6 IP addresses: 224.0.0.251 – multicast IPv4 address FF02::FB – multicast IPv6 address UDP port 5353 However, this will also impact your own regular and "desirable" hosts. One possibility is to configure a VLAN and set it ...

This first command will remove all the icons on your Desktop, but keep the files visible in finder: defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool false && killall Finder While this second one will restore all the icons on your Desktop: defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool true && killall Finder

Apple has removed Cover Flow view from Open file dialog. As a workaround use a separate Finder window with Cover Flow view to locate your file in and then drag&drop the file into an open Open file dialog in your browser. The Open file dialog will then switch to the folder containing the file you dropped and highlight it.

another way is to use XtraFinder, there are many nice features including "cut"

Would this question be helpful ? It gives at least a searchable option using "View -> Show Status Bar" or "View -> Show Path Bar". (Sorry I can't just write this as a comment yet). Finder does not show Path Bar and Status Bar, what to do?

I just had the same problem - usually the double click works but for some reason it didn't work on a zipped mp4 video. What worked was to right-click and choose 'open with' > 'archive utility'.

You may be able to hunt down the problem by creating a second admin user. If the problem vanishes logging in as the second (admin) user, it's probably related to an item/setting in the realm of the first user. If the problem persists it's probably related to a system-wide setting/start-up item (e.g. a launch daemon/agent). In the first case you can ...

At the end, the only solution to this was to download Photos-to-Disk Software I mentioned above. It worked perfectly, creating the Folder Structure I needed. I recommend to do the same guys, if for some reason you have this issue.

OK, I found the issue. Apparently two options have to be set in order for any extension to disappear (except for .app). First you have to go into Finder's Preferences > Advanced. Untick Show all filename extensions. Then you tick Hide extension in the Get Info window for your file and the extension is hidden.

Try just doing the basic thing by pressing enter and deleting the extension. The press get info to make sure the extension is still there. Works on 10.11.4 Tested on OSX El Capitan 10.11.4

That's the "get info" window and not the Finder. The get info window will (in my experience) always show the extension. Hiding the extension is for Finder views not the get info window.

I finally found the LANDesk system files (and removed them) with finder: /Library/LaunchAgents /Library/LaunchDaemons /Library/Preferences /Library/StartupItems To remove from launchctl: sudo launchctl list | grep "name to find" sudo launchctl remove "label.of.the.file"

Maybe it's a LaunchAgent? See here to stop. See here to remove. If you want to find the actual file try EasyFind. It'll find things that Spotlight does not, especially non-user oriented files.

You can include System Files like those in the Library folders in a Spotlight search, if you use Spotlight within Finder via the search bar in the top right corner of each Finder window. Just type in your search and click the small + appearing below the search bar. In the opening window search for System files and tick it's box for In Menu and click OK. ...
