Sharing your source Internet using WiFi to your Ethernet output.

You sure can! Open System Preferences, then go to Sharing and select Internet Sharing. Change "Share your connection from:" to Wi-Fi, and then in the box below it select Ethernet.

I have the same "annoyance", but as MeltingDog said, you just need to go to your screen and move your cursor to the bottom, and the dock will appear there.

Dock position could be changed when You place Your mouse on the bottom edge of the secondary screen and then move it down again.

I would start with this plan. Get a backup disk or connect a USB drive that you can dedicate to backing up your iMac. Get a full Time Machine backup so you can experiment and delete things. Lion and later (10.7) need no disk to run maintenance and reinstall the OS. You can boot to recovery to wipe the drive and reinstall the core OS. Do keep in mind, you ...

You could download 'DaisyDisk' and let it analyze your Disk. You get a very good overview what Files are using up your Space.

You do not need a disk to reinstall Mavericks, since it has a recovery partition that will download Mavericks and do a fresh install, if you prefer to do that. Erase and reinstall Mavericks: http://support.apple.com/kb/PH14243 Otherwise, you can probably just delete the user account, which will offer to delete all the user's info, freeing up considerable ...

That looks (the report) very similar to a problem I've got. It started with frozen screens & Kernel Panics, every now and again, slowly its got worse, so I decided to investigate. After doing several things, I decided to do an AHT test (hardware test = pressing "D" on start up), after doing an "Extended Test" the result was 4/MEM/9/40000000: 0xb73ce318 ...

That console message means iPhoto was doing so much processing on the main UI thread that it couldn't even supply updated UI to the windowserver for a few seconds. It could be your iCloud Photostream acting up in iPhoto. I had this issue and had to disable photostream.

i've seen this on some of my machines... it is fixable (though ican't remember the details for my situation). but it will stay very slow until you clean out those ui/windowserver errors. firstly: have you added any screensavers? have you safe booted to clean out caches and check HD? ...

Now OS X(Mavericks) supports Thunderbolt networking just like any other networking interfaces. Then, you can share internet just like any other interfaces. Anyway Thunderbolt interface is pretty picky, then sometimes you will not able to make connection. I don't know why, but if established, it provides at least 100MiB/s bandwidth! I expect this is limited ...

As bizarre as it seems i just installed Mav and then had all the probs listed here- so i ran a repair permissions on utility and now it seems fine- 1GB out of 4 is spare on average use- Memory Clean is a big help in spring cleaning RAM of any unnecessary use :-)

Your full hard drive could be a reason. Some space is needed for swap and sleepimages and whatnot, and OS X has difficulties operating when it only has so little space free for those tasks. Try freeing some space (at least 5GB is recommended by Apple if I recall, I'd try to free more just to try).

I recently had some Bluetooth device issues in Windows 8. I found that booting into OS X and removing the paired device from OS X, then booting into Windows 8 allowed me to pair the device. Remember to boot back into OS X and pair the device against once it is working in Windows. I also replaced the Broadcom drivers as well. I wrote about this here: Apple ...

I would suggest using the 'Migration Assistant' to move your Profile and your Apps from your old Mac to the new one. You can find a very good Tutorial on how to do that on the Apple Support pages here. Usually the Keychain (with all saved password) and Serials for your Applications are moved as well. There are some exceptions, but i think it should work ...

The solution appeared to be straight forward: just set export DISPLAY=":0" in .bashrc or whatever file your shell sources its profile from.

George, We had a similar issue while building images for our various Elementary Schools that cropped up this year. Some images would work and some wouldn't. We first thought it had something to do with the various model computers we were using to create the images, i.e. building the image on a MBA 2013 and trying to apply to a 2012 MBA model, but that ended ...

Have you tried an SMC reset? The SMC controls fan speed and operation. Give it a shot. SMC reset (how to perform) and symptoms needing one described in this kbase: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964

You can't, as your iMac won't let you boot into an OS X version that's older than what it shipped with. Snow Leopard does not have the necessary drivers for the new iMac.

Yes its is possible. You can daisy chain (connect) two thunderbolt displays. See http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5219#18

I have similar problem with my iMac. Took it to Apple Store and was advised to stop using Google Chrome as it is the cause.

You should search for a DVI to Mini-Display port, as Mini-Display cables are compatible with Thunderbolt ports. A quick google search turned up this from the apple store. Be aware that this is a DVI-D adapter, which means it only outputs digital signals.

According to the TP-Link company website, TL-WN721N is only supported under Windows.

Why can't you use the built-in Airport in the Mac? Set up Network Preferences or just click on the WiFi icon in the Menu Bar.

So the fugly screen was the result of a burned out video card. I found a replacement (same exact model) online, and performed the surgery on my iMac. The patient lived and video problems went away. Repairing permissions on my SSD drive still don't work, but that's another problem.
