Yosemite Users Apple changed the way the LSUIElement works in Yosemite. It will cause the app to run as an agent but will no longer cause it to overlay full screen Windows. To fix, open up the Info.plist file per other people's instructions and add the following two elements: <key>LSUIElement</key> <true/> ...

Found the actual problem and the solution for it: the network preferences still remembered the office network as a WEP connection. This has however changed some time ago since I switched to more secure WPA2 encoding. I made the prefs forget the network and re-added it – now the security prefs correspond to the actual setting and the computer does ...

Install Xcode from the App Store and use File Merge. Then you can open both directories, and compare individual differences and pick which one is "correct" (even down to lines of text within a file), merging the results to a new directory or over the top of one of the two you're comparing. (it should be available in Spotlight after you've installed Xcode, ...

Look for the apple/Mac icon (perhaps top left). There will be an option for "Force Quit." Use that.

Without jailbreak no. Even if you're using the same Apple ID on both devices, you can't get the same SMS and call (and also call logs) of the other device, because this two things depends from the telephone number and they're recorded on the device that received the message / call. Probably you'll get the iMessage on both devices because they works ...

In Mac OS X there appears to be four different timestamps associated with a file. These timestamps are not always updated independently from each other, but one can have some individual control with a bit of care and with use of touch, SetFile, and chown (or chmod). To see this, let's experiment and create a new file from the command prompt #: # touch a.txt ...

I recently had this issue because I uninstalled the version of bash installed by macports (/opt/local/bin/bash) not realizing it was my default shell. The solution was to change my default shell back to /bin/bash via the advanced user options in the Users & Groups System Preferences. (See @sdmeyers' comment on @Pyrolistical's answer for instructions.)

In my case, I got this error, when I moved only eclipse shortcut to application folder. I solved this by moving whole eclipse folder(not the eclipse shortcut/eclipse executable) to application.

ALMOST SOLVED I got this solution to work in some Applications (like Finder, TextEdit, Firefox, ...) but not others (like Outlook, Chrome, ... ) A 'context click' can be mapped to a key/key-combo using all native Mac OS X features (thanks to its NeXT/OPENSTEP heritage). However, the solution is pretty technical "under the cover" stuff, and it may take ...

I suffered this today when doing a find / -whatever -exec this-or-that {} \; Suddenly mtmfs got 100% CPU. It turns out that mtmfs is a special filesystem mounted on /Volumes/MobileBackups. If you run something that will access files indiscrimately, such as a find (something many "cleaner" programs do) mtmfs will use a lot of CPU when its files are being ...

Finally solved this issue... (3 days later) Open up YOURUSERNAME.local.err in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql/ with a text editor. I had "InnoDB: Your database may be corrupt or you may have copied the InnoDB tablespace but not the InnoDB log files" Then follow instructions on http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/forcing-innodb-recovery.html ...

My Macbook was returning 3 petabytes of free space… I do like optimistic thinking, but… Zapping the Spotlight index with Cocktail did the trick.

On windows create second partition formatted as ExFAT. Move data you need to second partition. Then run OS X Recovery Partition. Format first partition, install OS X. Then move data from second partition to first and delete second partition.

There is no way to reinstall OS X without formatting and losing data. If you want to keep your data, recover the data to another drive or to the cloud.

If you want to use this trackball with all its buttons with a huge selection of programmable functions (you will not get all the original functions, however) go get you a Mac & SteerMouse. You can buy a used MacBook for the price some want for this trackball.

In the Finder window, under the Gear Symbol "Actions" select "Show View Options" at the bottom of the drop-down. From the new pop up window, you can change the default view options to "Arrange by: None" & "Sort by: Name" (or any other method)

Family Sharing is not a good option because you manually need to select the photos you share. If you want you and your wife to have access to all the same photos, the solution is to use the same iCloud account for photo sharing for both of you. This also means you only need to pay for iCloud storage once. What makes this feasible is that you can then setup ...

By looking at /var/log/system.log just after the attempt to install the command line tools from within Xcode, here is the error message you get: May 1 19:50:13 ••My_Mac•• Xcode[4711]: [MT] DVTAssertions: Warning in /SourceCache/IDEKit/IDEKit-2113/Framework/Classes/Downloadables/IDEDownloadablesActivityReporter.m:76 Details: Error ...

You can add a file extension to the list of "safe" extensions. Once that is done, safari will launch whatever application is associated with that file type. This is done by creating the file ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.DownloadAssessment.plist containing the file extension you want opened. Here is an example, which solves the problem for .torrent ...
