That is the Escape (esc / ⎋) key. You can find more explanations for Mac Keyboard Symbols here. The click with option/alt/⌥ function exists to hide the entire sidebar. The sidebar can contain multiple panes, such as the Favorites pane. Without holding option/alt/⌥, it will hide only the Project pane and expand any other pane in the sidebar (if none, it ...

You didn't say what the name of the file you downloaded was or its URL, (Are we just supposed to guess?). Assuming it was the WebSploit-Framework-3.0.0.tar.gz file from WebSploit Framework, under normal circumstances* you'd simply unpack the file by double-clicking it and it should create a folder named websploit containing two files, install.sh and ...

You can make custom commands for any key bindings you would use in Gmail and Google Docs. For example, here is a command for moving the cursor to the end of the line in Gmail. You can find this menu under Accessibility>Dictation>Dictation commands>+ So, so long as you have key bindings for the stuff that you want, you will be able to manually create ...

Sadly, this is a very broad issue, and unfortunately it's difficult to solve over the internet with so little information. I'll give as much help as I can, but you're probably best following online guides until you can come back with more information. MacWorld has a good guide, as does HowToGeek and a host of others. Given what you've done so far, I'll try ...

To upgrade from 10.8.5 to 10.9 or 10.10 you had to "purchase" Mavericks or Yosemite in the Apple App Store previously. Purchase is overstated because it was free then. After launching the final El Capitan 10.11.0 in the public the possibility to get the former systems in the store is gone if they don't populate your purchase list. The Combo Updaters only ...

Honestly I'd suggest running it in a virtual machine (VM). I used to dual boot, however, at every update it would wipe the Kali install.

iMacs can be used in Target Display Mode, but only from another Mac. This is a specific support mode, Mac to Mac, it is not the same as connecting an external display to a graphics card. See OS X Yosemite: Use another Mac as a display

Not really - the OS is designed to do all the network transfer that the routers will allow. From a systems perspective - the network is so slow compared to storage, CPU, memory - that any attempt to hobble that subsystem is really a poor use of the computer. You would need to have traffic shaping tools on the router or connect the Mac to the router using a ...

Adobe apps have their own Keyboard Shortcuts setup, in the Edit menu. I don't have InDesign, only Photoshop, but this is what it looks like in there… It's in Layer > Arrange [you need to do a lot of scrolling to get there] After comments… It may not be possible to assign a single-key shortcut in Adobe, it may always need to include Cmd ⌘ however, ...

1) Resize your OSX Partition, leave the space created as freespace (i.e don't create any partition) 2) Write the iso to USB and boot it (take the most recent image from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com) 3) Create ext4 for / where the freespace was created, use sda1 (osx: disk1s1) or use another EFI if you have more then 1 drive and you want to use the second for ...

You can not delete the Guest User. What you are seeing is the correct behaviour for OS X; the minus button (-) is automatically disabled when the Guest User account is selected. You appear to have disabled the Guest User account by unchecking all the options. This is enough to stop anyone logging in as guest on your Mac.

I just discovered Magnet available on the App store for $1.99 (current price as of posting) that provides the ability to "snap" windows to corners, right, left, etc. So far, it works as advertised. I am not affiliated with the app or developer. Just found it and find it useful.

In the first example below Option-L/R arrow does the same after adjusting the keycodes as Control-L/R arrow.

To make this work you have to use a third party tool: Karabiner. Download, ...

My knowledge of keyboard bindings is that it's difficult to do without installing third party applications. With that said, Karabiner (formerly KeyRemap4MacBook) provides a great way of customizing bindings easily, and should be able to do what you want.

The battery status of bluetooth connected devices is usually displayed when you click on the bluetooth menu bar icon (the icons in the top right). I might be slightly mistaken: It could also be in a submenu of said menu. You might need to enable the icon. This can be done in System Preferences/Bluetooth → Show Bluetooth in menu bar.

Try to do these things. Check that you have this option unchecked. I am sure you have it unchecked, but just in case :) It may be set to 'Change picture: When logging in'. So let's make sure that this is not the reason. Then you may try to enter following command in terminal: rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Desktop.­plist After this, set your ...

You can indeed increase the amount of VRAM in certain Apple models. In fact, you have already done that for 1 or 2 times. 2012 Mac Mini 4GB allocated 768MB to VRAM in it's original release state. Upgrading the RAM back in 2012 to 8GB would have given you 1024MB. Keeping the RAM at 4GB but upgrading to OSX 10.9 would also resulted in 1024MB. Following your ...

VRAM is only included on dedicated graphics cards. On other computers (such as the Mac mini), the OS reserves a portion of RAM for use with an integrated graphics processor. There's no way to adjust this. Some Macs will adjust the amount of VRAM they use dynamically, but there's still a maximum amount it will use, and you can't change that.

I would suggest using dd, from the command line (Terminal). The syntax is as follows: sudo dd if=/path/to/file/<file> of=/dev/disk<your drive number> bs=1m It will prompt you for your password, and you will not be able to see it as you type. To get your disk number, you can run diskutil list from Terminal, and find the disk that most closely ...

Mac do not have hardware activation lock. Read the last paragraph of the "FAQ" for confirmation. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201365 You would want to check for a Firmware Password which might need another question if you don't know what that is, but iCloud cannot prevent you from reinstalling an OS or activating any Mac that has shipped thus far. ...

The best bet is to change some shortcuts while observing the content of your Preferences folder sorted by modification date.

Unless this is included in a Time Machine backup (in which case you could restore it with Migration Assistant), then not easily. See this answer and this answer.

The MacBook Pro's HDMI port has a DVI-D implementation. This means it has no analog signal, which is what VGA relies on to connect. More information here: apple support forums .

I had a similar problem, which I believe I solved by turning off a "flood limit" feature that was enabled on my main router. Have a look at your EnGenius ESR-9752's configuration pages. Check the firewall settings. If there's anything that seems like it's set to "limit bursting traffic," try disabling it. Also, make sure these TCP/UDP ports are open, and ...
