So I found this to be closest to what you want. Show One Application At A Time you can enable a ‘single application’ mode by entering the following command in Terminal: defaults write com.apple.dock single-app -bool true You must then enter this command in order to see the changes: killall Dock This mode allows for only 1 application to be shown at ...

Hide the Dock, then use Contexts for Mac to switch between active windows. Contexts has an option to show only the application with active windows regardless it’s running in background or not. You can read my review here.

I had the same issue, the only explanation i can guess that , the reason it went hidden as an impact from a Spyware script that was installed with an infected dmg file of one of the software downloaded recently from cNet

I have a similar issue. We just bought an Airport Express for the office and I'm on Yosemite which forces me to turn the Wi-Fi on and off after it awakes from sleep and then my hostname gets incremented.

No dual mode in OS X Finder There is no native dual mode in OS X Finder. You can replace Finder with software like 'TotalFinder' (image below). Or you can use window managing software, like ShiftIt or mjolnir, to place your Finder windows side-by-side. Mjolnir (donation ware) is highly scriptable and should be capable of doing exactly this. This feature ...

You may also want to consider using http://serverfault.com/questions/211382/proper-way-to-disable-apache-listening-on-localhost In short: change Listen 80 into Listen 127.0.0.1:80 in /private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf I found that to be the easiest way. Cheers!

As a test server with multiple VM running, definitely quad core is much better than dual-core. None of the new features introduced in late-2014 mac mini benefits you.

I was talking with someone from Enterprise Sales who said this was only supported on Apple Hardware. This is frankly pathetic on an enterprise front. On our ESX hardware we run Windows Server, Windows Desktop, Unix and Linux boxes. It allows true cloud type functionality - we don't care what the underlying hardware is and have the ability to dynamically ...

Do you mean that you want to know the length of time of the current login session, or the total use for the machine since it left the factory? The latter is not possible because the logs that store that sort of information rotate. The former is sort of possible, but will take you checking the logs frequently. For one, the last command will show recent login ...

There is a function called Folder Action. Right click on the originating folder. Select Folder action Now select the Action you want (in your case Duplicate) You can modify the script if you want to to suit your needs, but it will basically make copies of files at the moment they are added to the original folder in a newly created folder.

There are two possibilities here as far as I'm aware: Take the Mac to an Apple store where they may be willing to install Mavericks for you. Find someone who is running Mavericks, or who has upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite, and who is willing to help you. They will be able to download the Mavericks installer from their previous purchases in the App ...

To see which folders inside ~/Library use most of the space, run something like cd ~/Library; du -sm * | sort -rn | head -16 in Terminal which gives you the 16 folders using the most space. Specific cleanup actions afterwards depend on the folders found.

Go to Format → Font → Copy Style (⌥⌘C) to copy the style of the currently highlighted text, then go to Format → Font → Paste Style (⌥⌘C) to paste the style.     Some apps change the position of this feature, such as iWork, to simply Format → Copy Style.

If you’ve deleted applications/programs, and they have leftovers in the Library/Application Support/ folder, then it is probably safe to clean out that program’s Library/Application Support/ subfolder. If, for example, I wanted to remove Firefox’s old data after uninstalling, I would go to Finder’s search box and type firefox. Make sure the search is set to ...

~/Library is where all your apps store their prefs, how you want them to work for you. It would generally be unwise to start playing in there without being certain of what you are doing.... That said, some apps can store large cache files in there, others may be folders for apps you long-since deleted - those would be safe candidates. 70GB is a pretty big ...

While this might not help everyone, if you are running samba on the file server, you can add the following in your smb.conf: Veto files = /.TemporaryItems/._.TemporaryItems/.DS_Store/ The "Veto files" is a / separated string of filenames (wildcards also allowed) that is forbidden to be created. This resolved the issue for me. I found this trick on the ...

The application bundle should go in /Applications. This application bundle should contain everything.

Inside your iPhoto Library is a folder named Caches. This folder contains temporary thumbnails generated in circumstances such as a pending import. You can delete the contents of this directory, although iPhoto should manage it itself.

This solved it for me: Go to System Preferences -> Energy Saver. Select "Power Adapter" and then uncheck "Wake for network access". Ever since I did that a couple of days ago my computer name has stayed the same.

JavaForOSX2014-001.dmg contains Java for Mac OS X (1.6.0_65-b14-462). It will be installed to /System/Library/Java and /System/Library/Frameworks while Oracle Java is located at /Library/Java.

Go to System Preferences → Displays and adjust the Overscan slider (or checkbox, depending on the screen model) so the content fits on the screen.

Find the location of your iPhoto library (usually in ~/Pictures) and move it to the iCloud Drive folder in Finder. Once the library has moved, you can switch library in iPhoto by launching iPhoto with ⌥, then selecting the new library location.

Did you consider using Keyboard Maestro? Here you can see how I deal with something this. I use it to move cursor and windows between screens, but is really easy to modify per your requests.

The following facts are relevant to the workaround. A separate copy of SystemUIServer runs on behalf of each user, owned by that user, when the user has a GUI login. This is very convenient because it means we can kill this program without requiring passwords and suchlike. SystemUIServer appears to have been very nicely cordoned off by Apple ...

Tab is supposed to work (and does), but Yosemite seems to have a bug in regard to highlighting which button is selected. The entire button being blue means the button is the default, but there should also be a visual indicator of which button is selected. You can test that Tab does in fact work. Press Cmd+S to save the page you are looking at right now. ...

Simplified explanation: When an application is started, an entry is written to disk that says this app is currently active. When an application quits, that entry is removed. When the system starts and finds entries in this list, it's an indicator that the system crashed or did not shut down properly and it can offer to relaunch those apps for you. It takes ...

You are misreading the "restore the windows that it previously had open".- it means applications that were open prior pushing the Power button to shut down. It definitely knows what applications are open at the any time. So it is simply asking you if you want those applications reopen.

The best way I've found is to install MySQL with Homebrew, not from the .dmg available from the MySQL or Oracle. If you have Homebrew installed, simply run the following command in Terminal. brew install mysql Then to have MySQL start automatically, run the following: brew services start mysql

You probably have iA Writer installed on your Mac.

I have the same issue. In Accessibility settings, turn on "Reduce Transparency". That mitigates the issue somewhat, however I still see a bit of lag with the newly selected window on the other monitor being fully focused.

Yet another tool suggestion: ShiftIt. Free, actively under development, completely open source, lightweight, very easy to use, and keeps a low profile in the top menu bar.

I've run into a similar problem after installing Yosemite(not beta but full release) and my corded keyboard is not recognized after boot up. Unplugging and replugging the keyboard forces the Mac to recognize the keyboard (so it is just a nuisance at this point) but I've noticed that a USB external drive keeps ejecting it's self. Perhaps there is a USB bug in ...
