All your credentials are encrypted and stored using Keychain (e.g. ~/Library/Keychains/). It provides secure storage of your passwords, keys, certificates and other private data. To prevent unauthorized access to your credentials by 3rd party application, each time when keychain file is accessed, it asks for user permission to access his sensitive data. If ...

Yes you can delete anything in the Cache folder. There's no unsaved things. Just cached data. Like renderinged things in the case of After Effects. In video editing software you can often define maximum cache size.

In ~/Library/Preferences/ add a plist entry to the file com.google.Chrome.plist such that the key is IncognitoModeAvailability and the value is 1. Here is an example: assuming the file com.google.Chrome.plist doesn't exist, use a text editor to save the following code: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD ...

This is still an issue with Mail.app 8.2 in OSX 10.10.4. The only solution I have found so far is to save the email as a rich text document, then open the text document in TextEdit and save as PDF.

It makes sense if you think about it from a Finder perspective...when you click on Date Modified in Finder, you generally want the newest items at the top of the list. That said, it doesn't make sense when the list in this case opens from the bottom (at least, not without some way to sort the opposite way). I wasn't able to find a way around this, but there ...

I had a similar problem and in my case it seems to be caused by Tunnelblick, even when VPN was not connected. I uninstalled it (with the uninstaller, not just drag to Trash) and problem went away.

QLStephen is a more general solution that works for all kinds of text files.

You were looking in the right direction… though you cannot actually do this easily for a right click item - so long as there is a menu item in the same app, it's simple. I've only quickly tested this on Safari & TextEdit - whichever app you use must already have those 2 command options somewhere in their menu structure. System Prefs > Keyboard > ...

Press the refresh icon to the far right of the print job. This should bring up the dialogue for your credentials, supply these and then make sure to check the box to save them to your keychain and then it will pass this through for any subsequent print jobs.

In System Preferences, if you go into Sharing and enable Internet Sharing, there, share the connection of something you aren't using (say, for example, thunderbolt ethernet) then other computers can connect to it as if it was a WiFi hotspot and features that use LAN will work perfectly fine. But no internet connection will be available! EDIT: This method ...

I haven't personally experienced this problem but you may want to try this. Quit the App Store Go to Library Folder (CMD + Shift + G in Finder then "~/Library") Delete "cache/com.apple.appstore" and "cookies/com.apple.appstore.plist" Empty Trash Restart ...

Check any third party software relating to sound output management. I'm not talking about apps such as iTunes or Spotify, but rather things such as Soundflower or other apps that modify how sound is output from your system and record system sounds.

I just used Yosemite's screen sharing via Messages. Getting it to work on both sides required me to enable back to my mac in System Settings under iCloud. After restarting the Messages app on both sides those two rectangles became active and screen sharing worked.

No definitive answer, but I do have a workaround for you. Select the link including a whitespace before or after it, then use the look up function on the whitespace part of the selection.

A more recent option is to use the newer implementation of Fuse for OSX in combination with SSHFS. This is a better solution because most of the applications mentioned are either outdated or payed (and expensive). Fuse for OSX allows you to use new file systems in user space and SSHFS configures the system to allow you to connect to SSH drives ...

Try cleaning the dust bunnies out of the video card. After months of making me crazy I think I tracked it down to dust blocking the heat sink channels on my video card. I was blaming my freezed on Flash, but I realize that was working my video card just hard enough it got hot and quit. Haven't had a freeze in days.

As tubedogg has mentioned, it is the .DS_Store which stores the information related how the Finder formats a particular folder's view. By deleting the .DS_Store file using Terminal.app, you will reset the view options of that folder. However, if you are not comfortable using the terminal, you can go to Finder, and open a new window from the File menu: File ...

You have just duplicated the first part of the "why is my Mac crashing?" troubleshooting steps. If it works fine under one user and the other user, not so much then the problem is not with the O/S it is something specific to the user. Steps to fix this include booting into Safe Mode (hold Shift while booting) and logging into that account. Take the ...

Based on the previous information, the information about original location is stored within DS_Store file. In older version of OS X it was just a plain text and now binary format and it's undocumented by Apple, however there is a tool created by Wim L which can reads it. Written in perl Mac::Finder::DSStore project provides routines for reading and writing ...

You can isolate things a little if you don't mind using terminal. The trash in finder is an overlay of trash from each mounted volume and each user. Furthermore, you can see the filename of the file and search using spotlight to see if there are similar files or use spotlight to search in Time Machine to find where the file was before it was trashed. The ...

Yosemite reinstall might fix that, but if you have some crazy app it might kill it again. I assume you did the Apple Hardware test, but since one user works i doubt that. If it does, try loading in Safe mode (to exclude non apple apps), and if it hangs it might be a apple stuff. If necessary, start in Verbose mode to see where it hangs up with the ...

I've confirmed that all the dates for all the photos are correct. I'm really not sure why iTunes is syncing more than what is checked, but here's my workaround: Create a Smart Album in Photos with the parameters Date is in the last 30 days. This should correctly bundle together the photos by date. In iTunes (you may have to quit/reopen for the album to ...

I had a shortcut in Mavericks (option+T) to bring up the Tags box in Finder. Yosemite killed it, whether All Applications or Finder. Apple Support could not solve it, however I discovered that it will work if set to control+T instead.

The first thing to try is to enable Internet Sharing from System Preferences -> Sharing. Now choose the right source and destination, connect your device to WiFi shared network and try to navigate.

You should check the iPhoto/Photos app and see if any of your 2006 photos are in the Last Month tab or the April 2015 tabs. If they are then the problem is with the photos' dates, not iTunes or your iDevice.

A simple way to accomplish what you ask is to use AppleScripts. The result will be a Status menu represented by the script icon as shown below. (Hint: for a better view, click the image.) Using the Finder, navigate to your home folder. From the Finder menus select View → Show View Options. Make sure "Show Library Folder" is checked off as shown below. ...

Had the same issue. The installation can be sped up by deleting files stored in /usr/local/bin. (by rm -rf /usr/local/bin in Terminal app) It went even faster for me by using a USB stick with OS X and erasing the disk before installation. For USB stick (need stick > 8GB) see: https://support.apple.com/kb/HT201372 After reboot press alt then select the USB ...

⌘+W, ⌘+H is closing the active window and then switching to the previously active application with most decent applications. Most of the time this will be much more efficient than a switch to the Finder because we tend to go back to what was just interrupted before.

Fan function is regulated by temperature sensors. As long the temperature is to high the fan keeps working regardless if you are in sleep mode or not. Since you turned off the heat source that action is usually very short. Somewhat like you car fan, that continues to spin even if you turn off the engine if the temperature is to high.

Identical problem. Chrome Version 42.0.2311.135 (64-bit) Also a MacPro. Could it be happening only in MacPro? Have to switch to Safari for now. I have no problem with Chrome (identical settings) on MacBook.

After seeing it in Firefox too, I decided it must be hardware-related. To avoid having to open up the Mac and change out the graphics card (which required a bit of effort to get the new card in there in the first place, due to it not aligning precisely with the PCI slot opening in the back), I tried changing out the cord. (I recently switched from having it ...

According to the steps listed here, you have to connect it with a USB cable first, press the PS button until the blinking lights speed up, then disconnect the cable. The faster lights indicate it is trying to pair. Once the cable is disconnected, the Mac should request the pairing passcode which is 0000. This pairing process should only be a one-time setup, ...

See this bug on chromium. Essentially it boils down to security settings that are not available unless the Mac app (Chrome, in this case) is released through the Mac App Store. Note that due to the way Handoff is implemented in Chrome/Mac, the current tab from Chrome/Mac can be opened in Safari/iOS. When you are in Handoff range and have an open tab in ...

Could you please try to log out of all you iCloud Services, reboot and login again. I have the same issue, which occurs randomly. I'm suspecting iCloud or my Mail accounts in System Preferences.

You can do this with Keyboard Maestro. Create a macro group just for Excel, then create a macro that executes upon ⌘W which closes the window and switches focus to Finder.
