There are basically two ways you can run Windows on a Mac. You can run Windows in an emulator like VirtualBox, Parallels or VMWare. You get the entire functionality of Windows, but it is running within a VM on another operating system so you don't get the entire performance of the Mac as the resources are shared between Windows and OS X. But you can ...

As noted, there are 3rd-party apps. The one that I've been using for years now is MOOM. It's like Aero on steroids, and in my mind gives you better control using either hotkeys or right-click:

http://www.bettertouchtool.net/ has a 'Window Snapping' setting which will work exactly as you want. In fact, I believe it's better than the way windows does it as it can also snap to the inside edge of a multiple display desktop! I also use it to reverse the scroll direction for left-right window changes without also changing the up/down scroll ...

Now From Right top side, Move your cursor to top and press + . Finally You can Swipe between Multiple screens simply by swiping 4 fingers Right or Left. Hope you like this ...

My hardware and software differs from yours. I will first document how I tested my answer and then try to adapt the answer to your needs. Since this is a fairly long answer, the adaption will be given as a separate answer. My computer is an iMac (20-inch Mid 2007). The version of OS X is 10.10.2. I will be installing Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 Bit. I ...

When you were at the office, did you use a different network like a AT&T/Verizon/Sprint hotspot? Next time, try testing at a Starbucks or another public wifi first. More than likely the VPN server dosen't allow loop backs (meaning you are in the network to start, go out, to come back in). It probably just connected you. What VPN (server) are you ...

I actually think there's little reason to be concerned, provided in Settings > Network, your Wi-Fi or Ethernet is ahead of iPhone USB in the left-hand list. OS X will go down the list and pick the first network provider that it needs to. So long as your WiFi stays up, you're fine. I confirmed this by opening Network Utility and examining the transfer stats. ...

Thunderbolt is not backwardly-compatible with any other display technology. It is an active technology, all before it were passive. It is a combination of video & PCIe. You can connect Thunderbolt to DisplayPort, but not the other way round. From how do I connect an Apple Thunderbolt display to a PC? If the Wikipedia article is to be believed (and ...

As of writing there is no software that natively supports working with FileVault 2 encrypted drives within Windows. There are ways to access the content of a FileVault 2 encrypted volume on other platforms including Windows (for example libfvde), assuming you have the passkey and sufficient patience, but none that allow an encrypted volume to be used as a ...

Since this question has been marked as a duplicate, I have moved my answer to the other question. Please see my answer posted at Boot camp install of Windows 7 issue, no bootable devices.

You can install unsupported operating systems such as Linux or older Windows versions by not using the bootcamp assistant. Open disk utility and create a partition, format it FAT. Then reboot whole holding alt/option and boot from the install-disc (CD, DVD, USB drive, ...) and install as usual. Now comes the tricky part. Since the OS is not officially ...

You can use Better Touch Tool. There's the possibility to maximize the the window, take only half of the screen etc. Just like in Windows. Additionally You get great tool to assign custom keyboard shortcuts and mouse/touchpad gestures.

Here's one way of doing it, it's not elegant but it will work. Download and install Virtualbox and install Windows on it from your .ISO file. This will verify your .ISO is working. Once you've got Windows installed, download Rufus. This will create a bootable USB drive that will boot your MacBook, assuming the .ISO is good to begin with. Once that's done ...
