Tuxera is an app that makes NTFS filesystems fully readable & writable. There is a 15-Day trial for it. So you can download Windows Support, and just put it into for example your C:\Users\User\Desktop instead of putting it on a USB. If you cannot find the BOOTCAMP partition on your Desktop. Press Command+Alt+G and type /Volumes/ and there search for ...

Apple only allows building and testing apps on a Mac. There no simulator available for Windows. Installing a virtual machine on your PC with OSX running on it is against Apple's EULA.

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.

The Escape key unmaximizes Excel. Another way is to push the mouse cursor to the top edge of the screen. The menu bar would appear. A blue unmaximize button will appear in the top right corner. Finally, you can use Control-Command-F. That should work with all programs, not just Excel.

The answer is it was never worked that way. If you want it to work that way, you have to install a boot manager. The most common free one is call rEFInd. Most people install this software in the OS X partition, but this can lead to problems when you install updates. I installed rEFInd in its own partition to avoid such problems. I would go with @ryebread's ...

The Apple Bootcamp drivers for Windows aren't great when you have one finger dragging enabled. I had this problem, switching it off fixed it. Right click Bootcamp tray icon and choose "Bootcamp Control Panel". Click the "Trackpad" tab. Uncheck "Dragging".

Download BootChamp. You get a shortcut that reboots into Windows, but it doesn't change the default OS. Seems to work really well.

The answer is No. Sorry. I have done this already. Here is the problem. VirtualBox and your Apple use different hardware. If you try to switch between the hardware you are going to drive windows insane. If you first install Windows using VirtualBox's virtual hardware and a physical disk partition, then switch to Apple's physical hardware with the same ...

While VirtualBox is capable of Raw Disk Access it is not designed to use the Windows Boot Camp partition as a virtual machine. In other words it does not handle the Windows Product Activation between running it physically and virtually. VMware Fusion, a paid product, is capable of seamlessly handing using the Windows Boot Camp partition as a virtual ...

Winclone is the OS X software to backup and restore the Windows OS on a BootCamp partition. http://twocanoes.com/winclone/ It lets you escape Apple's restriction to only have two OS partitions on a drive. You still might have to delete bootcamp, but you can then restore it in working form after you've re-done the boot drive partitioning to your liking. ...

You'll need a third party utility that can repartition a live drive. The Apple software will not make additional partitions beyond the Bootcamp one. Or, the hard-but-effective way is to back everything up, wipe and repartition, then copy back. Winclone is a good program for backing up Boot Camp partitions. Personally, this issue was worth it to me to buy ...
