Here's an updated procedure for Windows 10, based on orkoden's excellent answer. I tested this process on a MacBookPro11,1 running OS X 10.11.5 (15F34). Throughout the process, directly connect all devices to your Mac. I found that certain operations failed more frequently if I used the USB hub in my monitor. In addition to the external drive that will ...

Installing Apps There are several ways to install applications on OS X. The App Store: Another way to install applications is from the App Store.

The new Keyboard driver on Bootcamp broke the connection for my keyboard under Windows 10 and it might break yours too. So after using the solution from Zidad for the last couple of months (thank you) I decided to find a better solution to be able to use the Fn button and all the volume and multimedia functions of the Apple keyboard, here is what you need ...

When you don't use the Boot Camp utility to remove Windows, the Windows boot image on your EFI partition is not removed. This is what you see when you hold down ⌥ during boot. The procedure to solve this is not for the faint of heart. You need to mount the EFI partition in OS X (normally, it only gets mounted for system updates). Mounting the EFI partition ...

Short answer: No. This feature does not exist on Macs. On a side note, it's also useless in Windows too. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, CTRL+ALT+DEL sent a hardware interrupt to the PC's BIOS (which would immediately reboot the computer in the DOS days). That interrupt also had the happy side-effect of breaking things like keyloggers and ...

Running the VM from a USB drive is definitely possible, but far from optimal. I use VM for running Project and Visio on my mac (never from USB though), and it made a huge difference when I switched to SSD. Some numbers: A decent internal SSD will have a speed (sequential read/write) of around 500 MB/s while a fast external SSD will do around 300 MB/s, and ...

Simple answer: No. Apple does not allow iOS to run anywhere else but iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) and the Xcode simulator. You could simulate OS X on your Windows VM application and then use Xcode to simulate an iOS device, but this would be really taxing on your computer and really not worth the effort, but you cannot simulate iOS directly on ...

I updated from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro 15 inch Retina 2013. Best is not to do a clean install but choose to upgrade the existing OS, Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. This will avoid a lot of problems with the authentication key you need for Windows 10 and the necessary drivers. Windows 10 will use the Bootcamp Windows 8. 1 drivers which are ...

I think the best option here is to use Microsoft Remote Desktop. This is different than the Remote Desktop Client you mention. It has a orangish / red icon and can be found in the app store for free. During setup for the connection there is an option for resolution, have that selected to "native" and you should be able to take advantage of full screen. I ...

According to Apple's Knowledge Base article, your iMac isn't supported directly in Boot Camp. https://support.apple.com/kb/HT204990 You should probably get VirtualBox or another VM solution to run the Windows 10 as that would bridge the driver gap better than trying to piece things together yourself. It might be possible, but I don't know where you'd ...

Stay with the Windows path style and install WinShortcutter 3.5 (Freeware) on the Mac side. Since you are using mapped drives on the Windows PCs: e.g. S:\Main Folder\Folder1... you have to configure the proper mappings e.g \\Share\pictures\ -> S:\ in the app on every Mac though.
