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 ...

I personally feel that speed tests such as these are of theoretical interest but not of any value in the real world.

A couple of options come to mind. You can try both and see which works best for you. 1) you can install VNC for Windows (there are several versions) on her machine Most are free and should work with the OSX vnc client application.

Reopen the destination folder by clicking on the appropriate dock (Finder) window icon located near the trash can and move or copy the file on the desktop (tested with 10.7.5 Lion and 10.10.3 ...

Rob has the gist of this because Apple has not released official Windows 10 drivers and installing Windows 10 on your Mac may or may not work. That said often times you can use previous Windows version drivers on the next version. That often worked when Windows 7 came out, you could use Vista drivers and they usually worked. So it is possible that ...

I am currently using Windows 10 TP (Technical Preview Build: 10240) on my MacBook Pro Late 2011. I am using Boot Camp with the drivers made for previous Windows versions.

Like the others have said, Apple has ceased development for it. The latest Windows version is 5.1.7 and you can find it in several places including FileHippo (http://filehippo.com/download_safari/) It will give you warnings galore, that its not the latest most secure browser, but if you must run it for some reason - there it is.

Tuxera is an app that makes NTFS filesystems fully readable & writable. There is a 15-Day trial for it.

There is no way to reinstall OS X without formatting and losing data. If you want to keep your data, recover the data to another drive or to the cloud.

How to install Windows without using the BootCamp Assistant. Download and copy the Boot Camp Support Software to a flash drive. You will need this later.

Apple most likely stopped Safari for Windows due to it's small marketshare on Windows and lack of explicit reason to continue it. The browser never had anything special and didn't provide any source of income either. Chrome and Midori both did WebKit on Windows anyway ( at the point of discontinuation ). Nonetheless they still keep up the WebKit Project ...

The access to the OS X partition on Windows is managed through the HFS+ driver. If you uninstall it from Windows, the OS X partition will become inaccessible from Windows. It does virtually protect you from any kind of attack, unless a malware include itself the drivers (I hardly see that happening) or it simply deletes the whole partition. However, you ...

Just make sure the USB drive is formatted with GPT and not MBR. What might be easier, however, is that that model has support for Internet Recovery. If you boot ...

You could use BootCamp, but that would require you to buy Windows. The next best thing I can think of trying is Wine, which can run (some) Windows programs on a Mac. To check if your program has been tested to work under Wine, check the WineHQ app database. The database may not include a test of your program, so try running your program using WineBottler ...
