First off, Macs will happily bind to Active Directory domains - there's some variation between versions of AD and OS X, but if you're on AD 2008 or newer and OS X 10.8.3 or newer you won't have any problems. Use the Accounts preference pane, open Directory Utility for more control, or use dsconfigad from the Terminal. Once a Mac is bound, you will see it ...

Command-delete (where delete is the key called backspace on other platforms) moves the selected items to the trash. You can move files in 10.7 and later by copying them with command-C and then moving them with option-command-V. Option-command-I shows the combined size of the selected files. Command-[ goes back to the previous folder. You can view images by ...

Windows 7 should see your connected iPhone as a Photo Camera. Just use the same software that you'd use for importing individual photos from a regular USB-connected camera. In Mac you can use a builtin utility called Image Capture for this (or iPhoto or Aperture if you have those).

You can install Windows Applications on your Mac in 3 ways. Use Bootcamp to install Windows on your Mac. Requires a legal copy of Windows. Also the fastest, but you can't run Mac Applications at the same time Install a Virtual Machine, such as Parallels or VirtualBox. Performance will suffer. Use Wine to run Windows Applications. Performance will suffer ...

Yes, Apple provides a Software (including the drivers) to install Windows a Macs: Bootcamp Apple's EULA doesn't allow installing OS X on non Apple hardware. Although, some people have already done this (they call this Hackintosh) but it's tricky and you'll never have a fully functioning system (there are always bugs somewhere).

This seems to be a known issue as I remember running across a work-around the other day at TUAW: http://www.tuaw.com/2013/10/27/did-mavericks-kill-your-network-drive-access-heres-a-fix/ Basically what they are telling you to do is replace the SMB:// in the Go > Connect To Server... dialog box with CIFS:// I gather this forces the Mac to use an older ...

TotalTerminal might be a better option. TotalTerminal has a visor mode that allows it to stay on top of all the other windows. You can choose to place it anywhere on the desktop, of course, and choose to have it slide out from one of those positions when you use CTRL-~ key combo or anything else you’ve set up. Plus it’s free.

New Microsoft Remote Desktop 8 supposed to be best RDP client for Mac. Works super smooth btw.

For me it's the right ⌘ (Command) key. The left ⌘ does not work because this is set as the meta key in (my) VirtualBox.

Currently, no, this isn't possible. There's no such thing as maximising a window in OS X — I therefore presume you are referring to a window which has been stretched to fill the entire screen (as much as possible — i.e. not behind the menu bar). Since there is no difference between a window which has been enlarged and a 'maximised' window, there's no ...

I know this is not the answer you want to hear, but unfortunately there is no way to disable the discrete GPU and use the integrated graphics, when using Bootcamp. This has been discussed (to death) on support forums and on the web generally. I have thought myself in the past, that it would be useful to be able to turn off the discrete GPU just to improve ...

It sounds like you're running into the same issue I did, where after booting into Windows the VT-x shows as 'Disabled' in Task Manager. Not sure how or why, but after going into OS X System Preferences Target Disk Select the BOOTCAMP disk as the startup disk Everything was well after that and I could happily use Hyper-V, even from a cold boot. If ...

Videos recorded with iOS (your iPod 5) have the extension "MOV", but they are normal "MP4" (containing H.264 and AAC). Which means that you can change the extension to "MP4" and they will be playable on Windows. In this case (recorded on iOS and with the extension "MOV") it is not necessary to convert these files. Same for "M4V" and "M4H" (other extensions ...

The "goto fail" bug was part of a OS X library that checked that a valid SSL certificate also matched the host records it was exchanging traffic with. Since many applications use SSL first identify a web site securely and then encrypt the traffic, having the library in the core OS lets each program not have to do the work to validate a cert. By ...

This is how to fix the bootcamp windows install error: "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration." Do not try to fix with a workaround - you'll find solutions of people manually selecting their Windows partition during reboot by holding down the OPTION key. This will work, but you are circumventing the way that apple wanted you to install ...

Hold ⌥ on boot and select your OS X partition. This changes your boot partition once for that time you boot. If you want to change it permanently, boot to OS X, open System Preferences → Startup Disk and select your OS X partition, or boot to Windows, open the Boot Camp Control Panel and select the OS X partition as the boot partition. Then, you will need ...

I'd recommend WineBottler; I have about 30 apps and games that work great with Wine. A few pointers though: Check the Wine Application Database for various apps. This shows what version of Wine, what winetricks you need and what workarounds may be required. Disclaimer: I'm a super maintainer Check the official system requirements for the program/game. For ...

In essence, this is due to poor drivers in Windows. The Mac drivers have been created better than those in Windows. The problem is created because the trackpad is waiting for the possible second tap to indicate a double-click. In OS X, the drivers are simply 'smarter' and understand better when you intend to double click or click and move. Indeed, ...

Two things to try: Hold Option before pressing the power button and don't release it until you see the Boot Menu. If that doesn't work, try resetting your Macbook Pro SMC as explained here.

You can't. TextEdit files can only be accessed from TextEdit (That's how iCloud storage is made). Therefore you'll need a Mac connected to your iCloud account.

Can I just browse them in Windows Explorer on my iPhone? If not Windows Explorer, some App. If I could even get a list of Albums part of my dreams would come true. Yes, as the posters above mentioned. You can also use a tool like iExplorer, which runs on both Mac and PC, to manage your photos selectively. I do this when I don't want to mess with iTunes. ...
