Slate is a very powerful free Mac app that does exactly what you want. When you plug in your secondary monitor, it automatically detects the new monitor, and all of your windows will be moved and resized just the way you like them. You can define custom positions and sizes for all of your applications, including full screen, half screen, and grid-based. One ...

If you have this drive set up as a Time Machine backup, this means that you have formatted it as HFS+, the Mac hard disk format. Windows can not usually read this format. The problem is that if you change the drive to a different format, it will mean that you need to put all the data back on it afterwards (reformatting a drive deletes everything on that ...

If you're using Time Machine on the disk, the disk is Mac OS Extended formatted which can't be read by Windows without additional software. You can use the Boot Camp drivers which integrates HFS read/write into Explorer. http://support.apple.com/kb/DL830 Alternatively, you can use HFSExplorer: HFSExplorer is an application that can read ...

According to the license for OS X, you are not allowed to run it on non-Apple hardware. If any emulators do exist, or methods to hack existing virtualization software to run it on non-Apple hardware, that would not be legal. Legally, you could technically buy some Apple hardware like an iMac or Mac Pro, install Windows on it, and then run virtualized OS X ...

the answer is Fn + m however, to make it work: Run the On-Screen Keyboard (Windows 2012: Windows Key + C to bring up the charms, click Search, type "keyboard") Click on Options Turn on numeric key pad Make sure NumLock is turned off (so you can see the Ins key where the 0 would be) on the regular keyboard the "m" is where the 0 is, therefore Fn + m = ...

Folks, be CAREFUL with domain level guest access. It opens your entire Windows network up to anyone who can access the network (Microsoft leaves this off for a reason). If you have to share the folder on your DC then your best bet is to make an account, (call it MacGuest or whatever you want). Assign it a password that doesn't expire and can't be changed ...

Yes, you can do what you are doing. You need to enable the local "Guest" account on the server that you are sharing from in order for guest authentication to work. I tried initially with sharing the folder with "Guest" and trying to access as a Guest from Mac OS X, but was met with the permissions issue that you describe. However, if you enable the Guest ...

According to Real VNC support, this is a 10.7 issue. I sort of confirmed it by successfully using Real VNC to connect to 10.6.8 and 10.9.3 hosts. Regretfully my Mac Pro (2,1) is too old in the tooth for OS X 10.9.x, so I have to figure out a different solution.

There is no current option to accomplish the said goal. I understand the frustration. OS X isn't doing exactly great on windows management, partly because Microsoft has patterns on certain operation design.

Recent versions of Mac OS X (definitely Mavericks 10.9, possibly Mountain Lion 10.8) have fixed this bug so that forms filled using Preview.app are properly compatible with Adobe Reader.

The keycombination fn + i is resulting in the same as insert does on Windows.

For all conversion tasks, I like to recommend Handbrake. There are versions for MacOS, Windows and Linux, and its use does not involve messing around with command lines.

If Windows is set to use both IPv6 and IPv4, ipconfig will output both addresses. IPv6 has the format that you mentioned. IPv4, however, is probably what you are looking for. This is an x.x.x.x formatted address. When running ipconfig, notice the lines containing "IPv6 Address" and "IPv4 Address". Both will be listed.

IP addresses come in two major flavors, IPv4 and IPv6. There can be multiple ipv6 addresses per interface. The fe80:... is a link-local address for ipv6. Your ipv4 addresses are listed separately. For example 192.168.10.10 ....

If you go to your Amazon Music Library and log in, you should be able to select tracks and a download button will appear. There is an app you will have to download, I'm not sure if it will run on Windows XP though.

Boot Camp is the fastest, easiest and most stable method, although Parallels is also available and is often used.


1

You can do it without using Boot Camp, just make this few steps: Install rEFIt. Resize your disk so you get some free space for vista. Create a new partition from that free space. Boot up your Mac with the Vista install disk inserted. Install Vista onto the new created partition. If you need a more detailed How-To/Tutorial/Manual/Assist (or what ever you ...

You can convert those MOV Videos and other by a lot of Video Converters Out there in the Internet. E.g. VLC, Miro, and many more http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=mov%20to%20wmv But keep in mind converting to WAV gives you an Audio File. I recommend you to convert in either WMV (Windows Media Video) AVI (Audio Video Interleave). But it can be even simpler if you ...

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 ...

use keyremap4macbook. It adds all these options and it's easy to add new mappings on your own - eg for media keys and so on. Also you can make the remaps device specific so a mac keyboard will work as usual.

That sounds like the main difference between a US and a UK keyboard. On a UK keyboard the " is above the number 2, and on a US keyboard the @ is above the 2. Is the keyboard UK or US? And is the Mac set to have a UK or a US keyboard attached?

There is currently no way to send SMS from a PC or a Mac. As you mentioned you can currently send iMessages from a Mac, and you will be able to send both iMessages and SMS from a Mac once OS X Yosemite is released (according to apple.com) EDIT: A quick Google search for "send iphone sms from pc" found this: http://www.myphonedesktop.com/
