@unmircea, You could possibly try this.

One more thing you might not be aware of is that after you control-click Show All and the menu appears you can press the Option key which will allow you to Sort By rather than Arrange By. Pressing Option within Finder menus has this behavior in many places (eg. File > Save would become Save as...).

comment My Files are all classified as “Other”
@vihan1086, Sure I'd be happy to write that up as an answer. For your PDF documents you would normally find them under Kind, but you can also sort by multiple criteria. For example you could specify sort by Kind, and Tag with Image or PDF — hope that makes sense.

comment Is it possible to wipe an entire iCloud Photo Library?
I just can't fathom why they wouldn't have been able to delete all of the photos as you wanted. Do they not have control of their own servers? If there were something on their servers that urgently needed to be removed they might not even be capable of doing it — that's not very reassuring.

@vihan1086, It looks like you've got your view options set to show only tags — specifically other. In the right hand corner of the All My Files window Control-Click the text that reads Show All (1,950). You should then see a menu which lets to Arrange or Sort by Name, Kind, etc.

Did they indicate why they couldn't delete the 15 remaining photos? I find the entire situation odd myself. Good thing Hilary Clinton doesn't use an iPhone; she might have to dispatch a predator drone to wipe out her photos. I'm sure she'll rest easier knowing they're safely under her control in the Bahamas.

You could try setting it to around when the albums were created, then try and delete them; or you could try setting it a month back - delete, then set it two months back, delete. This technique has worked for some people, so it might be worth a try.

comment iCloud keeps signing in after I sign out
@MikeyT.K. Try blocking icloud.com in /etc/hosts by adding 127.0.0.1 icloud.com — it shouldn't be able to sign-in after that.

Try setting the date back manually a month or more on your IOS device.

Why do you quote "./myapp.app"?

comment Force the resolution on a headless mac mini server
@cwd, There are no instructions, other than download, unzip and double-click the installer. I direct linked it because it's convenient, although if you want to go through one more step click here. "-1" all you want, even though I think it's rather silly since you can't figure out how to use something, or don't think it's "intuitive". I've given a couple alternatives as well - which I think might be better anyway.
