comment Make the green full screen window icon on Yosemite maximize windows
@Jonathan, I was wrong; it's not related to the proxy icon. It simply doesn't work in many applications, like Chrome, Firefox, Spotify, TextWrangler, ...

Option, not Alt. (Though the key is also labelled Alt in case one is controlling some non-OS X system.)

This is not true for all applications. Like it does not work in Chrome, Firefox and TextWrangler.

@Jonathan, true for windows that have a proxy icon, but not for, for example, Chrome.

comment How do I get F11 and F12 to behave like normal function keys?
In OS X 10.9 Mavericks (and possibly earlier too), the same setting can also be changed from Keyboard, Shortcuts, in the Mission Control section there.

Doesn't editing .nib files break the digital signature, and hence might break software updates?

Are you using 2 Step Authentication in Gmail? Then what if you generate a new application specific password and use that for the Gmail SMTP server?

comment Time Machine drive encryption going for 22 hours. Is it stalled?
Being used to the above, I was quite surprised that erasing a disk and enabling encryption in Disk Utility, and then copying lots of data to that empty disk, shows "Complete" right after the copying is done. But erasing/encrypting a disk and then use that for Time Machine indeed needs a looooong encryption process after the first backup is complete. (So, both start with an erased and encrypted disk. Actually: I'm more surprised that Time Machine uses a post-encryption step if the disk was already marked encrypted when erasing it.)

comment How to view progress when encrypting a disk?
Would you know if it's expected that erasing a disk (formatting) with enabling encryption, and then copying 50GB of files to that shows the "Complete" state immediately when copying is done? But when doing the same for Time Machine (first erasing and enabling encryption), TM goes into (another?) long lasting encryption process when the first backup is complete? Both start with an empty, encrypted disk...

comment Is there an option to show the real url when you do search on Safari 6?
@CajunLuke, I'm still seeing Safari showing the search words, not the URL. However, Google itself sometimes uses URLs that Safari does not understand. Using the example URL from the question still shows this annoying behavior in my 6.0.1.

comment Can I make Option+click on the Volume icon list all AirPlay output devices?
Interesting, @Alex. Is one of your outputs an Apple TV? (Maybe that's causing things to be different, as it's also shown in the AirPlay Mirroring for the display.) I tried in the Guest account; no changes.

comment Use curl to download images from website using wildcard?
No matter what, I'd say it has little to do with Apple and there's many related posts on Super User. (And Jack's answer is correct.)
