comment Does anyone know any good Diagnostic tools?
@AlexejMagura system_profiler is a command that you use in Terminal, or the Command-Line Interface (CLI). Whereas every Mac since, I'm pretty sure even before OS X, has had "System Profiler" as a program in the Graphical User Interface (GUI) of the computer system. I'm asking if the output from the command in terminal has any more detail from the output in ".app", or if it's all the same. Maybe there are flags that can be used to make the command more useful if that is the case by default.

@AlexejMagura , is the output in the CLI any different from what the GUI has?

try dwightk's suggestion of holding down "d" after reboot. This works with some models, but without knowing which you have, we can't tell you for sure. I think most ~2008+ have AHT built in. Apparently I wasn't coherent enough last night because it was supposed to be my first bullet… doh.

comment MiniDisplayPort to HDMI adapter not working
There are a number of MiniDP adapters that work out there, including Moshi (close to apple price) and Monoprice (low end) that I've had experience with, and I would trust the reviews of those in between (Kanex, I think). Do you mean it will output neither video nor audio? If it's just an audio issue, go to system preferences > Sound, and make sure output is set correctly. Some adapter/mac combos don't auto switch the audio-out on HDMI adapters.

comment Mobile Safari - link to MP3 and show album art?
Using iMovie with the mp3 as the audio stream and the album art as the video stream and exporting to .mov should work as well.

comment Can I search for a string of text inside Notes.app on an iPhone 5c (iOS 7.1)?
This can be enabled/disabled on a per (built-in) app basis in Settings.app > General> Spotlight Search.

comment Change behavior of click on desktop
I assume you mean a Finder window opens, launching the default location of new finder windows (i.e. your home folder)? As I have noticed a worsened funky window bug across all applications since 10.8.3, it's possible this is the same bug, however, I typically have so many windows open including Finder windows, that I wouldn't normally be in an identical situation.

comment How to view logs in Airport Utility v6, or install 5.6 in Mountain Lion?
This is my preferred way of doing this often when wanting to run multiple versions of the same app. Sometimes it doesn't work of course, thanks for the actual use report!

comment How do I change the Icon for a USB device?
I have had some App Icons not work with cut-n-paste, in the paste, but nowadays they seem to work okay, perhaps apple has ironed some of these bugs out.

comment Mac Mini 2011 - monitor wakes up messed up
there was also a supplemental update for 10.8.5 that fixed somebody else's monitor weirdness on here, so it's possible that it was included in a fix.

comment Mac Mini 2011 - monitor wakes up messed up
Have you tried: different cable(s) all, including monitor power cable. Have you tried using a different kind of DVI cable? There are 3 kinds, but not all of them will work with Apple's adapter/or monitors. THere are also MiniDP->DVI cables (no adapter required.) Have you reset the PRAM. Can you try using this monitor on a different Mac 10.8.5 machine and see if it affects it? Do you have Intel HD Graphics 3000 or AMD Radeon HD 6630M? Can you try using a different monitor in place of the BenQ with the same cables (still having second monitor connected).

comment Address bar in Safari gone!
I did this on a computer and it didn't stick until the computer was ALSO rebooted. You may even have to run maintenance scripts/clear caches etc.
