comment Should I upgrade RAM on my MacMini?
Look at the Activity Monitor app that Apple gave you. Older version shows pie chart for memory where you want to see a significant green slice; if just a sliver or none then you need more RAM. Newer versions show a "Memory Pressure" line chart. If rising high or changing to a color other than green, then you need more memory. Adding memory never hurts, may be a huge help, is cheap, and is easy. Buy from Mac-aware vendors such as Crucial.com, OrherWorldComputing.com.

comment Macbook Pro 13 Late 2013, BenQ GW2765HT, and Displayport cable
It might help if you mention whether you have the model with the discrete video card.

comment Why do I have 2 IPv6 addresses?
You can read more about Loopback and Localhost. In IPv4 the loopback is 127.0.0.1. In IPv6, ::1 (0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001).

comment Can I use dual 4k Dell P2815Q monitors on the Retina MacBook Pro (late 2013) with Yosemite at full resolution?
FYI: The underlying hardware is supposedly capable of handling 4K monitors. But I've yet to see an clear proof of the MacBook Pro (Retina, late 2013) actually working with 4K monitors. The Answer above is correct according the Apple specs page. But some of us wonder if that really is the limit.

comment Can I use my late 2013 MBP with Dell2515H?
@KevinGrabher Can you cite any sources or documentation on this? At least for the first one, MacBook Pro Retina Late 2013, 4K exceeds Apple's specs page though I've heard the underlying hardware may be capable. I would like to be certain before bothering to research and purchase a 4K monitor.

comment What is the maximum supported resolution of the MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013) for an external monitor at 60hz
That last line should add the qualifier "on HDMI". I believe DisplayPort through the Thunderbolt port will give better support for higher-than-HD resolutions.

comment VDCAssistant seems to be causing perpetual crash reports
That plist unload does indeed fix the problem. For me the problem occurs inside a Parallels VM running Mountain Lion, triggered by running Google Chrome.

comment Can someone clarify how many (and what types) of display the new MacBook Pro can use?
Those with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M may have better luck (but I'm not sure). This specs page says the card supports DisplayPort 1.2 including resolutions up to 3840x2160. I've no idea how that translates to the real world in a MacBook Pro.

Did you mean to say that FiftyThree Pencil does work specifically with the sketching features in Apple Notes app?

comment Recent items menus have stopped working on my iMac
To help with the screen shot problem, use the Grab app bundled with Mac OS X. Use the Timed Screen feature.

comment Recent items menus have stopped working on my iMac
While useful information, this material is not appropriate as an Answer on a Stack Exchange. The idea of SE is a specific Answer to a narrowly-focused Question. This post furthers a discussion but does not directly provide a solution to the Question. And this is a tangent, as the Question is about a setting not sticking in System Presences. The issue here may or may not be directly related. I would suggest posting as your own Question, but coincidentally I already did post the same, Disappearing "Recent Items" menu item.

comment How to cure Mail of being stuck on one message?
@WGroleau So copy what you need from the problem message, then use Web interface to delete. I don't understand why you would rather hang on to a problematic message than fix your email system.

comment New emojis don't show on Mac, only on iPhone
Your Question is not specific. What emoji character? What version of iOS? What version of Mac OS X? What apps?

Exactly how did you remove "AirDisplay"?

comment “Recent Items” menu item disappears from Apple menu
Yes, using 10.11.1. Updated Question. Perhaps you can explain more about "clear all cache resources related to your system and not your application".

comment Screen Sharing in El Capitan – Gone?
I don't know what caused the initial messages. Indeed launching that app or using the vnc: in Finder > Go > Connect to Server does indeed run the Screen Sharing app successfully.

comment How do I switch the font back to previous in El Capitan?
Curious… The new San Francisco font was supposed to have the same sizing as the previous system font to avoid this very problem. Can you list some of the apps having the problem, and post screenshots? By the way, Apple provides this WWDC presentation about this new family of system fonts for those interested in technical details.
