comment Can I change iCloud ID
I have created a secondary iCloud account on my Mac (after some time fighting with Apple about its stupid security questions). I will try, and see how this works.

I tried signing out of iCloud on my Mac, unfortunately it deleted all my Calendar entries. (I logged on again, and got them back)

@FranckDernoncourt I explored lots of options early on, but was heavily influenced by ZTreeWin. "Enter" in file window will toggle this to use the full height (showing the max no of files), but I will look at the possibility.

@FranckDernoncourt I am biassed (being the author), but it does lots. It is principally designed to be used with the keyboard e.g. 'O' will Open a file (not "Enter" which has other functionality).

comment Macbook Pro OS X 10.9 Partition problem
You can only resize partitions if there are none in the way. If the free space is before the partition you cannot resize, and need to backup and restore (not to be undertaken lightly).

comment My laptop (Yosemite) is now 'PPPoE' connected over wifi, what is this and what does it mean?
The critical issue is where the network authentication occurs. With a simple DSL modem this is downstream of the modem i.e. a directly connected device. Most ADSL modems have this inbuilt (and thus require to have username/password entered into the modem), but can be configured to operate with an external client.
