comment Sound doesn't work when I plug in headphones
Occasionally without thinking, I've plugged headphones in the second little input on the left side of my MBPro - the holes are identical - but if you look very, very closely, there are symbols ... it's the first that is the headphone jack.

Have you possibly selected Search This Mac = in Finder Preferences, Advanced - when what you really want is Search Current Folder?

comment CTRL key not working properly
I used a little rubbing alcohol on a q-tip, to get a bit of the alcohol under some sticky keys (ok, food spill) and tapped them a few times... it cleaned and then evaporated. Previously, when left-control stopped working and still had Applecare - they replace keyboard.

This behavior has meant a failing (or failed) motherboard in the past.

comment connecting yosemite to wifi 5ghz networks at channels > 149
The question is not clear, some of it seems to be in the title ... but why channel 149? If you can't connect to your 5Ghz at all, let us know.

comment File Open/Save dialog boxes hang infinitely
The usual diagnostics done? Do you own Disk Warrior? An SMC reset for your machine, a startup from the Recovery Disk (partition) & run Disk Utility from there ... but I repeat, often a reinstall solves.

comment Wi-Fi fails to connect after OS X 10.10.2 Update
... just to add, an app like WiFi Scanner (accessagility.com) will see your networks (hello, Apple).... connecting that way gets future Yosemite recognition going.

Sourcerer, thanks for adding that. It is indeed way glitchier in Yosemite to get on your own 5G network. I should have added,create both network in Airport utility - using some offbeat channels - and once you're on, try switching networks in the network menu extra.

Got iClock Pro? You've got some app that strikes on the hour, probably in menubar. Look thru your login items.

comment Quickly disable internet browsing on iOS device for parental control
I don't know if this is any quicker, but you could chqnge your DNS servers to Opewn DNS, having first selected your filters - tho they have many preselected sets.

comment Wi-Fi fails to connect after OS X 10.10.2 Update
Sounds pretty basic, but creating an open Guest network and connecting to that has allowed devices future connections to regular passworded network.

There were a number of QL Generators around when QuickLook was new, one of which browsed zips/archives. Now they seem to be in app packages ...

The first step is always to trash the Preferences file, whatever the app, as they do become corrupt. Then install a fresh copy.
