comment How to access the internal hard disk with full permissions?
As you've said yourself, permissions. Using a regular admin user are you able to change the permissions of one of those folders to give yourself access? Select the folder and cmd-i to Get Info, at the bottom you'll see the permissions. You can click on the lock to change them, but this'll require an admin account.

@Annjawn That's not living dangerously, that's called living smart. When you live dangerously the inevitable eventually happens. Point in case.

comment How can I force new browser windows to open on my main display?
I've "solved" this by installing Chrome Canary and using that as the browser on my secondary display…but the question still stands.

How familiar are you with the command line interface (Terminal)? Have you tried enabling and using the root user?

comment How to display the VLC playlist and the main window simultaneously
Also just to clarify, the shortcut is cmd, (command followed by comma) This is the standard preferences combo and works in most apps.

comment How to display the VLC playlist and the main window simultaneously
You can either use that exact menu item again, or the keyboard command shown right beside it. Alternately you can use the playlist toggle button (rightmost button in the left group of control buttons at the bottom of the window).

comment How to always insert single and double quotes?
I had no idea that keyboard layouts changed this behaviour. For years and years I have assumed this to be a function of the OS, not individual layouts. Thanks again!

Thank you! This was driving me insane. What do you mean exactly by "dead keys"?

The router works, because I'm posting this form the iMac that uses it to connect to the internet. The MacBook worked perfectly fine until the iMac forced me to reset the router so it could work…

comment What are some good data recovery programs to try on an SD card?
My guess was right, the videos were still in the library's masters folder but not showing up in the application itself.
