I realize this is an old question but in case someone else has this issue; the answer about the screen protection is definitely wrong. Yes cheap ones can sometimes do that but the author should have read the original post more clearly. If that were the case it would happen in any app, the fact that some apps do it and others (which are all native apps) don’t ...

Limited Options As a developer wanting to distribute unsigned and unnotarized applications, your options are increasingly limited on macOS. You would not be alone disliking this trend.

This is not functionality built into macOS. Windows audio was miles behind Mac for many years, but they got this ability natively first. There are only two apps I know can do this, both by the same company, Rogue Amoeba. The cheaper & simpler one is SoundSource - $35. There is a more complex/expensive one which can also record any sound source to disk ...

Gifski makes it very easy to convert a video to an animated GIF. You just drag and drop a video, optionally trim it, choose dimensions, frame rate, and quality, click "Convert", and then done. Gifski is free, no watermark, and open source. The benefit of an app over a web service is that the video stays on your computer. Disclaimer: I'm one of the authors....

I got this problem as the result of a crash whilst working in Audacity. It wouldn't go away for several days, until I worked out how to locate and delete the temporary lock file. On a Mac, it is called "audacity-lock-", located in Audacity's "SessionData" folder, within your "Application Support/audacity" folder, generally found in your Library folder (...

The Guided Access method is the one that is usually suitable for home usage. It is, as you describe, easy to break out of if you want. If you want to protect against reboot breaking out of Guided Access, then "Single App Mode" is the way to go. In contrary to what you write, it is not necessary to have an MDM system for that to work. All you need to do is ...

But the best way I found was to create a new macOS user and change its home directory to external SSD (by going to advanced user settings under Users & Groups System Preferences). The exact steps I followed: ...

I had the same problem and now I think it's completely gone. It turned out, after updating to Catalina, that old cron jobs start a single process everytime they should run. I had a (forgotten) job running every minute and after a while I found hundreds of cron processes in Activity monitor, so I killed all of them and finally retake control on my computer. ...
