Please check that the iTunes Store is not disabled in the Restrictions pane in iTunes preferences (see screenshot below). App Store functionality has been removed in iTunes 12.7 and later. Apple provides a version of iTunes which still contains the App section and App Store. Please see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208079 for more info and download ...

So since I'm supposedly the only one who cares I'll provide an answer for fictitious others : thanks to @TomGewecke for finding two good solutions : 1 : replace current keyboard layout with PC version Invert command and control : then in a terminal, type : sudo rm /Library/Preferences/com.apple.keyboardtype.plist and then replug the keyboard OR 2 : ...

In Mojave, simply two finger click on the trackpad will generate right click effect, such as spell check over red squiggly lines words on text to correct the spelling.

Try this, go to system preferences then network preferences. Select Thunderbolt Ethernet and "make service inactive" (click sprocket icon at the bottom) This improved my WiFi connection speed. My thought being that Thunderbolt is a multipurpose port also used for ethernet and may be taking priority when it is plugged into any device. If you are using WiFi ...

Here is a quick solution which assumes that Homebrew is up-to-date and there is no need to use any other packages from the adoptopenjdk/openjdk tap: Check the state of adoptopenjdk/openjdk tap and adoptopenjdk8 package: brew tap - lists which taps are currently enabled brew search adoptopenjdk8 - shows which adoptopenjdk8 casks are available from the ...

Go to the Applications folder in the Finder tool; right-click on the unwanted application; click "Move to trash", and enter the password if requested by the system; then empty the trash.

Most Mac apps allow you to create duplicate windows of the same document, if they have a "New Window" menu item in the Window menu. You can then arrange these two windows of the same document (views of the same window, if you like) as you wish. I think that's the best you're going to get natively without some additional software.

There are two parts to this: Preparing your content: screenshot the pages you want to present. Use Cmd+Shift+4 to get all the screens.

The OneNote app (version 16.x) can be downloaded for O365 subscribers https://portal.office.com If for some reason, you need a really old version, you can try installing the unsupported Office 2011 Mac, which has One Note inbuilt. While installing you can choose to install only one note, excluding the rest.

Yes, this is a malicious app. Try downloading Malwarebytes from online to remove it. Or search for "feedback" in finder to try and locate the app.

The screen sharing service uses TCP port 5900. If indeed you have arranged so that you can connect to it if you only know the IP, that port should appear as open from outside. Now, if you know what dynamic IP address it had before it changed, you can check WHOIS database to see the whole IP range that address belongs in. Chances are good that the new IP ...

On the remote computer, save this following AppleScript code in a new Script Editor.App document (Script Editor.App is located here... /Applications/Utilities/Script Editor.app) as a "Stay Open" application.

Ah! Yeah... your options at this point are limited. The ISP might help you as it's their DHCP that assigned the address; they'd be the only ones that would know that. This has happened to me, and as my ISP is comcast, there is no help. In the future :), what you need is "Dynamic DNS"; available free from several sources. I use FreeDNS. It's kind of funky,...

If the person on the other Mac is signed in with their Apple ID, you can simply start a iMessage session, click on the Details button and click on the Screen Sharing icon to start a screen sharing session. You can both ask them to share their screen or invite to share your screen. This approach works seemlessly without needing an explicit IP address. You'...

Probably not, especially if the Mac is behind a router, most of which block incoming connections. In the future, I'd recommend using something like Screens or Jump Desktop which both have companion apps which will work around the various connection issues and allow you to connect remotely without needing to know the IP address.

Apple Menu -> About This Mac -> System Report -> Hardware -> SATA/SATA Express For my MacBook Pro (Early 2015) this showed the Serial-ATA Device Tree, from which I was able to get the model number for my SSD.

You can add key commands for any menu item in any app, or even globally. For one like this, globally might be the best approach - I actually use it in Safari as well as TextEdit.

You can try to turn off the feature via the Debug menu.

I could not recreate what you have said is happening to you. Saying that I would say that: It is really very dangerous to invoke local as your alias Because the word local is a shell builtin, a reserved word for the default Bash shell to define a local variable in Bash script. If you do type local from a new terminal window after removing it from your ...

Terminal app sudo rm -r /* It's not going to smash the system but it will cause a lot of damage (might need an additional -f flag).

If the Mac hardware is physically in good order and not broken, then all that remains is software, and that can always be restored. If the internal storage (SSD, hard drive) still functions, then it can be erased, and the OS re-installed. You will then have a working Mac. However, it remains unclear why you would want to render a Mac unrepairable for ...

Your qwertyuiop result indicates that your machine thinks that both option and shift are being held down while you type. The symbols are not random but exactly what is supposed to happen when those keys are depressed. Normally this would indicate a damaged keyboard, especially if you try another one and it works ok.

It depends how you installed them. For future use, I'd use homebrew to install everything and then uninstall is done with brew uninstall. Homebrew has become a huge open source project with both individual and corporate support. Actually, I can't easily find any way to install Nginx or MariaDB on macOS without using homebrew. So maybe brew uninstall nginx ...

Intel Intrinsics are really just a library that provides easier access to a number of Intel instructions sets - such as SSE (Streaming SIMD Extensions), AVX, etc. - for C programmers.

Trying stopping the process - nginx -s stop should shut the server down. To restart it, run which nginx to tell you where it's running from. Then run the main executable.

If the actual filename is ~file.docx then use: rm '~file.docx' Using single quotes keeps the shell from expanding the ~ character. As the file is hidden, you can use SetFile -a v '~file.docx' to first unhide it and then just right-click and select: Move to Trash

To use @user3439894's answer with find, use the -exec command {} + clause, and put the for loop into a sh script: find some/path -iname \*.img -exec sh -c 'for f in "$@"; do m="$(GetFileInfo -m "$f")"; SetFile -m "$m" -d "$m" "$f"; done' sh {} + The 2nd "sh" will become the $0 inside the spawned shell, and the .img filenames will be the positional ...

Incorrect. You need the latest Xcode if you're going to submit the app to the app store. If you're developing for personal use or to learn, Pratik's advice is okay. If you're going to develop and ship, you'll need a friend who can run the most recent Xcode.

"Resolution" is not the number of pixels, but the number of pixels per inch, or centimeter, or other unit. Most image formats contain data about the resolution: i.e. how many image pixels should appear in a given screen area. If the smaller image has a resolution of 72 pixels per inch, and the larger image a resolution of c. 200 ppi, then they will appear ...

Nothing worked for me, but I ripped the sensor out of my Bluedio T5S and now I don't have the issue any more. Actually made them a lot better as they would disconnect frequently just from moving around.
