The link listed in "Where from" is stored as an extended attribute named "com.apple.metadata:kMDItemWhereFroms" on the file in the file system - it is not actually saved within the .mkv file itself. You can remove it by opening Terminal.app and running the following command: xattr -d com.apple.metadata:kMDItemWhereFroms filename.mkv where filename.mkv is ...

Indeed, it was a more wide-spread and general issue with Google. However, I had opened a formal trouble ticket with them, which eventually got recognized, acknowledged, escalated, worked upon and resolved, by about 10:30 am PST 8/23/19. However, you may need to still purge your calendar cache files: go to calendar.app, go to settings, go to accounts, ...

You need to select any one photo in the folder you made to be able to see the change picture button, checking which will enable random too.

I have experienced problems using sparsebundles on APFS volumes, whereby writing ~50gb lead to a backup that had incorrect checksums (determined by running tmutil verifychecksums and seeing a failure). I then switch to using sparsebundles on HFS+ volumes, and no more problems. Worth mentioning that you are probably using sparsebundles that are themselves ...

I have solved this problem by removing my Google account in Mail and making my Google Gmail address a normal (IMAP) account. Sinds then no more pop-ups.

I actually happened to find the answer recently, and I'll post it here for anyone who might need it: if [[ "$(pmset -g | grep ' sleep')" == *"coreaudiod"* ]]; then echo audio is playing; else echo no audio playing I discovered the pmset method from this post, but I added some things to it.

You can find the cause using the Logger, here are several examples [if you need any detailed info], and at the end I show how to use the best 3 combinations for your case (video included): On the end, using the 3 commands, they monitor in realtime any DNS changes by directly monitoring the system configuration root daemon, also any Network System ...

There may be a less drastic explanation for this. I had the exact same issue and found that this happens after using slack for calls where I share my screen. So just restart slack after your call has ended. Haven't tested it with other screen sharing software yet.

No - do not disturb is a system level function on macOS and iOS. What you’d need to do is make an AppleScript or other tool to automate disabling notifications for that app and then possible hook that up to a timer app or trigger (or just remind yourself to toggle it with a keyboard shortcut when your other manual timer goes off). So a third party app on ...

JBis’ answer is correct, only the regex string has changed in recent 10.14 versions. In 10.14.6, the regex to be changed is '^$|.{4,}+' And to reduce the minimum amount of characters in a password, you can just change the number 4 to 1, for example. Works like a charm. (Couldn’t post is a comment, it wouldn’t let me).

As a workaround, I'd set up a keyboard shortcut in Safari for both Pin Tab and Unpin Tab to the same shortcut, e.g., ⌥⌘P and then you can toggle the pinned status of the Tab with the same keyboard shortcut. This way when a Tab is pinned and you want to close it, using the keyboard, you'd first press, e.g., ⌥⌘P then: ⌘W System Preferences > Keyboard > ...

I am not sure whether you have tried this step or not. Open Terminal window from LaunchPad. First, turn off Spotlight: sudo mdutil -a -i off Next, unload the metadata file that controls Spotlight’s index: sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist Use the following command to re-loads the index : sudo ...

If you place an alias of the Feedback Assistant in the, e.g., Applications folder in Finder, it will show in Launchpad, without having to pin it to the Dock. In Finder, navigate to, or use: Go > Go to Folder… /System/Library/CoreServices/Applications Select the Feedback Assistant app and then drag and drop while pressing ⌥⌘ to the Applications folder to ...

This is a source of confusion to many. In List view, the default paste location will be the outermost folder the window is opened from, ie the one named in the window header. Workarounds are to either Cmd/double click to open your destination in a new window, or more simply right click your destination folder & use Paste Item from there.

The granddaddy of macOS modifications DefaultFolderX that has been around since "classic" Mac OS does not even offer this option. Making me think that is not something that is available. And after 20+ years working on Macs I have not seen anything like that I would generally think that there is no mechanism available to end-users that allows you to do this. ...

For clarity, the original post is asking about mathematical (linear algebra) libraries (usually in FORTRAN or C) that are included with macOS Mojave, specifically LAPACK (Linear Algebra PACKage), BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms), and ATLAS (Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software). These libraries are included in the Accelerate framework, ...

Eject the device properly to avoid any chance of errors. I have seen several devices trashed by just disconnecting... Reformatting made them useable again.

"...at the local library network..." Most likely the library's firewall/router appliance blocks RDP. This is a good security measure to keep bad actors from attempting to take control of compromised PCs inside the library's public net, as well as keeping bandwidth down from users who should be using the library net for library-related activities such as ...

Disk Utility's ability to do block-copy was never very good, and was further hamstrung when APFS entered the scene and the job of handling DMGs was handed over to the Finder. It has always had troubles dealing with non-Apple file-systems, which is the main reason Winclone was born. You're dealing with a container-ised NTFS volume, there aren't any tools in ...

Karabiner should be able to do that for you. If this is a USB device, you might be able to do use Keyboard Maestro too.

This is same as the shortcut you're trying. Apple logo in the menu bar in top left corner-> Force Quit. This should be done from an app whose menu bar is not in the hang(spin-ball) state. To achieve this, I normally click on desktop to get Finder. A different approach, type Activity Monitor.app in spotlight(cmd+space) or via launchpad or via Applications ...

I used gparted on a Linux machine (Raspberry Pi) to delete the partition table. Disk Utility then recognised it, and I could create a GPT partition table. Added to Time Machine and it seems to be working (150GB to go) 🤞.

I've had this problem for 2 years across 3 different Macbook Pros. I think it has something to do with the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock. If I unplug the dock during boot or shutdown, all those X86PlatformPlugin Result 0 messages go away and everything speeds up. [edit] I found the problem! I have a collection of OWC USB3-to-eSATA adapters. One (older Western ...
