I wrote a command line tool called displayplacer that let's you change screen resolutions through scripts for both single and multi-monitor setups. Configure your screens how you like and execute displayplacer list. It will display the command to run to configure and arrange your screens in their current setup. For example, this sets my 4K screen to "1080p"...

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. This related question, How to get serial number from Mac hard disks? might help if you think you have an HDD.

Very late to the party, but, if you can't seem to find the locked disk in Finder, you can use the Disk Utility program from the Applications > Utilities folder. The drive, once attached via USB, will be listed there, select it, and select "Mount". The password prompt will be triggered, enter the disk password and you should be set.

Just drag your folder to the "Favorites" panel and it will be the root folder for that window. You can see the full path at the bottom, my folder (Mateus) is deep in the HD but the parent columns are not showing.

Note that this works for me in macOS High Sierra, but as mentioned in a comment does not work in macOS Mojave. One of the ways I know how to have the target folder be the left most column while in Column view in Finder is to do the following: While in Column view, highlight (select) the target folder. Either press ControlCommandO or right-click and select: ...

/etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 localhost ibb.local I've had a similar issue on my mac a while ago, and nothing past the first declaration per IP was active. Listing all domain names that need to route to 127.0.0.1 on the same line addressed the issue. Unless something is sneakily misspelled, your config looks OK otherwise. (And I also used something**.local** and ...

Wake on Lan only works if the Mac is sleeping. You cannot wake up a Mac that has been shutdown no matter what third party apps you have. Mac's are not designed to Wake-up from LAN when shutdown for security reasons.

@Nimesh Neema, the SDKs are stored in /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/, and I got the 10.12 SDK from here. It works.

You cannot limit kernel_task since it is the enforcer of all tasks and does the limiting and scheduling of other tasks that run. To reiterate, kernel_task only does two things when it’s showing high CPU allocation: When the CPU measures too hot temperatures, it throttles things. It’s not busy, it’s just putting one or more portions of the processor in time ...

By default, applications that don't have a build-in option to configure proxy settings will automatically use the system proxy. However, for certain applications (like Terminal), no proxy will be used. If you want to have a system-wide proxy that can't be circumnavigate, take a look at "VPN Plus". Basically it creates a "network tunnel" in the system ...

Kernel_task is not just one process, but a representation of all the kernel's input and output. High k_t usage can be a symptom of problems, rather than a cause in itself that needs to be corrected. Causes could include third-party kexts, Spotlight indexing, or other background processes. One of its functions is to use up CPU as a means of restricting other ...

First item, you get two sessions max. If you are struggling with the first or second session, then the issue could be your VNC software that connects to the mac isn’t following Apple’s conventions to allow the second session to start. Since you didn’t specify versions of software you use on the connecting side, I’ll guess and give general advice. There is ...

Many condolences. The 15" MBPs from 2011/2012 had a very high frequency of hardware failures on the logic board, specifically the onboard graphics. From recollection, it was a manufacturing fault that was not suspected by Apple's hardware designers until large numbers of them started to fail in the wild, leading to a class-action suit against Apple, which ...
