Apple has provided this functionality as part of its OS X El Capitan. Here are the steps: Click and hold on the green maximize button of an active window (for example, a Safari window); When the window shrinks slightly and the background becomes highlighted, you’re about to enter Split View, while continuing to hold the green button drag the active window ...

You don't need to boot into OSX to change the default boot system ... Hold down the Option key when booting, and when you see the system choices Select your desired default boot device, then hover mouse over the up-arrow ↑ Hold down the Ctrl key and you should see the ↑ icon change to a "power on" icon Left click on that "power icon" and that system will ...

I use BTT (Better Touch Tool) which includes window snapping, as well as a whole host of other useful features such as extra multitouch gestures, and button management. You can use as much or as little as you want, but window snapping is on by default and just means you drag an application to the top to maximise it, left to align and fill the left half, and ...

You can set the default boot disk in System Preferences>Startup Disk.

I followed this tutor here and got success: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hE8If6gabUI. The "Create a Windows 7 install disk" option is hidden because your system's capabilities are limited. For instance, older Macs can not boot from external USB disks, therefore creating an installer onto a USB disk would make no sense. Still, if you want to create an ...

I'm using VMWare Fusion 5.0.3. With vmwaretools installed, it's very easy to change the resolution on the Windows VM: go to Virtual Machine > Settings > Display there is a checkbox Use full resolution for Retina display uncheck it and the vm changes back to normal resolution.

Yes, It is possible to download the Bootcamp drivers outside of the Bootcamp tool: Updated: timothy-sutton's answer will make your life so much easier, go there first For Windows 7 through 10, Apple have published a table of 'which download you need for which model' at https://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634. Win 7 download might work for Vista. For WinXP, ...

My favorite is Spectacle Out of the box your shortcuts works exactly as you describe in your question. ⌘ ⌥ ← left half side of the screen, and ⌘ ⌥ → for the right. It also supports assigning a shortcut for moving a window to another screen:

You can do this by creating a Smart Playlist: (I'm using a Mac, but it will be similar for you) Set the "Album Artwork" rule to "false": This will update automatically as you add artwork to your albums. And you can simply delete this playlist when you're done.

Thunderbolt-equipped iMacs prior to iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014) (see this document), like your iMac (Mid 2011), support Target Display mode: Target Display Mode lets you use your iMac as the external display for another, “primary” computer. Thunderbolt-only solution NOTE: This won't work for iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014) and later iMac ...

Installing Windows 7 or 10 Pro 64 bit without DVD or Flash Drive Special thanks to user Rafa, who was able to correct this procedure so it now works with Windows 10. Here I assume your computer is configured as required by the Boot Camp Assistant. (In other words, you will be installing Windows to the 4th partition on disk 0.) Also, your firmware is up ...

I have written a tool that helps me deploy Boot Camp in an organization where we manage a dual-boot lab environment, and one of its features is that it can download the driver package for arbitrary models: https://github.com/timsutton/brigadier Either git clone or download an archive of the repo, then within the root of the repo (using an iMac15,1 here as ...

It cannot be installed on the iPad 2. The processor in the iPad is an ARM processor and Windows (up to and including Windows 7) can only run on x86 processors, such as those from Intel and AMD. (There are other reasons that running Windows would be impossible, but this is the most important reason.)

I use a program called AirParrot to mirror my Windows PC to my Apple TV (third generation). There is also a version that works on Macs. Note that the ability to mirror a Mac to an AppleTV is a new feature of OS X Mountain Lion.

Another tool is Moom (5$ in the Apple Store): you can divide the screen in a number of squares and define keyboard shortcut to position the windows. Several standard placements are already defined by default (right/left half, bottom/top half, ...) I never used anything else (I'm very happy with Moom) but DoublePane was mentioned several time on AskDifferent ...

Bootcamp can create a USB for PC. Just only check the "Create a Windows 7 or later version install disk" checkbox. A similar question from How to create a Windows 7 installation USB from OS X? shows that Bootcamp has the "ability to create install USBs" for Windows.

First of all, connect the adapter and reboot. In many cases, it will solve the problem. You need to reboot because the adapter is not hot-pluggable. For the same reason, if you remove and re-insert the adapter, it won't work until you reboot. If you still have difficulties, I've found driver information while looking at the Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet ...

Ok, this is written for a 500GB HDD. 4 partitions max, just like every other (bootable) hard-drive. I tried this on 2 MacBook Pros and it works perfectly on both. This tutorial also assumes you have OS X Lion installed. What I want to achieve is to have OS X Lion & Windows 7 installed, with a shared space too. 120 (OSX) 260 (SHARED) 120 (Windows) ---...

Here is the page which helped me to enable this option Create a Windows Install USB on OS X Yosemite. Creating a Windows installer from OS X is actually quite simple - Boot Camp Assistant can do it for you. If you’re on a newer machine without an optical drive, you probably have an option that says “Create a Windows 7 or later version install disk”. Click ...

If you are using Bootcamp, Apple has provided documentation of key mappings: print screen = fn + ⇧ shift + F11

There is an alternative method to create a bootable USB of Windows 7 and boot from it Assuming that you have the ISO handy (if you don't, there's Digital River links here), download Unetbootin. Unetbootin allows you to create bootable USB drives from many Linux distributions and also ISO images. (note that Unetbootin requires admin privileges) The ...

No you don't need PC hardware since Yes you can delete OS X entirely after getting the drivers installed from Boot Camp on OS X. Follow the directions for creating the bootcamp USB key that comes with bootcamp (you'll need an 8GB key). When you boot from the bootcamp key and it gives you disk utility just delete the OSX partition (I believe this is an ...

If you find no option to select your external USB drive as an ISO target - are instead directed to install on your repartitioned hard drive immediately - open the info.plist and add your model identifier to the following: <key>ExternalInstallOnlyModels</key> <array> <string>MacBook8,1</string> <string>MacBook9,1&...

I had a similar issue and the below trick solved it. Resetting NVRAM Shut down your Mac. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command (⌘), Option, P, and R. Turn on your Mac. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys immediately after you hear the startup sound. Hold these keys until the computer restarts and you hear the startup ...

Turns out OS X Lion ships with Boot Camp 4.0, the coolest feature of which appears to be the ability to create install USBs.

Can I install Windows 7 on iPad 2? No. Windows requires and runs on x86 architecture processors, while the iPad 2 has an ARM architecture processor. Windows 8 does have an ARM option, and so does Android, so there is a small possibility in the distant future that someone will do the (significant!) work necessary to bring those systems to this hardware. ...

It's possible to install them in multiple partitions and multiboot. But the resulting setup will be a little "rigid". Doing OS X and Windows is easy. Adding Linux to the mix is a little more complicated. I suggest you do not multiboot and only install OS X as the main OS and then use a virtualization solution, like Parallels Desktop or VMware Fusion. With ...

I recommend that you check out rEFIt for your Partition boot manager on Mac. It works great for triple booting a mac, with robust documentation. http://refit.sourceforge.net/doc/ First install refit, then install Windows via BootCamp Assistant in Mac. You will need to partition your Mac drive again and install Linux (settings depend on the distro). It ...

Free memory has nothing in it. Inactive memory caches recently used information just in case the system might use it again. This is especially beneficial for file storage. The system only needs a tiny amount of free memory so the program asks for memory to be allocated it doesn't have to page some other active memory out to disk and cause that program to ...

Actually I asked after some success because I thought it would benefit everyone ;-) Here is the complete process. Some links are missing because I don't have enough reputation to embed them all. Sorry about that. High-level, we "just" need dislocker. But to install it, there are some dependencies to resolve... we need: "Fuse for OS X" Simply download ...
