    Need to Update: How to keep your Mac running its best for years on end
    I just read the thread in the subject line.

    Very useful, but I think it should be updated as far as Gatekeeper is concerned.

    Apparently the newer macOS no longer offer the option to download software from "anywhere" as one of the basic options.
    So it would be good if one of the admins can add how to get that option and also update and/or add any new maintenance suggestions.

    We have threads that probably go back 15 years or more...would be one heck of a job updating old out-dated threads!

    The best way to update old threads...post a reply in the thread itself with the updated info. Then everything is in one place (older info & newer updated info).

    I mentioned the need to update because the post/thread is a "sticky"
    And the thread is locked so I could not update it myself.

    Forgot to mention those two points - sorry.

    Ahh...that makes a BIG difference! Yes if it's a sticky thread & locked...that makes it hard to update!

    It's unlocked now krs. Since you did some research...feel free to update that thread...and then we'll lock it again.

    Thanks,

    That clears up a few things. I was a little confused about what happened there.

    That explains why you didn’t reply to the thread to begin with.
