    Nope, it's the one in my specs. Which is why I asked about it being model-specific.

    Curious, I am on 10.14.5, my bootrom version is 192.0.0.0. Wonder if it's model-specific?

    To clarify what rachalmers said, you right click on a file, then "Get Information" and then "Open with" and dow hat he said about selecting VLC. And one more step after you do that. Click on Change...

    The system does not run the fan, so any slowness is not attributed to that. I would suggest you turn it off, completely powered off, unplug it and leave it in a dry place to dry out. If you are...

    Have you talked to your internet provider to see if there is anything wrong on their end? Your symptoms are more of a provider issue than something in your local network.

    The message says and that implies that the remote, rather than your server, will be the controlling factor in when it will stop working. I am not familiar with MacPorts or what it does, or Chrome...

    Think about it, Patrick. When the developer updates the application to take advantage of some feature, or react to some change, in a newer version of the OS, if that application has to work with...

    Look for a "no dying" game. Something with problem solving, but you don't die if you can't solve it. Lots of them out there. Apple recently recognized "The Gardens Between" as a really unique one. I...

    That is correct. That is how Preview does editing. The edits, when saved, become a permanent part of the new image. What you might think about doing is to rename the image at the time you OPEN the...

    I don't think the SSD failed. When SSDs fail, they usually fail catastrophically and permanently. From your description, it seems something in the conversion to APFS on the SSD got mucked up, leading...

    Hughvane, what are you using to do these edits? What may well be happening is that the edits are being permanently saved with the original screenshot as a fixed part of the image rather than as an...

    Patrick, I think the locked/unlocked is getting confusing. The lock icon on Get Info certainly does re-lock when you close Get Info, but the settings changes made when unlocked should remain in...

    Are you allowing Finder time to make all the changes? Are you also clicking on the little gear icon and selection "Apply to enclosed items?" Depending on how man items need to be checked/changed,...

    I'll take your thoughts in the same order:

    1. The USB itself may be fine, but something in your system is not the same as those other machines and is causing the installation to fail. Until/unless...
  15. I still don't think the SSD you have has failed....

    I still don't think the SSD you have has failed. SSDs don't work sometimes and then not sometimes. It works or doesn't. In your case, it works. The installer fails. That's most likely a problem with...

    Well, Keith, technically you DID partition the drive, just that the partition is ONE partition and in that partition you installed the operating system. You may not have known you did that, as the...

    Well done, Keith. I wouldn't bother partitioning the SSD, no need to do that.

    Just thought I would report back. iMazing didn't have an easy way to get a count, so I downloaded ALL of the images from iCloud as a backup (took 9 downloads because you are only allowed 1000 images...

    That is "dangerous" to do. A lot of those games put things on your system through that Facebook interface that could be malicious. Not fatal, but just nasty. And most of those nasties would affect...

    Well, I am running out of ideas. Nothing should trigger Safari to start except having it in the boot sequence. One last thing to check might be to start a shutdown with the  icon upper left, then...

    Just to be sure, how did you shut down Safari? And is it possible that her machine is rebooting? And if rebooting is a possibility, does she have Safari set to launch on boot?

    Technically, if you...

    Well, I notice mine wakes up to receive emails and notifications, probably because I leave Mail running when it rests and I have "Wake on network access" ticked, so any email will wake it up...

    Sue, I just tried turning Photostream off and on on all devices and nothing changed. Also did a full backup of the iPhone using iTunes and no change. What is curious is that the storage bar on the...

    Let's say you visit a site that has a self-starting video (lots of them have that these days). Abcnews.go.com is an example. As soon as you open the page video starts running. (You can see which...
