    There is another alternative which i used initially for some time but it does have it's inherent risks. Well, only one risk really, and that is forgetting the "master" password but perhaps you would...

    I'm with you on the keyboard like, that's one of the reasons why I upgraded in 2017 to a brand new 2015 MBPr. With 8Gb RAM and a fairly fast CPU it is running Catalina no problem and still retains...

    I resosted the idea of having a password manager for a long time doing what you suggest you have been doing, having a document (MS Word .doc) with a list of passwords but as the list grew and i...

    That's just doesn't seem to be a "one size fits all" browser or search engine out there yet. I have always had at least 3 browsers and swap search engines as required if I don't get all the results...

    Gee, I didn't know it was glued on. I should check the iFixit site just for reference. Not that I would ever attempt it myself:Oops:

    I think Apple may simply view it from the point of view that if they replaced the battery only (although I'm sure it's possible) they may run into keyboard or trackpad issues after return to the...

    I sure will. Bit early for Christmas wishes yet I suppose. Yes I'm a bit disappointed with the battery, Annies is kept in an air-conditioned room so humidity shouldn't be a problem. Usually...

    I had to have a faulty battery replaced on a 2year old MBP 12" 2015 model and Apple told me that replacement of the keyboard and trackpad was a necessity but since it was done under warranty I didn't...

    Just out of curiosity, did everyone else loose the Acrobat reader app on upgrade to Catalina?

    In the past I found it very handy living as we do in Indonesia for signing legal documents. other than that it doesn't get that much use on the MBP but I ran into an unexpected complication with the...

    I should add you can also download the Acrobat Pro version on the same page and continue to use it to read PDF's even after the free trial has expired.
  18. Adobe Acrobat Reader DC still works in macOS 15

    I was erroneously under the impression that Acrobat was gone to stay, at least the free PDF reader version. When I upgraded to Catalina it was just gone. Subsequent reading online seemed to confirm...

    Lori, think about changes you have made that you do like in Settings. Scroll through the Settings app as a reminder and then think about having to redo them all. Things like Siri Voice Recognition,...
