    I'm not sure what you did here. It looks like you have 2 partitions on your SSD. Was that your intent? What version of macOS are you on? Can you post a screen cap of what Disk Utility is showing?

    This whole matter is confusing. The OP implies he's texting with AOL (i.e. AIM), but that part of the service was shut down.
    AOL Instant Messenger is shutting down after 20 years – TechCrunch

    We...

    See my response to chscag. But that doesn’t apply to AOL Instant Messenger. We’d need to know more about what exact software you are using. Preferably with links to it so we can take a look at the...

    I don’t believe SMS allows for notifications that a message was read. iMessages do, but not SMS. But to get SMS messages to sync with a Mac, there are a couple settings that have to be set. On your...

    Verizon bought AOL in 2015. In 2017, they then bought Yahoo and subsequently merged AOL and Yahoo together into a new company named Oath. They are losing money on this big time. I wouldn’t be...

    You linked to their entire list of hubs, so I don't know which one you are talking about. Looking over one in particular, it does appear from the product photos that charging a MacBook through this...

    That would be the easiest thing to do. An external SSD on USB-C is just as responsive as an internal SSD. I trust your Mac does have a Thunderbolt/USB-C port?

    Before you do this, you really should...

    I used to be an advocate for a few games so i got Crossover for free, but ditched it long ago for Wineskin. I have no doubt they intend to go subscription... it’s what all the cool kids are doing...

    It’s PC Magazine. I stopped taking them seriously ages ago, when I was a Windows enthusiast. They blatantly cater to their advertisers.
  10. Don’t blame Apple. They’ve long been firing...

    Don’t blame Apple. They’ve long been firing warning shots about dropping 32-bit compatibility for over 2 years now. The communities for DOSBox and Wineskin/Crossover have been warning people all this...

    So apparently Startpage has been acquired by or entered into some arrangement with a group that specializes in targeted advertising. As a consequence, privacy-minded watchdogs no longer recommend...
  12. AdGuard for Mac is half-off for a lifetime license

    I decided to give AdGuard for Mac another whirl since AdGuard for Safari has been very problematic for me ever since they had to develop a new version for Safari 13 compatibility. The "for Mac"...

    Check to see what applications are loading on startup by going to System Preferences » Users & Groups. Select your user account, then the Login Items tab. This may not be a complete list of...

    You could make this habit of yours a whole lot easier and more foolproof using Cookie, an app that manages cookies, browser cache, and more. You can set it to automatically toss cookies, cache,...

    As per my prior post, well we’ll just have to agree to disagree on this.
  16. The indicator for the battery charge is accurate,...

    The indicator for the battery charge is accurate, but in my experience, the health indicator is grossly inaccurate. In the most extreme example, my mother-in-law’s iPhone was draining from 100%...
  17. Your profile shows you have an iPhone 7. If so,...

    Your profile shows you have an iPhone 7. If so, you may need a new battery. That’s pretty old now. There’s a free app called Coconut Battery that you can install on your Mac that can tell you what...

    I’ve long used StartPage and it generally does a good job. I’ve more recently started using DuckDuckGo and it has gotten pretty good. Last I had tried it a few years ago, it wasn’t so good. The main...

    I use 1Password and iCloud for syncing also. I used to use Dropbox, but was disturbed a few years ago when they changed their tune from "our employees cannot access your data" to "our employees are...
  20. I wouldn't credit it to being "late to...

    I wouldn't credit it to being "late to technology". As we see time and time again in these forums, being raised with computers doesn't make one "computer-literate". I guarantee you that when today's...

    My mother-in-law just got conned by these people yesterday. They claimed her Mac was hacked and walked her through to the security settings where the firewall was turned off (of course it was.... it...

    I did a trial of that since among the extra things it's supposed to be able to do is block "mailing list" popups, which are the scourge of the internet if you ask me. Unfortunately in the sites I...

    I don't use Pages a lot, but it's more than sufficient for my needs. As for Safari, I still use it primarily, but I utterly loathe the changes they made to how it handles extensions. All extensions...

    Alrighty, so I need to correct myself since this was largely incorrect. Normally, the Keychain password is the same password as your login password. But!... if you change your login password, the...

    Ooooh... nice find! It works better for myself also than the Automator workflow I've used in the past. Rather than using Keyboard Maestro to assign a keyboard shortcut, you can do this natively in...
