    No, but a Mod will come along sometime and fix it. I second the suggestion to install Lion, then upgrade from there to what you want. Get Lion on it first, we can sort out the Mojave installer later....

    Are the files for the books on the Mac? Also, if you open the Books app, do any books show? If you bought books from Apple, they should show, even if they are not actually ON your Mac. They will show...

    I don't use Chrome, but somewhere in the Chrome preferences you can set the homepage. I think the best way is to first get to where you want it to open then enter Preferences and most browsers will...

    @pettycash, I'm sorry but that last post was a bit confusing to me. I don't know what "book tab of my MBP" means. The way to move books is to connect your iPad to the MBP either with a cable or...

    Just to be clear, you opened the Books app on the MBP and there were no books there? That means you have no books on the Mac. And the sync then synced that "no books" to the iPad. Were the books ever...

    Could be their end. Hard to say. As I said, it's a big file to download. Let it run, go get a coffee at that coffee shop and relax!

    @pettycash, how did you try to sync books? Given that iTunes has been divided into three separate apps, Books, Music, TV, the process is completely different. Books are synced through Finder. Your...

    It is a big download. About 8GB. If you are in the install, that will get adjusted downward as the installation proceeds. I seem to recall it taking just under a hour on my MBP in my profile.

    I did eventually find what was there at the end of a long chain of links, and all of it is to reduce vulnerabilities of various sorts.

    @Ratsma, thanks for that link. Great article on how TM works and great for him to give a shout out to the late Jame Pond, of Pondini fame. Learned a lot from James Pond when I first got into the...

    Welcome to the forum. No reason to double post the same problem, I'm sure a Moderator will come along and address it.

    Time Machine does not make a "normal" drive that can be accessed by Finder. It...

    Have you tried any of these? How to reinstall macOS from macOS Recovery - Apple Support I don't know if they will work with your old and now useless iMac but you can always try. The big mistake you...

    watchOS update available

    My  watch had an update yesterday. It's now watchOS 6.1.1. I don't know what's in it, Apple says security updates.

    Probably. There is a new app for podcasts and the older iTunes does not know about that so it doesn't see what's on the iPad. If you updated to Catalina, where iTunes is gone, replaced by Music, TV,...

    Would be tough to have a discussion of breeding canines on this site with that restriction, Patrick. Good thing that doesn't come up that often!

    Patrick, methinks it's seeing b-i-t-c-h in the middle of the name. That's what it's blocking with asterisks. Sometimes used as a derogative term for a woman (or even a man, sometimes).

    Sue, I have never understood the reluctance to use a proper email application. Even Mail, as it is, is better than using webmail. I occasionally have to revert to webmail if I am away from any of my...

    I know there are those who find Catalina problematic, but for me it has been rock solid. My two 32 bit apps were updated to 64 bit, the installation and updates have been easy and the integration...

    Yep, my backups have always been encrypted just so that it would include my passwords for me. That is probably the most important part of my backup!

    A good app to find "hidden" 32 bit stuff is Go64. It opens apps and looks at what's in them to see if any component is 32 bit. Just re-ran it on my Catalina system (10.15.2) and it found some debris...

    Well, technically it cannot have been there as "there" was inside iTunes, and iTunes is no more. I'm not sure how that column view would work in TV anyway (What columns would be of value?).

    I read that. Interesting read. My Macs are all pretty "vanilla," in that I stay inside my own folder, don't add a lot of system extensions, and just use the system as it comes. And my upgrade to...

    I upgraded a while ago and then updated today. Catalina works well for me, and works well with my iPhone and iPad. My Photos synchronizes through iCloud well, in fact it seem somewhat faster than I...

    Pete, there are a lot of terms you have used somewhat inexpertly. Chrome is not an OS, nor is Safari. They are both browsers, used to browse the Internet. Yahoo is a site in the internet that offers...
