    Rather than reinstalling Mojave from scratch, it's better to try applying the most recent Combo Update. That can often iron out buggy behavior, especially if instigated by a previous update. You can...

    I agree with this. For better or worse, Catalina is a portent of the future of macOS. Since you are just getting back into things, you may as well be prepared for it. I would recommend doing a clean...

    I had issues getting my iDevices to show up wirelessly early on with Catalina despite having the wireless sync option enabled. The solution was to reboot both the Mac and the iDevices.
