    One more hint for him, Lisa. If he plans to return to UK any time soon (next year or so), he can reuse the same SIM card as he gets this time if he can, as the Brits say, "top it off." To do that, he...

    Verizon is $10/day with very limited data when roaming in UK. He does NOT want to do that unless he absolutely needs the same number. SIM card will be less than $25 for a ton of data and minutes. He...

    Calendar can handle it. When you enter an event, in the date/time setting dialog there is a box for the time zone. If you click on the time zone it shows, a drop down menu appears with a few options...

    Ah, but there's naught better than waking up from a nap to the applause for a well-struck six, have a sip of shandy and back to the nap!

    With AM running, what does the Disk tab show? Are there a lot of reads/writes going on? That can also slow down the machine.

    That's perfectly clear to me, Sue. But then, I've actually played cricket, admittedly only once, but nevertheless I scored two runs, not out for a duck. Not bad for a colonist!

    What I have seen is that any event, at least in Calendar, that you have set for a time in a different time zone shows in the current time zone as the time in the current zone. Then, when you are in...

    Nice rant, artmaker. Let me make a couple of suggestions to reduce your blood pressure.

    1. By "contact" Apple, as Patrick suggested, never call them. Use the website at apple.com, click on...

    Login as domain user, check the DNS settings at System Preferences/Networking/<<interface>> to see if the DNS is properly set up. Not loading websites normally points to a DNS issue.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Can you launch Activity Monitor and see what is going on? If you can get AM running, look at the CPU stats and click on the header of the column "% CPU" until the big hitters...

    As Ashwin says, the difference is that the apps and processes create a BOOTABLE usb drive, so that if/when the internal drive dies, you replace the drive, boot from the USB drive and run the...

    And I think the number of items on the recent part of the Dock is small, like 2-3.

    Yes, it's one maneuver to get to the icon and one click to launch. The  approach means four steps. 1) Click the  2) Move to Recents 3) Move to app 4) click.

    I'm basically lazy. I prefer two...

    You might try opening a chat with an Apple tech support rep. Just head for Apple.com, click on Support on the top menu bar and follow along to where you can elect to chat.

    I find the "recents on the Dock" useful as I find that depending on what I am doing I tend to use and reuse an app so having it on the Dock temporarily is handy. When I don't use that app for a...

    Ah, well, they don't do that, Patrick. The app starts and gets to an initial screen that asks, I think, what you want to do. At that point you can exit and quit the program and the installer is left...

    Not quite that simple, Patrick, because the application starts up at the end of the download. So you have to cancel out of the application after it starts up without authorizing it to install....

    I have it on a bootable USB so that if my SSD dies and I have to get a replacement, I don't have to go through the whole Internet recovery process and can just. boot from the USB and install and get...

    I have provided the login/password for my MBP to both of my daughters and advised them that on the Desktop is a Word file called "I am dead You need this." My wife has it, too, so I think we are...

    "Beyond Night Shift" is hard to fathom--if you slide the controller to full warmth, the screen becomes positively RED. Redder than is comfortable to use, frankly.

    But, as you say, they wanted that...

    No need for all that. In Mojave, open System Preferences/Displays and look at Night Shift. Set it for whatever you want.

    Another factor, Patrick, is that if the readings of the drive free space were taken immediately after install and before a reboot, the swap/cache space could well be that large. So looking for...
