    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.
  17. Another factor, Patrick, is that if the readings...

    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...

    From that description, it doesn't sound like it's swelling. A swelling battery will make a dome shape (very slight) on both the top and bottom case as the battery presses on the case and it gives a...
  19. What "reinstall utility" are you talking about?...

    What "reinstall utility" are you talking about? Did you mean the OS installer? The recovery partition? It does help to use terms carefully as we cannot see your system and can only react to the words...

    No way to check for swelling batteries with a meter, but if you have a straightedge, or ruler, put it across the portable from side to side just above the trackpad and below the keys. It should touch...

    If it's been a while since he travelled there, he may find this interesting to read to refresh:

    We’re Here! (Or maybe not quite yet—Arrival processes ahead.) – England For All Reasons

    And maybe...

    Lisa, if that shop doesn't work out, there is a chain called Carphone Warehouse that has all kinds of cellular support. The have an online presence at Compare Our Best Mobile Phone Deals '|' Carphone...

    As for the SSD speeds, the biggest thing you will see is boot time and launch time for applications. Once running, the SSD will help when opening/closing files.

    If the tech can upgrade the...

    When I go to UK I get an EE SIM card. Actually, I just kept it as I travel there just about annually and it's nice to have the same UK phone number. But in any event, if he's going into Heathrow,...

    How do you know that? Some of the displays of available storage are not accurate and not updated very often. (And it is "storage" not "memory" that I think you are talking about.)
