    Thanks, but this is only half the information.

    Specifically:
    How much RAM is installed, is it just the original 4 Gigs or was the Mac upgraded to 8 Gigs
    Size of hard drive? The original one is a...

    Hi, and welcome to the forum

    Can you post the specs for the Mac you are using.

    What makes you think someone hacked into the OS?
    On the surface looking at your Activity Monitor window, it looks...

    I saw a video a while back where someone was replacing a very high density surface mount chip it had pins on all four sides with a pin spacing of 0.5mm
    Was fascinating to watch
    They had some...

    Swapping out a 5400 rpm spinner for an SSD would also significantly speed up swapping between RAM and the drive should that be required because there is not enough RAM.
    That would make it less...
  5. I was looking for the same function that Ian...

    I was looking for the same function that Ian described with Safari, ie just close the open windows on Firefox, not close the application.
    I came across this on the net
    How to close multiple firefox...
  6. Yes, I'm not questioning that. I assume if one...

    Yes, I'm not questioning that.
    I assume if one has a few windows open in Safari and additional other windows open as well, then that command will only close all the Safari windows without touching...

    Hmmm....

    For me this is a bit weird.
    I don't use Safari, but...
    Command plus Shift plus W closes just the active window in Firefox, also closes the active window in Apple Mail, but does not do...
  8. I have been using the Mac since forever, it...

    I have been using the Mac since forever, it seems, and there are still items I only discovered recently.
    For instance, I often end up with a dozen or even two open windows, for years I used to close...

    I would use the bootable Mojave USB Flash drive to do a clean install on the Macs rather than upgrade from ElCapitan where they are all now.
    Might get rid of some extraneous stuff that is still...
  10. Are you saying one could have just copied the...

    Are you saying one could have just copied the install file to a macOS formatted USB flash drive and used that install the OS on all the Macs in the family?
    I was under the impression that doesn't...
  11. True enough. Are "Recent Items>Applications"...

    True enough.
    Are "Recent Items>Applications" still there in Mojave? Or did Apple remove that in favour of showing them in the dock?
    And is there a limited number of these icons that show in the...
  12. Is that functionally any different than "Recent...

    Is that functionally any different than "Recent Items" under the  that list the last 15 applications one used?
  13. I do it because when I do upgrade the macOS, I...

    I do it because when I do upgrade the macOS, I have six Macs in the immediate family to upgrade.
    Saves me downloading the same file six times from the Apple store.

    This article also mentions that one might run into network problems with stealth mode activated. I have read this before.

    But I have had stealth mode activated for as long as I can remember -...

    Well, I just wasted a good half hour of my time!

    Stealth mode basically makes your Mac "invisible" to the internet if someone is just scanning IP addresses and looking for open ports on your computer to access it.
    It came to mind when you...

    Thanks,
    I had looked at the first one already - it only lists the C920, not the C920S
    But the second link you posted lists the C920S and I think that one hit the sweet spot for me.

    So, unless I...
  18. Need a webcam for a MacMini - Recommendations?

    There doesn't seem to be a category for Mac compatible hardware not manufactured by Apple.
    Maybe I missed it - if so could the mods move the thread.

    I'm using a MacMini with a Dell 24-inch...

    I see at least three apps to make a USB installer:
    DiskMaker X
    Disk Creator
    Disk Drill
    plus of course the Apple recommended method using Terminal

    They all seem to approach creating an...

    You're beating a dead horse!

    There is no native Mac software, either as part of a macOS installation or third-party Mac software that will burn that format.
    I see discussion about that on line...

    Very good point!
    When I upgraded the RAM on my last Mini, I had to push so hard to get it to seat properly that I thought I was going to break something.

    How did you test the RAM?

    Did this RAM ever work in this iMac?

    Years ago there was the odd RAM that was not compatible with the Mac even though on the surface it met the basic required specs...
  23. If the drive from the problem iMac boots up fine...

    If the drive from the problem iMac boots up fine when connected to your working iMac via USB, I would think both the drive and the OS on it are OK and not related to the problem.

    I don't have an...

    Since you can successfully boot using the drive from the problem iMac with your working iMac via USB, I doubt reinstalling Snow Leopard will help.
    My guess is that the problem is related to the...
