    Thanks for the reply and the advice - we'll surely follow that route.

  3. iPad mini in death throes?

    My wife's elderly iPad mini (MD529BA - 9.3.5) is failing to charge - it gets to about 15% and that's it. Are there are any fixes or are we, like Private Frazer, simply DOOMED?

    Further to my original post, I've just spotted a folder on the HD that was created at about the time when things started to go wrong.

    Thanks for your note.

    However, I'd appreciate some additional help.

  9. OS cannot be installed (?)

    Had a fright this evening with my MPB 10.13.6

    This morning there was an update for Safari, which I duly installed. Safari is now telling me that it's on 12.0.3. I presume this is the latest...

    I have an MBP (MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) with 10.13.6. I've noticed recently that when I return to the Mac after half an hour or so, it takes longer than it used to to wake up....

    Thanks for the help.
    In fact, I always use the Magic Mouse and rarely the trackpad.
    But I've taken IWT's tip and removed a couple of ticks from 'More Gestures'.
    Will report back in due course.

    Yes, it's the usual background image that I get when I've shut the applications.

    The important stuff is on the MPB and/or Google Drive so that will be accessible I hope.

  20. Keystroke short cut for Reader View?

    When reading a newspaper on line with my MBP (10.13.6) I am distracted by adverts and so select "Reader View" when possible.
    Is there a keystroke short cut to select Reader View?
    Thanks in advance....

    I just wondered about the possible update on the basis that the iPad is so old.
