    How to erase a disk for Mac - Apple Support

    To get to that article, I went to apple.com, selected "Support" and typed in "Format" and the article was the first on the list.

    Thanks Jake, and rather interesting, but using exactly the same method you used I came up with absolutely zero results, in fact not even close that had anything to do with "Format".

    Maybe because I ended up on the Apple Canada site???

    But it was nice to see that they actually provided some nice illustrations in the link you provided. I wish they would do more, especially for the new users who have just started using Macs.

    Actually, with the attitude of most chickens, they don't really give a damn about the size of your egg cup. Their concern is that their egg could be as big as the old biddies eggs on either side of them, but a young hen's eggs will never be as large as the older hens eggs until she ages a bit. And I guess things have to grow and stretch a bit as well to get to that stage.

    Patrick, that is puzzling. I went to apple.com, clicked on "Support" and then in the search box typed "format" and before I could even finish that, the article I linked showed up at the top of the list. I'll try the Canadian site later on today and see if that makes any difference. I cannot think of why that should be, or why Apple would have two different support documents for the same topic in the (relatively) same language.

    I'm being completely neutral here; but I may have an explanation for the differences experienced by Jake & Patrick.

    On the UK site, when I type "format" in the search box and hit return, then I get Patrick's result with over 2000 suggestions that, superficially, have only a tangential relationship to "format".

    But if I type" format" and wait a second, Apple's suggested option is "Format & Partition Disk". Click on that and the top option is exactly what Jake got.

    So you are both right and we still have a happy family

    I agree, and actually i'm quite suprised in the differences.

    This is what I get using your link and method:

    Sure NOT what I would expect for decent search results!!!

    @Patrick,

    If you repeat what you did; when you enter the final "t" of "format", does it not come up underneath the Search box with a suggestion - "Format and Partition Disk"? Clicking on that takes you to a list at the top of which is Jake's article.

    @honestone33
    Actually, it brings up two links:
    Try restricting your search to using the single word "Format" in yoour search box as Jake was suggesting.

    Ian, I can only get the "Format and Partition Disk" suggestion if I click the ? at the Appl I have a probleme site. I get nothing at all suggested if I use the "Support" option and just enter the word "Format". And the results I got from doing that are pretty pathetic as you can see with the screenshot I attached.

    Maybe I might try changing my keyboard and language to US instead of Canada and see if that makes a difference, but I would really doubt it.

    To be perfectly clear, at the apple.com site, don't search the entire Apple site, but first go to Support, then search from there. Here is a screen cap of what I am pointing to: 2019-09-29 06.49.02 pm.pngAnd as soon as I start typing, it looks like this: ssp_temp_capture copy.png

    Sorry, I think I was editing to add the second picture when honestone33 was crafting his post which is why they seem to be repeating. Bottom line, the Support screen yields the link I posted.

    Thanks guys for all your trouble and help, and things seems to be working better here now, probably because and now full of cookies and the search suspects what I might be looking for I think.

    With all the side tracks, did ferrarr actually get an accurate answer to his question???

    Sure a lot of variables to be aware of these days.

    I think we resolved the Mackeeper question with our first response, and I'm not going to read the remaining 3 pages to see if it was related, but closing this down. Any other unrelated discussion can be started in a new thread if need be.
