    M1 MBA working with only 5W of power

    Hi there, I know I could easily plug my 30W adapter into my Mac and stop writing this thread, but I've recently changed my setup a little, and I've had trouble routing the 2m long power cable in a way that looks nice. That's when I decided to try using a shorter 0.5m usb-a to usb-c cable to...

    Hi all, I want to be able to easily swap out my personal Mac mini from my work MacBook. These two computers will share a monitor, meeting webcam, mouse, and keyboard.

Upon doing so, when I log into the MBP (2019, 32GB / 512GB storage - Monterey with all the updates), the WIFI or LAN if am docked, is not connected to the internet...

    MacBook Pro 2019, 32GB and Dock

    Just got access to a MacBook Pro 2019, with 32GB memory. At work, I use a CalDigit (I believe that is how it is spelt) dock. Curious, would a Dell dock work, too? I have one at home, I guess I could just bloody test it. LOL - rather nervous to connect it, in case it damaged it somehow.

    Recommended affordable docks/hubs for Macbook Pro w/M1 Max?

    I'm expecting my new macbook next week but I'm having a hard time picking out a dock. My needs are pretty simple: connect two external monitors with HDMI (or with an adapter I have, 1 HDMI & 1 Display Port) and ideally get some extra USB-A/USB-C ports, but I'm on a budget. I realize the...

    Hi, Any idea how to rearrange open apps in uBar? Maybe I am missing something, but they can't be moved left or right? Example: I want my browsers to be next to eachother, but I can't move the applications. They are in order they were launched.

    Making a Dock stack for Office?

    Over the weekend, I clean-installed a MacOS for the first time in at least 15 years. My late-2013 iMac is now running Mojave. That's great, but only the beginning. I also clean-installed Microsoft Office 365, which was also giving me problems. Mojave installed, Office installed. Great! Now...

    Is there a way to show all open Chrome windows like on Windows OS?

    I know that I can hit Control + down/up arrow to see the different open windows/apps. This is inconvenient when using a mouse. Is there a way to see ALL open Chrome windows at once like on the Start bar/menu in Windows? I like how all open windows can be quickly seen like this...

    Development History of Mac OS X

    I am researching the early development period of Mac OS X right at the beginning. There seems to have taken place a discussion amongst the developers about the Mac OS Y dock. A philosophical question whether "NeXT" engineers had it "right" with the dock. Some Macintosh purists seemed to be...
