    Should I do a clean install with High Sierra

    I have a mid 2012 MacBook pro and I want to do a clean install. I have read that high sierra is best for the older hardware but will it be a security risk? I don't know if its Catalina but my mac is running really slow. Also I want to setup dual boot with linux. Do I partition the hard drive...

    iCloud Keychain not syncing down to Keychain Access

    I recently had my iMac hard drive upgraded (High Sierra, 10.13.6), and afterwards have had a problem with Keychain Access. Despite several attempts to turn off/on keychain and iCloud on my iMac, I can't seem to get Keychain Access (and therefore Safari passwords) to pull my saved iCloud...

    Utilities Folder Hack

    Hello, I previously found a hack that made my Utilities Folder (in the Dock) non-transparent. It didn't show the apps inside - basically it looked as if the folder was empty. I loved it but... Mistakes happen and the folder was accidentally removed from the Dock. When I put it back it was...

    After upgrading the OS, there's a glitch in the Contact app that tech support couldn't fix

    I recently upgraded from Yosemite to High Sierra (and wish that I hadn't ... but that's another story!) The Contacts app changed in a weird way: I have a very large number of Smart Groups. Before the upgrade they behaved exactly the way they should: They had "Contains cards which match the...

    Installing High Sierra on an old HD problems...

    I have Mojave, but I'm trying to install High Sierra on an older HD because I need to see if anything is capable of running older software on my more modern Mac 5.1. However, when I attempt to install High Sierra, it provides no options during installation, and appears to simply want to write...

    Upgrade from Lion 10.7.2 to HS on MBP 8,2

    What is the best way to upgrade from 10.7.2 to 13.6? Would Apple's new Control + Option+ R that updates straight to the highest OS your device can accept work, or would I miss critical firmware updates and such? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Btw the gpu is fine, and I know the mods...

    Bluetooth won't turn off (High Sierra)

    Whenever I put my mac to sleep and then I turn it on again, for some reason the bluetooth is turned on (I turn it off every time before closing the lid) and it won't let me turn it off or pair any device either. The only solution is to restart the computer, which is a pain in the ass. Any...

    Hi-res / Ultrawide monitor app mgt

    Just a technical inquiry about Mojave. I'm considering a new- or refurbished-hardware-purchase in the coming months. Could be a 27-inch iMac i7 or a MacBook Pro 13-inch 17 w/ eGPU. Either setup would include an external monitor. I am concerned about window management when using multiple programs...

    Excuse my ignorance but I’m trying to weed out a multimedia issue I’m having with my Mac Pro and IPhone 7+. Is it normal that loopback is open and active on 4-6 ports at any given time? Even if I turn off WiFi and I open a terminal window and use lsof -i I can see processes open and an...

    cMP 5,1 with PC GPU - Upgrade to 10.13?

    Hi All, Perhaps I can borrow your collective genius. Last year I took the plunge and bought a Mac Pro 5,1 and separately purchased a non-flashed (PC version) GTX 1080. After some jiggery-pokery I got everything running just fine on Sierra 10.12.6. All has worked basically pretty well since...
