    Can I remove an entire "alias" folder?

    There is a folder in Downloads labeled "calibre-2.16.0" In it is a folder labeled Applications, but with the little arrow that indicates it's an alias. It appears to duplicate the actual Applications tab in finder. Can I safely remove this? I have no clue where it came from.

    Reinstalled Mojave 10.14.5 VIA USB caused Apple Pay to stop working

    First of all the actual apple "community" on the apple site is a joke. I am having trouble with Apple Pay after reinstalling Mojave VIA USB. My Mac has a T2 chip so I had to change the security settings to allow usb booting. After that I receive an error message that says "Can't setup Apple...

    Screen Recording with System Audio

    I'm playing video in a Safari window (I could just as easily play it in Firefox if that would help) and trying to do a screen capture with system sound. I tried it with Soundflower but that created a lot of problems, eventually leading to kernel panics. I tried it with the built-in screen...

    Running Catalina on Main Machine

    I was wondering how stable it is to run Catalina on a main machine? I have an updated Time Machine (running Mojave) but, it is not in a HFS format (the backup). Can I install Catalina and have all my current files on there (from Mojave) without an issue?

    Buying a flashed GPU or a discrete stock GPU to flank my 5770 to upgrade my cMP5.1?

    Ok, it's 2019 and I still rock my MP5.1 with its stock ATI 5770 and its 4-cores 3.2GHz. I have not any impelling reason to upgrade to 10.14, but I noticed that when I play via bootcamp my PC games (mostly indies and strategy games, I have an Xbox for the big titles) the performance of my 5770...

They have been extremely helpful, but have not been able, so...
