    This same folder is where other (what I consider essential) utilities have gone to live in prior versions of macOS. Things like Directory Utility, Network Utility, and Wireless Diagnostics. I just put links to them back into the Utilities folder.

    I didn't do a clean install but the boot is clearly faster than HS.

    I can still get to picture in picture that way. You should try the PiPifier Safari Extension. It works on a lot of websites that don't have native PiP buttons.

    Uh interesting. I had PiPifier before, but the update to Safari marked it as not compatible. Based on your reply I installed it again, and it works! Thanks!

    Apple changes word "Trash" to "Bin" everywhere.. Even in Mail... I just got use to the word "Trash" and they pulled a switch-a-roo.

    Encrypted is always going to be a little bit slower.

    Well... they changed it for all British oriented Englishes... which includes Australian English. If you use macOS in US English... it still reads Trash... thank god!

    It's still Trash here in the UK (which is also a general observation on the state of the country).

    Long press on the maximize window button (green) turns on split screen feature. Is this new, or was I totally ignorant of this in previous versions?

    Just tried it - it is in HS.

    What is the general experience with Mojave compared to HS - is it worth it? Is the privacy settings better?

    OK, thank you. Thank you, too, Vfalcon.

    What can I say, I like it. I think it is a little bit better than High Sierra in terms of performance, and dark mode is also gorgeous. New Finder features are good. New screenshot options are amazing. Stacks are very handy.

    For privacy, yes, Mojave improves even further on privacy.

    Is it worth it? What can I say, If I had multiple Macs on High Sierra which support Mojave officially, I would install Mojave on all of them. For me, it is a no brainer update.

    No, generally, the screenshot programs save the shots in png format. Get some software to help you convert, if you really need the JPEG.

    i think onyx (among others) will let you change file type for screenshots (prob several apps out there to do this)...

    Is there any way to revert translucent HUD to the High Sierra style? It doesn't match to the iOS control HUD which is without changes. It's anoying..

    Sure, using Terminal, issue the following commands of your choice. Lines preceeded by # are comments.
    Code:
    # ScreenCapture image type:
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture type png
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture type jpg
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture type tiff
    
    # ScreenCapture location:
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture location "/Users/henry/Downloads/"
    
    # Disable shadow in screenshots
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture disable-shadow -bool true
    
    After either one:
    killall SystemUIServer

    When you reach the end of the man page in Terminal, you can hear alert sound four times. i think this one is definitely new.

    Interesting how v10.4.1 fixes exactly zero of the interface bugs I'm experiencing and told Apple about.

    By the way, JPG will make screenshots look blurry and not quite as good as PNG.

    I advise screenshotting in PNG unless you absolutely really need a JPG file.

    At any rate, looks like it's been fixed in 10.14.1. Not seeing it anymore either. :)
