I am on Office 2018 and would like to uninstall Microsoft Update. Does someone know how to do it?
If it's anything like Office 2016, you should find the Microsoft AutoUpdate app in "/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Microsoft AutoUpdate.app" Just delete the file. There's also a .plist file in "/Users/username/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.autoupdate2.plist" Delete this file as well.

Obsolete? I am only now starting to upgrade into the Mojave. :oops: 😂

I've been perfectly happy with the High Sierra forever but recently bumped into something that demanded 10.14 as minimum. So, on my MBP's I started to migrate to Mojave. I also upgraded our home Mac Mini Server to Mojave too. Seems to work just great in all of them.

My main machine (iMac 27" i7 2011) needs a GPU upgrade before going into Mojave though. So, that one is still running HS, until I get into installing the card.

My wife runs Catalina in her 2012 i7 Mac Mini Server (used as a desktop computer) because she has lots of work software that demands 10.15. No problems with her machine though.

Thank you, that worked for 2018 as well !

well I finally (after under an hour) installed a fresh version of Mojave with CS4
on the MacBook Pro 2012, 525GB and 16 GbRAM.
the trick was to migrate the CS4 via "migration"

Mojave has a great feel, responsive and that screen saver is incredible!
there are more points on why this Sox is my favorite  has produced.
but we all know these.

have fun Mojavians!

You might consider getting a external gpu enclosure and put on a decent gpu with at least 8gb ram and hook it up via thunderbolt/firewire. I have my 2014 macmini running my windows based machine using Radeon RX570 and It can run many games via my Sonnet enclosure. I did had to do a hack I found on youtube for my rig to recognize the external box first vs the internal gpu.

Anyone else having mega trouble signing into iTunes via a passwriod with Mojave?
I used both icloud account and the prompt kept asking for the password
the second one wanted a 2 step verification with my Macbbok air-El Capwhich accepted the password
only to have an empty box asking for the password again.
which is strange because El Capitan works perfect.

Update
the 5th time was a charm, everything works!

The MacBook pro 2012 13" has 2 drives as of 15 minutes ago, MOJAVE and Monterey.
I actually love Monterey and think that is better than Ventura, which has more 2023 features!

Besidea all the cumulative complaints since Mojave (dropping iTunes, dropping 32-bit support, etc), my only minor complaints with Monterey are: I really dislike the default boot wallpaper too bad it can’t be changed; I don’t like that the Books app no longer lets me display the book title and author beneath each book; and prior to Monterey I could copy and paste a photo in Contacts when updating photo, now with Monterey I have to drag and drop or choose a photo that’s already in my Photo Library. It’s a minor thing but for the past decade, I could go to LinkedIn or Twitter and screen capture a photo, crop it in Preview then CTRL+A/CTRL+C and then switch to Contacts and CTRL+V on the photo and it would update. Just got used to that method. Now I have to edit the photo then grab the photo file and drag it to contacts. I don’t do it often so not a show stopper, but still prefer Mojave to Monterey.

I'm on Big Sur after "having " had to abandon Mojave for photography reasons. I'm still using iTunes after installing it, using Retroactive. Not bad after all.
In conjunction with Apple Configurator it works the way I want

I'm still using Mojave on my late 2014 Mac Mini. I haven't run into anything I want to do that it won't let me do, somehow. The only "glitch" so far is a bank website that does not play nice with Safari. I have to use Firefox, and I expect that to work for a long time to come.
Same here. But Apple threw and update 14.1.2 and the problem is no more.

Which browser do you use guys?

I have a Macbook Retina 2017 (M3/8GB/256GB) and I just can't feel a good experience with Catalina and the later OS. I always do a install of High Sierra again which is the one that works flawless for me.
With Mojave the experience is basically the same. And also.. iTunes!

Created a dual boot system on my cMP 5.1 (mid-2012):

1. macOS Mojave 10.14.6 - Bare Metal <- just can't say goodbye to her.
2. macOS Monterey 12.6.3 - Open Core Legacy Patcher 0.6.1 <- sorry gals and guys. 😇

Have a nice and quite Sunday afternoon ya'll. :cool:

Interesting. How is the performance and battery use?
Firefox of course!
I didn't find High Sierra all that good. Actually the Finder felt off. Mojave fixed all that and then some.
Yeah! Firefox is always a good choise. I'm currently using Edge in my Windows machines and works good with Mac OS too but sometimes i miss Firefox and all related to him (Privacy, performance, etc)

How did you do this? Would the Open Core Legacy Patcher interfere with the Mojave install?

I clean installed macOS Monterey following - to each and every word! - the video tutorial by Mr. Macintosh on YouTube on one of my SSDs in my cMP 5,1.

I have no interference with the separate SSD installed macOS Mojave 10.14.6. at all.

See my SSD setup below:

Please be aware! Make sure you have a very tight backup scheme, I have multiple - BOOTABLE - Carbon Cloner Copy backups of macOS Mojave and Monterey on external HDD - Raid1 - enclosures.

Oh, okay, you installed it on a separate drive. I thought you had partitioned your SDD. Separate drives would definitely make it easier.
