You’ve sent someone an email, and now you want to pass it along to another person. But when you choose to forward it, you’ve got a bunch of header gobbledygook, quoted text, and all that jazz to strip out (especially if you don’t want your new recipient to see who else you sent it to). Luckily, Mail offers a way to re-send messages without including any of that formatting, and it’s really handy. In this Quick Tip, we’ll let you know how.
In today's Quick Tip, we'll cover how to use a three-finger tap to both look up words and then launch the Dictionary program. We'll also discuss how to edit what shows up when you use that gesture (hint: you can remove Wikipedia from the list if you want to see just the definition instead). Melissa Holt is on the case, folks.
Apple has posted a KnowledgeBase article with a workaround for persistent problems in Mail.app in Mavericks. Apple released a Mail update in November and fixed other problems with the release of OS X 10.9.1, but according to the KBase article, users are still having problems downloading new email from "some email providers."
Did you know that all of the user accounts on your Mac can listen to the same iTunes music without you having to move files around, change the location of your libraries, or do anything else complicated? In this article, we'll tell you how to take advantage of this handy-dandy feature and what caveats you should be aware of before you do.
Hate the "All My Files" feature? We're here to help. In this Quick Tip, we'll cover how to disable it, so you'll no longer have to deal with finding your stuff within its odd interface. And we'll also show you how to remove its icon from Finder's sidebar, so if you really, REALLY don't want to see it again, you don't have to.
Melissa Holt doesn't like long printer names with lots of unhelpful random numbers and letters, so she always changes those to be more descriptive. Melissa Holt pities the fool who leaves his devices with their default names. Melissa Holt apparently lapses into Mr. T–speak when she writes about herself in the third person. She promises she won't do that throughout this article.
One of the more significant changes to iTunes 11 is how one searches an iTunes library. In the latest version, typing a search query reveals a truncated list of results below the search field from which to choose. However, many preferred the way it worked previously, filtering all items in the selected media category. Thankfully there's still a way to do this, and Michael Johnston shows you how.
So you’re looking through Mail for messages from a certain person or about a subject, and you’re not finding anything, even when you’re searching for stuff you know is there. Well, that’s frustrating, isn’t it? In this tip, we’ll give you some suggestions for how to force that naughty Mail program to behave.
Under Mavericks, we can now search by attachment type in Mail—and it's handy as all get-out. In this Quick Tip, Melissa Holt will tell us several different ways to use this trick to find emailed PDFs, Numbers spreadsheets, Word documents, and pretty much any other kinds of files you can think of.
Concerned parents who'd like to control what their children see online have a great option in OpenDNS. Offering both free and paid services to block potentially problematic sites, the service is reliable and incredibly easy to set up (and it works better than the Mac's built-in parental controls, too). In this Quick Tip, we'll cover how it works and how to configure it.
