Today's Quick Tip is a…well…it's a tip-a-palooza! We're going to go over some fun and helpful things you can do with the Dock, including adjusting its size (without opening System Preferences at all), seeing what song is playing in iTunes, adding blank spacers between your apps, and lots more.
If you've seen any of the nefarious Safari pop-ups that have been going around lately, you know how frightening they can be, especially for users who don't know how to stop programs from resuming where they left off the last time they were closed. It's pretty scary to think your Mac has been hijacked! In today's Quick Tip, we'll cover how to force those sinister pop-ups to go away under both OS X and iOS.
In today's Quick Tip, we'll talk about how OS X El Capitan is scanning your email for potential contact data and adding what it finds to your Contacts program. If you're like Melissa Holt and don't like it doing so, we'll tell you how to turn it off!
For today's Quick Tip, we'll cover not just how to clean duplicated cards out of your Contacts program, but how to eliminate accounts you don't need from the app, as well. Doing so can prevent all sorts of trouble, including missing data on your other devices. Come on in, read this tip, and clean up your contacts!
Apple updated OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan on Wednesday. The update includes fixes for problems with Mail and Audio Unit plug-ins, a bug fix for JPEG preview images, improved support for Microsoft Office 2016, and more. The crown jewel of the update is probably the 150 emoji characters added, because...EMOJI!
Today's Quick Tip is on an awesome new feature of El Capitan's revised Notes app: the ability to append shared info to existing notes rather than creating new ones. So you can start, say, a note about all of the places you want to visit and just add to it as you find new locations. Helping you stay informed and organized is what this article's all about!
Apple released Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 6.1.7 Tuesday. The update adds support for five new cameras from DxO, Panasonic, and Pentax.
If you've got a backup drive (and you should), have you ever given any thought to what might happen if someone stole it? Is the data accessible to a thief? In today's Quick Tip, we'll cover how to encrypt a new Time Machine backup and some caveats for encrypting existing ones (you may have to erase the disk first!).
In this article, we're going to cover an interesting feature of the new version of OS X: Hiding and showing the menu bar. For those of you who like to hide the Dock when you're not using it, this'll reduce your visual clutter even more. All the focus'll be on your work windows after today's Quick Tip!
Don't install El Capitan until you read the 2015 rendition of Dr. Mac's warning for upgraders... Only in Dr. Mac's Rants & Raves #144.
