Have you ever wondered how you could get your Safari bookmarks into Firefox and Chrome (or vice versa)? Well, that's the subject of today's Quick Tip, so wonder no more! Or wonder no more after you come in and read the article, anyway.
Apple released Safari 7.0.6 for OS X Mavericks and Safari 6.1.6 for OS X Lion and Mountain Lion on Wednesday to patch several WebKit-related security and memory corruption issues that could let attackers run arbitrary code on victim's computers. The security issue could also cause app crashes.
For today's article, Melissa Holt will be discussing how to manipulate layered objects in Pages, so if you'd like to change whether one item is behind or in front of another, she'll tell you how. This method is an easy way to move objects to the background or create interesting, multilevel graphics. (Note: Melissa reports that no interesting graphics actually appear in this article, so don't get your hopes up.)
For today's article, Melissa Holt is going to cover one of the most powerful security tools on your Mac—FileVault. She'll discuss why you need it, how you'll turn it on, and a really easy way you could lose access to all of the files on your computer. (Don't do that last thing, OK?)
For today’s Quick Tip, we’re going to cover a little-known feature of OS X Recovery—repairing your Home folder permissions. If your Documents folder won’t let you edit files or an application is telling you that you don’t have permission to save something to your Desktop, then this tip should be right up your alley.
There’s a secret to fixing red-eye on images within iPhoto—and it leaves a certain frustrating pupil-size slider in the dust. In this Quick Tip, we’ll go over how to use this fast little repair tool.
For today’s Quick Tip, Melissa Holt is going to teach us how to move a job that we’ve sent to the wrong printer to a different one. No more walking through the steps to reprint a document just because the printer you tried to use is at home, folks!
In today’s Quick Tip, Melissa Holt’s going to cover a feature that not many people use, despite it having been around since approximately the dawn of time. OS X’s Color Picker can grab any color on your screen, so you can apply the exact shade of a logo, a t-shirt you took a picture of, or pretty much anything else to your objects and text. Handy!
Apple updated the built-in security safeguards in OS X to block versions of Flash prior to 188.8.131.52 from running following the discovery of a flaw in the multimedia platform that could let attackers steal login credentials for thousands of websites. Adobe released an update for Flash on Mac, Windows, and Linux earlier this week to address the issue, too.
In this Quick Tip, we’re going to create a keyboard shortcut to clear Safari’s browsing history on your Mac, quick as a wink. We understand that sometimes you look at sites that you don’t want other people to know about, and hey, we won’t judge you. Well, we won’t judge you much, anyhow.
