We've got some security tricks for you here, all about what you can do if you accidentally leave your Gmail or iCloud account logged in on a computer that you don't trust. There's nothing worse than thinking that friend of yours (you know the one!) is gonna do some stupid stuff to mess with you while he has access to your email account. Preventing mischief is the subject of today's Quick Tip.
Today's Quick Tip is all about sorting your Mail on your Mac. Need to find the largest message by size? No problem. Want to sort your sent messages by recipient instead of by date? Easy-peasy.

We'll show you how to enable and make use of this new mode.
Confused as to why your "About This Mac" window lists a whole bunch of "Other" space being eaten up? In today's Quick Tip, we'll talk about what those files are and suggest a quick way to analyze them in detail (hint: you've probably got nothing to worry about).
If you launch an app you got from the Mac App Store and are greeted with an error dialog that says, "An unexpected error occurred while signing in. Your device or computer could not be verified. Contact support for assistance," you need to apply Apple's Ethernet-related fix regardless of whether or not you intend upon using Ethernet on your Mac.
