Apple's early computers ran on a variety of operating systems, including a Pascal version and one based on CP/M, before releasing its ProDOS with the advent of its 16-bit computer. With the release of the Lisa, which had its own OS, Apple and computing entered the graphical age; it was followed by the Macintosh, which offered a series of "System" operating systems. Other Mac operating systems included PowerPC until Apple acquired NeXT and folded it into the Mac OS. Current operating systems for Apple devices are Mac OS-X and iOS.

Hi, I use my Apple Watch and iPhone to make Voice Memos, however I can't seem to find them anywhere on my Mac. I know they are synced with iCloud, etc... but there doesn't seem to be a Voice Memo app on the Mac?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

I've been toying with the idea of getting an Apple Watch for some time, and the main reason I haven't is because I like to collect and wear more traditional watches (non smart watches), and I don't think it looks right when people wear a luxury watch on one wrist and an Apple watch on the other... but each to their own :-)

Can I ask the people here who use an Apple Watch or another form of Smart Watch, what are the main benefits you find from day to day, over just looking at your phone?

Hi,

I normally use my Macbook Pro to do most of my work, however sometimes I use my iMac for tasks that require a big screen or when reviewing my teams work when they pop into my office.

So in short, my iMac gets very little use other than availing of it's large screen. It certainly doesn't do any heavy lifting.

That being said, everytime I go near it, it is extremely sluggish. My Macbook has less power and ram, etc... and it runs several more heavy applications in comparison to what is running on my iMac. I have checked in the performance monitor and it seems to be that i'm running 3 different browsers (which I need to), however my Macbook has no problem running the same 3 browsers.

iMac
- late 2015
- Retina 5k
- 3.2 Ghz
- 8 GB Ram
- updated regularly

I remember back in my older Windows days, I used to run a small script on Windows that cleared up the memory when my Windows machine felt sluggish.

01 - is there anything similar scripts for Mac?

02 - is it difficult to add more Ram to my iMac

Thanks in advance for your help, it's much appreciated.

MAC OSX and Exchange connectivity problems.
I have a few OSX clients, newest version having mail connectivity issues.  I host my own exchange 2016 server, and none of my windows users are having this issue.
I have mac is hard wired and the other is using wifi, and both are having issues sending or receiving emails.  Looks like the mac mail client has issues connecting.
I can ping my exchange server just fine from the work station and since my PCs are not having this issue, it leads me to believe it's something with the OS client?
The Exchange server and the macs are on the same network.

When trying to send an email, it just sits  in the outbox until it goes out by itself later.
Or there's an error message stating to select a server.
It's random throughout the day.

If anyone has experienced this before and knows what is causing the issue, I would be so appreciative to figure this out.

HI, I'm trying to setup a VPN connection from a Mac to a TP-Link TL-ER620 using NCP Secure Point software.  I had previously flawlessly used PPTP, but the Mac's decided to stop allowing that.

I get a little stuck with the IPSec terms between the two, can someone help me out with a walk through on the client server side of the setup.

Thanks all.

        _ = try? client.list(Empty(), completion: { (notes, result) in
            DispatchQueue.main.async {

Thanks, Shaun

Unable to access Time Machine Backups after migration to internal drive.  We replace the internal drive on a Mac Pro and migrated the user account back to the computer after doing an install of OSX Mojave.  Everything is working fine.  We can go into Time Machine and can browse the backups but cannot restore its grayed out.  We go to the time machine drive and the backups folder and notice the users name is not listed on having rights to any of her user folders.  We try to add her but it will not add her name.  Is there some way via terminal or other to add as having full rights to the backup.  She can only view because the user everyone has read rights.

I can use quick help on this one to restore a file from some time ago,

Amazon Web Services

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

Due to low internet bandwidth availability, we have a user that needs to connect from a home Mac to their Mac here at the office and control that via a VPN connection. I would like to get recommendations on simple Mac-Mac remote desktop control options and understand what others are using.

I have tried using VNC, but when testing internally (using vnc:"IP address") I am receiving an error "unable to resolve". All Mac's are OS-X , El Capitan or higher

Expert assistance would be appreciated

Error code: -19928
Details: ChangeKey is required for this operation.
Error: Could not synchronize record: **mail message**

Resolutions attempted:
-empty individual mailbox caches
-rebuild profile
-reinstall Office

Additional notes:
-Errors also appear when account is connected to an other Outlook for Mac 2016 client on a different computer running the same version of Mac OS.

what is the best way to remote into a mac from another mac with having control and without having to use teamviewer as its block via policy.

I would like to ensure that any folders or files created on a MAC always have full access to both administrators that use the MAC.
It seems that a folder was created however the permission on the folder was only based on the user that was accessing the MAC at that time, that was logged in.
I would like the permissions to show for both Admins - and I would like this automatically configured for any and all files and folders that are created on the MAC.
Is this possible?

Weird phenomenon here ... I'm trying to share an Outlook 2016 calendar from person A with person B's Mac:

- the shared calendar is visible in person B's web mail interface
- it's not visible in person B's Outlook 2016 for Mac interface
- it's not visible in person B's iCal

Even after having clicked on 'accept calendar' and then 'show calendar' in Outlook 2016 for Mac on person B's Mac it simply switches to display the default calendar, the shared calendar doesn't appear ... (except, as indicated above, in the web mail view)

Any ideas!? Thanks!

I have a collection of about 10,000 photos taken in my travels to various countries and they have been set up to be randomly shown as my desktop picture. My problem is that I often don't remember where the photo in use was taken and I'm hoping to find a way or an app that would display that location in a corner of the wallpaper.  The 'Photos' app knows where they were taken so it should be possible. I'm looking for a solution for my desktop, can anyone help me out?

Has anyone experienced slow backups with Time Machine?  Right now, I have 1.11GB to backup and it says 4 hrs (only backed up 60MB).  I am on a GB network and we are backing up to a NAS.  I copied my VM (80GB) to the network (same destination NAS) in about 10 minutes a few days ago so it's not network speed, disk speed, etc.

Using MacBook Pro (late 2011) 2.4GHi7 w 16GB mem 750GB HD partitioned 430GB Mac (42GB avail)/ 231GB Win (31GB avail) Journaled HFS+;
  running High Sierra v10.13.2 w Parallels Desktop 14 for Mac Pro v14.0.1
  Using 2 Airport Time Capsules 4th Gen v7.6.9, 3TB ea formatted AFP (the one being used for backup through Time Machine reports 923GB free through Disk InventoryX app)
  Time Capsules run under Airport Extreme 5th Gen v7.6.9.

Backups through Time Machine > Time Capsule are taking 6+ days (not sure of exact time; I'm having to cancel them).

Ran a few tests (under only MacOS; Windows not booted; Parallels not running); Wi-Fi turned off; Time Capsule connected to MBP via ethernet; running no other apps at time:

Test 1:  dragged 1.0 GB app file from MBP HD to Time Capsule to check write rate  RESULT:  Took over 25 minutes (approx 0.7 MB/s)
Test 2:  ran LAN_Speed Test to Time Capsule with 100MB packet size RESULT:  1.4 Mbps writing to TC, 1.7 Mbps reading from TC

Given the specs on the MBP and TC (1Gps ethernet port) the data transfer rates are excessively slow.

What can I do to fix this?  I can't leave my MBP tethered via ethernet to the Time Capsule for over a week to do a backup (need to take it to work daily).

I had a PCI compliance scan done and it came back with a failure for IIS OPTIONS and they said I needed to set to deny it in IIS. Whenever I do that it causes our phone email stop syncing. We are using Exchange 2010 server at the company and Apple Mail app to sync (please don't just suggest I use something else). I have googled until I'm blue in the face and can't find any relationship between OPTIONS method and Apple Mail. Can anyone please help?

Have been battling this issue for over a year now, here is my setup

i have mac AD users, their macbooks are joined to AD with a software called Centrify, every 90 Days our AD users need to reset their passwords. the Centrify app prompts them to reset their AD password however when they enter their old and new password the Centrify app prompts them that they have not reach their complexity requirements require for their password. Now AD actually takes the password but the user thinks it does not and now the user cannot login to their macbook

the workaround for me is to remove the user from the domain then re-add the macbook

any ideas what this could be.
