While using the built in keyboard on my iPad 2 certain keys (such as the "O" key don't respond when I press the button.

My iPad was already doing this while it was running iOS v. 7 and continues to do it after being upgraded to the latest iOS version 9 and continues to do this after I have thoroughly cleaned the screen. I have rebooted the iPad and have shut it down and turned it back on several times.

What else can be done to fix this?

Hi Experts,

My Dad saved around 200 notes directly on his iPhone. Now I got him Exchange.

Is there any quick way that I can transfer those notes either on his Exchange account or on a Windows Hard-drive?

Thank you

User has Filemaker Pro 6 Files that they opened with FileMaker Pro 8 and converted to latest format.  The problem is that these new files now ask for a user name and password, whereas before they only asked for a password for access.

What is the 'trick' for opening these upgraded files?

I have a client with a MacBook that is MIA.  

We believe that it has been wiped and has had Mac OS X reinstalled.

If it has an active internet connection is it possible to find it via serial number or some other way?

I figure it is a lost cause but I am not a Mac expert so I thought that I would through it out there.

Can anyone recommend software that will read/rip a BluRay BD disc to my Mac?
I have a suitable BD Drive, and proved that it works by using "Leawo" free trial, but do not want to buy that particular SW.

(For what it is worth, the Leawo.Net  software did work flawlessly ... but ... <rant warning> the download page said "free", with no sign of a Trial, THEN it became $44.95 with no other info, so I tried the SW then went to Purchase it, the $44.95 is for One Year only (that was not disclosed earlier earlier) and the "Lifetime" version was $99.  To borrow a term from my SEO friends, this was a little too much 'black hat' for me, and I don't want to do business with them, whoever/wherever they are!)

Thanks All

Good afternoon experts,

my question on the surface seems rather innocuous, because simply deleting files on my hard disk is the answer, but that would be to easy.

I have plenty of  free disk space on all of my drives, as seen below:

I am not sure how Apple looks at disk space, so I am hoping someone can enlighten me to what is actually happening.
thanks in advance,

Two Step Authentication is  required by Apple from 17 June - today.
 I have been trying to set it up for 3 weeks now without success.
I accessed instructions on how to set it up and follow them to the letter: Here is what happens:

I go to my PC, open my browser, go to www.icloud.com and log in with my Icloud account, name and password.  
My Icloud  page appears and I click on 'Settings' . Next, I click on 'Manage' Apple Id.'  I am asked again (don't know why)  for my Apple ID and password and also am given  two security questions. I answer these  successfully and am admitted to 'Manage my Apple Id' (a page with headings 'Account', Security', Payment and Shipping', 'Devices'.  
According to instructions  I am   now supposed to 'click on "Generate Password..."', but this option is NOT VISIBLE on my screen. Instead under 'the heading of 'Security' is a message:  'TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION. Add an extra layer of security to your account.Get Started'.
So I  click on 'Get started:  A page  appears titled : 'What is Two-Factor Authentication?  - with 'Continue' at the bottom.. I click on 'Continue'.  This leads to a page which informs  the reader 'How To Turn Two-Step Authentication  On. (Not on how to set it up). '  At the bottom of this page is an 'OK' option. I click on this. When I do I AM SIMPLY RETURNED TO THE EARLIER PAGE   (with Account, Security, payment and Shipping, Devices)  with  the message :'TWO-FACTOR …

I am trying to determine whether it is possible to retrieve for the local machine, an account that was previously cached within Apple Mail

Here is what I think has happened:
- User had an @me.com (Apple) account that was active within Apple Mail
- User placed a load of notes within that account
- The @me.com account was terminated (It was provided by a previous employer) and therefore started causing authentication error messages
- As an attempt to resolve the issue, the user removed the account from Apple Mail
- User realised that they had lost their notes

Is it likely that the notes will be available in a local cache? If so, where might they be found?

Thanks

Currently our MDM policy blocks our corporate-issued iPads
from accessing iTunes (to prevent data leakage/loss).

There's a number of senior staff who wants to use the
iPads to project out via projector for presentations.  However
our MDM (think it's MobileIron) will enable iTunes access if
we enable this projector access via the iPad's lightning port
(which we use an adaptor to connect to the projector : I
 presume it's the projector's HDMI).

How can we allow projector connection & yet block iTunes
access?  

I'm assuming the data leakage/loss will occur when these
staff bring the iPads home to connect their lightning port
to their home laptop's USB (via an adaptor).  

Any IOS apps that's smart enough to detect if it's projector
traffic or iTunes traffic?  or any way to block sync'ing or
communication with iTunes from these iPads?

Looking to help a friend who uses a mac - I only know windows.

He says it's running really slow.  Where would you start to troubleshoot?  

Is there an equivalent task manager to show what's running / what's taking processor power?

How do you tell if the hard drive is full? (is it the same as windows - you don't want the hard drive near full because of temp files /  etc?

How much RAM would you want on a machine these days? What mac would you say is just too old for casual business use these days?  Me, I don't like celerons or any other processors others than i5 or i7 (maybe i3).  Yes, core 2 duos run windows, but sevearl year old windows PCs just crawl with all the patches / updates / etc on a windows machine.  same for a mac?

And for windows, I'd want 8GB+ RAM.  4 would be the lowest I'd deal with.

thoughts?
