users reported that they cannot see the details on a particular user 's calendar either in the outlook desktop app or the web app

the user whose calendar is not visible, attempted to updated permissions but they would not save (see attached screenshot)

since she is on a mac, i checked all other mac users and am still able to see their calendar details

i am waiting to hear back if she is up to date on all her microsoft updates. i know she was still on el capitan due to VPN compatibility (though we should be able to upgrade her to sierra at this point)

I have a 2016 21.5" Apple iMAC with a Fusion Drive that came with OS Sierra installed as the default OS when I purchased it in December 2016. I upgraded to High Sierra and would like to go back to Sierra. I have completed a few "Clean Installs" and have a OS Sierra Thumb Drive however after going through the process for a Clean Installation, the Sierra Thumb drive is not recognised or visible and when I reinstall the OS it goes back to High Sierra again. I do have a time Machine Backup and this option does take me back to Sierra but I want to go back via Clean installation - not via backup.
I have also tried to do the downgrade on my 2016 MacBook Pro with a SSD Drive and this does not work either.

I am used to typing the first letter or two of a long folder name, then pressing the Tab key. I like tabbing through my options, then pressing Enter when the right one appears.

Can I do this on the Mac terminal?

Thanks

Several users within my organization have reported issues to me where there are file attachments within a Mac Outlook 2016 email but the file attachments are grayed out.

This happens even though the email with the attachment have downloaded into the user's Mac Outlook 2016 Inbox. The users then have to wait anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes for the file attachments to become available and are able to be downloaded (depending upon the speed of their internet connections).

Our organization uses Office 365 as its email provider.

Is there any way of changing this so that Mac Outlook 2016 will completely download the entire email (including all file attachments) so the users won't have to wait for the file attachments to finish downloading when opening the email?

I am looking for a simplistic solution to add Apple Mac's to the corporate domain.
All of which are pretty new OSX - Sierra.

I want them on the domain - so I can push out updates/AV and group policies.

Have tried binding them but it doesn't really work; want a better solution.

"Add, copy, or remove a text box in Word 2016 for Mac

A text box is an object you can add to your document that lets you put and type text anywhere in your file. Text boxes can be useful for drawing attention to specific text and can also be helpful when you need to move text around in your document"

..."To position the text box, click and hold it, and then when the pointer becomes a  Four-headed arrow , drag the text box to a new location."

'new location' is always edges of document - how to place anywhere on page? Same with Mac TrackPad 2 or Apple Mouse

Hi, I'm using macOS Sierra Version (10.12.6) on my Mac. I am also running the new redesigned version of GarageBand.

Almost everyday I see an update in the AppStore for the "GarageBand Extra Content Package."  If I click to load it, it goes through all the "calculations" steps and when the progress bar gets to the end, it gives me the following error message:

                      "An error occurred while running scripts from the package "GarageBandExtraContent.pkg" (112)."

This goes on and on, day after day...how do I either correct this problem, or simply stop it from occurring any longer?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Best Regards,
Fulano

Hello. I have two MACs with Outlook 2016 on them. They are properly configured to send and receive mail via our Exchange 2016 servers. They connect and receive mail just fine. Sending is the issue. I have worked a decent amount with Outlook for MAC with Exchange and have never seen this before. When we send an email, it makes it to the Exchange server. We know this because the email sent from Outlook 2016 for MAC shows up in the Outlook for Windows 'Sent Items'. The problem is, that mail in the 'Sent Items' that has been sent from the Outlook for MAC has an envelope icon and you must click and 'Send' the email from the Outlook for Windows 'Sent Items' folder. Once we do that, the email continues on to it's destination. Like I said, I have never seen this before and I cannot really find anything like it on the web. Any and all help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know much of macs. I have 1 user on an SBS 2011 standard domain running a mac. he uses macmail. Things have been going fine for years now. In the last week or 2 he noticed that when he sends an email from the macmail (in rich text format) then someone on a windows PC (anyone else in the office) running outlook, replies, the font gets really small.

Any ideas?  I don't know all the details yet of if other windows users are cc'd, do they see the small font or is it just the mac.

what other questions come to mind?

Hi

I'm having a problem with the Finder application. I'd like my files to be displayed using list view and sorted by date modified. I can't seem to get this view to save each time I open Finder. I've tried "Show View Options" but there doesn't seem to be a "Save" or "Defaults" button. I'm trying to apply this to the "All Files" view in the hope it will set this view for all folders.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? it seems to remember list view but always sorts on "Name"

I've been working on a MAC server which has recently died that has a directly attached Apple storage array. We were able to replace the server with another used server which is almost identical but had to reload the OS. We've swapped in the LSI fiber channel card and attached the array. After we fire everything up we can see and manage the two raid arrays on the storage however we only see two sharepoints/mounts. The problem we are having is that data / volumes or possible an addition mount point appears to be missing as in all the data is old or folders that used to be there are gone. We are in the process of trying to restore but in the meantime does anyone have any thoughts or ideas?

Using instructions below, all but one duplicates are removed [merged] - so that there are 2 entries for
contacts where there were 2 or more.

How do I delete all but one (no duplicate contacts) in macOS 10.13 / iTunes 12.7.0.166

https://9to5mac.com/2017/02/09/how-to-remove-merge-duplicate-contacts-macos-ios/

p.s. Why are there duplicate contacts?

I had this question after viewing Macbook Air/Pro- Security- Keylogger.

I do a lot of online purchasing and never heard of 'keylogger' before, so it made me think there is some cause for concern.  The question is from 2012.  Is this still something I need to have such an elaborate defense setup on my macbook like the author of that post recommended?  Or has Apple done pretty well to combat such intrusions?  I have an antivirus.  Should that suffice?

A client asked me if I was authorized to work on Apple products. I know how to work on the Apple products but what does she mean by being authorized? Does that mean that I have to have a license or a certification by Apple

Word Mac Version 15.38

How?

Hello.

The hard drive in this unit was not working properly.  I had a hard drive that I pulled from a windows machine and put it in the mac.  The mac now boots into windows (not my intention :)) but doesn't recognize my wired keyboard so I cannot do anything (it does recognize the wired keyboard during the boot process).

I am unable to get this unit to boot to CD or other with the mac wireless keyboard nor the wired windows keyboard.

Any suggestions on how to get it to boot from CD (besides the usual methods) so I can reformat the drive and install the Mac OS from CD/DVD?

Thanks.

Our emails run on a hosted exchange platform.
All our users connect using Outlook for Windows except one who uses Outlook 2016 for MAC.

I can't seem to find an archive function in Outlook 2016 form MAC to archive an Exchange mailbox.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I am very comfortable with Windows and Outlook but feel like a fish out of water with MAC's.

Please help!

I purchased a 2013 MacBook Pro on eBay and even though the machine works fine, it has one user named “Mac” which is the administrator but I do not know the password.

The seller has not replied to my emails to find out what the password is so is there a way for me to reset it or perhaps do a clean install of High Sierra?
