I have a bunch of Macs married to Active Directory. I want to change the default web browser from Safari to Chrome. The machines are running 10.13.5 . I want Chrome to be the default even when a new user logs in on a mobile account for the first time. Anyone know how to accomplish this? Thanks!
Hi there. On my WordPress site, we are using BeaverBuilder and we have a plugin called PowerPack Addon installed and are using the Modal Popup module. We also are using Foobox Pro installed. On this page https://ccdenver.org/engage/ the video modal popup automatically pops up and starts to play the video in Firefox on a PC. However, on a Mac the popup modal opens but the video hangs. Any ideas on how to get that to autoplay like it does on a PC? Also, I have ?rel=0&autoplay=1 at the end of the YouTube string.

Any ideas experts?
I'm experiencing issues when I attempt to set up an exchange email account on a Windows 10 computer and a MacBook. I was able to successfully set up the email account on an Iphone and an Ipad. Exchange is running on an SBS2011 server.  After running the Microsoft Connectivity test, I received the following result:

The Microsoft Connectivity Analyzer is attempting to build certificate chains for certificate CN=remote.xxxx.com.
       A certificate chain couldn't be constructed for the certificate.
      Additional Details
The certificate chain couldn't be built. You may be missing required intermediate certificates.

How to I How do I build the certificate chain to include the required intermediate certificate?
In my downloads, a question mark in a box is followed by hundreds of automatic two-byte downloads. I move them to trash and empty trash, but the question mark cannot be deleted. Yesterday it downloaded over three thousand times before I used Safari and noticed it. The Safari screen comes up with a larger-than-icon-size black and white Safari logo, which repeats across the page at a diagonal, and starts the downloading again. Can I uninstall Safari and reinstall a fresh copy somehow? I've run Malware Bytes and it says the system is clean. But it seems infected to me. Any suggestions? I use Firefox for work, and those are the only two browsers I have on my laptop.

Hi - I am trying to setup bootcamp for a client's mac and dual booting with Windows 10 . I have done this often enough without a glitch. This time i am getting the same error all the time during the partition stage , it just comes up with the attached error. I tried repairing the disk, upgraded it to High Sierra. Beyond that i am not sure what the next step is beyond reformating (which will be a pain). This mac currently has Parallels running on it, but i cant see why this should make a difference, thought i would mention anyway.
Some tips would be most welcome.

Has anyone encountered an issue with Outlook 2016 on a Mac running High Sierra, where certain email are not automatically downloading images? I've updated the IOS to High Sierra, attempted to update the Office product but no updates are available. I've already checked, Preferences -> Reading -> Security, and checked "in all messages" for automatic download pictures from the Internet, and some emails show images while others do not.
I've not really asked Mac questions on EE, so here goes ...

I've successfully set up stunnel for Windows and Linux clients. Now to set up for Mac. I've gone to the website http://macappstore.org/stunnel/ and followed the instructions there which are:
1. Press Command+Space and type Terminal and press enter/return key.

2. Run in Terminal app:

    ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" < /dev/null 2> /dev/null
    and press enter/return key.
3. Run:
    brew install stunnel

Open in new window

And then it says, "Done! You can now use stunnel."

Well, not exactly. Where do I put my stunnel.conf and certificate.pem? How do I make stunnel run automatically at boot time?

After going through the installation steps shown below, I have new files in /usr/local/etc/stunnel, including stunnel.pem, etc. I've copied my stunnel.conf and certificate files to this folder, but again, not sure how to get stunnel to start as a service at boot-time with MAC.

The web instructions aren't very complete. Need additional assistance.
How can I pull the short name of user 502 (on a Mac) in a script to set the computer name?  For example, one laptop has user 502 w/ short name of msmith, I need msmith to be used in the following where $502-short-name would be msmith.  I tried the id command, but it returns too much info.

sudo scutil --set ComputerName-$502-short-name
sudo scutil --set LocalHostName $502-short-name
dscacheutil -flushcache

I have some problems with Macs at my job. People use Apple Mail to send their emails. OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

Everyhing worked fine until last week. If she wrote a email and put her cursor back in a sentence, the letters are writing at the end of it.

She cannot put her letters where she want, they always go at the end of the sentence even if she place the cursor everywhere in it.

Do you have an idea of what is the problem? I did the command trick to put the encoding to UTF-8 as default. It works 2 days and the problem came back.

Hi, I downloaded and installed visual studio for mac and created a new Web Form Project.  I've noticed a couple of differences, but the biggest one is that I see no tools in my toolbox.  I also can't open a design view.  I've tried to check for updates and I'm still unable to see anything.  Has anyone experienced this?  Does anyone have a solution?
