Cannot format/delete files micro SD card (I do not have fixture to format card) as I cannot access MENU screen.

I have a Mac where I use Parallels to use PowerPoint to create a presentation.

#1 It seems that MS did not give a viewer for PowerPoint files on a Mac. True or False?

#2 Can I Host GTM on the Mac, then open Parallels and Windows to demo a PP presentation?

#3 If I log onto GTM from Windows, then I assume any potential problems go away.

True?

Currently when this user types in the first few letters of an email address or a person's name within Mac Outlook 2016 there are no suggested email addresses that display.

So what methods can be used to regenerate this user's Mac Outlook 2016 email address auto complete list?

I am not as cluey on the Apple Platform as I am on the PC platform.  I have a client with a 3-4 yr old iMac.  They have 2011 Outlook for Mac installed.  It has multiple identities due to changes that have occurred over the time in how their email has been set-up.  
The issue is that at some stage in the last 2 weeks, they have lost the mapping of the folder list "On My Computer" in their left pane in Outlook.  Their email is setup as Exchange using Office365.  But for some reason he used to keep the majority of this emails in folders list in 'On My Computer" in the left menu pane.

Now this main folder list has dissappeared.

Is there a way of retrieving this or remapping the list?

I have read up online and one forum suggested we recover the identity folder list from the Documents/MicrosoftUserData/Office 2011 identities/{Name of Identity folder} from the Time Machine, which we have done.  It needed to rebuild the folders, then after that the Account even dissappeared. I had to re create the account, still no "On my computer" folders??

Can anyone suggest anything else to try and see if we can recover or remap these folders??
I am presuming the folders and files are still on the computer but just cannot figure it out.

I will be doing a Gmail to Office 365 migration for an organization that has several Macs that contain lots of contacts.

Some of these contacts are only saved on the local Mac.

We need to be sure that these contacts are moved into Office 365 as part of the migration and that no contacts are left on these local Macs.

How can this be done?

I use Audacity and have been recording my audio at 44.1 kHz. As far as bit depth, I have no idea, but have used the defaults.

I need to find the ideal for the best quality sound on my videos and podcasts, and find if my gear is up to it.

I have a MacBook:
2.4 GHz Intel Core 7
8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6770M 1024 MB

And my microphone is:
Blue Yeti
Ultimate USB

purchased a few years ago.

Can you tell me the best sampling rates, bit depth, etc. for my recordings and also the maximum values my current gear can support?

Is this microphone sub-standard to give a professional sound?

Suggestions on improvements?

Thanks.

I have a code that generates a serial number.
Dim ws As Worksheet
    Dim r As Long
    Dim ReqNo As String
    Set ws = Worksheets("MainRecord")
getNum:
    r = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp)
    ReqNo = r + 1
    If IsNumeric(Application.Match(ReqNo, Worksheets("MainRecord").Range("C:C"), False)) Then GoTo getNum
    On Error Resume Next
    Me.REQUESTNO.Value = ReqNo

It can pull up but only number but when I format my codes using these format

Dim ws As Worksheet
    Dim r As Long
    Dim ReqNo As String
    Set ws = Worksheets("MainRecord")
getNum:
    r = ws.Cells(ws.Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp)
  ReqNo = "RAS17" &  format(r + 1,"00")
    If IsNumeric(Application.Match(ReqNo, Worksheets("MainRecord").Range("C:C"), False)) Then GoTo getNum
    On Error Resume Next
    Me.REQUESTNO.Value = ReqNo

I am getting an error because maybe of the ISnumeric  code.

I ll be glad if you can help me with this.21223.JPG

Hi All,
I have a client with an older Macbook Pro.  She wants to give the computer to another person.  I have removed the OS in the  macOS Recovery console.  When I got to Reinstall Yosemite, it prompts to enter an Apple ID/PW.  I have tried entering the current owner's Apple ID/PW, but will not let me download the OS.

I have tried:
-Also in the Recovery Console, I have gone to help, logged into iCloud using my client's credentials, then reverting back to the above steps, but still no luck.

Question:
How can I reinstall Yosemite onto the Mac?

My friend says her MacBook locks up when she start using Dropbox. And neither of us like Google, so Google Drive is out.

"Large": 250 MB or so...

What is a good free platform for large file sharing?

I could delete the file after transferred, if there is a cap on the file space permitted...

It needs to work on Windows also, but mainly Mac.

Thanks.

I have a macbook pro early 2011.  I run bootcamp, and am running windows 10. I'm almost always in windows, and I noticed the other day, that it gets really hot, so hot I can't touch the bottom of the laptop. About 1 year ago, I replaced the battery with a new battery and a new Samsung SSD.  So I Cleaned fans at that time, and it's strange why it's running so hot.

Any idea's what I can do to not make it run so hot?  Is there a way to check and see if the processor fans are actually working?
Not sure what else can cause it to burn up?

After logging on and while using his Mac OS X 10.9.5 computer a user repeatedly receives messages about things wanting to access and use the keychain similar to the message shown in the screenshot.

I have already performed first aid on the keychain and then verified the keychain but continue to get this message.

If we click the Cancel button this message continues to appear and keeps prompting for this password which we don't know.

What can be done to fix this issue?

Can someone recommend a safe Bit Torrent downloader for Mac OS X Sierra?  Previously the user has Utorrent, but MalwareBytes Mac 3  and Trend Micro quarantined them.

I told the user that the 'torrents' are where all the Ransomware for Mac seems to originate from, so they have been warned.  

Thanks.

Does it matter which of the user profiles I use time machine on within on a mac, if I have previously used it on another profile.  Does it continue to just backup as normal because it remembers the old profile or will it try to create a new backup not linked to the old one because I am in one of the other user profiles?

iMac Late 2012 running 10.12.6 just recently started regularly dropping both the Ethernet and the Wifi Internet connections. Restarting Verizon FiOS router, changing Ethernet cables, changing Mac Network Locations, deleting/adding back Ethernet interface do not resolve the issue. Problem seemed to have begun after a macOS update.

Thanks

I have read several articles online that instruct me to go into the Outlook Preferences and then click on the "Sync Services" icon.

The problem is that I don't see "Sync services" anywhere.

I also don't see this even after putting several Mac computers within the Office Insider Fast program.

What other options are available within Mac Outlook 2016 to go into the "Sync Services" menu?

Where can I find the "Sync Services" options within Mac Outlook 2016?

I bought this one about a year ago, opened it uf a fews days ago, and learned it had a hardware failure...

http://www.dinofire.com/product-detail/dinofire-dr100wireless-presenter-with-red-laser-pointer/

I need something like it, from a different manufacturer, that connects through USB or BT.

I need it to have at least:

1) a laser pointer
2) Up / Down arrows

And it must function well on a Mac.

Suggestions?

Thanks

have a DinoFire DR100 that I can not get connected to my Mac.

http://www.dinofire.com/product-detail/dinofire-dr100wireless-presenter-with-red-laser-pointer/

I found the little USB chip and inserted it into my Mac. A window popped up that prompted me to configure my keyboard, and the letter to the right of my leftmost Shift key was a z. But this failed.

I got another window (no screen shot available) which showed an error with two buttons:

Skip   OK

I clicked OK and have not been able to get that window to pop up again. I would try Skip the next time.

Does anyone know how i can get this pointer configured for my MacBook?

Thanks

Hi, I have a Macbook Pro and iMac on my desk, and they obviously both have their own keyboards and trackpads.

I am wondering if it is possible to do the following two things:

01 - control my iMac using my Macbook (keyboard and trackpad) so that I don't need to use the iMac keyboard and trackpad?

02 - swap and flick my Macbook screen up onto the iMac screen if i need a larger screen and flick back again (etc)

A few things to note:

- i am using the new Macbook Pro so it only has the USB C ports
- the iMac is one year old and has all of the usual ports

Thank you in advance for your help.
