    Quicktime Player Can't Open An .mp4 File

    VLC is still a good solution - https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html Are you saying that VLC does not work for you?

    DIY external storage

    I echo that about OWC. I don't think you would go wrong with OWC, (although they tend to be higher priced) And, in my experience, OWC has good customer support. You can purchase external drive enclosures loaded, or ready to load with whatever storage you want to put in. I am considering one of...

    lldp on a mac

    hmm... CDP and LLDP are similar protocols. https://www.adminsys.ch/2012/08/23/use-the-cdp-cisco-discovery-protocol-with-mac-os-x/ https://gmarnin.com/network-cdp/ I think Wireshark is really the way to go. If your business has an IT person, (and assuming you have a valid business need for that...

    Slimjet browser

    How often would you check ALL 800? (only 800?) Lots of things are relative in this life, eh? I have not done a bookmark count for a long time. I have a folder "imported from IE", which hasn't been touched since two Macs ago. My daily-use Mac used to be a G3 iMac, bought new in 1999, and was in...

    Slimjet browser

    I hear you... Slimjet web page says that it supports any plugin or extension supported by Chrome. How about this one? https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/bookmark-manager-and-view It claims to do bookmark validation, too.

    Slimjet browser

    Also just curious: How often would you really need to validate your bookmarks? Surely not 24/7, always on (?) I suppose that there are different needs, but I only go through a bookmark check (maybe) once a year -- but then, I tend to prune out bookmarks, when they are not actively used -...

    System password

    You could have avoided the multiple aliases, by doing an "Option-drag" to the new location. That makes a copy of the file in that new location (no alias! :cool: ), then you just drag the files out of the old location to the trash. Did you have SIP disabled? SIP off, should let you move those...

    Help! I can't uninstall Windows in Mac Os

    Boot to recovery system. Open Disk Utility Choose the drive. It's the line in Disk Utility that shows the manufacturer's info. If you don't see that line, click on the "View" icon in the Disk Utility menu, so All Devices are displayed. So, select the manufacturer's info line (probably the top...

    Help! I can't uninstall Windows in Mac Os

    I think your error probably is saying that you can't re-join the partitions (removing the boot camp Windows partition, and rejoining that partition to the normal system partition.) This is usually because you have modified the partitions on the drive. You added the USER DATA partition, so that's...

    BenQ PD3200 Compatibility Questions

    The link that you posted was to the Singapore Apple online store, so I was assuming that was your actual location... But then, you might have noticed that the price was in "S$", not the usual "$", or "US$" in some cases. My links in post #4 were for Singapore retailers, so I would not suggest...

    BenQ PD3200 Compatibility Questions

    Ah, I did not realize you are in Singapore? That same adapter is $49 in US. Still high, however. Have you looked at other suppliers? https://www.newegg.com/global/sg-en/Product/Product.aspx?item=14G-000K-00053 or even this...

    BenQ PD3200 Compatibility Questions

    For your 2017 MBPro - a USB-C to DisplayPort cable should work fine. Apple sells this - https://www.apple.com/shop/product/HLR62ZM/A/moshi-usb-c-to-displayport-cable Or, Monoprice is usually a good choice - maybe this one: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=24443

    USING a 2018 Mac laptop (any) as a hard drive

    The "Plugable USBC-MD101" has HDMI, doesn't it? It shows compatibility with your MBAir (despite what @Cheryl posted)

    USING a 2018 Mac laptop (any) as a hard drive

    Those 3 docks that you posted appear to show that each of those are supported on 2018 MBAir. I kinda like the Plugable dock that you posted, and might prefer the "dongle" kind of connection over the "integrated-dual connection" form of the first two you posted. The only thing that I would...

    USING a 2018 Mac laptop (any) as a hard drive

    Last question first :cool: : https://thunderbolttechnology.net/blog/difference-between-usb-c-and-thunderbolt-3 You will see after reading that article that Thunderbolt 3 is much faster than USB-C. Both kinds of connections are provided via the same USB-C connectors. Thunderbolt requires an...

    Urgent Mac Os X Installer Does Not See Hard Drive

    If the hard drive is not showing in your Disk Utility, then it may simply have failed, and would need to be replaced. If you do replace the drive, you might also replace the SATA cable (the ribbon cable connecting the hard drive to the logic board.) And, finally, replacing the hard drive is a...

    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    The preference files are usually not very helpful, as the data/settings are saved as complex data, probably not decipherable unless you really know the code in the software, and how it all works when storing that preference data (I sure don't... ) But, that's where the OTHER user account can be...

    Finder and NeoOffice can't open a new Window

    You should also look in the other Library, the one in your user folder. As you may know, your user Library is normally hidden, so, in the Finder, drop the Go menu, and hold your Option key. You should see your Library appear in that Go menu everytime you hold Option. Another way to that folder...
