In short: No. You can't change the settings There is a file com.apple.spaces.plist which defines settings for each virtual desktop, but I couldn't find any signs of numerical limit. So I believe that this limit is somehow hardcoded in script that creates new spaces. I however found a (hackish) way to add more than 16 virtual spaces to 1 display. Simply ...

I don't know what "iball headphones" are, but this is a common problem with USB mic's. There is a temporary workaround (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6602025?start=45&tstart=2), and it's worked for me.

I don't know the answer yet either, but all of the sudden Google Chrome is also slowing my entire computer down to a near standstill. I've switched to Safari until I can find an answer. It's seems to be happening on MacBookPro's older than 2012 that aren't running Mavericks. I've been worried to install that because I've heard some nightmares in ...

I did something similar to the original poster, except I used GParted's liveCD as a live USB (it contains TestDisk). It was really important to pick EFI GPT for the partition table type. Not Mac, not Intel, but EFI GPT. Anything else doesn't find your partitions and searching for them takes a LONG time. Additionally, once I found my partitions almost ...

Figured it… The Windows machine generates this error - logon failure: unknown username or password OS X & re-presents the login page. No amount of credential-checking/switching seems to work. It appears that there is a Console error generated on the Mac at the same time as the Windows machine tries to connect - od failed with 2 ...

From How to add more desktop spaces : You can create up to 15 additional desktop spaces in Mission Control (16 total desktops, plus Dashboard). If you create the maximum number of desktop spaces in Mission Control, you can still add new spaces by going into full-screen mode with an app. Apps that support full-screen mode will have the ...

No, he can't. MAC addresses are broadcast on a network by default, it's how switches figure out where traffic should go. Anyone that cared could easily observe many of the MAC addresses of the devices on their network.

Lets say you start composing an email on your mac 1. You walk into the room with mac 2. You can finish composing the email on mac 2 by clicking the chrome symbol. It will even work with iPhone's, iPad s, iPods, etc. There is an article on it here.

This is Handoff, part of the Continuity features in 10.10 Yosemite. In this case, with Google Chrome, your open tabs are shared between computers, so you can continue browsing when switching devices. To turn off Handoff on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, go to Settings > General > Handoff & Suggested Apps, and turn off Handoff. On your Mac, go to ...

If your URL doesn't always end in ".aspx" but you do always want the 7 characters immediately preceding it, you can use this formula instead: =MID(A1,FIND(".aspx",A1)-7,7)

Assuming all of the URLs end with your seven digit number followed by .aspx, you could do this. Say the URLs are in column A, starting in row 1. In cell B1, put: =MID(A1,LEN(A1)-11,7) Copy that down for all of the data rows.

If somebody is still finding this question when searching "gzip in Mac", I wrote a guide that it may be useful to somebody else. Here it goes: Compressing The most basic command will compress the file filename.ext and then replace it with filename.ext.gz in the same directory. gzip filename.ext If you don't want to lose your original file, then you need ...

Without seeing a picture of this, I wonder if what you're seeing could be sub-pixel anti-aliasing gone wrong because the display uses a different sub-pixel ordering than the OS expects. See if turning off sub-pixel anti-aliasing makes the problem go away: System Preferences > General > [ ] Use LCD font smoothing when available Un-check that checkbox ...

Have you downloaded & installed X11, a.k.a. XQuartz, from http://xquartz.macosforge.org/ yet? (It used to be bundled with OSX, but not any longer.) Once you download the .dmg file and install it from there, you should be good to go. If not, please provide more details.

There are several ways Excel handles the resizing of rows and columns that are located under a picture. Micorsoft has a short article about this phenomenon, know as "Object positioning properties". Long story short: check the properties of your images (right click, select "Properties.." and select "Properties" on the left side of the window), and set it to ...

There are several types of icc profiles; those for displays, those for RGB printers and those for CMYK devices (Presses, some PostScript printers etc). If your icc profile does not show, it is possible intended for a colorspace that differs from what you need.

The error log reveals that \xe2\x80\x9c appears twice in the path. That means that you have used ” rather than " in your path, which will not be interpreted correctly. Replace them both with " instead and you should be good to go!

A family member has a MacBook Pro with a file I need on it, but it’s pretty clear the Mac has some sort of malware on it. Regular Internet browsing—mostly via Google Chrome—opens up ad tabs on responsible sites like Google, the computer runs extremely slow, there are a number of weird problems with it, and it’s main user basically downloads ...

There's a excellent free app that does exactly that. It's called KeyboardCleanTool, and it's made by the same guy who made BetterSnapTool. Unlike with Keyboard Cleaner, you can still use your computer as normal while your keyboard is disabled.

Use /usr/bin/vi .bash_profile. Make sure that when redefining PATH, you include the original PATH with it. The reason you got these issues is that you lost your original PATH that contains the normal locations for software.

Actually, I found the easiest solution was to go to my profile settings (found in Profiles/Keys), removing the offending profile shortcuts(as profile overrides global in iTerm), in my case alt+left and alt+right and then the global shortcuts worked perfectly for me! Also, if you're using OS X, it's probably best to stick with system wide shortcuts, i.e. ...

It's a little late, but perhaps it will be of help to others. You can use the pkgutil command. For example, if you want to know what package the "less" command belongs to run: pkgutil --file-info /usr/bin/less Which will output something like: volume: / path: /usr/bin/less pkgid: com.apple.pkg.BaseSystemBinaries pkg-version: 10.7.0.1.1.1309742044 ...

Yes, you should be worried about this. Any website can detect if you have GitHub for Mac installed by detecting if ghconduit.com loads or not.

Your only hope is to use the software that came with your adapter (or other software available from the vendor of your adapter). Apple never opened the OS X Wi-Fi driver APIs to third-party driver/adapter developers, so developers of aftermarket Wi-Fi adapters for Macs have to write all their own software.

User B must have at least Read access to the overall Dropbox folder itself - which you must have done to even see in there. He then needs Read/write access to the sub-folder & the file inside that. Having read/write to the file but not the enclosing folder will give the error you're seeing. Every time you create a new file with User A, you will need ...

Hold down Cmd-S while booting to enter Single User Mode. Then follow the on-screen instructions to fsck the disk and mount it read-write. Then remove the /var/db/.AppleSetupDone file and reboot, and OS X's first time out-of-box setup assistant will run again. Create a new local admin account with a password you'll remember, and either delete the original ...

I think you've worked yourself into a paranoid tizzy by taking the worst possible interpretation of a bunch of log messages you don't really understand. I'm pretty sure SlingShot is Apple's internal name for what's publicly known as "OS X Internet Recovery". If your Mac's hard drive has been completely erased (not even the normally-hidden recovery partition ...

I was getting 403 forbidden error. What solved my problem is in httpd-vhosts.conf, I replaced the below config <Location "/modulename"> Order allow,deny Allow from all </Location> with <Location "/modulename"> Require all granted </Location> Did the same for all the Location tags. It solved the permission issue.

You should be able to download the update and then extract the DMG onto a portable, bootable drive. You may need the assistance of someone with 10.10 or 10.9. Either way, there are many articles available on this process, courtesy of your friends at Google.

All of those warnings that come with USB Prober scared me away. Instead, I used IORegistryExplorer, and it works fine for me in OS X 10.10.2. • In ADC "Downloads", search for and download the "Hardware I/O Tools for Xcode - October 2013". • Open the downloaded disk image. • You will find a "IORegistryExplorer.app" in the package. • Connect your USB ...

I'd probably use Perl to do it. #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use File::Find; sub rename_files { #skip directories return if -d $File::Find::name; my $newname = $File::Find::name; #turn underscores into space. $newname =~ s/_/ /g; rename $File::Find::name, $newname; } find ( \&rename_files, 'path_to_change' );

Well - as it says, you should reinstall Dreamweaver. You might also be able to copy the files from another PC where Dreamweaver is installed. You might want to try data recovery software, but the question would be if it would be worth the work. Reinstalling will be faster and more reliable to actually work.

If your issue persists after erasing the OS, it could potentially be the flex cable that connects your hard drive to the motherboard that is defective. You can bring your computer down to an Apple Store and they can run a diagnostic. EDIT: The repair is about $50.

I've seen the 'connection reset' error under different circumstances, but it ultimately resolved to having a 32-bit Flash plugin on a 64-bit system & browser. Not certain, but it's definitely worth investigating. Might even be worth grabbing the full distribution installer just to make sure all the right bits get plumbed in - this address moves around ...

On Linux, the host's fingerprints are in /etc/ssh (files named ssh_host_*). They are auto-generated upon package installation. I don't know where they lie in MacOSX, but I think that copying one set of keys over the other OS should do what you want. Be careful to adjust permissions and ownerships according to the original ones (for example, on Linux, private ...

You can determine greater value using MAX(A1,B1) function : IF(MAX(A1,B1)=0,0,IF(AND(MAX(A1,B1)>0,MAX(A1,B1)<=10),1,IF(AND(MAX(A1,B1)>10,MAX(A1,B1)<=80),2,IF(MAX(A1,B1)>80,3)))) If all values are positive number, you don't have to check lower bounds so you can simplify the function this way: ...

If I were you, I would make a third column C that is =IF(A1 > B1, A1, B1) Then you can just do you calculation on a single column. You can hide it if needed. Lets simplify the equation anyway, as for example if the value is over 80, we don't need to test further: =if(C1 >= 80, "3", if(C1 >= 11,"2",if(C1=0,"0","1")))) Note that once a test ...

It's about convenience and repeatability, in the same way that regular Homebrew is (usually) just downloading a tarball ("bottle" in their lingo) and symlinking a few files into place. Some folks also use Homebrew and Homebrew Cask to deploy apps to Macs in an automated fashion, even remotely.

As I suspected, the problems were caused by some 3rd party kexts that sneaked in when I used Migration Assistant to get stuff from my Hackintosh to my MacBook Air. Most likely they conflict with Yosemite since everything worked fine until I upgraded from Mavericks. Solution: type kextstat | grep -v com.apple in Terminal to see the 3rd party kexts use ...
