I don't know Chrome Remote specifically, but in general a UK PC keyboard has @ on shift ' and " on shift 2. If you switch the remote's keyboard to International English, those two will swap back to where they are on Mac, 2/@ and '/". International English has a slight downside though. It doesn't have dead-keys like on Mac for typing accents, instead if you ...

Here's a solution that worked for me - I installed MacOS Lion in Parallels (running on my Macbook Pro Catalina) and was able to get back to the same functionality from the original supported Scansnap software from Fujitsu. Note: I tried a lot of different versions of MacOS and Lion was the only one that worked without issue. YMMV with other versions of ...

If the command did not have permission run then nothing was done and you will be fine.

Like all (fairly) modern Apple computers, they are confined to the UEFI boot process and are unable to boot with a legacy BIOS process. FreeDOS is unable to boot in UEFI mode (see the FreeDOS wiki) and thus can not boot on an iMac.

Looks like a DNS issue. The computer names you use end in .local. Although that might have worked at home, at the office there is likely a different setup and those names are probably not right. Try to connect using the IP address instead of a computer name. You can also use ping to make sure you can reach the other machine first.

From comments, as a frame-challenge rather than an answer to the question as asked… It would be far simpler & less potentially dangerous to simply look up the existing password from Keychain Access, in Apps/Utilities.

You are getting the error because the cd command thinks you are giving it three different directories (summer, 2020 and classes) when it expects a single one. For files and directories containing spaces you need to either enclose in quotes or escape the spaces: cd "summer 2020 classes" # using quotes or cd summer\ 2020\ classes # escaping the spaces

For me this kept happening because AMPDevicesAgent, which is responsible for syncing iDevices, kept trying (and failing for some reason) to connect with my iPhone and iPad on the wifi network. Open the console (Applications > Utilities > Console.app) and see if you get something like this every time the Finder steals focus. error 21:07:14.188405-0700 ...

The fix is easy... just launch emacs from spotlight. When you launch emacs from spotlight, then move focus to another application, and open spotlight search to launch emacs again, spotlight takes you back to the running emacs instance. Whereas, when you launch emacs from the terminal, and then move focus to another application, and then try to go back to ...

On an SSD there is no gain or loss at all, so long as the drive overall has adequate free space. An SSD doesn't suffer from fragmentation in the same way as an old spinny rust HD & partitioning does not equate to 'half the disk' in the same way. Data placement has no relationship to any particular spot on the SSD, unlike HD. On macOS with APFS, not even ...

As far as I'm aware, there's never been a key command to create or destroy desktops, but that shouldn't impact you at all. Simply create as many as you are likely to need, rather than destroy each after you've done with it. "Spare" Desktops/Spaces in themselves don't impact your environment at all, they can even help. If you set up key commands, in System ...

I had similar issue on Catalina. Bootcamp would finish all steps and on restart boot back in to the MacOS. In my case reformatting USB stick in "FAT" thru Disk Utility helped.

No, it won't fit. DDR4 and DDR3 have incompatible connectors because they use different electrical pinouts.

I'm sure that there are many, many ways that you can do this, but I know that WinRAR allows you to extract individual files from an archive because I use the feature all the time. That would save you having to extract all of the other files extraneously. EDIT: After re-reading this and realizing that you want this to be done on Mac, you can see this page on ...

Alright. Tetsujin's answer worked great on another computer, but here is an alternative. I am not sure why or how this works, but whatever. Use the link I mentioned in my question, and follow all the steps. (Note that you might have to "show unsupported apps" or something like that.) It will still say that "You cannot update this app" or such. Restart ...

Disclaimer I used Anaconda mainly because of jupyter notebook and python version management.

From comments: I think the distinction is that the Apple ID must already have 'purchased' the software. After that, attempting to download it from an older macOS ought to present you with the opportunity to acquire the last version applicable to that OS. The solution in this particular case might be to attempt to re-access an earlier Apple ID which already ...

I suggest using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). You need a recent version of Office - Microsoft Word added support for the SVG vector image format in 2017 for Office 365 ProPlus subscribers and this functionality was also included in the Office 2019 release.

You just invented one more benchmark - "building this particular project". And the build environment in Amazon is way better than your Mac AT THIS PARTICULAR BENCHMARK.

Given the task you describe, compiling a Bable project, and the CPUs involved I think I know the source of the difference in performance. I wanted to answer earlier but had to do a bit of research to confirm my hunch. First, let's characterize the load you're putting on your system. Babel.js is written as a single-threaded, single process compiler that ...

They both have NVME drives, so that shouldn't be the bottleneck. I don't think there'd be a Mac vs Linux OS issue either, since Mac is linux based. Please backup that claim. MacOSX is indeed a Unix-like OS, with probably a lot of kernel code from BSD or SVR4 (Unix in the 1990s). But Unix predate Linux by more than two decades. Read the history of Linux (...

In addition to the other answers, I would add that instructions used in any given benchmark may not match the instructions used in your compiler. Basically, each processor may be faster at certain types of instructions, or one may be better-performing than the other in certain scenarios, for example, branch prediction failure. The code of one is not ...

Partial Fix: Doing the following things will let you at least remove all Bluetooth devices and successfully re-pair them, but they won't work after booting in to Windows. 1.

Adding to Mokubai's excellent answer: Instruction Set Extensions. Some extensions, such as AVX-512, are available in server processors (such as the SKX processor mentioned in the question) but not (or only later) in consumer processors. The Coffee Lake consumer CPU from the question, for example, does not support AVX-512. I don't think that compilers are ...

That's really not the way to do it. Some would, some wouldn't, none of your prefs would come across with it. You'd end up with a mess. You were given the best opportunity as you set up the new drive - which I'm assuming you did from scratch - right at the point it asked you to make the first account. You would have been presented with an opportunity to ...

Benchmarks are vague handwaves to some very specific performance characteristics (peak instruction rate) that often do not take into account other factors in a system. A non-exhaustive list of things that can make a big difference to programs but not peak instruction rates: Memory. Type, bandwidth, channels. These all make a difference in how fast data ...

A very handy solution is to install a Chrome Extension to allow mute individual tabs (instead of all running Google Meets sessions, or changing the output audio device).
