That is not what he is talking about. The email client is greyed out before you even tell the Outlook client what mailbox. I have one user at my office that the option is also entirely greyed out. This seems to be a local install issue with Outlook. The user is an admin on their Mac, but the option is still greyed out. I think a client app re-install ...

You will need a third-party solution, one that can switch on a per-app basis. Specific product recommendations are off topic, but as there are really only two that can do this, I'll let you see which may suit you best - SteerMouse or USB Overdrive. Both can do a whole lot more than simply switch natural scroll on & off.

Unknown is the name of the computer. You can change it by going to system preferences -> sharing and then changing the name at the top. I think you need to then restart your computer for it to take.

The /bin/bash that ships with macOS Catalina is really old (version 3.2.57) and does not support declare -A. Presumably you had been using the Homebrew version installed as /usr/local/bin/bash which does support declare -A. So assuming you have a /usr/local/bin/bash simply ensure that is present in /etc/shells then run chpass -s /usr/local/bin/bash. P.S., ...

Docker must be installed by a user with admin privileges. There's no way to get around that. The docker daemon needs admin privileges to run. You also won't be able to update Docker Desktop without admin privileges. However, you can install Docker Desktop using your temporary admin privileges and set it to start up when your non-admin user logs in. 1. ...

I don't have first hand experience with macOS, but if you copy the files normally, you should get a pop-up window asking you if you want to "keep both", "stop" or "replace" and a checkbox to apply that choice to all conflicts. Now, if you hold down left ALT or option key, the "keep both" button should change to "skip". Tick "Apply to all", choose skip and ...

According to their site, the Mac version is available via MacPorts. That being said, there are a number of requirements under Catalina (XCode, command-line developers tools, X11), so it looks as though it won't run native Mac, but will run as an Xwindows app. Also, the version I see available with MacPorts is 1.2.1, rather than the new 2.0.0 release ...

To capture it, don't you want pbpaste rather than pbcopy: var=$(pbpaste) Depending on your choice of terminal programme and setup, merely selecting the text may not copy it to the clipboard.

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 ...

The Alt key typically prefixes the sent symbol with the Esc character, e.g. pressing Alt+x generates the Esc (0x1B) byte followed by x. As far as I know, traditionally the Meta key used to set the high bit, e.g. Meta+x used to generate the byte 0xF8 (x = 0x78; 0x78 + the 8th bit is 0xF8). Or maybe there used to be two different popular configurations for ...

Specifically the "IP Address" towards the top of the image VPNs don't simply let you share the server's IP address – their real purpose is to connect you to a faraway network. Within that network, you will usually have an internal IP address exactly like you have one in your actual LAN. So this 10.76.x address is your computer's internal address in the VPN ...
