  • Upgraded to Mojave, and now I can no longer close windows / tabs with Cmd-W.

    I need to use Cmd-WW !

    I am using the latest version of my browsers on iMac (27-inch, Late 2012) w/ 24GB RAM. I checked the system preferences and nothing seems off.




  • the computer wont get back login and if it does its too slow to function




  • Mojave improved nothing. In fact, my mouse no longer functions as it once did. (I have tried more than one mouse. None work properly.).




    • Might be a changed or new setting with the mouse, what is wrong? Try to describe it, maybe someone can help, might even be me.
      That said, I own a Kensington Trackball, with special driver support, and I fear the next OS Version – for mojave I updated and driver is still working, but a new installation or the upgrade to 10.15 Catalina might change that.
      That said, I really hate the yearly upgrade cycle and jump usually a few versions. Still miss Snow Leopard, which to me was the best working version of Mac OS X.




  • Thanks for hosting this helpful site…

    I have just upgraded to Mojave (10.14.5 (18F132) on my Retina MacBookPro 15″ late 2015

    Speech does not seem to work – I have grown in the hobbit to use this feature a lot – when I highlight the text in e.g. Mail, then select SPEECH from the drop down menu under EDIT… START SPEAKING nothing happens…

    Do you have any fixes ?

    Best regards




  • After Mojave update my sound no longer works for anything. Internal or external or bluetooth. The “Headphones” show up in the Sound pane but I cannot select it.
    Siri started several times days after the update. I had never used it before.
    iTunes started and played my music a few days after without me opening it… again, no sound, just the little screen popping up to state the next song to play. I “quit” iTunes. It restarted immediately after so I quit it again. I guess it’s still off.




  • I just upgraded to Mojave and now the screen jumps around when I’m in Safari and, sometimes, I will be reading a page and it will rapidly scoot to the right and disappear! What is the problem and how do I fixe it. In easy terms, please. I’m not a techie!




  • Colours on my Imac have become all messed up after installing Mojave. Bue is orange and light colours have become blueish.




  • On Mojave, suddenly, after being able to do it at first on Mojave, now I can no longer Save any of my Emails (either on to my desktop or into a file). This is a big problem for me. I can’t find any Help Aids that address this. Please Help! (Everything also takes forever now. My iMac moves sooo slowly. But I’ll try one of the suggested ways to fix that which I’ve seen.). Thanks!




  • I’m now unable to play a cd using my external superdrive. I have a stereo good enough to tell the difference, and I don’t want to have to reimport all of my music in AIFF format (storage requirements notwithstanding.)




    • The macOS has long been picky about recognizing external drives as Superdrives. There have been other reports about Mojave not recognizing drives that used to work, so clearly this problem has gotten worse with time. When this happened with a Blue-ray drive that I bought some years ago, I called Otherworld for a DVD drive that they certified would work with the OS I was using at the time. You may have to do the same. Otherworld drives are much less expensive that Apple branded Superdrives, by the way.




  • When I get a picture sent to me in imessage and I want to look at it bigger (on my mac) I have to hold control, click the pic, scroll to open, choose run service, and then it opens. I never had to do that before. why?! how can I fix it?




  • I’ve lost location services after updating from 10.14.2. Have tried restarting, unselecting in system preferences, nothing. No maps, night shift, weather, auto time zone. Even tried making a new user to troubleshoot. I’m imagining this is a .plist file issue as well?
