Re: Fake Flash Updater

When I get a flash update notice I go to system preferences and open the flash player and ask it to check for updates. If there is one I install it from that prompt. This seems to be a safe approach as I have not experienced anything malicious.

Re: Dashboard Weather Widget

Thanks Ray. That did it. I never noticed the "i" button before. Who knew it was so powerful and brought up that procedure.

Re: Dashboard Weather Widget

Yes, I do have Notification center on the El Capitan iMac and I have the weather on there. But, now how do I eliminate a city and/or change that city? I can't seem to find a way to edit the individual cities. I select the "edit" button and it takes me to the other things I can add to the center and ...

Dashboard Weather Widget

The cities are there but the information side is blank, gray. I tried adding a city and I got the card with Cupertino in the location, but when I tried t...

Re: Apple Support Robo call?

I had another person tell me to be careful and never say the word yes, even on the robo part of a call. Sometimes when I am not sure if it is a recording/robo call, when they say, "how are you?", I say terrible or I'm sick and when the voice just charges on, I hang up.

Re: Apple Support Robo call?

Richard, I would also like to throttle Microsoft tech support. Earlier I was able to stop them when I told them I was a Mac user and didn't use windows. They would hang up. Now they say, "we can help with that also". You can't win.

Apple Support Robo call?

I have received eight robo calls, today so far, from "Molly" at "Apple Support" about a breach of security of my iCloud account. "If I would like to speak to a representative of Apple Support press 1". "If I would rather hang up now, press 2" (weird). I don't press either, I just hang up. Anyone els...

Re: Numbers spreadsheet help

Thanks Ray. That works. I never found that procedure in any of the instruction manuals or in Apple Help.
In all cases it just said, "Drag a file from a folder".

Thanks again!

Re: Considering new Mac Mini

Sounds like a good approach Jay. Keep us updated on the system you put together. I have received other folks suggestions of using other brands of keyboards and monitors in order to keep costs down.
