Re: Importing CD's to macOS High Sierra iMac 10.13.3/Desk Top

It should work ... I just added a CD yesterday using High Sierra. I presume that you are importing commercial CDs. Right? Does your iMac have a built-in optical drive, or is it an external drive? If external, it does need to be plugged into one of the rear USB ports. Have you tried more than one CD?...

Re: Maps

Let us know what transpires at the Apple Store. I would be interested in knowing what AppleCare covers in your (heavy duty cycle) circumstance, if anything. What would Apple charge you to repair your current iPhone, and how did the AppleCare coverage affect that charge? Like, what would the charge b...

Re: Maps

Interesting question. I don't see any option to add side trip directions to either the Mac or iPhone/iPad versions of the Maps app. I would suggest that you either create separate sets of directions for each segment of your trip in Maps (your home to mall, and then mall to Tacoma), or just use Mapqu...

Re: Safari Reader Mode (Command-Shift-R)

And if you use Keyboard Maestro, the default settings provide "arrow" keystroke shortcuts in Safari, including "down arrow" to invoke Reader ! ;)

Safari Reader Mode (Command-Shift-R)

With Safari 10 and 11 (in macOS Sierra and High Sierra) you can make many website articles much easier to read ... without seeing ads and other stuff. It does't work with all websites, but I have recently discovered that it works with many. The feature is called "Safari Reader", and is activated wit...

On my iMac, I first added Desktop and Documents to my iCloud Drive (first screenshot), and then used Command-I to get size info for iCloud Drive. (second screenshot) Then, I dragged one 2 Mb ...

Re: Finder has pinwheel of death

Stephen,

What is your opinion of simply going to the App Store and then downloading and re-installing the most current OS? What would be the concern in this case?

Re: Finder has pinwheel of death

The reason that I asked about HOW you changed your Apple ID, is that there is a correct process so that things don't get messed up.

The instructions are located here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202667

Hope all turns out well, whatever steps you took!
