Friday, March 3rd, 2017| Author: One reason that many people move from the world of Windows to macOS is because they’re tired of the hassles of having their PCs infected with viruses and other malware. The other reason? The miseries of the tools that allegedly fix those problems but cause even new PCs to run slowly and crash more often. When new owners first set up their new machines, one question they may have is whether or not they’re taking a risk by not installing that same genre of application on their Macs. The answer to the question “Do Macs need antivirus or anti-malware software?” is “No, but” As a Mac user since late 1984, I have never had a virus, and I’ve rarely seen malware that caused an issue for more than just a few minutes.
That includes the early days of Mac when the operating system wasn’t Unix-based with all of its built-in security features. Related article: So, as a longtime Mac owner and user, a former Mac consultant, and a writer specializing in the world of Apple devices, I’ve usually used my Macs with absolutely no anti-virus or anti-malware software. Am I just lucky?
Not really, because even without a specific antivirus or anti-malware package installed, I take a lot of precautions and Apple has built in a number of “safety nets”. They’re the functions that are constantly monitoring what’s going on behind the scenes on your Mac to keep you safe. First, I’ll talk about Apple’s safety nets, then other precautions that can help keep your Mac safe with minimal fuss. Apple’s Built-In Safety Nets The first safety net keeps you protected from most malware. XProtect runs constantly in the background on OS X and macOS machines. It’s installed by default, runs without user intervention, and is even updated automatically.
Apple T2 chip. The next generation of security. The Apple T2 chip — featured on iMac Pro and the 2018 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar — keeps your Mac safer than ever. The Secure Enclave coprocessor in the Apple T2 chip provides the foundation for Touch ID, secure boot, and encrypted storage capabilities.
Since it is part of the operating system, it’s also very fast and doesn’t cause the usual slowdowns associated with dedicated antivirus/malware apps. As Apple is made aware of vulnerabilities and malware, both from “white hat hackers” and security firms, it invisibly patches XProtect to keep your Mac protected.
XProtect matches files and applications that have been downloaded to your Mac against a list of known “bad guys”. If it catches a malicious file, you’ll be notified immediately, usually with a message stating that “the file may damage your computer”, the type of malware or virus it caught, and a warning to move the file to Trash immediately (see image below). Gatekeeper is another handy tool that’s watching out for you. Have you ever downloaded an app from somewhere and seen a message that said something like ” ‘App name’ can’t be opened because it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store” or ” ‘App name’ can’t be opened because it is from an unknown developer”? That’s Gatekeeper at work.
Hi updated to yosamite and it's killed my back up external drive. I purchased a western digital My Passport/ essential external hard drive from staples. I bought a western digitalXXXXX i connected it to my mac and it doesn?t recognize it. I know there is power to it because the hard drive lights up. The My Passport portable external hard drive stores massive amounts of photos, videos and music, so you can easily take your treasured content everywhere you go. My Book for Mac Products. Portable Storage Personal Cloud. Shock tolerance and long-term reliability. And we back up (pardon the pun) the trusted My Passport drive.
I've been looking for an external for back-up/data storage for a while now. Best Buy has on sale this week for what looks like a decent price. A few reviews are knocking it because they say you can't remove the WD SmartWare software from it, but it looks like that can actually be done. 1 TB of external storage (even at USB 2 speeds) seems like it should cost a lot more. Should I worry about problems with it, or might this just be one of those times when there's actually a good deal to be had? I'm running a mid-09 MBP, btw.
I'll primarily be using this as a means of Time Machine backup for now. In the next few months, though, I plan to hook it up to an Airport Extreme to back up our two notebook computers.

But I doubt that 'Smart Ware' is non-removable. It is probably a windows software that 'backs up', but isn't really need.
You will have to reformat the drive for hfs+ anyway to use with Time Machine, which will completely wipe the drive and change the filesystem from fat32 to HFS+. A simple Amazon search btw found quite a few drives that could be good for your needs, and cheaper.
Look for the ones that say 1 TB, and look for reviews. One of the results I found had 4.5/5 stars, and 259 customer reviews. That is probably a good HD(its the top right one on that link I gave you). Good Luck BruceM. I've been looking for an external for back-up/data storage for a while now. Best Buy has on sale this week for what looks like a decent price.

Click to expand. You will not find a 1TB USB powered hard drive for much cheap, mostly because there are very few at the moment.
Yes, you can find an external USB 2.0 for $80 but those are full size require external power. The 'extra' software which shows up as another drive is really only slightly to moderately annoying. It is by no means the end of the world. And to be honest, it's in WD's best interest to include it. If people never use it, that is their choice. Everyone hates it until their external drive is lost or stolen. When things that they would prefer to be private become public, many wish they had used it.
Beginning with PowerPoint 2007 (for Windows) and PowerPoint 2008 (for Mac) both save presentation files to the PPTX file format. They can also save to the older PPT file format, but doing so could mean losing out on some of the new features in the newer versions of PowerPoint. Mar 10, 2012 The Microsoft Office file format is for Word, Excel and PowerPoint files between Mac and PC. The file format is called Office Open XML (OOXML) and was established by an international standards body. Office 2010 for Windows with service pack 2 or later and Office 2011 for Mac comply strictly with the standard.
• If you want to share your files with the most devices and none of the files are larger than 4 GB, choose FAT32. • If you have files larger than 4 GB, but still want pretty good support across devices, choose exFAT. • If you have files larger than 4 GB and mostly share with Windows PCs, choose NTFS. • If you have files larger than 4 GB and mostly share with Macs, choose HFS+ are the sort of thing that many computer users take for granted.
The most common file systems are on Windows, APFS and HFS+ on macOS, and EXT on Linux—though you may run into others on occasion. But it can be confusing understanding what devices and operating systems supports which file systems—especially when all you want to do is transfer some files or keep your collection readable by all the devices you use.
So, let’s take a look at the major file systems and hopefully, you can figure out the best solution for formatting your USB drive. Understanding File System Problems Different file systems offer different ways of organizing data on a disk. Since only binary data is actually written to disks, the file systems provide a way to translate the physical recordings on a disk to the format read by an OS. Since these file systems are key to the operating system making sense of the data, an OS cannot read data off of a disk without support for the file system with which the disk is formatted.
When you format a disk, the file system you choose essentially governs which devices can read or write to the disk. Many businesses and households have multiple PCs of different types in their home—Windows, macOS, and Linux being the most common.
And if you carry files to friends houses or when you travel, you never know what type of system you may want those files on. Because of this variety, you need to format portable disks so that they can move easily between the different operating systems you expect to use.
But to make that decision, you need to understand the two major factors that can affect your file system choice: portability and file size limits. We’re going to take a look at these two factors as they relate to the most common file systems: • NTFS: The NT File System (NTFS) is the file system that modern Windows versions use by default. • HFS+: The Hierarchical File System (HFS+) is the file system modern macOS versions use by default. • APFS: The proprietary Apple file system developed as a replacement for HFS+, with a focus on flash drives, SSDs, and encryption. APFS was released with iOS 10.3 and macOS 10.13, and will become the mandatory file system for those operating systems. • FAT32: The File Allocation Table 32 (FAT32) was the standard Windows file system before NTFS.
Comparing two similar lists in excel on mac to find duplicates. (a developing main list and several other lists which need to be compared to the main) I need to find duplicates (but also fuzzy duplicates) - e.g. You can do this with the advanced filtering option in excel 2011 on a mac.
Explanation: =COUNTIF($A$1:$C$10,A1) counts the number of names in the range A1:C10 that are equal to the name in cell A1. If COUNTIF($A$1:$C$10,A1) = 3, Excel formats the cell. Because we selected the range A1:C10 before we clicked on Conditional Formatting, Excel automatically copies the formula to the other cells. Thus, cell A2 contains the formula =COUNTIF($A$1:$C$10,A2)=3, cell A3 =COUNTIF($A$1:$C$10,A3)=3, etc. Notice how we created an ($A$1:$C$10) to fix this reference. Note: you can use any formula you like. For example, use this formula =COUNTIF($A$1:$C$10,A1)>3 to highlight the names that occur more than 3 times.
Remove Duplicates The below example teaches you how to remove duplicates in MS Excel. Click any single cell inside the data set.
On the Data tab, click Remove Duplicates.
Ever need to find duplicate cells in Excel? There are many ways you can do this. You can use a formula, Excel’s built-in “remove duplicates” functionality, even code a solution yourself in VBA. However, you can use conditional formatting to see where the duplicate rows are without deleting them.
Normally, people use conditional formatting for highlighting simple things like if a cell is above or below a specific number, but with a simple formula, we can create out own custom conditional formatting scheme. With that said, let’s say we have some data like so: We want to see where there are multiple Unique IDs since we don’t want any data with duplicate Unique IDs. Before we apply a conditional format, let’s select the entire A column. TIP: The reason for selecting the entire A column is to apply the formatting whenever your data increases to more rows. If we just selected the data you have now, the conditional format will not apply to later cells when your data grows. Now go to the Home tab –> Styles Group –> Conditional Formatting –> New Rule The New Formatting Rule dialogue box pops up. Select “Use a formula to determine which cells to format” and the formula is the following: The first equal sign is to denote that we’re going to enter a formula.
Then the condition becomes A1=A2 which means to say if the value of A1 is the same as A2, then the condition is true and we want to apply a format. Now let’s setup a format. Click on the Format button and go to Fill to put a light red background color. You will be brought back to the New Formatting Rule dialogue box. Click OK on this box, too. Now the sheet is applying the format: This is great, but how does it work?
We entered the formula as =A1=A2, so how does it know A11=A12? The way that conditional formatting works is that it evaluates each cell that the conditional format is applied to. And when it moves from cell to cell, so does the formula. If you remember my post, this formula is using relative referencing. So you can imagine this formula as being copied from cell to cell, so the formula changes in each cell. The conditional format formula in cell A11 is actually =A11=A12. Wait a secondnow the entire A column is pink after the data!
Use Razer BlackWidow (PC Edition) on a Mac This is probably useful only to a few people – but if you are one of the mac users who bought a Razer BlackWidow keyboard (PC), this should be helpful. “BlackWidow” is a mechanical keyboard for a reasonable price, better than the default apple keyboard. It’s called a “gaming keyboard”, so after unpacking you’re official member of the “Cult of Razer”. Mac edition confusion The BlackWidow keyboard has a PC layout (which I’ll call “PC edition”).
There is also a “Mac edition” – but it wasn’t available in Germany and costs about 50€ more than the standard edition, just for having USB ports and illuminated keys. That’s where things get confusing aka annoying: • There are OS X drivers from Razer, but only for the “Mac edition” • According to the FAQ they absolutely don’t work with the “PC edition” • But: The OS X drivers work flawlessly with the “PC edition” • The firmware updater is only available as Windows software Layout This is a standard PC keyboard layout, so. • Instead of option (alt) keys a “windows key” on the left and the “application key” on the right. I’m sure by this point that you’ve gotten an answer by some other means, just commenting in the event someone has a similar question. It should work with at the bare minimum of having every function you’d expect from a standard keyboard.

I am not typically an OSx user, but I’ve been having to learn. My fiance’s MacPro desktop was most recently running El Capitan. The AEFI (apple’s proprietary version of the new UEFI which has been adopted by PC manufacturers to be an update to the BIOS. Apple exclusively handles updates to the AEFI through exclusively through their own software. He now runs CentOS which is a version of Linux not known to be the most up to date and compatible with systems such as Mac and bleeding edge flagship devices, but I was able to use the keyboard in a plug and play manner (linux does not automatically install drivers for newly discovered devices). Im unsure the stability of this, but there is a github repo which includes OSx and Linux drivers from the community which are supposed to add in the functionality of even being able to modify the color scheme for the chroma’s backlight.
In Microsoft Outlook 2013, folder and calendar permissions can be disabled by your organization or may not be a supported by your account. Many third-party calendars can be added to Outlook with limited options. A Microsoft Exchange Server account is required to manage permissions for a calendar. If you're an Office 365 subscriber, you have access to Exchange services, including calendars.
If you are using Gmail with outlook, type all mail in the window to select the archive folder. See the picture below. You can even type the name of some other folder which you intend to use for archiving messages. Click move to the selected message. Step 3: From the outlook menu present on the top of your screen, click on the message option.
Although calendar permissions are not available for Internet calendars, you may share your calendar with another person via email. Outlook Calendars If you're connected to Outlook with your Microsoft Exchange Server account or Office 365 account, you should be able to access your calendar permissions via your calendar's Properties dialog. Right-click on your calendar in the Calendar Folder pane, hover your mouse over 'Share' and then click 'Calendar Permissions.' If 'Permissions' is grayed out, the calendar you have selected is most likely not an Outlook or Exchange calendar.
It is also possible that your organization restricts access to sharing permissions in your account for security purposes. Calendar Permissions Permissions for Exchange and Office 365 calendars in Outlook can be accessed in a number of ways.
Right-click on your calendar, click 'Share' and then 'Calendar Permissions,' or click 'Calendar Permissions' in the Properties group of the Folder ribbon. Alternatively, right-click on your calendar and then click 'Properties,' or click 'Calendar Properties' in the Properties group of the Folder ribbon, and then click on the 'Permissions' tab. If Calendar Permissions is unavailable, you may be trying to access permissions for an Internet calendar.
Internet Calendars Calendars managed by third-party services, such as Gmail, Yahoo or AOL, can be connected to Outlook as an Internet calendar. Although you can modify most Internet calendars, calendar permissions are not supported. To determine if your calendar is an Internet calendar, click the 'File' menu, 'Account Settings' and then click 'Account Settings.' Click on the 'Internet Calendars' tab to view your Internet Calendar data.
Click 'Change' to modify one of your calendar's subscription settings or click 'Remove' to delete your connected Internet calendar. Internet calendars can be shared in Outlook as an HTML email with an iCalendar file attachment. Share Your Calendar via Email To email your calendar, click 'Calendar.' Right-click your calendar in the Folder pane, hover your mouse over 'Share' and then click 'Email Calendar.'
Quicken Mac 2018 is a glorious flaming waste of time if you want a semblance of tracking investments. I have been using Quicken Mac since 2004. I have diligently been forced into upgrading purely because mac has improved with time and no longer can run older versions of Quicken. I am now on the 3rd round of customer service calls.
I've used quicken for about 20 years and have been frustrated at having to run the windows version in a virtual machine. I tried many of the mac alternatives, but none even came close to the slickness of quicken. Finally, I started rethinking the whole thing and realized that quicken didn't even serve a purpose anymore, at least not for me. When we all wrote checks for everything and it often took a week or more for checks to clear, particularly bills by mail, and there was no real time online data available from the bank, it made sense.
However, there's a reason this software category is being neglected. The world has changed. Most of us don't write checks anymore. We pay our bills electronically. Account activity is reflected within hours on the banks site as pending or processing. The bank has functionality similar to quicken. I can run reports, categorize transactions, set rules, aggregate accounts by linking to external accounts.
I was spending hours with quicken, hand entering receipts, downloading data and matching and reconciling. Reconciling is itself an outmoded concept.
What am I reconciling to? I'm reconciling quicken to the bank, not the other way around.
That process has never caught a bank error, only a quicken error, usually caused by me. So, I was a slave to the software, the process and my own outdated thinking. A word of caution on using third party aggregators.
You may be violating your banks online service agreement by providing your authentication information and putting yourself at risk of the bank telling you 'too bad, so sad' if you suffer a breach, regardless of the source of that breach. Do you really want to get into a fight with your bank or the third party aggregator over who is responsible for making you whole?
Just use the financial institution's online capabilities. • Answered by Hal S from Plano • 13-Jun-2013 •. Intuit's new program, Quicken Essentials, lacks many of the features of Quicken and may not meet your needs. The most recent Mac version of Quicken is Quicken 2007, and it is incompatible and will not work on the latest Mac operating system, Lion.
Intuit has recently announced that they will provide a version of Quicken 2007 that will run on Lion, expected in spring 2012. That's encouraging, but you might want to wait and see, since Intuit hasn't been to good at keeping their promises. There are several alternative banking programs available that are newer and better supported than Quicken that you could check out, but they all have their own shortcomings.

A complete software solution includes everything you need to install and use your HP printer. This collection of software includes a full set of drivers, software, installers and optional software.
Dear Carolyn, Thank you for your swift response. However when I went through the procedure it repeated responds: The selected printer software is available from Apple. Click Add to download it and add this printer. Having pressed Add Printer it goes through a seemingly optimistic procedure only to finally respond with Setting up HP OfficeJet 5740 series [D4967B The software for this printer is currently unavailable. Please contact the printer's manufacturer for the latest software. However I know it must be available as I have seen it on an Apple list as 3.3.2 for the OfficeJet 5740 [ P & S ] and 22.214.171.124 for the Allin one Fax [ F ] It would seem that the software has to initiate from Apple and not HP.
All very frustrating and I have spent hours and hours without success, but thank you for trying. Regards Robert Scott.
Thanks also for your quick response. The printer is on the same network but it did not pick it up. I also noted that one must do this within an hour of switching on the printer but no luck. My Apple iMac has joined successfully and I have switched on sharing, however I have not been successful in down loading the driver for my MacBook Air. It seems to take hours to download which cannot be right. Anyway I will have a few more attempts. The iPad can also see the printer and can print.
Thanks again for your response, but I really don't know how to solve it. Regards, Robert Scott.
