Apple Mac OS X / OS X / macOS versions and history graphs – Wikipedia

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/03

Based on [WayBackmacOS – Wikipedia and follow-up of OS X – the versions and their names – as I always forget them and osx – How to find out Mac OS X version from Terminal? (via: Super User)

Release history (with release dates):

The graph with Apple Mac OS X / OS X / Mac OS versions cannot do without a graph showing the BSD and Unix inheritance.

Graph origins:

More complete Mac OS X / OS X / Mac OS and Unix timelines are below from macOS version history – Wikipedia.

Apple Mac OS X / MacOS: Dock keeps moving between monitors | Official Apple Support Communities

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/30

My Dock kept moving to another monitor every now and then.

This actually seems to be a feature but got me a while to find out what it does at [WayBackDock keeps moving between monitors | Official Apple Support Communities:

If you move the mouse to another window and pull it down to very bottom of the screen and hold it there, the dock moves over. To move it back, move the mouse pointer to the screen you want it on and hold the pointer at the very bottom of the screen.

This bites you when an application has features (like tools) at the very bottom of a window.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/06

For my link archive:

If you want it on USB in stead, the steps are simpler (the link below also links to other OS X and MacOS versions):

macos – How can I modify the list of Applications under ‘Open With…’? – Ask Different

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/22

Some interesting links on the “open with” database:

Simple solution to clean the list:

# Clean up LaunchServices to remove duplicates in the “Open With” menu.
alias lscleanup="/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user && killall Finder"`

These were by products of what I was really searching for:

Why are some items grey when modifying the “Open with…” settings?

Some applications are greyed out, for instance when editing the “Open with…” for the .cap extension (which are pcap network captures that Wireshark can process).

After the steps below, sometimes the menu still does not update for all files of that extension.

This alias helped me to get that to work: alias restart-finder='killall -KILL Finder'.

Links that helped me finding out:

The trick is to toggle “Recommended Applications” into “All Applications”:

Then you can select “Wireshark.app”:

 

The same happens when you filter on a name (for instance because you know that Wireshark will work fine):

A final thing is that you have to check “Always Open With” so it ends up in the list.
