How to toggle finder’s “Keep Both” vs. “Skip”, and when copying or moving files – why does the “default” seem to change?

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/07/02

Based on:

Via macos “keep both” versus “skip” – Google Search

When copying or moving files on MacOS using the Finder, sometimes you get a popup with chooses “Skip”, “Stop”, “Replace”, but at other times “Keep Both”, “Stop”, “Replace”.

Empirically:

  • “Keep Both” happens with less than 5 duplicate file names
  • “Skip” happens with 5 or more 5 duplicate file names
  • The “Alt” or “Option” key toggles between “Keep Both” and “Skip”
  • This was introduced around OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, as it used to be always “Keep Both” in all Mac OS X versions up to and including Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. The new behaviour has stayed in all OS X and macOS versions since.

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.
