Apple-Q HowTo Video: Re-login without a password

Once you log into the Apple-Q web site you often do not have to log in again with your password. This is due to the security authentication process that is used. Passkeys are exchanged with the site and is remembered by your web browser. So all that is required is for you to Grant Access.

Depending on your settings within your browser it may also keep this passkey active even after you close your web browser.

Apple-Q HowTo: Use Apple Diagnostics to test your Mac

Apple Macs come with a Hardware Diagnostic Tool (formally called Apple Hardware Test) which few know about and, due to this, it is rarely used. So if your think that your Mac might have a hardware problem you can run this tool to test it. It does not do an extensive test, simply tests that the hardware is working, so you may need to do further testing if you feel there is a hardware problem that was not detected.
I have written a series of HowTo Tutorials called Clean Your Mac to help you diagnose and fix problems
with your Mac – both hardware and software.

Mac: Start T2 Mac from an External Drive

If you have a Mac with Apple’s T2 Security Chip (see the list in this tutorial) you will need to change a setting to allow it to start up from an external drive. External startup is disabled so that some unauthorised person is unable to access your Mac using their own startup drive. However if your internal drive becomes corrupted or fails it is good to be able to connect an external drive to either continue using or recover your internal drive.

Apple-Q HowTo- Apple-Q Web Sites- Easy Access (Mac,Safari)

Now that the Apple-Q and the Apple-Q-Cloud sites are linked (requiring a single login) it has become very easy to navigate between these sites and the Apple-Q-Core site via the Members’ Abyss menu on the main site. If you have your log in details saved you can even do so (almost) seamlessly.

Apple-Q HowTo- Firefox- Secure Cookies & Exceptions

Site cookies were originally designed to store your preferences for a particular web site however some sites abuse this by collecting additional personal data. Some cookies can even track you across multiple sites (called cross-site cookies). You could totally block cookies however many sites do not function correctly if you do this.

There is a compromise. You can choose to block cross-site cookies, delete all cookies when you close Firefox, and even add exceptions for those sites that you trust (like Apple-Q😀).

Apple-Q-Cloud: Calendar Sync (Mac)

Another advantage of the Apple-Q-Cloud is that it has apps that you can add to it to increase functionality. One such app is Calendar. Not only can you log on to view the Apple-Q Calendar online but you can now have it synced with the Calendar app on your Mac or iOS device. Any changes to the online calendar will also be seen on your own calendar.
Here is how… (Mac Version) [there is also an iPad version]

Icon
Apple-Q-Cloud: iPad App

Nextcloud Server is used to run the Apple-Q-Cloud. Nextcloud also has (client) apps that run on the Mac, iPad, and iPhone. The Mac version allows you to synchronise a folder on your Mac with one on the Apple-Q-Cloud. So you could, for example, have the full, automatically updated collection Apple-Q Tutorials on your Mac.
The iPad/iPhone app does that and much more. You can view the whole Apple-Q-Cloud within the app and selectively chose which tutorials to keep a local copy of along with which folder you wish to sync.
Here is how...

Apple-Q-Cloud: New Apple-Q Tutorial Alert

The is a very underused feature of macOS called Folder Actions. It allows you to attach an action to a folder in the Finder. The screenshot below shows some of these. In this tutorial I am going to add a Folder action that watches the Apple-Q HowTo Tutorial (Synced) folder an alert you when a new tutorial has been added.

Apple-Q-Cloud: Share Large eMail Attachments

You may wish send a friend some files (eg photos) via email but your email server will not allow it. Some email providers limit email attachment to only a few MB however by using the Apple-Q-Cloud you can send attachments of up to 1000MB.

Icon
Apple-Q-Cloud Sync

Ever wanted to have the whole Apple-Q HowTo Tutorial collection immediately available on your Mac and have it automatically update whenever a new tutorial is created? It can be done. In fact I use this feature to
backup the entire Apple-Q-Cloud to two other Macs
The NextCloud Server that we use to power the Apple-Q-Cloud has a Desktop app that you can use to sync all or part of the contents of a NextCloud Server that you have access to – in this
case the Apple-Q-Cloud.

Apple-Q HowTo: Gramps: Import Family Tree with Media

One of the biggest problems that I have had with importing my family trees into an application is making certain that the media remains attached to the entries in my imported family tree. The biggest problem is when that media is placed all over the drive and not in a single location. I have covered this in another tutorial but the best thing that you can do is to make sure that you place all of your media within a dedicated folder before you attach it to your family tree (no matter what app you are using).
If you are transferring your family tree between two different Gramps installations then you should Backup your family tree using Gramps then Import this backup into the second installation of Gramps (there are HowTo tutorial about this).
So this tutorial assumes that your media is all within one parent media folder. It is also assumed that you
have exported your family tree from your app as a GEDCOM file.
I have covered this topic with webtrees and I thought that I would do the same with Gramps.

Apple-Q Tutorials: Download All or Whole Topic

The main Apple-Q site and the Apple-Q-Core are handy when you wish to access a single
HowTo Tutorial, however downloading all of the individual tutorials on a particular topic
would require a lot of work.

download all of the tutorials on a topic or even the whole Apple-Q HowTo Tutorial
collection!

Apple-Q HowTo- Site Integration- Main, Cloud, Core (2022-04)

One of the most common things members ask me is how to access the Apple-Q-Core and Apple-Q-Cloud in order to access our over 1000 Apple-Q Publications (HowTo Tutorials, Apple-Bug, Selected Articles, and more). I have written Apple-Q HowTo Tutorials, placed the links in the Apple-Bug, and even send them Favourite & Bookmark links to add to their browser and include in their browser menu bar... but still they ask!

So now that the Apple-Q-Cloud is linked to the Main Apple-Q site, logging into the main site allows them complete access to both sites!

The Apple-Q-Core requires a separate login – but by using a simple step, it can be almost automatic as well.

Apple-Q HowTo: Web Site: Members’ Login (2022-04)

Apple-Q uses Single Sign On to securely log into its main site via an Authentication Server located on the Apple-Q-Cloud Site. You do not need to go there – you will be redirected there automatically when you try to login.Doing this also allows you to download the contents of the Apple-Q-Cloud directly from our main site. This includes the Apple-Q HowTo Tutorials, Apple-Bug, & Selected Articles.Members will be issued with an individual login. Once you are logged into the site I strongly suggest that you change the initial password that you have been given. You can do this by either going to the Password Reset Help page or by reading the tutorial:Apple-Q HowTo- Apple-Q Web Site- Reset or Change Password. The process is very simple and logs you onto the Apple-Q-Cloud at the same time! Here is how...

you just wish to change it to another one (maybe due to
security issues or you were given a default one)
(Change your password).

Apple-Q HowTo: Apple-Q Meetings Server: Name & Membership Number

Just a quick tutorial to cover how to add an About Me that includes your Real Name and
Apple-Q Membership Number.
We have people on our Meetings Server who are not easy to identify as Apple-Q Members.
We need to do this to be certain that only Apple-Q Members have access to our server –
unauthorised users could cause problems for our server and may even cause our server to be
banned.
We still like the fact that members can feel
relaxed and use their favourite username, so we
suggest that they simply add an About Me Note
to their Profile. It is very easy!

Apple-Q HowTo: Apple Preview: Create a Signature to Sign Forms (2022)

Apple has a Signature creation and storage feature built directly into its Markup Toolbar. You can use it (via the Apple Preview app) to create a signature that you can use to sign forms without having to print them, sign, then scan it back in, before emailing it. Once entered you can use it almost anywhere where Apple Markup is supported (Apple Mail, Preview, etc).

Apple-Q HowTo: Apple Preview: Batch Convert Photos(eg HEIC to JPEG)

The last couple of years I have been using my iPhone to take the Harvey Christmas Village photos. The problem with this is they are stored using Apple’s HEIC format which is not well supported with other non-Apple apps and devices. I could change the default format to JPEG but that is not as good a compression format as HEIC. I had imported the photos into Apple Photos on my Mac and had dragged them into a folder
ready to upload them to the HarveyCloud when, while not thinking clearly, I double-clicked on them and they all open with Apple Preview. Then followed another series of somewhat foggy events and I found that I had converted them all to JPEG.
Much later, I realised I had done something unusual – I then set out to find out how to replicate that method.

Apple-Q HowTo- AirDrop iPad-iPhone Screenshots to Mac (2021-12)

I was once again playing with AirDrop and found out another handy feature. I was writing an email on my Mac which required screenshots from both it and my iPad. So I opened the iPad app, took a screenshot, then AirDropped it to my Mac. With new Macs this could also be done using Apple’s Handover. I tried handing over the Mac email to the iPad, attaching the iPad screenshot, then handing the email back to the Mac but it was a bit tricky attaching a screenshot to an existing email (it can be done but required more steps). I could have started the email on the iPad then handed it o ver to the Mac then dragged the Mac screenshot onto it but I already had the email started. Besides, the AirDrop method should work for Macs, iPads, and iPhones made within the last 10 years.

Apple-Q HowTo: Gramps: Contextual Configuration Settings

Gramps has a slightly different way of implementing Settings / Preferences that most apps –
although I find it very useful. Apart from the general preferences for Gramps, located as
usual under the Gramp menu, most other settings are contextual. This makes it easier to
quickly find the Settings that are relevant to the feature of Gramps that you are currently
using. I will use Pedigree & Fan Charts as examples.

Apple-Q HowTo: AirPrint: Printing from Your iPad/iPhone (2021)

It would be almost impossible to write an article showing how to set up AirPrint because, as it is with modems, there are many printers that each use different methods to configure this service. I can however show you how to use AirPrint on your iPad/iPhone to print wirelessly to your AirPrint enabled printer. Your printer has to support AirPrint, and have it enabled, to use this method. There was a paid app that I was a while ago that allowed your normal printer use AirPrint. It installed on a Mac which had a printer attached – so you had to keep the printer on all of the time. So what do you need to do to print to your AirPrint enabled printer from your iPad/iPhone?

Apple-Q HowTo: AutoFill Passwords (iPad/iPhone)(2021)

Even though repeatedly entering your details is a great way to remember them (specially as one gets wiser, older, but more forgetful)... now where was I... oh yes, repeatedly entering log-in details. There is a feature in iOS12 and above (and a variation prior to that) that will autofill your log-in details when your iPad/iPhone asks for it – you just have to accept (or Cancel) it. This requirement to tap Accept/Cancel can be annoying but is necessary for security – allowing you to Cancel a request that you do not want. So here is how...

Apple-Q HowTo: AirDrop- Transfer Difficult Files from Mac to iPhone (2021)

This tutorial is the follow-up to two series of tutorials. The first AirDrop tutorial covered how to set it up. The next two covered transfer of files from the iPad/iPhone to the Mac. The next two in the AirDrop series covered the reverse – Mac to iPad/iPhone. This tutorial covers the problems that can arise when trying to get the iPhone/iPad to ‘read’ the file that you send it. The devices try to ‘guess’ which app might be able to open the file sent to it but it can sometimes get it wrong. There may also be another problem – there is no app on the iPhone/iPad that can actually read the file. Then when there is it will not show up in the Open with... options list (see right). This tutorial covers these issues and some ways to get around them (but not always). This is more of a discovery session than a tutorial.

Apple-Q HowTo- Clean Your Mac- Spring Clean- Speedup (2021)

There are many basic things that you can do to make your Mac both faster and easier to use. This can mean performing some simple tasks, organising your Mac better, or changing the way you use your Mac. Some things that people do to their Mac cause it to perform slower than it should. Also cleaning up as well as keeping an eye on your Mac can help you to maintain it in good working order. These tasks can be divided into three areas:

• Software;
• Management / Organisation;
• Hardware.

Understanding a little bit about how your Mac works can also help you to better use it. You do not need to have an in-depth knowledge, just the basics.

Here is how...

Apple-Q HowTo: Clean Your Mac: AppCleaner (2021)

I use AppCleaner for two different reasons:

  • cleanly remove applications and all associated file along with it;
  • fix an application that has stopped working due to faulty support files.When you remove applications from your Mac by simply dragging them to the trash, they often leave behind several files. These are not normally a problem but some apps store large data files that can take up a fair amount of space. It can also interfere with you installing a new version of the same app due to the new version trying to use the old versions support files.The most common reason that an application stop working is due to corrupted support files such as preferences. AppCleaner can remove these files while leaving the application alone effectively creating a clean install.

Apple-Q HowTo: Clean Your Mac: Corrupted PRAM / NVRAM

Your Mac stores needs to store hardware settings in specialised RAM while it is powered off. These stored settings can be: date, time, region, display, sound, keyboard, mouse, etc...

If these settings get corrupted then your computer could behave erratically with the symptoms being associated with the setting listed above. It is usually suggested that you perform other simple diagnostic tests before resorting to resetting this – see my tutorial Apple-Q HowTo- Clean Your Mac: Solve Unwanted Mac Behaviour.

Apple-Q HowTo: Clean Your Mac: Solve Unwanted Mac Behaviour (2021)

Sometimes your Mac may suffer from glitches or some unwanted systematic behaviour. This could be due to many things and the list is almost endless.

It could be hardware or software based but working that out too can also be difficult. I have recently been asked to diagnose an iMac’s strange behaviour and sent a list of possible solutions to the member. I thought that I would try to compile some possible diagnostic tests that members can try and, in doing so, help work out and perhaps even solve their Mac’s problems.

I will list each method using letters then numbered steps within it if required.

Also note: If you have a wireless or Bluetooth keyboard then the tests that involve holding down keys as you start your Mac may not work as these devices are not enabled until the end of the boot process. In this case you will need a wired USB keyboard.
