TRANSCRIPT

In this episode, How To Change Screenshot Location on Mac.

By default, when issuing the keyboard shortcuts for full screen screenshot shift+cmd+3 or sectional screenshot shift+cmd+4, the default save location, is on the Desktop.

After a while, your Desktop can become quite messy.

An alternative would be, to have all screenshots saved in a Folder, anywhere you like on a Mac or even on an external disk, when issuing the Screenshot keyboard commands.

This can be accomplished by entering two simple one line commands in Terminal:

How To Change Screenshot Default Save Location
Straight to a demo.

Sooooo Let’s Get Started

Let’s first create a Folder, where you’ll like all screenshots to be saved, when issuing the Screenshot keyboard commands, I’ll create one on an external disk named “Screenshot Lib”.

Next, open Terminal and enter the following Two line commands, in the following format:

Line 1:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture location /path of Folder for Screenshots

Line2:
killall SystemUIServer

Therefore, for Line 1:

defaults write com.apple.screencapture location followed by a space.

The easiest way to enter the path is by simply dragging the Folder just created on the external disk to line one in Terminal as follows, followed by carriage return.

Followed by  line 2:

killall SystemUIServer followed by carriage return.

All Terminal commands used in this episode can be found in the description of this video below.

Now, as you can see, whenever executing the following keyboard shortcut shift+cmd+3 or shift+cmd+4, the screenshots are saved in the new default screenshot folder on the external disk.

To revert back to the Default screenshot location, simply enter the following two, one line commands in Terminal:

Line 1:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture location /Users/Username/Desktop
Replace Username with that of yours, in my case, it’s MacStudioA

Line 2:
killall SystemUIServer

And that’s all there is to it.

TRANSCRIPT

In this episode, How To Turn Your Mac into a WiFi Hotspot.

For what ever reasons, you might want to turn your Mac into a WiFi Hotspot. In order to do so, your Mac has to be connected to a wired ethernet connection.

An example where I’ve found this useful, is when the hotel room that I’m staying in, is equipped with an ethernet port, and as I always travel with a mini ethernet cable, I’m able to setup a WiFi hotspot on my Mac for my devices, like my iPhone and iPad.

Turn Your Mac into a WiFi HotspotStraight to a demo.

Soooooo, Let's Get Started.

Once an ethernet connection has been established for your Mac, creating a WiFi hotspot, is a relatively easy process.

Simply open System Preferences and click on the Sharing icon.

Now, if you’re logged in as a Standard user, click on the padlock, where you’ll need to enter your Admin user name and password to proceed. Alternatively if logged in as an Admin user, no padlock will be visible.

Next, click on the Internet Sharing  option, shown here. Then click on Wi-Fi.

Now click on the Wi-Fi Options… button to configure your WiFi hotspot.

By default, the Network Name, also known as your SSID, uses your Mac Computer Name, which you can change at anytime. I’ll change mine to MacStudioA Hotspot.

Leave Channel number to whatever is shown in your case and then click on the Security dropdown list and select WPA2 Personal, and enter a Password that you’ll need to enter when connecting your devices.

Once you’ve finished configuring your WiFi hotspot, click on the OK button to confirm.

You’ll then be presented with a dropdown dialogue box to turn on Internet Sharing. Click the Start button to activate your WiFi hotspot.

Now simply connect your devices to your WiFi Hotspot.

Anytime you want to turn off the WiFi hotspot, simply open System Preferences and uncheck Internet Sharing.

And that’s all there is to it.

TRANSCRIPT

In this quick episode, How To Change The Login Wallpaper in OS X El Capitan.

Changing the Login wallpaper in El Capitan is a relatively easy process.

Soooooo, Let's Get Started.

The first thing we need to do, is to make sure that the wallpaper that you’ll be using is in the PNG format with the following filename: com.apple.desktop.admin.

Therefore, since the wallpaper that I’ll be using is in the JPG format, I’ll just open it in Preview and export it in the PNG format and named com.apple.desktop.admin.

Change Login Wallpaper El Capitan
Next, make sure that the PNG extension for the login wallpaper is visible and that the wallpaper is Locked. Locking the login wallpaper, prevents it from changing anytime the Desktop wallpaper is changed.

To do that, simply right-click or ctrl-click on the login wallpaper and select Get Info. Then uncheck Hide extension and select Locked, as shown here.

Once that’s taken care of, click on Go from the menubar of Finder and then click the Go to Folder… option and enter the following path: /Library/Caches

Next, backup the current wallpaper named com.apple.desktop.admin in the Caches Folder, by simply renaming it.

Finally, simply drag and drop the login wallpaper prepared earlier on the Desktop to the Caches Folder.

Now, anytime you login or out, you’re presented with your vey own custom login wallpaper.

And that’s all there is to it.

We’ve already shown on the previous episode, how to install and run macOS Sierra on an external SSD.

We’re now going to create an additional partition on the external SSD, in order to dual boot macOS Sierra and El Capitan.

Soooooo, Let's Get Started.

As usual, since we'll be using Disk Utility, make sure you have or made a backup of your system hard drive or drives before proceeding.

Dual Boot macOS Sierra & El Capitan from an External SSD
Continuing on, after inserting the SSD in an available USB socket, open Disk Utility.

Now, click on the SSD header in the sidebar, then click the Partition button shown here.

To create an additional partition, click the plus sign button shown here and then name the  Partition to whatever you like and make sure that the default format is OS X Extended (Journaled), alternatively, to delete the partition simply click the minus button.

Once satisfied with your choice, click the Apply button to create the new partition.

Now, close Disk Utility and simply launch the macOS El Capitan installer and choose to install on the newly created partition, which, in my case,  is named macOS El Capitan SSD.

The remaining installation process, is exactly the same, as was shown in the previous episode.

In summary, after the installation process has finished, El Capitan boots to the Desktop, where, you can optionally set the default startup disk, to that of your Mac system drive after turning on your Mac

Once that’s taken care of, anytime you want to run macOS Sierra or El Capitan from the SSD, simply shutdown the Mac and proceed with the power and Option key combination, to boot to the Startup Manager and click the macOS, on the SSD, that you want to boot to.

In this episode, I’ll be demonstrating, how to install and run macOS Sierra on an external USB 3.0 SSD drive, using the new Disk Utility in OS X El Capitan.

Install and Run macOS Sierra from an External SSD or USB Flash Drive
Soooooo, Let's Get Started.

What you will need:

An Intel Based Mac System.

Downloaded copy of macOS Sierra Installer.

And finally, a fast USB 3.0 Flash or External SSD Drive.

As usual, since we'll be using Disk Utility, make sure you have or made a backup of your system hard drive or drives before proceeding, can't say you’ve not been warned.

Now, with all the basic necessities taken care of, the first thing we'll need to do after inserting the SSD drive in an available USB 3.0 socket, is to open Disk Utility and partition the SSD Drive.

Therefore, after opening Disk Utility, click on the SSD drive in the sidebar, then click the Partition button shown here.

Now, name your Partition to whatever you like and make sure that the format is OS X Extended (Journaled).

Then click the Apply button to format and partition the SSD drive.

After formatting and partitioning the SSD drive, you can close Disk Utility and simply launch the macOS Sierra installer and choose to install Sierra on the SSD drive just formatted and partitioned, as shown here.

I’ll just time lapse the installation process from here, which took about 14 minutes to complete, to point where you begin to select your location.

Once the required login details have been entered, you are brought to the Sierra desktop.

At this point, it’s advisable to change the startup disk order from the SSD drive to your default start up drive of your Mac, which in my case is the Macintosh HD as shown here.

Once that’s taken care of, I’ll just shutdown the Mac and proceed with the power and option key combination to boot to the Startup Manager and click the SSD drive to launch macOS Sierra as shown.

And that’s all there is to it.

Therefore, it’s very important that you’ve done or already have a backup of your important files.

Furthermore, where appropriate, I’ve time-lapse some of the procedures.

From the Disk Utility window, select Macintosh HD, then the Erase Button, shown here.

Make sure the Format is as shown, Mac OS Extended (journaled) and the default Name Macintosh HD (you can change the name if you wish)

Reset Apple Watch Forgotten Passcode and Restore From A Backup

What To Do If Forgotten Apple Watch Passcode and Restore from a Backup.

Learn How To Reset Apple Watch Forgotten Passcode and Restore from a Backup.


TRANSCRIPT:

This is episode 3 from our Apple Watch series.

We’ve already shown in episode 1, what happens if you attempt to enter the wrong passcode 10 times in a row on the Apple Watch.

And from episode 2, how Apple Watch backs up your data data.

In this episode, we’ll show what to do if you’ve forgotten your Apple Watch passcode  and how to restore your Apple Watch from a Backup.

Therefore, if you’ve forgotten your Apple Watch passcode, you basically have two Options.

Option 1, requires that you have your paired iPhone and Apple Watch nearby.

And Option 2, requires you have your Apple Watch and it’s magnetic USB charger, when the iPhone is either turned off or not nearby.

Reset Apple Watch Forgotten Passcode and Restore From A Backup
Time for a Demo. Soooooooo, Let's Get Started.

So, considering Option 1, simply open the Watch app on your iPhone, then tap on General and scroll down and tap Reset.

Now, tap on Erase Apple Watch Content and Settings, then tap Erase All Content and Settings to confirm.

You’ll then be asked to enter your Apple ID password.

After entering your Apple ID password, the process of unpairing your Apple Watch will begin.

I’ll just time-lapse the erasing process from here.

After the unpairing process has finished on your Apple Watch and has mentioned in episode 2, a backup is created on your iPhone.

Now tap your language of choice on the Apple Watch and tap Start pairing on the iPhone, and hold the iPhone over the Apple Watch animation, as shown.

You’re then given the option to Restore from Backup or Set Up as New Apple Watch.

Choose Restore from Backup and select the Backup you want to restore, you’ll then be asked for your Apple ID password.

After entering your Apple ID password, and like before, when setting up a new Apple Watch, you’ll have the option to create a new short or long passcode, choose to unlock your Apple Watch using your iPhone and to set up Apple Pay if required.

Again; I’ll just time-lapse the process from here.

And that concludes Option 1.

Let’s now look at Option 2, where your paired iPhone is not close by or turned off. We’ll consider the case that the iPhone is turned off.

Therefore; with the iPhone turned off, connect the magnetic USB charger cable to the Apple Watch, then press and hold down the side button, shown here.

Now, firmly press and release the Power Off slider, until you see the following.

Then, tap on Erase all content and settings.

I found this to be a bit tricky, took several tries, till I got the hang of it. I'll just time-lapse the erasing process from here.

Once the erase process has finished on the Apple Watch, it’s IMPORTANT to unpair the current Apple Watch shown on the iPhone, once it’s turned back on.

Therefore, with the iPhone turned back on, simply open the Watch app and tap on the Apple Watch icon. Then, tap on the “i” icon, shown here and select unpair.

Once the unpairing has finished, follow the same process as was done in Options 1 when selecting your language of choice from the Apple Watch and restoring from a Backup.

And that’s all there is to it,
