    1. How to Download a Full macOS High Sierra Installer App

      Teaser Paragraph:
      Many Mac users who are attempting to download macOS High Sierra from the Mac App Store will find that a small 19 MB version of “Install macOS High Sierra.app” downloads to the /Applications folder of the target Mac, rather than the complete 5.2 GB Installer application for macOS High Sierra. This is annoying because it prevents a single download from being used on multiple computers, plus the small installer requires an internet connection during usage to download the rest of the High Sierra update files. Additionally, the tiny 19 MB incomplete installer prevents users from being able to create a macOS High Sierra USB installer drive or other custom update options available through the command line, like skipping the APFS update .This tutorial will show you a workaround trick that allows Mac users to download the full macOS High Sierra “Install macOS High Sierra.app” file at 5.2 GB with the complete installer tool set and all dmg files and associated Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/ tools, rather than the tiny incomplete truncated installer at 19 MB.

    3. How to Use Split View in Full Screen with OS X El Capitan

      Teaser Paragraph:
      Split View is a new feature in OS X El Capitan which allows you to take two apps into full screen together, placing them split side-by-side. For example, you could take a Safari window into full screen mode and then split the fullscreen with another app, like Pages. Split View sizes the windows automatically for any screen size, so you don?t have to drag them to accommodate the display, and it?s quite easy to use once you learn how to access and use the split screen feature on the Mac.

    6. Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan gets useful new features and thoughtful refinements (hands-on)

      Teaser Paragraph:
      For the past week I've been using a demo version of Apple's latest Mac OS, El Capitan and so far, I like what I've seen. While the changes are mostly refinements to what we got in Yosemite -- last year's OS X update -- there are a few brand new features I've taken a strong liking to. The split window addition in particular has me excited for the full release.

    7. OS X El Capitan System Requirements & Compatible Mac List

      Teaser Paragraph:
      With an emphasis on performance and reliability, OS X El Capitan is expected to be a great system software update for Mac users. Of course, updating to the next version of Mac OS X will only be possible if the Mac hardware supports the new version. Fortunately for those wanting to update to OS X El Capitan, the system requirements are quite forgiving, and basically if your Mac can run OS X Yosemite or OS X Mavericks, it will almost certainly be able to run OS X El Capitan as well.

    8. How to Copy an ISO to a USB Drive from Mac OS X with dd

      Teaser Paragraph:
      If you have downloaded an ISO image of another operating system, say Ubuntu Linux or Windows 10, and you wish to turn that ISO image file into a bootable USB installer drive using a USB flash drive or USB key, you?ll find the most reliable way to copy or ?burn? the ISO to that target USB volume is by turning to the command line of Mac OS X. There are alternative solutions, but this command line approach using dd requires no third party downloads, it is quite fast, and is consistently reliable in producing bootable volumes out of ISO files.
