If your Mac is feeling sluggish when booting or starting up it’s probably a result of a few things: a bloated login item list, too many windows being restored, a super slow external drive that takes forever to be accessed, or even just the general hard disk speed. The good news is that most of these are very quick to fix, so follow along and you’ll be starting up a Mac quicker in no time at all.
A new beta of Apple’s pre-release Mountain Lion 10.8 OS is now available for developers. Build 12A154q is the second preview that Apple has released of this new operating system, expected to debut sometime this Summer.
Release notes and update details are waiting for you behind the developer firewall. The preview is currently restricted to paid members of Apple’s Mac developer program.
So you updated your Mac to the latest version of Apple’s Operating System lineup OS X Lion, and the first thing you probably noticed (at least I did) was that scrolling in windows was reversed, or as Apple calls it…”natural.” Essentially dragging up moves the window down, as if you had a long piece of paper on the desk in front of you, you grabbed it with two fingers and pushed up it would move the paper up thus showing you whats below the curent viewing space. This maybe something some of you like, but for the rest of you its a simple process to change and go back to the way it was in Snow Leopard.
Head over to System Preferences, Trackpad, Scroll & Zoom. Uncheck the “Scroll direction: natural” This will put you back to the way it was in Snow Leopard and keep some of us sane.
