Trying out something I learn off a Youtube tutorial by Simon Ubsdell.
Last week I found out my iPhone 6S was part of a group of phones manufactured between September – October 2015 with a faulty battery which caused the phone to shutoff. (iPhone 6s Program for Unexpected Shutdown Issues). My phone didn’t have that problem. Instead, the battery would drain quickly and I would need the charger around 2:00PM. I did remove some of the applications that might have drained the battery so quickly, and was planning on doing a reset of the phone during Christmas season. However, a free replacement battery is usually a good thing.
I made my appointment for last Saturday. The guy assigned to me from the Genius Bar ran diagnostics and asked some questions about my phone and why I thought the battery needed to be replaced. He told me my battery had a maximum capacity of 84% after 14 months of use. We verified the phone’s serial number and placed an order for a new battery. Now we wait…
At work, there are several clients who are thinking about purchasing a new iPhone 5S. I was amazed how many wanted to get a new iPhone in Champagne/White vs White/Silver and Black/Slate. Most of everyone I’ve talked to are looking forward to a bump up in storage from 16GB to 32GB (for entry models).
Over the last 18 months, I’ve been using my iMac as my main computer. I configured multiple Desktops (spaces) changed the screensaver, installed programs, games (Diablo 3 and Steam for Team Fortress 2). Basically making it my own, just like I do with Windows and Linux.
So one day I was looking at other features of Finder, and decided to change the window color from white to green for the Documents folder. You can do this by clicking the gear icon and Show View Options. After I goofed with the colors, I reset it back to white. then I noticed I can add a picture to the background. I copied over a jack-o-lanter picture I found last year and there was the small picture I copied. Then I decided to change the Arrange by from None to Name and clicked the Use as Defaults. I closed the window and didn’t think anything of it for a week.
When I came back a week later, I noticed some of my Finder windows had the jack-o-lanter as the wallpaper. I went through the process to remove the wallpaper, but noticed I could not change the wallpaper. It was stuck with the jack-o-lantern. After some searching on Google, I found a post by Pigstick on mac-forums.com which explained how undo what I did.
Change the Arrange by to None, then you can reset the background to any color or change the picture. Don’t forget to click the Use as Defaults button.
