How to Upgrade Yosemite – to El Capitan

Another computer question surfaces in the world order. This time an individual wanted to upgrade the operating system on their Macintosh computer. The initial original question quoted verbatim is below.

How do I upgrade my Mac to OS 10.12?

This individual owned a Apple Macintosh computer with Macintosh operating system 10.11.6 El Capitan installed. They needed to upgrade their Macintosh computer operating system to comply with the download and attempted install of Turbo Tax software. This is a common occurrence with tax software.

Depending on the brand, many new tax software releases require you to upgrade your operating system. At this time Turbo Tax required Apple Macintosh operating system 10.12 Sierra in order to work.

You can upgrade via the Apple Macintosh Application Store. Also, you can use the iTunes link below. You will need your Macintosh administrator account password and Apple identification to upgrade.

This individual then claimed that their Apple Macintosh computer was not compatible with Apple Macintosh 10.14 Mojave operating system. You can try this link below.

Also, you can check out the full Apple Macintosh Sierra 10.12 installation instructions. This individual then had forgotten their Apple Macintosh administrator password. If you forget your Apple Macintosh administrator password, there are numerous ways to reset it.

However, you will need some technical skills, which according to my experiences, many Apple endusers lack basic computing skills. This is an excellent time to lecture. You should always know your Apple Macintosh administrator password.

In this day and age what with the Internet, there are no excuses to remain so ignorant of such basic computer skills. Also, you should always know your Apple Identification password. Without either of these passwords, you are fucked, when it comes to being able to upgrade your Apple Macintosh operating system.

Luckily, the Apple Macintosh operating system has some different ways to potentially reset it. However, I would never use this type of feature like a crutch.

Logitech C920 Webcam Mac – Mojave Compatible

Another computer issue in the world order. This time an individual had a question about Macintosh computers and webcam compatibility. Here is the original initial question verbatim below.

I need help getting my new Logitech C920 web cam to work.

This individual was using a Apple Macintosh mini computer with Apple Macintosh Mojave 10.14 operating system installed. They had purchased an application from the Apple Applicatin store called “Web Cam Settings”. What a fucking waste of money.

Anyways, they had watched another Youtube video to try and help them install the Logitech C920 on their Apple Macintosh mini computer with Apple Macintosh Mojave 10.14 operating system installed. This is what solved this conundrum.

You can download and install the webcam software from the following link.

They were then able to use their Logitech C920 webcam with their Apple Macintosh mini computer. When it comes to Logitech web cameras and Apple Macintosh computers, it can become a crap shoot. It really depends on the exact model of Logitech web camera you have.

Also, important is what Apple Macintosh operating system you are using. You do NOT necessarily want to assume that your Logitech web camera will work with your Apple Macintosh computer. Also, you do NOT want to necessarily assume that the operating system you are using on your Apple Macintosh computer will be compatible with your Logitech web camera.

You could always first find out what web camera model you have or wish to purchase. Then find out the exact operating system you are using. This example this individual was using Apple Macintosh 10.14 Mojave.

Then you want to verify on Logitech’s website whether or not your Logitech web camera will work or not. Sometimes there will be a software download available. However, depending on the exact operating system and Logitech we camera model, there may NOT be any software download available for your Apple Macintosh computer.

Also, you want to first install the software onto your Macintosh computer. Then once that is accomplished successfully, you connect the web camera to a Universal Serial Bus cable on your Macintosh computer. Finally, you open up a video software application similar to Facetime, Skype, etc. to test your web camera.

Dell Latitude E5530 Factory Restore

Another computer question from a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This one deals with factory restoring a Dell computer. The question is quoted verbatim below.

Hi, I have a Dell Latitude E5530. I want to sell it so want to remove any possible way it links to me. How do I factory reset it or what do you recommend I do.

This individual was using a Dell Latitude E5530 with Microsoft Windows 10 operating system installed. You can wipe all your data and reinstall Windows 10 with “Reset this PC”. You can perform a “Reset this PC”.

You will have two options. One will allow you to keep all your personal data, but your applications will get removed. The second option will remove all your personal data and applications.

Follow the instructions below if you want to perform a “Reset this PC”. Left click the Windows 10 start menu button. Click on the “Settings” gear icon.

Then choose “Update & Security”. Now choose “Recovery” then select “Reset this PC”. Click on “Get Started” and choose an option.

Also, you can type in reset this PC into a Cortana search box. Cortana search icon is a round circle or globe icon usually in the lower left corner near the Microsoft Windows 10 start menu button. Reset this PC will remove all personal data, applications, and settings.

The same version of Microsoft Windows 10 you had when you purchased your computer will then reinstall. Also, only applications that were installed in Microsoft Windows 10 well reinstall. This is a relatively quick and easy way to wipe everything from your computer.

If you want to start over with Microsoft Windows 10, sell your computer, or give it away, then this allows you to wipe your computer and reinstall Microsoft Windows 10 with essentially one command.
