    Any idea how to get logged into the new Apple ID feature? it asks me for my Apple iCloud password, then asks for my computer’s password which it says will be used to access the KeyChain and log me into other sites. After entering both passwords, they appear to be accepted. But when I go back to System Preferences, i get the same red bubble displaying the No. 1 over the Apple ID icon, and it has me go through the same process all over again. I’ve gone thru this more than a dozen times already…

    Phil: I’ve read about some people having this issue (it isn’t new to Catalina). One suggestion was to simply log out of iCloud and then back in.

    Hello Gary: Any chance you’ll touch the topic of installing other OSes besides Windows in Bootcamp in Catalina, specifically troubleshooting new macs with ‘hypersensitive’ security. TIA

    Carlos: No plans to cover that, no. Sorry. Maybe think about using Parallels or another VM instead of bootcamp for that. Or, simply using an external bootable drive.

    With Hover Text enabled, if you quickly tap Command three times you will lock Hover Text on, tap Command three times again to toggle Hover Text to unlock.

    So trying to edit a video in imovies, and I am trying to set the General preferences to show advanced tools but I can’t seem to get this menu on Catalina. Any help out there?

    Rachel: Advanced tools? I think you may be referring to the old Advanced Tools setting in iMovie. That was removed years ago and the advanced tools are simply always there now.
