    I was viewing 17 hidden features and found that after updating to Ventura the clock/timer option does not seem to be available to my computer. My computer is 5 years old, did my download go bad or was my download limited because I have an older computer? Do you have any suggestions?

    Evelyn: Do you mean the Clock app? It should be there. Doesn't matter the age of the Mac, if it can run Ventura you should have the Clock app.

    Thanks Gary. I had unchecked apps in my search parameters and once I realized this I corrected this and found the clock app. Memory issues, mine not the computers. :)

    Thanks Gary. Finally...can select multiple conversations in Messages, long time coming in my opinion.

    Gary: quick follow up to my comment about the Delete Conversation feature. Any idea why when you select multiple conversations to delete them, the Delete option is greyed out in the menu? I noticed that when looked to see if there was a keyboard shortcut associated with this action. Thx

    nick: It isn't for me. I can select multiple conversations and then choose Conversation, Delete Conversation.

    My mistake..I looked under Edit where the Delete command is greyed out. should have looked under Conversations, although still no keyboard shortcut associated with it, would have thought the Delete button would be the logical choice :)

    Nice work Gary. I have many emails stored in a lot of folders in On My Mac. I search these regularly, but in Ventura now, my searches are only finding Emails, Attachments or Subjects. NO individual Mailboxes. I haven't seen this question anywhere else.

    Brad: So you are saying that the search feature doesn't include mailboxes anymore? (I didn't realize it did before, but maybe because I don't ever use them). I guess if it doesn't, it doesn't.

    In Ventura, can I have landscape and portrait layouts within the same document?

    Tugrul: What type of document? Do you mean in Pages? No, Pages (a separate app, not part of Ventura) doesn't have that. But you can make it happen by combining things in Preview afterward.

    Hi Gary, running Ventura on my 24" iMac &iOS 16.1 iPhone 10s. Since Ventura connecting 10s through thunderbolt port using new USB-C cable that came with Mac, asked each time to approve the mac on the phone which seems strange. I can backup the phone to the mac but have to restart the mac each time for the phone to charge more than 1-2% then it stops charging. Other devices charge fine with this same cord. Phone charges well from wall outlet. I am wondering if this is a bug? Advice? Thx

    Hi again Gary, I also notice using spotlight to bring up a shortcut like in your video that it doesn't work for me, even though I have Apps selected in Siri & Spotlight settings. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks for all you do.

    Kathy: Not sure why it isn't working for you. Did you wait a while for Spotlight to finish searching? Maybe try some other Shortcut names as well.

    Kathy: Not sure why the phone is having issues. Charging is always better from a power outlet anyway, so just use that.
