What Is Missing In macOS Mojave?

While macOS Mojave brings lots of great new features, it also retires some. The Mail stationery templates are gone. Cover Flow view has been replaced with Gallery View in the Finder. Integration with Facebook and other social networks is gone, most likely for privacy reasons. Back to My Mac has been retired, but all sharing functions like Screen Sharing and File Sharing remain. Warnings that 32-bit apps will soon no longer work with macOS are just warnings, however. Those old apps still work in Mojave.

    Any alternatives to Share Menu in Safari?

    Osni: Can you be more specific? What is wrong with the current Share Menu (I assume you mean File, Share or the Share button)? What is it not doing that you want it to do?

    Screen Share may be present but only allows discovery of Macs on LAN, where BTMM also allowed discovery of Macs (w/ same iCloud credentials) via WAN / Internet, which is sorely missed. There are third party Remote Login ‘servers’ that can be run to sort of resolve this but I haven’t found one that supports SS via WAN and is overall much less satisfactory.

    for rebg: You can use a service like the free dyn dynamic dns client which runs on your mac in the background and gives it a name. Then when you need to screen share it, it will be yourname.homends.org or something you pick.

    On Mojave audio over HDMI on my Macpro 5,1(flashed from a 4,1) is broken, although this worked flawlessly on High Sierra. I have been reporting this on the betas for months.

    Do I have to update to Mojave? I’m new to Macs and still getting used to High Sierra.

    Catherine: You don’t have to do anything. But Mojave is the latest operating system. And it is free. Why not?

    I just spent about 45 minutes looking for those birthday, etc. cards in Mojave. One search on Google and the FIRST question answered by you is that one. Many thanks to you for saving me more time. (Of course Apple wouldn’t tell me and their help, well it wasn’t). Many happy faces to you.

    Hi Gary,
    What is the best way to share photos from our Photos app to Facebook from MacBook Pro?
    Many thanks!

    Sue: I would just go to Facebook in your browser, create the post there as normal, then choose to add photos. On the left side of the “open” dialog when you go to select a photo, choose the Media/Photos option. See https://macmost.com/choosing-photos-to-upload.html

    How to get back the Mission Control in OS Mojave? It is something that I use all the time and I do miss it!
    Thank you for letting me know.

    Pavla: Mission Control hasn’t changed with Mojave. You activate it the same way as before, either with the F-key on the keyboard, or Control+Up. Check to make sure you haven’t changed your shortcut settings in System Preferences, Mission Control.

    had new MacBookPro with ElCapitan (and a problem, long story), wiped clean at Apple Genius Bar and they then clean installed Mojave. I can not find the “Facebook” option on the drop-down share menu in photos, which was on my previous computer with High Sierra. It was easier to see and select from the larger photos in the photos app, rather than selecting a photo when on Facebook. Any fix for this, or an extension? Thank you for your help!

    Gudrun: There are a lot of ways to do it. You can still browse through Photos to find the images you want, then when you go to select a photo on Facebook, drag and drop from Photos into that file selection window. Personally, I like to use the Favorites designation to show which photos I want to use, then in Facebook I go to select the photo, click on Media, Photos on the left, go to Favorites, and then my photos are right there. Then I remove them from Favorites when done or before I need to do it with some new photos. Also, not that pressing the spacebar while browsing Media, Photos to select a photo will show you a larger version of the selected photo.
