    Another thing missing from Monterey (at least with a MBP 14" with M1Pro) is a functional Time Machine. The MANY people who experience a non-functional Time Machine were hoping Monterey 12.1 would fix the issue, but it hasn't. And of course, not every one has this problem, although no one can identify why it affects some and not others. But that's what I want from Monterey--a functional Time Machine.

    B.A.: Yes, that's not a missing function, but a bug I guess some people are having. No problems with Time Machine here. Have you tried wiping the drive and starting fresh?

    Hi Gary. Wiped drive. Re-installed Monterey 12.1 Tried with 2 SSDs and 2 HDs. Tried in Safe Mode etc. Working with Apple senior tech; he's stumped and sending to Apple Engineers. Apple Discussion Boards and MacRumors show not just me. Must be some weird thing just affecting some, and maybe only M1Pro/M1Max. It'll work out. Monterey is pretty cool regardless.

    Thanks! It was the news on UNIVERSAL CONTROL that I was waiting [with baited breath] for. :D

    hey Gary, if I use the "hide my email" option, for example when I go on a website and don't wanna give them my real email address, is the email address that the OS generate an alias for mine, which means I would still get emails from the site, or is it a non-existent email address? thx

    nick: It isn't an alias (that's something else). But you will get email sent TO that email address, yes.
