If you work primarily from a Mac, there might be times when you need a piece of software that is only available on Windows, so instead of buying a new separate PC, here’s how you can run Windows apps on your Mac.
Most of us are probably familiar with Apple’s Mac computers which currently run on Intel. Some of you might even be familiar with the fact that before the move to Intel, Apple’s Mac computers ran on the PowerPC architecture, but did you know that even before that, Apple’s Mac computers were powered by Motorola’s CPUs?
With Apple planning to transition their Mac computers over to a custom ARM-based silicon, we have to wonder if other companies could be planning to do something similar. It does seem like a pretty good opportunity, and according to a report from SamMobile, it seems that Samsung could be planning something similar of their own.
A couple of times a year, Microsoft releases new updates to Windows 10 that introduces new features to the operating system. This is great as it helps keep the operating system fresh, but it seems that the company could be considering scaling back on its feature updates to just once a year.
Microsoft is working on a new version of Windows 10 in the form of Windows 10X. So the question is, when will the new version be released? If you were hoping to see it by the end of 2020, you might be disappointed because according to a report from ZDNet, it seems that Windows 10X will only be arriving in the spring of 2021.
Last year during WWDC 2019, Apple announced that for macOS, they would be doing away with iTunes. Instead, the company opted to split up various aspects of iTunes into its own dedicated apps, like a standalone app for Apple Music and so on. However, back then Apple suggested that Windows users might have to wait.
Ever since Microsoft introduced Windows 95 back in 1995, about 25 years ago, the Start Menu has become more or less the trademark of the operating system. It is where shortcuts to apps are kept, along with access to other system settings and so on. Over the years, it has undergone changes in its design, and it looks like we can look forward to a redesign soon.
Updates are supposed to be good things. They’re supposed to introduce fixes for problems, close security vulnerabilities, introduce new features, and improve on existing ones. But it seems that Microsoft’s Windows updates have been rather problematic, and the latest June update for Windows 10 is one of them.
While Apple’s macOS does certain things great, there are certain apps that users need to use that simply aren’t available for Mac. As a result, they will need to use Boot Camp or another virtualization software like Parallels. Unfortunately, it seems that Boot Camp will not be supported by Apple’s upcoming ARM-based Mac computers.
One of the features integrated into macOS is Boot Camp. This effectively allows users to run Windows apps on their Mac computers by booting their computers into Windows, giving users the best of both worlds, so to speak. Unfortunately, it seems that in the future, Apple’s Mac computers may no longer support it.
Firewalls are designed to help protect our computers from certain unwanted intrusions. However, there are times when it might actually hinder how we want to use our computer, and this is why turning it off can sometimes help.
One of the main criticisms of Google’s Chrome browser is that it is a memory hog. While the browser is fantastic and the integration of your Google account makes it a breeze to use, it can be quite demanding in terms of memory which can affect users who are using less powerful computers with less RAM.
Printing is pretty much a basic function that all computers should be capable of doing, but it seems that Microsoft might have broken the print functionality for Windows 10 computers in a recent update that has caused users all kinds of issues when trying to print from their computers.
Google’s Chrome OS platform runs either apps designed for Chrome OS, or in recent years, even Android apps. However, the good news for Chrome OS users is that in the future, you will soon be able to run Windows applications on Chrome OS. This is thanks to a partnership between Google and Parallels.
