I have 2 utilities folders on my Mac – can I delete one
After about 1 1:2 hrs on my new MacBook air I’ve managed to get the icons on the bottom , sign in to a few things but unable to transfer stuff from my old MacBook which means I really can’t use my new laptop now. I’ll have to search my village for someone who knows how to work it. I won’t hold my breath as everyone is over 56. I am 81 and been using computers for 50 years and my MacBook for 10 but can’t set up the new one. DEFINITELY age discrimination. Where I bought it couldn’t do it either. Why does it have to be so blinking COMPLICATED!!
