Here’s a list of some less popular open-source Mac apps you should try. You may be surprised by how useful they can be.
1. IINA

5 Ways to Turn Any Website Into a Desktop Mac App

No matter how good a web app is, sometimes you wish you could have it on your Mac desktop. That’s especially true when it comes to the apps (and websites) you use often.
Sure, if the app has a macOS version, you can install that. But if it doesn’t, or if the desktop client is poorly made, what are your options?
We’ve lined up five apps that can turn websites into Mac apps.
1. Fluid
For a long time, Fluid was really the only app that let you turn web apps into real Mac apps. Now it has some competition, but Fluid continues to do its job well. It even gained a spot on our list of must-have apps for users who spend all day on a Mac.
After you install Fluid, creating a new desktop app is straightforward. First, grab the URL of the website you want to turn into a Mac app and paste it into Fluid. Next, type in a name for your new desktop app.
If you want to throw in a custom icon for the app, you can add that too. (By default, Fluid uses the source website’s favicon). Now hit the Crea..

How to Check Your Mac’s Memory for Problems

Random Access Memory (RAM) is a vital component of any computer. When you launch an app on your Mac, it requires a portion of your available memory to run. Serious problems can arise if there are problems with your computer’s memory.
Today we’ll look at how to find out how much memory you have, what’s using it, and how you can perform thorough testing to ensure it’s working correctly. If you recently installed a new stick of RAM and you’re encountering problems, testing is a vital part of troubleshooting your issue.
Find Out How Much Memory You Have To find out how much memory your Mac has, click on the Apple logo in the top-left corner of your screen and select About This Mac. On the Overview tab, the Memory line lists the amount of RAM in GB, the speed of the RAM in MHz, and the generation of double data rate (DDR) you’re currently using.

6 Fun Ways to Give Your Mac a Retro Look

If you like to relive the good old days, you might enjoy the idea of making your Mac look retro. You can do that from the outside with a new decal or sticker, but what about the inside? That’s easy too!
With the following six tips, you’ll soon have macOS looking as good as old.
Note: Our tips focus on generic changes, not specifically those to match older macOS versions.
1. Paint the Screen Old
Computers of the past had either neon colors or, at the other extreme, gray and similar dull colors. You can achieve either effect on your Mac with a few tweaks.
To go gray, start by changing the theme for windows, menus, buttons, etc. from System Preferences > General. Select Graphite from the Appearance dropdown menu there.
You can also select Graphite from the Highlight menu to change the color of highlighted text from blue to a plain gray.

You’ll notice that the Graphite theme doesn’t affect app and folder icons. If you want to dull those down as well, you can do that from System Pr..

4 Practical Ways to Use Your Mac’s Image Capture App

macOS has some really great pre-installed apps, but not all of them are well-known. The Image Capture app is a case in point. If you’ve ignored it so far, it might be time to fix that and see how useful Image Capture can be.
Let’s explore four common tasks this modest app helps you perform.
1. Import or Delete Photos From External Devices Yes, you can import photos from iOS devices, cameras, or SD cards to your Mac with iTunes or Photos. But if you’re having trouble with these apps or if you would prefer an app with a simpler interface, try Image Capture. It works with videos too.
After you plug the source device into your Mac and open the Image Capture app, you can:
Import Photos Directly to a Folder First, use the Import To dropdown menu to specify the Finder folder where you want the imported photos to show up.

Next, decide if you want Image Capture to automatically delete photos from the connected device after import.
If yes, select the Delete after import checkbox in the si..

How to See Which Mac Apps Have Access to Your Data

There are plenty of ways to protect your privacy, from stopping apps from accessing location data to denying apps access to your contacts. As a Mac user, you have a few handy options for further securing your Mac laptop or computer.

Open System Preferences and go to Security & Privacy. Click on the Privacy tab. You’ll see six categories of data Mac apps can access: location information, contacts, calendars, reminders, photos, and Mac analytics. There’s also an Accessibility tab listing apps you have allowed to control your computer. Click on each category to see which apps have access to your data.
