Crap. When you start a video with a critique of the horrible notifications and then don't have a fix in a video entitled "How to fix Big Sur". Oh well, it was a great video.

I have been using the Mac OS since 1984. Point and click. When Windos showed up on the PC i was happy. But my immediate supervisor dropped out of Windows into DOS to do anything. So please do not make us go back to the DOS way of doing things.Redo this using only point and click!!!

Hi. I tried the menu colour fix and it worked. However only the first desktop has the white menu bar. All of the others are clearly still based on the wallpaper colour, even though the change wallpaper screen says it is using the modified one. Even worse, when I added more desktops they were white text on the wallpaper based colour, which made it impossible to read. They still said it was the modified wallpaper. I had to change back to the original wallpaper for now. Do I need to rerun the command on each desktop?

I ran Terminal and reran the command on each desktop. Of course you can up arrow to repeat the command again each time without needing to retype it

HHHEEELLLPPP my back up screwed up so when I dragged my own folders over from backup 99% of them weren’t locked anyway but they are now including every file in the folders but if I get info and admin unlock, it then relocks when you go on the file again and it asked for password its probably the most annoying thing atm… I can fix the folders by making new ones but the files. Theres no longer Apply To All in Get Info... BiIg Sur is so shit I'm on a 2019 Mac Pro. can you help me please :)

I think that's a matter of opinion. The response example looked the same from Catalina to Big Sur. Just visually different but usability was exactly the same.

After update Imac software to be version 11.2, the finder can not find any files I am looking for (HD & dropbox) and it only can find the files in external hard drive, also the funny things is I can find the files after the update software. Do you know how to fix that problem on version 11.2?

go to system preferences select apple id logo top right select icloud, uncheck the NEWS item so it is not "background updated", otherwise its dragging performance down. That alone has speeded up all the applications to similar performance as before!

how do you update ur MacBook? I have been trying to update mine but it doesn’t work. it says "failed" or " the time has run out". I look for many youtube videos for this problem I have and nothing. Also, I went to the App Store and search macOS Big Sur and I press Get and it didn’t work. it ends up saying I don’t have this update even tho I do have it but if I press update now it's gonna say "failed".

I thought I was upgrading my IMac with Big Sur, but after installing it my IMac runs considerably slower. In fact, while playing Factorio which is a graphically intense program, it is so slow that the game hiccups constantly. I originally had Catalina install and the game was fantastic. Is there any configuration that I can change or do I need to go back to Catalina?

The rounded corners, particularly on the menu bar, are very reminiscent of Mac OS X 10.4 and below. Although, on Mac OS 9, Macs with built-in LCDs (instead of CRTs) had rectangular menu bars. I don't know which ones exactly had that, but it was a nice touch because it would help to reduce burn-in. That reminds me: *You probably don't want to round your display's corners* The black pixels will cause burn-in in the corners if you use this for extended periods of time. Once we're using OLED or some other display technology, then having constant black will be a positive. But we aren't there yet on Macs.

Do you have a fix for my 2015 MacBook Pro that cause my laptop to cool efficiently again? Ever since I upgraded my fans constantly run. It was never like this on previous versions. Kernal tasks is using 30% or more of my cpu since the update and it’s frustrating.

Hey there, I have one major problem with Big Sur: The finder icon. I mean, it’s like putting the Apple logo itself in an iOS rounded box. The macOS created iOS, not the opposite, and it feels wrong. However, I couldn’t find a way to change that, unlike Catalina where you could have changed every icon. Can you find a solution for me?

Well ChangeMenuBar Color doesn't work for me because I have a custom wallpaper. apparently it requires one of the default wallpapers. I get this error : "Cannot read the currently set macOS wallpaper. Try providing a specific wallpaper as a parameter instead.

I hope someday someone will create an app to get any OS-Level-look on our macs. Big Sur functionality with "Snow Leopard" look ... LMBO.

You can add a keystroke to open a folder in Terminal: Sys Prefs > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Services > Files and Folders. Plus, if you check the box to the left of the entry for "New Terminal at Folder" it will appear in the gear menu and contextual menu. No need for extra apps or using the menu bar.

Annoying you have to get utilities and fix basic GUI issues Apple got wrong. Menu bar is hard to see (thanks for the fix), wire frame Finder sidebar icons hard to see on my 2014 15" Macbook Pro, default wall paper is sickly, you can change ot but it's the same default on the logon screen. And it's slow. I ran back to Catalina begging forgivness!
