Restore Missing OS X Features On New Macs [Video How-To]



After buying a new 27″ iMac last week, I was surprised to find a few missing features that I’ve been accustomed to in OS X Lion on other machines, including the removal of many desktop wallpapers. In this video, I’ll show you how to get back features in OS X Lion that you may be missing on a new Mac.

    I just p a i d $21.87 for an i P a d 2-64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasonîc Lumîx GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS.I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.
    Here is the website we use to get it all from,

    hi, could you do a video on how to change the screen capture file format from png to jpg? when i had snow leopard, there was a fix for it by using terminal, but i don’t think that command line works for lion anymore. i’d appreciate it a lot! thanks for the videos! i think they’re interesting to watch.

    I have the Apps disk that came with my 2009 iMac, could I use that to install iDVD on a new Mac?

    Are you saying that Lion shipped on a new Mac is different to the retail install copy or is it just that this old stuff gets left behind from Snow Leopard on an upgrade. There is a difference.

    Screen Sharing. It’s built in.

    Probably not, actually – the discs are locked to only install software on the machine they were bundled with. I believe it’s based on your Mac’s model ID.
