Make A Disk Image On A Mac

The nice thing about disk images is that you can encrypt them and password protect them.

First make your file or files and pop them in a folder. Then go to Disk Utility (it’s in the Utilities folder in Applications) and then find ‘Files’ in the top line, and choose ‘new image/image from folder.’ Find the folder you want to use and give it a name or keep the one that comes up. Then choose an encryption level and make a password. That’s it. The file will be saved as a .dmg.

If you lose the password you will not be able to recover it from anywhere.

M1 MacBook Pro Tiny Font

The downside of the high pixel count of the M1 MacBook Pro 16″ is the size of the font in the Apple Mail sidebar, the Safari sidebar and Safari Favourites Bar.

To increase the font size in the main body of Mail is easy enough, but how to increase the font size of the sidebar? The answer is System Preferences > General > Sidebar icon size: Large.

That does not increase the font size of the sidebar or the favourites bar in Safari, however.

I will add to this post as and when someone tells me how to do it.
