EasyFind

EasyFind is a free app for Mac made by the people who make DevonThink. I’ve been using it for a long time and it is very good at what it does. for finding files, folders, and their contents. It digs deeper than the built in Mac app Spotlight. As of writing it is on version 5.0.2, and requires OS X El Capitan or later.

Apple Mail Not Showing Dock Unread Count

Suddenly, the Apple Mail icon in the dock was not longer showing unread items as a number in white against a red background. I wonder whether I inadvertently turned something off.

To get it back, go to Apple / Notifications, and choose Apple menu > System Settings, then click Notifications in the sidebar.

Choose which mailboxes to include in the count of unread messages in the red circle, called a badge, that’s shown on the Mail icon in the Dock. In my case I want the unread messages from all the email accounts in Apple Mail.

Then activate the unread count, but note this important caveat. The count appears only if “Badge app icon” is selected for Mail in Notifications settings.
