How to Rename Tags on Mac

How to edit and rename tags on the Mac

If you use the Tags feature to tag files and folders on the Mac you may find it helpful to know that you can edit and rename tags to be more descriptive or to better suit your purposes for those tags.

For example, perhaps you want to rename some tags to be used as indicator of priority, so rather than having a tag simply named “Red” or “Blue” you could rename those tags to be “Urgent” and “Low Priority”. Or perhaps you’d like tags named something like “Personal”, “Family”, and “Work”, or to be project specific, or anything of that sort. Renaming tags on the Mac is easy, as you’ll see.

How to Stop FaceTime Opening Automatically on Mac

Sep 7, 2019 - Leave a Comment

FaceTime on Mac

Some Mac users may be aiming to turn off FaceTime because they have noticed the app launches itself automatically. Some have even noticed that FaceTime opens itself automatically on boot when the computer restarts or on system startup.

Sometimes this happens because of saved states and the user left FaceTime open before rebooting the Mac, but other times it appears to be a bug or issue with the FaceTime plist file and in those situations removing that preference file can often remedy the issue.

Additionally, some FaceTime features make the app open automatically when an inbound FaceTime call is being received on the Mac, and that can be addressed too.
