Let me first say, am I the only one who has a terrible time figuring out where the mac equivalent of the control panel is? Every. Time. On the other hand, it means I feel very accomplished after just locating it, and anything I manage on top of that makes me feel like a technological wizard, which is kind of fun.
Also, I was perfectly happy with Snow Leopard! Snow leopards are adorable and have floofy tails; it was a joy to have my operating system share their name. But once my phone pestered me into an update, it stopped talking to iphoto. And itunes. And that was sort of a problem.
Google stepped in and suggested updating itunes. Ah ha, except I had already thought of that — itunes claimed I had the most current version, 11.whatever. Not so, the internet forums replied; the most current version is 12.something-or-other.
Which led down the rabbit hole of updating Snow Leopard to El Capitan, which took a while, and then itunes let me get *that* update, and lo, the phone-computer schism was ended.
Also, my trackpad was reversed. Why, apple, why? I’ve had this computer for a long time; don’t go turning it into a stranger!
And so I carefully made my way to the
control panel system preferences, and TURNED THAT TRACKPAD THING OFF. Everything is much better now. The end.
