I am having problems connecting my iPad to my MacBook. Can you give me step by step instructions, so I can make sure I am doing it correctly?

My MacBook is connected to the internet using a "air card" through the USB slot, and I did select "Internet Share" with the "Share" icon in systems. I named my network and the iPad sees it, but for some reason is not connected. I also selected no security, and I would think it would connect, but it does not.

Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.

Often times, setting up Internet Connection Sharing is difficult to setup.

May I ask, if I can remote into your system with our temporary remote application fix this for sure?

Yes, feel free to do so

Thank you.


Please, click the following link and allow the remote app to run:

Then on that page click the big green button on the bottom of the page that says, "I agree, Run RemoteDesktop".

Please, click the following link and allow the remote app to run:

Are you having any problems with running that remote application after it is downloaded?

Which Internet browser are you currently using (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, or something of the like)?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I am running Safari, but I have FireFox and Chrome of you suggest another.

Thank you for the update.

Please, try again in Safari.

Open the Downloads window, double click the Elsinore item in the list, and allow it to run.

How do I open "Downloads" window?

In Safari, in the top menu bar, click Windows > Downloads.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

When I tap on the Safari at top left I see a pull down window listing:


About Safari

Safari Extensions


Private Browsing and so on....


I do not see Windows or Downloads


To the right, do you see all of the other items in the Menu?

All the way to the right on the top (2nd from the right) click Windows > Downloads.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I see "Windows" which is just to the left of "Help", but when I click on "Windows" I only see minimize, zoom and so on, but no "Download"

Let's try another option.

I have another question regarding my Mac. The mail of all my past emails is using a large amount of storage keeping the 50,000 emails. Can I delete what is in my computer, and not effect my actual emails stored with AOL and Yahoo? I need them all to reference if needed.


MacKeeper says it is using up 7.5 gb of storage in my computer.

The policy of the site is that I cannot really work on problems not related to the initial problem. If you wish, you can rate this question and then open a new one at:

The answer to your question is not a simple one. I would need a lot more information regarding your account and the application that you use.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I monitor my emails with the "mail" program with the Mac. I have 1 AOL account, and 3 Yahoo that I monitor for business mostly. I read the emails and then leave them in the inbox as read. I do not trash any if they may be needed to look at again, years to come from now. I have been doing this since the internet was available over 25 years ago.


Side note, I bought one of the first Mac computers in Fairfax Virginia when their first store opened, and then started buying them from Neil Armstrong who was the first person to walk on the moon. As you can see my Mac is a mess for I worry to throw out many things.


If I delete the old emails in my mail that is the program in my Mac, will it automatically delete them actually with the accounts. If there any chance of this, I will just leave them, and next time get a MacBook with more internal memory.

I am not allowed to work on unrelated issues. I am sorry. You must create a new question for this new problem and rate the current question.

In the new question, I will need the following information:
- Are you using POP3 or IMAP protocols with the email accounts
- Do you have it setup to delete the emails online via your webmail interface?
