Hello,

My name is***** will be the person helping you today.

Which program do you use to access your email (Outlook, Mac Mail, Entourage, Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc)?

May I remotely connect to your computer, so I can troubleshoot and fix this issue for you?

Google.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I do not want to remote connect.

You use "Google" to access your email account? Does that mean that you use "Google Chrome" the browser to access the account?

Look, I am not real tech savvy. I turn on my Mac and hit the mail icon. Thats all I know.

Thank you. Let's begin the remote help session now.

You must run the application below on a computer. It will not work on any phone or tablet.

Follow the instructions below to begin the remote helping screen.

Remote page: http://remote.jasonfixedit.com

After clicking the link above, enter the following two digit number: 49
- And then click the circle button to start the remote application.
After the file finishes downloading, please open the file and run it.

You are using a Mac computer, so you need to do one more thing to run the remote application.

Please, do the following:
- Click the Apple icon on the top left of your screen.
- Click System Preferences
- Click the "Security & Privacy" icon.
- Click the "General" tab
- Click the "Open Anyways" button and run the program.

Once that is done, the remote application will open.

No open anyways button is appearing.

Did you attempt to run the program after you downloaded it?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No, because after I hit the general tab there was no "open anyways"

Before that will work, you have to attempt to open the program.

First, go to your downloads folder, open and run the Elsinore file.

While holding down the Shift key on the keyboard, right click the Elsinore file and choose "Open".

Can you please return my mail page to full size. Also my Home page for High Sierra is gone.

Click the Maximize button, which is located on the top left of the window. There are three icons there. Click the one on the far right.

I have to reset it every time. Not happy. Also I want my screen saver back. Not the blue screen of death.

I don't know what are you referring to now. You may be referring to the background. Please, turn your Mac off and on. That will resolve that problem.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
