Using Keyboard Commands While Screen Sharing

In Snow Leopard, screen sharing now properly transfers all keyboard commands to the remote server. For example, the Command-Tab application switcher switches applications only on the remote system's screen.

Hider 2.1

Send Article to a Friend

MacPaw has released version 2.1 of its Hider app, which enables you to hide and encrypt private data on your Mac (see Nick Mediati’s review, “Hider 2 Promises File Privacy for the Masses,” 8 May 2014). The update restructures the vault database for improved handling of unforeseen interruptions and adds advanced secure erase options added that make traces of hidden files unrecoverable. Hider 2.1 also introduces the capability to select a custom primary vault location on your drive, improves the workflow for external drives, adds a user interface state preservation, improves compatibility with FAT and ExFAT external drives, and adds drag-and-drop support for the Hider menu bar icon. A free 15-day trial is available at the MacPaw Web site, and Hider 2.1 is available via the Mac App Store. ($19.99 new, free update, 5.7 MB, release notes, 10.8+)
