ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut

For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.

You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.

One quick recommendation for something else to read this week — a warning about Mac-focused Trojans that install ad-embedding extensions in Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.

Beware Trojans Bearing Ads -- According to Russian security firm Doctor Web, there are an increasing number of Mac-focused Trojans that install extensions for Safari, Chrome, and Firefox. These extensions are designed to embed third-party ad code into otherwise unrelated Web pages, funneling the clickthrough revenue back to the malware authors. The Trojans use a variety of techniques to fool users into installation, including masquerading as video plug-ins, media players, download accelerators, and more. To be safe, avoid installing software from sites that prompt you to do so — always get software from trusted sources.
