How to Get the “Save As” Shortcut Back in macOS Mojave

Organizing a Home Office to Work for You and Your Family

The following is a guest post about organizing a home office to work for you and your family from regular contributor, Morgan from Morganize with Me.

While I worked a little bit every day that we were away in Lake Louise it wasn’t enough to stop the inbox glacier from creeping ever larger, and today I’ve made coffee, set everything to “ignore” (including the house, which looks like a stampede of bison went through) and put my phone in a drawer.  Me and this inbox are going to tango till one of us drops, and it’s not going to be me.
