Is there a way to reset the application data so that it defaults to the processes tab again? I'm not familiar with how MacOS handles it, but on Linux you'd just delete the folder in ~/.config/

@heavyhdx 

 

try this to reset activity monitory not to open with Energy Tab - and just don't go there anymore!

/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Set :SelectedTab 0" ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.ActivityMonitor.plist

tluck,

Do you think High Sierra will work on this laptop when fully released?
Have you tested it at all?

Thanks

Hi, beautiful people. I need your help. I've set up Yosemite 10.10.4 about 2 years ago according to this manual. My T420 has Clover 3021. Everything works smooth, but I have overheating issue. My laptop shuts down often when I have a lot of apps opened, or in hot environment. I have to wait until it cools down and then turn it on again. Is there any fix for this? I appreciate any help!

From time to time you have to clean the grills with a vacuum cleaner

Hello, skoal. I can confirm it works. Wifi speed gets to the maximum of my internet provider, about 300MB/s down and upload.

 

Remember AW-CB160H uses MHF4 connectors. I had to buy three antennas,

Now adapters are available, so you will only need one.

Hope it helps.
