I keep forgetting to mention this App, in fact I keep forgetting it's name, it's called Cheat Sheet, it shows all keyboard-shortcuts for any App, Finder, etc...

Interesting application. The newest version requires Yosemite+ I tried 1.2.8 on Mavericks and it starts. I used it in Finder but it does not include the Apple menu which is something I really need on occasion and need it when my mouse has disappeared into my dead display's area (it just seems to jump there on occasion) and I need the keyboard command for logging out of my account.

It seems your newer version includes ads.

------
My new application (I save "App" for iOS things since they are NOT the same as Mac applications, plus I don't like the way Apple gives different things all the same name so the poor brains of their users are not taxed with all these terribly complicated concepts) is Keka for decompressing files. I still have the old Unarchiver but it doesn't work on some files and the new version tries to call home to the people who make Clean My Mac and I just prefer not to share with them.

I wasn't aware of the tiny ad in it!

Keka can extract lots of compressed files, from ZIP and 7Z to RAR archives, even parted ones. Just double click on those files and they will be extracted using Keka, or drop them to the icon in the Dock or the main window.

I have The Unarchiver 2.7.1 here if you need it, from 2011

I also have the 10.8 version of Cheat Sheet without ads that still works in 10.12.6

Well, haven't trusted Softpedia in a long time due to wrappers, but just downloaded iBoysoft Data Recovery for Mac as a test...

https://iboysoft.com/mac-data-recovery/ ... -is-8.html
https://iboysoft.com/mac-data-recovery/ ... ml?ref=2_8

Didn't install anything in Launch Areas & only redirected to an option to upgrade...

Was surprised how fast it found recoverable files on a 1TB USB2 HFS Partition, I didn't use it to recover the dozen or so files because I had deleted them on purpose & emptied the Trash, Free version is limited to 1GB of Recovery... so it might be an option for small recovering of files.

The Free version also Scans APFS, exFat, & Fat32 drives, but only recovers APFS in the paid Pro version.imac

Should've mentioned this 10 years ago when Anon mentioned it missing, but I'm slow... :snail:
