A mys­te­ri­ous warn­ing mes­sage

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

My pop-up mes­sage says some­thing about some­thing not be­ing sup­ported and will end soon. As this is a rare popup mes­sage, I don’t ever get time to fin­ish read­ing it. It’s wor­ry­ing – I don’t know who it is sent by and I never know what to do. Carol Wade

In all like­li­hood, you don’t need to worry about this. It’s prob­a­bly just a warn­ing from an app that you are us­ing an old ver­sion of some­thing and the de­vel­op­ers will soon no longer be of­fer­ing tech­ni­cal sup­port for prob­lems with that ver­sion.

Pop-up mes­sages nor­mally wait for you to click OK be­fore they close, but you can al­ways hit ç+ß+3 to cap­ture a screen­shot (which is saved to your desk­top). Try to do this the next time your mys­te­ri­ous mes­sage pops up and send it to me, and I’ll be able to give you more spe­cific ad­vice on what – and whether – you need to up­grade.

Any pop-up warn­ing worth its salt will wait for you to ac­knowl­edge it be­fore it dis­ap­pears.
