  1. Compared to the version available on Windows 10? Can you do everything in Visual Studio for Mac that you can do in the Windows version?
  2. OK, thanks! I did a Google search last night, and the results said to give MacOS at least 55gb of space, so I'll probably give it about 80. The hard drive is 256gb, so that'll leave me plenty for Windows, and applications like Visual Studio. I do have Visual Studio installed on the MacOS side, but I don't think it's as full-featured as the Windows 10 version is.
  3. There wasn't anything important on the Windows 10 partition, so I deleted it on the Mac OS side. Before I re-install Windows 10, how much space does Mac OS need??
  4. I didn't know that about Visual Studio. How can I expand the partition? I don't know how much space Mac OS needs; I'm running Mac Os Mojave.
  5. So I have Windows 10 setup and running on my MacBook Pro, and I checked the drive space-for some reason, I only have 25.7GB free out of the 75.1GB partition. I don't have anything installed on the Windows 10 side, except for a free version of Visual Studio, and Microsoft Office 365. That's it. I didn't even install a web browser; I'm just using the Microsoft Edge browser. So, how can I free up more disk space? I've already done Disk Cleanup today, and there's only one hard drive (a 256 GB SSD) in this MacBook.

    4 or 8gb of ram for a laptop?...

    OK, thanks for all of the replies! I appreciate them and they help a lot!
  7. I'm still looking for the right Windows 10 laptop, however it seems as though a monkey wrench has been tossed in. The tech/computer repair guy at the local business I work at said that more and more applications require 8gb of RAM, but I didn't ask him which applications he was referring to. I would use a Windows 10 laptop for MS Office, web surfing, and light gaming-when I say "light", I mean I wouldn't be playing any games newer then Half-Life 2. I certainly wouldn't be playing the latest AAA games or doing any video editing. So what is this guy talking about?

    Well, how bad could they be if it’s sponsored by Google? I mean Google’s not perfect, but they are a major tech company.

    So I found out about this Google IT certificate that the company Coursera offers, but the deadline to sign up for it was October 8th, and the courses look right up my alley. The problem I'm having is how the heck to contact Coursera, so that I can find out when they'll be offering this certificate program again. This is the only contact information that they have on their website: https://www.coursera.org/about/contact Seriously? I know they have a physical street address in Mountain View, CA, and at this point I'm almost thinking of sending them snail mail. It really shouldn't be this difficult to contact a tech company located in silicon valley. Any suggestions would be welcome.

    Anyone here work in medical billing?...

    I wonder if it's good for me to practice Word and Excel on my MacBook Pro, because I have it on the Mac OS side of things, not in the Windows 10 partition. And any office that I work in likely won't be using Macs. I've thought about picking up a cheap Windows laptop for that reason. Then again, as long as I ignore the Mac's drop down menus, Word and Excel on it are probably mostly the same as they would be on a Windows laptop.

    I live in the United States. If Medical Billing is mostly phone work, then what are some entry level office jobs where you’re using a computer most of the time? Also, should I use a temp agency? All I have on my resume is retail work.
  12. So I LOVE using computers, and am tired of working in retail. I know that there are medical billing companies that will train, although I’ve heard that it’s really tedious work. But I would love to work in an office job, in front of a computer all day.

    Can you run Cisco Packet Tracer in Windows 10, on a Mac??

    They got back to me, and Packet Tracer does not work on Windows on a Mac. So if I ever want to take any Cisco Networking Academy courses, I’ll have to buy a second laptop; a Windows one. At least the listed requirements for Packet Tracer are really low, so I can buy a cheapo laptop.

    Can you run Cisco Packet Tracer in Windows 10, on a Mac??

    Well, I just sent Cisco Network Academy a message on Facebook, asking them about this. Hopefully they'll get back to me soon.
