How can I boot back to OS X Mojave from Boot Camp 6 with password-locked boot manager?

So, the situation is as follows:

I have a MacBook Air 13” (early 2015), which was corporate but the employer allowed me to buy it when I was changing jobs. I have installed Windows 10 from an official ISO, using Boot Camp Assistant. Everything went smooth, but now I can’t boot back to OS X.

Windows Boot Camp helper can’t find the OS X boot partition (AFAIK Boot Camp 6.0 doesn’t support APFS). Booting into Boot Manager won’t work because there is a password in place (didn’t even bother touching it for years, didn’t know it was there). I’ve tried installing Boot Manager 6.1 (which is told to have APFS support) using brigadier, but brigadier downloads 6.0 no matter what I try to do.

I have no means of contacting my previous employer and I have no proof of buying this Mac.

Is there anything I can do to boot back to OS X and/or fix the boot order?

Permission Denied When Trying To SSH Into My MacBook Pro Running Mojave

Recently I’ve been trying to establish a remote connection into my laptop. I have turned on “remote login” in the sharing settings, and I have configured my router to forward port 22 to my laptop. I’m able to reach my MacBook’s IP address, but when I tried to login using

ssh myusername@my.macbooks.ip.adress 

and entered my password, the response I got was:

Permission denied. please try again 

I thought I entered my password wrong so I tried, and then again. However I keep getting denied. The third time it says

Permission denied (publickey,password). 

which is weird, because when I have my other device connected to the same local network as my MacBook, and try to ssh into my MacBook’s internal IP, using the same password, I was able to log in. But as soon as I tried to ssh into my MacBook’s public IP from a different network (with port forwarding configured), I keep getting denied. Does anyone know why this is happening?

trackpad MacBook Pro Mojave Retina 13 inch mid 2014

My keyboard is working funny. the right side shift will not let me make capital letters. But the left side shift command button will. my trackpad will click, but it stopped working to move the curser around. however the trackpad works perfect if I start up computer using command d. so for the 2 min it takes for the diagnostic test to complete I can move my curser using the track pad just fine. so its not the hardware. today I did not have my mouse near my computer to be able to choose my user at startup so I just pressed the arrow key on the keyboard and it moved my cursor over to my user icon for me to sign in. this tells me that something is telling my computer to listen to the keyboard and not the trackpad. It is not the setting in accessibility that says ignore built in trackpad when mouse or wireless trackpad is present. that is unchecked. this is something going on with keyboard settings. can I use terminal to command default settings?

Cannot partition w/ Boot Camp Assistant on macOS Mojave

Late 2016 Macbook Pro running Mojave 10.14.3, APFS-formatted (ugh).

I have run Disk Utility to verify my disk, and I’ve run fsck -fy from single-user mode several times. Both of these have reported absolutely no errors.

And yet, whenever I try to run Boot Camp Assistant to dual-boot with Windows 10, I get an error that says: “An error occurred while partitioning the disk.”

Thinking I’d be clever, I also tried to create a partition manually through Disk Utility, but that didn’t work either. I also reinstalled macOS in Recovery Mode.

I am starting to suspect that this is a problem with APFS. What other commands could I run to receive more information as to why Boot Camp Assistant won’t let me create a partition to run Windows? Thanks in advance.

Add arcfour Cipher to Mojave 10.14

Im trying to use the arcfour cipher with SSH. Yes, I am aware of the risks, but I have my own reasons for wanting to use it. When I list available ciphers, it’s not there. Is it possible to add it in?

Available ciphers:

$   ssh -Q cipher 3des-cbc aes128-cbc aes192-cbc aes256-cbc aes128-ctr aes192-ctr aes256-ctr 

Attempt to use arcfour:

$   ssh -c arcfour file2 Unknown cipher type 'arcfour' 

Why isn’t there, by default, a keyboard shortcut to maximize the current window on macOS Mojave?

I’m very used to doing things using keyboard shortcuts. Recently, I switched from Windows to Mac and I really miss the maximize current window functionality on Mac.

I searched for a solution and found that we need to add some shortcuts for keyboard or use some third-party tools to achieve it.

However, I was just curious to understand why such a “basic/oft used” functionality does not have a shortcut assigned to it by default?
