Hi,
I've decided to work on our 2016 Taxes (due October 16) right now rather than the Equifax security breach problem. I'm trying to open certain Text Edit documents from 2016 that are on my iMac Hard Drive. Unfortunately for me I only get 2 choices of drives and they are both iCloud which I never knowingly use. (see screen shot attached). How can I change the choice of Drive to search from iCloud to Macintosh HD? (I'd really like to search the Desktop but figure if I learn how to search Macintosh HD, I can get from there to Desktop.)

Thank you!

Warm Regards,
Carol

Hi Carol,

I would suggest rebooting as your first step.

Call me if that does not work.

Brian
