I have had lots of questions from Mac users over the past few weeks about whether it is time yet to upgrade to Mac's latest operating system, MacOS Mojave 10.14 (which is now at version 10.14.1, after an update released at the end of October)

In fact, I just discovered an article on this topic, and have just tried out the suggestions to see if this helps. So far so good!
