Force Safari history to sync on macOS Catalina

In order to force safari history syncing between your iPad/iPhone and Mac, you will need to first enable the “debug” menu.. This is not to be confused with the “Develop” menu, which you can enable in Safari’s settings. Make sure you have also selected “safari” within your iCloud account settings on all devices you want to sync.

1st, close safari completely with Command-Q (or whatever your preferred method is)

2nd, go to ‘System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Full Disk Access’ and add Terminal.

3rd, within Terminal, execute ‘defaults write IncludeInternalDebugMenu 1′ (without the quotes’

4th, launch Safari, and on the newly created “Debug” menu, choose ‘Sync iCloud History’

You should know see your synced history between that Mac and your iOS devices!

In the middle of a New England winter

I have a hard time with ‘global warming’ when we have winters like this.. Already the snow banks are up to my shoulders, and in the middle of a cold snap with overnight lows well below zero, and daytime highs barely reaching double digits!

Its so cold, that for the first time since I purchased it, I actually used the hand warmers on my Arien’s snow blower!
