    Default How do you set iPhoto as the Default (System) Photo Library?

    I'd like to set iPhoto back as the Default Photo Library and Sync my iPhone to it instead of Apple Photos. How do you set it as System Photo Library?

    I don't think yo can unless you install a version of OS X that included the iPhoto app by default.

    Is there a way to downgrade back to Yosemite (a place where I can download the OS and wipe my iMac and reinstall it), then?

    You should be able to find it via the following link.

    Sorry if this seems oblivious... But are the "Combo Updates" a full OS that I can use to downgrade? They aren't very descriptive and the text implies that it's simply the equivalent of a service pack.

    WHen you go to the purchased section of the App Store on your iMac, do you see Yosemite listed? I'm not on my MacBook and I'm too lazy to get up, go into my room, to turn it on. Sorry. I'm simply too comfortable on this sofa to even get up top go take a leak...(laughing)

    Just El Capitan listed. I'll call the Apple Store tomorrow and see if they can do it.

    Nah, the link was helpful. I'm just clueless on how to interpret the information provided by it :-P
