I am a total beginner setting up my Monero wallet. I am also very limited with computer knowledge. I was able to download the Mac OS X 64bit. At this point I have read and tried a number of articles on "Wallet is not connected to daemon". I have not been able to locate any folder or files with an exe.file. I have tried using "simple mode" and "advanced mode" to get the wallet to sync with a node with no luck. Frankly I'm not even sure I am saying things correctly?
If you have low technical knowledge, I would recommend looking into using a more user-friendly wallet like Feather (https://featherwallet.org/) for desktop or Cake Wallet (https://cakewallet.com/) for mobile.
I can't help fix the issue very much given the information you've provided. Simple mode in the GUI wallet should connect to a remote node after you've signed into the wallet.
