OS X :: 10.3 Apple Menu Isn't Working?

Jan 25, 2009

The Apple menu, on all users accounts, is not working. The actual pull down menu doesn't pull down when I click on it. Also, if I try quitting applications by using the keyboard, it doesn't work. I have to force quit any application I open.

I tried repair disk permissions, and starting up in safe boot, but it didn't help.

OS X :: My Apple Menu Is Not Opening Up In My Menu Bar?

Sep 30, 2010

So i know this is gonna be a challenging one...

After a day of installing and trying/deleting new apps as well as trying terminal tricks from UsingMac.com like these and these, i went up to my apple menu in the menu bar for the first time since i started fiddling around, and it looks like what you see below in the attachment. I have absolutely no idea what made it happen; I'm just wondering if there is a way to reset the menu alone. because instead of having just what it says in the "system services" section in the menu, it has all that other stuff as well (Calculator, FruitMenu, etc.).

P.S.: Fruitmenu isn't even installed. i uninstalled it after i found out it was only a demo.

So basically:
1) how do i restore the main menu in the menu bar back to its original settings?
and 2) I need to do it in a way that wont screw up the rest of my computer or settings

OS X :: Aplle Menu Not Working/i Use Repair Also Not Working?

Jan 24, 2009

I am using OS X 10.3. The apple menu doesn't work (for the past few months). When I click on it it's highlighted but doesn't pull down. I can not quit applications even if I use keyboard shortcuts (I have to force quit).

I tried starting with "safe boot" and I ran "Verify & repair disk permissions" but it didn't fix it.
Any ideas?

OS X :: Sub-menu Selection Not Working?

Jan 2, 2009

At first i thought this was simply a firefox issue, then i noticed it was accross all of my programs. I can select the regular menu, but unless I use the arrow keys, I cannot scroll down the menus into sub-menus as I had once done. For example, I used to be able to single click on say the image menu item in PS Cs3 then I would have a highlighted bar follow my mouse down (just like using arrow keys) this would open sub menus as it came across them, allowing me to access them. Now i am running into the issue that I have to hold down the left mouse button or I cannot select the sub-menus, unless using arrow key, which tends to be inconvienient. Has anyone come across this issue and if so how can I fix it? I am running permissions repairs right now and will execute the weekly, daily and monthly scripts as well and see if it helps, but if someone has insight please let me know.

OS X :: Menu Bar Not Working/no Items?

Jul 10, 2009

I have been dealing with AppleCare and they seem to be a little stumpted, so I am going to try everyone else.

When I boot up, I no longer get the items in the menu bar like date, time, wireless, bluetooth status, etc.

In the Apple Menu, things like "About this Mac", reboot, shut down, etc. Do nothing.

System Preferences gives me a beachball.

I have just recently did a CLEAN install. The install worked fine.
I then changed the time to EST and updated to 10.5.7. I did not do all the other updates...wanted to take it slow.

I am back to the issue again!

There is nothing installed on this computer other than Leopard!

It is a 15" Macbook Pro 4GB memory, Intel processor...etc.

At first Apple thought a 3rd party app may have corrupted some preferences. This can not be the case....

Thoughts? Could it be bad hardware??? The machine is just over 2 years old.

Mar 27, 2010

I installed and uninstalled Aqua Connect Trial today (Terminal Server / Remote Desktop for Mac) and I'm fairly certain I now have 2 major issues because of it.Googled for the past hour for a solution but found nothing so far.

- in the menu the Sleep item is greyed out. I cannot click it, the keyboard shortcut for sleep doesn't work and pressing the power button does nothing

- all my animations aren't smooth anymore like expose, dock, dashboard, etc

I'm pulling my hair out of frustration

OS X Yosemite :: Mail Context Menu Not Working?

Nov 30, 2014

Since the installation of Yosemite, Mail context menus no longer work. Control-clicking on a hyperlink in a mail messages opens a context menu containing these items:

Selecting any of the first 3 has no effect. Just clicking on the hyperlink will switch to the browser (Safari) and open the link. Clicking on "Services" does display a list of Services, and "Open URL in Firefox" at least seems to work. However, "Open URLs in Safari Tabs" does not. This seems to indicate a possible disconnect between Mail and Safari in particular.

OS X :: Apple Menu Doesn't Put Imac To Sleep

Sep 8, 2009

Choosing 'Sleep' from the Apple Menu doesn't put my iMac to sleep, the first time, sometimes not the second, usually third try after a lo-o-o-o-n-g delay. On first try, keyboard shortcut 'Sleep' worked; thereafter, instead, the same key combo causes Restart.

OS X :: Apple In The Menu Bar Change Color Automatically?

Oct 30, 2008

Hello everyone. No I AM NOT looking to mod the apple logo in my menu bar. My question is this: Why does my apple logo change color from time to time? I have seen it Red/Orange, blue, white/grey, and traditional black. Why is it doing this? I have never seen it before. No I haven't changed backgrounds/themes. It isn't all the time, infact I am not sure if it is related to any specific user intervention. I am just curious as to why it may be doing this. I've googled and only founds ways to hack it. NO I am not on hallucinogens. I thought it was related to the Apple Software update, indicating I had new updates, but this was disproven today when it was Red and I checked for updates.

OS X :: Apple Icon In Menu Bar Stuck In Graphite

Aug 9, 2010

I was switching between Blue and Graphite and now I think my apple icon in the menu bar is stuck in graphite. Though I'm not sure if that was just the way it always was. Everything else seems to be in the blue theme. Here is a screen shot of the specific area...

I have restarted my computer and everything. I'm running Mac OS 10.6.4. My menu bar is currently set to translucent but it seems to be just darker when it isn't anyway.

OS X :I Can't Click On Any Of The Menu Options And Expose Stops Working?

Jul 6, 2009

I'm on an older blackbook (2 years old? ca. summer 2007) running Leopard and I'm getting some weird behavior with Finder. When I right click on anything in the dock, i.e., to close a program, the dock locks up, I can't click on any of the menu options, Expose stops working and the alt+tab interface stops working, as if everything is frozen... This caused me to think that Finder was crashing, but then I discovered that when I went up to the menubar at the top, everything "unfroze." The dock went back to normal and was usable, expose works fine and the alt-tab interface works fine too.
