OS X Yosemite :: Force Quit Window Will Say - Finder Is Not Responding

Dec 2, 2014

I've assigned the tags I want to a file, I'll get the beach ball. If I go into the Force Quit window it will say that Finder is not responding. But if I wait about 20-30 seconds it stops and I can go about my business w/o re-starting the Finder. I only noticed this after installing Yosemite. I use tags A LOT.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Force Quit Mac Mail To Shutdown?

Mar 28, 2012

Every time I want to shut down my late 2011 MacBook Pro, Mac Mail cancels the shut down & I have to force quit mail.  I was having this problem on my old 2008 MacBook before I upgraded to the Pro (but it only started after I upgraded to Lion OSX).  So what's wrong w/ Mac Mail? And is there some setting I can change?  This is an annoying time suck.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change The Size Of The Force Quit Window?

May 13, 2012

When I open the force quit window, it fills my entire screen, and it is larger than the screen of the TFT monitor that I am using from time to time. How can I change its size back to original? The window is not resizable by dragging its border or clicking the green plus button in the title bar.  

I don't know how the window got this size in the first place. All I know is that it happened during a crash where I closed a lot of other windows and where I accidentially clicked the green plus button of the force quit window instead of the red x.

How do I close an application that won't quit and doesn't show up in the force quit dialogue box?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Preview Remaining Open In Background - Requires Force Quit

Jun 20, 2012

I have this problem on my new MBA (2012) and mac mini (2011), both running the latest update of LION (10.7.4). Basically, if I am using preview, it shows up on my dock no problem and I can close windows/hide/quite no problem. Usually a while later, a copy of Preview ends up showing up in my FORCE QUIT menu (if I happen to be there), but is not visibly open. (see pic).

Odd that it occurs on both. Only things that are non-apple installed on MBA (and mirror with MM) are:

- MS Office 2k11
- Firefox
- ClamXav virus scanner
- Diablo 3

OS X :: Finder Will Not Relaunch - Desktop Disappears

Nov 10, 2009

Is it normal for the Finder to quit using the Cmd+ Q? I thought it needs to be force quit. But of late, sometimes, accidentally if I press Cmd+Q on a finder window, it quits, and does not relaunch either. So to speak, the Desktop disappears. I have to launch Downloads/Documents from the Dock to start the finder running once again. Doesn't seem Mac like. Something wrong, is it? And I recall this started happening after I ran an update for 10.6.1. It was running fine with 10.6.0

MacBook Pro :: Finder Wont Repond Even After Relaunch It

Apr 5, 2012

I recently replaced my cracked screen by myself using the powerbookmedic website. The computer runs successfully, but Finder won't respond when I click it. I've tried relaunching it and after a few seconds all I get is the spinning umbrella. I've tried relaunching over and over, and the furthest I get is that my desktop items will appear, but I can't click them and Finder still won't respond, so I relaunch it again and they disappear. I've tried restarting it over and over during the few seconds after I relaunch Finder. I've tried shutting it down completely and even taking it apart again to see if I missed a plug or anything, and everything is where it is supposed to be. I think I need to reboot, but I need to save my pictures and docs, but I don't know how without using Finder..

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Freezes And Won't Relaunch When Attempting To Backup Using Time Machine

Jun 6, 2014

I have been backing up for years using Time Machine (TM) which uses a hard drive connected to my Time Capsule on my network. I use an external drive connected to the Time capsule.Every night, my MBP is scheduled to backup which it has done for years. The last successful backup was 4 days ago. It stopped working and when I tried to click on TM starting manually, it hangs up and freezes Finder. I try to relaunch Finder and it freezes the computer by taking all icons off my desktop. I can use mail and other programs but FINDER will not work. I have used disk utilities to check the drive AND repair permissions.

The only way I can shut down is by holding the on/off button and then restarting. The computer starts up fine and works UNTILL I try to back up to TM again. The whole thing happens again. My O/S is regulary updated and I checked that too.

THere must be something corrupted or screwed up with the TM / Finder links.

Mac OS X (10.7.1), plus IOS on iPhone 5S

OS X :: IMac And AOL - Need To Force Quit

Mar 25, 2009

I purchased a new IMac Intel version and I am having a problem with AOL. I have always had a problem with AOL and my Macs (now on number 3). In the past, if I left AOL running it would not allow the Macs to close down without Force Quitting from AOL and AOL would not quit normally. With the new Mac, if I use AOL it won't quit and when I Force Quit it disconnects the Mac from the internet and I have to restart. As I live in Antigua both Apple and AOL have been useless at trying to solve the problem.

OS X :: Force Quit Has Wrong Key Command On 10.6?

May 28, 2010

I wanted to force quit an application on my first gen MacBook running Mac OS X 10.6.3, so I looked up the short cut key command from the Apple menu. I saw that it was option-command-power-button. I pressed these keys, and my Mac instantly displayed a black screen. After about five seconds, my Mac made the usual sounds of starting up. I booted up, and nothing seemed to have been affected, so I double checked Console, which didn't help much. I looked up the short cut key command for force quit online. The Internet says its option-command-esc. I tried the command, and up popped the force quit prompt. So why is the short cut key command WRONG on my Apple menu?

OS X :: How To Force Quit When Pressing Red Button

Nov 9, 2010

I'd like to force quit just like in Windows when I press the Red Button. It's stupid that OS X minimizes it. ( programs consume alot of CPU power if you do this, I watched activity monitor and some programs use 10-20% in this state )

How do I setup OS X to force quit an application when I press the Red Button?

OS X :: After Force Quit No Way To Restart Application

Apr 23, 2009

Sometime when some application hangs I try to force quit it and the process completely disappears from the Activity Monitor, but the little white marker under the icon on the dock remains and there is no way to restart the application. Does any one know of an easy way out without having the restart the machine? I have a 2008 MBP with Leopard 100% up-to-date on the machine. I tried restarting the application directly from the Application folder instead of double clicking on the dock, and I got "An unexpected error occurred (error code -600)" -- according to Apple, error code -600 means: procNotFound - No eligible process with specified process serial number.

OS X :: Any Way To Set Escape Button To Force Quit

Aug 2, 2010

I was just wondering whether or not if there's a way to change the escape button in an open window (red one) to force quit? I'm not really a fan of the whole escape button not entirely quitting your apps, it's still running (if that makes sense).
