Sometimes even Macs misbehave. Just like you, me and everything else on Earth. Usually it’s when you’re in the middle of something very urgent or crucial to the rest of your existence. Or so it might seem. Take a deep breath and restart your Mac. A simple reboot can sometimes sort out all manner of issues. If that’s a fail, though, we hope you might find an answer here.
