Press these three keys: command+option+esc.
You'll see a list of the apps you currently have open. At least one of them will probably say "(Not Responding)" next to the app name.
For any apps which are listed as "Not Responding", simply click the app name and then click "Force Quit".

Hp dx2200 computer won't power off


If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.

MacBook Desktop Lost My Desktop Folders


If the colour circle shows... find a tiny bit of wallpaper showing through the back, then click. Then, you should see it labled finder instead of preview. Next, click on the blue apple. If it doesn't happen immediatly, a dropdown bar will show in a couple minutes. In the dropout bar, click Force Quit. It usually takes 2 minutes for the Force Quit window to show up. It'll ask you what you want to force quit,  Look at the choices and force quit all of the ones that say: NOT RESPONDING. Then the computer will clear up for a while, in wich you can probably preview your pictures.
