In case your Mac fails to boot properly, you will notice a blank or gray startup screen instead of the desktop. Don’t fret. The system needs booting in the Safe Mode. In the Safe Mode, your Mac would repair any directory issues. Start your Mac and press the Shift key till the Apple logo appears and release the shift button when the login screen appears. It may take a few minutes, so maintain patience. Once the problem is fixed, leave the safe mode and restart your system.

 

Apps are Unresponsive

 It is annoying when some apps hang or become unresponsive. When you face freezing of an application, quit the application. For this, access the Force Quit windows on your system or by hitting the Command-Option-Escape. After that, highlight the app that is unresponsive and hit the tab Force Quit.
