Customer Question
My cursor is all...

My cursor is all messed up! It looks like that symbol when you try to expand a column in a table..I have a macbook and i'm trying to work on a word document. My cursor, when it looks like this, will not allow me to select anything.

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your MacBook?

OS X 10.9.5 (13F1911)

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your MacBook? What have you tried so far?

It just happened. I copied and pasted some tables from a website into my document and now on just this one page, it does this.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No thanks

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
