Have you tried restarting the computer?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
restart, also disconnect all devices, shut down, disconnect power for 30 minutes

Are there any other affected apps?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Safari, iTunes don't work, but Photos, Lightroom, Firefox do.

Photos should work. iPhoto is unlikely not going to work because Photos is its replacement.

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I don't think that 's the answer. Iphoto has worked for twelve months, and Safari, iTunes, google earth worked until yesterday but do not open any longer. The message is "no window open" which should give you a clue on how to fix it.

Did you do an update?

I just updated, which was for Safari and iTunes and took about 20 minutes. iPhoto, Safari and iTunes are now opening. Thank you.

Perfect! Cheers!

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
