What does that colorful pinwheel mean?


The Pinwheel means your Mac is thinking. If you have small RAM on your computer, you might see this more often. If your Mac doesn’t respond its never a good idea to manually power off but in some cases its necessary. In most cases Force Quitting the Application seems to do the trick. Just hold the Command + Option + Escape key (esc) then click the app you would like to quit then click “Force Quit” This is similar to Ctrl, Alt, Delete Task Manager on a windows computer.
