Apple OS X Finder not responding

Apple OS X Finder not responding

What can you do when Finder is not responding. You will see for example a turning colorfull wheel. This is a difficult problem because you cannot click the Apple icon and close the application.

A solution could be rebooting your Apple device but this is not recommended.

A better solution is to start Terminal and copy/paste or type the next line:

kill -HUP `ps auxc | grep Finder | awk '{print $2}'`

This will stop the Finder process and you can start Finder again šŸ™‚
