Steven John has two ways to stop the Mac’s spinning wheel.
It has many names, from the “Spinning Wheel of Death,” to the “Spinning Pizza of Death,” to the “Spinning Wait Cursor.” But no matter what you call it, there’s one thing we can all agree on: no one wants to see a spinning wheel while they’re working on a Mac.
If the wheel has been spinning for a while now and doesn’t show any signs of stopping, first determine if the problem is with a specific program, or with your Mac as a whole. Try to use other apps and, if they’re work fine, Force Quit out of the app that’s freezing.
Good tips to remember.
