Impossible to restart my Mac Book Pro, blocked by the old printer icon

I can't reboot my mac to complete book download updates because it is blocked by the former icon of the printer that I can not delete - have deleted the program, but the icon remains open but out of order on the toolbar

can anyone help



Click on force quit command in the Apple menu (or press Command + Option + ESC) to select the program has stopped responding and get him to leave. If you cannot switch to other programs and you can not choose the order close in the Apple menu, force a shutdown by pressing the power button; do not let go until it powers off the machine.

  • Hello, I bought a new Mac Book Pro and run the synchronization feature to migrate my favorites. Everything worked yesterday, but today they have disappeared.

    After the synchronization yesterday, I deleted my favorites on my old computer, because I'll be giving my wife to use and wanted to allow him to create his own bookmarks. Today, when I opened Firefox on my new computer, my favorites have disappeared. Help, please! I had all my favorites business out there yesterday, but I need help to recover.

    Thank you!

  • I'm upgrading to a new Mac Book Pro, my 'old' goes to a friend!

    Hi all, I'm going to upgrade to a new Slimline Mac Book Pro, my 3 year old outgoing Mac Book Pro goes to a good friend of mine, I tried for years to make him give up Windows, finally, he took the bait.

    So I ask, how is it best to prepare my old MBP before transfer of ownership.?

    Is it perhaps as simple as simply format the hard drive and leaving who?. If so, how it would be able to get a copy of ElCapitan? Then would he be easy to get a free copy of Pages, Numbers and Keynote?  or maybe they are included in ElCapitan? I remember that I had to pay for them, 3 or 4 years ago.

    Questions, and is there a page I can point him that will help his PASSAGE from Windows to Apple to be as painless as possible, otherwise that I lost a very good friend!

    Hey ottaviob,

    If I understand correctly, you want to transfer contacts and other things to your new Mac.
    I recommend you to read this article; It has advice to transfer your contacts, music, photos, documents and more on your Android device. Once the content is on the Mac later at some point if you wish, this article is also not to transfer this content in an iOS device too.

    On a Mac, install Android File Transfer, open it,
