    In MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019, macOS Catalina, Version 10.15.7), I see an icon on the righthand side of the menu bar. Clicking on it showed the pinwheel for a long time. Eventually it went away, but the system was sluggish. And I had to Force Quit the system to restart. The icon I am talking...

    Thinking about downgrading to original Big Sur OS because new update is causing problems....

    I have had some random problems with Big Sur since 11.3 (ex. photo screensaver doesn't work anymore, much slower & the 'beach ball' is showing up all the time, etc.) I assume anything that I have added to my Mac since then will be gone? I have a Time Machine backup but wasn't sure if I could...

    macOS Big Sur is erasing keywords as soon as I type them....

    I recently upgraded to Big Sur from Mojave on my late 2014 iMac and whenever I try to type in a keyword to add it makes it disappear as soon as I type it. Is anyone else having this problem? When I try to type in a caption for the photo that works most of the time, but keywords don't.
