    Can anyone help me? I think I deleted my High sierra operating system by accident. The base system is still there but I cant get any farther then that. I also do not have a recovery disk and the computer did not come with disks. Is there anything I can do to fix this. Please help me!
    Thanks

    Boot your Mac into recovery mode by holding down Command + R (cycle the power and hold those keys).

    Once in recovery mode you can choose to re-install High Sierra. As long as you don’t wipe the partition you should be able to see all of your data once it’s finished. There might even be an option to repair your existing installation.

    What exactly did you delete?

    I had to edit the original post. It’s command + r.
