    Hello there. I'm new here. Well ok, lets not get off-topic, I was replacing some files on my mac, when the program which replaces or copies or what ever stopped responding when i was replacing some files. I tried to close it but it wouldn't close. I went to the force quit menu and saw there was no copier or anything just Finder. The finder was selected and im used to click cancel and i force quitted finder accedently. Everything went wrong and i can't see my desktop, the finder doesn't work and my mouse lags... I can't relaunch finder i have tried really much. PLEASE I NEED HELP!

    if you can launch terminal you can try the command killall Finder. just search for terminal in your spotlight (top right corner). when terminal launches just type "killall Finder" without quotes and it should restart it. i use this sometimes

    Command + Alt (option) + Escape
    Select Finder from the list and click relaunch.
