I keep getting a popup message “The application “Preview” is not open anymore”.
Can’t open any of my screenshots, nor pdf(s) in Documents / Finder – not yet tried to open Pages / Numbers docs.
When I click on Preview icon on bottom toolbar thing happens.
It has a black dot below it.
Please help! I’m in midst of planning my father’s funeral, so really need to access lots of stuff!

Try force quitting preview by pressing the keys (all of them) Command+Option+Escape and choose t the Preview app to force quit.
If that doesn’t work, open the Activity Monitor (in Applications > Utilities folder) and quit Preview from there.
Once you are able to quit Preview, restart your Mac and try again
YOU MUST REBOOT for this to work

I’m having this exact message, trying to look at old photos.
All was well until I opened one that was just a number, with app ‘terminal’, which I then closed.
I’m worried I’ve messed up in something.

Same here. What to do about it?

Sorry to hear about your issue.
It seems you are not too familiar with settings and advanced features within your mac os.
Therefore I recommend you use a utility program that can scan and find errors and fix them automatically.
I use an anti-malware and anti-virus software for the past 2 years and it works very well.
Try them out by downloading and installing free (for a trial period)
