Tried to move some photos and saw the amount was over 4000. Tried to cancel the request and after a note came up and said cancelled, I shut the window. Now when working on computer a small tan window comes up and says “Closing the Library” at random times. It will not let us download the new OS. Please help?

Closing the library pops up when I try to open Photos

Photos has been stuck with a little rectangle saying “Closing the library” for 3 days.
I am afraid of losing my slideshow work if I force quit.
What to do?

Try “Force Quitting” the Photos app by clicking “Force Quit,” which is under the Apple Icon in the menu bar (Apple Menu > Force Quit ), highlighting the Photos app icon in the pop-up window and clicking the “Force Quit” button. Then shut down the computer and wait for a few minutes. Power the computer back up and open Photos. See if your Photos app seems to be working fine, and updates the library with photos taken recently.
If that didn’t help, Repair your Photo Library
- Press Option-Command and double-click the Photos icon in the Applications folder (or click the Photos icon in the Dock). The Repair Library window opens
- Click Repair to rebuild your photo library

Thank you, Pauline O’Rielley. The force quit followed by shut down for few minutes restored my photos when restarted.

I clicked on Photos so that the word Photos showed in my Bookmarks Bar. Then I went to the Apple Icon in the Bar and clicked on force quit. That made a pop up that highlighted Photos and I clicked force quit and my Photos all opened up right where I left off.

I’m having a terrible problem with my MacBook Air because “Closing Library…” keeps popping up and I have super important work to finish where I need to Airdrop many photos and then attach them to my ‘Pages” work.
Although the iPad sends the Airdropped photos, they will not upload onto my MacBook anymore.
“Closing Library…” just appears and I cannot ‘Quit’ the Photos app at the bottom of my screen either :-(((((
