    When weird stuff starts going on with a Mac its best to start afresh with a new install of the lot
    I respectfully disagree.
    I've been using Mac since the late 80ies (when I was a kid) and started working using Macs about 20 years ago now.
    Use them daily, mess them up here and there, might have slightly more complex configurations than the average users on some machines...

    I did the full format/reinstall or clean OS install probably 3 or 4 times in my life (and most of them on Classic MacOS versions on 68k/PPC Macs). And that was normally over catastrophic failures, like broken hardware.

    I respect that you may be correct, but I do not have abilities with terminal to write corrective unix code lines. So in my amateur life, with data stored online, I would format the drive, reinstall MacOS, reload apps and back to being perfect again .
    Too shiny and clean to use it properly.

    Makes sense.
    I'm not that expert too (I'm not a developer or IT person).

    But in general, the nice/easy thing with OSX/Unix systems, is that before the "reinstall" step – you can try creating a new user and checking if the computer behaves normally there.
    Most fuck-ups are user-related, not system wide
