MBP running 10.12 I believe. No Apple icon or menu bar so I can’t confirm version or restart or shut down either.
Half the screen has a blue veil which changes sides sometimes when I click on it. At first the dock disappeared as well, but could be retrieved temporarily. It now seems to be staying in place. It is not set to ‘Hide’ in System Preferences.
I think the trigger may have been when I accidently missed clicking the right ‘Dot’ to close a Preview window.
Fortunately I had a Systems Preferences icon in the dock but I can’t find a solution that I can perform with available resources. One Apple answer is that it’s a potentially fading hard drive. Another suggests re-setting the NVRAM. I’d like to do a backup before messing around but can’t access time Machine, no menu bar.
There were several answers on-line suggesting it happens when Safari is in full-screen mode. I didn’t have Safari on; I use Firefox. I’ve never used full screen mode.
Help would be much appreciated, please.
