Comment réparer le curseur gelé sur MacBook Pro
Forcer à quitter les applications
If the cursor freezes after you open a specific app or website, the issue will likely disappear after you close that app. How to approach it while you cannot move the cursor at all? You can use the shortcut keys.
Presse Command, Option, and Esc keys simultaneously. Once the popup pane appears, highlight the app you want to close and click “Force Quit.”
Moniteur d'activité ouvert
Too many apps or tabs on the browser open simultaneously can make your Mac runs out of RAM. That’s why you cannot move the cursor on your computer.
Freeing up the RAM can be the solution to this issue. You can press the Command and space keys altogether to open Spotlight. Then, type activity monitor and click on it. Now, double-click the unresponsive process that consumes too much memory and bonds. Quit.
Redémarrez votre MacBook
Sometimes, the frozen cursor on MacBook Pro can be solved by restarting your Mac. Before shutting down the Mac, disconnect all accessories from it.
If the cursor is frozen and you cannot navigate to the Apple menu to power off the computer, press and hold the power button for a few seconds.
Nettoyer le trackpad
If you only use the trackpad to navigate MacBook, try to clean it from dust, fingerprints, etc. Also, make sure your fingers are clean, dry, and oil-free. Before cleaning the trackpad, unplug the computer from the power source and shut it down.
Use a microfiber or soft and lint-free cloth to clean it. Spray the cleaner to the cloth and wipe gently. Don’t spray the cleaner directly on the trackpad.
If none of the methods above can temporarily fix the frozen cursor on MacBook Pro, try to reset System Management Control (SMC).
