Only one application can open on my Hitachi HDS721075KLA360 iMac 8.1

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have an annoying problem with my iMac 8.1 which has only one processor: a 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor. The machine also has two cores that have 6MB L2 and 4 GB memory. I operate with OSX 10.6.8. The machines other specifications are: Bus speed of Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz, Boot ROM Version IM81.00C1.B00, SMC version 1.20f1, model: Hitachi HDS721075KLA360. All of a sudden, the machine can only have only one open application at any given time and any other open application disappears from the screen.

Although other open applications can be viewed through use of the Tab-command, the other operation immediately disappears. At no time do I use expose or spaces features. It is so annoying and inconveniencing. Could know the cause and solution for my problem? Please help.

That problem may be occurring due to the settings that you have set in the Mac  OSX application. You might have turned on the auto hide on the desktop settings and therefore only one application can only be opened. When another is opened the current application will automatically be hidden. And therefore you will need to check the desktop display settings and if the auto hide option for applications is on you will need to turn it off.

The operating itself may be having some problems, and therefore you might need to carry out a clean reinstallation to fix the bugs that might be causing that problem to occur.
