    open applications don't highlight in my dock or appear in the open apps
    I have a macbook pro 15".....i am running 10.5.8...i know i need to upgrade....a few days ago my apps stopped appearing in the menu when I use command + tab to switch between apps. they also don't have the little white dot next to them when they are open in the dock....is this a setting issue?

    Specs:
    Mac Mini (Late 2014) 2.6GHz Intel Core i5 Memory: 8GB 1600MHz DDR3
    Menu items are part of the System User Interface.
    Go to HD/Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences
    Drag com.apple.systemuiserver.plist to the Desktop

    While there, also drag com.apple.dock.plist to the Desktop
    Restart the computer. Restarting will make default plist files back in that folder. This might clear up all your problems.

    If it doesn't, log in under a different user account and see how that goes.
