    Preview won't open
    I can't get my Preview app to open. The message says, "You can't open the application "Preview" because it's not responding. It's been that way for over a week. Any suggestions? I've closed everything out and restarted several times-- no help. That's always my go-to remedy

    Welcome to our forums.

    We're going to need some info from you before we can offer help. Which version of macOS are you using and on what Mac (year and model)? Also, can you verify that the Preview application is there in your Applications folder?

    I have Mac OS High Sierra on a Mac Book Pro 2012. The preview app does appear in the Applications folder, but will not open from there.

    Create a new user account, and see if it opens under the new user account?

    Have you performed any maintenance on your MBP recently?

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.
