When clicking on Apple menu, there is not list under drop down

Last week I came across a case where user was not able to find any menu item when he clicked on Apple menu and he has some changes to make in System Preferences which he could not do just because of this problem.
The solution for this issue is very simple, if you face this just follow these steps:

  • Go to your account and open Library.
  • Under library locate and open the Preferences folder.
  • Find the .plist file for finder and drag it to the desktop.
  • After this, launch the Apple menu, it should work fine.
  • Once it starts working fine, just move the .plist from desktop to Trash.

In any troubleshooting when you move the .plist file and it does not fixes your issue then make sure that you move that file back to its place.
