Everything went perfect in my last installation and it's been up and running for several days now. Recently, however, when I right click on either the desktop, files, or really anything in the OS, I get the spinning wheel indefinitely as if the context menu is going to come up but it never does. The only way I've been able to work after this happens is by hard rebooting the machine and it makes me feel like I'm smothering the machine everytime I do it.

Has anyone else experienced this, or does anyone know what might be causing this problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Best regards,
Ryan

As far as I can tell, no, but it also hasn't happened since I posted this. The only thing I can think of is that I was changing the terminal to use zsh and installing packages for it; at some point I recall a command running very long until I closed the terminal. Perhaps the OS was busy with the command? Since I finished setting up the terminal and haven't edited any of its configuration files, I haven't seen this right click issue again.
