    Hi Michael, since I have updated my iMac to this version, the interactive corners and mouse over on menu’s don’t work… or I changed something stupid without knowing I did that 🙂
    Are you familiar with this issue on the new update?

    Wow! Thanks Michael for your quick reply. Tot disable and enable or change function did not do the trick unfortunately. Now I go and see for the corrupt dock solution.
    Thanks again!
