Possible Fixes for El Capitan or Later

You should try each, one at a time, then test to see if the problem is fixed before going on to the next.

 

    Be sure to backup your files before proceeding if possible.

 

  1. Shutdown the computer, wait 30 seconds, restart the computer.
  2. Resetting your Mac’s PRAM and NVRAM
  3. Reset the System Management Controller (SMC)
  4. Start the computer in Safe Mode, then restart normally. This is slower than a standard startup.
  5. Repair the disk by booting from the Recovery HD. Immediately after the chime hold down the Command and R keys until the Utility Menu appears. Choose Disk Utility and click on the Continue button. Select the indented (usually, Macintosh HD) volume entry from the side list.  Click on the First Aid button in the toolbar. Wait for the Done button to appear. Quit Disk Utility and return to the Utility Menu. Restart the computer from the Apple Menu.
  6. Create a New User Account Open Users & Groups preferences. Click on the lock icon and enter your Admin password when prompted. On the left under Current User click on the Add [+] button under Login Options. Setup a new Admin user account. Upon completion log out of your current account then log into the new account. If your problems cease, then consider switching to the new account and transferring your files to it - Transferring files from one User Account to another.
  7. Download and install the OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 Combo Update or 10.12.6 Combo Update or macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 Combo Update as needed.
  8. Reinstall OS X by booting from the Recovery HD using the Command and R keys. When the Utility Menu appears select Reinstall OS X then click on the Continue button.
  9. Erase and Install OS X Restart the computer. Immediately after the chime hold down the Command and R keys until the Apple logo appears. When the Utility Menu appears:
  1. Select Disk Utility from the Utility Menu and click on Continue button.
  2. When Disk Utility loads select the drive (out-dented entry) from the Device list.
  3. Click on the Erase icon in Disk Utility's toolbar. A panel will drop down.
  4. Set the Format type to Mac OS Extended (Journaled.)
  5. Click on the Apply button, then wait for the Done button to activate and click on it.
  6. Quit Disk Utility and return to the Utility Menu.
  7. Select Reinstall OS X and click on the Continue button.

Show is Finder is not a switch, that can be toggled on and off.  It is just a button, that will open the a Finder window, to show you where the library is.

By default the library is in your Pictures folder, and it will always be visible by anyone who can open your Pictures folder.

You could remove the Pictures folder from your Finder sidebar, so you do not accidentally open it.

This can be done in the Finder > Preferences > Sidebar.

 

By default the permissions on a Photos Library are Read&Write for you, but others only can read it. So no but you can delete it.

You are welcome.  If you boot into the Recovery Partition (command - R on a restart), you can reinstall the OS without having to erase the disk. Everything remains as it was barring an oops.


Check Finder -> Preferences -> Sidebar snd see if Applications is selected

Check Finder -> Preferences -> Sidebar snd see if Applications is selected

 

Originally, the Applications folder should have been in your Dock on the Right. You can drag the Applications folder back to the Dock on the Right side if you like.

 

Finder -> Go -> Applications is another way to get to the Applications folder, PLUS that menu will tell you what keyboard shortcut will also open the Applications folder.
