Hi zna2212!

It sounds like your documents are being synced to iCloud Drive and you'd like to revert to how you had it setup before, and I'm happy to help.  You can follow these instructions to turn off Desktop and Documents in iCloud Drive.  If this doesn't resolve the issue for you, please reply to this thread with further information:

Turn off Desktop and Documents

When you turn off Desktop & Documents Folders, your files stay in iCloud Drive and a new Desktop and Documents folder is created on your Mac in the home folder. You can move files from iCloud Drive to your Mac as you need them, or select all of your files and drag them to the place you want to keep them.

  1. From your Mac, go to Apple menu  > System Preferences > iCloud.
  2. Next to iCloud Drive, click Options.
  3. Deselect Desktop & Documents Folders.
  4. Click Done.

If you turn off iCloud Drive or sign out of iCloud, you have the option to keep a local copy of your files that are in iCloud Drive. Whether you decide to keep a local copy or not, a new Desktop and Documents folder is created in your home folder. If you choose to keep a local copy, your files in iCloud Drive are copied to a folder called iCloud Drive (Archive) in your home folder. Then you have the option to move any files that were in your iCloud Desktop and Documents, back to your new local Desktop and Documents.


Add your Desktop and Documents files to iCloud Drive


Cheers!

Hi Ahit,

I understand that your MacBook Pro acts as though your option key is pressed when using macOS on your MacBook Pro. I'm happy to provide some help for this issue.

Based on the troubleshooting you've tried already, I recommend that you try to reset your SMC:

You tried to log into "PayPal" (It wasn't) from an eMail message.

 

This is called a phishing scam. The Mail was a fake, it would have come from a fake email address which you can see if you click on the Sender in the eMail. They scare you into clicking on the link, then you get the scary message and call the number where someone now knows how gullible you are and extracts financial details or money from you.

Hi,

Hi,

 

Strange,  I just pushed the Minus icon on my List whilst the Jabber (Google) account was highlighted and the pop up appeared asking if I was sure.

I stopped at that point not wishing to remove mine.

 

As you say though, removing the account in Internet Accounts should also do it.

 

I am not familiar with the services Verizon might offer but they might offer a Jabber account for Messaging as well.

You would probably have to visit the Verizon Web Site to find out the info for the Server name, which might be different to an Email Server Name that they might use.

 

I tried Sending from my Mail app (each of the Accounts that I have) to first my iPhone's Number including the International Dialling Code and this did not work.  I tried without the Dialling Code.

Each time it said the Address I was sending to was not in a recognised format and would not send (That was when I tried every outgoing server I have for each account)

I have also checked all the Menus And I don't have any option to "Send as SMS".

 

If your Email service provider is allowing emails to be sent to Phone number's it is not something being offered here in Britain.

 

I do know that at one time (actually it was probably right up to the end of the Service) the AIM service did allow Messages sent from iChat and then later Messages to be passed on as it were to a limited number of phone service providers.

There used to be a list on the AIM web site but the links to it now are broken.

However the Number had to be a USA one and be from this list of Service Providers.

My Test is not doing that although I do have an AIM email account.

 

I am not sure therefore that it is a feature of either app but more likely either a hangover from from having an AIM login or a Service feature that your Email Service Provider does.

Ok, I'm going to tell you where I go to get this selection for my mail provider and see if this works for you.  I use gmail which is also SMTP and by default it tries to "Archive" instead of "Delete" and instead of having a trash can, there is a box.

 

What you need to do is go to Settings > Accounts & Passwords > Then click on the account you wish to work with (In my instance, it's Gmail) > Then you'll click on the account at the top > Advanced > There you'll see "Move Discarded Messages Into: > Select Deleted Mailbox instead of Archive Mailbox.  It should then return your trash can in your mail.

Sounds like it was corrupted from an improper shutdown.  I've had that happen when I forced a power down with my environment frozen.  It doesn't usually happen, but it can happen.

 

What do you need out of this?  Sometimes the only thing that can be done is to reformat and start over again.  If you have a backup, you can start from that.  If you have something important on that drive that's nowhere else, you might want to get whatever you can off that drive and then put it aside for when you can attempt to recover that data.  If it's not removable you've choices to make over how important that data is vs getting your machine running again.
