What version of macOS and Hazel are you using? Did you download Hazel from this site or some other one?

Latest macOS.
Hazel was downloaded from this site.
I was running it a while ago but uninstalled it.

Launch Console and try loading it again. Look for any error messages from System Preferences.

I don’t understand “launch console”.
This is the error I get when in system preferences.

Console is located in /Applications/Utilities. It shows the system logs. Once that is open, trigger the problem and look for anything related to System Preferences.

I would like to add to the discussion that I have intermittent problems with the Hazel Preference Pane refusing to close.

Hazel will still function and allow me to change rules, but when I go to close the Hazel Preference Pane, it will not let me leave. I have to Force Quit the System Preferences to make it close.

Happens approximately one out of three times I open it.

Do you have steps to replicate it on demand? Are you willing to collect some diagnostics that I can forward to Apple?
