@abatch13 you should close origin if you don't see "origin client". Everything else will be the same steps though. Hope that helps

I restarted my Mac and this fixed the issue. Logging out and logging back in didn’t seem to do it but resetting it did. I had already deleted and re-installed Origin so that might have had something to do with it but I think restarting it fixed it for me.
