    Have installed the necessary module?

    Get-Module -Name Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell -ListAvailable | Select Name,Version

    If you can't locate the module, try installing it:

    Install-Module -Name Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell

    Hi @Jijesh Peter,

    Thank you for posting in this community.

    According to your detailed description, I do understand how frustrated you are now.

    However, I feel regretful to inform you that SharePoint Online Management Shell does not yet work from a Mac. The reason is that SharePoint Online Management Shell is a Windows PowerShell module.

    Perhaps you could try using PnP PowerShell to connect to SharePoint Online.

    However, to use PnP PowerShell on a Mac, you need to install Homebrew first, then PowerShell, and finally PnP PowerShell.
