    Does a public corporation like Apple or McDonald's dissolve if one person owns 100% of the shares? Just curious because the whole point of a corporation is that the shareholders have voting rights for company decisions and there wouldn't be any voting rights if there was a just a single shareholder. Thanks.

    no, they would have to choose to dissolve it if that's something they'd even want to do

    It's possible, depends on what the shareholder thinks. When a person buys all shares of a public company, it becomes private and cannot be traded on the stock market, as the definitions of "public" and "private" implied. So you can say the public firm has "dissolved".
