Force Quitting Applications with the Process Manager

Another feature that’s sometimes necessary when using applications is Force Quit, which exits a program that has stopped responding. In Mac OS X, the Option+Command+Esc keystroke brings up a process manager that contains a list of running applications. Applications that the system deems to have stopped responding are marked in red. To force an application to close, choose it in the list and click the Force Quit button.

Forcing an application to quit does not save any open documents. Be sure that the application is truly stalled, not just busy, before you use this feature.
