Force Quit an Application

When an application stalls while you are working in it:
  1. First, be patient.
  2. After patience, if you need to Force Quit, open the Force Quit window.
  3. Apple-Option-Escape
  4. Select the application that is stalled, and click Force Quit.
  5. Then re-launch the application.
Force Quit fixes most cases of a stalled application. Almost NEVER is a restart of the computer required.
