How to Force Quit Unresponsive Applications on Mac OS X

Oyetoke Tobi - Saturday, June 11, 2016

Have you ever encounter an unresponsive program when working on computers? Obviously all computer users would probably have encounter an unresponsive program while working either on Windows or Mac (and who hasn't?). This often happens when an error occurs in the program, not enough ram to execute or you open too many apps simultaneously. 

And as a Windows user, you’ve definitely used the Ctrl + Alt + Delete key combination to force quit an unresponsive program. 

However, Mac OSX doesn't use the typical Ctrl + Alt + Delete key combination together to Force Quit unresponsive programs. 

So if a program froze or becomes unresponsive on your new Mac, then you are in the right place to know how to force close it
.
Press the combination of Command + Option + Esc buttons on the keyboard to launch the Force Quit Applications window.

Then select the program you would like to quit and click on “Force Quit” button.



As an alternative, you can click on the Apple logo at the top left corner, and then click on Force Quit from the drop-down menu that appears.
