On occasion, a program or application you're working on will freeze up, and you will no longer be able to work with it. On a Windows computer, you would have to use Task Manager to forcibly quit the program. In this movie, you will know how to shut down a frozen application on a mac computer by using the Force Quit function either from the dock or from the apple menu.
- [Voiceover] Have you ever been working…on a program on a Windows PC when all of a sudden…it stops responding, it's frozen.…You can't even go up to the file menu…to choose exit, or click the close button…in the top right corner of the window.…Nothing works, and it's frozen on your screen.…In those instances, you would typically…go to the task manager,…you'd launch that, get in there,…look at a list of programs that are running…you'd see the one that's not responding…and quit it from there.…Of course, if you hadn't saved changes…that you'd made in the file,…you'd lose those changes,…well, you're on a Mac, it happens far less often…than it does on a Windows PC.…
But, when it does, there is an option,…it's easier than accessing something like Task Manager…to forcibly quit an application.…We're going to explore that now,…so first we need to open up some applications.…Let's go to the Finder menu, click go,…and under Applications,…let's go to one that everyone is going to have,…how about Stickies.…It's an app for writing sticky notes,…
