How do you force quit a program on a MAC OS? I don't want to restart as my boss has open docs he needs saved. Also the computer may have to be restarted because the colour wheel isn't moving. Any ideas? Need an answer ASAP!

THANKS!!

In OSX ten, it's the same keys as OS9. Aple+Option+escape, and select the app you want to force quit in the pop-up box. Or, select the program item in teh dock, and press the option key, (the middle one of the three to the left of the space bar) the quit menu item will now change to Force quit.

If the application has stopped responding, you probably have lost any open documents in that particular app. Force quit kills that app, but should leave everthing else untouched.

LOL Thanks for the in depth response Tim. I looked it up on the internet while waiting for a response but the entire computer crashed so in the end I was forced to reboot(sucks). ( I work on a PC and had to do some MAC to PC file transfers) It has truely been too long since I used a MAC OS and had forgotten.
Thanks and Cheers.
