Dear PC Doctor:
Is there a way to force quit programs that won’t close on a Mac? I used to have an HP laptop and it was Control-Alt-Delete. Now I have a Mac and I realize I don’t know how to do it. Last night, some programs froze and the only way I had to get out of them was to shut down the computer. Are there keyboard commands like that for Apple?
Yes! If programs on your Mac freeze and won’t respond, you can hold down three keys at the same time to get them to force quit. They are: Option, Command, and Escape.
Until next time,
