    Should mention that Safari has been "stalled" for 2 hours now. Went to open an email to print out flight info and it stopped.

    The icon at the bottom does nothing, the top left "close/minimize/maximize" do nothing.

    When I figure out what buttons those are...

    Command I assume is the "4 sided infinity" (best way to describe what it looks like next to space bar) I think???

    Ahh, cool...thanks Steve.

    Worked already. Didn't realize the buttons actually said command, option and escape...

    Edit:
    Should add...not my computer. The owner of said computer has never read the manual for it... :wacko:

    This, besides Ipad/Ipod, is the first Apple computer in the house.

    I've never used an Apple product full time. I listened to music via CrackBerry and Android...so I haven't even had an iPod. Use Itunes on a PC...but synced it into CrackBerry...then into Spotify(which made it so much easier).

    So yea, I know "Apple processes are the right way"...but when you've been used to the wrong way...

    By the way, my first computer was a Kaypro "trans"-portable back in 1987. And oh yeah. My computer was a hit on my dorm floor. IT had twin floppies( :D ) and the printer could finish a 10-page paper on "fine" by the time you were back from dinner...

    I had a Commodore 64 in college in 1983-86, and an Olivetti Ink Jet printer that only printed 7x7 characters. Still, I used it for papers, and would not have survived a technical writing class without it.

    When I was a junior/senior, we had a computer resource center with PC's and Mac's. The Macs had a networked laser printer. That is where I did my cover letters and resumes. I've been a Mac guy since early on.

    I had a Tandy TRS 80 with cassette drive. All it basically would do was Q Basic and calculator functions.
    I remember playing around with the Apple II and the MacIntosh at a mall when they only had green
    text screens and thinking why would anyone need more than 128K of memory.

    The mall store where I worked had an Apple IIe, an Atari 800, a Macintosh, and an IBM PC Jr (which at one point I sold). They sold software for all this and Commodore. Our big competition was Toys'R'Us, but where they offered prices, we offered the ability to test out software before you bought it. I worked there in 1985.

    Other methods to force quit are:Click and hold on the dock icon. A Force Quit option will appear after a few seconds. Option-click the icon to get to the Force Quit optionRun Activity Manager and kill Safari from within that. :)

    Force Quit is also available always from the Apple menu (top left).

    So many ways to kill applications, so little time... :)
