How to Quit Mail, iTunes, Safari, or Any Other App When Even Force Quit Won’t Work

What do you do when an app refuses to freezes? First thing you have to try is force quitting an app.

How to Force Quit, option 1

  1. One way of doing that is doing a long press (or two-finger tap) on the app icon on the dock to make the contextual menu appear.
  2. Then you click force Quit or Force Quit.

What if an app won't force quit? What do you do?

How to Force Quit, option 2

Another is by on the application’s name in the menu bar on top right of the screen (to the right of the Apple logo ) and click Quit or Force Quit in the drop down menu.

But what if even force quitting doesn’t work? 

What the Mail app, Safari, or iTunes won’t quit even if you try to use the Force Quit? What if an app’s blue light just won’t go out?

Here’s another catch. When force quitting won’t quit an application, you can’t even shut down your computer (Apple logo  > Shut Down). And you get a message explaining why: The frozen app, Mail, Safari, or whatever, is stopping your computer from shutting down. Yes, you can’t even shut down your computer! Caramba!

What do you do? Find out how to force quit an app that won’t force quit to just flipping force quit, after the jump.

How to Show / Hide Bookmarks Bar in Safari in Mac OSX

Apple’s Safari is a nifty Web browser with a clean look, a nice RSS reader function, and powerful bookmarking options. One of the things I like is the convenient Bookmarks Bar (found right below the Address Bar) where you can add bookmarks that you can move around simply by dragging the bookmarks.

But have you ever looked at Safari and wondered where the Bookmarks Bar went?

Or do you have a Bookmarks Bar that you wished would disappear for whatever reason? Okay, so maybe Safari’s Bookmarks Bar does not appear or disappear randomly. However, you might want to show or hide it and you suddenly you can’t figure out how to.

The Bookmarks Bar is a useful feature of Safari. You can show or hide Safari's Bookmarks Bar in Mac OSX using the Mac toolbar or with a keyboard shortcut.
