Because of this, you should be prepared to encounter a situation in macOS when an app has become unresponsive, blocking your access to the program’s contents and features and leaving you with nothing but a spinning beachball to show for your time and effort.
If the beachball remains for more than a few minutes and the app’s UI is unresponsive, it is likely that the software has crashed and needs to be forced to quit and restarted to see if you can resume working from where you left off and perhaps avoid more crashes. Learn the steps here.
Method 1: Force Quitting an App
If the app is misbehaving, you can force quit it by right-clicking its Dock icon while holding down the Option key.
Method 2: How to Force Close an App
One of the more natural ways to close an unresponsive programme is with the help of a second option.
Choose Apple from the top menu.
To end the session abruptly, click the “Force Quit” button.
shutdown Mac OS X 1 with a forceful click
To close an application, just click its icon. The “Not Responding” label will appear next to any app that is currently unresponsive.
Select the offending programme, then tap the Force Quit button to terminate it.
Cancel Mac OS X version 2 with a force quit
The alternative is to press Command + Option + Escape simultaneously, which will bring up the Force Quit programmes interface.
Method 3: Forcibly Closing an App
Using Activity Monitor, you may also force-quit errant programmes on your Mac. It’s in the Applications folder, under the Utility subfolder.
The primary window displays a list of all open applications and background processes on your Mac. The sequence is very inconsistent, as you can see. That’s because the list is refreshed every five seconds to reflect the most recent data available for each app.
Choose the programme or process you wish to end from the list under “Process Name.” In order to locate the offending programme or process, you may either use the Search field in the top right corner of the window or by clicking Process Name in the column header to sort the results alphabetically. Take note that a process is marked as unresponsive when (Not Responding).
First, highlight the desired application or process, and then use the Activity Monitor’s Stop (X) button.
Choose either Quit (functioning similarly to the app’s File > Quit) or Force Quit to terminate the current process immediately.
Keep in mind that you can lose information if you force shut the programme or process if it is currently using any files.
Don’t forget to consider the potential consequences for other programmes and processes that rely on the one you just terminated abruptly.
It isn’t much you can do to get your work back from the crashed app if it hasn’t been saved recently, either manually or automatically.
