You know, any operating system always has its own task manager application. But they have a different name for each operating system, such as Task Manager in Windows, or Activity Monitor in Mac OS X.
With me, I always use a task manager program to force quit an application when it’s not responding to my action or command. That’s the only way you could stop the problem, instead of restart your computer.
But, do you know how to open task manager program on your computer, especially on your specific operating system? In Windows, it’s very easy to open the task manager by pressing a combination key: Ctrl + Alt + Del. However, in Mac, it’s a little bit complicated to launch Task Manager Mac application, to force quit a program on your Mac.
There are a few ways that allow you to launch the Mac Task Manager quicker, such as pressing a combination key or use Spotlight to call the Activity Monitor program. I am always using Spotlight to open the Activity Monitor, as well as many other programs on my Mac computer when I need one.
In order to call Spotlight, just press Command + Space and type the name of the program you want to launch.
