For OS 10...from the apple menu you can click on force quit or from the keyboard...
alt/option + apple/command
and push esc.
OS9... I don't have a clue
Our lab Mac G3,OS9 has lots of images stored on it....because of which it freezes very often. It has a science research software installed---which we use for taking pics....i am not sure of the extension (the software is called Quantity One....but the images are quite big..each is like 3MB.
Now, whenever a windows PC freezes one has to hit the Ctrl+Alt+Del buttons and one can select and end the problematic program from the task manager list.
I was wondering if anything like that exists for Macs??
Or do i have to hit the power switch ON/OFF button everytime(which is what i have been doing all these days!!)
Also , is there a keyboard shortcut for 'quickstarting' the OS.....like in the same OS9,G3 system...it takes like 30 mins to start up and another 15 mins before the cursor can be moved. Does 'Apple+X" combination mean---quick start ??
Thanks for reading till the end;-)
