Mac Tip: How to get rid of a malicious webpage or a “frozen” program


If you ever face a malicious web page with a threatening message that does not want to disappear, here’s what you can do: click the following keys on your keyboard one after another and keep them pressed until the menu appears: Command-Option-Esc. Or click on the Apple menu, then Force Quit.

As in the image above, find your browser in the list, Safari, Google Chrome or Firefox and click on it once, then the “Force Quit” button. This same maneuver can also be used for programs that do not respond when you see the rainbow pinwheel.
