Quick Force Quit

Want to quickly force-quit an application without bringing up the Force Quit window? Just hold down the Shift key and select the Apple menu. Instead of seeing Force Quit… you will see Force Quit followed by the current application name. It even works in the Finder to force quit the Finder when it becomes unresponsive.

    As an added note, if you hold Cmd-Option-Shift-Escape for ~5 seconds, the application will force quit. (I presume the ~5 second limit is in place so that you don’t accidently force quit an application.)
