Due to interference of an extension or an application, Safari can remain unresponsive for a long time. As a result, it refuses to close the normal way. In a chain reaction, all controls are paralyzed, and there are no responses from the browsers.
To bypass the unresponsive state, one has to “Force Quit” Safari.
Here’s a step-by-step guide for both Mac and Windows users.
For launching the “Force Quit Applications” window, go ahead and press the “Command-Option-Esc” keys.
Or else, you can click on the Apple logo from the menu bar.
Select “Force Quit.”
Click the “Force Quit” button.
Finally, you have to click the “Force Quit” button once more to close down Safari when “Do you would wish to force Safari to quit?” shows up on the screen.
To launch the Task Manager, right-click the taskbar.
Click “Start Task Manager.”
To display a list of the running processes, click the “Processes” tab.
Click “Show processes from all users.”
To show the processes for all the accounts on your computer, enter your Administrator Password.
Scroll down and click “Safari.exe.”
Click “End Process” to shut down Safari entirely.
