    I just found this out by accident :clap:
    If you right click an app in your dock you can press your Option (Alt) key to show different functions. In this case Force Quit (instead of Quit) and Hide Others (instead of Hide).

    I never knew this :confused:

    2 more tips

    - If you have an application that cant open a file - you can FORCE it to try by dragging the file to the icon whilst holding Command and Alt.

    - If you Command click an icon, it reveals the app in the finder!

    I didn't know that force open yet :)
    Oh and Cmd Alt Esc opens a Force Quit list but you probably already knew that one...
