Mac equivalent of Task Manager

Windows has the Task Manager, where you can see all currently running apps and processes, and safely shut them down if you wish. What is this called on the Mac side of things?

Hit Opt-Command-Esc all at once and get the Force Quit Application which shows running programs and you can force quit any of them.

Doug

Its called Activity Monitor and its in the utilities folder inside of the application folder.

Or just press command-shift-u in the finder and it'll go right to the folder

Have a look at iStat, maybe you like it...

It gives you all kinds of system related information in your menu bar and it's free/donationware...
