Faster force quit and Logout options
Authored by: earlshango on Nov 17, '05 10:08:56AM

This doesn't seem to work for me anymore. (10.4.3) The shift key still dynamically changes the selection in the Apple menu, to "Force Quit Safari" for instance, but the shortcut doesn't actually do anything. All my other keyboard shortcuts still work.

Does anyone have the same problem, or know what's wrong? I want to find out if it's just me before I file a bug!

Yes, I have the same problem. Command-Options-Shift-Esc doesn't do anything but modify the menu item (well, that's just shift all by itself).

I filed a bug with Apple on this, and they told me to try holding down Cmd-Option-Shift-Esc for 5 seconds, and it works. (10.4.4)
