If it it does not start responding within 5 minutes, you will have to force quit; be warned that this will lose any unsaved data. For this reason make sure that you save early and often. You can take a screen shot (command+shift+3) to remember any unsaved work you were doing in Photoshop if you have to force quit. To force quit, you can either right click on Photoshop on your tool bar and click “Force Quit” or press the esc key.
