    Sometimes a program you are using will get stuck. You can't do anything with it. You can't even close it. Ahhh! What can you do? ... ... ...
    Do this:
  • 1. Right-click in a blank space on the taskbar.
  • 2. Choose "Task Manager" from the menu.

  • 3. If Task Manager only has a few items listed like the picture below, you may need to click on the "More details" at the bottom.

  • 4. Single-click on the program that is stuck. (A single click will highlight the program.)
  • 5. Now click on the "End task" button in the lower right.

  • 6. Some systems may ask you if you really want to end the task. Just say "yes". Then close Task Manager and go on about your business.
    John 19:28-30
    Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty."
    A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips.
    When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
