I was in Microsoft Word for Mac, on my MacBook, went to save file to my flashdrive and then it froze!! It never did it before. I tried force quitting it, but it isnt doing anything. All I see on my screen is my MC document and the apple swirly icon (the circle with the colors).

Please help! I need this for school.
