    CMD ALT ESC I think or you can hold down alt and right click on it in the dock to force close it

    Right click the app in the dock and 'force quit' or you can also do it via the top left Apple icon (where system info, sleep, log off, shutdown etc.. are)

    Command+Option+Escape is by far the easiest way though imo.
