Note: In Mac OS 10.2 and earlier, the Activity Monitor was called the Process Viewer and was also located in the Utilities folder.

To ensure that an Adobe application has enough system resources, use the Activity Monitor to quit processes that use more than 30% of the system resources.

  1. Choose Go > Utilities.
  2. Double-click Activity Monitor.
  3. Choose View > Update Frequency > Less Often (5 Sec).
  4. Select each process that uses more than 30% of the CPU, and click Quit Process.

The Adobe Captivate demonstration below illustrates how to free up system resources using the Activity Monitor. For more information about viewing this demo, see Viewing Adobe Captivate Demos in Knowledgebase Documents (TechNote kb403894).
