Peek-a-Boo Processes Menu
You can use the Process menu in two ways:
- Use the Processes menu in the menu bar.
- Use the popup Processes menu in the main Peek-a-Boo window. If you click a process and hold the mouse button down
while not moving the mouse for a moment, the Process menu appears right under your cursor. Also, holding down the option
key while clicking on a process brings up the Process popup menu instantaneously.
Both ways of bringing up the Processes menu have the same options.
- Launch Process shows a dialog where you can choose an application to launch. This can be used to
launch the Finder, or startup-time background-only applications (of type 'appe'), for example.
- Bring to Front makes the selected process the frontmost application. Clicking on that process's
icon or radio button will also bring it to the front.
- Kill Process sends a 'quit' Apple Event to the selected process, terminating it.
- Hide Process hides all the windows of the selected process.
- Reveal in Finder opens the window in Finder where that program is.
- CPU% History opens a CPU history window of the selected process.
- Logging allows you to open a logging window for the selected process.
- Normal, High, Medium, and Low refer to the
Special Technology priority settings.
