I just updated Trim Enabler after updating my Mac to OS X 10.8.5. The new version doesn't have a quit button, option or anything like that. How do I close it? I cannot remove it from the menu bar by dragging it. What can I do, short of rebooting?

  • You mean you want to close that window! – Ruskes Sep 14 '13 at 16:40

You can press ⌘ cmd + Q when the app (actually, the menu) is opened, according to an official answer from this blog post.

You can use AppleScript to send the application a quit Apple event:

osascript -e 'quit app "Trim Enabler"'

Quit Apple events are also used by loginwindow to quit non-Cocoa applications when you log out.

If that doesn't work, killall Trim\ Enabler is probably also safe. It sends the process a TERM signal, which usually allows a process to terminate cleanly.
