My Minecraft screen went black and I can't click the X button. There's no way I can get rid of the window. I'm using a Mac. I've even tried deleting Minecraft but it didn't work.

  • Sounds like you need to force quit the program. If this works, I'll make an answer out of it. Click the Apple in the top left, navigate to Force Quit, select Minecraft, and click Force Quit. Jul 21, 2016 at 18:12

The answer is pretty simple, you have black screen probably because Minecraft got freezed or stopped working, all you have to do, is click three buttons; command (the one right next to space), alt, and escape, then you should get a little window which says "Force Quit Applications", you should see all programs that are running, click Minecraft, then Force Quit, confirm that, and you're done! It worked for me.
