Quit and Force Quit ApplicationsBlack Hole can quit any number of applications with a single click on the "Clean" button. If an application fails to quit after a set amount of time, Black Hole can force quit it for you.
Clear Recent Items in Your AppsUsing this option you can clear recent items from the File > Open Recent menu of most applications. Black Hole comes with a default set of rules, or you can create your own.
Empty the TrashEmptying the trash is a matter of seconds, even if the files inside it are locked.
Unmount VolumesBlack Hole is able to unmount volumes from your Mac, be it a Mac or Windows share, a USB key, an external hard drive, or a mounted disk image file (.dmg and others). This is invaluable if you store confidential information in encrypted disk images, etc.
