"Quit Kernel" under the drop-down menu under "Kernel " on the tool bar, and
then clicking on "Local."  You can then restart the kernel by clicking on
"Start Kernel" on the same drop-down menu, and then clicking on "Local"

Hello everybody!

I have been working for some time with Mathematica, but I don't seem to find
how can someone can start a new Mathematica session without exiting the 
program. What I want is to be able to clear all of the variables and their 
definitions at the same time and so be able to start a new session. In other

programs that can be done (i.e. Clear All etc.). Can such a 
thing be done with mathematica, or everytime you want to "clear the kernel" 
from all its variable you must exit the program and start it over again?

I haven't been able to locate this kind of information anywhere (even the 
Mathematica book) and so I would highly appreciate it if someone could help 
me. I should also note that I am using Mathematica v.4.
