Arrow Starting/Restarting a daemon

Folks - Trying to make my samba network perform properly, I edit my smb.conf,(using sudo gedit)and save the result. But I believe the changes do not take effect without rebooting. In general, after making any routine or configuration file changes with a text editor, how do I cause them to take effect after the edits are saved?
