Yesterday we posted a how-to article about closing all windows in 1 click. It had great feedback, so we decided that an option had to be out there for Mac OSX, as some of our users are running Mac laptops, etc.
There is a solution, just like the windows solution, a small program that needs to be installed and run. The program is called Quit All.
How to install Quit All and run
- Download the DMG file
- Run the DMG file like installing all other applications.
- Once the application is in your applications folder (or folder of your preference), run it. Don’t worry, it will not quit all right away.
- Right click on the icon in your dock, and highlight “options” and click on “keep in dock“
- Now you have quit all right on your dock for anytime you need it, I have kept it in my Mac’s dock for when I leave to go home, I find it useful when restarting from sleep as any programs that require more memory are now not running.
I have used this application myself a few times, and it does come in handy! Of course any unsaved documents / files will ask for you to save. I have also used this for those frustrating moments where my computer is acting laggy, and I just wish everything was closed so I can restart only the applications I need.
If you are looking for a Microsoft Windows alternative to this program, check out our post from yesterday on how to quit all applications in 1 click.
