03-17-2011, 08:46 AM #1Closing all applications in unison
Not a new switcher - been a Mac user for over 3 years but never as usual sure of the right forum to post on re the topic?
Knowing how important it is to install updates I try to do so when prompted, (missing plug-in in mail now the issue - updates did not help) since I usually have quite a few applications open 24/7 though, such as Photoshop and Illustrator and several others, and it seems to take f-o-r-e-v-e-r to get them all to close one by one, I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a command or keyboard shortcut anything that will allow me to close all apps simultaneously without the toe tapping ad nauseum wait.
It actually puts me off installing the updates sometimes as I just can't sit around staring at the monitor for that long.
Thank you and Happy St. Patrick's Day.
FYI - They don't wear green on St. Paddy's day in Ireland, wonder why they do it here?

Just keep your finger on command and keep tapping Q until they are all closed........ takes less than 3 seconds with 10+ apps open!

I think Ctrl +Q works in Windows too
