Close Many Applications At Once
In Windows 2000/XP/2003, how can I close many applications at-once?
When you’re done working on your computer for the day, you probably close each open application one-by-one. If so, chances are that you’ve wished that you could close all you open applications at the same time.
To do so, hold down the [Ctrl] key and click on each application button on your taskbar. When you do, you’ll notice that each button remains selected.
Once you’ve selected all the application buttons on the taskbar, right-click on any one of them and select the Close Group command from the shortcut menu. When you do, all your applications will close.
If you have any application in which an open file hasn’t yet been saved, that application will prompt you to save the file.
