As in one click to close all apps on Mac

Many Mac users know that clicking the Close button usually closes the app itself. The user must explicitly exit the program after using it in order not to waste computer resources.

For those who have no time to do this with every app, there is a solution in the form of a standard utility Automator, which allows you to automate some routine operations. In particular, it can help you one click to close all running applications, thereby saving time and resources Mac.

Step 1: Launch Automator from the list of applications on your Mac.

Step 2: In the window type selection for a document, specify a “Program” and click “Choose”.

Step 3: In the sidebar under Libraries, select “Terminate all programs” and drag it to an empty workspace on the right.

Step 4: the Automator will load the action selected in the working window. Here you can choose which programs to ignore when closing.

Step 5: Go to the menu bar and click “File” –> “Save”.

Step 6: name your new applet, for example “Close all” and select the folder to save. Then click on the “Save”button.

Run the created application. After running all running programs should immediately be closed.

This method is convenient to use in the end of the day. As you can see, nothing complicated in creating their own mini-programs on a Mac no. For convenience, the application shortcut to “Close all” can be added to your desktop.
