Exiting a Program

When you finish working in a program, close it to free system memory. (Your system memory is the working area of the computer where data and programs are stored temporarily while you are working within the program and on a document.) Too many open programs can tax your system’s memory and slow the computer’s processes.

First, save your work. (Saving is the topic of the next chapter.) Once your work is saved, you can use one of several methods to close a program:

  • Click File and then click the Exit command. The program closes.

  • Click the Close button for the program window.

  • Press Alt+F4.
