For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II, Mini vMac

A Macintosh is very easy to use, but nevertheless there are naive users who don't understand anything about processes etc. All they see is windows on the screen, and to stop working they just close the window using the close box. But this leaves the application open, which can lead to confusion on one side, and on a shortage of memory on the other side. Quit It can take away this problem: whenever the last window of an application is closed using the close box, it will quit the application. That's all there is to it.

You can specify settings for a total of 100 applications, plus default settings for all other applications. The settings include:
1) Should Quit It be active for this application.
2) Should Quit It ask for a confirmation before quitting the application.
3) Should Shift-Close overrule Quit It's behavior (and thus give the standard behavior).
4) Should an application be closed after all windows are closed, or after the last window having a closebox is closed. This last option can come in handy with programs who have some kind of toolbar (like WordPerfect 3.0 and Excel).
The preferences are stored in a file named 'QuitIt prefs' in the Preferences folder.
