Solaris Common Desktop Environment: User's Guide

To Close a Terminal Window

    Type exit at the command line and press Return.

    Or, choose Exit from the Terminal Window menu.

    Or, choose Close from the Window menu (displayed through the button at the upper left of the window frame).

Note -

Typing exit at the command line is the preferred method of closing a Terminal window. The other two methods don't terminate any background processes you may have started, which can sometimes cause problems.

If you started the Terminal window from a command line, you can stop it by pressing Control+C in the window from which you started it.
