Automator: How quickly to close all started applications on macOS


Many heard about such utility as Automator, however not everyone knows about its real opportunities. At first sight the program is rather difficult in development, however having understood, it is possible to see that management happens quite intuitively and visually. On the example of this article we will tell how to create process which will allow to complete automatically the work of all applications opened in a system.

Unlike Windows, operation of application on macOS in most cases is not completed on pressing "cross". Each program needs to be closed independently using the menu or Dock, or applying a combination of the Command Q keys. When often it is necessary to perform this procedure, it can take away a lot of time. Fortunately, there is a simple and laconic solution of this problem. By means of a simple script and "Automator" we will be able to complete the work of all programs literally in one click. What for this purpose is necessary? First of all it is necessary to start the Automator application in any convenient way. In the opened window we choose type of the document "Program". We choose "Library". We find a row in a column "To finish all programs" and we add to the right part of the application. If necessary it is possible to specify the list of programs exceptions which will not come to the end at activation of a script. For this purpose it is necessary to choose the option "Add" It was necessary to pass into the menu panel, to give the name to our small utility and to keep it on a desktop or in any other place. Everything is ready! Now at start of our script, all programs will be automatically unloaded from memory. If necessary this utility can be moved to "Applications" or to place directly in the Dock panels.
