I have been using AutoHotKey for many years, and I never thought until today to map
Windows+Q to quit the active app and close the active window. That creates something very similar to Mac’s
Command+Q shortcut to Windows.
The default Windows keyboard shortcut for quitting an app is
Alt+F4, which is a two hand operation for me. Note that in AutoHotKey, you don’t even need to send that key command; you can use the WinClose function instead:
#q:: WinClose, A Return
One of the best things Apple has ever done with their support of keyboard shortcuts was to pretend that function keys (
F12) don’t exist.
