Pressing COMMAND+W or CTRL+W does not close every window that has a close box, as the ESC key does.
For example, clicking the close box or choosing Close from the File menu in a screen, menu, or report invokes the following dialog box if any changes were made:
Pressing COMMAND+W or CTRL+W immediately saves any changes and closes the file, bypassing the "Do you want to save changes?" dialog box. If a new report or screen is being created, a second "Save Environment?" dialog box will appear regardless of the method used to close the file.
Do you want to save changes to XXX.SCX? Yes No Cancel
However, if COMMAND+W or CTRL+W is pressed in other windows, such as the Debug window, a character will appear in the window and the window will remain open.
This behavior is by design. The intent of the COMMAND+W or CTRL+W key combination is to allow you to bypass the "Do you want to save changes?" dialog box. This key combination cannot be used to close windows that do not invoke this dialog box.
