    I'm looking for a program or tweak that will allow me to close programs. I'm coming from POS, and i'm use to the programs closing rather then minimizing. I've tried HTC's X-button and i wasn't able to get it to work. I know there are some third party software out there but i only want one function, to close programs, nothing else.

    Here's a link to the HTC X-button I was referring to:

    check out magic bar. works pretty damn good for me. It also lets you switch between open programs.

    Wisbar lite; hitting "okay" minimizes, holding okay closes.

    Wisbar is a great task manager, robust which makes 1st time config a little tough- but otherwise just plain awesome.

    AE Pro is also a nice program and works perfect for me!

    AE Button is what I am using. Again, a little tough to config at first, but there is a lot of options.

    Just use the built-in task manager (option-OK).

    It's not fast enough. I want to be able to close programs without having to run through steps.

    I just installed AEButton and i'm impressed. You guys mind sharing your settings?
    Within 5 minutes of playing, i found it easy to set
    (OK): ALT-F4 (application switcher)
    Option+(OK): task manager (AE version)

    Option button is on the left side of keyboard (third one down, or the left of Z key).

    I tried Option+OK, but it didn't seem to make a difference. It still left programs up and hidden. I would have been ok with that solution if I could get it to work.

    there's a freeware app called "zap it!" that u can install and assign as your OK button--it'll close the app u are in when u hit ok...

    i'd look it up but i'm mobile/lazy right now ;-)

    While respectful of your "one function" criteria I'd suggest you consider Magic Button. http://www.trancreative.com/mb.aspx

    It offers both a close & a minimize button for applications. And it allows you set the default "OK/Close" action for each application.

    It also includes and *optional*, but very useful task switcher (optionally on the carrier line!), a "close all non-active" programs command, and a soft reset option. All of which you can turn off or ignore if you really only want a close only solution.

    It's an amazing utility. And oh yeah... it's free.

    Respectfully, Cedar

    Great little app but I'm not sure why somebody would need to close an app with all the memory free?

    No need to press the option button. Just press and hold the OK button, and it will launch task manager.

    This is what I use on the Mogul but I read it has resolution issue with the 800w.

    QMenu does work on the 800, BUT there are some slight resolution issues. a few of the tiny icons are screwed up, but it is completely useable.

    I've been using to close the open apps, but I would still like an "X closes the app button" kind of thing.

    QuickMenu has a setting for "OK closes application." I use that if I want to close an application and just switch to another application using the start menu when I want it to stay open.
