Exiting the Emulation
If you are running Amiga Forever for
Windows and are "trapped" in an Amiga emulation session you can
hold down the Escape key for one full second
to exit fullscreen mode, or to uncapture the
mouse. Then use the Amiga Forever player
controls to terminate the running instance.
On advanced configurations with mouse
integration enabled this is usually not
required, as the mouse can move in
and out of the emulation window.
The Workbench Quit Command
The Amiga Workbench Quit menu item by
itself is not needed to terminate the
The Amiga Workbench graphical
front-end provides access to disks and files, and is the screen where
system tools and other applications can open windows. This is the
Amiga equivalent of the Windows Desktop. Programs like Directory
Opus can completely replace the Workbench screen.
Normally, if you close the Workbench, and unless you have a Workbench
replacement or another program running on its own screen, you end
up with a blank screen, and no way to use the Amiga operating
system. As strange
as it may sound, the Amiga Workbench includes a Quit command,
which does exactly what it says: it closes the Workbench
front-end. This command does normally not shut down the Amiga (or, in the
emulation, quit the emulation). As of Amiga Forever 7, in
integrated configurations like Workbench 3.X the system was patched to
associate this command to the actual termination of the emulated system.
If you selected the Quit command on purpose (intending to close
the Workbench, rather than quitting the emulation) and saw a
message like "Cannot Quit yet, there are 3 WB launched program(s)",
this usually refers to the programs which were launched at startup
("System/WBStartup" directory) You can press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to open
Commodities Exchange and quit these programs.
