Is there any way to make photoshop display a warning before quitting? The 'W' is right next to the 'Q' on the keyboard, so when I have a lot of documents open and want to just close one of them, I sometimes accidentally hit command Q for quit instead of W for close window... :/ And with no quit warning, photoshop just closes everything instantly. All the documents were opened from different folders (where they need to be) so it takes forever to go through and open them all again. It's very frustrating, to say the least. Is there anything I can do to stop this happening, beyond always keeping a random unsaved document open to force a warning? I'd appreciate any pointers...

Hi Lana,

I am not aware of a way to get Photoshop to warn you before quitting if you have no unsaved documents open.

Have you considered removing or changing the Command/CTRL+Q keyboard shortcut?

Thanks for the advice! I asked my dad about this problem earlier this afternoon and he told me how to do change that shortcut, so hopefully I won't have this problem again.

Thank you for your reply!
