From time to time, I check the Force Quit option under the Apple menu and am surprised to see Apps listed that I was sure I quit. Just today I checked it on my older (High Sierra) Mac and it showed PanX. Usually if an App is running, it’s icon shows a dot under it (in Monterey at least) or the icon shows on the right side of the tray.
The last time I ran PanX on the old mini was weeks ago. Has it be running in the background all this time?
I’m guessing that closing all the windows doesn’t always close the app. But I’m old school so I’m pretty much used to Quitting under the App Name menu. But I’m old so maybe I forget and just close windows. Could be a bad habit from that “other” Windows environment.
If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around does it make a sound?
If an app is “closed” but still appears in the Force Quit list, is it still running?
