Sometimes I'm way too fast for my accuracy, and hit Apple-Q instead of Apple-W. Then all 25 IE windows I had carefully opened are "outa here."

Do I correctly recall there's an easy fix to disable the keyboard command for QUIT... without having to buy a full commercial software package?

Any help?

BTW: I need this to work on 9.1

XXX OOO to all you helpful guys!

open a copy of the application up with resedit and select the MENU resource. open the file menu (ID 257) and click on the quit menu item. change the command key to something else or leave it blank. save and you're finished.
