Dosbox Emulator FAQ: How to Close or Exit Dosbox

Author: Glenn Scrima

So you finally got your favorite game running and after a long session of replaying old memories you are ready to call it a night. After quitting the game, you're back at the C:\> prompt in Dos and quickly get frustrated with the archaic interface and use the tried and true CTRL-ALT-DEL. Although that method works there is a command to use to quickly exit Dosbox and its even quicker then the CTRL-ALT-DEL method. When you are back at the command prompt simply type "exit" and press enter.


That's all there is to it have fun gaming!

Thank you so much for your instructions, I wouldn't be able to have downloaded Willy Beamish without them. If you could just help with one more thing, how do I save while in the game?

You could also press "Ctrl + F9" to terminate DOSBox too, even while the game you playing is still running.
