I found the one that shuts down the computer quickly by accident. I had the
help keys on going through those keys trying to figure everything out. I
thought maybe the mute key had been activated, then I realized the computer
had been shut down. I am in the process of trying to install Adobe Flash
Player, but it doesn't seem to be taking. At one time I had about three
flash player installers on the computer *LOL*. Then I got it narrowed down
to one. However, when I go to the html window I make my selection and then I
click next and nothing seems to be happening. I could have kicked myself one
time. I waited and waited, I hit the next button a few times without any
success. So, after a while I decide to shut down the window and it quits but
not before telling me that Adobe was 90% installed. I have found the force
shut down keys to if a program is not responding.

Command q.  Command w closes windows sometimes, command q the app, don't
need vo keys for everything there are key commands universal to mac as well.
Control option command eject for example is a fast way to power off your
machine.  Handy if a storm is coming up fast.  I know those don't happen
often where you live, but lightning where you live can reach fast.  That
avoids the dialogs etc.  If your phone is hooked on the machine at same time
you will hear it blip as it switches over to battery power and that is a
good confirmation that the machine is off, besides the lack of VO and the
click on your volume controls of course.

Hey Tom,

   I know that pressing VO keys and I believe shift with the letter q or
just VO keys and the q key shuts down the programs, but it shuts down
everything including voiceover. Is there a way to close out programs without
shutting down voiceover?
