Can't seem to get to work.
What might I be doing wrong, please, as usual ?
I have a bunch of icons in the Dock, many of which have the dot underneath them.
My understanding is that this means they are running.
I created the Automator with the Quit All Applications (selected and moved to right hand pane.)
Then did a SAVE. Would like to Quit their running, all of them, with a simple click on the desktop icon for this app that I now have.
When i click on the desktop icon for it, nothing opens or changes.
Those dots are still there.
There is however a spinning gear icon in the upper bar.
Will try to show it below. [it says: 0% completed (Quit All Applications)]
What am I likely not doing, or doing incorrectly ?
OK, earlier I did it successfully on my Mac Book Air. But for my Mac Mini, I was skipping part of one important piece: double click. I was forgetting to do that. But I then followed the instructions more closely, and it works.
As I stated, I followed the original instructions to the letter on my Mac Book Air, and it worked right away. But on my Mac Min i, the first time I tried, I did not double click where it says "Quit all applications". But after reading the op's post, I tried it again, and this time followed the instructions to the letter. It then worked.
