Thanks. Actually I got most of the way there. I just added FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken["FrontEndQuit"]]; to the end of the function I wanted to run, then added a menu bar item to run the function. E.g. to ...\SystemFiles\FrontEnd\TextResources\Windows\MenuSetup.tr I added: Item["Exit", KernelExecute[Get["CustomFunction`"]], MenuEvaluator->Automatic] I would like to place the menu item over on the right, under the window-close button on the frame. I tried Alignment->Right but it won't budge. Any suggestions? Szabolcs Horv=E1t wrote: > Chris Degnen wrote: > > > Hi.
