Warning before closing winuae?

Hi, is it possible to have a warning before closing winuae?
I have tried to find a setting for it but can't find it.

It does not exist, I hate all kinds of enabled by default confirmation screens

I can add new misc panel option that opens confirmation window if active emulation window close button is clicked or alt+f4 pressed.

That would be nice
I run an BBS in winuae and have closed it down a couple of times by mistake, almost always if I had viewed a picture in fullscreen and as a MS windows user I is click the X to close the picture, then I have closed down the bbs and winuae...

I've set up my WinUAE configurations to use the "Ctrl+F11" combo to quit, and if you condition yourself to close the Amiga that way, you'll soon not close it by mistake.

I think you've completely missed the point Foebane

lindman is not trying to close WinUAE, read his post above yours again...

Sorry, I thought he was using the BBS on WinUAE and viewing pictures using a separate Windows app, and he clicked on the wrong X in the corner.

Good idea, it happens that involuntarily closes WinUAE especially when start two WinUAE for a comparison and close the wrong one.

Yes this is a good idea. Option to turn close confirmation on, default is off
