    Hello-

    I was trying to vnc to another machine and used the command + k button in finder then entered vnc://ip-address. I then got a login screen that will not go away. I attached the screen shot. I killed the screen sharing process, but still see the login. I have moved it to its own desktop in the mean time since it demands the focus on the screen.

    Does logging out (CMD+SHIFT+Q) or restarting help?

    thanks for reply. I was hoping to avoid losing any work spaces i may have. I will try this soon.

    If you save all your open documents and have the applications assigned to its Spaces, nothing will be lost.

    window is gone after restart. looks like only excel, browser, vmware machines, & cord rdp sessions are the only things that i had to startup again. my other work seems to be in place. Wouldn't have minded if my 50 finder windows would have closed. 8)

    thanks your time.

    To close all windows or tabs of one application, use CMD+OPTION+W.
