    There is no option in Terminal in Mac to right click and shutdown all the other windows of the terminal. When I hit 'Quit' for the terminal and I start up terminal again it opens up all the other terminal windows that were open when I hit 'Quit'. How do I turn this off?

    Terminal works the same as other apps. That is, hold down the OPTION/ALT modifier key, then quit.

    If you hold down OPTION/ALT and look in the Terminal menu, you'll see the "Quit" item change.

    You can also disable this across all apps from System Preferences (although I'm not at my Mac right now so can't give specific instructions).
