    I apologize if this topic has already been addressed, but I couldn't find it in the first few pages...

    I don't like this new "Resume" feature that they've implemented.

    For example, if I'm viewing a .pdf file, I close Preview from the dock, and it closes the window. And then when I double click on another .pdf file later, it opens the file, plus opens the last file that I had open!!

    I can see how this might be nice if Safari crashes or something, but is there any way to turn it off? I didn't find it in the settings.

    I am using cmd-w right before cmd-q. Not sure if I will leave it or turn it off. I could see where it would be helpful but I also think it may be a pain. Not sure yet.

    The top rated comment was very useful. Allows you to keep the Resume feature but without the annoyance.

    I was bothered by this as well, so I turned off the 'resume' feature in general settings within 'System Preferences'. It is great to know that Option-Command-Q does the trick as well. Thanks!
