I have intelliJ 15 running on OSX Yosemite.

Is there a keyboard shortcut to close projects in intellij?

Right now I can close individual files in a project with cmd+w and and close the entire app with cmd+q, I can even tab between projects with cmd+~ but I'd like to close a project using the keyboard.

  • thanks @DavidPostill but perhaps there is a workaround? Maybe a separate tool or app I could use? – ThinkBonobo Dec 17 '15 at 18:53
  • See my answer. How to add your own shortcut. – DavidPostill Dec 17 '15 at 18:58

Is there a keyboard shortcut to close projects in intellij (OSX)?

No. There isn't one listed on the IntelliJ IDEA Mac OS X Keymap Reference Card.

However, you can define your own:

Go to Preference -> Keymap, type Close Project in search bar and set-up your keyboard shortcut for this action. Works for me in Intellij Idea 14.1.2.
