Make Terminal close the window if the shell exited cleanly

I was tired of closing the Terminal window, every time after typing exit. Luckily, there is a way to make Terminal close the window, if the shell exited cleanly.

When you open Terminal, you can change your preferences by going to: Terminal Preferences | Settings | Shell | When the shell exitst to either:

  • Close the window
  • Close if the shell exited cleanly
  • Do not close the window

By default it is set to Do not close the window.

Bonus tip: hit Ctrl + D instead of typing exit
