Default Exiting a asp 4.5 app

Hi and TIA:

I am trying to exit an application from a menu link.

I have a link in my menu to "Exit Program"

that link takes the user an aspx page with a button.

when the button is clicked the following code is executed

  protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(typeof(Page), "closePage", "<script type='text/JavaScript'> window.close();</script>");
But this "exit page" merely reloads itself.Have tried several online solutions to no avail.

Suggestions on how to close the browser page/end this app would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Cliff,

You can't close a browser with script when that script didn't create or open the window in the first place: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...ndow-in-chrome
