To close Visual Basic .NET, you select File, Exit, and Visual Basic .NET shuts itself down. You can also use the Alt+Q key combination or click the X near the upper-right side of the screen to terminate Visual Basic .NET. If you have not yet saved the program you're closing, Visual Basic .NET asks if you'd like to save your work before it closes down.
I encourage you to save the simple program you created in this chapter so you can return to it a little while from now and play around with it some more. I especially encourage you to place a TextBox control on the form and play around with its properties. You might also want to tinker around with the label properties that we have not discussed in this chapter to get a feel for them.
Experimenting with a program like this is a great way to learn about Visual Basic .NET. Don't worry about messing something up. If you see smoke coming out of the computer cabinet just kidding! There's nothing you can change in the Properties window that's going to hurt anything.
Experiment and have fun!
