5. How to close the app

Simply exiting the app by clicking the close button on the top right corner won't keep the app closed due to the app's 'resurrection' feature, as the app will just continue to relaunch. This setting is to ensure that the app re-opens after crashes or 'accidental' closes

There are two ways to close the app:

5.1 Open the settings sidebar and then select EXIT PLAYER.

5.2 Right click on the app and select Close.
