ALT + F4 is supposed to work in Counter-Strike GO, as per this answer; however, nothing happens when I press ALT + F4 in the Counter-Strike GO window.

Is there some setting to enable ALT + F4, or will I have to code a workaround?

    Hi Anonymous, welcome to the site! I suspect it has something to do with your computer more so than the actual game, could you add a little more info to your question? specifically, what type of computer (Laptop/desktop & brand), does Alt+F4 work elsewhere? (on a browser window, for example)

  • Are you using a laptop where you need to press Fn?

  • I am not using a laptop keyboard. ALT+F4 works correctly in other applications; it just doesn't work in Counter-Strike GO.

  • Alt + F4 is blocked in the game, to prevent accidental closing, in case one used it in windowed mode.

Alt-F4 doesn't work for me either and I'm on a normal computer. But I'm not sure if Alt-F4 is supposed to work - CS games for years now used F10 to close the game and this works for me.


You can bind some key by console

Example: bind p "exit"


If you're using a laptop, you may need to push the Fn key to actually get to the F4 keypress, meaning the combination becomes Alt+Fn+F4.

Or, as other people have said, CS:GO uses F10, so you may need to push Fn+F10

    @Bora He mentioned that after I'd added this answer (check the timestamps)
