What combination of key strokes/presses will unconditionally shut down A97 w/o warning?

I'm a poor typist. I do it all the time. I never
can recreate the killer key-combo if trying.
Its always accidental and it generally results
in my having to redo the last 15-20 minutes
worth of work.

I can't see how you loose 15-20 minutes of work, since each new record you
navigate to means that your last record was saved.

since saving is automatic, the most you can loose is your current record.

however, the standard keys to close a ms-access window are

ctrl-f4 this key has worked for about 15 years now in
windows...going all the way back to windows 3.1
ctrl-f4 is the same as if you clicked on the "x" button for your form.
however, this will still keep ms-access open.

alt-f4 This key will close the appcation....

Its easy - two simple steps. (1) work on a class modul for 15 minutes
without saving it. (2) press the key-combo you described.
Upon reopening the app, you'll notice the work is gone.

Is there any way to disable the key-code combo within Access
97 as a default so it won't accidently happen?

I often lose work when I spill Alberta whisky on my keyboard. Can you help
with that?

Easy! You need more whisky so get out from behind the desk and get
blasted :-)
