[Fixed] Atom does not quit on OS X (screenshots)

This was incredibly annoying, but I found the results deep on a github issue:


  1. Open Security & Privacy
  2. In the bottom-left corner, Unlock to make changes
  3. In the left panel, scroll down to Full Disk Access
  4. In the right panel, scroll down to find Atom and check the box.
  5. Close down the security settings panel
  6. Force-Quit Atom, by holding control + option before clicking the atom icon
