I used Ubuntu 16.04, but in U18.04, when I use the combination of ALT+F4, it closes all windows along with the background windows until it reaches the desktop screen and no other app is running.

It happens mostly when I use VLC. Also for other apps as well.

Expected behavior: It should close only the current window/app.

Actual behavior: It closes other windows along with the current one.

Is this a bug or my mistake?

I don't press keys for a long time, which could cause closing all windows.

    This is not the designed behaviour and I cannot reproduce this. Does it also happen with multiple windows of nautilus or firefox? Perhaps your keyboard repeat delay is set too low, and repeat rate too high.
