I'm reiterating the question from this question on purpose. I don't have the reputation to write a comment, sorry!

I found a keyboard shortcut for killing all Terminal windows and it prompts me to confirm that I want to close if Vim or some other program is open! Unfortunately, I don't know which keys I press; it happened accidentally.

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04.

This question has been asked in one form or another before, including here. What is the actual keyboard shortcut?

    Do you mean Ctrl+Shift+Q? – dessert Dec 19 '17 at 18:54

Adding to the comment by Sourav Ghosh,

Some more helpful terminal shortcuts:

  • Ctrl+Shift+Q to kill all
  • Ctrl+Shift+W to kill one
  • Ctrl+Shift+N to make a new terminal pointing at the same directory
  • Ctrl+Shift+T to make a new terminal in a tab pointing at the same directory
