Happens all the time with Finale 2012 in Win 7, 8 and 10 on my system. I just don't trust it. Usually Finale hangs up and I get the message Finale Not Responding, then the usual crash and re-start. Using File -> Close is better, but not always. After 25 years, many (expensive) upgrades, you'd think that there would be zero bugs in this software, wouldn't you? Too bad there isn't a way to return defective software.

Remember that Win 10 hasn't had 25 years of upgrades.

You may or not have come across these but, in case you haven't:

I found running the Compatibility troubleshooter on my older version of Finale - 2011 fixed almost all of my issues with it crashing.

I've also found that the "Stereo Mix" Audio input has to be switched off on one of my computers or else Finale won't even open.

Better than what? What are you doing when it crashes?

Does it prompt you to save your file, and does it get saved before crashing?

You might try renaming finale.ini so it will create a new one, and see if that fixes it.

Do you want to close the program down or just closeout the file you are currently working on?

Give Ctrl (hold)>s>w a try if you are just closing out a file and wish the program to keep running. See if that stops the crashing.
