I cannot close qgis from the keyboard. alt-F4 prompts me but I can only pick "Cancel" or "Save", while "Close without Saving" does not have a keystroke selector.

I'm assigning to Anita in case it was intentional for some design reason ...
Feel free to unassign :)

Do you mean that you are missing the third "close without saving" option when pressing alt-F4?

In general, of course there should be no key combination which just shuts down QGIS without saving and without a prompt.

I get 3 options, but only 2 of them have one letter of the button text underlined. A letter that, when pressed, executes the button action.
