A Shutdown Items folder was introduced to the classic System Folder of System 7.5 in September 1994. It was a somewhat belated response to the existence of the Startup Items folder.

Usage[]

As the name suggests, any items in this folder would be launched by the Mac automatically upon Shut Down. (This would only be the case if the system underwent a normal shutdown procedure from the Special menu, instead of the power simply being cut off.)

A "farewell sound" or a copy of a backup utility could be placed, to make use of the Shutdown Items folder.
