Sims 4 won't exit

★★ Novice

Everytime I try and exit out of the game it won't exit out, even if i try and click ctrl+alt+delete it won't allow me to click on anything it just stays on the sims 4 game. So I have to just shut my whole computer down in order to get out of it.

Lets try doing a 'Clean Boot' and see if we get the same result afterwards.

Worked for me doing a clean boot. I could exit the game normally. But it is very annoying that this issue is happening. I hope it doesn't occur anymore.

If you can get to the search bar on the computer and it works, type in Task Manager and using that you should be able to force it to close. Hope this helps

This has been happening to me of late too. My solution is to select the control, alt, del keys and then when the options come up I select "sign out." I, of course, sign back in as me and everything seems normal. The game is gone too. Exited, like I had intended. One thing I have noticed is that there is a NEW folder in the "saves" folder called "scratch" which was never there before. The content (389 files) contains lots of .sav and .thm files of various sizes, typically XXX KB's.

This is a temporary folder used while you play. You can delete it.
