Abnormal program shutdown problem

Some programs will not close if the "X" button in the upper right corner is clicked. I have to use the file>exit or right click the button in the lower panel of the desktop. Very peculiar. almost like some programs exclude their use. Not sure where to go.

Any specific programs?

Has it always been this way for you or did this behavior start recently?
